Janina Cannon HAIR & MAKEUP ARTIST

WHAT YEAR DID YOU START DOING HAIR? 1999

 

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GET INTO THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY? I would have to say my mom. As long as I can remember I have been doing my family and friends' hair. I would color and cut their hair in my room in my high school days (not sure why they trusted me). I also did most of my friends' hair for prom!

 

When I moved to California I was going to Cuesta College to be a teacher and I was paying out of state tuition. My mom asked me if I wanted to try beauty school until my residency (I guess she saw something in me). I was hesitant because beauty school wasn't as cool as it is now. I am so glad I went for it because I couldn't imagine doing any other career. I still get the teaching aspect that I love and the creativity that I strive for! It's the best of both worlds!

 

WHO ARE YOUR STYLE ICONS? Prince (he was never afraid to be different) & Diana Ross because she always rocked her big hair!

 

WHAT STYLES AND HAIR TYPES DO YOU MOST ENJOY CREATING AND WORKING WITH? I can't limit myself to a certain style. I enjoy creating all different hair styles and working with all kinds of hair types. You become a better stylist knowing how to create from all different hair canvases. I don't like to put myself in a box.

 

FAVORITE Bb. PRODUCT: For my clients I love Brilliantine! It's one of my favorite finishing products. For myself, too many to count! Bumble has amazing products.

 

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS: Throughout my career I have kept my education very current. Early in my career I assisted a very talented hairstylist. I definitely learned a lot from him. I have also worked with Alterna's platform artists. I have gone to New York multiple times to Bumble and bumble University. I was trained on color and cutting with extensive hands on training. I take as many hair and makeup classes as I can every year. I love being challenged and finding new techniques to keep me excited and to wow my clients! We can never stop learning!
