Owner & Stylist

Meet Janae, founder and number one fan of Salon Kathleen. Janae has been mastering her craft as a hairdresser since 1997. She opened Salon Kathleen in 2006, and has cultivated a beautiful, loving, and supportive environment. Salon Kathleen has been awarded “Best of the Plateau” by the community, as well as Top 100 L’Oreal Pro Salons in the country. We are very proud of this achievement!!

Hairdressing has always been one of Janae’s passions. As passionate as she is, she has an extensive education background achieving credentials such as L’Oreal Color Specialist, L’Oreal Color Ambassador, L’Oreal Pro Stylist and Certified Handtied Extension Specialist.

Handtied extensions is one of Janae’s most prized services. She enjoys the hard work and delicate approach to the service, but ultimately seeing her guests’ excitement and happiness at the end is what tugs on her heart strings the most. Janae loves enhancing her guests’ “lived-in” natural color by adding dimension and texture. From blondes to brunettes, and everything in between, Janae loves to customize her guests’ hair color to match their personality and compliment their style, but has admitted balayage is definitely her favorite technique.

Education to further her work has always been very important to Janae throughout her career. Janae enjoys a challenge and is always striving to be the very best she can possibly be in all aspects of her life. Her dedication to our service providers by providing them with the best education and elevating them to the next level is unmatched. Her top priority is to ensure confidence in our service providers by consistently continuing their education, whether this be by Janae herself, or by one of our L’Oreal educators.

When Janae is not at the salon, you can find her spending quality time with her husband Ryan, two boys Willie and Waylon, and her two cherished Frenchies Charlie and Gia. Janae enjoys golfing with her family and everything outdoors, finding time for a good run or workout.
