Janine Jarman; Owner, Hairroin Salon; Hollywood, California
Janine Jarman is one energetic dynamo—she’s a celebrity stylist; founder/owner of Hairroin Salon in Hollywood; the West Coast spokesperson for Sebastian Professional; and a member of the five-person Sebastian Design team. Jarman’s clients aren’t the only celebrities in her salon though—she took a turn in the spotlight herself in 2010 as a contestant on the Bravo reality TV show, “Shear Genius.” Hairroin was born out of Jarman’s vision for a unique ‘un-salon’ committed to the absolute mastery of hair artistry—a place where fashion-forward industry types working in front of behind the camera can get inspired looks.
Do you believe a woman in the professional beauty industry can “have it all?” And, what does that mean to you?
“I do believe a woman can have it all! “All” is different depending on whom you ask though. For me,it’s having balance between home and work,as well as growing year by year. It’s also the blessed and content feeling that only pushing yourself can achieve.”
In the pursuit of “having it all,” what sacrifices have you had to make, if any?
“I try my best to constantly remind myself there is no great reward without great sacrifice. It’s what separates us in this world. I guess one of the biggest sacrifices I madewas whizzing through my 20s and not having much of a social life.Also,I’m not totally in charge of my schedule. If there is an award show or something that coincides with a social obligation, I often have to decline the fun event to work. I also work long hours in order to squeeze it all in. I’mgratefulI have a patient and understanding husband,family and friends.
If we were looking through a scrapbook of your life, what would be your favorite page?
“It would have to be my wedding day. I never thought I would get married—honestly,I didn’t think I could squeeze one more thing in, let alone find someone who could put up with my demanding schedule. But Matt Wolcott swept me off my feet and helped me find some much-needed balance.”
If we were looking through a scrapbook of your life, what page would you want to rewrite?
“The first few years where I did alot of traveling for my career and never extended my stay. I was so work-focused. I always tell my siblings and staff to travel when they’re young—heck, always travel!”
