I have been licensed for 17 years.
I do my best to create the perfect balance of cut, color and texture to bring out the best in your face shape, features. Whether you want a full makeover or just a tweak, I honestly listen to your needs and desires and will propose realistic solutions that work for YOU, whether you carry a curling iron in your desk or you don’t even own a comb.
I’ve been a stylist since 1991, and can’t think of anything else I’d rather do. Hairdressing is always new, always interesting and I meet such great people! I am fluent in Italian, with advanced training in Florence, Italy; London, UK; and New York.
I love cutting, color, styling, braiding, wedding updos and historical hairdressing—(I frequently work with local theater companies designing wigs and makeup). I am a published author in the field of experimental archaeologist (Journal of Roman Archaeology and Journal of Experimental Archaeology), and my work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, on NPR, National Geographic Television and the BBC. I regularly lecture at colleges and museums. Check out my youtube channel devoted to historical hairdressing at: https://www.youtube.com/user/jntvstp
"I just want to send a thank you to Janet for being such a talented artist. Janet has been doing my hair for the last several years. She always takes the time to answer questions and make sure you understand, as well as to find out exactly what your concerns or needs are. She always meets those needs with precision and excellence."

I wanted to send my positive feedback regarding my recent appointments with Janet. She has always been professional and personable, and several months ago was the first time I explored color - going from dark brown to bleach blonde - and I only did so because I felt confident in her technique and the salon's overall quality. From simple trims to more detailed cuts to drastic color changes, Janet has always been exceptional and I look forward to being a consistent client as long as I live in Baltimore.
