My visit with Janet was amazing! It’s always a pleasure to catch up with Janet and hear about the conferences she’s teaching and the papers she’s writing.
"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."
Janet has been caring for my fine, curly, thinning hair for years. Based on Janet’s advice, my hair is now longer, fuller and healthier than it has ever been. I was in for my annual Brazilian Blow Out about a month ago. My hair looks amazing, is super easy to care for and totally withstood yesterday’s crazy heat and humidity. I can’t wait to take my new Do to the beach!
Thank you, Janet!

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.
I am a professional hairdresser and experimental archaeologist specializing in the recreation of ancient Roman, Greek and other archaic hairstyles. I use period appropriate tools and techniques and live models. I study surviving art works, portraiture, artifacts, and primary sources to understand the mechanics and role of ancient hair care and grooming in historical, social and cultural context. I began
my research in 2001; my work is published in the Journal of Roman Archaeology and EXARC Journal. I present my research, with live model demonstrations, at academic conferences, schools and museums. I have a popular YouTube channel devoted to ancient roman and other archaic hairstyles.
