Janine Jarman, Will You Marry Me?

Sebastian Professional lead stylist Janine Jarman is one of my very favorite hairstylists in the world. I fell in love with her on Shear Genius last season and frequently daydream about sitting in her chair for a couple of hours. In true Janine fashion, she knocked it out of the park at the ELLE Style 360 fashion shows at the Metropolitan Pavilion on September 12-14. It’s not very often that I covet runway hair for my own; it’s usually a tad avant garde for my daily routine, but Janine’s styles for the Walter, Indashio, and Bebe shows left me wanting more more MORE.

Take a look at some of her gorgeous styles from the event!

Indashio Inspiration:

Welcoming the spring/summer ’11 season with fun splashes of bold color, Indashio’s collection brought out the inner artist through sexy silhouettes and fabrics with movement.

The Hair Look:

For big, voluminous hair with a matte finish and funky flair, Janine recommends taking the following steps:
1. Prep hair with Sebastian Professional Thickefy Foam then blow-dry with a round brush, keeping a middle part.
2. Section out hair from brow bone down, spraying each with Sebastian Professional Shine Define and, using a 1” curling iron, wrap-curl hair away from the face.
3. Section out the top mohawk sections of hair and set in large Velcro rollers going back.
4. After setting for about 10 minutes, take rollers down, flip head over and spray hair with a generous amount of Sebastian Professional Shaper Zero Gravity for unkempt, matte texture.
5. Back comb select pieces to add width and volume to the total look and piece out the ends for defined waves. Finish the look with another spritz of Sebastian Professional Shaper Zero Gravity.

Walter Inspiration:
The spring/summer ’11 collection featured pieces that gradually moved from daytime to evening to morning hues, with blues and dark grays running together and fading into lighter, softer colors. Select pieces evoked a subtle nautical influence, nodding to the sheen of the shore and the haze of the coastline.

The Hair Look:
The hair look for Walter complemented the collection without distracting from the multi-layered, built-up garments. Janine crafted a look that was clean, healthy and not overly contrived with a bit of airiness and natural movement.
1. Prep the hair with Sebastian Professional Potion 9 focusing on hydrating the ends for a clean polish.
2. Spray Sebastian Professional Volupt Spray from root to end for natural, touchably soft volume and blow-dry with a paddle brush.
3. Once completely dry, spritz a light amount of Sebastian Professional Trilliant for thermal protection and added shine and flat iron only the ends.
4. Part hair down the middle and then pin front sections of hair behind ears dropping hair over the ears a bit to cover the pins.

Bebe Inspiration:
Like a breath of fresh air, Bebe’s spring/summer ’11 collection called to mind a beachy Brigitte Bardot with a bright glow and creamy hues. The final look was not too literal, but rather healthy and youthful.

The Hair Look:
At Bebe’s spring/summer ’11 fashion show, Janine crafted coifs that were smooth and soft with waves and feathered fringe. Jarman suggests the following tips for recreating this runway look:
1. Run a palm full of Sebastian Professional Mousse Forte through strands from roots to ends. Cocktail with Sebastian Professional Potion 9 to hydrate dry damaged locks and give hair natural, light-weight shine.
2. Blow-dry with a round brush for added volume, applying Sebastian Professional Texturizer to fine hair if additional texture and volume is needed.
3. Set hair in sections with large Velcro rollers, keeping the middle part for a little bit of ‘70s style.
4. Spray with Sebastian Professional Shaper Zero Gravity for feather-light, brushable control and let hair set in rollers for about 15 minutes.
5. Take down rollers and shake out curls; smooth hair to midway and feather pieces away from the face.
6. Curl select pieces with a ¾” curling iron for more erratic texture.

    WOW! Janine Jarman has been my favorite hairstylist since I moved to LA. Her salon, Hairroin salon in Hollywood is probably the most beautiful boutique salon I have ever been into. This looks amazing! Thank you for sharing!

    Janine Jarman is the BOMB! I drive all the way from Newport Beach to get my hair done by her at Hairroin Salon! Her creativity with attention to femininity always comes together, making my hair look fabulous and healthy! So stoked that NY Fashion Week got to know her!
