Janet Waddell

Janet Waddell was born in Lancaster, UK. She began her hairstyling training at Vidal Sassoon in London and quickly became a rising star within the company, traveling extensively internationally to teach the legendary Vidal Sassoon technique.
Janet’s destinations included Paris, Milan, Prague, Lisbon, Puerto Rico and Mexico City just to name a few highlights of her global teaching experiences. She left the UK permanently after being invited to San Francisco to open a Vidal Sassoon salon and school.
A move to New York quickly followed, where Allure magazine named her best haircutter NYC and Esquire magazine credited her as the year’s best Men’s hair expert.When John Barrett, well-known celebrity hair guru and television personality invited her to become his Education Director and Senior Stylist, she made a move to his Bergdorf Goodman location.

After eight years of building a considerable client following, Janet opened her own acclaimed Gramercy Park boutique studio, the eponymously named, Janet Waddell New York. Her understanding of hair quality and texture and the needs of her many clients led her to finally launch a branded product line which serves as her vision to create hair care that truly produces results. Janet’s accumulated wealth of knowledge and expertise in the field has allowed her to develop products that serve the consumers’ hair needs first.

Janet has sourced world-class indigenous ingredients, scientifically proven and peer-reviewed in order to create a first-class hair care product line.
The product collection launched December 2009 and consists of the Janet Waddell New York branded shampoo, conditioner and styling balm appropriately named Gorgeous, Flawless and Genius.
