Meet Long Island hair colorist and lifelong New Yorker Jane Witkowski!

Why are you a hair colorist?

First and foremost, it is the creative aspect that painting hair allows me. But there are also the relationships I have built over 20 years with the clients that are just as important to me.

Who is your ideal client?

Any woman or man who is up for a change and loves to experiment with their hair color. Makeovers are always the most challenging and satisfying in the final look.

What are your 2 favorite products this month?

I’m loving the new Oribe Imperial Blowout Transformative Styling Creme. It makes a blowout super polished and highlights the color. As far as shampoo and conditioner, Olaplex has been my go-to. It’s super moisturizing, which for a colorist is always something you look for.

What hair trends do you see evolving this winter/spring?

Since the Pandemic changed the way we go about our daily lives, I’m seeing more people going for more natural-looking hair. As far as color, I keep hearing the word brightness when people come to the salon. Whether you’re a blonde, brunette or redhead, I think everyone could use some more brightness these days, and what better way to do that than with your hair color!

What motivates you every day?

I’m a lifelong NY’er. Being a part of this great city motivates me to always contribute to its beauty and style. I LOVE living wholeheartedly for my hometown!
