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!
