Janelle Salon ID

Janelle Hipper

With over 17 years in the industry and over 10 years owning Salon ID I know how important it is to take the time to listen to your hair desires. Finding a hair salon and a hair stylist you trust is no easy task. Similarly to dating, you have to play the field a bit, get together a couple of times and ultimately decide whether they're worth settling down with. The idea of this relationship inspired me to start Salon Id, where I know all my clients are listened to and leave satisfied. Hopefully, you're prepared for a long-term, loving, and committed relationship, because it is my guarantee that’s what you're going to get at Salon ID.

Here's to love, health, happiness, a trusting environment and really, really great hair.

I am a Senior Stylist at Salon ID and I love meeting new people, playing with new techniques and mastering different colours - colouring is my favourite! I have always found this career to be exciting and interesting. I started hairdressing in 2011, and since starting at Salon ID in 2015, my knowledge of hairdressing has evolved incredibly thanks to our salons dedication to training, our amazing team, my loyal clients, and my love of the industry. We are a salon that is continually growing and keeping up with the trends and this is essential to enjoying what I do all day every day. I love seeing the end goal come to fruition, but the journey is just as important. I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve that perfect colour.
