My name is Janet Waddell, and I'm the owner of the Janet Waddell Hair Salon in Gramercy Park here in New York City. I've been cutting hair for a long, long time, and I've worked with some of the best people in the industry.

I got my start with Vidal Sassoon, the legendary Vidal Sassoon. I worked for many, many years around the world teaching and opening salons and schools and creating collections and looking after clients and all kinds of things. It was amazing.

I then joined the John Barrett salon in Bergdorf Goodman here in New York. I had a wonderful time. I stayed with John for about eight years. I was his education director and senior stylist.

Then about five years ago I branched out on my own, and I enjoy doing hair cutting. I also work a lot with wigs and hair additions for those women that have problems with thinning hair for various medical reasons, which is wonderful work to be doing. I have a very, very full clientele.

A couple of year ago, I started manufacturing my own product line, which is doing great. People love it. It's got a big fan club, and I'm expanding on that as we speak.

You can check out my website, which is simply You can read all about me. You can read about the salon, find out where it is, and you can also book online right from the website.

So now I'd like to show you an array of hair cutting techniques. Let's get to work.
