Janelle Brown

Owner, stylist, Janelle Brown, graduated in 2002 from Midwest College of cosmetology. New friendships formed during that time, and as they parted ways they vowed that “someday we’ll have our own salon together”

In preparation for that day, Janelle has spent the past 15 years exploring every opportunity the beauty industry has to offer and surrounding herself with some of the industry’s best mentors from coast to coast. From skin care and nails, to hair and salon management, Janelle prides herself in being well rounded in the beauty industry. For the last 8 years, Janelle worked as an educator for Paul Mitchell the School. Being a teacher, mentor and coach for young professionals pushed her to fine tune her technical skills and find new ways to take customer service to the next level. Paul Mitchell helped Janelle realize her true passion is being behind the chair to educate and beautify her guests!

In May of 2016 Janelle shifted her focus back to the salon world. Quickly after reconnecting with her guests, the next move became obvious. With the love & support of her visionary husband, Janelle's dream has become a reality that she is excited to share with the Bloomington/Normal community.

She is ready to take the beauty industry in Bloomington/Normal in a new direction….to the EASTSIDE HAIR STUDIO!
