There was no missing Janjay Sherman in a sea of models outside Milk Studios in New York City. The music manager was giving us Harlem-born rapper Azealia Banks vibes with her matching purple hair and lipstick, but she shocked us with the real inspiration behind her look.
"I was on Instagram and saw that a random girl had posted a hairstyle like this. I was like 'Thank you, random stranger -- I am going to steal your hairstyle,'" said Sherman. "It's a little Miley Cyrus but I'm like, you know what, I'm feeling it today."
Even though this is an extreme 'do, Sherman is really low-maintenance when it comes to hair care. She uses Wen Conditioning Cleanser instead of traditional shampoos that tend to strip essential oils from hair. And she's even found a way to get more out of her hair conditioner.
"I'm always re-dying my hair because it's purple, which fades easily. So sometimes I'll get a Pantene Pro-V Conditioner and put my hair color in it. And then I condition it with the color for a while and rinse it out," she said. How savvy?
