Janna Jahr
Janna JahrOwner/Nail Artist/Educator
Welcome! I am Janna Jahr Owner/operator of the Nail Department & More as well as being an educator and licensed nail technician. I have been in the beauty industry for 20+ years and provide a variety of services including acrylics, gels, gel polish, dip , poly gel, manicures and pedicures. I specialize in design nails with custom artwork as well as the crisp pink and white application of an acrylic classic.

I received my training from Scot Lewis Cosmetology School where I then went on to work at Scot Lewis Salon, Metropolitan nails and Studio 2000. In 2001 I opened my own salon, Hands & Tans Boutique. I further continued my training by joining Entity Beauty as an Educator- Nail Artist in 2006 where I had the opportunity to travel across the country working and training with many of the greats in the industry. By 2011 I had expanded my business and the Nail Department was established. Then in 2019 I was presented with the opportunity to create a space for small business owners like myself in the beauty industry to have their own space, be their own boss and be able to thrive in a salon like environment. So with much passion and dedication my dream became a reality and The Nail Department and More was established. Here we have women from every part of the beauty industry able to work independently in one space. At the Nail Department and More we look forward to helping you with all of your beauty needs!
