Meet Jana Bunge of Jana and Co. Makeup and Hair Design in Simi Valley

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jana Bunge.

Jana, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
My father was a hairdresser – so I’ve grown up in and around the beauty business! I’ve been a working professional in the industry since 1984. My background being in commercial, video and print work. I began to include providing makeup/hairstyling for weddings in 2001. As the years progressed, I’ve added makeup/hair artists to our team. Currently, we service Ventura, Santa Barbara, LA and Orange Counties – and we are blessed to have the most fabulous brides and bridal parties. We feel honored share in the most important day of their lives!

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It’s been a steady road – sometimes smooth and sometimes very rocky! The best thing to remember that this is a “service” business – and meeting the needs of our clients is of utmost importance. And this business is about relationships…building and nurturing relationships between our clients, fellow vendors and artist teams.

Jana and Co. Makeup and Hair Design – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Jana and Co. Makeup and Hair Design provides onsite makeup and hair services for weddings, special events, productions, as well as offering group and private instruction. Being in business for 33 years, we are known for our quality work, personable artist teams, and meeting and surpassing the needs of each client we come in contact with. I am proud and honored to have such wonderful artists to work alongside me – as we strive to do our best to create an atmosphere of calm during what can often be a very stressful time in the life of a bride to be! The “pre-production” work that I do prior to any event is what sets us aside from many other companies. Creating specific timelines, storyboards of clients with vision pics, and having our artist teams arriving on site fully prepared (i.e. tables, chairs, electrical, all equipment and products, etc.). All of this combined will create a calm work atmosphere and seamless wedding day.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
It’s hard to define just one particular moment of my career! Honestly, when I think of the proudest I’ve been – it’s when I see and hear clients who’ve spoken so highly of the company, i.e. our stellar reviews. I’m proud, and humbled at the same time.
