Janel Smith has worked with various celeb beauties including Dawn Richard, Bridget Kelly, Regina Belle and many more. Janel shares why it’s important to always be prepared for any situation:

“They didn’t have Ray J’s barber on the set [of Oxygen’s Bad Girls: All-Star Battle reunion special] and being a set stylist sometimes you have to bring everything with you—you never know who may need a pair of clippers!” she dishes. “I had everything already in my kit so when his barber wasn’t on call, I humbly went over to him. “He said ‘Are you sure you know how to cut?’ I said ‘Yes’ and at the end of the day, he loved it!”
