      Planet Janet Rules   07/07/2015

      General Rules for Planet Janet Welcome to Planet Janet! The main objective of this board is to express your love for Janet, your opinions, and to interact with an important segment of the Janet fandom.  To enjoy your experience here, below are general rules and guidelines to make your experience here be successful: The N Word Please be aware that the N word is going to be filtered on this forum. Most importantly, this word is not acceptable on this forum in any form; therefore, if it is used again by ANY member on here, it will result in an immediate and permanent ban. Consider this the first, only, and last warning regarding this. Music Download | Copyright Infringement Illegal download links to music from any artist are not permissible to be posted on this forum at any time. If you have posted an illegal download link, you must take it down immediately. Failure to remove the links, and/or subsequent, repeated offenses will result in disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban from the forum. Fan Threads of Other Artists Generally, we like to keep threads and/or topics about other artists within an Official Artist Thread.  This helps to eliminate clutter and redundancy throughout the forum and allow a one-stop shop to view comments on that particular artist not pertaining to Janet.  If there is HUGE news related to an artist and generates a lot of discussion, it is okay to have a standalone thread on that topic outside of the Official Thread. A good debate is OKAY in the Official Threads of other artists.  Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members.  Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist.  This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense.  If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action.  Please utilize this announcement as a first warning. Personal Attacks

      Each member has a warning percentage - most of them are at zero right now but a few have been warned before. Each warning is worth 10%, and once it gets to 100% the member is automatically banned from the forum. 

      Each time a member gets into an argument with another member that includes personal attacks, if it is reported or viewed by a member of the moderating team, each participant in the personal attack will get an increase in their warning percentage.  They will be notified via PM, and, prior to posting again, will receive a receipt acknowledging that warning before they can post again. The Moderating Team will never divulge a member's warn percentages on the forum or to other members.

      What this means is you are now responsible for your own future on this forum. The Moderating Team will not keep asking you to stop and being ignored. Learn to let things go and learn to moderate yourself before posting; if you end up banned it will be your own fault. Personal attacks and include attacks on one’s race, age, religious creed, color, gender, national origin, physical, mental or visual disability, medical condition, ancestry, marital and military status, pregnancy or sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and general physical appearance/looks. Depending on the nature of the personal attack there will be corrective action up and including permanent banning. If you have any inquiries about your warning percentage, feel free to PM a mod for an answer. If you need any clarification on the rules, feel free to reach out to The Moderating Team.

Interview with Janets hairstylist on the tour

The Hair Hits the Tour: Behind the Velvet Rope With Cassidy Blaine

“I’m like—that’s Janet Jackson! I do the cabbage patch and everything every time I see her!”

So says Cassidy Blaine, who’s been turning out sick-ass hairstyles for Miss Jackson (if you’re nasty) and her touring crew for the last decade. And we can’t blame her; Jackson is indisputably an icon. You know it, and we know it.

Ms. Blaine, a West Hollywood resident hailing from Hawaii, got her big break when her childhood friend, legendary choreographer and longtime Jackson collaborator Gil Duldulao, called her to groom Jackson’s background dancers. Blaine’s talent and generally laid-back demeanor—which belies her fiery passion for hair—quickly secured her a place on the team.

Today, Blaine works directly with key hairdresser Janet Zeiton on Jackson’s videos, ad campaigns and tours. The Glow Up landed an interview with Blaine just as she touched down from the superstar’s latest U.S. State of the World Tour to find out about the methods behind how Janet stays in control—of her hair.

The Glow Up: Let’s get right to it: Every woman wants Janet Jackson icon-status hair that looks effortless and lasts when they hit the dance floor.

Cassidy Blaine: OK, I got you. Janet has a lot of hair and a beautiful tight curl that’s past her shoulders when you straighten it. There’d be no way she could have kept her hair if—like a lot of these celebrities and entertainers—she constantly put extensions and stuff in her hair. It takes over and wears out and tears up the hair. So she really tries to avoid that, and stays using her natural hair.

TGU: What’s the secret?

CB: So, we made a ponytail for her. I used similar textures to her hair. I mixed pieces of hair; some a little bit more lengthy and not so curly, and some more tight.

TGU: What’s the system for attaching the ponytail?

CB: Well, basically, the piece that I created for her, it’s very easy-breezy, like putting on a scrunchy. It’s a drawstring that encases the bun, and two tiny combs cinch in a little bit. And we just kind of cross-pin it. We only use open granny pins and avoid bobby pins. If we had to be on a time clock ... 10-15 minutes, and it’s done.

TGU: What products do you use?

CB: Janet’s key hairdresser, Janet Zeitoun, just developed her own line called SOTAH (State of the Art Hair). It’s a great product. I used their hydrating cream to style. I also use Sebastian Ultra-Firm Finishing Hairspray, because it doesn’t flake up when we try to attach it to Janet’s bun.

TGU: How do you get her hair straight?

CB: I blow it out! My blow-dryer’s like a gun. If anybody wants to use my blow-dryer ... “Um, I think not.” Because any wrong movement—like just dropping it once—could ruin it.

TGU: And what do you use for products for blowouts?

CB: I use SOTAH. You have to get a Dyson blow-dryer from Sephora because they have their own warranty on top of it, so if something goes wrong, they get it back to you faster.

TGU: What’s your favorite hairstyle that you’ve done on her?

CB: 2009 Jingle Ball London. It was gorgeous. Google it, girl!

TGU: How do dancers keep their hair looking good when they’re performing?

CB: Wigs! Because they don’t have to use hair spray. I stress never to use too much product when you’re trying to achieve a style, because they get filmy.

TGU: Tell me about what it’s like to do hair on Janet’s level?

CB: I’m living a prayer that I put into action, and my friends helped me get there. Every time I’m around the person that Janet is, it makes me younger. She shows me that life is exactly the way it’s supposed to be: Sometimes you get a break here and there. She walks her life as it was presented to her, and no matter what she’s going through, she always rises to the occasion.
