Great day at the Realize Bradenton Art Fair. Sold three of my paintings. Only two of them pictured here.
- Bradenton, Florida, United States
- My name is Kelly Harmsen and I've been a licensed Cosmetologist since 1991. Born and raised in Chicago Heights, Illinois now living in Bradenton, Florida and owner of my own hair & art salon. I started at eight years old working in my Dad's hair salon and loving it. While all of the other kids were reading Dr. Seuss I was readng Vidal Sassoon. After graduating from Beauty School I started assisting at a salon that offered additional education to further my career. I became heavily involved in RUSK after attending classes with my boss to watch them cut hair. I consider Irvine Rusk to be my biggest inspiration along with my Dad. I love what I do and if you come to visit me hopefully you will too. I specialize in cutting, corrective coloring, foiling and working with curly hair. I have very naturally curly hair myself and until you live with curly hair you don't understand it. I love helping someone to love their curly hair also.

These are before and after pictures of my client's color. She came in and her hair was faded as you can see in the top left picture, so I did a base color and then did some highlights and lowlights to give her more dimension. I used Framesi Futura for her base color and then DeColorB for her highlights and Framesi 2001 for her lowlights.
These are before and after pictures that I did on my client. I started with a base color to cover the gray and then did some highlights to give her more dimension.

Well it's official I have opened my own hair and art salon. I'm super excited. It will be open for business next Tuesday but will still be a while before I get my artwork and products for sale in there. It's called Bossa Nova Hair & Art Salon.
