About Me

My photo
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.

Kathy's Color

This is my client Kathy.  I did a root touch-up with Redken Color Gels to make her a copper brown.  Then I did a few sunkist foils around her face and scattered a few very finely weaved foils on top with Redken ShadesEQ in between the foils.  When the foils were done I took the bleach off and pulled the color through the rest of her hair for 5 min to tone the highlights.  Then I gave her a haircut layering her hair and angling it around her face to soften the shape up and a blowdry.  It turned out beautiful and looks very natural.
