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, coloring, foiling and working with curly hair. also do weddings and updo's for special events as well as photo shoots. As you can tell from my pics I love fantasy hair and I have a flare for drama. If your getting married then come in to see me and we can create your perfect wedding hairdo. Even though my hair is straight now I have very naturally curly hair and until you've lived with it, you don't know how to work with it.

Beach Wedding

Here are a few pictures of my girlfriend Eileen whose hair I did for her wedding on Anna Marie Island.  She had extensions added to make her hair longer.  She didn't want to wear a veil so what I did was use silver ribbon with wire in it and twisted it around her hair to make it like a crown and added a few flowers that were made to put in her hair that matched her bouquet.  She looked like a Grecian Goddess.  What a beautiul day it was and a very fun wedding.
