Last Friday I had the please of working with Russet from Ecovogue 365 for the Fashion Couture Show at Sarasota Fashion Week. She is a designer and her clothes are amazing. The beautiful dresses at the bottom picture are all from Russet. You can visit her website at http://www.ecovogue365.com/. Here is some of my work that I did on one of the models. Her name is Liz Dobbins and she was so great. She sat there for a couple hours while I worked on her head. I created a headpiece made out of her hair with cotton as the base underneath so it wasn't too heavy for her. Then I used a crimper to create a textured basketweave effect on the outside. Here are the beginning to end photos.
- 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.
