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.

Base Color and Highlight

On my client Michelle I did her root touch-up and put some scattered foils in with a toner all over.   Then layered her hair to give her more movement.

Multi Color and Haircut

Here is my client Lisa that came in with 2 inches of outgrowth.  She's about 30% gray.  I did a touch-up on her roots and did a partial foil with a toner in between the foils.  Then I took some of the heaviness out of her hair by putting in some long layers.  The color turned out beautiful.
