*******UPDATE: I have closed my salon for now and not sure if I will open up at another location or not.*********
Welcome to Bossa Nova Hair & Art Salon. It's an eclectic place where I create beautiful hair and also have my handmade abstract artwork and beaded jewelry available for sale. By Appointment Only.
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.
Many of you might not know this but along with being a hair stylist I'm also an abstract artist. I love to paint so I wanted to share my other website with you where I sell my artwork. It's at www.kmhartgallery.com so come visit. If you see something you like that is already sold you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will remake it. Thanks alot..
