About Me

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.

Balayage/Highlight - Toner - Haircut Blowdry

This is my beautiful niece who hadn't had her hair colored in about six months and didn't want anything too noticeable because she was looking for a part-time job while still in high school.

I started with some foils around her face and went backward on her head so the front would be the lightest to look like she had been at the beach.  I purposely wanted them to be darker through the back and underneath of her hair.  I did some very random thick & thin pieces to make it very organic looking and yet it all blended together.  Then I toned her to take some of the warmth out of her hair but not all of it.  I love the way it turned out and so did she.  Hope she gets the job she is interviewing for.
