Call Sarah if you need a specialist in lightening hair. Sarah brings her love of blonde hair to an amazing reality when she creates that special dimension and tone for your style.

Brandy Burkholder - Curl Specialist 

Hi! I'm Brandy! I'm a small-town Kansas girl who loves Jesus, my family, and all things hair.  From as early as I can remember I knew I was meant to be a stylist.  Growing up I practiced my skills on myself and anyone who would let me (shout out to my brothers and sister)! In 2004 I completed cosmetology school and began building my dream career.  While I enjoyed all aspects of hair, I soon realized that I especially found joy in helping people discover their natural curls and how to care for them.  Thus, my quest to learn all things curls was born.  Helping people accept their natural texture has truly become my passion. There is nothing more rewarding as a stylist than helping someone's inner beauty reflect through as they embrace who God designed them to be.  The sparkle in someone's eyes as they discover how beautiful they truly are .... well, it's indescribable.  I live for those moments which drives me to continue learning and growing as a Curl Specialist!
