After beauty school, I worked at a few different salons but I never felt like I found the perfect fit for me. I knew I could get more out of this industry so I decided to create that environment for myself and opened my own salon suite, Strand Hair Studio. I truly love what I do, hair is my passion, and I’m so grateful for the amazing clients that support my dreams. During the week you can find me in my salon cutting, coloring, and sewing extensions, and on the weekends you’ll find me getting brides ready to walk down the aisle.
In 2019, I switched gears a little bit to start focusing on education. Being an educator has been a goal of mine since beauty school. I remember sitting in class when they would bring in platform artists and I always thought, “THAT’S what I want to do.” I began getting some traction sharing business tips for bridal hairstylists on Instagram and that’s when my signature course, The Business of Bridal Hair was born. BBH is all about running a successful business as a bridal stylist and being confident in modern updos and styles, because brides don’t ask for a spikey 90’s updos anymore ;) I’m currently in the process of launching BBH online and I could not be more excited! Be sure to follow along on Instagram (@harleydoeshair_) for updates of when the course launches.
In my free time, I love a good gym session (fun fact: I ran cross country and track in high school and college), hanging out with my two dogs and husband, and taking care of my many house plants.
I have always been interested in hair and beauty since I was a little girl. I loved doing my friends hair for prom or experimenting with hair color in the bathroom. I started beauty school is 2013 and it’s been a wild ride ever since. A couple of my friends were getting married around that time and asked me to do their hair. This turned into a few more people asking me- it started snowballing from there and now I’m coming up on my 200th wedding! So crazy. I love working with brides and being a part of something so special in their lives.
