58 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | FEBRUARY 2019 SALON: House of Gold Salon, Netcong, New Jersey WHY I BECAME A STYLIST: As a child, I played salon by cutting my American Girl dolls' hair. I jumped into beauty after graduating college, and haven't looked back. FAVE TRENDING TECHNIQUE: Foilayage with a shadow root, because it's best for max brightness yet also allows for softer grow-out. FUTURE GAME PLAN: Keep up with emerging trends, buy a house, start a family. WHY SHE'S A STAR: "One of the kindest women you'll meet, Marianne inspires with more than just hair—although her foilayage skills are incredible. Beautiful braids and blended blondes combined with her uplifting nature make her a true asset." —Aly Davis @alydavishair, R Cribb the Salon, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina SALON: Independent stylist based in Los Angeles and Charlotte, North Carolina WHY I BECAME A STYLIST: I'd buy box dye from the grocery store and sneak into my bathroom to emerge a different color every few months. My mom didn't always approve, but that never stopped me. HARDEST PART OF BEING A NEW(ISH) HAIRDRESSER: From ongoing education to traveling for hair shows to moving across the country, I've invested heavily in my career. But when you're new, you're not always taken seriously. FUTURE GAME PLAN: Open a salon where artists can come together to design and inspire. WHY SHE'S A STAR: "It's hard to stand out in an industry so fi lled with talent, especially as we're easily exposed to great work on social media. It takes being fearless, unique and authentic—aka, Kelsey." —Rebecca Taylor @rebeccataylorhair, salon suite in West Hollywood, California SALON: Jacob K Hair, Atlanta FAVE TRENDING TECHNIQUE: The '70s French girl vibe: wing-y curtain styles with fringe. FUTURE GAME PLAN: Gain more success and confi dence as an educator with my brand, KATEducation. Public speaking is intimidating, but the fulfi llment I get from sharing knowledge and inspiring others far outweighs that fear. I FIND INSPIRATION: In anything that conjures feeling. My craft is a serious emotional outlet, and when I'm totally connected to my work everything else falls away. WHY SHE'S A STAR: "Licensed only four years, Kate has amassed over 40,000 social media followers and is on her way to becoming a six-fi gure stylist booked by Cosmoprof for KATEducation, teaching classes across the country." —Jacob Khan @jacobhkhan, Jacob K Hair, Roswell, Georgia SALON: Gina Bianca Hair, Plantsville, Connecticut STYLING SPECIALTY: I could highlight for days: foil work, platinum blondes, vivids, and color corrections. HARDEST PART OF BEING A NEW(ISH) HAIRDRESSER: 2018 will wrap my fi rst full year on the fl oor. Every day I learn something new—but also discover fresh challenges. Confi dence is hard when starting out, yet also essential to feeling comfortable. FUN FACT THAT MAY SURPRISE YOU: Before doing hair, I double-majored in mathematics and philosophy. WHY SHE'S A STAR: "Megan takes excellent care of her guests and she shares tons of knowledge on social media in her breakdowns. She's worth a follow and one to watch." —Gina Bianca @the_hair_doctor, Gina Bianca Hair, Plantsville, Connecticut RISING STAR: Kate Adams @kateshahanadams RISING STAR: Kelsey Deuel @kelseydeuelhair RISING STAR: Marianne Pellek @mariannehairstylist RISING STAR: Megan Aloisi @blondenbougie
