PROFESSIONAL FACTS: Brenda Won a trip for exceptional managerial skills and high volume performance as well as Won 1 of 2 colorist awards given to Canadian artist. She has volunteered make-up and hair for two years for the Saskatchewan Sports Bike promotional calendars to help raise awareness and funds for breast cancer. Brenda was a honored guest speaker for Christian Women's banquet to explain the importance of the right color and cut for an individual. I have Offered my services for a couple years to do before and after makeovers for the Women's Christian Club "Spring into Fashion" weekend.

ABOUT BRENDA: I have enjoyed doing hair my whole life. Growing up in a large family and being on a farm. It was traditional for the oldest in the family to acquire hair skills to help out with the siblings! Voila, my journey began as I realized I was pretty darn good at it, and really enjoyed it also! Friends began to ask my sisters, "who does your hair" and before I knew it I had others wanting me to try out a new look for them also! I came to the city to look for employment and found there was nothing that stirred my soul like doing hair, so opted in for the training and career in cosmetology and have never looked back. I remember asking myself, "I wonder when I might get tired of doing hair, the same thing over and over?" But then I was soon to realize that our industry is ever evolving and is a 'Constant' change and movement of the old and the new blended together to create the NOW look!! It's been close to 35 years now and the industry has never let me down. I jump up everyday ready to go do hair, play with makeup, consult with new and already good friends and clients. Do some specialty work with the laser! What more could a girl want? I get paid everyday to do something that I LOVE and have so much passion for!
