Before she was Washington Square’s first hair school graduate, Brandi (she/her) was collaborating with friends in her childhood bedroom. Hearing how they wanted to feel, poring over photos of emo band hairstyles, and experimenting until she had alchemized the two shaped her commitment to listening. To this day, Brandi loves working with anyone who is figuring out where they fit in, especially teenagers!
For Brandi, hair is a means to center play and imagination in her care for other people. Exchanging ideas and cultivating joy are core to her approach. Sometimes, she invites clients to sketch with her to figure out where they’re headed. Brandi also loves training emerging stylists alongside Allie and Shayne, and is ever-motivated by curiosity for what’s next. Brandi will always have a soft spot for the emo culture that brought her to hair. She also appreciates seemingly effortless, elegant-but-lived-in styles tailored to suit your needs. Outside of the studio, Brandi enjoys cooking and trying anything she hasn’t done before.
