Brandi Deleshaw

Not only was Brandi (she/her) our first apprentice, she is now our Director of Education.

   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 loves training emerging stylists in our apprentice program, 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 haircuts tailored to suit your needs.
