BrendaI was born in Arlington, living in Mansfield since 1997. I been in the cosmetology industry since 2007, with the Avante Team since 2010.  Many things drove me towards my career in cosmetology. High school theatre was the beginning of finding my talent for hair and make up. I was always finding new and creative ways to do my own hair and makeup for the shows.

Soon my peers were asking me to style their hair and makeup. I had a cool experience being in charge of care for all the wigs in the musical “Bye Bye Birdie”. I discovered I was very passionate and rather good at it all. I started coloring my own hair, coloring my mothers and friends hair. I saw a commercial for the Ogle School of Hair, Skin, and Nails and knew it was my destiny. I found that this was an awesomely fun way to work day in and day out. The buzz of the salon and the relaxing environment of the spa tell me this is where I belong. While attending Ogle, I earned many over the top awards including:

  • “Excellence in Attendance”
  • “Client Retention Award”
  • “Highest Client Count”
  • “Above the Line Award”
  • “Shining Star Award”
  • “Eager to Learn Award”
  • “Best Foils Award”
  • 1st Place in the Evening Extravaganza Style Show.

I love this career because I have the freedom to provide services in all areas of my license. To help others feel better inside and out thru providing a relaxing service or updating their personal style makes my day. I love the personal freedom I have in expressing myself thru style. I am always allowed to be as creative as my imagination can take me but with the business aspect always in perspective as well. I love customer service, and always strive to learn and grow making make my services the best the industry has to offer!
