Meet Kendra, Verde's September Featured Stylist!

September is the perfect time to spotlight our fabulous stylist, Kendra, because it is our one year anniversary together! How time flies!! Although, Kendra is such a perfect addition to the team its hard to imagine the salon with out her.

Kendra has been a stylist for over 8 years, but has been passionate about hair as long as she can remember. Her first clients being Barbies and childhood friends, nothing was going to hold her back from her true love, making everyone beautiful! Kendra is a real master and excels in every aspect of hair. From the most extreme makeover, to a precision classic bob, her work is always gorgeous. As an amazing listener with an honest heart, Kendra will always create a look perfect for each unique guest. 

Kendra's Products Picks for September!

Why Kendra Loves it: "I love that Killer Curly provides serious moisture and hydration to my curly hair clients. It enhances their curls, while still keeping a natural texture. Its perfect for curly girlies who want to wash and go!"

Glo Minerals LIP GLOSS 20% OFF
Why Kendra Loves it: "Glo Lip Gloss is one of my favorites because it feels great and lasts long. My lips always feel nourished and not too sticky. There are so many beautiful colors to chose, I especially love  Poppy & Peony !"

One thing we absolutely love about Kendra is her passion to learn and educate. Every time she learns something new, she shares it with the staff. Recently she became the salons first Kemon Master Colorist. In the year she's been with us she has dove head first in learning everything there is to know about Kevin Murphy and Kemon Color. She brings a fresh perspective and always has amazing ideas to share. 

One of Kendra's recent ideas is to sponsor an 'Animal of the Month' at the A.P.C.S.M. We will be raising money by stylists donating some of their tips, and posting about this particular animal to spread the word. This month we are sponsoring Cinder, a beautiful grey cat.

In Kendra's own words:
Q. If you could style any celebrity, who would it be and why?
A. "I would love to do Lena Dunham's hair because she would be down for whatever hairstyle and we could chat. I think she is hilarious and intelligent."

Q. What would your 'spirit animal' be and why?
A. My spirit animal is obviously a cat because they are always in charge, and always do what they want. But can also be great listeners and great snugglers. And they have great hair!

Since Kendra had made the move to Verde she has been having an incredible year! Aside from being an amazing, super-start stylist, she had married the man of her dreams, and is expecting baby-girl Kinsley in October! We are so excited for this upcoming bundle of joy, and know Kendra is the perfect role model to raise a kind, genuine,  and empowered little girl.

Meaghan, Verde's August Stylist of the Month!

Meaghan Morrissey!

August is the perfect time to feature Meaghan, Verdes newest team member, because it's warm and sunny just like her! 

Here are Meg's products favs for the month of August!

KEVIN.MURPHY Plumping Wash and Rinse 20% OFF
I choose the Plumping Wash and Rinse because this is the only hair product that actually does what it promises ! There are olceanioc acids that are a derivative from Biotin scientifically proven to work! After about a month you will start to see and feel a difference in your hair.  Don't even get me started about the scent, this scent is everything... I wish it was made in a perfume! Plumping was the first product I tried from Kevin Murphy. I've been using it since December of last year and continue to every time I wash my hair. This is my one product that I would bring to a desert island with me, it's my tried-and-true! 
Glo Minerals Sheer Lipstick 20% OFF
I chose the Sheer Lipsticks because they are beautiful and there's a ton of vitamins in them- A, C, & E! Vitamin A: fills in fine lines. Vitamin C: helps protect against environmental elements such as sun damage and aging. Vitamin E: is a vitamin that will lourish your lips with a ton of moisture, chapped lips are not cute in the summer!They also will last a lot longer than the standard lipstick which is awesome! The sheer lipsticks will add a pop of color without the feeling of a matte lip. I also love the names of 

Meaghan graduated this year from Toni and Guy, where she excelled in blowouts, styling, and undos.  Since her start at Verde Meaghan has been a perfect fit. She is a huge animal lover (and is now the resident dog-sitter) , she love everything eco, and is obsessed with fashion! If it's glitzy or glam- it's for Meg! 
In the salon you'll find Meg helping with appointments, giving the worlds best head massage, and helping the with basically everything while she completes Verdes training program. But Meaghans talents don't stop there! She is now a member of our wedding team. She is a fast master of beautiful & romantic formal looks. Meaghan is also working wonders with our Glo Minerals makeup line! 

In her own words!
Q. What is your favorite hair trend right now?
A. I love hair accessaries! Headbands, bows, flower crowns... they add more interest to your look. They are also more fun and noticeable than everyday jewelry wear.
Q. What would your dream vacation be?
A. Bora Bora! They have these cool bungalow hotels that I am dying to stay in. I would definitely bring my Glo minerals sheer lipstick in color Bora Bora with me :).
Q. Who is your celebrity hair and makeup inspiration?
A. I love Ellie Goulding! Her makeup is soft and simple keeping the focus on one feature of her face at a time. It is usually her eyes, and the look is beautiful!

Although she is a natural at everything in the beauty field, that's not our favorite thing about her. Meaghan has this genuine kindness that is absolutely infections. She is so sweet and bubbly that she literally lights up a room. The whole Verde community is in love with Meaghan and we are so glad she's ours!
