Salut! I am Kendra Schmidt, the owner of Le Rêve Hair Studio. My story begins with a dream as a little girl to one day follow in my grandmother’s footsteps and become a hairstylist, but my journey took me on a scenic route before reaching my destination. After I graduated from Carroll College (now Carroll University), I worked as a social worker in Milwaukee, Oshkosh and Neenah as a Juvenile Probation Officer. Although I loved my job, 8 years was plenty for me and I took on the role of stay-at-home mom. In 2007, I decided to go after my dream of becoming a stylist and in 2008 graduated from Martin’s School of Cosmetology. Since then, I have worked in a corporate salon as well as two small salons and have continued educating myself by attending and participating in programs such as Global Academy, Training for Tomorrow and Self Tour of Color. These programs have enabled me to assist my clients in finding the right cut, color and style for their face shape and skin tone as well as recommend the best product for their hair type and needs to get the best out of their new cut, color or texture service. As a wife, mother of two boys, and having a rather strong male following, I have experience with male cuts as well, so don’t let the name fool you! I look forward to working with you and building a lasting partnership so give me a call or stop by to see it for yourself!
