Kenzie's Kuts is an inviting environment that will make you look and feel beautiful! Now a little about me. Ever since Ive been a little girl I always knew I wanted to be an artist. I started my career by attending the Aveda Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota and became a licensed Esthetician. My desire to further explore my creativity led me to pursue a career in cosmetology. After being dual licensed I felt it was only nesscary get back to the basics as to why I feel in love in the industry in the first place, makeup. As my passion for makeup grew deeper so did the love for educating others on how to use color as an art form therefore, I became an Aveda makeup coach. After much experience and love for makeup I took my skills and need for growth and pursued freelancing. Although, I knew Id never leave the industry I always knew I wanted to own my own salon someday so it was important to me to have a degree in business. I graduated from Cardinal Stritch University with a degree in Business Management. Taking my love for color and design has led me to express myself as a freelancer and work on camera for Shopbop.com and travel for special events with Aveda corporate. Including my biggest accomplishment thus far working on set as a makeup artist at New Yorks Fashion Week, 2013. I look forward to continuing working with and building a special bond with my already existing clients and new clients I service. Im so lucky to be able to wake up and love what I do. Its a true blessing have a career and not a job!
McKenzie did my hair and makeup for my wedding this summer, as well as my bridesmaids and my mom. McKenzie was wonderful to work with; I was planning my wedding from out of state and she was so easy to communicate with. She was super extremely easy going and flexible, which I greatly appreciated as a stressed out bride! She is incredibly talented and professional. I felt so gorgeous and I highly recommend her!
McKenzie has been doing my hair for the last couple years and I have never felt better leaving her salon! I receive so many compliments on my hair and have been stopped multiple times in public asking where I get my hair done! She is the best and is always willing to work with whatever style you bring to her! She is a beautiful person inside and out and I look forward to getting my hair done each and every time!
McKenzie and her assistant did the hair and makeup for my entire bridal party and the moms. She came to our venue bright and early and had everything set up and ready to go before the first appointment. She was very professional and did a wonderful job with everyone. As the bride, she was able to capture my vision and make it come to life. She was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her to any bride and/or bridal party!
McKenzie is amazing! She takes time to consult with you and give recommendations. She is easy to talk with (no awkward silences) and does an amazing job. My daughter and I don't trust our hair to anyone but McKenzie
