Hi, my name is Brandi. I grew up in a place many people consider Narnia but to me it's just a beautiful small town called Brigantine. I went to school in Brigantine from pre-k up until 8th grade, and went on to high-school at Atlantic City High School. After high school I moved to Ventnor to raise my 2 year old son. Soon after I decided it was time to work on my career so I applied to attend Jolie Hair and Beauty Academy to become the cosmetologist I always aspired to be.
Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed to be a beautician and always knew this was my calling. The rewards outweigh the challenges and it's so true when you hear the saying "it's not working if it's what you love to do."
Today, I'm happy to say I am a stylist at Daja Hair Salon and a mom of two amazing little boys who make this journey all the more worthwhile!
