Hello! My name is Vonnee Kissinger, and I’ve been a stylist for 25 years. In that time, I have been licensed and working in Las Vegas, NV, where I was born, and since 1998 I’ve had the pleasure of living and working here in the Grand Rapids area. Being a stylist is as easy as breathing to me.
I naturally love to emphasize a person’s beauty and bring out the best in others, both physically and emotionally. I thoroughly enjoy taking an average head of hair, adding some dimension with color, or changing up the length to accentuate a person’s facial shape. The result is so satisfying when a person looks and feels their absolute best!
Over the years, I’ve helped hundreds of people grow their hair out with “micro-trims,” as well as exciting hair reveals with totally new haircuts or fresh color and achieving a major change. I love both sides of the spectrum depending on where the client is at with their personal hairstyling goals. My sweet spot that I really thrive in is working with people who have that in between curly and straight hair. I can make hair that wimps out bounce up like no one else. Also, I can take annoying wavy hair and smooth it out to shine and swing.
If you are looking for a new stylist that has a lot of experience, enjoys chatting during your appointment time, loves people, maintains her enthusiasm for her profession, stays current with trends, truly appreciates beautiful hair and understands how to achieve it, I might be your gal.
