Kursten Skelley styled her first coiffure at four years old when she taught herself to braid her Barbie's hair. Her penchant for artistic expression overflowed into painting and writing and was likely inspired by her mom, who was a hairstylist. Even so, pursuing a career in beauty wasn't really on her radar at first, so she entered the adult world by opening a coffee shop. This would have been the end of her story if Kursten hadn't decided to go to cosmetology school. After returning to her first love, she went on to found K. Styles and hone her skills on fashion shows and photo shoots. No matter what style she concocts, she sees beauty in everything from vintage and hip-hop fashion to avant-garde looks, such as creating a beehive hairdo with an actual beehive.
A sleek asymmetrical bob; loose flowing curls; long, straight locks—the stylists at Hair Studio 18 can create virtually any look, according to their lookbook. And these are just a few of the coifs for which they can take credit—the service menu showcases the extent of their skills, which go beyond cutting, styling, and coloring hair. They can also smooth tresses with Keratin or mold them into loose waves. Plus, the stylists can wax away unwanted hair on the face and body, a much easier alternative to adopting secret identities.
