Hello Everyone! My name is Makenna Baird. I am a stylist at the new Kearney, Hello Lovely Salon location. I recently graduated from Z Hair Academy, earlier this year. With continued education after graduation in the days leading up to our grand opening September 10th.
What inspired me to be a hairstylist, is the love I have always had for hair. Being a stylist is exciting because you get to be creative everyday! Everyone has different hair goals, which makes my job delightful; having my hand in making those goals come to life!
While doing hair is what I currently feel most passionate about, I've recently discovered makeup is something I also have fun with, as it’s another creative outlet for myself.
Some of my favorite things to do outside of the salon, are hang out with my family, and friends, as well as my golden doodle, Crew! My preferred activities to do with my friends are go to concerts, go to restaurants, or go explore new places!
Some goals I have for myself are to get certified in hair extensions, and always make sure my clients leave my chair are satisfied and pleased! I look forward to meeting all of you!
Sneak Peak Into Our Design Process!
Kearney is getting a never before seen salon design! We are mixing natural elements and Luxury to give a warm and inviting look, with an edge. You will notice a different shades of pink, beige, and gold. But, we didn't stop there. We know we need an accent color to make the space pop!
Can you guess what color we picked?!...
BLUE! This color choice gives the salon a whole different vibe. It's safe to say, we are in love with our new space. Plus, a touch of gold, to tie in the luxury experience.
How's Construction Going?
We are so grateful for this rain in August!
Because of to this crazy weather, the
construction workers have been able to complete more working in our salon. Since, they were unable to continue outdoor jobs. This has made our prediction of opening to the public around the end of August, a hopeful REALITY!? 🤞🏻
A note from Ashley
This whole endeavor has been saturated with provisions from the Lord. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the outpouring of community support and love that we have already been receiving. From clients, landlords, construction crews, the chamber and just good neighbors. It has been provision after provision for making this dream a reality.
What probably only close friends and family know is that I have been searching for a location in Kearney for over a year! Last year at this time I was actually exploring the space that the boutique just renovated.
Some may think that just because we have other locations already, that this is an easy endeavor. But it has probably been more of a step in faith if I were being honest. I am so thankful for friends and family willing to help late into the night to save every penny possible to make this happen.
I hope to see so many new wonderful faces soon and can't wait to get to know the people of this community that we call our home.
