Hi there! Allow me to introduce myself! I’m Amanda and I opened the doors to our beautiful salon studio in August of 2013! I have been behind the chair for 15 years and I have to say, I can’t believe it! Time really does fly when you’re having fun! I am a lover of all thing’s beauty, but I am incredibly passionate about hair, it is my lifelong career. I would consider myself a well-rounded, seasoned master stylist. I have been to more classes, workshops and seminars than I can tell you but I am always on the hunt to learn something new! Education plays a huge role in my career; I will never stop growing and striving to be the best hair stylist for my guests.
Guest experience is very important to me. I love getting to know everyone who sits in my chair and working with them to make sure they have a haircolor and style that fits their lifestyle! The vibe in the salon will always be light, fun and relaxing; we love to have a great time. My experience behind the chair combined with my absolute love for connecting with people is what keeps my guests coming back.
When I’m not in the studio, you can find me with my family! Being a wife and mother is my other full time job! My two boys keep me very busy, always chasing them around the park or taking them to play dates. Once the kids are asleep my husband and I open a bottle of red and catch up on life! Or let’s be real, Netflix. I always make sure I have time for myself too, I love my morning workouts at Burn Boot Camp, a pedicure with a skinny peppermint mocha or just simply laying by the pool listening to my favorite podcast.
See you soon!

Hey y’all, Heather here!
I started my career at Fringe Hair Studio after graduating from Summit Salon Academy! Education and continuing to grow my skills
behind the chair is my top priority! I’m so thankful to work in a studio where all of the stylists are so talented and work so great together as a team. I have so much to learn from them!
I was born in Riverside, California into a military family. I have a twin brother but I’m the oldest by two minutes! We moved all over the country and settled down in Tampa, Florida after spending some time in Italy. When I’m not in the salon you can find me at the dog park with my German Shepherd Lilly or with my family, they are everything to me!
What I love most about doing hair is helping my guests feel beautiful! Getting my hair done was always a confidence boost to me and I hope I can do the same for others! I would love the opportunity to have you in my chair, hope to see you soon!

Hi everyone! My name is Andrea and I was born and raised in Palm Harbor and am total Florida girl! I started my career at Fringe Hair Studio after finishing school at Sunstate Academy. But my training didn’t end there! Education is so important to me and every class I have taken has helped me become the stylist I am today. Meeting with master stylists and educators from all around the world is what truly inspires me. Getting to learn something new in every class is what keeps me motivated to bring the newest techniques to my guests. When you love what you do it really doesn’t feel like “work.”
Having a personal connection with my guests is what I love most about this industry! We can talk about anything and everything! Getting to help women feel beautiful, their absolute best is so amazing. My favorite part is when I see their face just light up in the mirror after the perfect color and cut! Hand painting, balayage and blondes are just some of my specialties, but finding that perfect color for your lifestyle is what matters most!
When I’m not in the studio, you can find me at the beach or burning calories at burn boot camp! Working out is another passion of mine, making new goals and finding endless ways to be active! I also love relaxing with a good book or hanging with friends at our favorite restaurants. Family is very important to me and our Sunday dinners are the perfect way to end the week.
Hope to meet you soon!
Hi everyone, I'm Whitney!
I was born in a little town in Polk County Florida called Winter Haven. Some of my best friends still live there as well as my family so you may see me around every now and then if you live there. However I moved over to beautful Palm Harbor, a suburban beach town just north of Clearwater, 11 (almost 12) years ago, met my husband, adopted our frenchie, got married, and had 2 children (my boys).
I’ve been a hairstylist for 10 years. Prior to that I was in sales for nearly 7 years. I HATED sales. God bless those of you who have to meet quotas every month (UGH). Not for me, but kuddos to those who do it!
I started my hair career at Aveda (in Tampa) and worked at an Aveda salon for 6 years. Eventually I left after my first child and opened my own salon loft to become my own boss and have my own schedule. Kefi Beauty was born! After 3 years of being in my own space, my 2nd child was born, and with each new chapter in life, new doors open. I decided it was the perfect time to move closer to home and I wanted to be back in a salon environment because I missed working with other hairstylists.
I looked at salons locally and wasn’t impressed by too many. Many of the salons in our area are “beauty shops” and your girl here is NOT a fan of rolling perms if ya know what I mean. So I stumbled across Fringe Hair Studio on Instagram, reached out to Amanda the owner, met with her and we both decided we were each others perfect fit.
I honestly couldn’t be happier with the girls I work with and I know God led me down this path for a reason. When one door closes another one opens. Cheers!
