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. I love writing and sharing what I learn with 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!

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!
My name is Vanessa and I was born in Maine, but quickly became a Floridian at 10 years old.
A little bit about me; I have been doing hair for about 9 years. I started working at an Aveda salon shortly after graduating the Aveda Institute in 2014. After about 2 years of working there, I decided to branch out into a privately owned salon where I stayed for 7 years.
Taking that leap allowed me to diversify my knowledge on color brands, formulations, and integrate new cutting techniques.
During those 7 years, I decided to go back to school where I completed my bachelors at USF. I started my first corporate job in IT Staffing in 2018. Although I work full time in Corporate America, every part of me still loves being a hairdresser, making people look and feel their best!
January 2023 I started at Fringe Hair Studio. I was looking for growth and a new change to bring in this new year and I couldn’t be more excited to be here.
Can’t wait to meet you!
Hi, I'm Ashley!
I am native to the Sunshine State, living in the Tampa Bay Area my entire life.
Early on I dreamt of moving to a big city, but as I grew older (and wiser) I came to recognize that I already live in paradise. Here I have built an amazing support system, my tribe, and I can't imagine being too far from them! When I'm not working I am spending time with my family and my adorable pups (ask me all about them, I'll tell you how cute they are). I enjoy exploring local beaches, finding new sushi spots, and just enjoying everything this area has to offer. I also love to travel, my favorite place so far is Mykonos and I can't wait to go back!
In 2012 I started working as a middle school counselor. For 10 years I took care of my students, going as far as completing coursework in a Doctoral program to become a School Leader. But the voice in my heart always whispered (and sometimes screamed) to pursue my other passion and go to cosmetology school. The timing was right in 2021 to listen to that voice, and I was ecstatic to finally dive deep towards my dream of becoming a stylist.
I am so thankful to work beside the talented ladies at Fringe, learning all the things from the absolute best!
Amanda always said she would have a chair for me when I finally took that leap, so here I am! I'm ready to transition my counseling skills to building relationships behind the chair.
I can't wait to meet you all, see you soon!
Hey there, I’m Jamie!
I’m not originally from Florida, I was born and raised in a small town in Connecticut. My boyfriend, 3 fur babies & I decided to make the move to sunny Florida beginning of May 2023 and we absolutely love it! Such a different lifestyle for us, but for the better!
I never knew I wanted to do hair as a career but I always knew I wanted something to do with helping people. School was never my thing so when I learned about cosmetology school I thought, “Why not give it a try and see what happens?” That’s when I knew it was more than just giving someone the perfect color or cut. It was about building connections and relationships with people from all stages of life and helping them gain confidence in themselves. I specialize in all hair types but my favorite services to do is natural, everyday, lived in looks.
When I’m not in the salon, I’m spending time with my fur babies or cooking a yummy meal!
Furthering my education is so important to me as I want to make sure I am giving my guests the best experience possible. I am so excited to be apart of this amazing and talented team! I cannot wait to meet you and have you in my chair. Now let’s get you the hair you’ve always dreamed of!

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!
Hello and thanks for looking! My name is Nicole and I’ve been behind the chair for over twelve years now! Originally from the Midwest, I completed my training and first seven years behind the chair with Aveda. Since then I’ve grown and evolved into a well rounded stylist with knowledge of several brands.
I pride myself in being a good listener and creating colors and customizing cuts for each guest. I love getting creative with short hair cutting and even fun funky colors. But I guess I’d better add that there’s no better satisfaction than shaping and blowing out beautiful long layers - there is beauty in all hair types and textures!
Outside of the beautiful salon I now call my second home - I’m running around Trinity / Odessa with two active kids. I have a younger daughter & an older son - and probably too many furry babies for a single story home lol :) My husband and I have lived here for the past 10 years so I suppose we’re Floridian now, even though we will always call Des Moines home.
I’m really thrilled to be here at Fringe surrounded by so much talent & everyday fun - it feels so good to be back in a salon environment with great co-workers. I can’t wait to meet you all here in Palm Harbor
