The Hair Badassery was created in 2017 by hair and makeup artist, Kelsey Schwartz. Kelsey wanted to create a soft, luxurious, androgynous, safe space for her clients to relax, have a cold beverage and get the hair of their dreams. The Hair Badassery is an official “Strands for Trans” salon, sporting a light pink and blue striped barber pole to signify a safe space for all people to feel comfortable while getting their hair done. Badassery is defined as behavior, characteristics or actions regarded as formidably impressive. The word “badass” can be misleading- to us, badass doesn’t always mean mohawks, punk rock and bright purple hair. It means being your best self, working hard, beating the odds, and excelling in what brings you joy. The badass team is being represented by owner Kelsey Schwartz!
