Kiri Mae Klarich


Taylor Andrews provided me with such a firm foundation and understanding of hair and of the hair industry itself. From various techniques and multiple color lines, and being provided with high end product lines, being a student a Taylor Andrews felt no different than working in an actual salon, and honestly, that’s the best way to learn.
