BradieforWebsiteBradie Trippi was born to do hair and makeup. From the time she could hold a permanent marker and create her own eye shadow to learning how to use scissors on her dolls (and herself), she has been a creative force to be reckoned with.

Growing up in the industry with a mom who worked in a salon and was also an Advanced Hair Color Educator for Aveda, Bradie would tag along in the shops and to classes, sweeping hair and cleaning color bowls. At the early age of 3 she became a mini “kitchen beautician” and would experiment her new makeup and hair ideas on anyone who would let her…usually it was her toddler cousin Zachary…until he became old enough to know better.

Figuring out what her goals were and where she wanted to be at an early age, Bradie graduated from high school within a few months of turning 17 and began her training in Cosmetology. With well over 1,000 hours under her belt in a small town school, she decided that she needed more of a creative educational atmosphere and a larger city with culture. It was then that she transferred to the San Francisco Institute of Esthetics and Cosmetology (SFIEC). It was at SFIEC where she blossomed and became involved in many activities such as the Student Council, photo shoots, stage makeup and hair and much more.

Bradie spent her student career traveling to London to study at Toni and Guy, attended the Salon International Hair Show, was chosen as a student stylist for the San Francisco Fashion Symposium, has led makeup applications for various photo shoots including SFIEC’s Cutting Crew, SFIEC’s Debut Hair Show, styled hair, applied makeup and modeled for Renown Extensions.

Bradie’s creativity is not her only talent. As a student, she averaged an impressive 110% sales to service ratio, a 70% repeat clientele rate on the student floor, is certified in MUD and Muse makeup lines, has experience in braiding and extension work and more.
