Kelsey Knutson, Summit Salon Academy Grad

We could not be more proud of grad Kelsey Knutson if we tried! Kelsey graduated from Summit’s cosmetology program in November 2015. Since graduation she has been taking the industry by storm! Kelsey is currently working as a stylist at Annie Fisher Hair in Seattle, WA. She works hard behind the chair, doing weddings, and fashion and hair shows. She is also a certified Framesi Technician which means she travels to other salons to educate stylists how to use Framesi color and products. In her free time, Kelsey does freelance photoshoots and weddings. Earlier this year Kelsey received a nomination for  Northwest Hairstyling Awards’ Newcomer of the Year! This is an annual award, and only professionals in the industry can make nominations. Each nominee submits a photo showcasing their best work. A selection of industry professionals across the country judge the photos and chose three finalists.

Kelsey said of the nomination, “It was a great experience coming up with my own concept, team, and of course hair.”

Kelsey’s submission was an impressive feat of hairstyling! This is an actual cage made of hair that Kelsey worked on over the course of a few weeks. The day of the photoshoot, she incorporated all of the model’s natural hair, so the whole thing took a lot of time and collaboration.
