“Brent Hardgrave has the
sensitivity & compassion
that it takes to lead
our profession in a
new and inspired
– Ashlee Barazzone
An expert stylist and gifted colorist since 1994, and a true visionary, Brent graduated with honors from Capelli, an intercoiffure school. After serving as director of hair color for the Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta in 1996, Brent opened his own salon in Roswell, Georgia and became an Educator for Redken. In the fall of 2009, Brent accepted a position with Keune Haircosmetics as a National Artisan traveling throughout the US sharing his knowledge with stylists and distributors both on stage and in classrooms.
Just a short month later, Brent was honored to be the first US National Artisan to be promoted to International Artisan expanding his venue from the US. Known for his innovative dry-cutting technique, Brent is also an expert colorist and extensionist.
His work has been seen in music videos, movies, and magazines and on television and high fashion runways. Brent’s talent was recently featured in Modern Salon magazine, Salon Sophisticate magazine and Sophisticates HairStyle Guide.
Brent is always learning and adding to his skills. Several years ago he began incorporating hair extensions to his already impressive list of professional services. It was this work that led Brent to develop The Brent Brush, to help preserve and protect his client’s hair extensions. The Brent Brush has become so much more. This brush has helped men, women and children beyond what Brent could have ever envisioned, including: children with sensory processing issues, to those affected with under-active thyroid (hypothyroidism), as well as women in perimenopause and menopause to anyone with scalp sensitivity issues.
Brent has also expanded his focus to help women with hair loss and "hormone hair" to look great, with cutting and styling techniques to maximize hair volume, products to help with volume and hair regrowth, and extensions and other hair aids to help enhance thinning hair or hair loss.
