If you’ve looked at a favorite celebrity’s natural curly hair with envy, there’s now a hair salon just for you. Celebrity hairstylist Tippi Shorter is bringing her passion for natural hair care to her new salon Hair Love KC in downtown Kansas City.
Shorter has more than 25 years of experience in the hair industry, and is a go-to hairstylist for celebrities. Shorter has worked with a constellation of stars including Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Jennifer Hudson. Her work has been featured on the covers of Italian Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Essence.
“Hair Love KC is a product of my love and admiration for hair and a way to continue to inspire everyone to love and celebrate their hair in a warm and inclusive environment, no matter your hair type, texture, or wherever you are on your hair journey,” says Shorter.
Shorter has lived in Kansas City for the past 12 years, and saw a need for a salon specializing in natural hair. It inspired her to open a new salon in downtown Kansas City, specializing in personalized hair care solutions for those with waves, coils, and curls.
“After receiving an overwhelming number of calls, texts, and emails from women in Kansas City asking about curly hair care, I saw a gap I could fill to truly serve the community I love,” says Shorter.
The Hair Love KC Salon will provide a range of services including custom curly haircuts, transformational haircuts, styling, coloring, extensions, and makeup services, all tailored to meet the needs and preferences of each client. The salon will also feature a custom-made liquid lipstick service.
“I am thrilled to begin this journey with the amazing team at Hair Love KC and in our vibrant and growing downtown Kansas City.”
