I always dreamed of doing hair and owning my own salon ever since I was a little girl. I went to Cosmetology School in Southern California and had the good fortune of being able to live in several states and gain different experiences that helped me tremendously when shaping my vision for my own salon. With the help and encouragement of my amazing husband, family, friends and clients I was able to see my dream come to reality when I opened Pure Bliss in 2011. While I am no longer behind the chair, I am happy to remain in the salon world in a different capacity. Finding a new passion in permanent jewelry gives me time with our amazing guests, and it gets me back to what I love the most about this profession.

Hey there! I’m Taylor. I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist going on ten years and have loved every second of it! I am a color specialist and have worked with alot of color lines and prefer to use Pulp Riot and Aveda, because of the natural properties that go into the hair color and styling products. My favorite part of this industry is seeing my clients light up when their color turns out amazing or when they have been trying to get that perfect cut to match their personality and style they have been trying so hard to achieve. At the end of the day we all just want to look great and feel great, so come see me for some awesome hair and great conversation!
Kimbra Wagner
Kimbra Wagner, Independent Cosmetologist
Greetings! My name is Kimbra and I have been a licensed cosmetologist for five years, although I have been coloring and styling hair since the age of 11, as my mother had a career in the industry and demanded I learn how to color and style hair so she could stop having to do it herself with a hand mirror. My life’s mission is to ensure that everyone leaves loving their beautiful mane and leaves with confidence, feeling good both inside and out. I specialize in blonding and do an array of texture services. I am confident with all cuts and styles, and that includes very long hair, very curly hair, hair that maybe needs to be color corrected or needs a lot of tender love and care to get back into shape! You can reach my by phone or text at (239).789.9721 (and for those who recognize the area code I am indeed from Florida ☺️) but please feel free to call or text any time.
