Wichita native Brianna has been transforming hair and hearts since she began styling in 1998. Brianna first opened ABLS Salon in 2011, and when she started exploring new locations to expand her business she knew she wanted to be in the center of events and culture. Seeing the historic Broadway Plaza in the heart of downtown, she knew she found the perfect spot.
Now settling into the space, Brianna is focused on her passion for her clients and employees, doing everything she can to help them become as beautiful on the outside and they are on the inside.
“We encourage everybody to be themselves and we try to bring that out and give them positive reinforcement that they can do it,” Brianna says.
Determined to create an inclusive atmosphere where everyone is welcome and thriving, Brianna has created a culture of encouragement. ABLS Salon is a place where coworkers are more like family and clients more than just customers, but close friends.
“We’re all friends,” said Brianna, “it’s their appointment, but at the same time it’s their chance to spend time with us. We love hearing about their lives. I think we invest a lot of emotions – it’s very fun and upbeat here.”
