Kiersten was 19 years old and she opened her own salon in San Jose. Yep, I was one of her first clients... and was with her until she closed her salon in Gilroy in 2018. I followed her over the ‘countryside’...to the gym in San Jose, to a salon in Morgan Hill, to her home in San Jose, back to Gilroy. In 2016 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Yes, Kiersten shaved off my hair while we both laughed and cried. After six months, I was back into Kiersten’s plans how to bring my hair back. Over the years, we have melted into a wonderful friendship.
