Stylist of the Month {March}

Bobbi Russell

Tell us about yourself.

My name is Bobbi Russell, and I am a Certified Master Hair Additions Specialist, a Clinical Trichologist and have been a licensed cosmetologist since 1985.

I am the owner of Hair Therapy for Women in Tampa FL, and I have been doing hair extension services since 1988. I started teaching and platforming hair extensions in 1991.  I have helped many companies in the research and development of their hair and attachment. Now, I have developed a hair extension for the top of the head called Revive that gives length and top volume for women with fine hair.


What has been your biggest challenge as a stylist?

My biggest challenge as a stylist has been the desire to find the perfect solution for everyone. I am a problem solver by nature.

What was the biggest turning point in your career?

The biggest turning point in my career was definitely when I focused on the hair addition services as a specialty. The demand got greater, and my income grew greatly.

How have your clients benefited from hair extensions?

The impact that hair extensions have had on my guests’ lives is that they change not just the way other people see them, but more importantly, the way they see themselves.  Having longer, fuller hair makes them feel more beautiful and confident. It empowers them.

How have hair extensions impacted your life?

Hair extensions have changed my life by truly making me feel like I have more value. By being a specialist, I can create and inspire.


What is your favorite brand of hair extensions and why?

Although I feel not just one method works for everyone, my favorite brand of hair extensions is easilengths by easihairpro  The hair and colors are of beautiful quality. They also offer exceptional education (which I feel is the key to being successful).
