I originally wanted to be in this business to help others feel more beautiful and confident. I joined the Fantasia team in 2007 after graduating from Salon Professional Academy in New Hope, Minn.
My true passion is in fine and thinning hair. I have become certified in Micro Point Links (adding four hairs onto one hair to add fullness and volume to the top of the head), Micro Point Accents (adds 100 hairs to the sides and the back of the head), cold laser therapy (safe,effective way to stimulate new hair growth) and Easihair extensions (reusable, human hair extensions for volume and length to the back and sides of the head).
I also have had extensive advanced training in coloring, cutting and proper care for top of the head hair systems and wigs. I love to see the instant transformations using these solutions, but also love to educate my guests about how to maintain existing hair and hair systems with the proper products.
I keep broadening my horizons by taking continued education classes on regular basis as well as attending hair shows and advanced training. Over the past summer, I became a Redken specialist and theradome cold laser therapy certified. I also attended the National Hair Loss Council Convention in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. in 2015.
My primary specialty is fine and thinning hair, while I also focus on foils, colors, haircuts and facial waxing. With the color and cutting skills I have learned, I can create the illusion of more fullness in hair.
As a hair stylist, I go above and beyond to make sure my guests look their best. Even though my passion is in fine hair, I love the opportunity to work with all hair types. As a Redken specialist, I have had extensive training in styling and coloring techniques that give me an edge in my industry.
I am also certified to do keraspa smoothing treatments to tame coarse, unruly hair.

"I'm still coming here after 2 years! That's a record for me." — Kim D.I'm still coming here after 2 years! That's a record for me. So what that means is, I LOVE Mandi and the way she does my hair. Fantasia Salon also brings back memories of my sister who came here before she passed away from cancer. The staff here are all very friendly and the atmosphere is warm and comfortable. Thanks for all that you do.
