April Thorsten has always had a passion for hair, and after nearly a decade training in the Mid-West, brought that passion to Los Angeles. She spent three more years perfecting her skills at Serge Normant at John Frieda in West Hollywood, sharpening her eye and honing her technique to west-coast clienetele under top colorists in LA, and becoming a master of both balayage and foil highlights. From there she moved to James Kendall Salon in Beverly Hills where she worked alongside many of LA's talented hairdressers. April is not only highly attuned to her clients' needs but exceptional at listening to whay they want. The integrity of her clients' hair is a point of personal pride for her. She has an affinity for working with red-heads, and is most adept at making hair color look natural and not treated. April has colored many well-known personalities and celebrities; Kristin Davis, Andie MacDowell, James Tupper, Anne Heche, and Linda Gray among them.

After 5 years, April has decided to come back to her home town. She is currently working at Brindle and Blonde located downtown Grand Rapids, MI. She looks forward to expanding her clientele here and using her techniques to show her passion for this industry.
