Today we’d like to introduce you to Brenda Anguiano.
Brenda, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I’m Brenda from Balance Holistic Hair Studio in sunny Scottsdale. I moved here from Southern California three years ago. ( I do still travel back home often, to spend time with family & take care of clients). I specialize in holistic hairdressing. Coming from a Mexican background. Agriculture and botany along with herbal remedies were a way of living. So naturally, I gravitated towards a cleaner color line & salon, without even knowing the amount of awareness it would bring to my lifestyle and how it’d truly be the perfect timing to convert!
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Most of my challenges came from health issues and so much change in such a short period of time I’d say. It truly did force for so much growth that I’m really proud of now.
Shortly after converting completely into organic color I was pregnant with my first daughter. I had hypermesis gravidarum through my entire pregnancy. Which basically just meant I’d have to puke 24/7 ( I’d have to excuse myself at least once during each appointment) .. this made it quite challenging to build clientele. But I was fortunate enough have met such amazing women, both as clients & co-workers. So incredibly supportive and knowledgeable. Once I changed such an important aspect in my life. It really paved way for change in other areas. I wanted to inform myself as much as possible, and the woman I surrounded myself with were also on the same journey! I was really aware of everything I put on and into my body.
Aliyah was born six weeks early at 4lbs, but strong and healthy!
It’s completely true that you do forget because four months later I would be pregnant with Amayah. I did have hypermesis gravidarum once again. But by May of 2018, I had moved to Balance and rented a chair. So being in charge of my schedule along with everything I learned the first time around really helped but it was definitely still a challenge!
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Balance Holistic Hair Studio – what should we know?

We are a clean air salon, that means no ammonia and you can rest assure we’ve done our research and all of our brands our some of the cleanest in the beauty industry worldwide.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Oh man, I think knowing what I know now. I would prioritize what I love to do a little more. For me, it helps spark creativity.
