The Team

Owner / lead stylist
Brandy Knowlton

Brandy is from the Mid Michigan area and pursued a career in cosmetology out of a love for people. She graduated from Douglas J Aveda Institute in 1996. Opening Nu Concept Salon in 2005 came as a natural progression to create the environment she wanted to work with her guests and alongside other amazing and talented stylists looking to take charge of their careers as well. Brandy gets much joy in spending her time behind the chair making people feel better about themselves by cutting and styling to emphasize their best traits. Wedding and formal styling have long been an area of the hair industry Brandy has enjoyed working in. Nu Concept Salon has been voted Williamston’s favorite salon for the past 15 years. This is from great teamwork, skill and passion for the industry from all of the Nu Concept Stylists.
