HOW IT STARTED

Owner, Brook Adsit,  grew up competing in gymnastics and track which led to having her hair pulled up and back often. She began to braid her and her teammates hair and fell so in love with it, that she even ended up doing some hair for others for homecoming and prom. When she realized college wasn't the path for her, she decided to attend cosmetology school in 2015. Through her salon career thus far, she has seen many sides of the industry and has always found herself the happiest when styling hair just like in her early days. Brook was married in 2018 to the love of her life and claims her wedding day to be the happiest of her life. Brook's biggest goal with this company is to give you a safe place to elevate your natural beauty so you can feel and be your most authentic self. We welcome everyone from every walk and want you to feel loved and accepted for exactly who you are.

When Brook isn't working, you can find her frequenting local coffee shops or hiking. Other hobbies of hers include fashion, working out, driving to the mountains, and hot-tubbing. A fun fact about Brook is that she is HUGE on self growth and development so she also loves reading personal development books and listening to podcasts.

Clarissa Lawton - LICENSED HAIR SPECIALIST

Clarissa grew up in Reno, NV.  Growing up she spent a lot of time learning and perfecting new hairstyles on herself. Clarissa also spent a lot of time styling hair for friends and family. This is how she knew early on that she had a passion for hair styling. After high school, Clarissa toured Paul Mitchell in Reno, NV with high hopes to attend, but became fearful and discouraged so sought out another path instead. Clarissa has worked at beauty supply stores like Cosmo Prof and Salon Centric where she gained a lot of background knowledge about professional products and all of their benefits. Working in theses stores gave her a great understanding of styling products and how to use them for the styles she creates now. Clarissa also became a dental assistant. She followed that path for 8 years and loved how that career helped her grow as an individual, but she always knew she belonged in the beauty industry. In 2020, still discouraged maybe even more so than before because of Covid-19, Clarissa finally applied to attend Paul Mitchell in NC. Clarissa completed school and became licensed in September 2021. When Clarissa is not at a wedding you can find her enjoying time outdoors, buying plants, spending quality time with friends and family and redecorating her home

Carissa is the back bone of Brook Mae Salon as she handles a lot of the behind the scenes work that makes BMS successful.
