Kelli Brown

Founder & Stylist

Hi, My name is Kelli Brown and I am excited to share with you a little bit about myself. Being a hairstylist is something I have always had in me, I was always that girl who had the fun awesome hair and I loved trying new things and helping a friend or two with their hair. Its always been a passion and I then decided why ever work a day in my life and just do this forever. So here I am years later still pursuing my dream in the hair styling world. I’m extremely excited to be a part of The Mixx Hair Salon and its been one crazy roller coaster. Being Part owner was one of the many goals I had in mind. You know what they say if you don’t take risks you will never grow. Being here with the rest of the staff is a blessing and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Coloring, cutting, styling and you name it. I’m your girl. I love to let my inner creativity come out and am always ready to step out of the box whenever someone is in need for a change. Men's hair cutting and extension work is another specialty of mine. My hours of styling are Tues, Wed, Thur and Sat during salon hours.

Nathaly Acuna


Hi! I'm Nathaly; a fun, outgoing, dog mom and Hair & Makeup fanatic! For as long as I can remember, my passion has always been strongly rooted in the beauty industry. As a kid, I was always the little girl trying to put rollers in my grandmother's hair and makeup on my mom's face. Although I graduated from college with a degree in criminology, my roots always pulled me back to what came and felt natural, and that is making people look and feel fabulous! I worked as a freelance makeup artist for a few years before deciding to go back to school for cosmetology. After graduating from Pivot Point Academy I jumped right into the beauty industry and have been growing professionally ever since! My favorite things to do are major hair transformations, hair painting & any form of colour! Besides hair, I also provide makeup services here at The Mixx! I can't wait to meet you and provide you with all your hair and makeup needs! My hours of styling are, Mon, Thurs, Fri and Sat during most salon hours. Check out my Insta! @glams_by_Nat
