BRANDI GILSTRAP

Brandi’s love for the beauty industry started at a young age. While she embarked on the college experience and working as a 911 dispatcher, the fun memories of styling and coloring her friend’s hair in high school led her to hair school. It was that  moment that hair quickly became her greatest passion. 

13 years in, she continues growing her passion through education. Some of her favorite looks are geometric curls, short styles, bobs, and craft hair shapes such as shags and natural textured styles. She enjoys creating dimensional, lived- in modern color, and the challenge of color corrections. She also thrives on learning the “why” and the science involved in hair and loves to share relevant knowledge with her guests. When in her chair, you can expect a personalized experience tailored to you while ensuring the best recommendations for services and products that fit your lifestyle. Aftercare is one of her specialties, so you’ll never leave without knowing how to recreate your style at home. 

Being a Las Vegas native, Chattanooga is truly home. She enjoys time with her husband, pups, and church family. Her hobbies include live music, cooking, all things crafty, and is a plant lover. 

As the owner of Urban Collective Salon Company, her dream is to help pay it forward to the next generation of stylists. She is passionate about teaching and loves mentoring and coaching others to have their dream career in the hair industry.

She welcomes you like family… the magic begins here.
