While majoring in psychology and elementary education at IU Kokomo, Tiffany Glassburn made a decision that would change her career path forever. She decided to follow her passion for the beauty industry and making women feel their best and enrolled at The Salon Professional Academy.
As someone who has worn hair extensions since high school, Tiffany knew that she would eventually love to specialize in that area, and she is now certified in seven methods. Together with her best friend and business partner, Gabrielle McDougle, she took a leap from working as a traditional stylist and progressed to business ownership.
Redefined Extension and Color Studio was born, focusing on natural beaded rows and invisible bead extensions. Its location on Adams Street is experiencing great success, and the two women plan on expanding within the next year. Tiffany is also a trained ballerina and loves many different forms of art, including tattoos.
