10 Questions with Kayla VanderZiel

1. Introduction: What's your story?

Hello, I'm Kayla! I am the Founder and owner of Ziel Bridal. I have been in the beauty industry since 2009 and in just four years became the Director of Education in a salon. I am constantly seeking opportunities to grow and improve my craft, and have taken advanced technical classes in New York, Texas, California, and Florida from national and global hairstylists. My educators include world-class leaders in the beauty industry, including Aveda, Bumble and Bumble, L’Oreal Professional, and Davines. I graduated from Face Etc. of Minnesota Makeup School in 2020 and received her multi-media makeup certification for bridal, HD, production, and film. I believe that EVERY woman deserves to be lifted up by other women. What drew me to launch my business and focus on brides was and continues to be the belief that brides deserve to have a wedding day where they feel invincible. We look forward to meeting you!
