As a child, braiding, twisting and styling hair was a way to pass the time. Keep the mind and body busy whenever boredom struck. It was during these idle times in Minneapolis, MN that Brielle discovered her passion and talent for hair.
After graduating from Clemson University with a D1 Track & Field scholarship and a Communication degree under her belt, Brielle decided to pursue cosmetology as a career.
And it has been a journey so far. She has worked on 4 consecutive seasons of NYC spring/fall fashion week. She has worked on editorial shoots for Axe Men, Target, Alex and Olivia, The Today Show, Ruth B, Jill Scott, Zara Larsson, Armani exchange, Greg Lauren and more.
She eventually made her way out to Oakland ,CA and studied under Vidal Sassoon training. In 2015 she moved back to New York City and worked at Hair Rules which specializes in curly to kinky textured hair.
She is now at Cutler Salon in Soho, NYC as a full time stylist.
J Nycole Ralph was co-founder of a theater company called Laugh With You in 2013 that was one of the few theater companies that was not only paying their actors and playwrights within the first year, but also profited within the first year! She has now ventured off on her own and founded Live Yo Life Productions. J Nycole is also a critically acclaimed actress best known for her roles as Consuela and Anita in the Broadway tour of West Side Story. Other appearances include Chris Rock's film, Top Five, and award-winning film, Homework. J Nycole has also performed in award shows televised on ABC, NBC, and BET.
The cast and Team of Working Out the Kinks is excited to show you the amazing things they have created. You won't want to miss it!
