At the age of 20 she decided the typical college route was not for her. However, being a smart girl she knew she could not succeed in life without a college degree, so she went for the next best (the best!) thing--a trade. Enter cosmetology school. Leah Leeds quickly learned that having a trade makes you indispensable in the American economy. Not only does Leah have the ultimate job security but she gets to enjoy her days talking with and making men and women feel like a million bucks.

In 2007, three years into her beauty career, Leah decided to attend and finish traditional college. In December 2012 she graduated from University Missouri Kansas City (UMKC) with a Business Management emphasis in Entrepreneurship. The last two years of her business degree were spent starting businesses from scratch and writing extensive businesses plans. She learned the art of brainstorming ideas, positive pivoting, and working in teams. Truly invaluable.

In retrospect, she says the experience of attending college at the same time as owning her small business has opened her eyes to the vast possibilities the billion dollars beauty business has to offer. Ultimately... the universe has worked well in her favor.

"Cheers to you, Cheers to the next stages"-Leah Leeds

An Ode to High-Lift Beige

High-lift Beige how do I love thee? ::

You soften and blend the out the edges of my blonde babes. You are a balanced sun-kissed blonde. And you are never too light/bright and never too dull/drab. You are…

6NG and 100% Sparkle Don't Mix

As I think about it, other than a medical doctor, a hair stylist is the only other professional who gets to visibly see our clients go through multiple life stages. A career hair stylist can see a small child grow up into a teenager, a college kid into a bride, a 20 something into a mother, a mother into a grandmother.

::Do you get a kick out of seeing these life stages in your clients? It…

*** BROOKE!!! We just cannot with this! Happy Thanksgiving dollie! We LOVE YOU! - #btcFAM Forever @marybehindthechair @kevin.givens & the entire #behindthechair team! *** 🦃🍁WHAT I AM THANKFUL FOR... This entire year. This has has been one of the hardest years for me personally and in my career. But it has also been the most successful and blessed years I’ve ever had. I don’t think it’s possible to get ahead in life without struggling hard. I am grateful for every hardship I’ve ever have to go through to get where I am today. I have the most wonderful friends, family, and clients that I could ask for. My business has skyrocketed this year because I decided to focus more on being in the salon and on personal relationships with my clients. I am grateful for the all of the relationships that I’ve built with other stylists in our industry, you have all helped me grow and learn to be the best that I can be. I am grateful for @behindthechair_com @marybehindthechair @kevin.givens for helping change my life and my business for the better this year winning the Metallics category at the BTC Awards in Austin. I keep that award on my station in front of my mirror where I can see it all day everyday to remind myself that I can do anything I put my mind to. I’m grateful for @brazilianbondbuilder for not only supporting me as an artist but also as a person… If it wasn’t for B3 and the close relationships that I have with everyone I wouldn’t have been able to have as much creative freedom as I do. I will never take this journey for granted. I will never take my friends for granted who have supported me through my entire career, even when I haven’t been able to go out with them because I’ve been so tired lol… They have been my true friends for so many years. I’m grateful for the family members that has been there to support me, lift me up, and show me nothing but unconditional love. I am so thankful for you all. I wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. ✨🍂🍁 xo Brooke Benton
