Millennium software announces Brig Van Osten as their newest Be-Cause honoree. “We are extremely excited to have Brig support the Be-Cause. Her presence along with the other Millennium honorees will create great awareness for the cause. Her passion and love for cutting hair is what drives the beauty industry so we know her story will inspire many,” says Millennium Founder, John Harms.

Cutting and coloring hair for 15 years, Brig is known for outrageous hair creations and the contrary, hair for the everyday woman. After working at numerous salons and growing frustrated with the traditional salon model, Brig decided a change was in order. She opened p!ay hair lounge four years ago.

"I named it p!ay, because I don't consider this work." Brig provides honest opinions to clients and peers, thriving on encouraging others around her to succeed. She has presented on hair show stages around the country and on television including TLC's What Not to Wear, Today in LA and Bravo's Shear Genius 3. Brig is the winner of Shear Genius, Season 3.
