By Heather Collins
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang salon stylist and Fishers resident Rebecca Zirkle, 25, knows how ro combine both fashion and fitness.
Among her accolades, Zirkle is the lead hair designer for Midwest Fashion Week. Her work has lead to a featured spread in Vogue Italia, work with the Australian hair-care line KEVIN.MURPHY and a trip to Melbourne, Australia to work during Australian Fashion Week.
“Fashion week is the fire in my soul,” Zirkle said. “The chaos, the clothes, the hair, the planning, the execution. It is the power behind my ambition.”
Zirkle started working at KKBB Salon in Fishers in 2012 and is now what is considered a Level 2 Stylist.
Zirkle said shortly after starting at KKBB Salon, she found she needed consistency in her life and discovered bodybuilding.
“Everything we do at the salon is for a reason, and the same goes for bodybuilding,” Zirkle said. “The sport taught me mental strength and gave me a fighters mentality that overflows into every aspect of my life.”
Since 2012, Zirkle has been sponsored by various supplement companies, won and defended several titles throughout the Midwest and was ranked 7th in the world through the National Physique Committee by placing at the Arnold Classic bodybuilding championships.
Zirkle is currently in a worldwide competition for Ms. Health & Fitness 2017. Online voting begins Feb. 7. The winner will be featured on the cover of Muscle and Fitness Hers with a multi-page spread and awarded $20,000.
