about us

While most children spent their allowance on candy and toys, we were buying lipstick and hair color. We are two sisters with a passion for everything beauty! That passion has lead to successful cosmetology careers behind the chair, in advanced education and freelance specialties.

Jacey and Cricket Miner have been licensed in Kansas since 2001 and have worked in salons throughout the state. Together, we have traveled extensively across the country to train with many of the beauty industry’s top artists in hair and cosmetics. This education includes editorial, photography and film techniques from many celebrity stylists and makeup artists.

Beginning in 2003, we began training nationally for many top brands and salon chains, including Sebastian International, Procter & Gamble Professional Beauty, and many others. Our specialties include advanced hair design and color, special occasion styling and cosmetic application.

In 2011, we decided to try to fulfill the high demand for freelance artists in the Kansas City area and created UPPITY BY THE MINER SISTERS. Our focus has been to bring our expertise to local weddings, photography sessions, and film sets. We have helped many men and women achieve the perfect look and now we’d like to help you! You can see some examples of our work within one of our portfolios.

And now, we liked to invite you to visit our boutique salon, UPPITY SISTERS @ SOLERA SALON! Within its walls, we provide our advanced hair services in a calm, private setting. Using only the best color and styling products available, we’ll share our experience and knowledge with you to help you look your best everyday.

Whether it’s a simple color touch up or complete makeover you require, we are ready and able to help you! Contact us today to reserve your spot!
