So, we meet again! We only have a couple of artists left in our CT wedding hair and makeup artist introduction series. Wedding season has officially begun and we have been very busy with our brides! On our last Wedding Wednesday before the official summer season starts, I am pleased to introduce Kellie!
There wasn’t any particular moment or event that convinced Kellie that hair was going to be her end game, she just knew all along that it is what she was meant to do. As her mother will tell you, Kellie was born with a hairbrush in her hand. Growing up, she always did her own hair and eventually started styling her friends too. After high school, her mother convinced her styling could be her career so she enrolled at the International Institute of Cosmetology and the rest is history!
Kellie didn’t stop learning after she obtained her license. She continued to attend seminars and classes to keep her skills up to date and learn the latest trends and techniques. She has been doing hair for 7 years now and is a true artist behind the chair. She can cut and color your hair into just about any style and color you could dream of. She is even certified in Keratin Complex, Brazilian Blowout, Hair Dreams Extensions, and Dream Catchers Extensions! Similar to Kelly (with a ‘Y’) you met previously, Kellie just recently opened a Salon with another KiSSandMaKeUp artist you’ll meet next week. She is a go-getter and a perfect fit for the KiSSandMaKeUp team.
Even though she works wonders behind the chair, her true passion is in bridal styling. She says she has always felt inspired by the beauty industry and really enjoys creating styles that make people feel more confident than ever. There is just something about being an important a part of a brides special day!
While Kellie is busy with her own salon and wedding season, she makes sure to find time for the things she loves. When she isn’t working in the salon or giving brides perfect braids (see below), she is often found spending time with her family and friends. When life gets hectic, spending time catching up with the people she loves recharges her. Kellie is also very adventurous. Being a huge music fan, she makes it a point to attend as many music festivals as she can (and often has the best outfits and hair there)! If she isn’t hanging with family and friends, vibing-out at festivals or creating a masterpiece with strands of hair, Kellie can be found watching her favorite show, Grey’s Anatomy.
Kellie recently joined the KiSSandMaKeUp team this year and we’ve kept her busy so far! As you can see, she fits the KiSSandMaKeUp artist mold and is an ambitious, determined lady-boss with incredible talent. If you are a bride looking for an up-do, down style, extensions, braids or anything in between, Kellie’s got you covered.
