Meet your stylist!
Hi! My name is Kelly and I am a hair and bridal stylist in Vernal, Utah.
I am a sports-loving, business-minded, family-focused, rock music lover! Doing hair has been my long term goal since I was a tom-boy teenager and when I moved to Vernal I turned that dream into reality!
My passion for hair began as a young girl styling and cutting barbies and grew into a career in my early twenties. I love to create the perfect style that fits your lifestyle and effortlessly exemplifies your beautiful personality!
My love for bridal hair has blossomed over the last few years and has become a major part of my career. I specialize in creating perfectly undone styles that you see on Pinterest. I have all the tools and accessories you need to bring your perfect look to life!
My love for the business side of this industry is a driving factor in my life and urges me to do better every day at providing you with the best experience imaginable.
I am so excited to get to know you!
All the best wishes and good feels, Kelly
Want to know what to expect during your visits with me?? Read on!
I am all about a good consultation! Whether you are wanting a cut, color, updo or a full bridal service, it starts with an in-depth consultation. If you are not sure what you are wanting, go to my services page to read descriptions of the services I offer!
Once you are scheduled, either for a consultation or a service, you will get a text from our system with a client intake form to fill out. Currently, I also have all my clients fill out a Covid-19 waiver before each appointment to help prevent the spread of disease.
When you come for your appointment I will ask you lots of questions about your hair history, what you are wanting and we will talk about your hopes and dreams for your hair! Pictures are always welcome to help me to know exactly what your goals are and we can scroll through and talk about what you like about each style.
You will be offered drinks and snacks while you wait for me to formulate the perfect color or prep your perfect style! While you wait or process, we have a comfy couch with Netflix to make you feel right at home.
And the rest...??
Well you are just going to have to come see for yourself!!
My education in the hair industry began at a very young age. I always loved to watch my mom cut my hair and see how she did layering and blending.
I attended college at BYU-Idaho in Rexburg, Idaho and studied auto mechanics and fashion design (crazy combination, I know!) For each fashion show I presented a line at, the hair school would come and style the hair of all my models. To be honest, that was more exciting than presenting a fashion show! Thats when I knew I would do hair but my plan at the time was to do it later in life.
When I moved to Vernal, I knew I had the option to either work or go to hair school and I chose Prime Cut Academy! I finished my schooling and licensing in 10 months as well as multiple brand education courses. Within the last few months of my schooling, I had the opportunity to do an assisting internship with Sharon Warick, an experienced stylist in Tooele, UT. This was a turning point in my education because I was able to learn advanced techniques and see how they applied to each client. I latched on to her foiling and razor cutting techniques and use them every day. I observed how she interacted with her valued guests and what went into an amazing client experience.
Since then, I have continued my hair education as well as my knowledge of the business side of this industry. I have completed many different courses and am a current member of a business marketing society especially for hair stylists. I have become familiar with my love for website design, social media marketing and creating the perfect experience for every guest!
I have also taken multiple classes and am a member of special forums for bridal stylists where I learn new techniques daily!
I look forward to years of gaining more experience and knowledge!
Products I use...
I believe in using the best products for every single one of my clients!
My preferred products for chemical services are by Redken. When I lighten hair, I use a lightener that has a bond builder built into it as well as another additive by Scruples that keeps your hair feeling smooth and healthy. The health of your hair is my number one concern no matter what service we are performing.
For hair styling, I have a few brands that I like to use. I don't believe in styling hair without a protectant in it. My favorite leave in is Mizani miracle milk with 25 benefits for your hair! I also love Redken frizz dismiss leave in cream to smooth textured hair. To style I use a variety of Redken products including Quick Tease, Wax Blast, Triple Take and more!
For a recommendation specific to your hair, come in for a consultation! With every service, I make sure to let you know what I am using on your hair so that you know exactly what is needed to get your hair feeling exactly how it does when you leave.
I always hear clients say "I can never get my hair the same as you can!" My goal is to make it easy for you to achieve the same result at home every day!
