The Stylists of Our Salon
Owner & Master Colorist
Kelly is a Certified Master Colorist. “As a little girl, I would pack my overnight bag and go door-to-door in the neighborhood looking for anyone that would let me work on them; and if you ever came to visit, you were fair game!” Kelly has had the stylist gene since she was a small child. That interest grew into a career that has lasted over four decades. Kelly has spent her career training and mentoring many stylists, all the while building a great life for herself and many others.

“The pleasure of my career choice is the benefit of helping people feel better about themselves. Doesn’t everyone want to feel good when they look in the mirror?!”

"I have always known what I was going to do in life as a career choice from the time I was a little girl. Something about getting all 'done up' has made me happy, and the ability I have to make others happy and beautiful, is one of the best feelings. Opposite Genders was a unexpected opportunity but it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. We give our clients the attention they need and always give our best. I can’t wait to see what things are in store for me."
