Apr 08, 2011 - Just got home from my first appt. at Kelly Elaine. All I can say is I'm doing the happy dance here. What a great experience at her salon! From the time I entered, Kelly and Liz made me feel so at home. It's a small, intimate salon where half of my time was spent laughing--a first for me since normally I am sitting white-knuckled in the chair hoping the stylist doesn't cut too much off. Kelly talked to me at length before ever touching my hair with scissors. She very patiently dealt with my control freak paranoia about too much being taken off as happened to me the last time I got a cut. She made me feel she had all the time in the world for me. Kelly is fresh from her Deva certification in NYC and is as enthusiastic as anyone could possibly be about helping you get the most from your curls.She took the time to explain product use and best ways to style. I also got overall color done, which I was extremely happy with. Besides being a hair artist, Kelly is also a fine artist and has some of her own artwork on display in the salon. The salon is also full of artwork and jewelry that's for sale from other various artists. As far as the ambience of the salon, it's great. Someone near me was also getting a manicure/pedicure from Liz. I heard that client wowing about how happy she was, and she planned to refer a relative to the salon. Overall, five curls up!
