Kelly Ferguson



After being asked recently by her 11 year old daughter, 'What would your dream job be?' Kelly answered, 'I'm doing it!' she truly sees her craft behind the chair as not only an opportunity to offer each client a unique style, but also to share in this beautiful life God has given us. After 20 years in this industry, and beginning as an apprentice she values continuing education as a tool to keep her passion for her craft alive. She has learned from many masters such as Sebastian, Paul Mitchell, and Vidal Sassoon. 

Kelly is also a certified SOCAP extension specialist.
