KELSO HOPE

Kelso loves the styling process. In fact, she specializes in blowouts and Updos. She is currently obsessed with creating vibrant looks with a mixture of hand painting and foil work interspersed throughout the hair. Kelso also loves finding new ways to create more diverse looks.

Even though she always knew she wanted to be a hair stylist, she found herself in an unsupportive situation and didn’t initially pursue it as a career path.

She had a change of heart after meeting a woman while in China.

She trains and employs women who have come out of of prostitution and teaches them how to work and gains life skills.

“I want to help change people’s lives,” Kelso said. “That’s when I decided this profession was more than just hair.
