Want to look like a celebrity yourself, without the hefty price tag???
Take these tips from Kelley, asked by your truly:
*Is there a certain trend hairstyle you are seeing or having requested the most right now?
“Waves and braids… Every woman wants lots of volume and movement. Stick straight is so last century”
*Kelley, what is your favorite tip on caring for your hair?
“Conditioning treatments are a must… no matter the texture or length EVERY head of hair needs to be moisturized at least once a month. “
* Do you recommend washing your hair every other day as opposed to every day?
“Absolutely. Our natural oils benefit our scalps tremendously… I tell clients to try and go 2 at the least… on that last day there are so many options.. ponytails, buns, braids, twists… Headbands are so in right now .. a great excuse to throw one in! My favorite is Bandos! www.shopbando.com
*I’ve heard that if you see gray hair and pluck it out, it will start to thin your hair. Is that true in your opinion? If someone only has a few gray hairs, is it time to start dying their hair or should they just trim those stray pieces?
“Never pull or pluck the hair out of your head… There are so many options you can go before you start to permanently color your hair… semi-permanent colors are great as well as gloss’s that can camouflage the gray while adding protein to the hair at the same time.”

*Do you have a favorite natural conditioning treatment or mask people can do at home?
“Avocados are the best treatments for hair and skin… so many great oils that benefit as well as adding shine… I love the KERASTASE line .. the masks are great for treatments at home as well as everyday use depending on your hair needs.”
*There are tons of straightening irons on the market and mine has smoked itself to death (literally!). Is there a favorite brand that you like and do you prefer?
“The Croq and T3 irons are my favorite… The Croq can heat up to 450 degrees so you have to be careful.. its more for that unruly curl that desires to be straight from time to time.. the T3 has is ionic so it protects from overheating and burning the hair.”
Thanks, Kelley! Now YOU can look like a high roller wherever you may be!
