I've been a stylist in Northeast Ohio for 14 years.
From creating custom looks day to day, that flatter each individual, to venturing all over the country to learn hands on new trends and todays modern techniques.
Currently residing in Hudson, just outside of the city.
I am so proud to call Cleveland my home. When I am not behind the chair you can find me updating the salon, enjoying time with my new husband and family, loving on my pup (Kosie), exploring new cities, working on my fitness, supporting local restaurants, staying active, updating my wardrobe, enjoying a baseball game, relaxing with a glass of wine, and watching the sunset on a warm summer night.
My true passion really is behind the chair, performing new styles, trends, and techniques, watching videos, and continuously talking about hair, because...
Hair GIVES. ME. LIFE.
It lights my fire and I couldn't see myself doing in anything else.
I take pride in the attention to detail, perfecting looks to compliment your lifestyle, creating that stylist/client bond, and truly providing you with that effortless look you've been dreaming of.
Education has always been a forefront in my career as a stylist.
You will find me traveling to New York City, Los Angeles, West Hollywood, Chicago, Phoenix, Nashville, Houston, Charolette, and for training by the best in the business. These talents include:
Habit Hand Tied Extensions Method (@hairbychrissy)
Laced Hand Tied Extensions Method
The Luna Method
Heyday Hand Tied Method
Bumble and Bumble
Nine Zero One
Wella Color Professionals
and many more industry leaders and educators.
My goal is to give you the beautiful and healthy hair you have always dreamed of.

"Kelly is honestly the only person I trust with my hair. After YEARS of going to the wrong stylist, finding Kelly was such a blessing. No matter what picture I show her for inspiration, she nails it! On top of that her salon is minimal and just so cute. Going to see her is my favorite part of the day when I have an appointment. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"

"I always look forward to my regular appointments with Kelly Jo Hair. You are always greeted with a smile and I am always smiling when I leave because Kelly Jo makes me look as good as possible. I've been a client for more than five years now and I'm so thankful I found Kelly."
"Kelly makes me feel like we're a team when it comes to my color, cut, and style.
Kelly asks questions and listens before she does anything with my hair, EVERY time. I enjoy spending time with Kelly every five weeks. Kelly is so great about listening and sharing stories about our life and travels. She truly remembers details I have shared in the past. There are very few people you see as often as your hair stylist. I am so happy Kelly is mine!"
