Kelsey joined the Akari team in 2018. She decided to pursue her cosmetology career after attending the University of Southern Maine for Early Childhood Education. Growing up, Kelsey was always intrigued by hair and styling, and by the age of 11, she was helping her grandmother color her hair. Kelsey has continued to nurture her skills through the Akari apprentice program and attending classes through Bumble & Bumble and Oribe. She loves helping her clients feel and look confident every time they leave her chair.
