Reel Design Team
Kelly is a Color and Style Specialist. Her own passion and success in the Bridal Beauty industry is the basis for building the ReelStyle Bridal Brand. She started her bridal passion by pursuing a Fashion Design Degree, specialized in bridal gowns, from The Fashion Institute & Technology of New York. She was already a licensed beautician at age 18, and built her reputation in the beauty industry while putting herself through school. Upon graduation, she had her final Gown chosen by Demetrios himself of "Demetrios Bridal" for a window display in his Midtown Bridal Salon. Kelly's designing ambitions seemed to take a back seat to her hair career, but plays an important part in her inspiration. Now her approach to hair designing and coloring is based on the same foundation she studied in Garment Design.
Over the past few years, Kelly has become one of the most in demand personal and bridal hair stylists in the New Jersey/New York area! Her styling book includes celebrity clientele such as Priyanka Chopra, Martha MacCallum, Kate Bock and industry leading companies including Ted Gibson, Sports Illustrated, and Berta Bridal!
"Hair is fabric. There are different textures, weights, volume, the ability to create structured designs, and mobility with in a design that all has to be calculated." I always think back to the saying...
"Wear the dress, don't let the dress wear you."
"Bridal hair should complete each Bride's ideal vision of themselves. The beauty choices we help them make need to be comfortable and photograph flawlessly from every angle, while lasting all day and night. Longevity in every Bride's style is a standard we won't compromise."
Contract and Essentials Coordinator
Kelly and I have been friends for 16 years. We both knew the dynamic of our personal relationship would transfer to a beautiful professional and respectful partnership. Kelly asked me to become a partner to expand ReelStyle Bridal. My experience with administrative work and customer service is as elaborate as my skills with accessory design and floral arrangements. My mother has been a bridal florist for 36 years and instilled in me the same passion for the industry from a young age.
Kelly and I REELy know all the details to say I DO...pun intended!
