From one hair addict to you, I’d like to formally announce Hair-Kissed salon as my one and only hair vice as long as I live. Any joking aside, this salon is absolutely amazing, a hidden gem in Glastonbury, CT.
I have always loved playing around with my hair. From chopping off a good 12 inches of hair as a little girl (sorry for the sudden shock, Dad) to enlisting my Mom as my personal hair technician with bright red and purple box dyes, the need to change and reinvent has always felt inspiring. A new hair cut can change your day, and a bright new color can change your week. The confidence that comes from the perfect hair style starts when the chair spins around and you catch the first glimpse of a brand new you.
Owned by local hair stylists Kellie Lauzon and Carly Allen, their shared love of all things hair make this salon the perfect environment. With years of experience under their belts, opening a salon was the smart next step for these passionate ladies. “Everyone says they have always wanted to do hair, but I truly have!” said Kellie who received her cosmetology license in 2011 from the International Institute of Cosmetology. Carly began her career in 2010 as an assistant, and found her love of cut, color, extensions, and bridal styling over the past several years. Kellie and Carly meshed immediately over their deep passion for styling, bridal hair, and their artistry as stylists above all else.
Carly is certified in Deva Curl and Keratin Complex. Kellie is certified in Keratin Complex, Brazilian Blowout, Hair Dreams Extensions, and Dream Catchers Extensions. The powerhouse team is unstoppable with their time and consideration with each client. Their goal is the listen and really understand what their client wants, while educating them on how they can achieve the look with their hair type. Curly hair, damaged hair, short, long, in-between hair, don’t care! These two can take on any challenge and have fun doing it.
“My true passion and specialty is bridal hair styling and event styling. My salon Hair-Kissed is a place I can showcase my experience and extensive education in hair. I am so lucky to have teamed up with fellow hair artist and stylist Carly who shares my dream of a place where hair is the only thing that matters.” – Kellie
Grab a hot cup of coffee from their adorable mint colored Keurig, sit back, and relax. What is so great about their salon is the privacy. So often we undergo these awkward hair transitions that can be embarrassing. We may have a hair emergency or would just like a little peace and quiet as we sit with bleach on our head. With laid back music in the background and clean, secluded space to have all attention on you, it’s a breath of fresh air to go to a salon where our stylist truly listens, and gives their expert input on how to get the most out of your cut and color. You can tell these girls truly care about their clients and it isn’t all about getting you in and out with cash in their hands. You leave with the hair you envisioned, and that’s hard to come by.
