Short Version: I LOVE HAIR!
Whether working with clients out of her exclusive Gastown salon, refining her skills through education or traveling the globe inspiring hairstylists, Kelley Schedewitz is passionate about hair. Her trendsetting vision and drive for perfection have made her popular with clients locally and throughout North America.
Kelley has educated for some of the most celebrated brands in the hair business including Joico, Bumble & bumble, Minardi, Vivienne MacKinder and KEVIN.MURPHY. Passionate about education, she has presented as a Platform Artist/Educator throughout North America. And when not teaching, she’s learning – Kelley is constantly refining her skills through education to keep her on the cutting edge of the latest techniques and trends in hair, beauty and fashion.
Kelley’s portfolio is varied and extensive – from celebrity clientele to fashion weeks around the world. High profile events have included the opening and closing ceremonies of the Vancouver Olympic Games, as well as the Juno Awards. Her celebrity clients include Hedley, Nickelback, Simple Plan and The Stereos. She has worked the runways of New York, Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, as well as BC Fashion Week, and Vancouver Fashion Week. She’s also been quoted in high profile magazines Elle Canada and FASHION Magazine and has a number of television credits to her name, including “Canada’s Next Top Model,” “Breakfast Television” and “Urban Rush.”
In 2009, Kelley opened a boutique salon in Vancouver’s Gastown. As Owner and Creative Director, her goal is to help clients find the perfect style for them. Taking into account face shape, skin tone and lifestyle, as well as current trends and innovations, she takes the time to educate each client about styling, product recommendations and maintenance. She is accomplished in color chemistry and advanced application techniques, razor cutting and styling – from soft, timeless, classic shapes to the wildest cuts and color combinations, and specializes in corrective color to bring chemically tortured hair back to life, restoring its integrity. Kelley’s number one objective is to provide personalized care combined with a relaxed atmosphere. She has a commitment to helping clients achieve their hair goals and, most importantly, love their hair. The self-described product junkie will work with clients to create a custom routine tailored to their specific needs. Both a perfectionist and a realist, Kelley will make sure each client’s unique needs and wants are taken care of in the most practical and authentic way.
