A FEW THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW WHEN PLANNING YOUR VISIT...                                  


-To avoid the inconvenience of cancellations/no shows, a credit card must be left on file to schedule an appointment. You have up until 24 hrs before your appointment to cancel without incurring any charges. (ex: if your appointment is 12pm June 1, you have until 11:59am May 31 to cancel to avoid cancelation fee) 


-Need a last minute appointment? You are able to schedule as late as 3 hrs before you want to come in.

Kelly is amazing! She was able to provide me with a cut that I am able to manage and my hair has grown so much just in a few weeks. The environment is great as well. She doesn't overbook and I am in and out! I definitely recommend her! - Anita

Kelly brought my and so many other's hair back to life LITERALLY... She's been my stylist for 3+ years now. I've watched and still see her complete so many different styles and techniques I'm amazed at her talent. Coloring, cuts, treatments, natural, relaxed, long, short... Everything she puts her hands on is so good! Her positive energy and professionalism is icing on the cake...

Kelly is an amazing, talented hair stylist! She’s very professional and always on time. She’s makes my natural hair look like I have a relaxer. My hair is always silky, gorgeous and my curls last for over a week. She’s all about hair care and pleasing her clients. My hair is very healthy, free from breakage and shiny, because of her great hair products and skillful hands. I highly recommend her! #TeamWhatRelaxer

I love going to Kelly because I know she's going to give me hair care and not just a hair style. I love how my haor flows and feel when she's done doing what shr does best. I've gone to Kelly for Silk Wraps, Mohawks, Flatirons, even when I went through my blonde phase and always kept me on point during my hair journey. Siovhan T.

There is so much to love about Kelly being a hairstylist, but what I love most is her passion for hair care. After my pregnancy, my hair went through postpartum shedding. The bi-weekly care Kelly gave to my hair, along with the monthly steam treatments gave my hair LIFE... fullness, body, bounce and shine!!! My hair is the healthiest it's been in a long time and it's because I've entrusted 100% of my haircare to "Thee One and Only", Kelly Abston. Come and see her, let her give your hair life too!!!

I am a happy client of more than 10 years and I have never been disappointed. From custom colors to natural hair maintenance she is truly the best. She provides honest hair care with a caring personality to accompany her wonderful service. I crown her my "silk wrap" queen. If you want to build a long term relationship with a stylist and good person you have found her.
