Meet Kellyn Jones. She is our salon owner and leader, educator, and visionary. She is a Leo, loves yoga, meditation, and crystals and is one of our lead stylists at the studio.
A life-long student, Kellyn has bold expectations for herself and others. She is fearless in gaining knowledge on the newest hair trends and techniques, while growing with the hair industry. As a mentor and educator, she is dedicated to empowering students with techniques that grow their confidence in a nonjudgmental environment. Kellyn loves inspiring people and being inspired by others. She chooses to surround herself with a creative and supportive team that is dedicated to learning.
Kellyn’s love for nature and natural products started in hairdressing school at the Aveda Institute in Indianapolis in 2005. She had gained knowledge early in her career about self-care that was priceless to creating a healthy foundation. She was always seeking this idea of fulfillment that went beyond doing great hair. Her drive to become a better version of herself and offer a healthy salon environment came to surface when she opened her first salon, Bow & Arrow in 2014 in Boston’s North End. Kellyn opened the salon to bring something different to the beauty industry. A place that empowers others to make mindful decisions on their beauty care routine while offering natural alternatives. Kellyn supports and encourages others to find health and happiness. In 2018 there was a brand change to KJ Hair Studio and is located in the same location at 215 Hanover Street in Boston’s North End. Kellyn is happy to continue her beliefs, her mission, and her dream under a new name.
“I can’t remember a day that hair wasn’t on my mind. I have loved hair and the beauty industry before I was even a professional hairdresser. This is more than just a career, this is my calling. After working for many salons and experiencing that this industry glorifies unhealthy habits and practices, I was ready to make a change and open my own salon. A salon that encourages health and self-care in a creative and supportive team environment. “
