Kelly Wright | Master Colorist

Having always had a love of working with people, Kelly started in the fashion service industry in 1999 as a makeup artist at Make Up Art studio in New Orleans, La. Following her lifelong dream to live in NYC, Kelly moved there in 2001 and soon pursued an education in hair at the Aveda Institute in Soho. Soon into her education, she realized that hair color specifically was her calling.

After completing her education, she then began a color apprentice program at the famed Arrojo Studio. After almost 2 years of color-specific education, she became part of the studio color team in 2007. Over the years, Kelly rose thru the ranks to eventually become a Master Colorist. Even further more, she was named the Color Department Director and Color Education Director.

Kelly has a great love for educating. She was a lead teacher for the Arrojo in-house color apprentice program as well as traveling the country, educating other hairdressers. She has appeared on stage for many industry events, such as, ISSE Long Beach, International Beauty Show NYC, America’s Beauty Show Chicago, Orlando Premiere, Goldwell/KMS on tour, Arrojo Expo, just to name a few. She has also received the Goldwell Master Colorist Certification.

Along with educating, Kelly also loves working behind the chair, working closely with her clients to create classic as well as fashion forward looks. Her color skills run the gamut, but she especially loves blondes, reds, corrective work and hair painting/balyage.

Her artistic vision stems from fashion, nature and her clients own hair desires. She likes to think of her style of coloring as wearable and not fussy, focusing on each clients needs regarding lifestyle, image and skin tone. Kelly is so happy to bring her skill set to WindowWall and to continue creating beautiful colors for her clients here in Portland.
