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.

Caleb Englert | Junior Stylist

Caleb began his journey in hair during 2011, and since then his education has developed rapidly. Assisting for educators and accomplished senior stylists over the beginning of his career gave him an educated look into what he wanted his future to be. Caleb is a free spirit, and traveling up and down the coast of California exposed him to many different styles and inspirational forms of work. There he dedicated three years focusing on his color education; attending classes at ISSE, workshops at Wella Studio, and hands on education from Schwarzkopf. Caleb’s color pallet is nature inspired; golden blondes, tortoise shell browns, and reds like wine. He loves dimensional color that blends many tones together creating a cohesive and beautiful look.

Over the years Caleb has developed a personal vision for beauty that is quite eclectic. Caleb sees every day of the week as an opportunity to express an idea through style. He embraces many cultural influence and loves combining multiple time periods. Understanding that there are decades worth of hair and fashion to draw inspiration from, Caleb enjoys connecting with his clients by hearing how their individual style has evolved over the years. His own style is greatly influenced by the past yet inspired by the future, combining classics with current trends. With his artistic nature and eye for detail, the hair Caleb creates is precise and inspired. He believes in detail, subtleties, and methodical work that is driven by a passion to be excellent.

Most recently his education has taken him to Sassoon Academy where he is learning advanced hair cutting. These advanced methods allow Caleb to give consistent, long lasting, and beautiful hair cuts. On top of that, he is able to showcase the hair with his advanced education in blow drying from Ibiza Hair Tools. His goal with hair is to always be working towards the next level. From either training in the salon or pursuing outside education, he is always interested in advancing his skill set. As a junior stylist and assistant to our Creative Director, Caleb is learning advanced cutting, coloring, and styling under the supervision of his mentors. He is excited to join the team and pursue his future of creating excellent hair.
