Hi! I’m Kelly Mathews, and I grew up in the Metroplex here in Texas, and I have been doing hair for 11 years. I have been at Avante for 6 years. I am now an educator and level 4 and also the Education director for both salons at Avante. I have done print work for four issues of hottest hairstyle magazines and have been trained by the Goldwell academies in Baltimore and in Orange County, California. I have also been certified and trained in Loreal Professional and have been to the Soho academy in New York City. I have facial and makeup training from Indianapolis and with GM Collins. My passion is education. I love to learn new trends and put them to use in the salon. Hair is not just a career for me but and art also. I have two beautiful daughters and I have been married for almost 11 years. I love interior design, and I studied it in college at University of North Texas and Dallas Baptist University before I went to Ogle Cosmetology. I also play golf, paint, draw, and garden at my new home, with my family that we built last year, out in the country!
