MEET YOUR STYLIST

My name is Kelly Dawn. welcome to my website, it’s a pleasure to have you!

I sincerely hope I get the chance to connect with you and be there for your most memorable day!

As we begin to build a trusting relationship here are a few facts about me: I would like to describe myself as a sweet, passionate and outgoing person. Some of my favorite things in life are family, my godson, puppies & babies, and some good sushi. I am a loyal friend, I am a strong and hard worker, I am passionate and very ambitious. I love life and most importantly I love God.

In my spare time I love to volunteer and give back to the church community. I enjoy pampering myself and have a good time (work hard, play harder). Since I was a child, my favorite hobby has been to first dream, then work hard to make those dreams come true.

I was born in Anchorage, but raised in San Diego. While I could never pull the “born and raised” card, I grew up in the heart of San Diego (North Park to be exact). I am a strong believer that dreams are super powerful (this goes back again to my favorite hobby). When I was young I always dreamed of owning my own salon and I would tell my family and friends about all my crazy, fun ideas. 

One of my favorite memories as a kid, was when I would sneak into my nana’s bathroom and do my hair and makeup.

Becoming a hairstylist and makeup artist was an obvious career path for me. It’s fair to say I have been doing makeup for quite a while. A couple of years after high school, I decided it was time to conquer the world of beauty. I attended the Marinello School of Beauty and graduated with a cosmetology license. I was so excited for this amazing accomplishment that I wasted no time and assisted many wonderful mentors who provided the best advice, techniques and tools to embark me into this beautiful cosmetology career.

BRIDES BY KELLY DAWN

Kelly did my hair and makeup for my wedding in August 2017 and I cannot say enough great things about her and her team! I had tried a few other hair and makeup artists before finding Kelly and did not like the way I looked. When I found Kelly I immediately knew I found the right person!

My hair and makeup were perfect for my wedding day. I’ve truly never felt more beautiful. All of my bridesmaids looked amazing as well. Kelly had a team of hair and makeup artists with her. They were all super professional, arrived early and finished everyone’s hair and makeup much faster than expected! Literally everyone liked their hair and makeup and I’ve never seen that happen with a wedding party before.

Beyond being great at what she does, Kelly is just an incredibly sweet and genuine person. She and her team were a pleasure to be around.
— Bride, Kelsey B.
I had such a great experience with Kelly doing my hair and makeup for my engagement shoot in September 2017. Kelly is so sweet and caring and she will make you feel like a queen! I loved the way my makeup came out and it lasted for a long time. She helped me with my hair extensions and made my hair look so beautiful and natural. I highly recommend Kelly!
— Bride, Micaela M.
So glad I went to Kelly Dawn for my hair color change. She was ready and willing to help me go bold and took every precaution to ensure my hair could handle the change. I love the space and vibe at Southside Salon. I definitely recommend Kelly for all your hair care needs.

Kelly styled my hair for my wedding and I loved it. She is such an amazing and positive soul, and very talented at what she does. She was so nice and open minded to my ideas. We planned on doing a different style on my hair trial, I changed my mind last minute and she was down to do a new style on the wedding day. I just loved the natural look and was extremely happy with the end result.
— Bride, Jessica C.
The space Kelly works in is a rustic modern oasis. It is so beautiful. Walking in, you never want to leave. On top of that, her styling skills are in point. She did my hair for a video shoot, she woke up early with me for the occasion and was her bubbly, happy self. She makes you feel so comfortable when you are at her salon.
