I'm brooklyn.

I wear many hats. (figuratively and literally.....and they are not all yellow) I'm a mom, wife, hair stylist, salon owner, platform artist and educator.  I attribute all my accomplishments to the fact that I'm fueled by coffee and hip hop music. I comb, paint and pin hairs. But most of all. I connect with people. I believe I get the opportunity to simply make people feel like a glammed up version of themselves.

"Hair Stylist- Salon Owner-Artist-Educator"

I would say my "job" is pretty cool! My husband and I the proud owners of Kelly Cardenas salon and studio in Carlsbad, California. This creative space is home to podcasts, film, and photoshoots as well as 5 star boutique hair services. I get to travel the country sharing my nearly two decades of knowledge in the professional beauty industry to audiences of 1 to 1000. I get to glam beauties as they walk down runways at NYFW and work with creatives behind the scenes on film and photoshoots.
 I also have had the honor of taking care of hundreds of brides on their most cherished day. My work has sprawled the pages and covers of publications like Estetica, American Salon and Exquisite Weddings Magazine. I have been featured in blogs including Green Wedding Shoes, Aisle Society, June Bug weddings, and Bridal Vogue.
It kinda feels like a dream. Oh wait! This IS my dream! The only thing that's missing is Bruno Mars as my best friend (it's only a matter of time). If you would like to know more, let’s connect! We can grab a glass of wine or take a walk by the beach.
