Kelcie Dies

Pelzer, SC, Kenneth Shuler School of Cosmetology

“Art of Haircoloring” Miller Family Scholarship – $5,000

Kelcie’s earliest memories of hair color date  back to dying her Barbie doll’s hair with soda. But while the passion for beauty was always there, she felt pressured to attend a four-year school. A quarter-life crisis inspired her to follow her dreams. “As hairstylists, we change people physically, but we also get to change them from the inside out,” she says. She’s come a long way since her days of soda color as she focuses on texture, volume and dimensional color.  Watch her video here.
