SHE’S A DIAMOND
Caroline Kells is a full-time educator for KEVIN.MURPHY. She started her hairdressing career with an apprenticeship at Elements in Oxted, and fell in love with her ability to make people look and feel great. Realising that her passion lay in education, she joined KEVIN.MURPHY as a freelance educator and now she’s been promoted to DIAMOND.KEY – a serious accomplishment! We caught up with her to find out more …
Congratulations Caroline Kells! Tell us what this means to you?
I can’t believe it! It is such an honour to become a DIAMOND.KEY – being part of the KEVIN.MURPHY education team has always felt very special to me. KM has a very unique and supportive approach. Their mantra is “never above you, never below you, always beside you”, which in my experience is very true. I strive to deliver and support my colleagues and other stylists in this way.
How will being a DIAMOND.KEY change your career?
It means I’ll be supporting my colleagues as much as possible. But that I’ll also get to work backstage at Fashion Weeks, too. When you’re backstage, you work in synergy with a team and it’s really fast paced and exciting. I love bringing back what I have learnt and sharing it with salons.
How did you first get involved with Kevin Murphy?
I started using KEVIN.MURPHY in the first salon I worked in and it was always my go-to choice. When I visited SESSION.SALON – I fell in love with the brand. It reignited my passion for hairdressing and I knew I had to be a part of it. So, I became a freelance KEY when I wasn’t working in the salon, and now I work full-time teaching KEVIN.MURPHY and COLOR.ME.
What do you love about the brand?
It’s values. FASHION, PERFORMANCE and ENVIRONMENT. Everything KM does is centred around these three pillars, and they always stay true to their philosophies. The brand wouldn’t be what it was if it wasn’t for the people behind it, too. Kevin is so inspiring and so humble, and everyone in the KM family is the same. It’s lovely to be a part of it.
Any favourite products?
There are so many! But I’d have to say ANTI.GRAVITY, MAXI.WASH and STAYING.ALIVE
