London born Kelly May is a session stylist who counts over 20 years experience in the hair industry.
Her love for hair started from a very young age, when she began working at her uncle’s salon during the weekends and school holidays. She soon picked up the craft and started attending yearly hair shows to further enhance her knowledge. With a knack for trend prediction, Kelly May quickly turned her pastime into a full-time job, when she landed her first apprenticeship in Mayfair. Her impeccable customer care and attention to detail led her from strength to strength, pursuing her career in some of the top hair salons in London as well as becoming part of the L’Oréal ID team.
After a 4-year stint at Neville Hair and Beauty, May is now the artistic Director of the very first tech-savvy Amazon Salon in London. Having assisted the Neville artistic team on numerous shows in Rome, London and Paris, Kelly has also established a name for herself in the session world working with titles such as Unblock Magazine and Harper’s Bazaar. Kelly’s artistic flair has enabled her to travel the world and amass a phenomenal clientele.
Amongst her clients she counts Marchioness Emma Weymouth, Lady Amelia and Lady Eliza Spencer, as well as Lady Kitty Spencer, whom she styled for the wedding of the Duke & Duchess of Sussex and many other events for Dolce & Gabbana and Bulgari.
