Tim McCollum, President and COO of Lady Jane’s, caught up with a very excited Kelsey to get a good look at the incredible girl who will represent Lady Jane’s in 2015:
Position & Locations: Stylist - Troy, MI
TM: What interested you in being part of the Lady Jane's team?
KS: Lady Jane's became a huge interest of mine when they came to the Paul Mitchell school I was attending at the time. I've always enjoyed making people feel good and cutting men's hair, so I figured why not be the best I can be and work at the best men’s salon in the industry, Lady Jane’s.
TM: So, how long have you worked at LJ?
KS: I began my career at Lady Jane’s five years ago. I was hired the day I graduated from cosmetology school and I started working shortly after obtaining my license.
TM: Other than your career, what are you passionate about?
KS: I have plenty of other interests outside work. I love to read. As many of my clients know, I am BEYOND obsessed with the Harry Potter series. I love to exercise and play sports. I am also an artist. I love to paint and draw; hopefully I will be able to sell some of my works online soon!
TM: What are your ambitions?
KS: Success in my career is really important to me; however, I'm also a very family oriented person and I would love to settle down and have a family of my own one day.
TM: At work you’re on your feet and dealing with all kinds of demands all day long. What is it about this place that keeps you motivated and inspired to come in and cut hair everyday?
KS: Our staff here at Lady Jane's is amazing. The ladies I work with do an excellent job at motivating me, we are all one big family at this store. I love what I do, so I couldn't ask for anything more.
TM: Now a little more about you as a person: who do you look up to as a role model?
KS: My mother is my role model. I look up to her in so many ways. I could go on and on about her being so great, but she is the true meaning of an all around amazing woman.
TM: Favorite sports team?
KS: I love to cheer on the Lions, Tigers and Red Wings, but my favorite team is the Lions! Growing up I was never into sports, but ever since I started working at Lady Jane's I have been fortunate enough to attend many of the Lions' home games.
TM: Favorite restaurant?
KS: My favorite restaurant is a little Italian place called Da Franceso's. My family always took me there growing up. I’m a sucker for carbs covered in marinara sauce or dipped in ranch.
TM: Why do you think you were selected as the LJ Girl for 2015?
KS: I believe I was selected because from day one I have proven myself to be an exceptional stylist and hard worker. My bubbly personality signifies what the LJ girl is all about and I am honored to have been chosen to represent this company. Thanks again, Lady Jane's!
TM: So, other than your career, what are you passionate about?
KS: I love my family, friends, and animals - especially dogs. I would love to volunteer at a rescue shelter and maybe even own one in the future.
TM: Getting back to hair, what is your favorite product to work with?
KS: I absolutely love the new Bed Head Manipulator Matte. It really is the perfect product. It gives a nice textured finish to kids hair, but also gives a firm polished look to the hard part, which is really in style right now.
TM: You certainly embody what it means to be a Lady Jane’s girl, Kelsey. We are proud that you represent the company. Any words of advice to other stylists out there?
KS: Keep doing what you love. If you love your job, you'll never work a day in your life!
TM: Thanks Kelsey! And good luck, you’re going to be Wicked Awesome as the 2015 LJ Girl!
