Kelley Holmes-Morton is a native of Ilion, having graduated from Ilion Central High School and the Herkimer County Career Technical Center in 1995. In 1997, she graduated from Herkimer County Community College and the Finger Lakes School of Massage in 1999.
She became involved in hairstyling at Heads-R-Turning in its former Herkimer location in 1997. That same year, she pursued her licensure in the practice of Massage Therapy at the Finger Lakes School of Massage and graduated in 1999. After 5 years at the Herkimer location, she moved the salon back to her home town of Ilion.
Kelley specializes in Massage Therapy, Body Scrubs, Body Wraps, Facials, Lavender Paraffin Hand & Arm Treatments, Precision Hair Cutting, Hair Coloring, Hi-Lighting/Low-Lighting, Facial Waxing, and Ear Piercing.
She is a member of the NYS Cosmetology Association CNY Affiliate #3. This organization has been in existence since 1922 and offers technically informative classes that aid in developing salon skills and professionalism.
In 2013, The NYS Society of Medical Massage Therapists inducted Kelley into their organization. A Medical Massage Therapist operates at a higher standard of care and a higher level of knowledge. This includes a deeper understanding of Myology (the study of structure, arrangement and action of muscles) Kinesiology (the study of mechanics of body movement) Assessment (the ability to tailor specific home recommendations for each patient, based on their current health status).
It is Kelley’s belief that a service should never be rushed. Necessary time should be allotted for a great consultation and a quality service. Patience and communication is the key to an excellent outcome. She makes every client knowledgeable and comfortable before any service. Kelley strives to make every person who walks through her doors feel better and look their best. Building her clients confidence is what gives her satisfaction at the end of her day and keeps her sleeping at night!

Here’s what My Clients Have To Say:
The salon is clean and beautiful. I like the way she does my hair. My hair looks, and “IS” healthier.
— Eileen McIntyre, Ilion
I went to the salon for the first time the other day. I brought my daughter (10 yrs old) for a haircut. I was very impressed that Kelly listened to my daughter's ideas, and Kelly explained exactly what she was doing and why. She also shared some of her ideas on what would look good for my hairstyle and color. My daughter's haircut came out great, and she loves it. I will definitely be making my next haircut appointment with Kelly.
— Kim, Ilion
I love the salon. There are great people working there. It has a very laid back feel to it. The first time I got my hair colored here, it was the first time that anyone got it right.
— Shawna Huthwaite, Ilion
I love it and look forward to coming. Always excellent service with a personal touch. I learned to use professional salon products and as a result-have nicer hair.
— Laura Skandera, Mohawk
Excellent-up to date on new styles and personal attention to what I like, not what the stylist thinks is best: lets me be me.
— Kim Kovac-Bowman, Ilion
I always get a fantastic haircut and I enjoy the fact that Kelley makes you feel that you are a part of her family. It’s a pleasure to visit the salon.
— Peter Romano, Little Falls
Kelley is one of a kind and always working to meet my needs. The best benefit that I’ve gotten from coming here is to be more professional in my own workplace.
— Dennis Ferguson, Herkimer
It is a pleasure to come here. The variety of services treat the whole person. Kelley is a professional who listens to your requests and fulfills them with expertise. Kelley helps everyone look and feel good!
— Peggy Romano, Little Falls
When I get in the chair, Kelley and I laugh until I leave. I’ve gotten a great cut and color every time and a very good friend! I let Kelley do whatever she had wanted with my hair and that cut is still with me 2 years later and I get compliments almost everyday!
— Jo-Anne Murphy, Ilion, NY
The first time I visited, I wanted something different, like you see on T.V. I told Kelley to cut my hair, color it and do whatever she thought would be right for me. I’ve gotten so many compliments since then, that I’ve continued to go there ever since.
— Suzanne Rodio, Whitesboro
The salon has that state of the art feel-very comfortable and nicely decorated. I am always the #1 priority during my appointment and have never had to wait for my appointment like most other salons.
— Ann Quinn, Newport
