    I’ve grown out my hair over the last year but I feel it has no real style – it just is. I’d love a great style for nedium-long hair. I also am on the struggle bus with a TON of grays and any help on the color front to minimize upkeep would be amazing.

    Right now I’m rocking bayalage, but it’s really grown out. I ‘d like to darken it up for fall/winter and get back my long layers!

  9. Maria Marcano
    December 13, 2017 / 10:14 pm

    I have a botched bayalage that hasn’t made me feel my best and I would love to be able to correct it! As well as get a bolder style 😍

  10. Aimee
    December 13, 2017 / 10:28 pm

    I’d love a cut & some highlights! I haven’t had anything done to my hair in over a year! My kids take up all of my time, and while I LOVE every second of it, I could definitely use some time to get myself to a better place 🙂

  11. Mary
    December 13, 2017 / 10:41 pm

    Perhaps my canas cuz I’m getting old and they grow out like weeds… oh and lighten my balayage… but that’s it!!! Merry Christmas!

    I would love to get lowlights or balayage on my hair. My hairdresser left Miami for Colorado last summer and I’ve struggled to find a person since then!

    I’d love to darken my hair and add some lived in color to it. I’d also like to add some layers, since my hair feels pretty heavy and I want to thin it. 🙂

  16. Elizabeth Mayorquin
    December 14, 2017 / 12:11 am

    My hair needs some major inspo and change. I’ve akeats loved a longer cut on me, however having thinner oily hair- it’s alwats been a change to find the right cut. Open to something new! And perhaps lightening my reddish, brown hair a bit!

  17. Erica Ramirez
    December 14, 2017 / 12:17 am

    I have mid length hair with a grown out balayage. I’d like to spruce up the color and add both face framing highlights and a lot of thin natural lights throughout. As for the cut keep a flowy fringe and long layers.

  18. Stephanie Gonzalez
    December 14, 2017 / 12:28 am

    I would love to get a haircut/ maybe dye? and voluminous blow out! That I actually never do to myself!

    Hi Kelly,

    Thanks for a great giveaway. I would like to get a great haircut that will be sudable for my face structure and give volume to my hair. Layers will be great and some lowlights as well.
    Lookinf forward in meeting you.

    I’ve never had luck with a real decent hair stylist after an awful hair color experience 6 years ago. Your hair always looks fantastic and I would love to switch it up for myself and have it blessed by your hair goddesses. A little highlight and cut would be phenomenal:)

  21. Gaby viteri
    December 14, 2017 / 7:17 am

    Greatful for all. Good and bad. Its all an opportunity for something.

    Hair: it has been untouched for years. Fell out after years of strong pain medicine that culminated in back surgery. Now it’s finally growing in, and I would love for it to look fab with a modern cut and color. Scared to have anyone touch it after so long, but this is giving me a little courage

  22. Karina
    December 14, 2017 / 7:33 am

    I would LOOOVE to chop off my hair short and donate the locks to a charity. Balayage would also be great

  23. Amy
    December 14, 2017 / 7:37 am

    Love the way you style your short hair and would like to try those beachy waves.

  26. Samantha
    December 14, 2017 / 8:19 am

    If I win, I would love some highlights and wavy bob! My hair is thinning bc I had a baby and I need a hair makeover.

  27. Odalys Caballero
    December 14, 2017 / 8:36 am

    I think I’d like to elevate my cut, and I have virgin hair but I always said when I was 30 I’d let myself start color and I turn 31 in January!

  28. Stefanie Ibertis
    December 14, 2017 / 8:47 am

    Volume! I need volume…bad!

  29. December 14, 2017 / 9:18 am

  30. Alexandra Trujillo
    December 14, 2017 / 9:57 am

    I’m getting married in the upcoming year so I really want my hair to grow but also keep it healthy. I’d love to go a tad blonder and maybe a deep conditioning treatment 🙂

  31. Maria Vasquez
    December 14, 2017 / 10:46 am


    I have long dark brown hair and I go through stages where I get super bored and chop it off. And then regret the growing stage and the extra time to takes to style shorter hair. I’ve tried red hair and blonde highlights but not for me!! So in order to spice things up this year end, I would love to lighten the ends…

    Also, some clip on bangs may not be bad idea. Ha!

  32. Karla Mercado
    December 14, 2017 / 11:19 am

    i’d like to freshen up my hair with a conditioning treatment and then finish with a great blow dry!!!


  33. Michelle Abreu

    I would do something drastic! A definitely needed mommy makeover!! Maybe lilac hair or extreme blonde! This mom needs to feel like a woman again!

  34. Nicole
    December 14, 2017 / 2:28 pm

    I have long hair but I want to get it shorter with layers and I also want to get highlights. I did balayage earlier this year at IGK and I‎t was amazing but once I get a cut they are going to be gone so I want to get that look back but slightly ashier and lighter

  35. Maura
    December 14, 2017 / 3:44 pm

    Would be open to just about anything as long as it’s chic, and no shorter than shoulder length!

  36. Alejandra
    December 14, 2017 / 4:49 pm

  37. Sabrina Pimentel
    December 14, 2017 / 5:36 pm

    I would love to freshen up my color and definitely do a styled cut! I want my hair to have a fresh start for the new year. A conditioning treatment would also be great since I’m growing my hair for the wedding next year 😉

  40. Jackeline Gonzalez
    December 14, 2017 / 8:55 pm

    I would love a new mommy do! Some highlights, a nice haircut and a blow-dry would make me look as good as new! 🦄

    It’s so nice of you to be doing this Kelly! If chosen, i would love a new haircut, maybe highlights or perhaps a balayage. It’s time to embrace the CHANGES!! 🙂

  44. December 15, 2017 / 10:18 am

    Hair is the one thing I need to know how to manage more! I have a lob style and I never know how to style it. I try and fail. I would love to get some color, tiny tiny trim, and some lovely loose curls! I’ll take notes! Love you Kelly! You are killing it in this industry! Would love to meet you ❤️

  45. Giselle Perez
    December 15, 2017 / 10:54 pm

    I haven’t done anything more than a casual trim for the last few years & the frizz is currently out of control. I would love to get a deep conditioning treatment, a nice fresh haircut & give balayage & ombré a try! Change is good & new hair would be great to welcome the new year!

  46. Laura
    December 15, 2017 / 11:22 pm

    I would love a nice cut and some styling. It would be nice to be able to have something done as all my money goes to the Florida bar examination 😩.

  49. December 16, 2017 / 8:36 am

  50. Suyen Leon
    December 16, 2017 / 10:12 am

    Oh wow…. I’d love to go really blonde. It’s scary because I don’t want to over process or damage my hair but I dream of being really blonde!

  51. Giselle
    December 16, 2017 / 10:40 am

    It’s been a tough year and my hair has been on the back burner while my focus has been on my toddler, would love to update my look with a bob and some highlights to cover those grays coming in! Subscriber! Happy Holidays!

  52. Elizabeth
    December 16, 2017 / 5:12 pm

    I’ve been dying to go a lot lighter that my natural brunette locks. I did highlights a while back and now that its grown out I wanted to change my look just in time for spring, but I’ve had a hard time finding a stylist I trust. I also was thinking of going for long bob since long hair in Miami has become a little high maintenance. Looking forward to some change!

  53. Natalie
    December 17, 2017 / 9:17 pm

    This is such a treat! You’re so awesome!
    I would definitely like to do balayage on my hair and cut the ends or maybe even a treatment. Anything to start 2018 with fab hair! 💕

  54. December 18, 2017 / 11:50 am

    I’d like to cut my hair short since I’ve NEVER done it and don’t really trust anyone. I figure I can always get extensions if I don’t like it lol

  55. Jennifer C
    December 18, 2017 / 1:10 pm

    I would love a fresh trim and some honey balayage highlights!

  56. Denisse Carranza
    December 18, 2017 / 1:49 pm

  57. Kellie Llona
    December 19, 2017 / 11:31 pm

    I’m in desperate need of a haircut and color! I’ve been living in Miami for a few years now but I’ve been hesitant to go to anyone but my stylist in Tampa. I’m ready to find someone in Miami who I trust! #newyear #newhair

    December 20, 2017 / 7:43 am

  59. Claudia López
    December 20, 2017 / 11:47 am

    I think my hair needs some TLC lol a nice cut to trim away those ends that have been fried after a year of hairstyles and to top it all off a nice blowout would be pretty amazing. What a great opportunity to have some girl time and to get to know you on a more one on one level you’re very inspiring with such an approachability nature, how fun it would be !

  60. Lynn Machin
    December 20, 2017 / 9:08 pm

    I’ve been wanting to go shorter and more angled, maybe a little color, some low lights or bayalage.
