Kelly brings nineteen years of experience in the beauty industry, including seven years in medical spas, to the Beauty team. Kelly is thrilled for the opportunity to combine her luxury and medical spa experience for members of the incredible BIÂN Chicago.
Kelly grew up in Boston's North Shore and received her BS from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She had long been interested in skincare, but an internship at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute’s Look Good… Feel Better program confirmed she wanted a career helping people feel better about themselves, inside and out. Kelly went on to receive her esthetics license in 2003 from the Elizabeth Grady School of Esthetics, graduating at the top of her class.
Kelly started her career in the Boston area providing traditional spa services and truly enjoyed attaining visible results with her clients. She moved to Chicago in 2005 and took the opportunity to achieve further improvements in people's skin conditions through a more medical focus.
Kelly’s continuous education approach includes certifications in chemical peels, skin biology and physiology, microdermabrasion, various lasers and IPL machines as well as advanced facial massage techniques. Now at BIÂN she is able to combine the best of both, providing services including Hydrafacials, Luxury Facials, Dermaplaning, VIPeels, and Venus Legacy/Freeze skin tightening treatments among others.
Harmony’s mission is to pave the way for people feel beautiful, and have confidence in the fact that there are solutions to most skincare desires. Her interest in skin care started early in her life, as she battled her own problematic skin. After attending esthetics school at Estelle Skin care and spa institute, she knew that if she could solve her own skin care health, she could facilitate for others to experience the same. After graduating Harmony spent time working in both medical spas and day spas around Chicago. The greatest reward to Harmony as an esthetician is building strong relationships with her clients and having the privilege of going through their skin care journeys as a dedicated partner and friend.
