Canadian-born, New York and Hudson based Hair and Makeup Artist Kelley Quan views makeup and grooming with an integrative eye and is known for her minimalist aesthetic and focus on radiant skin and hair. Her trademark is her deconstructionist approach to both makeup and hair. ‘I try to explore my subjects in a way that allows each to see themselves in a deeper way that generates a sense of calm and serenity before they head off to any set’ explains Kelley. Kelley’s education in painting and art history, and integrative Reiki practice influence her work in equal measure, allowing her to create both artistic editorial and luminous, naturalistic makeup looks.
Her clients include: Adidas, Aerie, Avon, Botegga Veneta, Bust, Covergirl, E.L.F. Cosmetics, Elle, Dooney & Bourke, Harper's Bazaar U.S., GQ, Hanes, Macy's, Nordstrom, Kate Spade, Modern Luxury, Nike, Puma, Champion, SJP Beauty, Timberland and Wrap London amongst many other.
She has a namesake line of pro level vegan beauty tools, launched in 2013 and is the founder of The Registry Creatives, a Hudson Valley area creative registry and Zine for the commercial photography industry which launched in 2020.
