Meet Our Team
Kelly is a Redken Certified Master Colorist. “As a little girl, I would pack my overnight bag and go door-to-door in the neighborhood looking for anyone that would let me work on them! And if you ever came to visit, you were fair game.” Kelly has had the stylist gene since she was a small child. That interest grew into a career that has lasted over 39 years. Kelly has spent her career training and mentoring many stylists, all the while building a great life for herself and many others.
Melissa, the salon's second Redken Certified Master Colorist, started her career in cosmetology at age 20 when she graduated from the International Beauty School in 2002. Opposite Genders has been her home ever since. She has had the opportunity to further her education with some of the world’s top stylists at the Graham Webb Academy and the Redken Exchange, 5th Avenue. There, she has obtained many advanced certifications in cutting and coloring.
Kim has been in the hair industry since 1984, starting in Baltimore, where she worked for 10 years before returning to Cumberland. She has been with Opposite Genders since 1996, during which time she has attended several educational trips to the Redken Exchange 5th Avenue NYC, and taken multiple classes with P.M., Graham Webb Academy, and International Conferences, NY. “The pleasure of my career choice is the benefit of helping people feel better about themselves. Doesn’t everyone want to feel good when they look in the mirror?”
