About  Me

First off I am a lover of coffee, local shops, fresh flowers and a little designer fashion. You can find me in the aisle of Target on my days off and my browser history would show my true shopaholic nature. My friends would tell you how much I love to host parties and potlucks, and how I am always trying to get them to participate in game nights. A good charcuterie board & a glass of Pinot Noir makes a perfect date night. My husband Kyle has been my rock and biggest supporter. We love to bbq, go camping and travel the world together. 


The first time I stepped into a Salon, I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere. I have always had a passion for many things, but hair just brought a sense of accomplishment, challenge and joy to my life. Licensed Cosmetologist since 2004, I have the utmost respect for our industry. Its been a wonderful journey, and my career wouldn't be possible without the amazing clients I get to service on a day to day basis. Nothing brings me more happiness than to make someone feel and look beautiful. Keune Hair Cosmetics has been my luxury color product choice for over 10 years. I started educating for the company in 2011 and I am blessed to be able to travel the U.S. while inspiring other hair stylists with the newest products, trends and techniques. In 2018, I became one of the new owners of KINshoppe Salon in Ventura, CA. I have always wanted to own a salon so I am excited for this journey. My love for education and dedication to this craft has allowed me to give my clients the absolute best experience in the salon. I strive everyday to learn something new and keep challenging myself to be a better hairdresser for my clients and salon owner for my stylists.


"Tara Kelsey is not only amazing and so creative/gifted with all haircuts, but her color expertise is off the charts!  I have trusted Tara with my hair for years, have followed her everywhere she goes, and have only been beyond pleased with everything she does.  Each time I see Tara, I love not only my hair, but our time together!  She is a love!  I don't have a daughter and would love to have had a daughter like Tara!  She is going to go far in her life!  I cannot recommend her more!!!!"

"Tara Kelsey is amazing with my short hair!! She is patient with me and always does such a beautiful job with my cut and color! Love her kind personality and her sweet heart too... Highly recommend you give her a try with her years of experience and knowledge!"

LOVE Tara Kelsey Wellman at the KINshoppe! She's the absolute best! You will NOT regret going to her  I am a natural (dirty) blonde with VERY fine hair and she's the only person I know that could get me to a super cute and  funky copper red balayage and leave my hair in amazing condition. I have been every color imaginable but I've been opting for easy low maintenance looks. Yesterday I came in with some super uneven babylights I did on myself myself during quarantine  and an awful home haircut and she worked some magic y'all and I couldn't be any happier with the results. All the girls in the salon are super sweet and extremely professional and make you feel very welcomed and comfortable. The salon is such a cool vibe and very laid back but chic! You won't regret coming to KINshoppe salon.
