My name is Mandi Kelloway, lead stylist and owner of Once Upon A Stylist. A Jacksonville native, I grew up in the salon business and have been beautifying Jacksonville for over 15 years. My studio is conveniently located in the shops of Palencia in St. Augustine where my team and I create fabulous event styles for all of your special occasion needs. During the week, you can find me beautifying my clients at a salon located in historic San Marco – near the heart of Jacksonville. I have the pleasure of working along side, not just my mother but also some of the most talented artists in the hair industry!
I specialize in an array of hair services but am well known for being able to single- handedly beautify large bridal parties with flair and precision.
I am also the very proud founder of the Just For Grins Foundation benefitting girls born with Cleft Lip and Palate. Just for Grins hosts an annual day celebrating these beautiful princesses with makeovers, a professional photo-shoot and lots of love and fun. I know first hand how very vital it is to teach young ladies the importance of self-worth and that they can achieve their loftiest goals because like them, I was born with Cleft Lip & Palate.
Please join me at my salon or studio and allow me the pleasure of getting to know you and helping you to look and feel like the beautiful person that you are. I cant wait to meet you!
