Serenity Salon: Best Color Correction Specialist, Highlights in Wilmington, NC!
My name is Kelly Benoit. I began my professional career in the beauty industry in 2015 after working for a local grocery store for 9.5 years. I had always enjoyed cutting and coloring my moms hair. Beauty school was not always my first choice but it has definitely paid off to be the best one. Hair has become my passion and I wish I had decided to do this years before I did.
I am a CHI Master Colorist. I was a manager of a corporate salon for 3.5 years before moving on to own my own. I was nominated for Stylist of the Year by my co-workers. I have attended numerous conferences and classes held by Farouk Systems in Cancun and Las Vegas to keep on top of current styles and trends. I also pride myself on staying in touch with the latest techniques and innovations.
I am a very down to earth genuinely happy individual. I want my guests to feel at home when they are with me and in my chair. I enjoy forming relationships with each of them. I take the time to listen to what my guests are trying to achieve and advise them on the best way to accomplish the polished look. I teach how to get the same look at home as we get in the salon via blow drying techniques or simply the use of the right products for their hair type. The guests time is valuable to me and I never rush them out the door. They always leave as if they are my only guest.
I have taken much pride in trying to get a “homey” feel within my suite. I want everyone who enters my room to be able to relax, take a load off and enjoy our time together each and every time I see them. I have decorated in bright colors as it matches my personality and it is a happy place for both the guest and myself. The building as a whole is easy to navigate so you never feel like you are lost within. The atmosphere is inviting and professional. Beautiful wall scones and water features welcome you upon your arrival.
I enjoy the whole aspect of this profession. With every hair care service I offer a complimentary shampoo and scalp massage, which is second to none. I also offer the following services:
- Mens, Kids and Womens Cut and Styles

I choose to use CHI products for all of my color services because it is ammonia free and it has a high level of accuracy and consistency. It offers a great shine while keeping your hair healthy and smooth. They have a wide variety of colors and options for you to achieve any look you are wanting. They have a product line for all hair types.
