About Katie

In 2006, I moved from New England to Charleston, to begin my journey into the hair industry. Throughout my career, I have fully immerse myself in learning all I can about the cosmetology industry, from business classes to emerging hair trends. I specialize in customer service, providing each guest with a genuine, personalized service while creating a customized look for each guest based on their hair goals. My other specialties include dimensional color, precision cuts, and educating each guest on how to maintain their hair at home!

My desire to begin a career in the beauty industry started in 2003 when I worked as a front desk coordinator for a successful salon in Massachusetts. This allowed me to see the genuine appreciation each stylist had for their guests and vice versa. It was this side of the industry that motivated me to make a career change. I loved the personalize connection between stylist and guest and I strive to create that bond, all while creating bad a** hair!
