Josh and I are happy to welcome you to Strut-our salon within Salon Lofts. We want to help you "Strut your stuff" in style! Whether your style is retro, extreme or more natural we've got you covered.  We do specialize in more advanced cuts, color and styling, so if you need upstyling for an event, love retro looks from the 20's to the 70's, crave extreme color or want to create a totally unique look we'd love to help. We also practice European razor cutting techniques, so if you've had trouble finding a stylist to create those wonderful styles you see on Europe's runways, we can give you the cut you're looking for.  Call or text us at 614-565-6416 for an appointment, or to book online, visit us at

"I have been going to Josh and M'Lou for the past 5 years, and I will not go to anyone else! They are able to create exactly what I envision, and their creativity encourages me to think outside of the box. I always receive complements from my friends and family. Their loft is always welcoming and full of joy! I cannot imaging going to anyone else!!!"

"I recently decided that I needed a change after about 9 years of having the same haircut/color. I picked M'Lou because of her profile on Salon Lofts, and she exceeded my expectations. M'Lou quickly made me feel welcome and comfortable, and took her time in helping me pick out what my new hair color(s) would be. The appointment took longer than allotted, but she was gracious in working me into her schedule for the day. I am really enjoying my new hair colors, and I have had many compliments since then. The whole experience was a pleasure, especially the conversation, and I look forward to seeing M'lou again in the future!"

"Last year i ran into Josh at a grocery store when i had a black mowhawk. He gave me his card and told me about the extreme color specialty at their salon. This year for my birthday i wanted a blue flattop so I was happy to have Josh cut and color it. He was receiving compliments on the color he created even before the cut was finished! The flattop and color are beautiful and striking...the compliments are just getting started. Thanks to Josh and MLou!! Les H"

"M'Lou is an artist. She creates beautiful works of art with each hair style. I've been with M'Lou since 1993 when she started her career. I have followed her from her first studio to her current location on 5th Ave. Several of her clients were referred by me. M'Lou & Joshua make a fantastic team. Joshua does my color, and then M'Lou cuts and styles my hair. I've had numerous compliments about my color. Joshua is a genius with color. You cannot do any better than M’Lou & Joshua. They are both artists and also wonderful individuals. --Mary Ellen W. "

"I have been going to M'lou for over 10 years . She is the only stylist that has been able to give me the short hair cuts that I love. She has always Razor cut my hair which seems to work better on my fine hair. She also does fun hair color. My mom also goes to M'lou and loves her. Josh has done some of my friends hair and is also very good. He does a great faux hawk that the boys love. Kristen E "

"M'Lou is a fantastic stylist, and I will let no one else cut my hair! She is truly an artist - I get compliments on my hair all the time, and I'm just so happy to have found a stylist that understands my hair and knows how to help me achieve the looks I'm going after. I have thick, curly hair, and I spent years going to stylists that didn't know how to cut it to its full potential. M'Lou is both extremely skillful and great listener - she will cut your hair beautifully, the way you want it. She's incredibly versatile as well - I started going to M'Lou because she cuts my mom's hair, which is completely different from mine. But M'Lou makes both of us look great!"
-Cristina B.
"A few years ago, I decided to get a wax and ended up with an appointment with M’Lou. I was complaining to her about my existing hairdresser and haircut. She offered to cut my hair and it looked WONDERFUL! I have been seeing her ever since and I always LOVE what she does with my hair. I look and feel stylish and consistently get compliments. You are in good hands with M’Lou! "
-Julie K.
"I wanted a change for spring. I knew I wanted to bleach my hair blonde, but I had a tricky shade in mind. Well, the color came out just perfect and my hair feels wonderful! I've been getting so many compliments! I've been going to M'lou for years, and now that Josh is styling he's been cutting my hair as well. They are just the best! I get compliments on my hair almost everyday!"
