Hello, my name is Abby Kennedy and I'm a total creative in all facets of my life. I bring over 22 years experience as a stylist to the salon community at Salon Lofts Hyde Park.  I have been at salon lofts for over 7 years now and I love where I work! 

My goal as a stylist is to give each and every one of my clients one on one attention, and give you the best service I possibly can.  I believe each and every customer should feel special, appreciated, and have fun in my chair.  That you should love your hair and not be afraid to contact me with questions, should you desire or need something more after you leave my chair.  You are my walking advertisement, and I appreciate each and every one of you! 

I am continuously training, for in my career, there is always something new to learn.  

My past training and experiences include, but are not limited to:

Inclusion in Bumble and Bumble's Top 20 Educators list (three years in a row)

Salon educator, motivator, and assistant/stylist trainer for many years at Pump Salon

Advanced color and cutting classes, runway shows and advertising photo shoots.  

As part of the education process, I  extensively trained the staff at Pump in product knowledge and usage. Other training classes were focused on styling, airforming, formal updo, color technique/ formulation and technical cutting with both razor and scissors. I believe it is extremely important for my clients (in addition to other stylists) to understand the benefits and usage of the products they are buying.

My eye for color is sharp and I've had some great education (extreme color formulating classes, foundation of color, thinking "outside the box," "breaking the rules," and color correction formulation) over the years. Color is something that has come naturally to me from day one. 

Other experiences over my 22 year career included studying the evolution of the famous "bob" hair cut. For one year I reaserched and recreated almost an entire century of this famous cut (from the first bob in 1912 to the current day version of this amazing style). If you have a bob or have been thinking of getting one, I suggest you come see me! After 22 years behind the chair I have seen and cut almost every style you can imagine,  styles change but the foundation of hair cutting stays the same.  Bayalage is the latest trend in coloring right now,  but foil highlighting is still one of my most popular requested color services.  You don’t have to be trending to look and feel your best.  I recommend doing what is best for your hair type not what is the most popular on Instagram or tictock.  Not everyone looks good with dark shadow roots or platinum blonde,  be yourself and love who you are and that’s what will make you happy and beautiful!

Abby is the best stylist I have ever used. I have gone to others and always come back. I have never found anyone who can "swing" a bob the way she can. Abby is great at teaching me how to maintain my awesome style and how to make it look the way she does. She is amazing at color and always keeps me stylish and polished. Book with Abby and you wont be disappointed. -Tammy

Abby has been my hair dresser for seven years. Very creative, but listening your needs. Up to date with styles and colors, but great with classics too. Best compliment to Abby - people always ask where do I get my hair done :)

Abby is honestly the best stylist I have EVER used. Her color work is fabulous and she is a true artist (with scissors and in everything she does!). My hair is difficult to say the least and she manages it with ease.

I've been getting my highlights and cut from Abby since 2002 and I have never been disappointed. She has a gift for creativity but can also put a twist on timeless, classic looks. If I'm looking for a blow out for a night out with the girls or a flawless color and cut, she always delivers full fold! Book with her...but don't take my appointment spot. Lol

I love Abby and her studio at Salon Lofts. I walk in and feel confident that I will be able to sit back, relax and leave feeling fabulous. Abby works magic with my curly hair. I love the cut and color every single time. She also has a great waxer across the hall.

I lucked out finding Abby at Hyde Park. Was visiting a very sick friend from out of town & needed my hair done. Abby is a pro, yet very low key & creative. I felt secure during our consultion and got color, highlights, gloss & cut. I would highly recommend her! Molly
