Hi Guys,


I have been in the beauty industry since 2013, I am a Carolina girl who's uprooted and am now crushing goals and living out my big city dreams in Columbus, Ohio. I'm passionate about making others feel beautiful and taking them on a journey of transformation. I'm all about women empowering woman and I feel I can do it on a much more personal level when someone sits in my chair. 


As a graduate from Aveda Frederic's Institute, I have extensive knowledge in high end hair and skin care. Since graduating I have taken advanced training courses in product knowledge, cutting, and color. I love all things balayage, ombre and transformation. 


I'm excited to announce that I will be offering Natural Beaded Row extensions in November! These extensions are taking over the industry. If you are interested in learning how to apply for the highest quality extensions on the market, contact me directly! I'll be accepting new NBR clients at model pricing through the end of the year!


I have partnered up with Molly of 'Her Mind Matters'. At the core of this brand we believe that hair + makeup matters, but her mind matters more.  HMM Styling was created to bring women together.To create a safe haven, a community, and a movement.

After the first time getting my hair done by Dakota, I absolutely loved it! She did such an awesome job so when I wanted to make a drastic change, I trusted her to be the girl to do it. I've gotten SO many compliments on my new hairstyle! 10/10 would recommend going to see Dakota - she rocks. - Kally S.

I have never felt so satisfied leaving an appointment, the way I did when I went to see Dakota. From her first impressions, to how airy and clean her loft is, to how meticulous she is with everything she does. She wanted me to love my hair when I left, no matter how long it was going to take. I have never met a stylist that cared this much about the outcome of her work, and more importantly her clients. -Natalie

I’m actually a stylist and have been in the industry a decade. I’m very picky about who does my hair, and I can not say enough good things about Dakota and her skills! She’s so patient and listens & talented !!! Go see Dakota !!!! Let her make your day ♥️

Dakota has been doing my hair for probably 3 years now and I would never go anywhere else again! She always knows how to accommodate my ever changing style and does it so perfectly! Dakota saved me from my cheap salon, bad haircut ways and now I trust no one else to touch my precious locks! I don’t know anyone else that would willingly subject themselves to taking 6 hours, multiple times a year, to rebleach my horse thick hair. She’s the best!

I’m not an easy client. Breast cancer treatment has taken its toll. By your kind heart, soft hands, and a gift for bringing out the best in others...color and style have given me a whole new sparkle and I can’t wait to continue on this journey with you as my stylist I know I’m in good hands.

Have you ever left a salon so excited and loving your new hair cut only to realize once it’s washed that you have no idea how to recreate the look you loved so much? Not only did I get beautiful highlights and a great cut I liked but I left the salon knowing how and being able to create that same look I loved for myself day after day. Dakota did my hair a little over a month ago and I am still loving it!! I live over an hour away but it is so worth the drive/ride to walk out feeling so much better about yourself not only for the day but every day. Thank you Dakota!! That was my first time but most definately not my last time!!
