Kate is by far THE MOST exceptional stylist I have ever worked with! I have naturally curly hair that I prefer to straighten, and before finding Kait I had never left a salon feeling good about how they styled my hair. I could never leave and go about my day. I always had to return home to re-style it myself. I have tried more salons and stylists than I can count, but I am so thankful to say that the search is OVER. As long as Kait is doing hair in the Raleigh area she'll have my business. Shoot, who am I kidding....I'd drive all the hours for her to still do my hair - that chick is a rare bird. She gives an excellent scalp massage each time she washes my hair, and to top it all off she has such a fun and bubbly personality. I'd like to think of her as my human, red haired spirit animal. If you're looking to make a change, even if you're not, I urge you to pay Kait a visit. You won't regret it.

I’ve been going to Kait for about 4 years now and she always does a flawless job. She know what looks good and what will work with my needs. You will leave looking better than you imagined every time. Highly recommend!

Kait is THE BEST, sweet, honest, and always goes above and beyond to make my time with her special…never mind how AMAZING she makes my hair look ! I have always had a tough time finding exceptional hairstylists who truly know how to color and style my hair- I have very thick and curly hair, so needles to say its always been a struggle! I was such a blessing to finally find such passionate and talented stylist! I recently had a Brazilian Blowout treatment, and let me tell you - it was life changing! My hair has become so soft, shiny,WAY less frizzy, and really manageable. Styling my hair is usually a nightmare and takes a ridiculous amount of product(which gets $$$)- this treatment has cut my style time down from over an hour to 15-25 mins (wet to completely dry and flat ironed!). I am finding that my products are lasting longer and my locks always look amazing! It has been three weeks since I had my treatment done and I STILL get compliments daily. This treatment is as total game changer, and has totally boosted my self esteem-I just love showing off my locks now. HIGHLY recommend! -Amy S.

Kait is so good, easy to talk to, does a great job, and listens. So many times I’ve had my hair cut by someone who made me feel like they knew my hair better than I did, but not Kait. She gives her opinions and expertise but at the end of the day she listens and reinforces that I know my hair the best. Her last 3 cuts have been exceptional and I still get compliments on my cut even though I am way over due for a new one. She does a REALLY great job and so far even though my hair is growing, she cut it in such a way that it’s growing out WELL!

I always have the best time getting my hair done by Kait! She is so easy to talk to, and really gives great advice. She walks you along the process of what she's doing with your hair instead of just doing it and making you fend for yourself. She has taught me so much on top of making me feel very confident in myself with my beautiful hair.
