Kara is an amazing stylist! I'm a guy, and I've cut my own hair for the past 15 years, and I thought it looked ok, but one cut from Kara and I discovered that there's no substitute for professional hair care. Her knowledge and expertise and the few simple tweaks she did made a noticeable difference! I got several compliments on my hair following her cut. She was worth the 6 hour drive! :)

I was visiting Columbus for a day and desperately need need my hair cut, so I took a chance and arranged an appointment with Kara with out any recommendations. I needn't have worried, she did a wonderful cut and spent time making sure it was correct and what I'd wanted. She is super friendly and easy to talk to, I have and will recommend her highly!!!

I honestly cannot say enough about Kara's talent. I went to her with over processed hair, awful highlights, and a bad cut, and in one sitting, she was able to fix me right up. Each time I visit, she takes the time to educate me about how to care for my hair and recommends the best products for me.

I have found my new stylist!! I am thrilled with my salon experience with Kara!! She is the first stylist who has been able to give me the beautiful shade of platinum blonde that I've been trying to get for years, while also keeping my hair long and healthy! I have been smiling nonstop since my appointment! She is also super sweet and a lot of fun to talk to, and I look forward to going back in to see her many times in the future!! I highly recommend her!!!

I absolutely love my new hair stylist Kara! She is awesome!! I was referred to her by a friend and was amazed by her talent. I had overprocessed highlights and my cut was horrible. She knew exactly how to fix it and gave me highlights that were more natural looking. She gave me a new cut that added tons of body and volume to my fine hair. She is a so sweet, nice and funny! It was my first time meeting her and I felt like we have been friends for years when I left. I will definitely continue seeing her and will refer all my friends and family to her as well!!! :)

Kara was our wedding hair stylist for a party of 6 bridesmaids, bride, and mother of bride. We not only loved our hair but we loved Kara and her personality- the perfect combination for wedding day gitters and fun! We love her! --Ann

I randomly found Kara while visiting a friend in Columbus. She is knowledgable, friendly, and truly an artist/perfectionist when it comes to highlights and hair styling. Since I'm not from Columbus, I have tried getting my hair done closer to home several times and each time I end up going back to Kara for SOS appointments. :) I think I've finally learned my lesson... The 2 hour drive is worth it. I'm actually saving time and stress because every time I go somewhere else, I end up returning for 'touch ups' but with Kara it's always done right the first time. Even when she's saving your hair from a disaster created by another stylist.

I have been going to Kara for a while and I love her work. When I came to her she fixed my bad hair cut and I just can't say enough how great her work is and how great of a personality she has. Her place is convenient to me, clean, and the prices are reasonable. Highly recommended stylist!!
