Katelyn is the BEST with my blonde hair!! She understands what I want, and is realistic with what color blonde works best for me! I also have really thick hair, and she always cuts it just right and removes the bulk I don’t want. Highly, highly recommend!
Kelly S.
Hands down, the BEST! I went to school at OU and had a stylist there that I would drive from Columbus to get my hair done for YEARS AND YEARS. Since having a baby, well, that didn’t work out anymore. One of my good friends recommended her and she has been a god send! Katie is so sweet and hilarious! I always look forward to going to see her! She makes me feel like “one of the girls” and I never feel rushed. She takes her time and does things right! I’ve showed her many pictures of what I want, and she nails it! She also will alter it to me, and what would look good on me! She is very flexible and willing to work with you! I text her randomly with questions regarding hair, products, really anything and she always responds back! Schedule your appointment TODAY! She fills up quick, but WELL worth the wait! I promise she won’t disappoint! ❤️
Emily D.
Katelyn is seriously the best! I always leave feeling in love with my hair! I have never been one bit disappointed! Not only that, but my hair doesn’t fade in a few lasts! She does amazing work! On top of that, I always look forward to our conversations! She is everything you want in a hair stylist!
Samantha S.
Katelyn is hands down the sweetest, most genuine person you will ever meet, plus its a benefit I can talk to her about ANYTHING. Getting my hair done by her means I can just relax and enjoy my time. I have never felt rushed, I always feel like I am valued and just one of the girls. I will continue to follow Katelyn forever, because lets face it, she's just that freaking fabulous!
Brienna W.
Katelyn always keeps me looking professional. And as a health care professional, appearance is something that patients can judge us on. Flexible hours and scheduling are also a plus. -Dewayne P.
Dewayne P.
Katelyn is amazing!! After being in Ohio for 4 years, I have finally found MY hairstylist and it was definitely worth the wait! I showed her pictures of what I wanted and she made it even better than the photo I showed her! I am already looking forward to my next appointment! :)
Krista L.
Katelyn is the best! I recently moved back to Columbus after spending two years in Nashville where I had the same stylist for the majority of that time. I tried two other stylists before finding Katelyn and she’s the only one who has been able to achieve the blonde tone I’ve been longing for. I’m so happy to have found her!
Emily S.
I had never colored my hair before and had heard horror stories of bad colorist experiences when I first came to Katelyn. I told her what I wanted, She took the reigns and I loved the results! There have been several times when I wasn’t able to get an open appointment and she worked with me to add one. I also really respect that she doesn’t try to upsell me stuff I don’t need. If I book a cut and color and she doesn’t think I need the cut, she’ll tell me. Her customer service really is above and beyond —
Maggie W.
Katelyn did a fabulous job! I showed her a picture of a cut I liked and she without hesitation made it happen. She also gave me advice on products to use! I will definitely be returning!
Gabrielle B.
I have been going to Katelyn for almost a year now and I have NEVER been disappointed! She always knows what I want and exceeds my expectations every time! I will never trust anyone with my hair cut and color as much as I trust Katelyn!
Abbey R.
Katie is seriously the best! Whenever I bring in a picture, she matches it perfectly or gives me advice on what would look better for me. After moving from San Francisco, it took me almost 2 years to find someone like Katie. I cannot recommend her enough.
Allison T.
Katelyn does amazing work! I clicked through her profile and knew she would be able to do exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a shadow roots and someone to get rid of the brassy parts of my hair. She also runs awesome promotions like “testimonial coupon” every time I come in. I booked an appointment with her 3 weeks out because she’s so amazing and fills up so quickly. She is worth the wait but got me in earlier on a cancelation. She is FABULOUS and does awesome work! Stop clicking through profiles on salon loft and go with the best.
Katelyn M.
I moved to Columbus about two years ago and would drive back to NE Ohio to get my hair done. I struggled finding a new hairdresser that I was confident in dying my blonde hair, until Katelyn. I am absolutely obsessed with my hair and all the compliments I keep receiving. Katelyn was also super nice and I look forward to coming back to her!
Kayla L.
I love seeing Katelyn!! She is amazing at what she does and always makes me feel beautiful!!
Tara M.
Katelyn is a godsend!! I have been bottle dying my hair red for the past year and I needed a change so she gave me the courage to go blonde! She walked me through exactly what she was going to do to take care of my hair and what products to use to make sure my color was bright and vibrant. My hair is so much healthier and looks LONGER now after my haircut!! I am so glad to have found my new favorite hairstylist in Columbus.
April A.
Truly a blonde queen. I never feel like she is rushing to get my hair done. She takes her time and really listens to what you want. It’s hard to find a stylist that can master blonde color consistently but she does it!
Sydney K.
I have been with Katelyn for over a year and she has never disappointed when it comes to my hair. Her salon is always clean, she is always on time (even early) and is a joy to sit and watch work as she paints my hair. I will continue to come back and recommend her to anyone I know.
Alaura M.
Katelyn helped me fix a bad balayage gone wrong and got me back to my natural brunette color without fail! Katelyn is great and I am very happy I went to her!!
Taylor G.
Hands down the best. Is not only she is my beautician but also my therapist ;) Prefect cut every time!
Eli F.
She is hands down the best stylist and colorist I’ve ever had! It’s so hard to find someone that understands exactly what you want and delivers the best service! She excellent at blonde and balayage!!
Molly L.
Katelyn does a wonderful job giving me the professional look I need for my occupation. She is flexible with scheduling and understanding of those with a busy schedule. I have never had a bad experience with her in my two plus years of her as my stylist. --Dewayne P.
Dewayne P.
Katelyn is AMAZING! One of the things no one mentions about the stresses of moving is how difficult it is to find a stylist you love in your new city. I bounced around to several different people until I found Katelyn. She’s prompt, flexible, talented, and most of all—she really cares about YOU! She’s also fun and easy to talk to, which never hurts when you’re stuck in a salon chair for a while. ;-)
Janet M.
Katelyn. Is. A. Rockstar. I've been going to Katelyn for a couple of years and she always nails it with the color. I reccomend everyone I know to her, especially blondes because she's amazing with blonde hair. She also listens and takes direction while still adding her professional opinion.
Lauren A.
Katelyn is the best!! She is the first hairstylist I have had since living in Columbus and I couldn’t imagine going to anyone else. She always does exactly what I ask of her and makes it look even better than I imagined! If you want a hairstylist that you can trust and feel comfortable with, book with Katelyn!
Lexi C.
Katelyn is absolutely amazing all the way around! We had to reschedule because of weather and she was very professional also LOVE my hair!! She is very knowledgeable about what she does and the products she uses, she is very easy to talk to while getting your hair done. I can finally say I will be sticking with a hair stylist!
Lindsay L.
Absolutely loved the cut Katelyn gave me. She’s super nice and gives great hair advice. Will definitely continue going to her for my future hair services
Shauna J.
I just moved from DC, where getting my hair done was a fortune and I was often frustrated by how little my hair stylist would listen to the shade and tone I wanted my hair. With Katelyn, she listens and does an amazing job! She ensures her customers are happy with the outcome and she provides advice on products and tips for all things beauty-related. So happy to have found Katelyn!
Brie S.
Katelyn does a great job! She listens carefully to what the customer wants and tries very hard to satisfy their expectations! She is friendly, and her prices are very reasonable. I will allow no one else to cut or color my hair!
Eric B.
I recently booked my second appointment with Katelyn. I am a brunette (with a LOT of hair) going lighter & shorter. She was so helpful and confident in taking on the task! Katelyn also filled me in on what products to use in helping with my process. Apparently blondes have more fun & I am looking forward to finding out :) ~Lauren L
Lauren L.
Absolutely love Katelyn! She is the only person I trust to touch my hair! Always on time, up to date on trends polite and kind. Highly recommend!
Emily M.
I just booked my second appointment with Katelyn for balayage and cut! Not only is she personable and caring, she has the gift of making your vision come to life! She's just wonderful!
Brooke J.
Had such a great experience with Katelyn, she did an amazing balayage for me and was able to get my dark hair to a beautiful caramel the first time without compromising the health of my hair. So talented!
Ann Y.
I'm so glad I went to Katelyn at a friend's recommendation! She is on time, efficient, and always does a great job with my hair (not to mention, she's also super nice!).
Jessica K.
I have seen Katelyn numerous times now and see never disappoints. She is always willing to do her best to give me what I am looking for. Katelyn is one of the best I have see;throughout years of having my hair done.
Alaura M.
Katelyn is awesome! I'm so picky when it comes to my hair and its always so hard to find someone you trust. So happy that I found Katelyn. She is awesome and does an amazing job! Would definitely recommend her!
Danielle R.
For years I have tried highlighting my darker brunette hair. I have paler skin with light eyes. Most every time I tried to lighten my hair just a little, it turned orange. I met a girl who had similar hair color as mine with the perfect highlights. I asked her where she went which is how I ended up with Kaitie. She definitely did not disappoint. She took so much time and care. She understood what I wanted and got me there. Color is definitely a skill she owns. I love my color and as I continue to evolve my style I know I'll stick with her!
Nikki G.
About to book my second appointment with Katelyn! Moved back to the area and was in need of a new go to stylist and so happy I stumbled upon her! She is so helpful and full of advice and confidence. Even mentioned I could always contact her with any questions or color ideas. She’s super sweet and listens to what you want. Highly reccomend!
Katie S.
Katelyn is the best!! After struggling to find a new hairstylist once I moved, I finally found Katelyn and won't go to anyone else! Katelyn is extremely talented and truly understands what her customers want. Not only is she skilled in what she does, but she is super personable and makes every visit enjoyable. I absolutely love the color and cut she gave me and would recommend everyone go to her!
Kelly L.
I'm usually pretty picky with how I like my hair done, but Katelyn was perfect. She listened to what I wanted and defintely delivered. She's great with color and so patient (I have a lot of hair). I'll definitely be back!
Lauren A.
I moved to Columbus (and away from my former hairdresser) about 6 months ago and then took a leap and let someone new cut my hair. Katelyn was super nice and made me feel really comfortable. She does an awesome job with layers (my hair is really thick). She also cuts one of my friends hair and she loves her too! I highly recommend seeing Katelyn
Laura I.
Katelyn did an amazing job on my hair! She throughly explained the process of my journey going lighter and was very helpful with keeping my locks healthy. I can't wait for our next session!
Whitney S.
Katelyn was wonderful! She was quick to respond and worked with meto get me in within that same week. I was a new client and the cut was exactly what I wanted. Katelyn was welcoming and great to chat with. -Christine M-B
Christine M.
It’s so hard finding a hair stylist like Katelyn. She does amazing work, an always gets my hair together, I’m looking forward to my next appointment!!!!!! ❤️
Melinda D.
Let me start off by saying, Katelyn is Amazing!! She is very friendly, and makes you feel so welcome in her loft. When I moved to Columbus, I couldn't find a stylist that knew my style, and what I was going for......but then Katelyn came along! Her knowledge and skill level in the hair industry blows me away!! She knew exactly what color and style to use on my hair- just by looking at my eye color and gave shape. This really stood out to me, because I never know what to do with my hair. As soon as I sat in her chair, I was so confident that I was in good hands. I just scheduled my second appointment with her, and I know there will be many more. I finally found my forever stylist!!!! :)
Jessica C.
I loved my hair cut and color with Katelyn! Not only does it look great, it was done so quickly. She took time to explain products to me, was thorough and was creative on the cut! Can't wait to book my next appt!
Colleen L.
Katie is absolutely amazing! I had a really bad experience when I was in high school and for the past 10 years I've hated to get my haircut. After letting Katie cut my hair, I love going to get it cut and trying new colors/styles, etc. thanks Katie!
Alexandra W.
Katelyn is absolutely wonderful! I have been in Columbus for almost 6 years and I had yet to find a hair stylist in Columbus that I loved until I went to Katelyn. She really listens to what you want, takes her time and goes the extra mile to make sure you love your hair. I would trust her with any major hair change - I can't recommend her enough!
Allie K.
I’ve struggled to find a stylist with the patience and attention to detail my hair requires (extremely dense with multiple textures). Other stylists seem to rush through coloring and I always went home dissatisfied. I started doing my own hair at home and royally screwed it up, so I went to Katie for help. I’m happy to say I’ve never had such a great experience at a salon! Katie is so thorough and precise and somehow knew exactly what I wanted/needed, despite my somewhat vague description. She is very passionate about hair and it definitely shows in her work. I’m so thankful I found her!
Lindsay P.
Katelyn was able to create exactly what I wanted! I was very pleased with the results. She was professional and on time and most importantly did a great job! I will certainly be back soon. Thanks Katelyn!
Autumn R.
Katelyn is not only talented, she is also very personable. I love her ability to make my hair beautiful and make me smile at the same time! I always look forward to the times I get to spend with her. If you are looking for the best all around service you can receive, Katelyn is your girl.
Lindsay S.
She's great. Always a great cut. I went from once a month to twice a month b/c I'm addicted to my haircut now and dont want it to grow out. Like the Christmas Story, A++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Eli F.
Best girl to trust with your hair
Danielle M.
I love Katelyn, she is my go-to-girl for all things hair related! She has been doing my hair for years, and she's the only one I trust to get it right every time. When I sit in her chair I'm confident that I will leave looking and feeling great. She's always been willing to try new things with my hair and is constantly researching new products and styles to make sure I leave with what I want. I get compliments on my hair every where I go, and I swear up and down to everyone that going to Katelyn has been one of the best choices I've made. She is a true professional dedicated to her craft and will do everything she possibly can to give you exactly what you want.
Kalee B.
I can always trust Katie with whatever she wants to do with my hair! She does such an amazing job and I know I can always go to her for advice about taking care of my hair while also keeping up with trendy hairstyles. One thing I really like about Katie is that she really listens to what I want and takes the time to make things perfect. I have always left with beautiful hair after she has done it and she always makes me feel so special! :)
