As a second generation hairstylist, I have been around the industry my whole life. The thought of being a hairstylist, honestly, never crossed my mind as a career choice. I have always had a love for the stage and performance, so my heart led me to pursuing a career in the arts. After obtaining my degrees in Musical Theatre (BFA), Vocal/Choral Music (BA), and Dance- Minor from Lindenwood University, I fulfilled a long-time dream of working in Disney World through an internship in the college program. As an avid Disney Lover, this experience showed me how important it is to have dreams and goals, and that following them sometimes pulls you in a different direction. I realized that I am truly a homebody and moved back home at the completion of my program. Now I spend my days with my husband, Alex, and our two pups, Penne and Scout, watching the Hallmark Channel and HGTV, drinking coffee, and planning our future. I also work locally acting in commercials, styling other actors in commercial and print ads, and teach Acting and Stage Makeup in the summer at COCA. I have always had an entrepreneurial mindset, so it wasn’t a surprise that I became my own boss after only 1 year in the industry. I left the salon I was at, opened up my space at Salon Lofts, and never looked back. I pride myself on running a cruelty-free and green salon. Along with teaching classes as an IdHair Educator, I also regularly attend classes to further expand my knowledge on creating the perfect guest experience, great customer service and sharpen my skills as an artist. I love the personal connection I can make with my clients during every appointment.  I specialize in great "lived-in" color because I love the more natural look that allows you more longevity and low maintenance in your color and cut. I also truly enjoy being a hair and makeup artist for weddings.  I complete about 30+ weddings every year, which is such an honor and so much fun! If you are ready to look your best, learn how to style your new look and live your best life, book online.  It is an easy to follow booking system and will help you find the perfect appointment time to fit your schedule. 

See you soon!

I used Katie for hair and make up for my wedding day, and there are not enough amazing words in the dictionary to describe her! I originally thought I wanted my hair up for the big day and she was so incredible working with me on my trial for that. However, shortly before my wedding I began to struggle with psorasis all over my body. My dress was completely open back and I was not sure it was going to go away so I made the decision to wear my hair down. BEST DECISION EVER. Katie is an angel, I had not cut my hair in a year and a half and it was so dead but somehow she made it look so alive that people were not even sure it was my real hair. It was so long and beautiful and gave the princess vibes I wanted. As for my make up, It was absolutely stunning and stayed so well that I had to literally scrub it off my face at the end of night. You will NOT regret booking her! I would recommend her over and over again.

Katie is an amazing individual and stylist!! I first met Katie through my bridal hair and makeup trial in 2017 and I have been going to her ever since! She made me feel amazing on my wedding day and beyond. She had helped me bring my hair color back to life. Katie always listens and then takes what I’m thinking and transforms it exactly what I want. I could not recommend anyone better!

I had Katie style my hair and makeup for both my engagement photo shoot and for my wedding day! Planning a wedding is super stressful so it was so great to sit back and relax and not have to worry about a thing knowing I was in good hands. I couldn't have been happier with the results and relieved a TON of compliments on both looks plus the airbrush makeup showed up beautifully in my photos. Katie takes the time to really listen to the look you want and makes you feel at ease, I would definitely recommend her!-Lauren M.

Wow! I chose Katie just by looking at my choices from this salon. All I can say is, "YES!" I am so glad I did. My color is just what I wanted. The cut? I love how it looks! She was very attentive to what I wanted. Not only is she a great stylist, but I had so much fun talking to her! I'll be back for sure!

I struggled for months to find a hair and makeup artist. I AM SO HAPPY I chose Katie to do a trial for my wedding day 4 days before my wedding. The day of the wedding her work was perfect. My makeup lasted from 1045am to 245am! Katie, I cannot thank you enough for your beautiful work, your kindness, all the comfort you gave me!!! Can't wait to work with you again and send all the ladies in my life your way!

I hired Katie to do my hair and makeup for my wedding in June. Everything about working with Katie was professional, easy, and overall fantastic! I don't wear a lot of makeup, so was nervous about having my makeup done for such a big day. I'm so glad I put my faith in Katie; she understood that I wanted a subtle, natural look and she nailed it. I also could not have been happier with my hair; we did a trial and when I asked for her to alter it slightly for the wedding, she did it exactly how I wanted it! I couldn't have been happier and received so many compliments on it. I routinely return to Katie for haircuts now, too. If you need a professional stylist, seriously look no further.
