I was an Aveda stylist for 18 years, but this is my time to start a new path here at Salon Lofts in Chevy Chase - The Collection.  Along with all the Aveda classes I have taken over the years, I am also trained in men's cutting by The Grooming Collective.  I specialize in color, highlighting, balayage, corrective color, and men and women's cutting.  I use Lasio Keratin treatments for my straightening clients.  

As always, healthy hair is beautiful hair!  I use Davines, Evo, Malibu C and WellaPlex to help keep my clients' hair strong and lovely.  

I ask that all Color Correction appointments to either call or text me directly so I can set up the time necessary.  Also, all Keratin services have a 24-hour cancellation policy.  

**Please note that the entrance to Salon Lofts in Chevy Chase - The Collection is at the back of the building, next to Tiffany & Co., on the second floor.  The parking lot is directly behind the building and very affordable.  Salon Lofts also validates parking up to 2 hours.**

I have followed Katie over from Aveda and she is truly the best. I have had Katie as my colorist and stylist for over 6 years and I would not trust anyone else with my hair. I have fine hair, lots of it, and I do full highlights every 8 weeks, religiously. Katie always makes sure to address any questions/concerns I might have. My hair always looks healthy and never burn out, dry, or -- in the case of blondes -- orange and straw like. Katie is wonderful, professional and actually cares about you and your hair!

I have been seeing Katie since 2010 at Aveda. In 2010, I first saw her after she rescued my hair from a botched highlight job at another salon. She is the only one in the area that I would trust to do my hair. I have very fine hair and she always knows exactly what to do with it. We have tried quite a few hairstyles over the years. She has always done an amazing job with my highlights and with my cut. She has also done a fantastic job when I switched over to single process color. She always listens to me, but I also trust her advice. I have gone in before and just asked... What she would do with my hair today? I trust her implicitly.

I am a busy working mom with children under the age of 5 and having an amazing, stylish and uplifting person like Katie doing my hair is literally THE BEST TIME I CAN GIVE MYSELF and I would run not walk to book time- its time for you and I can guarantee you will leave a happier person with great hair too!

Katie has been doing my hair for over 20 years and she does amazing work every time. Her blonde highlights are the most natural looking and grow out the best of any Stylist I have ever worked with. Katie will also be honest about what is possible and what isn't and how to achieve the look you want within parameters that will still maintain the health of your hair. She is a consummate professional and often goes above and beyond in all aspects of her work. Book a consult with Katie and you will not be disappointed!

When I moved here I didn’t think anyone would be able to allow my curls to be themselves, and accommodate this swamp-like heat and humidity! I was so afraid of getting the “DC straightened haircut.” Katie saw me through my first summer, my first color process and gave my son his first haircut without tears. Between my auburn crazy curls, and my red-headed, fine-, but thick-haired crazy-fearful son, she tamed it all! She is truly a miracle worker.

I have been coming to Katie for nine years now - ever since I was new to the area and got a bad cut that needed fixing. She has helped me cut off all my hair, grow it all back, maintain it, and even with a color emergency. She knows how to work with many hair textures and types, and is always professional and personable. Highly recommend!
