**If you don't see a time that works for you, please text or call me and we'll find something that fits your schedule.** :)

I am a Master Stylist with over a decade of experience in creating magic and inspiring personal transformation behind the chair. I specialize in creative and dimensional color, including color-melting, gray coverage and blending, balayage, highlights, baby-lights, teasy-lights, foilayge and all-over color. I draw inspiration from the world around me and genuinely love making my clients feel good about themselves through helping them discover and enhance their natural beauty. It is an honor and privilege to be trusted to partner with my clients to help create their best selves. 

A Paul Mitchell The School-Cleveland graduate, I began my career heavily trained in Paul Mitchell products. As a Phase II Future Professional, I was given the opportunity to attend the Capers conference where I was able to train under some of the industry's best including Donald Scott, Lucie Doughty, Angus Mitchell, Robert Cromeans and Takashi Kitamura. Upon graduation, I worked at a small Paul Mitchell Focus Salon in Canton. As my clientele, education, drive and passion grew, I moved my career to Akron where I spent five and a half years as a loft owner in the Merriman-Valley. I relocated to the Salon Lofts-West Akron location in March 2019.

I know it can be difficult and even fear-inducing to find a new-stylist. Consultations are free and recommended! We can use this time to discuss your hair care routine, budget, goals and lifestyle to determine what style, products and service(s) would be best for you!

If you need to book a service outside of listed loft hours, please shoot me a text or email, and I will do my best to be flexible and accommodating to your schedule! 

*TEXT & EMAIL ARE THE EASIEST WAY TO REACH ME! If you call, and I am unable to answer, please leave a voicemail, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. 

I look forward to meeting you!

Katy was so helpful and kind during my daughter's first appointment. The cut, color, and style were amazing! My 16 year old daughter was very excited with the outcome! Katy exceeded our expectations!

Katy is amazing and I recommend her to anyone looking for a fresh look. I have very curly hair and she is able to keep my curls healthy and my color on point! She is friendly and professional and she will make sure you leave with a smile on your face.

Katy did an amazing job on my hair. This is the first time I went to her and the first time in a year I let someone touch my hair since my fallout with another salon. She listened to what I wanted and did it beautifully. She's the only stylist to give me layers all over and not just long layers like everyone else seems to want to do on me when I ask for layers. I found my new hair home in Katy and can't wait to see where she can take me on my hair journey.

Katy has been doing my hair for almost a decade. She has helped me not only look good but change my hair care routine and products. I have been gaining a lot of gray hair over the last couple of years but she is a master at covering them. Katy works with you to make sure the style and color you want will match your face shape and skin tones. She is knowledgeable and talented at her craft all while providing a relaxing atmosphere. I have recommended Katy to anyone who is looking for a new stylist. She really is the best!
