Hi and thank you for your interest! My name is Leah Taylor and I am a Designer Stylist and Redken Colorist. I enjoy spending my days working my magic making hair and my guests feel beautiful in Loft 8 (LTdesigns, L.L.C.). I began my cosmetology career in early 2015 after graduating Pivot Point's international teaching program at Capri Beauty College in New Lenox, IL. After graduation I spent 4 years working in various positions at Hair Cuttery, studying Redken Laquers (Low Ammonia, 100% Grey Coverage), Redken Brews Color Camo (Grey Coverage for Men), Shades EQ (Glossing Conditioning Hair Color), and Redken's PH Bonder (Bond Multiplier). I specialize in modern and traditional grey coverage, Balayage, as well as blonde, brunette and red hair color. Lastly- my favorite, facial waxing. (Staying in touch is great unless you're eyebrows!!!) I love being an artist and keeping up with the latest techniques / styles. I am BOB certified in both Balayage Advanced and Blondes Advanced classes using open air and foiling hair painting techniques! Schedule a free consultation for a customized color / cut!

I have only found two people in my 40+ years who could cut and style my hair in a way that fits my needs, and positions me for success with running my company. My previous stylist live in a different state, once I moved to Florida I was back to trial and error with many different stylists, walk in heir cut salons, and referrals. I was extremely lucky to find Leah a few years ago. Every hair cut and beard trimming if I request it, is exactly what I need. Often I will go in and let Leah know I am heading to a conference and need to look on point. She takes care of the rest, providing me with the high level professional look that I require. Thanks Leah! I can't thank you enough!! Seth S.

After trying many different hair stylists/colorists who chopped my hair and/or didn’t listen to what I wanted, I met Leah! Such a sweet person overall, and she explains the what’s and why’s of your cut/color and really listens to what you want. She is the only one I trust with my hair and will continue to go to even when I move to another county! Highly recommend her!!

It’s so hard to find someone to trust to do your hair! From a Pinterest picture to a suggestion from a friend, anything I ask her for - she makes it happen! I absolutely love having Leah do my hair and always leave happy with my new look.

I've had bad anxiety for most of my life. One of the biggest set offs for me is hair. Aside from a childhood family friend and a couple people trimming the ends in college, I had never gone in anywhere to get my hair professionally cut. It was too uncomfortable and induced severe panic attacks. Until now. Leah is amazing! She makes sure I am comfortable before, during, and after every appointment and it always turns out perfect!! She even taught me how to maintain and style my hair in between cuts (which I was admittedly completely clueless about before). I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a one of a kind hairstylist who genuinely cares about her clients. Thank you so so much for not just taming the mane, but for helping me overcome a major anxiety obstacle. It means the world to me! A++++ service and very reasonable pricing to boot :D
