Hey clients!

I’m Sarah-Kathryn or SK as a lot of my friends like to call me. I’m from Washington, located in the Inner Banks of North Carolina. I have two children- a 9 year old girl and a 2 year old boy. After living in Dallas, TX for 4 years, my husband and I have decided to move back to his hometown of Raleigh. We couldn't stand to be away from family or the Carolina coast any longer!

I have been in the hair industry for 6 years and have developed a love for “painting” hair. My specialty is vivid and creative colors, as well as balayage, but also love to do anything else from men’s cuts to grey coverage color. 

Feel free to text me with questions or pictures of your desired color, cut or style. A picture of your hair starting point, as well as the most accurate and honest history of hair coloring services (professional or DIY) will be useful in determining the services needed to achieve your desired result. 

I am a Pulp Riot “Preferred” stylist and use the majority of their color, lightener and products. You can find me on their website on the Artist Locator page. Please check out my work on Instagram or Facebook @letmepaintyourhair 


CANCELLATION/NO SHOW POLICY- 24 hour notice is required to cancel an appointment. Last minute cancellations will have a fee of 25% of the services scheduled that must be payed at the time of the rescheduled appointment. No show fee is 50% of the original scheduled service and must be payed before a future appointment is scheduled.

I understand life happens, but I kindly ask you to respect my time as this is my livelihood. Giving enough notice will allow me to fill your time slot with someone on my cancellation list.

I’m lost without her! SK changed my hair life forever. She is amazing at everything. Her vivid colors are fun and always look gorgeous. Every time SK touched my hair I was blown away by her talent. Plus she’s a super cool gal which makes the time in the salon that much better!

Sarah-Kathryn is truly a talented artist. Every time I left her chair, I seriously felt like I had a piece of art to showcase - that just happened to be my hair. Her work with vibrants is truly out of this world. I get blonde highlights with additional vibrant color highlights. S-K has always given good advice on what colors work well together, and her excitement over the colors coming together is almost palpable. In addition to her color work, her cuts provide just the right shape and style. I always loved leaving her shop feeling just a little bit edgy and confident that my hair would receive many compliments from friends and strangers alike. -Leyna O

I was thrilled to hear that Sarah-Kathryn Knudson was heading back to North Carolina - even though it is still over two hours from my home. She is an amazing hairstylist ... an artist, each stage of the specific processes done with meticulous dedication and thorough detail. A relaxing appointment. Insightful eye and professional suggestions. When my schedule allows, it is SO worth the 2+ hour drive! Thrilled with the highlights, cut and styling!

Sarah-Kathryn brought this drab, sad mouse back to life with a vibrant, gorgeously placed blonde! I am so thankful for her to work me into her schedule! I am so glad to know her and have experienced her tremendous skill firsthand! Book an appointment with her - you won't be disappointed!

SK gave me the courage to cut off 16+ inches of hair and to embrace my inner vivid by painting my hair. Over the course of two years she helped me express myself with new cuts and amazing color. SK will always be my hair guru. -Erica (the blue/teal hair in the gallery)
