Hi! My name is Katie, and I've been with CR Salon since 2018.
In my mid 20's, I made a career change by entering the hair industry. I have a writing degree but craved a more creative outlet. Creativity comes on all shapes and forms - I took a chance by enrolling in cosmetology school and never looked back. Like many women, I've experienced insecurities about my looks over the years. I don't want any woman to feel that way, and I feel the happiest behind the chair when I can give my guest the means to feel beautiful and confident both inside and out. You can't put a price tag on that.
I love that every day I'm behind the chair is a new experience with different faces! Daily change keeps me focused and driven. This industry's trends are ever-changing, and it's so much fun to see what comes and goes, and what's here to stay.
I'm hyper-aware of how face shape and skin tone affect the cut and color my guests are looking for. If I feel like your vision won't be conducive to your lifestyle or your looks, I will work with you to create something that's both achievable and maintainable. I create my color formulations and tailor haircuts specifically for my guest - no two are ever the same.
In addition to being behind the chair, I write a blog for the salon. I keep my blog versatile by posting anything from current trends to hair do's and don'ts to the importance of haircuts.
When I am not at the salon, I am a homebody. I like to read, experiment in the kitchen and spend time with my husband. I use a lot of garden analogies in regards to hair, because I love to garden! In the spring I love to work in my raised beds which are reserved for herbs and vegetables. There's always something new to learn.
I'm interested in connecting with you as a person, not just as a hairstylist. When you sit with me and tell me your story, you are heard. Whether you're seeking a minor style change or total transformation, I'm well equipped to conquer any hair that comes my way! I'd love to meet you!

I spent a relaxing afternoon having my hair dyed and styled by Katie. I've been going to her for almost 2 years and never have left dissappointed! She has a knack for understanding what her clients are looking for and she remembers what you like. Katie makes you feel special on every visit because she remembers little things about you, even if it's months between visits. There are a million things that I like about getting my hair cut, dyed, or styled by her. If I could give her tn stars I would! I highly recommend visiting Katie at CR Salon!

I was recently searching around for a new salon/stylist and came across CR Salon. Not only did they make me feel incredibly comfortable, but their salon was amazing! Katie was my stylist and WOW! She was so kind and understanding. I am trying to blonder after years of dying my hair jet black and she broke down step by step th process we have to take in order to do that. She made feel so welcomed and did a great job on my hair! 10/10 would recommend Katie and CR Salon to everyone. CHECK THEM OUT!!
