A Cut Above

About April Altergott

From the time April was seven years old she had a heart of a hair stylist. Watching her Aunt get cap highlights for 3 hours was as exciting as a trip to Disneyland. All these years later her love for hair styling is just as vibrant as it was back then! April just celebrated her One Year Anniversary in January of 2019 at Sola. She enjoyed a successful first year and plans on many more. Before opening her business A Cut Above she spent the 13 plus years of her career working for Hair Cuttery in Niles. While there she wore many different hats from Business Leadership to Trainer most importantly, Stylist. She is now ready to put one hundred percent of her focus to servicing her loyal guests while acquiring new ones. April is flexible and dedicated to meeting her guests needs. No greater satisfaction comes to her then from seeing a happy guest return to her chair time and again.


Count on April! I can always count on April to make me feel pretty again! She is so patient and takes the time to really listen to her clients. April will always go the extra mile to make sure I am super happy with my hair. Now all of my family and friends go to her as well!!

Toni Ivanov,

I've always been very particular about my hair, but kept searching for the hairdresser who would be "The One". I never thought that another stylist's inept haircut would set me on the path to April.....master stylist, artist, friend, "The One". April has been cutting, coloring and styling my hair for more than 9 years. She talks to me, asks questions about my style ideas and strives to create the look I envision. I walk out of the salon feeling like a million bucks and hoping I can always look and feel as amazing as April makes me feel. She values me as a person and truly cares about me. If you are looking for a stylist who is passionate about hair, look no further than April. She is, without a doubt, "The One" for you.

Most AMAZING Hairstylist EVER! You will immediately feel that you are in safe and professional hands. April’s impeccable approach to her business and clients is obvious. Her experience and background are a rarity today. She is a Master hair stylist and is a conduit between your wishes and your new style. She listens to the thoughts you have and helps to refine those ideas with you, and then brings them to life with her superior styling skills! April is generous with her time and has a great rapport with all. I always leave the salon feeling refreshed, renewed and gorgeous. A beautiful and relaxing salon with a philosophy of care and excellence! I feel extremely fortunate to have discovered this young and extremely talented woman, who has built an impressive business of her own. A five-star salon which offers excellent service, at a reasonable price!
