About Kasi Sonnenberg

Hello! My name is Kasi and I have been a hairstylist for over 8 years now. I graduated cosmetology school in 2011 and received multiple awards at the district, and state levels during my cosmetology academic career.

After graduation I had the pleasure of working at multiple salons with stylists who have helped me to advance my craft. Most recently I was employed at a Salon for the last 6 years where I was mentored by the owner who was also an educator for the Italian color line I now carry called Milkshake.

I spent years advancing my career to a senior stylist level which led me to the decision to open my own studio space, Rustic Roots. I specialize in lightening services, color, cutting and texturizing, and smoothing treatments. I am Brazilian Blowout certified and also carry a certificate in Barbicide disinfection.

I pride myself on being a creative, compassionate, and hard working stylist, eager to meet the needs of my clients on a personal and professional level. In addition to my cosmetology career I also completed a bachelor of science in biology, concentrated in psychology which has given me a deep appreciation for the scientific and personal side of the hair industry.

I am grateful for my loyal clientele and excited to continue to grow in this field.


Kasi truly is one of the greatest, if not THE greatest when it comes to hair!! I’ve been going to Kasi for just over 3 years now, and my hair has never been healthier!! I love how she is able to combine and utilize her expertise, creativity, and knowledge of ~all things hair~ to make sure I always leave happy, refreshed & feeling good about myself!! I also like how she explains WHY she’s doing what she’s doing. I’ve never felt pressured, dismissed, or “not heard,” she truly understands what it means to meet clients where they are at and work together to achieve whatever look or hair goal they have in mind. Also- I am one of those clients who is super indecisive when it comes to color, since I like just about everything. I’ll usually show Kasi some photos on Pinterest of different colors/looks that I like, and without a doubt, my hair looks better than anything I could ever imagine!! Her salon is super clean, organized, and I personally love the size of the space. As someone living with multiple sclerosis who is also on one of the strongest medication available to help control novel disease progression, my immune system is crap (the meds kill immune system cells). In my opinion, I personally think now more than ever, seeing how certain corporations, businesses, etc., run & maintain their business during these ~unprecedented~ times is key in determining if we want to choose to be active consumers of their business and/or service. Kasi is the true definition of what it means to be professional. She is respectful of public health protocols & guidelines, and I never once felt unsafe, nervous or guilty for my decision to choose to get my hair done during a pandemic. I know one of the reasons why I didn’t feel those negative feelings is because of her! Her attention to detail and seemingly effortless ability to always put her clients first made me realize, tenfold, that I am in good (clean & safe!) hands! I also LOVED the shampoo & conditioner she used on my hair!! I will definitely have to buy some!! & I like that her salon carries the leave in conditioner I like to use too! If you are in need of finding a salon & stylist who will exceed your expectations, AND keep you safe + healthy, look no further!! This is the place to be!! ☺️💛✨

Five stars aren't enough stars to give Kasi for her amazing work! I have been going to her for 5+ years and will not go anywhere else. Her knowledge is incredible and she will steer you in the best direction to get you to your goal hair style/color. She does a thorough consultation so you are aware of her thought process & steps that will need to be taken to reach your desired end result. Over the years she has been able to take my naturally brunette hair to a lovely dark brown, a beautiful red, and even blonde ...Not to mention she has styled my hair while its long, and even chopped it short. I've loved every color & style I've walked out of the salon with. If you are looking for a new stylist- you don't need to look any further than Rustic Roots, you won't be disappointed!
