About Kathy Babbs

My name is Kathy and I have over 25 years experience in the hair industry and owning my own business and salon as well. My expertise is in conservative but stylish and up-to-date precision haircuts for men and women... regardless of your age. I also do lots of all over color, Cap highlights/lowlights, and beautiful body waves and perms. The Fountain of Youth has everything to do with how you wear your hair! The cheapest facelift you can buy is a haircut! The experience is all about you, so I pride myself on being on time because I respect yours!

My salon is private, professional, and relaxing. Looking forward to hearing from you!

I have been a client of Kathy's for many years and am always pleased with my color and cuts. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting a professional cut and/or color. - Karen P

I really enjoy my time with Kathy at Sola Salons. It is a special treat which relaxes me so much & I enjoy the privacy as well as the cozy feeling her studio has! - Jane

I can honestly say that I have been going to Kathy to get my hair done since I was a toddler. She is one the most talented, genuine, and kind hair professionals, and Sola Salon is extremely fortunate to have her as one of their many fantastic team members. Even now, as a resident of Florida for the past 3 years, I still frequently travel back home to see my family, which also includes a trip to see Kathy at Sola. She always listens and does a great job with my hair and I honestly wouldn't trust anyone else! -Anisa Jallal

Kathy has been my hairdresser for many many years. I have received compliments on my hair cuts, perms, styles and how great my hair looks. Kathy works to always please your desires. Thanks Kathy. - Ella P.

I am so glad that Kathy came into my life. I have very fine blonde hair and want my hair to look like it's thicker. With the cut and the highlights, she has done a great job!

I have been a client of Kathy's for more than 20 years. I trust her to always give me a great haircut, which isn't easy given my crazy hair. While I know longer color my hair, when I did, she also did a nice job with that for me. I have moved out of state now but still always schedule with Kathy for a

haircut when I am back in town. She also has cut my husband's hair all these years, and still does when we are in town. We highly recommend her. - Traci and Greg Dolan

Kathy Babbs has been my go to hairstylist for over 20 years. She has always done an excellent job on my color and cut and never disappoints. She has perfected my color to the point that you can't even tell when it's time for a touch up. She always asks how much I would like trimmed and whether it's an inch or half inch she is right on. Over the years she has made suggestions in regards to my cut and there again she is right on. I have never been happier with a hairstylist as I have been with Kathy. - Pam Crawford

One word comes to mind as I write this about Kathy Babbs and that is tenacity.

I have been with Kathy for almost a year and a half after my hair dresser retired after 46 years of being with her.

Kathy has been very determined to please me with all of my requirements I have been accustomed to such as my color, set, perm etc.

Along with this she is a very warm and caring person.

I have gone to my hair stylist Kathy Babbs every week for over 20 years to get my hair styled, cut, and permed. I have never had a bad hair day! I feel so blessed by her gifted hands and more by her treasured friendship! Kathy is always accommodating to my ever changing schedule. No one has ever cut my hair since I started going to her. She makes me look like I want to look when I look in the mirror! She is prompt with the appointments and I have never had to wait on her. She is the best! I always get this comment when I'm out and about from perfect strangers! “Who does your hair?”. She is also fun to be with, always cheerful and now my best friend!

Kathy has been my hair specialist for over 20 years. She's always done an amazing job and makes every effort to accommodate my busy schedule. I've gone through a variety of styles and subtle color changes on occasion and it's always looked fantastic. It's wonderful to have someone you can trust that will always give you what you need usually on a time line that meets your needs. I'd highly recommend her!

Greg Cooper

If you want to always have a good hair day... get a Kathy cut. I have fine, flat hair and wear it short. A Kathy cut makes my hair look so much fuller with a little sass. I’ve had a lot of haircuts in my 60 years. Kathy is the best !!


Have known Kathy for over 30 years. Not only is she a fantastic stylist, but her care and compassion for her clients is, without doubt, her best asset. Always look forward to my appointments because I know we will have good conversations and lots of laughs!!! She is the best!

Kathy brings her "A" game to every appointment for services. She is not only a talented hair stylist, but she makes you feel at home. I've been her client for over 25 yrs. I give her a A++

I would like to take a minute to tell you why Kathy Babbs is the best person I know. Kathy has been doing my hair for 30 years now. I have recommended her to all my friends through the years. She has always done such a wonderful job on my hair and my daughters since she was born. My daughter still travels home from Florida just to have Kathy do her hair because like me she trusts no one else to cut it. Not only has she taken care of our hair but is such an awesome soul. She has a heart of gold and is such a beautiful human. You just don't cross many people in life that you can truly call your friend but Kathy is a dear friend to us. She has always cared deeply and I can't imagine anyone I'd rather see every month. I look forward to my time with Kathy because it is more than just a cut and colour. It is my monthly therapy!! I would tell anyone if they want the beat hairdresser in Indianapolis call Kathy!! Thank you Kathy for you love and friendship we have built through the years you truly mean the world to me.

"The year was 1989 when my husband (without my knowledge) walked into a salon near where we were living and made an appointment for me to have a permanent! Kathy was the lucky girl to get the assignment and I was lucky to be introduced to Kathy. Those permanent days are long gone but Kathy has cut and styled my hair obviously very much to my satisfaction for over 30 years! I have received numerous compliments from friends and strangers and have been asked for my hairdresser's name many times. Even as important, I regard Kathy as a true professional and a good friend and look forward to my every five week visit with her!"

When my one and only hairdresser retired about 15 years ago, I went through 2 to 3 hairdressers in a short period of time.  I knew of Kathy as her step father was my boss.  I thought I would give her a try because I was not happy where I was.  We have been hairdresser and client happily ever since, as well as friend and confidant.  I really look forward to my appointments.  She is so willing to help me look the way I want to look and not necessarily the way she wants me to look and I really appreciate that.  She is always on time and personable.  If I need to change my appointment, she seems to get me in right away.  I hope she is planning to be around for a long time-as I plan to be her client forever.  Thanks Kathy for all you do!

Having fine straight hair , it has always been a challenge in finding a stylist that is able to create volume and movement . Kathy has been able to do just that for me. Beyond the cut, her expertise is color is wonderful. Her creativity, friendly, down-to-earth approach and the quality of her work have ensured I will keep going back to her again and again.


Just love Kathy! She has been cutting my hair every month for so many years I can’t remember when we first met! Never had a bad trim! Always tries to be accommodating to my schedule and is such a great person. I have gotten many compliments over the years all due to her handiwork!
