"Katie always does a fantastic job on my hair! I just got my hair cut today and will be seeing her in two week to get my hair balayage. I’ve been getting my hair done with Katie for over a year now and I’m so glad that I found her. She has done hand painted balayage to violet color on my hair and it always turns out beautiful. Honestly, Katie is the only person that I can trust doing my hair."
