3 Facts About Me

  • It is important to me to clearly understand the hairstyle that my clients want. I ask lots of questions to help me visualize it, and then we work together to figure out the best approach to fit their vision, budget & lifestyle.
  • I love to research and stay on top of changes in the industry. It is important for me to learn new trends, styles and techniques that allow me to be a good resource for clients.
  • I enjoy educating my clients on the “what-why-how” behind haircare and hairstyling products. Understanding what products & tools to use, as well as how to use them, makes it easier for my clients to duplicate the in-salon look at home, and it helps them maintain a healthy hairstyle!

Favorite Haircare and Styling Aids:

  • Pureology Hydrate Shampoo & Conditioner: I love the entire hydrate line. The shampoo gives a gentle cleanse while providing extreme hydration and color retention. The conditioner also provides hydration while minimizing static without weighing it down.
  • Pureology Rootlift: This lightweight product gives amazing lift and hold in the root area, protects from humidity, and it is designed for color treated hair.
  • Pureology Nourishing Nectar: I love using this lightweight gel for many of my blowouts. It has shine, hold, and strengthens hair while making the blowdry easier and more controlled.

Hobbies

I love spending time with my family and friends, outdoors activities, and listening to music!

Customer Reviews

Voga Salon
Excellent service! Fabulous salon. I love that everything happens in the same room and I don’t have to get up and walk to the sinks. Katie was very professional and gave me a great consultation before she started. I’ve never been asked so many questions at a salon! I really felt that she wanted to understand fully what I wanted and what kind of challenges I face with my hair.
Voga Salon
First time experience was great! I was cutting off several inches, which is always a little nerve wrecking and Katie was super awesome! She looked at some pictures I had, talked through my personal style, discussed my face shape and what cut would work best for me and my style. I’ve never had a hair stylist spend that much time and energy to ensure we were finding a style that worked for me. Additionally, they have and use cream wax! I never knew such a wonderful product existed. I have fair skin and always dread getting a wax as I stay pink for days, however the cream wax did not have that affect on my skin. LOVE this place and have already scheduled another appointment :)
Voga Salon
Came in yesterday for a balayage color - side note, I have black hair and am always a bit nervous of coloring my hair since it is so difficult to put a color on that is not only noticeable, but that looks good as well. Katie Johnson exceeded expectations, and I am in love with my new hair color!! She said the color inside of the salon wouldn't do it justice, and oh man I love the way it looks in the sun too! Also adding another side note - with the color consultation before my appointment, I felt super comfortable that she knew what I wanted, and I also knew the money I was going to be spending. No surprises. Thanks Voga, so happy I found a hair home!
