I came in with a disatrous pixie haircut that had been growing for six weeks and needed some kind of shape. The haircut was disastrous because I had, oh so foolishly, gone elsewhere for "just a trim" to save my pennies. NEVER AGAIN. Kate was very understanding, and she explained exactly what she could and could not do with my hair until it grew out some more. She shaped my hair into a very cute style, and she reminded me that anyone in the salon could trim it for me as I was letting it grow out, and I could "save my pennies" that way until my hair was ready for a big new style. Kate is unbelievable smart, knows everything there is to know about hair, haircutting, and hair coloring, and she takes educating herself and her staff very, very seriously. She is an artist, and she views her work and the work at the salon as art. This is more than accurate! Salon Space is the best hair salon I've ever been to, and Kate is one in a million. Thank you, Kate!
