I will listen to your needs and do everything I can to make sure my chair is a comfortable and relaxing place for you. We will work together on any issues you have with your hair so you can confidently recreate your style at home. We will be a team.
I can remember all the way back to my childhood loving hair and all that comes with the industry. I have always been very particular about my own hair and loved being a stylist for my friends before high-school dances or a weekend night out! It was a natural choice to go to hair school after graduating. I started my career at 18 and love what I do. Most days it doesn’t even feel like work!
After working behind the chair for six years I decided to pursue the highly respected and very challenging Aveda Purefessional educator path. As a color educator and Purefessional with Aveda for eight years, I was privileged to be the first educated each year on the newest color trends and bring that knowledge back to Aveda stylists primarily in Kansas and Missouri. Then, the next adventure and challenge called my name.
Owning a salon was always a dream. I work hard to set an example for my Salon Aspire team, encourage their aspirations and support them with continuous education to remain one step ahead of the latest trends and movements in the beauty industry. I am a perfectionist and love channeling my energy into my guests and creating the best experience possible. Away from the salon you’ll find me exploring Wichita and all it has to offer with my beautiful family. An early riser, I start my day with a good workout session and usually wind down in the evening with a good book.
I would love to be your hair stylist. Check out my work on my Instagram page! Call or book online anytime!
After your service with me you can expect to leave the salon feeling like you have a style that is easy for you to maintain at home. I’ll give you product recommendations that are tailored to your specific needs.
Making people feel good about themselves is one of the best parts of being a hairstylist! I love building relationships with different people and enjoy the opportunity to grow and expand my creativity every day. When my guests are in my chair, they can expect my undivided attention. I take the time to understand and address everyone’s specific needs and desires, which ensures my guests leave the salon feeling pampered and well taken care of. I am always learning and looking for new ways to expand my professional skill set.
I am extremely outgoing and love having a good conversation. I’m laid back with a small-town mentality. In my free time, you can expect to find me at home or with friends, spending quality time with my boyfriend, Cole, his amazing daughter Carleigh and our three very sweet and very active dogs, Boomer, Klaus and Ellie! I would love to help you feel like your best, most beautiful self! Call Salon Aspire to schedule or book an appointment with me online. You can see some of my work on our salon Instagram page @salonaspire. Can’t wait to meet you!
While you’re in my chair you can expect great conversation and a service you’ll love! I’m a great listener and I know you’ll be able to see and feel how passionate I am about this industry and the relationships I have with my guests.
I became a hairstylist because I knew I would never be fulfilled by a career behind a desk. I’m creative, quirky and love learning new things! One of my favorite parts of this profession is being able to help build confidence in others and make them feel on top of the world. Something that sets me apart from other stylists is my experience working on magazine shoots and runway shows. I love being able to take the skills I learned in those settings and bring them to the guests sitting in my chair. I really enjoy learning and am certified in tape-in and hand-tied extensions. I am thrilled to be able to offer my guests a wide array of services!
Outside the salon, you’ll find me taking photos of my dog or going on adventures with my husband. I love being silly and seeking out new hobbies.
Talking to people is one of my favorite things, so to have a career where I can be creative and interact with clients all day is really exciting to me.
I love learning all the ins and outs of this profession. I’m always looking for ways to improve to give my clients the best style possible!
I have a bubbly personality and you can expect lots of good conversation while you’re at the salon. I bartended for over five years, and while that may seem irrelevant to my career in hair, it helped me learn to listen to what people want, offer recommendations and really break out of my shell to give the best service possible. I will always strive to give you a fun, yet professional experience!
One of my favorite hobbies is crafting, so you can expect to find me creating something on my days off. I’m full of fun facts and know a little bit about everything. I think I would be a pretty good Jeopardy contestant!
I really enjoy color, especially gray blending and balayage. I love giving someone a lived-in, blended look.
Can’t wait to meet you! I really enjoy building relationships with my guests and look forward to updates on their lives and hair when they come back to sit in my chair.
I really appreciate how Aveda uses natural aromas in their at-home products, and respect the science behind the ingredients we use to solve each client’s hair needs. I know you’ll love Aveda’s color line because each color we use will be unique and personalized to you to create your best look.
Find me on Instagram @cosmowithlo. I’m recently married and love our two Great Danes, being an aunt and spending time with my nieces and nephew!
I will make sure your hair is as beautiful as you are.
I admit I am a perfectionist, so it will be important to me that your hair is perfect before you leave the salon. I moved over 200 miles to Wichita to pursue my career in cosmetology, and couldn’t be happier. I want you to feel that same way when you leave my chair.
Blonding, blowouts and addressing graying are services I love to provide. A fun fact, bobs and shoulder-length cuts are my favorite go-to hairstyles. And if you want a wash and style for a special occasion, I’m your man.
I look forward to meeting you and building a relationship with you that honors your preferences and makes the most of your beauty assets.
I have always believed my purpose in life is to help people.
I can’t think of anything I’d rather do than help people feel beautiful. My favorite part of being an esthetician is watching a client leave feeling refreshed and confident! That begins with the science of Aveda and continues with getting to know you and understand your unique style.
Outside of the salon, I enjoy reading, working out at the gym and snuggling my Great Dane.
Hope you’ll find me on Insta @mad.peachyesthetics and book an appointment. Can’t wait to serve you!
I have a passion for the science of hair. Nothing is more satisfying than accomplishing your color goals while improving your hair health. I would love to take care of your hair needs.
I absolutely love creating color masterpieces, especially color corrections and blonding. From the time I was a little girl I was obsessed with all things beauty. I loved playing with hair and makeup. I French braided every Barbie, baby doll, and human in our home before I went to kindergarten. By the time I watched Steel Magnolias for the first time in third grade I knew I wanted to be a “glamour technician” just like Truvy!
I went the traditional route at K-State, switching my major from journalism to teaching and finally settling on biochemistry. I have worked in healthcare and marketing for corporate America but never really loved it. Things came to a head with the pandemic. I decided life was too short and precious to not love what I do so I enrolled in cosmetology school. After graduating from Eric Fisher Academy this year, I can say this is the best decision and career move I’ve made.
I believe we have the power to spark joy and change lives for the better by bringing out the beauty within us. Sometimes that is achieved by listening and allowing people to confide in us … sometimes it is through solving a small hair dilemma with the right product. Ultimately, it is taking care of people.
Hey, y’all! Dolly Parton said it best: “Never ignore your roots, your home, or your hair.” Growing up watching my mom do hair, and obsessed with all things beauty, I knew I had a place in this industry! From updos to vivid hair color to lived-in blonde, I am still to this day obsessed! The grand reveal at the end of an appointment is my favorite part of being a stylist.
I’m a 20-something Southwest Kansas girl ready to take on some hair! I went to beauty school at Hays Academy of Hair Design and worked in my hometown at a salon for a few months before finding my spot here. You will never see me without my nails done or without my water cup! I love Kansas, family, fashion, hair, Jesus, my 12-pound mutt (Pickle Boy), working out, skiing, and teasing my siblings. My long-term partner is my rock and the steady, realistic answer to my crazy ambitions. My mom is my inspiration; she is that person for so many people and I want to be even just half the human she is.
Stop by and see me or the team soon and let’s make you sparkle! So excited to meet you!
Whether it’s your first time or you’re here monthly, I’ll make sure you feel welcome and at home. I am detail-oriented and will work to make sure you have the best experience. I’ll listen to every need, making sure you are comfortable with every aspect of our salon.
I love working in the beauty industry! I worked behind the chair for many years and am excited to now be fully on the business side. I am proud that our salon works to be active in our community with an environmentally friendly mission. I love to learn and research how to make our salon one-of-a-kind. I am always here to offer honest and sincere help in any way.
On my days off you may find me and my husband walking our adorable fur baby Phoebe. Most of my friends know to come to me when they need a good book recommendation. And I am currently on a quest to visit every local coffee shop in Wichita. Visit Salon Aspire and I guarantee you will have a salon experience like you have never had before from the moment you walk in the door!
