As a colorist, Kari lives by the saying that “We paint murals, not walls."  She sees every client as a blank canvas with a story waiting to be told.  As an American Board trained Colorist, Kari enjoys the science behind color and really honed in on her craft!  She has won color contests earning her the opportunity to study at the L’Oréal Academy in SoHo and has attended a several classes hosted by L’Oréal Professional Artists.  Along with keeping up the current color trends & techniques, Kari loves zoning in on precision cuts ,with the classic bob being her favorite.  She specializes in dimensional color, balayage , bombshell blonding and highlights , keratin treatments, and natural hair!
