  • Laurie (Kvech) Schroeder

    As a Master Stylist and our inspiring Team Leader has been in the industry for many years, feeding her passion for creating the image our clients would like to project, while helping them feel beautiful (or handsome!).

Most of our stylists have become stylists through the training program here in the salon. 

     Laurie still loves to create beautiful style through color, haircutting & styling services taking care of friends and clients she has known for may years. She has been honored as "Best Color Artist" & "One of Baltimore's Top Ten Stylists" by Baltimore Magazine.

  • Jen Johnson

     Jen thought joining the world of beauty was the perfect way to combine her creative side with her love of making people feel good...and we're so glad she did! 

    She  joined our team in 2008, and has earned her certification as a Goldwell Master Colorist, (and a BS in History, by the way). She loves creating dimensional color that compliments natural skin tone, to help you look your absolute best, as well as playing with the trendy,  vibrant colors that are so popular! While she is working with you, she will take time to explain what her approach will be and why, to insure that you understand how to take care of your hair at home. 

    At home, Jen loves watching her twin boys grow. They certainly keep her busy, but she is sure to make time to continue learning new things that will enhance her skills here in the salon!

    Jessica has been an integral part of our team since 2010. Always seeking out education to discover new techniques that enhance her skills, you can be sure to leave the salon in style, after having seen Jessica! Though she is equipped to create any color on the spectrum, she is known for her beautiful, and dimensional blondes in every tone.

    If long hair is your thing, Jessica loves doing long, layered cuts to provide body and movement. 'Don't have long hair now? That's OK, she will craft your long hair herself,  by adding extensions, making sure you know how to care for them to insure longevity.

    Jessica's  goal? "To provide anything that helps bring out the BEST version of you! I love to complete your look with color and cut to create the total look you long for."  She loves her working environment and her salon family, and knows you will too!  ..She loves channeling her creativity through hair, and is as genuine as they come!
