Growing up I use to always like doing my own hair and when I started doing my friend's hair I knew the beauty industry was for me.  It's an honor for people to trust you and I enjoy having my guest's open up to me. I also love being able to see the change happen in my chair and the big smile as they leave the salon.

Two things that I love are going to Mexico and platform shoes. Mexico because I get to visit my family and then platform shoes because you can be tall but not get a workout from walking around!

Very punctual and attentive to another appointment that I needed to get to.

Love her and recommend her to my friends and clients on a regular basis!

On top of that, I always feel like I am being pampered during the wash and rinse portion of the process. Great experience all the way around.

Katia is an excellent listener and talented stylist. She works hard to make an idea a reality, but also puts in her thoughts based on her expertise.


July 14,2017
I have never had a better stylist than Katia! She is an absolute jewel and such an asset to Mango Salon.....she is the reason that I look forward to seeing her every 3 weeks to “keep” my hair looking so natural, healthy and shiny. Of course, it is always a pleasure being greeted by your friendly receptionist, Jean too! I was most impressed this week with the “client appreciation” specials and enjoyed not only a special deep conditioning at a discounted rate.....but also a discount on the products I love!


July 14,2017
Katia is amazing! And the head and hand massage were awesome.


July 10,2017
Katia always makes my experience amazing! She continuously goes above and beyond to make sure my hair looks perfect every time I leave. I travel from out of town because she is the best stylist I have ever had. I will always be back, thank you!

Katia is great! She is very knowledgeable and makes sure you are happy with your hair. She is very patient and wonderful.

April 26,2017
Everything! I was greeted by Jackie who was very friendly and nice. She gave me a quick tour of the salon, and explained to me the importance of changing and making sure I removed my shirt, to prevent any potential mishaps. She offered me coffee or water, and advised me to take advantage of the lockers in the changing room to leave my belongings, and not have to worry about them! Katia is absolutely fabulous!!! I have known this girl since she was 16 years old, but as we got older our schedules got busy, and our lives took different paths, so we lost touch. A few months ago looking through Instagram I came across her profile and saw that she was a hair stylist now. I took one look at some of the pictures of her work, and I was sold! She is not only all grown up! hahaha But an amazing stylist, my hair needed some saving, and because I do some modeling and acting from time to time, she was a bit limited on what she was "allowed" to do. (The agency doesn't like for me to have drastic changes on my persona, since then booking becomes an issue!) She NAILED IT!! My hair came back to life, it finally lost those hideous orange and red tones it had, and on top of that, Alexis who was fantastic, gave me the best head massage I have ever had! My hair is now with gorgeous natural tones, and super soft! Even the check-out process was smooth, and the girl taking care of me was super nice! I'm so happy I found Katia, and Mango Salon!!
