Growing up,  I loved doing my hair and eventually started styling my friends' hair. This was my first step to what is now a rewarding career in the beauty industry. It's an honor for family, friends and guests to open up and trust me with their hair---whether I'm creating luxe Balayage color, styling soft beachy waves, or cutting a transformative new look. Seeing a change in my chair and a smile on their face as they leave Mango never grows old!


BIT ABOUT ME   Two things that I love are visiting my family in Mexico and staying connected with my guests through social media. There is nothing more rewarding professionally than seeing a selfie of a guest who's color looks amazing several weeks after their visit.

Wow. Wow. Wow. That’s all I can say. I drive 2 1/2 hours to have Katia do my color and cut. I’ve been all over northern Virginia. To top-end stylists and paid hundreds upon hundreds of dollars to try to find the perfect color. Katia NAILED it. And balayage

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!

Brandi

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!!
