We come from different places, different backgrounds, and different styles, but we're all here because we want to be.


Megan Culton

Megan was living in Chapel Hill, dreaming of a way to have a career that she was passionate about, while honoring and giving space for her various creative musings; music being at its core. It’s been ten years since Megan stepped behind the chair and began working to build the life she wanted. She has grown to become a master color and cut specialist who especially enjoys working with curly textures and giving structured haircuts that wear well over time. Becoming a stylist and salon owner has given her the creative and collaborative outlet needed while creating a space to care for clients and build a community. She wanted the salon to be a place that facilitated a relaxed client experience, practiced the ethical treatment of employees, supported local artists and charitable organizations--her vision of what a modern, socially-conscious salon could be.

She loves the freedom this salon has given her to grow, not only in her professional career but in her personal life. The relationships she’s built with her clients and coworkers are something she holds very dear and why she loves what she does.

Aggie Kaler

Aggie has been doing hair for over a decade. Originally from South Florida, an ideal environment to study how climate and humidity will impact hair, Aggie focused on air drying techniques and bringing out natural textures under her Vidal Sassoon mentor for 3 years. Since then, her desire to learn to execute a balance of moisture, advanced haircut techniques and low-maintenance styling to encourage a beautiful air dry result has been the primary focus of her career. Six years ago she brought this expertise to Brooklyn where she is committed to educating herself from top stylists around the world (such as Corinna with Pony Salon & Education, Jayne with Edo Salon & Gallery, and many more). She continues this work with her clients every day, guiding them on how to effortlessly air dry and style the perfect cut, and how by working with what you have you can achieve a natural and uncomplicated finish with minimal effort.

We’re so happy that natural texture is finally getting its place in the sun.

Katie Minalga

Katie packed up her creativity (along with her cat Binx) and headed from Bozeman, Montana to New York City to further her passion. With years under her belt as a hairstylist and a color educator, her main motivation has always been her love of doing hair. Her new city has inspired that spark even more, feeling excitement and discovering new ideas everywhere she turns. Katie’s style of doing hair has always been crafting effortless looks while keeping them fashion forward. Not shy of using bold colors or adding a boho western flare, she knew she would find her dream clientele at a salon home in Brooklyn.

Katie's commitment to her industry is to give back to her clients what doing hair has given her...happiness. She looks forward to seeing you soon!
