KatieOwner & Stylist

    Katie is an Iowa City native and graduate of La’ James Cosmetology School. She spent 14 years at Michael Tschantz Salon where she built a loyal client base. Katie specializes in color, highlights, and cutting women’s hair of all lengths and textures. Katie trained with Aveda for many years and is now enjoying the continuing education provided by UNITE.  Katie attended the UNITE Global Session in San Diego where she further mastered current techniques.

    At an early age, Katie was drawn to art and brings this passion for creativity to Nova Salon. She loves using her skills to boost her client’s self confidence. Outside of the salon, Katie enjoys cooking, gardening, and transforming her backyard into a place to entertain her family and friends. She can be found at Sunday brunch with friends, shopping in downtown Iowa City, or walking her beloved hound-lab mix, Macy.

    Katie’s must have product is UNITE TEXTURIZA spray. This dry finishing spray gives a rough texture to hair while acting as a light hairspray. It can also be used to refresh day old hair, acting as three products in one!
