Katie Elizabeth Oakes



BIO

For Katie Oakes, hair is, and has always been, a passion. As a child, Katie dreamed of opening her own salon, and now she is turning those dreams into reality by opening her studio, Hair by Katie Oakes, in Savannah, GA. Born in Marietta and raised in Savannah, Katie offers true southern hospitality to every guest sitting in her chair. 

Katie knows that hair is one of the first things that people notice in a first impression; it reflects who you are as an individual, and it determines how much time you put into your appearance each day to reflect the image that you want the world to see. That's why she believes in a thorough consultation to establish a clear path to achieving your hair goals. Katie follows three basic principles in creating her art: Satisfaction, Strength, and Synchronicity.

Satisfaction: Your hair is a journey, and your stylist should be with you every step of the way. Katie takes this journey with her clients by discussing their style goals, developing a realistic plan for obtaining these goals, and communicating throughout the process to ensure client satisfaction. For Katie, success is a collaboration and cannot be achieved without you.

Strength: Your hair is a source of power. A good style should boost confidence, turn heads, and reflect the best version of you. Katie strives to empower her clients by turning their dreams into reality and showing off their strengths.

Synchronicity: Hair is not a separate factor, but is an extension of you. Katie takes into account the person beneath the hair in order to obtain the best results. She personalizes a new technique for each client, so that they are not merely receiving a generic cut or color for someone else, but are synchronizing the style they want with the style that is best suited for their face shape, complexion, personality, and many other factors.
