Katie Headshot website 400 x 600Please meet our newest and cutest (and uber-talented) Jr. Stylist, Katie Muench.  You have probably seen her throughout the salon, or at the front desk, over the last year while she took on (and conquered) our intense Apprentice Program.  We have known Katie for many years and her connection to Joseph Michael’s was already like family before she ever punched a time card.  It was her kind spirit and commitment to everything, and everyone, she cares about that first attracted us to Katie.  Luckily, we soon learned that she is an amazing stylist and are excited to be a part of her new career and her new life (she just got engaged to the love of her life Jim, whom we all think of as family, too.)

Although Katie knew from an early age she had a special love of the hair salon, “she used to go to the salon every Saturday morning…with Nana”, she took a more traditional route after high school and attended St Xavier University in Chicago where she graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BA in Mass Communications.  She worked for Northwestern Hospital and put herself through the prestigious Paul Mitchell, The School Chicago.  At Paul Mitchell, Katie was a Core Mentor and was invited to attend the Caper Event in Las Vegas.  Her accomplishments in life, as well as in school, are part of the reason Katie is the confident, talented stylist that she is today.  Her maturity as a young stylist is what we admire most.  She may not be able to stay away from chocolate, or the beach, but we still see her as a disciplined artist.  Katie may not admit to a favorite style of hair to work on, but we do know that she works wonders with a color brush!!  Trust us when we tell you that Katie is one of the special ones.  Maybe because she truly believes that “being a hairdresser is the best job!  I feel so lucky to be able to pursue my dream and I love the career path I chose.”

Katie’s men’s haircuts are $45 and women are $55.  Color starts at $69 and highlights from $100.
