“I visited Rustic Salon for the first time today. I am 100% pleased with the way my hair looks, feels, and smells. Kirsten was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. It is quite evident that she loves what she does. The salon is inviting, clean, and super cute. There is no pressure to purchase products, however I was told which products were being used and what purpose they served—which I appreciated. If you are looking for a salon, and you haven't tried Rustic - you should! You will be glad you did!”

Opening

Before the launch of Rustic Salon, Kaitlyn was already making a name for herself as a stylist. When the opportunity to open a salon presented itself, Kaitlyn’s vision was simple. To create a salon where clients are treated to a comfortable, high-end salon experience and team members are encouraged to grow. To capture the fusion of the warm and welcoming ambiance of the salon and its commitment to high-end services, she called the place Rustic Salon.
