Kari is a locally grown, Apex, North Carolina native. She has been styling hair since 2010, and found her home at Sam & Bill’s in 2013, and has been here ever since.

Outside of the Salon Kari has her hands full with her daughter/”twin”, Mckenna. The only thing she does better than hair, is being a mom to Mckenna.

Kari loves getting to know her clients and enjoys meeting people from a variety of backgrounds. She is great at working with a variety of hair types and creating beautiful movement for each individual. As a veteran stylist Kari is very diverse in her skillset, with everything from men’s cuts and keratin treatments to specialized blondes! She is a true pro, but her passion and expertise lies in balayage and customizing blondes.
