Salon Manager

I'm Karley! I've been a Washingtonian since birth! I am driven and passionate about everything I do! Working at Studio H is an absolute JOY and one of my greatest blessings. Being surrounded by such a strong group of women who champion each other in all they do has been incredibly special to be a part of. When I am not working, I am spending time with my husband, my family, reading a good book, or working on my photography business that I licensed back in 2020! Along with being the manager at Studio H, I also have the pleasure of running our social media accounts and photographing all the magic behind the scenes!

Level Three Stylist

 

Specialities: "Lived-in" Color/Cuts/Extensions

Hi! I'm Damaris aka @dama.beauty - I have been doing hair for four years. I started my career working at a salon in an assisted living facility and loved working with the older folks, but decided I wanted to specialize in color. I started working at Studio H in their amazing associates program and soon I was on the floor ready to start taking my own clients! Since then, I've been certified as a Redken Specialist as well as Redken Hair Color Authority. I truly enjoy big transformations and creating beautiful lived-in balayages which is why I've also become a Certified Balayage Master! If I'm not in the salon, you'll probably find me exploring the world, learning about new cultures, and admiring the new places. I also love being home with two fur babies! I can't wait to meet you and learn more about you while you're in my chair!

Front Desk Coordinator

Hey, I'm Anastasiia! I was born and raised in Siberia, and moved to Washington State by myself at the end of 2022. Despite being pretty new here, I already have a pleasant feeling that I've put down my roots. I've found real friends whom I can trust, new places that inspire me, and a cool job where I'm surrounded by professional and passionate people. Before I moved here I had been working as a web designer remotely and traveled a lot. I started to learn English diligently in London, UK in 2019 so I have a pretty weird combo of different accents. In my free time I'm exploring PNW hikes with my friends, and working on my motion graphic design portfolio.

M A K E N N A

Front Desk Coordinator

A little about me: I was born and raised in the Evergreen state. I've always enjoyed the natural area around so I am always trying to find cool places to camp or watch the sunrises/sunsets. I spend most of my free time with friends, family, or enjoying the outdoors. I started my job at Studio H hoping it would help me figure out if I would like to pursue aa career in the beauty industry as it has always been a thought!
