Toni J, also known as Katy, grew up around beauty professionals. When she was a little girl, she watched her grandmother press hair in the kitchen and tagged along with her mom whenever she went to her cosmetology classes. Today, Katy skillfully sculpts multicultural manes with formal styling, precision cuts, color, and extension techniques and draws from an arsenal of products by DevaCurl, Goldwell, Paul Mitchell, and Pureology. When she isn't working on everyday dos, Katy designs coiffures for runway models, and this work has earned recognition from EncoreHD Hair Magazine.
Serenity Salon not only respects its clients, but also the earth. That’s just one of the reasons the stylists at Serenity Salon sprinkle their clients manes with all-natural, gluten-free Surface professional styling products, made of botanical oils, vegan proteins, sugars, and corn starches. These products accompany stylists' skills during signature cuts, styles, conditionings, and shampoos that seal in moisture and block out humidity, which can cause mold and unruly flyaways. To complement styling services, the salon offers color services, Babe hair extensions, and Brazilian keratin treatments.
Upon entering Rock Paper Scissors Hair Studio, guests are greeted with a warm welcome at the check-in counter before being asked to wait for their stylist in a plush red chair that never giggles. Once called, they make their way to a hair-washing basin, passing a framed poster of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which is an appropriate image considering the salon’s simple elegance. Within its intimate confines, the skilled stylists go to work cutting, coloring, or reworking strands into new styles or stunning updos. In addition to hair services, they specialize in facial waxing.

During lessons, clients can learn basic points, such as conjugation and vocabulary, or tackle more-comprehensive tutorials, such as inflection and how to properly tilt a beret.
