Mary Catherine is a Genius!

Taming my curly mane is no small task; it requires skill and insight. Mary Catherine understood the intricacies of my curls and she masterfully delivered the BEST cut I have ever enjoyed! She also orchestrated a glorious color that looks sun-kissed and natural. Mary Catherine is not only sweet, but she is intuitive and wildly talented! I highly recommend Mary Catherine at Akada Hair Salon!

Kelli- Fantastic Colorist/ Stylist

I was looking to update my look, when one of my staff members referred me to Kelli. Kelli's suggestions made it easy to decide what I really wanted and I could not be happier. My color is natural yet still has a pop( exactly what I need at 50...), and my cut lays so nicely with very little effort. If you're looking for a new stylist, I would highly recommend Kelli Sanders at Akada Hair Salon.

Tejay- Great Stylist & Customer Service

Tejay is a great stylist and a new go to for Men's cuts!

A couple weeks ago,I set up an appointment at Akada with Tejay in search of a new stylist. After sitting down with Tejay, I found that he has extensive training for both men and women's cuts and prides himself on building a good rapport with his clients, while ensuring great customer service.

The one major selling point I had with Tejay was that he only used scissors, a technique that is a true measure of a great men's haircut.

Additionally, while Akada carries a range of amazing products, this can be daunting for a guy. Tejay was able to direct me to what products would best suit my hair type as well as overall atheistic.

My over all experience with Tejay and the Akada Salon was great. The atmosphere wasn't intimidating for a guy to walk into and I left feeling that I had quality service from a professional.

Amie is incredible!

Amie is the very best. Her cuts and color are perfect. I've been to every top salon in Columbus over the past years and never been happy with both cut and color. I am not surprised that her former clients from Chicago still come to Amie here! She is an amazing hair professional.

Best service, perfect cut/color

I was wanting to try a different place since my stylist, Radeo, from Phia salon, left. I researched this place and read the reviews on the site, and decided to schedule an appointment. This was the best decision I have made for my hair. Mary Catherine knew exactly what she was doing and she was very precise. She told me what she suggested and asked if I had any questions. My hair color turned out amazing. She matched up swatches of color to my skin tone. This was my best haircut/color yet. I will continue going to Mary Catherine! The price is cheaper than what I paid for at the Phia salon. It is well worth it!

Amie is the best!

My Mom took me to Amie to get my haircut as a bday present. I have long layers that normally get out of hand within a month or two after a cut, but I don't like to get my haircut every month. Amie sat me down first and talked about my hair, my routine, and what I wanted. Then she cut my hair and told me about what she was doing. Three months later, the cut is still great, and it still holds curl and everything. Went back this weekend for another cut from Amie, and it is just as great a cut as the first visit. My 12-year old also got a haircut from Mary Katherine, and it looks super duper too!!!

Lindsey Williams is fantastic!

am new to Ohio and needed to find a great hair stylist. I decided to try Lindsey at Acada based on the great reviews. Wow! She is awesome! Without a doubt I got the best haircut that I've ever had in my life! In addition, she took the time to talk to me beforehand about what I wanted. Although it's been a couple of weeks, I still cannot believe how fantastic she has made my hair look. I always knew the importance of a good cut, but my hair is doing things it's never done before just because of Lindsey's great handiwork! I highly recommend her, I know I will be returning!!

Amie is Awesome!!

I have been seeing Amie for the past 6 months or so after moving back to Columbus from a much larger city and could not be happier! She is absolutely the most on trend and best stylist I have had over the years anywhere I have lived - I am so thankful she is in Columbus! Looking forward to being with her for a long while and would recommend her to anybody!

Great men's cuts

I've had a hard time finding a hair-cut that lasts more than a month, but Amie's hair-cuts are top-notch and typically last me two months. I keep a pretty close cut and Amie does it all with a scissors - no clippers. I totally recommend her if you are looking for a great men's cut in Columbus.

Thanks Amie....

Amie Vonderloh at Akada takes care of me and my widow's peak! She has been cutting my hair for over a decade and continues to keep my cut looking full, styled, and does it while making the experience emotionally painless as I brave the dismal future of my receding head of hair.

She is also by far the easiest stylist to have a great conversation with. I have had others and no one is as enjoyable as Amie. They pale in comparison. Amie is a riot. She always remembers what is going on in my life and it is always a hoot to hear about what is happening in her's.

Akada in general does a fabulous job in making me feel welcome when I come to town. There is no big city snobbery and the care and consultation is what keeps me coming back!
