Laith Khatib

Laith has 10+ years of color and cutting experience, making his clients (and colleagues) laugh along the way.

He’s known for his light-hearted spirit and genuine connection with his clients.

Laith’s technical depth allows him to create high-end styles and his signature “lazy girl hairstyle” that make his clients feel like the best version of themselves, inside and out. It’s not unheard of for his clients to drive an hour to see him because they don’t trust anyone else with their hair.

Laith is a balayage and blonde specialist. He’s also a Redken master colorist and advanced cutting TIGI certified.

Away from the chair: Self-proclaimed party boy, Laith is fueled by nightlife and coffee. If you’ve been in the salon, it’s likely you’ve heard him share his mantra, “Just like guacamole, I’m extra!”
