Session Salon Team, Hollie

A lover of beauty and fashion, Owner Hollie Haskins has always felt the hair industry is where she was supposed to be. With small-town Kansas roots and world travel experience, Hollie was inspired to bring the two together giving Session a “Paris of the Plains” feel. Hollie is a National Educator for L’Oreal Professionnel, where she has had the honor to share the stage and class room with some of the most well known hairdressers in the industry. Hollie continues to travel the country with L’Oreal Professionnel educating at their Academy, in salons, and on stage inspiring other hairdressers to learn, grow, and continue to master their craft.

Hollie is Balayage Certified with L’Oreal Professionnel, allowing her to specialize in custom, dimensional hair color always taking into consideration your eye color, face shape, and skin tone. Hollie will give you her suggestions on what best suits you and your lifestyle! 

Hollie is also trained and certified in the Kacey Welch Method of hair extensions and believes the KWM hair is truly the best hair on the planet. Bringing Kacey Welch to Kansas City and training 8 of our stylists is something Hollie is super proud of. Hollie then had the honor of working with The Kacey Welch Team at New York Fashion week doing the hair for the Rebecca Minkoff show! 

Hollie will typically be working with an associate that she has trained and holds to the highest standards, together giving you the most special treatment.
