Hey! I'm Katie - stylist, nail artist, and owner at Sage hair. I specialize in custom blonde and lived-in color, and love hair cutting that works with your hair type and face shape. I absolutely adore doing detailed manicures and hand-painted nail art!
I grew up in Maryland along with my nine siblings and twenty cousins. I always had someone to try my cutting skills on, which means I've been doing hair for much longer than I've actually known how. But even though I've been doing hair since I was a kid, I didn't always know what I wanted to do. I thought for a long time about being a music teacher, a professor, or a mental health therapist. The beauty industry and business always interested me too, but everything didn't click into place until I opened Sage in 2018. I've totally found my passion. My favorite things about what I do? Great conversations, one-on-one time with my amazing clients, getting to be artistic, and the freedom and challenges that come from business ownership!
When I'm not behind the chair, you can find me planning my next home improvement project, working on my bullet journal, and trying to keep up with my busy two-year-old! Can't wait to get to know you too!
Hey, I'm Lindsey! I specialize in blonding, texturized haircutting, and color corrections. I absolutely love a good hair challenge and I am always ready for anything. I joined Katie at Sage in the fall of 2019, and it's my home away from home.
I graduated from The Avada Institute of Columbus in 2018. Throughout my schooling, I gained experience by working alongside my instructors doing fashion shows for the Columbus College of Art & Design, working behind the scenes on WOSU TV, and I received the 2018 Pro Beauty Association Beacon Honorable Mention award as a student stylist. In the fall of 2018, I was showcased as a RAW artist in an organization based out of LA, CA.
In my free time, you can catch me out in my garden, cooking up a good dish, or mixing up a good cocktail at the Brewhouse!

It’s been about 7 years now that I’ve been doing hair, with an emphasis on low maintenance balayage and lived in color. I view beauty services as a way to help people heal and I don’t underestimate the power of the work I chose to take part in. I am passionate about making each individual I work with feel comfortable, confident, and most importantly understood. Deep healing can unfold as we hold space free of judgment and preconceived notions. Of course I find creativity within the ability to fix split ends and mend a botched color but as a stylist, I find deeper meaning within that. I want to bring out the inner confidence and self-worth of each individual that find their way to me. Within a salon experience, I want to create a space that helps heal and transform each guest into the best version of themselves. My goal is to consistently create tailored looks that fit overall goals, lifestyle, hair care routine, and budget. Part of the reason I love what I do so much is because it allows me the time to pursue other passions. When I’m not in the salon you can find me somewhere out in nature, on local trail with my dober girls (dog daughters) or riding around on my motorcycle. Being able to have authentic experiences outside of the salon plays an important role in my progression as a stylist. I cannot wait to connect with you all and create gorgeous hair!
Hi, I'm Claudia! Blonde and organic hair care specialist. I love to transform not only your hair color, but hair quality. I also have training in different extension installations, Keratin smoothing treatments, and bridal styling.
I graduated from Tusco Beauty School in 2019 with great recommendations from my instructors. The past year I have been gaining experience as well as passions in this industry and have landed on an organic and environmentally-friendly hair color and product line. I joined Sage in July of 2020 and I'm so excited to showcase my passions and start this journey with you!
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my daughter Waverly, taking pottery classes with my mom, and curling up with a good book in the evenings.
how sage began
Early in 2018, I noticed a diamond-in-the-rough shop only a block from Downtown New Philadelphia. I immediately had a vision for a little three chair salon with a fresh, natural, and comfortable vibe. With help from family and friends, (and with a newborn) my amazing husband, Andrew and I renovated this space into a bright and cozy "shop-around-the corner". It's a place where you can step away from the hustle to treat yourself, and leave feeling refreshed and ready to face the world!
