Katie Harper

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 travel adventure, sitting out on my porch with an iced coffee, and trying to keep up with my busy four-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 spending time with my fur babies!

Hello, I’m Kaylie! I’ve been in this industry for about 4 years, but this has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I went to the Academy of Hair Design in Oklahoma City. I’m excited to bring all of the big city trends I learned to my hometown. I specialize in customized, low maintenance, healthy blondes. I am also a makeup artist and specialize in weddings and special events. 

Fun facts about me - 

1. I was born and raised in New Phila but lived in Oklahoma City for 8 years. I love both:) 

2. I’ve always had a passion and a deep love for all things art.

3. I have not only an amazing fiancé but a beautiful 5 y/o bonus daughter.

4. I’ve traveled across the country for concerts/festivals

5. Weird/unknown fact- I’m obsessed with supercross/motorcross!

Hey, I’m Emma! For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to do nails. Nothing makes me happier than being able to create something that makes women feel empowered, beautiful, and confident- and that is always my goal with your nails! Here at Sage, I offer specialized Luminary Gel Services for natural nails. 


I have been running a small art business since I was 18 years old, and have art in homes as far as California! I love learning and make it a priority to have the best understanding of my products so I can give the best experience possible. My expertise in art is something that very much translates into how I do nails: so if you want nail art, I’m your girl! 


In my free time, you can find me playing with my labradoodle Archie, painting, playing instruments, being with family, or trying a new coffee flavor!

how sage began

Early in 2018, I noticed a diamond-in-the-rough space 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!
