Mackenzie Kemppainen

I’ve grown up in a salon since I was a baby. My mom has been doing hair since before I was born so I think it might just run in my blood! I took cosmetology in high school and had my license right before I graduated. Doing hair has become therapy for me. My work never feels like work because I’m so happy doing what I do!

I love learning and continuing my education, and I’m lucky enough to get to go to the Redken Exchange in New York at least once or twice a year to do so! My favorite things to do are super fun, edgy haircuts & any of our creative color services! My job is my everything and I became the manager of studio in 2013 and I have loved taking on more responsibility and being even more involved in our Studio’s growth!

I love our little studio because all of our clients are all so friendly and when they come in, we’re all so comfortable talking to each other and having fun with each other. I have a lot of people tell me that our salon has a very “Steel Magnolias” feel to it! Studio CK is such a huge part of my life and my work brings me so much joy. I can’t express how grateful I am to have found my passion so early on in life.
