Founder

Kimberly Michalik

Hairstyling since 1989, I entered the scene at an exciting time of spiral waves and voluminous hair. In an ever changing field I trained under some very talented professionals specializing in geometric haircuts, creating weight in fine hair, distributing weight in heavy hair and freeing up curls that lay static. My years of experience has given me the purpose of helping individuals look and feel confident about themselves. There is nothing more rewarding than having a reaction, “My hair has never looked this good” from a guest. Connecting with people and customizing a unique look for my clients, cut and color is so rewarding. 

Providing my clients with solutions to their hair or scalp challenges drives me to further my knowledge of the latest innovations and trends. I’ve enjoyed dedicating myself to extensive education, creating a better version of myself, and being a leader within my industry for over three decades.

I have always had a strong passion for scalp and hair wellness. Keeping the integrity of health in mind, I believe that if one takes care of themself from the inside first, the outside will radiate with beauty. I absolutely love what I do as a career and so do the stylists I employ and mentor. I have confidence you will feel the positive energy within our salon the moment you step into our doors.

Rachael

I joined the cosmetology industry in 2016 after graduating from Lytle’s Beauty College. I am devoted to my continuing education and making sure I have all the latest knowledge and skills to provide clients with their dream hair. 

Over my career, I have discovered a specific passion for the patience and nuances required for both color corrections and blonding. The perfect color is a mix of science, experience, and creativity. I find the work that goes into achieving that color is an energizing challenge that never gets old. 

I am also a Babe Hair Extension master stylist. My extension work can be both subtle and extreme. I love what some added fullness and/or length can do for a client’s confidence. I have also been trained as a scalp therapist, to help promote natural hair growth.  It is important to me that I can provide every client with a personal solution to any hair loss problem they may have. 

Around the salon, I can be found with a caffeinated beverage in my hand and a spring in my step (probably from all the caffeine). At home though, I am usually soaking up some vitamin D by the pool with my kindle in hand and cat on my lap.

Natalie

I have true passion for hair and people. I love to think outside of the box. I am so fortunate to be able to use my creativity while also helping my clients achieve looks beyond their imaginative dreams.  I am a total people person and I strive to give the best level of customer service possible. 

I graduated from Lytles Beauty College in 2018, and immediately began my career at Dolce Vita. I believe that continued education is crucial and since becoming licensed I have travelled across the country to attend numerous educational conferences and I have become certified in 5 different kinds of hair extensions as well as becoming a Certified Scalp Therapist. I believe that hair is the crown we wear everyday and it must be taken care of properly. Healthy hair is beautiful hair. I also specialize as a colorist and I love creating multidimensional hair color that best suits my clients goals.

I love sharing my knowledge of hair and scalp health with my clients and I look forward to taking you on a healthy hair journey. Follow me on my social media for before and after pictures of transformational hair journeys I’ve taken clients on.

Madi

Hello, My name is Madi Daniels. I’m a very passionate hairstylist and makeup artist. As a stylist I take pride in giving my clients Healthy, Strong, Beautiful hair. Being able to be an artist everyday is what drives my passion. Having an eye for meticulous details, to effortless low maintenance color, textured haircuts, and flawless face framing. I’m certified as a Scalp therapist as well as in 5 types of hair extensions. I love to help teach others how to get their “Pinterest” ready hair, services, styling, makeup and all.

After finishing beauty school I was striving to perfect my craft and client experience. My journey began working at Dolce Vita, alongside the salon owner, educator, mentor and hairstylist, Kimberly. I excelled through the salon’s Associate program and am now a level 1 stylist continuing to expand my knowledge and build a clientele.

Hikes, animals, working out and yoga are a few of my interests outside of the salon. On the weekends I enjoy getting lost on a good adventurous hike, playing with my German Shepard Tao, oh and don’t forget sipping a margarita! I look forward to meeting you! Check out my Instagram @m.a.d.hair for styling tutorials, color/cut inspo or just to get to know me a little more.

Alexis

I am a recent graduate of Lytle’s Beauty College. I am still continuing my education outside of school to keep up with new trends and techniques. I have had the opportunity to watch and recreate online education from Ashlee Norman and Nick Beradi. I plan on getting certified in Babe hair extensions. What is most rewarding about this career is being able to make people feel beautiful whether it’s touching their roots up, giving them a fresh cut, applying makeup, or a full color project. I love being able to enhance someone’s beauty and give them a boost in confidence. When I am not at the salon, I am usually at home with my dog, Benji, or hiking with my boyfriend.
