Meet CAT&Lou

The idea behind CAT&Lou started years ago.  Thanks to a mutual friend, what began as a local contact in the beauty industry, gradually evolved into coworkers, business friends, and has since become a close friendship and partnership.  Over the years Lindsey and Allie discovered a shared goal to one day own a salon, they just had to be patient for the right time and perfect location.  Part of what makes CAT&Lou so special is the combination of two very different people coming together to create an experience that embodies their personalities and ideals.

Our Vision

With the establishment of CAT&Lou Salon we wanted to create a unique space, a sanctuary, that is not only comfortable but also inviting.  Our overall vision was to develop a salon that was spacious, beautiful, and full of talented stylists.  We embody a culture that is nothing but positive, and an atmosphere that inspires our stylists as well as our clients.  We want to create a peaceful, relaxing escape for our guests, leaving them feeling recharged and beautiful!

Our Mission

We feel education is of the utmost importance in order to stay inspired.  At CAT&Lou we offer frequent opportunities for our team to continue to grow, and then in return, share that knowledge and creativity with our guests.  Through product knowledge and direction, our goal is to pass on the importance of home haircare in addition to salon appointments, so that our clients will feel confident with their hair aspirations and results.  We strive for each of our guests to have the very best experience at CAT&Lou.

Our Salon

CAT&Lou is located in the heart of the Clifton neighborhood. This local, lively area adds so much to the character and energy of the salon. Our building was previously the home to a rectory of the neighboring church. When designing CAT&Lou, we felt it was important to maintain the character of the building and incorporate the feel of the area, while also adding a modern touch. This building is our happy place, a home away from home. We can only hope our guests feel that same energy and love it as much as we do!
