extension artist Casey Baumgartner
Styling hair is just in Casey's blood.
Her great-grandfather and grandfather were both barbers, and her mother did her family's hair all throughout Casey's childhood. So it's no wonder that Casey has had an interest in and curiosity about hair styling from a young age. Even in high school without any official training, friends trusted Casey's eye and attention to detail. They would book her for services from cuts to color (often times executed with aluminum foil and a toothbrush!), with confidence.
She's come a LONG way since those days! Today she holds certifications in 2 different types of extension application through Great Lengths (Thermal and Cold Fusion), has graduated from Duncan Bros. School of Hair Design, and put in her time as an assistant at Rhett & Co. in Tulsa, OK. In 2005 she broke out on her own as a Stylist and joined the team at Salon 111 in the adorable Jenks, OK.
Her move from working as a traditional hair stylist to an extension stylist was a natural one. Always one seeking a challenge, Casey wanted to take everything she'd learned and apply it to extension work. She spent years perfecting her skills in cut and color, adding to this an innate eye for tone, depth, and hair placement puts Casey in an elite group of stylists who can create undetectable extension styles.
When asked, there is no hesitation from Casey on her favorite part of creating an extension look for her clients, "Watching people light up when they see the result! It's amazing and so fulfilling to see how it can truly change how someone feels about themselves. Often times it satisfies lifelong insecurities."
When not creating ridiculously amazing hair, you'll find Casey hanging out with her family, in particular her husband, Scott, and son, Lane. They might be at a live music event, working on a DIY project around their house, or just playing with their adorable dog, Brownstone.
