British born I strived to create a space uniquely mine. A colorful, creative place with a feel of “home” (England for me) while being appealing and comfortable for the residents of Washington. High Maintenance Spa & Salon is the product of this desire. My dream could not be complete without the talented technicians that work alongside me. Breaking away from the stereotypical intimidating salon environment the team at HM have enabled me to establish a salon that is inviting and friendly, and not at all daunting for both the established Salon guest and a newbie experimenting with first time treatments.

Katrina's journey with beauty began in her grade school bathroom. Using her mothers makeup (shhhhhh) she gave makeovers to classmates, and thus her love affair was born.
Trained at The Salon Professional Academy (now Summit Salon Academy) and a certified L'oreal Professionel Expert Stylist, she is an avid believer of on-going education. Regularly attending trainings to master her craft, she is committed to constantly learning new techniques and trends.
Katrina prides herself on her natural attention to detail. Her specialties include: sun kissed highlights, ravishing reds, and perfectly tousled beach waves. She takes time to connect with her clients, and believes that the better you get to know someone the better you can truly accommodate their needs.
Katrina sees the beauty in everyone she meets, and strives to make sure each client leaving her chair will see and feel it too. She truly enjoys what she does! So much that she even misses it when she's on vacation.
