TOP KNOT STYLIST
K O R T N E E V A N C L E A V E
My name is Kortnee VanCleave and I am so excited you're here!
At my private salon suite it is ALL ABOUT YOU! My passion for hair and people is married beautifully into one cozy spot designed for you to come in, relax and be completely pampered! From cuts, colors, special event up styling or a simple blow out, my goal is to have your troubles melt away and walk back into the world with a full tank of confidence!
My passion for hair is second to none - Some might even call me a hair nerd because of how compelled I am to constantly learn new things to add to your experience at your appointment, such as new techniques, services or the newest product/color line to ensure your confidence in a successful journey to get to your #hairgoals.
Each and every appointment starts with a thorough consultation to ensure we are both on the same page, a customized cut/color/extension experience, and is finished out with an amazing blow out and style.

RAW artistry showcase
Featured artist - Top Knot Stylist
RAW is a company that helps support local artists by hosting live shows to get their name and work out there. RAW found my Instagram and reached out to me and asked to feature my work on the runway and, man! Was it was such a blast! Getting to meet fellow local artists, style hair how I wanted to and have my models showcase it on the runway was a dream come true!
Featured article - Top Knot Stylist
Voyage Dallas reached out to Top Knot Stylist in June of 2018 and asked if they could feature me in their newest series "Trail Blazers - Rewriting the Narrative". The series is about women successfully running their own business and how I have implemented my work ethic, dedication and passion for what I do, everyday to grow my own business.
Shoots Model Magazine featured a handful of photos taken at a collaborative photoshoot, and we made the cover!

Q: My hair feels dull and weighed down... What can I do to help?
A: It could be product build up which would call for a good clarifying shampoo to get rid of that weighed down feeling and a deep conditioning treatment to help give it some life again. It could also be time for a trim depending on how long it has been since the last time you got it done.
Q: How can I get the life of my color to last longer?
A: Invest in a good color protecting shampoo and conditioner. You are paying good money to get your hair colored, so don't strip it with cheap shampoos and conditioners from the grocery stores.
Q: How often should I wash my hair?
A: It really depends on your hair type, but definitely not everyday if you can help it. If your hair gets oily pretty quick, there are products to help prolong your last wash such as dry shampoo, baby powder or a dry texture spray. Try to go as long as you can without washing, but also don't go too long because you don't want to be the stinky greasy one.
