A hairstylist at the Hair Station, Katy Labbe features cutting, styling, coloring, waxing, beard trims, and nails. She notes, “Being a hairstylist is the only thing I have ever wanted to be. I went to hair school straight out of high school and was able to start my career at 19 years old.” Katy says that some of the favorite parts of her career are continuing to grow as a stylist and, “Helping people feel great about themselves.”
Looking for a change, she moved to the LA area to challenge herself as a stylist. The move also brought her closer to family in Turner and Auburn. Katy enjoys the balance of city and close community found in the LA area and the business growth in the downtown
She is passionate about the mission of the SPCA and animal welfare and each year at the holidays, she and friends select an organization or family to support, saying, “I like being able to help out others that are in need.”
Her future personal vision is to, “See myself married, having a family of my own, maybe a dog or two and working as a stylist at the Hair Station.” And her hope for the LA area is to erase the stigma that Lewiston Auburn has been given and have more people realize it is a great community. Katy notes, “It would be good to encourage more young people to move to the area and start working and opening businesses.”
