My name is Kelsey Pate. I am from West Blocton, Al. I studied at Paul Mitchell the school of Birmingham to receive my cosmetology license. From there I was recruited directly on at Hair Impressions to work for the owner of the Paul Mitchell school that I attended. I have more of a passion for hair color and cutting and that’s what I have built most of my clientele around. I would love to meet you and help you with any struggles you have with your hair!


Hey. My name is Lauren. I grew up in Las Vegas and have resided in Tuscaloosa about 15 years. I’m staying! I have been in the hairapy industry for about 11 years. I have had extensive color and hair design education over the years. I switched to Paul Mitchell from 10 years with Redken in February and I am having a blast with learning and growing with this brand. I feel that my gifts lie in corrective and transformative color. I love creative coloring with the fashion line PopXg. If you were to ask my favorite trends for cut and color right now… my answer is curtain bangs and shags. And block coloring, in every form! It’s not just hair to me.


Hi, my name is Lexi. I was raised in Tuscaloosa. I’ve been a cosmetologist for almost 3 years now! I graduated from the wonderful Aveda Institute in Hoover. I’ve trained and worked with Redken color for over 2 years. I’m so happy to have joined the Paul Mitchell team this past May! Color is my passion and no challenge is too small
