Hair Designers

Kim Sartori

I am co-owner and designer here at Studio 305. I have been here since 1990 and have enjoyed being part of our growth from a 4 station hair salon to a full-service salon and spa. What I love most about being a hair designer are my guests. Being able to make someone’s day and making them feel good about themselves is the greatest opportunity anyone could have.

Kathy McCarthy

As co-owner of our studio, I love watching our team grow and make people feel great about themselves on the inside as well as the outside. I am excited to begin specializing in a new way to help people feel good about themselves:  addressing an issue that many face – thinning hair. I can camouflage thinning hair and patchy hair loss through wigs and hairpieces.

Rachel Popadowski

I have worked at Studio 305 and been in the beauty industry since 2000.  I specialize in short hair cuts and foiling techniques but enjoy all aspects of cutting, coloring and styling! What I Love most about my job is the many people I come in contact with on a daily basis. I love all the different ways I can transform each individual style for each personality. I also love to do natural makeup, detailing and enhancing the natural beauty of a person.

I can remember back when I was a little girl always wanting to be a hairdresser! I later followed that childhood passion and went to beauty school. I have been doing hair for many years and have truly loved every minute of it! I have the best job. I get to make people feel good about themselves and that to me is one of the many rewarding things about being a hairstylist! I love to have fun!

I have been a full time stylist and makeup artist since 2005. I value my clients and try to achieve the best look for their needs. I love to do total makeovers and big changes. I enjoy working with the team at Studio 305 and how we come together for group consultations.

I attended Paul Mitchell The School right after high school because I was so eager to start my career as a cosmetologist. I worked at Studio 305 as an assistant while going to school and then became a Hair Designer after going through their internship program. I am very thankful and happy to be working with a terrific and encouraging team. The artistic side of hair designing and knowing I can be a day maker to my guests, making them happy and confident, makes me proud to be a cosmetologist.

I have been lucky enough to be with Studio305 since 2012, and have loved every moment of it. After graduating from Paul Mitchell the School Tinley Park, I knew I wanted to work with and represent the Paul Mitchell name. Luckily, I came across Studio 305 and absolutely fell in love! I’m extremely honored to be at a salon where I can express my creativity, while growing with the industry. Hair has been my passion since I was 5 years old, and will continue to be for the rest of my life. How amazing to be able to love going to work everyday, and be excited for what the day will bring!

While I was a senior at Lockport Township High School, I was a part time student at Capri Beauty College continuing on full time after graduation. I graduated Capri in December of 2013, fulfilling my dream of becoming a Cosmetologist. I immediately started my internship at Studio 305, completing it in July of 2014. I absolutely love what I do here at Studio 305. I am so incredibly lucky to work with such an amazing team doing what I love. I look forward to many years as a Hairdresser.
