Our Stylists

Cathy Collins

Hi my name is Cathy Collins.

I grew up in a small town in N.E. Ore.  Called Enterprise, (near the beautiful Wallowa Lake) growing up I spent a lot of my time in my mother’s salon.  At five yrs. old I was doing combs & brushes in the shampoo bowl, later cleaning, and always towels.  As I got older my mother hired me to do the hairpiece for their clients.  That was a lot of fun! After I graduated high school I followed my mother’s footsteps and attended the same beauty college she had went to 15 years prior, (Phagan’s College of Beauty in Portland, Ore.) Luckily some of the instructor’s that my mother had were still there!  They took me under their wing and taught me well.

I graduated with the highest grades in the state of Ore. On Nov. 20 1975, 100% in practical and 96% in written.  I COULDN’T BELIEVE IT!!! Then I went to work with my mom for about 7 years, before her health got bad and wouldn’t allow her to work.  I then took over the business for 18 years or so.  In 2001 we needed to move to Boise for my husband’s job.  My oldest daughter had finished beauty school so she could take over Grandma’s shop.  I started at Boise Hair Company in July 2001, been there for 14 years now.  I specialize in backcombing, blow dry’s, roller sets, and especially perms.  I love my senior citizens- they have become family to me.  After 39 years of doing hair I still love it.  Hope to see you soon!


Hi! My name is Kelli.

I am a native to Boise and I love it here!

I graduated from Headmasters/Toni and Guy Hairdressing Academy in 2010.

I’ve been a cosmetologist for 4 ½ years, and I’ve been at Boise Hair Company for three years.

I’ve worked with Matrix, Redken, TiGi, and Paul Mitchell Color, as well as several other product lines.

Hair is a form of art for me.

It can be a challenge, but it’s fun and I love it!  I believe hair is your best accessory!


I went to cosmetology school in 2004 at Capelli Institute of Hair in Utah.

I’ve worked at Boise Hair Company for six years now.

My specialties are haircuts and colors.

But I also enjoy perming and waxing.
