Natalie, Owner & Professional Groomer
Natalie began her career in 2005 in Austin Texas. She went on to manage both corporate and private salons over the next 18 years including Hair of the Dog since 2017. She then purchased Hair of the Dog in 2021. "The previous owner came to me with a short sell offer. It was either buy the salon I love, or watch it close. It was easy to make the decision to take on ownership of this established salon. Many of our customers have been coming here since Hair of the Dog opened almost two decades ago. I also wanted to create a salon that catered to the needs of the groomer which is rare in our industry. Our business plan prioritizes progressive ideas surrounding labor issues as well as the overall experience of the dogs in our care. We want to create an experience for the dogs that caters to their specific needs. Hair of the Dog has always been a fun place for the dogs, and I strive to keep it that way".
