Natalie, Owner & Professional Groomer
I began my career in Austin, Texas in 2005. I went on to manage both corporate and private salons over the next 18 years, including Hair of the Dog. I 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 loved, or watch it close. It was an easy decision to make. Many of our customers have been coming here since Hair of the Dog opened, and I wanted to make sure those customers had a salon they can count on. I also wanted to create a salon that catered to the needs of the pet, as well as us, the groomers. 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 joyful place for the dogs, and I strive to keep it that way.
Hobbies: SHW Powerlifter, painting, antiques, oddities, ethology, art.
