“Love what you do, do what you love.” This is exactly how I feel about my profession. I love the hair industry, especially when it comes to color, highlights, and balayage. I enjoy the chemistry part as well as the artistry side of it. I got my certification for Cosmetology in 1999 and have been the Illusion Salon owner since 2011. I specialize in color, highlights, and balayage. I’m also a certified Brazilian Blowout stylist. My passion for hair has driven me to become better every day through continuing education and attending hair shows. I’m constantly learning new techniques, finding newer and better hair products, and providing great experiences for my guests. One of the many reasons I enjoy doing hair is meeting people. I love seeing my guests, getting to know them, building a relationship, and hearing their stories. Everybody has a story and it’s so fascinating for me to listen to their stories and share that connection with them. There is nothing better than going to work to be creative and be able to make my guests feel their best, brighten up their day, and put a smile on their face. That is my idea of a great day! So if you’d like to look your best, have amazing hair, and feel like a million dollars come see me. I’m looking forward to meeting you!
I joined the Illusion Salon family in September 2018 and have been loving every minute since! Each client has different necessities and I’m here to give them exactly what their hair needs. I have a huge passion for up-dos, braids and overall special occasion hairstyles. Hair color transformations are always fun but if you’re tired with dealing with frizz I can help with that too, for I am Brazilian Blowout certified.

I have always been passionate about hair and makeup. I have been transforming hair for years now and I love the combination of art and science and how there is always more to learn. Since I’ve been doing hair professionally I’ve realized my favorite part is getting to know my clients. Learning about each client’s lifestyle and personality really helps to create a custom look for each individual. As well as coloring and cutting, other services I offer are vivid fashion colors, extensions, balayage, color corrections, waxing, Brazilian blowouts, special occasion/special fx makeup as well as airbrush makeup. I’m looking forward to creating your perfect look! Check out some of my work on Instagram: @hairbykadiehays
I started my journey in the beauty industry at Paul Mitchell the School Dallas, where I graduated with honors. I have a huge passion for vibrant colors, balayage, and transformations. I am certified in DiBiase hair extensions including tape-ins, micro-beads, and fusion hair extensions. I am also certified in the Brazilian Blowout! My goal is to make every person who sits in my chair to feel and look their best while protecting the integrity of their hair.
