“I had a great experience at Groovy Katz with Michelle, my stylist. I went in on my birthday as a gift from my parents. Michelle was sweet, friendly, and the perfect balance of casual and professional. Not to mention really quick and obviously great at her trade. My hair cut was perfect, and I left feeling wonderful. When I got home that same day, I was playing with my hair when I realized the color wasn’t exactly what I had in mind. I called Michelle. She was so understanding, kind, and accommodating. I was able to go back within two days of my original appointment. Michelle made time for me when she doesn’t normally work to spend another hour on my hair. I absolutely love my hair and the service with which I was provided. I will definitely be back to see Michelle!” – Anya Charles

“Michelle is wonderful. I always get the look I want with color or cut. Staff is great!” – Michelle Dillon

“Michelle is fantastic! She listens to what you want and delivers it. If there is an adjustment you’d like she makes it. She does a great job and is very personable which makes your appointment a fun time. Michelle has been coloring and cutting my hair since she first started at Groovy Katz Salon and I have never had a bad experience.” – Kathie Baker

I was amazed that after talking with Callie to explain how I wanted my hair, that she was able to pull off what I had envisioned. I would highly recommend Groovy Katz!” – Sandy Tuttle

“The same lady cut my hair for 25 years so going to a new place was a little uneasy. I spoke with Amy who set me up with Callie. Both were very professional and friendly. I think I found my home for the next 25 years.” – Scot Smith

“The environment was very friendly & comfortable so I was at ease which is important to me. But more important is the quality of service which was so great this day (my first visit). I am picky but when I got home and examined my hair in the mirror I could see how great it looked. I was referred by my adult daughter who goes there and she brings my granddaughter as well. My mother also goes there now so that is 3 generations of perfectionist women! I was already am Aveda lover. Our family is originally from a very big city and I feel like Groovy Katz is of that caliber.” – Cathy Scanlon

“Jordan does a beautiful job with my color. I just got violet red and it’s gorgeous. I’ve had issues with other stylists missing chunks of my hair when putting on color because my fairly long hair requires more color than one would think at first glance. Jordan covered it all and takes great care of me! I’ll never go anywhere else in Iowa City.” – Erin Sullivan

“One of the stylists, Stacy Vogelgesang, recently did my up-do for my wedding. She did a wonderful job and I got so many compliments

about it. She also does a superb job at styling and coloring your hair. Groovy Katz has a fun a calming environment and I will keep

coming back to the place to have Stacy do my hair!
