Taylor Hunnicutt
(She/They)

Owner of Nine Keys, Stylist & Oracle Reader
Follow them on IG: @redfloralfox

My name is Taylor and I am the owner of Nine Keys. I have been doing hair for 9 years and love to do everything behind the chair. My clients are my favorite thing about my job, and I’m so thankful to get to know them and live life with them!

I was inspired to start a metaphysical shop after going into a few spaces in Washington state and seeing that you can experience magick in a very grounded and approachable way. Before that time, I had been reading oracle cards for friends and family, but being empowered by the spiritual community made me want to be a larger part of it.

With my Aquarian mind, I couldn’t choose between the two, so I obviously had to combine them and create something unique for myself and others. Afterall, hair and card reading are both so personal, as well as an exchange of energy that feels very similar. I cannot wait for you all to see the space I’ve created with the help of my intuitive community. The spiritual glow-up is an amazing journey.

My Books Are Recently Reopened and  I am Still Offering Readings to new and Current Clientele.

Walter has been behind the chair for 5 years now and loves every day of it. Her specialty is bright and unusual hair colors, but can handle any project thrown at her. With a passion for product, she can recommend something to fix almost any hair problem. You can usually find her spending $10 on a latte or at a crust punk house show.

Sarah Waugh
(She/Her)

Stylist & Makeup Artist
Follow her on IG: @sarahjeanetteartistry

Sarah’s passion for hair and makeup stems from the fact that it is an amazing tool of self expression. What makes work meaningful for her is the ability to help others to show on the outside who they are within. Sarah is a well trained stylist of 10 years that can create beautiful hair, but believes the experience should be more than that. Although her clients give their trust to use that realm of expression to make them shine their brightest, her mission includes them knowing she cares about the person under the hair just as much. When not in the salon, Sarah loves to travel and spend time exploring nature. Ask her about food, film or music and be prepared for great conversation.

Jupiter Rei
(They/Them)

Stylist & Hair Wizard
Follow them on IG: @hair_magickk_

Rei has been behind the chair for 9 years and is your hair wizard! Their favorite services are wild fantasy colors and alternative, rebellious haircuts. Rei believes that once you’re in their chair the experience is more than just hair, it’s about seeing the person becoming and loving who they see in the mirror. Talk them up about opossums, dead things, music and movies, and show your inner ghoul with them!

Follow her on IG: @Torrie.Hart.Hair

Torrie is a cutting specialist whose focus is on curls and razor work. She loves creating whimsical haircuts custom fit to each unique head of hair; she is always down for big transformation!  Torrie has a passion for haircare and loves to help clients understand their hair better and rethink their routine.  When she’s not behind the chair you can find her at music shows, crystal shopping, or having snuggle time with her cats.

Ciara Jean
(She/They)

Stylist & Vivids Specialist

Follow her on IG: @ciarashairmagic

Ciara was born in Florida but raised here in Minnesota, and has spend most of their 14 years making magic here in Minnesota and some of the most recent years (2017-2020) in Florida. That being said, they're happy to be back in the Twin Cities indefinitely!

I live and sleep hair, and absolutely love creating unique shapes or colors for each guest; making them feel like a work of art! Some of their  favorite things to do are vivid colors, red heads, traditional balayage, and fun and formal styles. Recently they've started to dive into teaching color and platform artist work as well! Ciara is very passionate about the hair industry and that reflects in their excitement and passion behind the chair. 

When they're not behind the chair, you’ll find her outside in the summer, creating/crafting or watching scary movies with her hubby. Few fun facts: they've worked in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, have 11 tattoos, and live with five cats!

Maddy Cook
(She/Her)

Stylist, Makeup Artist, & Glitter Extrordinare

Follow her on IG: @glitterbymaddy

Maddy's our newest stylist at Nine Keys and recently graduated from our apprenticeship program. Though she's been working behind the chair for a little under three years, her talent and passion quickly exceeds her seniority, and she can deliver lovely vivids and textured haircuts at an excellent price-point. Her favorite things to do are "party colors" in vivacious shades, cool and unique haircuts, sparkly makeup, and everything in-between! When she's not cutting hair, she's playing Stardew Valley, hanging out with her cat Rudy, trying new makeup looks, and leaving glitter wherever she goes!
