Katie West is our Betty of the Week! She is one of the original stylists/pioneers that helped open our newest SoCo location. We are happy that she chose UB as her first salon home.

Katie excelled in our Associate Program under Erin Mutschler, who was one of Chelle’s former associates! Chelle, our owner and founder, considers Katie her grandchild for this reason. Even though Katie is an old soul at heart, she can have deep conversations and gives great advice. Her strong drive and ability to connect with others is what makes Katie such a valued friend and Betty family member!


Katie made it to a Level 4 at our salon within her first year of working as a full-time stylist, was Head of Education during her time at 38th Street, and was a valuable member of our Leadership Team!

“One of my favorite memories of Katie is our trip to NY together. We drank martinis, sang karaoke (well, mostly just me), and tried to get into a club we weren’t cool enough for. Here’s to you, Katie West! May you forever drink wine, play with babies, and continue to grow in our industry.” – Chelle Neff
