Owner, Operator, and Hair Stylist
Peggy has over 23 years of experience cutting, coloring and styling hair. She has worked in Hawaii and on the mainland. She considers herself a very down-to-earth woman, enjoying salsa dancing, cooking, the outdoors and most of all, spending time with family and friends. She treats people how she wants to be treated and believes that what you give to the world is what comes back to you. Being present, loving, respectful, genuine and kind to others gives her the most pleasure and joy. This is one of the reasons she became a hair stylist – to spread happiness.
Peggy believes education is the most powerful way to service her clients. The hair industry changes so much every year and staying current through education and training, is one of her top priorities. In the last 23 years, Peggy has attended advanced training at least twice a year at the best hair academies. These classes often require her to take time away from family and servicing her clients, but she is extremely passionate about learning new techniques, methods and products that can be brought back to the salon. Some of the classes she has attended are:
Vidal Sassoon (Precise Haircutting and Color)
Toni and Guy (Hair Cutting and Color)
Goldwell (Hair Color)
Fremesi (Hair Color)
Great Lengths Hair Extensions
Gene Juarez Academy and Advanced Training
Evolve Volumizer and Hair Extensions
With her passion for the arts and her desire for self-expression, Catie found her artistic outlet in hair. Growing up in Carlsbad, California the free-spirited culture developed her creative yet urban style. Seeking a similar atmosphere, Catie moved to Oahu where she enrolled at The Paul Mitchell School Of Design. During and upon her graduation, Catie extended her passion by assisting Peggy Stauss at Satori Salon. “To be the best, you must learn from and surround yourself with the best!”
To Catie, the most liberating feeling is having her client leave happy, relaxed, and confident. When she’s not at the salon you can find her on the north shore free diving, making art, or lost in nature.
“My favorite part about being in this industry is that irreplaceable feeling you receive when you’re getting pampered. It brings me back to being a little girl and playing dress-up with my friends. You get to be whoever you want to be that day and always leave the salon feeling so special.”

Back in Chicago, Summer cut, colored, and styled hair at the award-winning Siren Salon, winning the Top 5 Chicago Salon during her time there.
