Owner

People often ask me how I came up with the name “Karma”.  I have been in this industry for almost 15 years, in that time, I have seen more people who are consistently trying to take care of everyone around them without taking time for themselves.  They often come to me totally drained, mentally and physically.   My job, as I saw it, was to help them take some time out for themselves.  For me to listen; and for them to relax, rejuvenate, recuperate, meditate, or whatever you want to call it…..sometimes, just to cry and be heard.  Yes, my job is more than just fixing hair and polishing nails.   When I opened Karma, I wanted to create a place where you can come, not be judged or snubbed, and just relax--however you like to do it.  I have built a fantastic team, with whom I now consider my family.  We have undeniable chemistry, and we all want to create the same feeling for you when you enter.  We are building relationships with our clients here.  My hope is that you would feel the same about us.

Cosmetologist & Salon Lead
 

I grew up in New York and was captivated by an amazing hairstylist; my mother. You could say that hairstyling is in my blood. I moved to Southern Pines in 2006 and decided to attend the Aveda Institute in Chapel Hill in 2008. I was very fortunate to train with some of the most talented stylists via Vidal Sassoon over the last 8 years.  I have attended numerous hair cutting courses through the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Seattle Washington, London England, and New York City.  I was also extremely lucky to attend the “level 10 blonde” course with Sara Pestella. It should be every hairstylist's ambition to attend her course. I am happily married to my best friend since 2014 and I am the proud mother of our son Luca. I am extremely excited to be a part of the Karma team!!!  View my online portfolio here:  https://www.instagram.com/hair_daniellemeza/

Originally from Hanover, PA, Kathe began her career in the '70s where she worked for Salon Nicholas in Fort Myers, Florida for 10 years. Kathe trained with Vidal Sassoon in London and assisted with numerous hair shows with the Sassoon team. Kathe was introduced to AVEDA in the early '80s and had the pleasure to meet the founder Horst Rechelbacher. Kathe applied her AVEDA training as a mentor to other stylists at Salon Nicholas. During the early '90s, Kathe moved to North Carolina where she opened Taylor David Salon. It was important for Kathe to continue her Sassoon and AVEDA training while owning her salon so that she could not only further her education but also so she could pass her knowledge onto her own team. March 2021, Kathe made the tough decision to close the Taylor David Salon. However, she found herself a new team/family at Karma Spa Lounge and Beauty Bar where she will continue to mentor and train new and upcoming stylists. She is excited to be part of the Karma family.

I did my apprenticeship at Karma under the guidance of a very talented and professional salon team. I love changing up my look as a form of self expression and confidence, so I strive to give my clients that same experience. Whether it's a haircut, refreshing highlight, or a fun fashion color, I enjoy giving clients a change that'll make them fall back in love with themselves.
