Cassie Blais




Originally from the city of Westerville, Cassie has loved experimenting with hair since she was a little girl. Bored with the traditional route of going to a traditional college, Cassie was drawn to cosmetology school. She has formal training from the Aveda Institute Columbus and Aveda Lifestyle Salon, as well as classes with platform artists Jon Reyman, Gino Chapman, and Daniel Benoit. 

Her choice to work at Akada was simple. She was drawn to the ethos and atmosphere carefully crafted by founder Anjel McLaughlin, to create and preserve healthy communication with the team as well as with her clients. The detail oriented training and rigorous education of the high end product lines were also factors in her decision. 

Cassie’s philosophy is to work everyday to bring out the creativity in her clients’ personalities without pushing them too far out of their comfort zone. She loves every client challenge, from a spunky style to a shaved head, Cassie enjoys it all. She is constantly on the look out for new trends and techniques. Looking to her fellow stylists as well as the web for inspiration, she primarily draws her creativity from Instagram and Pinterest influencers. 

She looks to build long-term relationships with her clients, rather than just single experiences. Her primary goal as a stylist is to help her clients feel confident so their new style can enhance their appearance and accurately reflect their personality.
