Ketmanee Whitlock

Ketmanee Whitlock is a dog mom, wife to LoneHawk Whitlock, lover of nature and animals. She enjoys playtime with her pups and sharing her love of continued growth and education to her hair community. Ketmanee (pronounced Get-man-EE) has been in the beauty industry for over 15 years. She started her career out on the west coast in Southern California and moved to East Tennessee in December of 2015. For 3 1/2 years she maintained her clientele in both states and is now full-time here in Johnson City TN.

 

She brings with her an extensive knowledge of color, color correction, hair cutting, non-surgical hair replacement and she is an extensions specialist. Her accolades include multiple certifications with the Aveda corporation, The Goonies, the Sassoon Academy, NBR™, Natural Beaded Rows hair extensions and HairSkeen hair replacement systems.

 

Over the years, Ketmanee has developed a allergy to haircolor ingredients, therefore she is passionate about cleaner, less toxic beauty products. She uses O&M CøR color, an ammonia, PPD and resorcinol free line. She's a holistic minded stylist and feels that beauty should not cost you your health.

Haley Meister

Haley Meister graduated from Premier Cosmetology Academy in 2019 and started her hair career in downtown Kingsport before joining us at Edify in 2021. She finished her apprenticeship with Ketmanee in June 2022 and is now a fully commissioned stylist. She continues to grow her skill set and create beautiful work behind the chair.

When she’s not working, she is probably snuggled up watching Netflix with her cat and her partner. Haley loves music, thrifting, and plants. She also enjoys things from before her time; Labyrinth is her all time favorite movie, and she loves classic rock.

Haley is meticulous with her work and is proving to be a very solid stylist. She enjoys creating lived in blonde looks, and loves anything dimensional. She also loves shags and mullets. Her goal is to spread love to each client, and make them feel as good on the inside as they look on the outside.
