Colleen “Bettie” Baker (SHE/HER) is a stylist at  AKEMI (ah-chem-ee) salon studio on N Williams. Drawn to the Sirens of the silver screen and the blonde bombshells of old Hollywood, she began to develop a passion for glamour and beauty. As a lover of the arts, form and technique are the core of her services. She tailors each look to the person who will be wearing it. An educator and stylist of over 20 years, she enjoys helping her clients understand how to maintain their hair at home. She offers styling sessions to those who might be new to hairstyling, those who want to brush up, or learn how to create new looks. She understands every client is unique, and strives to highlight their intrinsic beauty by considering their face shape and coloring. Her goal for you is to walk away from her chair feeling beautiful, authentic and empowered. In her free time, Bettie identifies as a queer woman and spends her time with her fiancé and three older children designing and updating her home and yard. She enjoys cooking, entertaining, traveling and red lipstick!
