Addie Syers

Yo hablo español

Maleigha graduated Hays Academy of Hair Design in 2016 and has been working behind the chair with clients ever since! She is a Great Bend native but has resided in Wichita for the last 5 years! Thick hair is her jam! Maleigha loves blinding of all sorts, doing any type of vivid colors and she LOVES cutting hair (yes that includes curly cuts too!!) Education is a top priority for her; getting my hands on any class she can! In her free time you can catch her outside walking the trails or at her favorite store… GOODWILL

Addie joined the Bare Roots team in June of 2023. She graduated from Paul Mitchell the school Wichita in 2019 and has been behind the chair since. She has since found a passion for education and loves traveling to new places to learn from top colorists in the country and also brings back that knowledge to share with her team. With almost 5 years of experience behind the chair she strives to give her guests a one of a kind experience and helping each and every person achieve their hair goals. She specializes in anything blonding, lived in color, and vivid hair color! When she isn't in the salon you may find her spending time with her family and 3 cats. Reading a book or taking care of her dozens of houseplants.


Kaitlyn Blackburn

Kaitlyn joined the Bare Roots Salon & Spa Team in February of 2023. She is a graduate from Cowley County Community College receiving her Associates in Applied Science and Cosmetology in May of 2022. Since then, she has been working with clients and doing what she loves! Kaitlyn loves doing all things blonde whether it be highlights, all over blonding, balayage, etc.! During her career, Kaitlyn has also developed a love for all things skin care and provides relaxing facials and treatments for her clients. Her absolute favorite part about this career is being able to make people feel comfortable and beautiful in their hair and skin by enhancing and taking care of the features clients already have to give them that confidence boost they may need!! Turning that chair around and having their face light up in excitement and joy is by far her favorite part of the day! When Kaitlyn is not changing looks behind the chair or relaxing clients in the spa, she is most likely at home crafting and refurbishing items.
