Dakota has been cutting, coloring, styling, and essentially being madly in love with doing hair for the past 9 years. She followed her heart to the Aveda Institute Columbus after experiencing a few years of college and has never looked back. She has proudly spent her entire career at Rendezvous.

She offers nearly every cosmetology service under the sun, and specializes in Fusion Hair Extensions, short hair cuts, mohawks, ombré color, balayage & color melting, and multi-dimensional haircolor. She enjoys dabbling in asymmetry, clipper design and hair etching. She especially loves to utilize her skills to help you achieve looks that are gender-bending, unexpected, or simply outside the norm: QUEER! But most of all, she thrives on making each and every person that sits in her chair feel like a rockstar, whether their hair is a neon rainbow or a natural brunette.

When she is not behind the chair at Rendezvous, you can find her working behind the scenes to help make the epic Columbus event DRAUMA happen, or relaxing with her partner and their dog, 4 cats, and chameleon.

” I do hair to make people feel good. I do it not to perpetuate the ridiculous belief that we are not good enough, but rather to aid people in self expression, individuality, and self confidence.
With each person that sits in my chair, I hope to not only make them feel GREAT, but to remind them that self love is most important; and anything they do to alter their aesthetic should be solely for their own expression, and not as a result of societal pressure and standards.”

Client Reviews about Dakota:

“..My stylist was quick and knew her way around an undercut. All of them I encountered were super friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating.  I can only speak on how well  and quickly my stylist (Dakota) was. But she did awesome and that’s what matters
They definitely got a returning customer today.” -Michelle


“I have been coming to rendezvous since I moved to Columbus in November and have always used Dakota. So glad to have found her. I have really thick, curly, coarse hair that is extremely hard for most stylists to work with.
After have a color consult with Dakota we decided to go for highlights and trims while I grow my hair back to the mid shoulder length I love it best at. Dakota has consistently given me beautiful cuts and gorgeous ash blonde highlights. I get compliments even two weeks later about how beautiful it looks and you absolutely cannot argue with that kind of lasting quality!
She always takes the time to listen to my hair goals and incorporates her magic and expertise. I have definitely seen the difference in the health and growth of my hair in just under a year.
If you’re looking for a great styling, check Dakota out, love that girl!” -Eliza

“Love this place. Everyone is so down to earth and Dakota is the absolute best!! She’s been doing my hair since i moved to Columbus more than 5 years ago ! Love my new lowlights in my blonde!” -Hollen

“Dakota has been coloring my hair for over a year now and she’s amazing at her job! She really listens to what I want and keeps me looking like a mermaid.” -Lucy

“Dakota is amazing! I absolutely love my rainbow hair! The shop atmosphere is great and you’re made to feel right at home, making my 7 hour stay so much fun! I’ll definitely be making the trip from the Falkland Islands to Columbus again, even if it’s just to visit the salon! I’ve been feeling pretty down lately but Dakota and the team at Rendezvous have given me my mojo back – so thank you.” -Layla
