Stylist

I have been with Elite for 5 years now and I've never looked back! I love being behind my chair and making people feel beautiful within themselves. I am a master of balayage and love color! Highlighting in any form is my favorite service, but I truly love it all! I also manage the online presence for The Vibe. I love growing with these amazing ladies and can't wait to see you in my hair or while you are visiting the shop.

I have been an Elite Team member for 6 years. I am a creative stylist and master of color. I am the social media marketer for the salon and also carry a role  on the creative Vibe team. 

I am a passionate cosmetology instructor at a local hair school. I really love mentoring new students in the industry. Being a part of an industry that is always evolving and ever changing keeps my perspective and approach fresh. 

 My favorite thing to do behind the chair is anything color. I love to customize my client's look to match their personality and lifestyle .

I specialize in makeup artistry. I enjoy creating a natural or dramatic look for my guests. 

I tell everyone I know that I have the best job and truly love going to work everyday with my amazing team. I love creating relationships with our clients and making them feel their best. It is definitely the most rewarding part of my career!

I am a small town girl from Pepperell, MA. I love to help people feel more confident and beautiful in their own skin. 

Having known from a young age I desired a career that would show off my creative and artistic side, I decided to go to Nashoba Valley Technical School, with a concentration in Cosmetology. 

I have been a licensed cosmetology professional for 12 years and I specialize in personalized haircuts (pixies and short hair are my specialties), natural looking color options, highlights, and so much more! 

I look forward to meeting you and working together to create your new look.

Skylar Cutter

E-commerce Director for The Vibe

I live in Hampton NH with my big family of 8 and our 2 pups who we love dearly.

The past two years I have been traveling around the U.S. in my tiny house on wheels, Pearl, seeing all of the beauty that this planet has to offer while meeting so many amazing souls along the way. 

My passion has always been people and just recently, fashion! I started my own clothing business this year, Earth & Skye Clothing. My favorite part about creating unique wearable art for people is the way it makes them feel. Clothing should make you feel uplifted and empowered and here at Elite Hair Design and The Vibe that is our main goal! 

Through my travels I have discovered many of our new vendors at The Vibe! I love finding different styles and pieces so there is truly something for everyone. I manage our online boutique and also co-manage our social media pages. Be sure to check us out!

Mallory York 

Customer Service/Assistant

I'm a new graduate of Nashoba Valley Tech and a licensed cosmetologist. I joined cosmetology my freshman year of high school after admiring the industry my whole life. 

I grew up in the arts, being a dancer my whole life, and I just love how this industry allows me to be able to express myself through my own work and passion.

I plan on continuing my education in cosmetology by continuing taking classes as well as learning from my fellow stylists. I will also be attending Middlesex Community College to pursue a study in psychology. 

I am so honored to be a part of this wonderful Elite team!

Lois A. Cutter

Owner/Founder of Elite Hair Design & The Vibe

Being the youngest of three girls, I had my challenges already laid out for me. Being seen and heard in the chaos of being raised by a single Mom has filled my soul with grit and determination. I was taught to grab life by the shoulders and shake out every possible ounce of it as I move through all the beginnings. I don’t see endings, just a new beginning and a way of looking at what has taken place and moving on from that point, without hesitation or doubt. 

 

I am the grateful mother of four amazing humans who constantly remind me of what matters most. Watching them manifest their own dreams and desires is on the top of my list of favorites! 

 

With every ounce of my being, I enjoy seeing others grow and stretch their limits beyond where they thought possible. Walking along side a team of talented professionals is one of my favorite things to do. I love mentoring as much as the air I breathe. I take nothing or no one for granted. I encourage myself and my team to embrace Self Care and Love individually so we can share that love with others we meet. 

 

I founded Elite with a mindset of integrity and by keeping the importance of relationships and appreciation for others in the forefront of my mind. Never wavering or doubting it’s success. I just knew in my heart and soul that it would be amazing... and that it is! Always evolving. Always growing and stretching. 

 

Building the foundation blocks of Elite has been a wild ride. There are constant challenges, dips and blunders. At times, failing forward but never looking back. We are wildly successful and continue to grow in ways I always imagined when the thought of Elite was merely just a thought. 

 

Watching us emerge into a new space with open arms, we welcome all walks of life to feel safe and certain that they will feel special and loved while inside our space. Our common goal centers around providing the ultimate experience for our guests. 

 

With all our moments, both big and small, we stand taller now than ever before. We can’t wait to meet you!
