About Small Talk
Katharine Healy – Owner / Stylist
Katharine has been in the salon industry for over 16 years. For most of her career, as a stylist and salon manager in downtown New Haven. 6 years ago Katharine opened Small Talk Salon in Hamden with the goal of providing an intimate and personalized salon experience. With a focus on modern techniques paired with industry leading products, Katharine strives to create a comfortable and personlaized experience for every client.
The entire Small Talk Salon team is dedicated to providing the most for our clients. We are active in the continuing education programs through a number of our affiliate companies such as R+Co, Redken, and Arrojo. Our staff’s certifications include: Klix & Balmain extensions, Trissola Keratin, Arrojo American Wave, Advanced Masters Haircutting Course with celebrity stylist Nick Arrojo, and countless advanced coloring technique classes with Schwarzkopf, Goldwell, and Lakme color lines. Our stylist Rhiannan is an R+Co educator and travels to help educate and train other R+Co affiliate salons.
We also do our best to stay involved in the Hamden, CT community. We are active members in the Hamden Chamber of Commerce and since we have opened we are proud to host an annual Holiday Toy drive and Kids Cut-a-Thon. Small Talk Salon is honored to support countless local and state based charities through raffle donations, program sponsorships, and monetary donations as a way to support and engage in our local community.
