We are pleased to announce the addition of stylist Latonyia Hoy to The Mane Room beauty salon located inside the Presbyterian Village. Latonyia was born and raised in Fort Scott and has owned and operated a successful local salon for 21 years. After 17 years in her previous location, she was open to downsizing her workspace when the opportunity came along to join stylist Peggy Wunderly at the Mane Room. Latonyia is excited to meet new friends and work alongside Peggy. Latonyia has a passion for spending time with people, and she says that is what she loves most about her career. “I view my clients as members of my extended family. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love my clients.” She has had a passion for cosmetology for as long as she can remember – in fact, she began cutting her cousins’ hair when she was just 11 years old. Latonyia likes to remain current in techniques and trends and has spent many hours furthering her education. After traveling to the Helix Hair Academy in Sevierville, Tenn., she is the only stylist in the state of Kansas to offer the Helix Haircut, a specialty cutting treatment that provides body, curl, and volume without the use of chemicals. Latonyia also offers a full range of nail services, including manicures, pedicures and acrylic nails, and specializes in multi-dimensional hair color services. When Latonyia is not in the salon, she enjoys spending time with her family, her grown sons Nick and Austin Duvall, and her grandson Gauge. She also enjoys cooking, going to flea markets, traveling and decorating in her shabby-chic, vintage style. To book an appointment with Latonyia, call her at 620-644-8500, or book online at www.styleseat.com/latonyiahoy.
