About the Salon & Spa
We started our adventure here at KJ Nutt & Friends in 1977. We have always been a local salon that supports other small local businesses in the Greater Lafayette area. Our community is so important to us. We support Group Homes For Children, LUM, YWCA, Home With Hope, March Of Dimes, Surf Center Inc., and Lafayette Transitional Housing. We truly believe in working together and supporting each other without judgment.
From the moment you walk in our door until the time you leave, we strive to make your visit warm and welcome, with a little quirk of course. Everyone from all walks of life is welcome. We are handicap accessible with plenty of parking at the back of our salon. We are a tight-knit family here and we each bring something unique to the table. So from our family to yours, welcome to the Nutt house. Where YOU are always what matters most.
KJ has over 40 years of experience under her shears and she's not done yet. KJ could tell you about the national women’s styling competition or multiple state men’s cutting competitions she has won, but that isn't what's important to her. She just loves what she does! She says watching her clients develop and own their style in her chair is an amazing experience. KJ took a leap of faith decades ago when she decided that being a hairstylist was her passion and where her future lie. She couldn't be happier with the choice!! Her clients give her life and she wouldn't trade that for anything.

Omar also has worked for Zotos inc, teaching for bain de terre products. His specialty being perms, color and cutting for them. He tends to go for more education than most stylists. Omar loves animals and has a small zoo at his house. He is a man of much trivia and helps KJ remember what movie she went to last week.
