Claudia McKibbin
Senior Stylist 

Born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia, my very early inspiration to do hair came from my mother, Cosmetologist as well, when I was just a little girl. Later on, my mom and I owned a beauty salon in Ocala for 9 years. During this time, I graduated from Central Florida College in Ocala as a Cosmetologist, and acquired a strong foundation in my craft.  Three years ago, after joining Mode Salon Lonie Carpenter became my mentor and infused me with his passion for this industry. 

 Lonie and Danny believe wholeheartedly in providing hair, beauty and wellness professionals a thorough and complete education in our craft, as well as how to be successful, which has permitted me to become a Senior Stylist, striving everyday to move forward to the next level. 

 I personally love the Mode consultation process because it allows us to see what our clients really desire and helps us be on the same page, all while giving them something fun and exciting to remember about their experience in Mode Salon. 

 Proud to embrace my natural curls and whether your hair is wavy, curly or coily, I’ll be glad to address issues like frizz control, moisture and protein balance.
