Meet the Stylists

Amber – Stylist
Amber was born and raised in Urbana. She has been doing hair professionally since 2015. She loves cutting and coloring hair and keeping up with the latest trends. When this talent isn’t behind the chair, you can find her somewhere performing. She loves to sing and dance. Ever since she could remember she always wanted to be a “SUPERSTAR”!

AJ Swaim – Stylist
AJ is a Monticello native, who has been passionately styling men’s hair since 2014, and has been a hair stylist for 15 years. AJ’s enthusiasm is contagious! Outside of work you can find her making memories with her family, hiking and spending time in the kitchen where she loves to cook!

Taylor – Stylist
Taylor grew up about 20 minutes outside of Champaign in St. Joseph. She transferred from our sister salon, Rod Sickler Salon & Spa, and came to Clutch Cuts to focus on men’s hair. In her time away from the salon she is a portrait photographer. She loves spending time with her dog, Meiko, riding dirt bikes and doing anything adventurous out doors.

Mary Madson – Stylist
Born and raised in the inner-city of Chicago, Mary relocated to Champaign where she found her passion in helping people look and feel their best, through the art of hair. When she’s not making people look as handsome as they can, you can find Mary making music, singing and performing locally, as well as reading and painting to to pass the time. She also loves to travel and go on adventures with her loyal pup, Pepper LePe’u.
