Meet Makenna Smith

•Job Title: Hair Cutting Specialist at Circle C Ranch

•Hometown: I was born and raised in Cedar Park, and I consider North Austin my stomping grounds. 

•School:  The Aveda Institute, Austin, TX

•What I'm looking forward to in the next year: Learning, growing, learning, growing — Wash, rinse, repeat. I am a thorough believer that education never ends, in every aspect of life. Now that I’m finally started in a career I’m passionate about, I can’t wait to get my hands dirty, and try a little bit of everything!

My favorite part of the job:  The people, by far. One of my favorite parts of my job is that I get the chance to meet people from all over the place — Both guests and coworkers. Even when it’s just small talk, I love getting to know a little piece of someone’s life. 

•What attracted me to the industry:  I am a service oriented person, so getting to brighten someone’s day by giving them a fresh cut, or even as simple as washing their hair, puts a smile on my face. 

•My favorite cut techniques: Any variation of a bob, hands down. 


•Little known facts about me:  I’m a cat mom, amateur tattoo collector, and full time nap enthusiast.
