Hi everyone,

We're all in this together, please be patient with us while navigating this new process. The groundwork for rescheduling and re-booking is being arranged. We can't wait to see you all, we have received so much support and kindness during our closure and it makes us excited to open our doors.

Please keep in mind as our hours & days will be restricted with limited stylists on the floor at one time.

Here is what to expect:

  • Upon your arrival- please call Kokopelli to let us know you have arrived
  • when your stylist is prepared for you, you will be texted to come on in.
    (Until this time you'll be asked to wait outside or in your car, or your welcome to wait on our sidewalk sitting area.)
