Meet The Team

Katia Rocha Owner
Level 4
I am the proud owner of Alana Kai Salon. I have been doing hair for 10 years and I can say I have truly found my passion. There is nothing that makes me feel happier and satisfied than to see happy clients leave with the hair that they ask for and the excitement of making future appointments so that I can always take the best care of their hair. Since I began doing hair I have tried my best not only to meet all my clients hair color and cut dreams and goals but to do it in a safe and healthy way! The most important thing to me as a hairdresser is maintaining the best integrity of the hair. I have opened my dream hair salon so that I can continue to create beautiful custom hair to each and everyone of my clients.

Also, Having a management position gives me the opportunity to lead change in the salon in a positive way and help fellow stylists reach their goals while maintaining long term growth. When I’m not working, I spend my time hanging out with family and friends, binge watching tv shows, or looking for an adventure. I’m so happy to call Alana Kai my “home” and I look forward to meeting all of you!

Hi guys, my name is Autumn! I’ve been doing hair since June of 2020. My favorite thing to do is blondes and balayages. I joined the Alana Kai family back in May of 2021. I sadly had to leave in August of 2021 to go to a salon closer to home in Williamsburg where I was living at the time and where I was born and raised. Fortunately I had the opportunity to move to the Richmond area in March of 2022 and returned back to my hair home in February of 2022. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my friends on the river or at any kind of country concert. I hope to see all of your beautiful faces in my chair here at Alana Kai salon in Short Pump.

Sommer Garner
(New Talent)
Hi there! My name is Sommer and I am an assistant in Alana Kai’s apprenticeship program working towards becoming a licensed hairstylist. I have been in the beauty industry for about 2 years and am getting so close to being licensed. My desire to become a hairstylist started when I was in college. I would do my roommates and college mates hair and makeup whenever we would go out. I quickly realized how much I loved dolling up my friends and helping them feel beautiful & confident. So I dropped out of college and began working at a hair salon and it was the best decision I’ve ever made. I truly love what I do and I am so thankful to get to learn under Katia and the rest of our amazing team! I am excited to see all of your beautiful faces in the salon & hopefully one day in my chair!

I am so grateful to be part of such a supportive team and am so excited to see what the future holds for me here. In my free time I love hanging out with my friends and family, going to the beach, and seeing live music every chance I get. I hope to specialize in curly hair once I'm licensed to offer all curly-haired beauties a hairstylist they can trust! I can't wait to work with all of you!
