About Our Stylists


Samantha “Sammie” McGee, a beacon of beauty nestled in the heart of Wilmington, Born with scissors in hand, she proudly carries the legacy of a salon dynasty that adorned Wrightsville Beach for over three decades. It seems the apple doesn’t fall far from the beauty chair; Sammie’s journey in the hair industry, now spanning a glorious 17 years, was kindled beneath the watchful eyes of her grandmother, the original maven of mane.

Crowned as Wilmington’s finest hairstylist three times, in 2014, 2018, and 2019, Sammie’s talents are no secret to the locals. Previously a Unite Educator, sprinkling a little extra sparkle on salons far and wide with the gospel according to UNITE products. Her global escapades include mentoring stylists at UNITE’s Global Sessions in  San Diego, a testament to her belief in growth and the pursuit of hair excellence.

Sammie’s skill set is as versatile as her hair color palette, specializing in everything from transformative color and balayage, to precision cuts for both men and women, not to mention her unparalleled prowess in blondes, and her thriving wedding business, where she weaves dreams into reality for brides-to-be.  

Blending families like she blends colors, Sammie and her partner, Richard, navigate the joys and jests of life with her adorable daughter Lillianna, his sons, Ethan and Jaxon, and a bustling brood of fur babies, her home is a heartwarming chaos of love and laughter.



Paige Klutchka graduated from Lansdale School of Cosmetology in Pennsylvania, in 2012. She packed up and left the cold & snow for the beautiful beaches of Wilminton, NC, but great friends, not beaches, made Wilmington her hometown. She loves being in the Cargo District as co-owner of Hill & Klutch Studio.

Paige’s down-to-earth personality allows her clients to always feel comfortable & special while they are in her chair – as they should! Color is her forte, from corrective color to subtle touches. She offers a large array of services including women’s & men’s cuts, wedding services, and Keratin smoothing treatments. She’s skilled in Balayage and razor cutting.

Paige can’t wait to create your custom color, or cut, at Hill & Klutch Studio!


Andrea Morris was born and raised right here in Wilmington, North Carolina! She has been in the industry for 3 years now and is very passionate about her career. Andrea believes in making every client that sits in her chair feel comfortable, confident and happy with their services! Her focus is in women’s color & cuts, balayage and special occasion makeup. Other services Andrea offers are men’s clipper cuts, highlighting services and a beautiful blowout!

Andrea and her husband, Ethan, were relocated to Rapid City, SD in 2022 due to the military. Andrea is back in Wilmington while her husband is deployed.  She and her husband have two adorable cats, Vega and Gizmo.  Andrea is not only licensed in North Carolina:, but also in South Dakota where she will be returning to eventually. 

She is excited to be working with the Hill & Klutch studio in the cargo district and would love to meet you to discuss your beauty needs.


My name is Katie Crawley. I’ve been a stylist for almost 15 years! I worked in Durham for half my career and have made Wilmington home the past 8 years! I married my amazing husband on Halloween of 2020. We recently welcomed a baby girl to the excitement of her big brother and other fur siblings! We love traveling and hunting vintage treasures down wherever we go!

As a stylist I love all aspects of hair from sculpted cuts to vibrant color and everything in between! While I love bright playful colors I put just as much customization into my natural color clients as well. I am always open to new ideas on where you would like your hair journey to take you! People always ask me if I like to cut or color more and I always tell them both! Your art would not be as beautiful on a tattered canvas. So why put it on one!?
