Neatbeat Artists

Our Artists are hand selected and go through a strategic interviewing process. We’re friends here, so we’ll be honest with you… we don’t hire our hair stylists for skill. You can teach skills, but you can’t teach NICE. We hire for nice. We train our artists on things as specific as how to look in the mirror with our guests. We can teach how to be a top of the line hairdresser, but for some reason you cannot teach someone how to be authentically nice. We are so proud of our team and we think you will like ’em too!

    These artists have been trained by the top Educators in the world and have invested thousands to better themselves in their craft. They have put in many hours to be the best that Neatbeat has to offer.

  • Gold Beat Artists

    Simply the Best

    We strategically chose our guest care staff with incredibly high expectations. These individuals are the first people our guests come into contact with and the last people they interact with before they leave. Our Guest Care handles all communication over the phone so it’s important that these people are top notch. Not matter your age, color, or gender; these peeps have got it going on! Stop by just to see how wonderful they are.

     

neatbeat Heather Yurko

Heather Yurko

Heather Yurko is the founder and Chief PIPr (Positively Impacting People) at Neatbeat and her second company, The Heather Yurko Brand. Developing the brand and culture of “The Palace” (Neatbeat) in December of 2012 in her head, she worked incredibly hard to make her vision come to fruition. She knew what she wanted Neatbeat to feel, look and do business like, and on October 8, 2013 Neatbeat came to life in such a killer way.

Heather comes from a top 200 Aveda Salon in the Louisville Kentucky area where she was the only apprentice hired, for $7.50 an hour in 2008. She quickly rose to become the top producing stylist, as well as played a critical role in development of the salon’s training program, assisting program and bringing Great Lengths Hair Extensions to the state of Kentucky (cold fusion method.) In 2012, Heather met a huge goal of hers by having her total compensation from services and training hit over $100,000.

Heather is extremely passionate about being her best self and affecting her guests and teammates’ lives through PIP. She plans on PIPn millions, bringing in millions (yes, in dollars) and being a servant to all parties in the process. Heather says that she knows her dreams for life may seem crazy and out of reach to some, but she knows with strong faith and vision she can achieve anything, and so can you.

heart-treble

Treble was born in March of 2013, where our designers perfected his spray nozzle and gave him those cool “spray waves” that all the ladies love. He received his name at our Partaay (Neatbeat’s official Grand Opening in July of 2014), where one of our lovely Groupies named him after Treble Clef, the music note.

He’s a southern gentleman, a ladies man and a tad bit sneaky.

He also loves to PIP and get his picture taken. When you come to see us, be sure to pose with him in the salon!

Sammy G

When I first heard of Neatbeat it wasn’t about how great they were at doing hair (which is pretty obvious they’re the best at that) but what I heard, from already being in the Aveda world, was how INSPIRING and positive of a team they have. Now I can say that I am apart of that inspiring, positive, passionate and beautiful team. Being a specialized artist I got to grow one specific skill but now I am so excited to jump into the color world and start this new exciting journey with the Neatbeat Family right beside me.

Favorite Music

Depends on what day it is and what I’m doing. I can’t just pick one because I love all sounds of music, another passion of mine…after hair of course. You can catch me at a red-hot chili pepper concert with my dad, Lana del Ray with my mom, or country with my friends. Any Genre and I’m there.

Favorite PIP

I like to stay under the radar with my PIPS, I like to randomly pay for someone’s gas at Kroger, or tape money to the pump and walk away and just seeing the smiles on there faces and not knowing where it came from brings me so much joy.

ITF

My loving family and new opportunities. My family especially because they’re the ones encouraging me to work hard for everything that I have. Not just my parents but my entire extended family, I am so thankful for the support system that I have around me, everyday encouraging me to keep going and keep getting education and pursuing my dreams. And for THEM I will be forever grateful.
