Our Team

Leslie Kogut

Owning Leslie K LLC is an accomplishment that I am very proud of. I graduated from H.C. Wilcox Tech in 1984 in the Hairdressing and Cosmetology field and have loved my trade every day!

I feel so blessed to have a job that I truly love and to get to meet so many inspiring people. I enjoy being behind the chair doing Blowouts, Hair Color, Updo Styling, and Haircuts. The creativity of it all feels natural to me!

Claudia Licursi

I have loved my profession right from the start. I was raised in Southington and have been working in Meriden for over 35 years in the hairdressing industry.

My career has been a wonderful part of my life. Give me a challenge, and I will conquer it with a beautiful outcome! I love to cut and perm, but hair color is what I do best. I am skilled with fine hair and will make your style unique to you.

Abby Chichester

Born and raised in Meriden, I graduated from Academy Di Capelli in 2020 and immediately fell in love with being a Hairstylist and Makeup Artist! I love coloring and highlighting, especially for long, blonde hair.

I am a blonde specialist and love creating fun, new styles to fit each of my customers. Makeup is another specialty of mine. I enjoy doing complete looks for proms, weddings, and special occasions!

I’d love to help make your day go as smoothly as possible. I have been with Leslie K since 2020, and I love coming to work every day. I cannot wait to welcome you as a new customer and friend!

Originally from the Meriden area, I now live in Thomaston, raising my two children. I still come to Meriden to see my customers three times a week because I love my clients and my career.

I have a passion for hair, especially pop colors and beautiful highlights! I like to change hairstyles and colors to keep my clients looking fresh. I also enjoy doing formal makeup to complete my formal updos. Let’s update your style and make you POP!

I have been painting beautiful nails for over 30 years. I love the atmosphere of our nail room—quiet and relaxing.

I am one of the few nail techs in our salon so that you won’t feel crowded or overwhelmed during your appointment with me.

Come in and relax! Manicures or pedicures, I will treat you like family.

I was raised in Meriden after moving from the West Coast at a young age. I graduated from Wilcox Technical High School with a degree in Hairdressing and Cosmetology. Creating new hairstyles has always been my passion. From cutting and coloring to blowout styles, I enjoy every aspect of hairstyling. Helping people feel beautiful is what I love most about my work. I take pride in being a stylist for the entire family, for children, men and grandparents, ensuring everyone leaves looking their best. I can’t wait to welcome you to my chair at Leslie K LLC!
