Team Profile

  • Aaron Kaehr, Owner

    Aaron grew up in Indiana and moved to Washington in 1997 after meeting his partner on the internet. He went to beauty school at Northwest Hair Academy in Mount Vernon, WA, and graduated with a Cosmetology license in 2003. He worked at the JCPenney salon in Burlington till 2005 before returning to Northwest Hair Academy to obtain his instructor’s license. He taught at the academy until 2012, worked a short time, again, at JCPenney before starting his dream of opening a male focused salon which is now Hair & Body Mechanix! The shop opened on January 7, 2013 after years of dreaming and coming up with lots of ideas of how to run the shop, how the décor should look and what sort of ambience was to be portrayed.

    Aaron enjoys running the business and enjoys cutting short hair cuts and fades.

    Outside of the busy schedule of running a business, and taking clients full time, Aaron loves to cook, and loves to eat even more! He enjoys spending his days off with his husband, Joe, who is a veterinarian. They always have a house full of pets of some sort. (Limited to cats and dogs, and hopefully a goat, someday!) Aaron and Joe enjoy travelling and try to take at least two major vacations each year, and various day trips around the Pacific Northwest.

  • Darin Helt, Hair Mechanic

    Darin started at Hair and Body Mechanix in October of 2015. Darin received his Barber/Cosmetology license from Crown School of Hair Design in 1986. Darin most recently worked, for 30 years, at Mariner Hair in Smokey Point. He enjoys doing gentlemen’s cuts.

    Darin loves to spend time with his family and friends. He enjoys hiking, swimming, and antique shopping.

  • Ian Petersen, Hair Mechanic

    Ian graduated from Paroba College in Everett, WA, with a license in barbering in October 2017. He enjoys doing all kinds of cuts as well as hair designs/tattoos. Nothing makes him happier than seeing his clients smile after a great haircut and a relaxing scalp massage at the shampoo bowl. You will enjoy Ian's outgoing personality and you will never have a hard time having a conversation with him. His mom confirms that he has the gift of gab! Outside of work, Ian enjoys spending time with his family, his son in particular. Long drives and video games are how he likes to unwind after a busy day of making people look awesome!
