Meet Your Stylist

Tracie Ackerman

Hi, I'm Tracie! I opened A Cut Above Hair Design in 2005 and have 22 years experience behind the chair. I strive to make everyone feel pampered, beautiful and important while they are in my chair.  One of the things I love most about my job is the lasting relationships I create with my clients.  


I feel that hair color should compliment my clients' natural beauty which is why my passion is to create natural looking hair color through the latest balayage and color techniques, regular root touch-ups and gray blending services.  I stay current with the hair industry as it is constantly changing, by taking hands-on classes as well as using many online sources to keep myself refreshed and up to date on the latest trends and techniques.  I recently completed a 4-day Redken Hair Color Authority Course to further broaden my knowledge, creativity and passion for hair color.  I am a certified Sunlights Balayage artist as well as just completed a hands-on French Haircutting course.


I specialize in the product recommendation of Hairapy Essentials Haircare Products and will work with you to figure out the best hair care strategy that fits your life style and budget.  I always say I love a challenge, and finding creative solutions for better hair is what I do best!  



My clients always look forward to my heavenly shampoos and fantastic conditioning treatment featuring a refreshing peppermint scalp massage!  My clients feel comfortable knowing they can come in and talk about whatever they want, or nothing at all.  But they always leave feeling better than when they came in!

When I'm not working behind the chair, I love spending time with my son playing Minecraft or basketball with him.  When we're not doing that, we're usually chasing after my husband on one of his crazy ultra-running adventures, or you might find us on the nearest hiking trail.  To relax, you can find me on my front porch with our 2 rescue dogs, a cup of coffee and whatever book I'm currently reading.

Alexis Pacula

Hello, I'm Alexis!  I'm so excited to be starting out my career here at A Cut Above Hair Design.  I look forward to being mentored by Tracie, whom I hear is the BEST!

I graduated from Tusco Beauty School in Dover, Ohio.  There, I had the opportunity to meet so many great clients, build lasting relationships with them, and help them feel their best.

I graduated from Mount Vernon Nazarene University in 2008 with a bachelor's degree in finance and a minor in financial planning.

I have always had the dream of being a cosmetologist and with the encouragement of my husband, I took a leap of faith and went back to school.  It has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.  I now have the opportunity to wake up everyday and head to the job that I love.

I look forward to working with you all and becoming the best stylist I can be.  I am constantly looking for ways to grow personally and professionally to serve my clients to the best of my ability, because you deserve nothing less!

Outside of hair, I love spending time with my husband, Darian, being active with my church, running, and doing puzzles.  I cannot set down a good book and enjoy doing anything outdoors!
