Kate’s love of hair started early in life, when she began experimenting with colour and cuts as a teenager as an outlet for self-expression. Kate trained and received her diploma from the Aveda Institute of Victoria over 10 years ago. She then went on to earn her Master Colourist certification through Schwarzkopf and an additional colour certifications through Pravana. She loves helping her clients work through difficult colour corrections as well as balayage, highlights, and vivid colour applications. 


Her positive, adventurous, and upbeat outlook on life translates both inside and outside of the salon.  One of our founding members; Kate starting with the shop on day one! Our anchor, Kate has always been a brilliant and essential piece of our shop.
