My passion is helping women fall in love with their reflection in the mirror and my magic wands of choice are my blowdryer and backcomb. I absolutely live for the moment when I swivel that little black chair around and wait for the expression. The smile. The excitement. I want every woman to feel that way after leaving this site or experiencing a service with me.
I created this site for women of all backgrounds who need a little extra inspiration, guidance, and resources. I didn’t know a round brush from a backcomb when I started beauty school. Or even why using box color was such a faux pas. On day one, I realized I was way behind my peers and as such, I soaked up everything I could. I volunteered for film projects and commercials, spent one on one time with my mentors hounding them with questions, I read every book I could find on the beauty industry, and competed in a hair show that landed me an apprenticeship with a prestigious salon upon graduation. And eventually, I began working behind my own chair.
And then something happened. Clients in my chair, my best girlfriends, strangers I met at parties and told my occupation to… everyone had questions! They all wanted to know how to recreate the trends they saw, how to style their hair in a timely manner, how to master the new braids that seemed to be everywhere. They wanted to know exactly how to round brush their hair, why they always seemed to have static, and how come they shouldn’t buy their shampoo from a grocery store. They either didn’t have a regular stylist to give them this knowledge, their stylist didn’t have time for the questions, or they were just too scared to ask. So, I started answering. And if I didn’t know, I found out and then answered. My clients and friends began to see their time in my chair as not only receiving the work of my hands, but also receiving some of the knowledge I’d worked so hard to obtain. I was not just a hairdresser, I was a resource for all things hair.
Hair With Kate was born out of those experiences. I want you to think of me as your very own personal hairstylist and this site as my advice to you. Just head over to the blog to get all the goodies! Every weekday, I post a new piece on the products you need to know about, advice from celebrity hairdressers, tips and tricks for styling, and the best of beauty school basics. As far as I’m concerned, my job is to make you fall in love with your hair and this site is where you will find the means to do so…because when you look your best, you feel your best!
On top of the written words you can find here, I also encourage you to book a custom service with me. I offer event hair styling, film and photo shoot styling, and styling lessons and parties “to go” anywhere requested in the Denver metro area. I also offer a full salon menu including haircuts, hair colors, and conditioning treatments at my salon location in Arvada on Sundays and Mondays and from my chair at Fluff*Bar Thursday-Saturday. To see some of my work before your service, feel free to check out my portfolio and be sure to glance at my Featured In section to hear all the buzz about Hair With Kate. And if you need a little more information about the woman behind the little black chair, head over to the about section and get to know me a bit better!
