Katie was born and raised in Austin, Texas, where she attended Baldwin Beauty School. Always inspired by the film industry and classic hollywood style, she decided to continue her education in Beverly Hills under a celebrity colorist. After completing her training, she worked in the prestigious Juan Juan salon for 3.5 years, and worked on film sets and styled photo shoots in her free time. In 2015, Katie and her fiancé moved back home to Austin where she teamed up with the one and only, Jose Luis Salon.
Katie enjoys customizing color and haircuts to suit each individual’s personality and lifestyle, and specializes in ombre, balayage, creative color, and corrective color transformations. She is certified in tape-in hair extensions and Brazilian keratin treatments. Katie also loves creating unique styles for special occasions such as weddings, proms, corporate events, photoshoots, or just a fun night on the town. Outside of the salon, she is passionate about traveling around the world and continuing her education to perfect new techniques and stay on top of modern trends.
Katie’s main goal is to make every person that sits in her chair feel beautiful inside and out, and through that experience, form lifelong friendships.
