About the Artist

Kat’s career began on the fashionable and very chic Maiden Lane in San Francisco’s Union Square neighborhood in 1998 using Vidal Sassoon cutting and Wella International color techniques. She spent many years training, specializing and mastering in both cut and color techniques to offer a total look. She has been living by her motto: “Hair is the frame to your beautiful face!” With a passion for hair styling and love of making each person she encounters feel fresh and renewed, she believes hair should enhance your best qualities!


Over the years, she has developed a specialty in curly and fine hair, where she takes special care to work with the curl/wave pattern, texture and growth pattern of each head she encounters. Kat is a Nationally listed and certified Deva Curl Inspired hair cutter as well. Kat’s latest addition to her career repertoire is a Certified Hair Loss Specialist for fine and thinning hair. Continuing her education over the span of her career, she recently received her membership into the American Hair Loss Council where she is Nationally listed and trained in Women’s hair loss and restoration solutions.


Kat stays very current and inspired through continual education and retaining new techniques for the most updated hair trends. Her career has included styling for the stars, photo shoots and set work both in San Francisco and in New York. You can catch her work featured in Magazines like Town & Country, Allure Magazine, Ladies Home Journal, 7×7 magazine, and even on Channel 5 News San Francisco!

“I find my true artistic expression through designing hair and the great reward is working with my clientele.” – Kathryn Kern
