Since 1998, when her career began, Kat Kern 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 is the frame to your beautiful face and should enhance your best qualities!

Kat’s career began 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. 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 uses a special dry cut technique she developed early in her career for a perfect result. Kat recently became a certified Deva Curl Inspired hair cutter.

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.

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