Kat has lived in Colorado her whole life and loves every aspect of it. She spends her summers camping, hiking, riding her bike, and spending time at the lake. In the winter, during her time off, she can be found snowboarding as often as possible or reading a book. Her other hobbies include baking, listening to music, and crafting. She has two dogs, Buster and Milla, and absolutely loves to be with them as much as possible.
How long have you worked in the beauty industry?
I’ve been doing hair for 5 years now and have worked at Planet for 4.
What do you love most about doing hair?
I LOVE to style for weddings! Being a part of the bride’s day is such a special experience. Other than that, I really couldn’t choose another favorite, I love it all! I especially enjoy doing detailed short haircuts and structured bobs, as well as Men’s cutting and styling, and anything to do with color, especially reds and blondes.
The best part is making a connection with my guests and helping them look and feel great!
You are the educator at Planet. Talk to us about that.
I have learned that I absolutely love helping others grow, see their potential, and develop confidence. I work with our New Talent Stylists in an advanced training program to help them further develop the skills they learned in cosmetology school. I love teaching people that are passionate about this industry and helping the New Talent Stylists on their way to a successful career has been so exciting. I also support the rest of the team by giving them support on the business side of things. Like I said, there is nothing better than seeing my team grow in both their technical skills and their business skills!
