Originally from Australia, Kate started her training in Perth in 1989. Once qualified, she gained valuable experience in a Melbourne salon for over 5 years before venturing to London in 1999.
She first worked in a salon in the heart of Camden Town where she experimented with creative cutting & colouring, extensions and all aspects of the weird and wonderful. After many years there, she took a break from city life and headed off to India where she opened her own hairdressing business working in both Goa and the foothills of the Himalayas.
Kate returned to London in Summer 2010 and joined the Shine family where she rediscovered her love of hairdressing and being part of a busy team. ‘I primarily enjoy cutting but find the combination of cutting and colouring to suit the individual the most satisfying’.
London life in the summer and Margaritas are her passions outside of work.
