Kate Self-Employed

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.

Kate has been my hairdresser for many years now I trust her implicitly with the cut and colour of my hair. I always feel glamorous when I leave the salon.
Thanks Dawn
Salon Review
I'm so proud of being a Shine customer! The salon today was SO amazing, considering that this is new for everyone and a really worrying time. I felt so absolutely looked after. The lovely Shine team were (this is a compliment!) like the best possible Harley Street nurses - charming, helpful, and professionally focused on giving the best customer experience, whilst at the same time keeping everyone safe. Kate was of course her normal, brilliant self (so glad to get my hair back to an acceptable standard) and it was so good to be back. I know what a huge effort this has been, in the exceptionally difficult Covid-19 circumstances, and you have done wonderfully. I can't wait for us to get back to normal, but for now please be assured that your team are setting the standard for everyone else.
Thanks Lucy,
