Kate - Salon Director

Kate had always wanted to be a journalist when she grew up. Fortunately for Cheltenham, Kate turned her ambitions to hairdressing and since opening her own salon she has never looked back.


After an initial three year apprenticeship, Kate has continued to go on courses and gain new skills and qualifications, including courses with L’Oreal (namely the L’Oreal Advanced Colour Keys course) and Kerastase. She has also completed Salon Management courses and trained with Lee Stafford and Anne Veck.


Kate worked for some time as a hairdresser in New Zealand, gaining valuable experience in cutting different hair types – she once cut the hair of an Eskimo!


Kate has always been ambitious and she encourages the members of the salon team to excel in their field. This ambition has gained her a finalist place in the Cheltenham Business Awards for Woman of the Year and Business of the Year.

In 2013 Kate studied the arduous L’Oreal Colour Specialist Degree. After three months’ hard work she qualified with a pass and Merit.


Kate has enjoyed cutting hair and making customers feel special for ** years. She would love to win the Finals of the L’Oreal Colour Trophy (Kate and the team were Finalists in 2006, 2007, 2012,  2014 and 2024). Kate would also love to play for Liverpool FC, but even better than that would be to be Steven Gerrard’s wife for a day!


Back in reality, Kate loves being part of a successful salon, helping new talent and creating an inspirational working environment.
