Kat Collett found her passion for the beauty industry at a very young age. Before she realized the art of hair and makeup, she was interested in chemistry and painting. Coloring and makeup became second nature to Kat as she began to build a name in the industry.
She graduated from Paul Mitchell the School of Overland Park and finished at the top of her class, being the first person to ever complete the Dean’s List at the school. After working a student-run fashion show in Las Vegas, she was able to network and meet people from all over the country. Kat was hired from out of state and pursued a job in Houston, Texas to work for a Paul Mitchell Platform Artist. Working for a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon doing hair and makeup, she was awarded Rising Star of the Year.
After returning home to Kansas City, Kat has followed her dreams of becoming a small business owner and currently works out of downtown Overland Park, Kansas. While specializing in hair coloring and bridal styling and makeup, she embraces the history and tradition of the beauty industry, but has an unyielding thirst for the evolution of the craft. Spending countless hours educating herself on the current techniques and trends, she loves to enhance one’s natural beauty and express their individuality in art form. Kat’s art can be described as sophistication with a spice.
She has been featured on the cover of Vintage KC and inside Faction Magazine and EA Bride. After working backstage for numerous runway shows, one of her goals is to work the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. When not coloring and cutting in the salon, Kat travels on-site for bridal, boudoir, and senior photo shoots.
With every person Kat meets, she sees a canvas before her, waiting for an artist’s touch. Reaching more in-depth, Kat connects with her guests with a loving heart and strives to help make the world smile, one person at a time. To her, this career is so much more than what appears on surface level, there is a chance to create beauty in all things. Beginning early next year, Kat plans to transform her local community by giving back in a new and inspirational way. Stay connected to follow Kat on her journey!
