Kate graduated from Chic University in Grand Rapids In 1974. After managing a salon in Hudsons Woodland Mall, Kate moved to Traverse City to open What’s Ahead Hair Co. in Acme.  After 6 years, she moved her salon to South Airport Road, changed the name to Signature Salon and was located there for 19 years.  In 2002, Kate moved the salon to the Front Street location and has now been there for 10 years! At 35 years in business, Kate has just about done every trend that has come around in hairstyling!

Training has taken her to the Sebastian Academy in Los Angeles twice for week-long trainings, Toronto at Interstyle for two week sessions, New York, and many other locations. Having trained and mentored many new stylists, one of the biggest rewards has been seeing happy successful stylists become high demand professionals. Hairdressing is an art, the techniques used to make that art marketable for clients to be able to do their own hair and look great is our main goal. The haircut is the foundation of every style and if  the shape is cut into the hair properly, the hair should practically do itself! Stylists should be able to look at each clients face shape, hair texture, density, lifestyle, and come up with what is the best shape to highlight clients’ best assets.
