I've owned Hair By Kate, and have worked for myself for approximately 38 years. I'm proud to be a San Francisco native and have built a substantial and loyal clientele here, with many clients who have become friends. I really enjoy all aspects of being a professional colorist and stylist and tend to be a bit of a perfectionist. Consistency is key in giving my clients what they need and deserve - my very best.
