Hi , I'm Katie
I have been in the hairdressing industry for over 18 years and have completed my educator training several years ago.  
Having a true passion for hair and how it makes the client feel when they walk out the door, I decided to open my own salon, Kreation Hair, in June 2015. 

I wanted to be able to give my clients friendly, relaxed salon experience and to help younger stylists on their journey to become successful stylists, sharing my passion and education with them.

I love photography, travelling and experiencing different cultures around the world.  Being part of the story behind photoshoots, fashion shows and weddings are my favourite things to do.

I love Bridal hair & have competed in National Hair Competitions, bringing home several top place trophies.  My own wedding day was one of the most special days of my life & being able to create beautiful hairstyles for a Bride & their guests on their special day is so rewarding. 

I also LOVE hair extensions and the confidence they give people with thinning hair, or even just to have that WOW insta worthy style all day every day!

Specialising in this area for over a decade, I have worked with every method and top brands out there.  I could never find exactly what I was looking for... Discreet hair extensions with natural movement & volume, long lasting shine that lasts for up to a year, re-useable methods with a large colour range to suit every client. 
In 2016 I started my own Hair extensions company.  It took almost 5 years of research and trying and testing hair quality from around the world before I finally rebranded and called it Studio-
I am now providing education classes and supply hair extensions to other top stylists around the country.

Going back to education, I have always educated myself continuously throughout my whole career, travelling and researching online to keep updated with the latest products & trends. 
in 2021,  I was so honoured to be chosen to join the Kevin Murphy Education team for Ireland. I absolutely love everything about the brand.  I love going into top salons all over Ireland, sharing knowledge and styling tips and also training my own team all year round.

A little about me personally - I was born in London, and lived there until I was 12 years old, I moved to Ireland with my family and absolutely love it here. I love the beach and countryside and going for walks in nature.  I have a lovely husband who has supported my dreams since the beginning 
and 2 beautiful children, Zack & Sophia. Our 2 dogs Leia (rough collie) & Indie (mini dachshund) keep our household busy too!

Thanks for reading if you got this far :)
