Kate Cates

After graduating from Austin’s Avenue Five Institute in 2009, I was given the amazing opportunity to dive into my craft and reach new levels of creativity at Vain.

I love borrowing bits and pieces from the past and melding them with a more modern sensibility, achieving a pastiche that is a beautiful reflection of each individual’s personal style. Most importantly, I strive to strike a harmony between client and stylist. Communication means so much, from making my clients smile to figuring out exactly what they’re looking for in a style. I give my full attention and actively listen to each and every person in my chair, and from there amazing things emerge.
