Katie started in the beauty industry right out of high school with a career as a makeup artist with MAC Cosmetics. Eventually this job would bring her to the LA market where she would help train and develop some of the top makeup artists working in LA. During her time down south she enrolled in the Vidal Sassoon cosmetology program where she completed her classical training. Katie spent a few years doing hair and makeup for commercial and print work, but was soon ready to come home to the Bay Area and start her career as a colorist, and she knew diPietro Todd was where she wanted to be. Keeping hair shiny and healthy is what Katie’s biggest goal is – whether it’s creating a creamy blonde or a rich brunette. Her attention to detail and ability to create an individual look tailored not only to fit your complexion but also your lifestyle, is what motivates her and makes her fall in love with her job daily!
