Hey there gorgeous! My name is Katie Amezquita and I am a hair and makeup artist based in downtown Phoenix. I love what I do because I am able to work with so many badass women to create unique customized looks that allow them to look and feel as amazing on the outside as they are inside. I have always loved fashion and beauty since I was young so I followed in the footsteps of my grandparents and went to cosmetology when I was 16 in my home of sunny California. I spent several years learning everything I could and refining my skills and began my new journey in Phoenix, Arizona
My clients love that I am always educating myself on not only the tried and true classics of hair and makeup but the latest trends and techniques. They enjoy that I bring a unique approach to hair and makeup that blends my classic vintage style with a touch of modern sophistication. I specialize in creating healthy dimensional color ranging from natural to vibrant vivid tones and anything in between. My guests find comfort in knowing I have the skills to create versatile cuts that work well with different styles and textures. I enjoy sharing my extensive product knowledge so your style can be easily recreated at home. So, never hesitate to ask me what tips and tricks will make your hair care routine easier..
It is important to me that every person feels beautiful, and I am fully committed to making that happen. I mean what is better than walking into the salon, fully trusting your stylist, and leaving the crazy that is life behind, recharge, and getting pampered for a few hours? Major bonus when you also walk out with fresh hair feeling like a million bucks! I believe communication is fundamental and I am dedicated to working with your vision to create a tailor made look that reflects who you are from your everyday look to the biggest life events.
When I'm not at work or taking classes, I enjoy time spent with family and friends, watching some of my favorite shows (Parks&Rec, New Girl, Friends, among others) or scary movies, listening to true crime, or reading with a nice glass of wine. I will be honest, I am very shy by nature, but love getting to know new people and places. I am always looking for great restaurants, hiking trails, or things to do in the area, so I would love to hear about all your favorite local spots!
My goal as not only a stylist but as a person is to leave a positive impact on everyone I meet. Whether it is a smile, a laugh, or a changed heart. So what are you waiting for? Let’s make you feel as beautiful as we already know you are!
