You have heard a lot about Kate Korpi Salon from us in the last new months, and that’s no accident. We have written about these beauty wizards a few times now: the runway show prep, the salon itself, and Brianne’s make up party time. We use the Kate Korpi team for photo shoots, for video segments, and for our own personal tune-ups. This means we’re there a little more than most. And we love it.
The salon doubles as a training school for Khmer students, and every morning the team and its small cohort of ultra talented students start with a moment for gratitude. A lot of the students in the program come from tough backgrounds, and this moment is for them to focus on progress, the things they have learned, and what they are thankful for. After a few moments of our own in the last week, we wanted to send a little gratitude to them.
The team at the salon is a constant source of good energy, crazy talent, and belly laughs. From the moment they answer your call, the warmth you receive when you enter the salon and the big hugs after the whole experience, there is warmth all over (the kind of warmth you want in this tropical heat). They have managed to master the total cool-kid vibe, without a whiff of snobbery. The staff is kind, generous, and has made us feel great on even our worst days. The Kate Korpi experience is transformative on so many levels. We leave feeling and looking so good, and counting down the days before we can go again.
Bad vibes go here to die, and come out with a sexy cat-eye and Bardot hair. Thank you, Kate Korpi family, for the hugs, the badass hair, the smokey eye, the giggles in between, and making it one of our favorite places to be.
