In 2004, while assisting at a specialty curly hair salon, Caitlin was inspired by the joy and pure happiness clients expressed as they left the salon. After years of struggling with their hair, women and men with curly hair were finally loving and understanding their beautiful curls. They were accepting and loving a part of themselves they once struggled with. This peace and ability to help people physically, emotionally and spiritually, inspired Caitlin to train for her Cosmetology license, with the sole purpose to cut and treat only naturally curly hair.
Since then, Caitlin has also become a skilled sculptural jeweler and has melded these two crafts, establishing a unique artistic haircutting personality - when cutting curly hair, she looks at the head as a sculpture, knowing that each curl type must be etched differently and with precision. With this understanding, combined with her free-spirited, loving nature, she encourages playful curls to flow through sculptured movement, allowing each curl's personality to open up and express. She is also passionate about educating her clients on how to style and care for their curls so they can replicate the salon look at home.
Caitlin has worked as a Senior Stylist and Educator at the prestigious Los Angeles and Miami Ouidad Flagship salons for over 12 years. She has also styled hair for runway shows such as Chloé and Cosabella, Miami Swim Week, red carpet events, various production works and photoshoots.
Today, you can find Caitlin working at the renowned Ramirez|Tran salon in Beverly Hills as their Curl Expert and appearing as a Guest Artist at Ouidad by Chadwick and Igor in Miami, Florida.
Caitlin specializes in wavy to tight curl textures.
