@katiefro – Being interested in hair and makeup at a young age, Katie enrolled in a Paul Mitchell School directly after graduating high school in 2011.

Katie has been educated with many color lines, such as Paul Mitchell, Schwarzkopf, Scruples, Muk. OYA, J Beverly Hills and Affinage. Over the years she has found a love for educating and in 2019, she took her career to the next level and became an educator for OYA (Own Your Art).
