Our Team

Meet Our Team

Kathleen Parata

– Director & Brow Master

Ever since Kat was 8 years old, she wanted to be free and to grow up so fast she could travel the world, only dreaming of being her own boss. Growing up without a father and seeing her family struggle at times was extremely hard and by the age of 14 she had her first part-time job.

After moving from New Zealand to Australia in 2010 her mission was to find her passion for an industry where she could build sustainability for her family, as well as help others in need where she could.

Working 2 part time jobs and a third job building this business from scratch took a lot of drive and passion which resulted in her taking her home salon into our Carina location today.
