Once arriving in New York City, Kattia went straight to the top of the beauty industry for her continued inspiration. She worked in some of the most prestigious salons in New York. Having the honor to work with some of the best artists in the business, Kattia quickly evolved into a top stylist, with a flare all her own.
Kattia was determined from the start to make a major impact in the beauty industry. This determination resulted in Kattia being sought out by top beauty editors, fashion designers and celebrities.
Kattia is a stylist who embraces the natural texture of hair. Her techniques empowered her clients with options when styling their hair at home. Her signature layered cut could easily transform from a down town, sexy bohemian vibe to an uptown sophisticated socialite. Her color choices vary from natural looking brunettes to bold balayage. It's about individuality and she gives that to every client that sits in her chair.
KS: The concept was always to build a fun, friendly environment where clients and employees feel at home. I have always known that it's very health to be around happy people and I would try my hardest to build that space. I feel it's unique because it's very New York without the attitude. I love the design of the space, its lofty with a tropical feel. It's fun and cool and very comfortable.
RLB: What are your favorite treatments at the Salon?
KS: I love to take care of my hair. I'm a big treatment person. I get a Kerastase salon treatment once a month and I do the Kerastase mask #3 at home 3 times a week for 5 minutes. I also apply sunscreen every time I'm out in the Sun. I also have spa night at home where I make a rosemary rinse and follow up with a coconut oil and avocado mask for 20 minutes.
KS: I love facials by Joanna Vergas and she has me on the best products Anakiri. They are natural products. For body care I try to scrub and moisture every two days. I prefer to mix my own and follow up with oils like almond, avocado or coconut. I have dry skin and it is the only way to keep it soft. I do love Natura Bisse's scrub and their Diamond Cream moisturizer.

Kattia's Brush Free Blowout technique for curly hair
Grab a section of damp hair at midlength, pull it taut and blast the half that's by your roots with the dryer. Repeat this all the way around your head (you'll be left with straight roots and curly ends). Next, grab sections of hair, twist from the midlength down to your ends and blow-dry the twist. The result is a beautiful, not-pin-straight blowout.
Butterfly Studio Salon is also home to one of the best eyebrow shaping artists (and makeup artists) in the country (yes we've been to that many!). Her name is Francis Roman and several of our Palacinka staff members trust their brows only to her! Shhhh......
