Meet the Stylist: Kate Honer

April 29, 2015

Introduce yourself!

My name is Kate Honer and I’m from Hyde Park, MA. I am a Senior Stylist at SalonCapri’s Dedham and Newton locations.

How many years have you been a part of the SalonCapri team?

I’ve been part of the SalonCapri team for 5 wonderful years and have styled at all three locations!

Where did you study previously?

The Empire Beauty School of Massachusetts.

What do you specialize in?

I absolutely adore all things color! From all over hues, to all beautiful balayage highlights, I love it all!

What inspired you to become a stylist?

As a child, my parents knew I had a knack for styling hair as I loved cutting the hair on my dolls! In high school, my friends and family always came to me for their cuts and prom updos.

Which favorite hair care product has been in constant rotation for you behind the chair?

Shu Uemura’s Essence Absolue Protective Oil is an absolute miracle product! It works on every type of hair for a myriad of uses such as adding lightweight moisture and nutrition, rebalancing overall texture and providing heat and UV protection.

Which celeb haircut and/or color do you love and why?

Kim Kardashian! I loved that she had the courage to take the plunge from her iconic dark locks to a brilliant platinum lob during Paris Fashion Week.


What are your favorite hair colors or style trends right now?

Right now, I’m loving warm red hues and lob length cuts for spring.

What advice would you give a client who wants to try something new or different with their hair?

I love helping clients pick a new color or style – trying something new is always a good idea as long as it is executed correctly. If you have something in mind that you would like to try, it always helps when clients bring in images of celebs with a look they love.

What hair products should everyone have in their arsenal at home?

No matter what type of hair you have, everyone wants body, manageability and a little bit of umph! L’Oréal Professionnel’s Volumetry Anti-Gravity Root Lift Spray adds long-lasting body and density to limp and lifeless hair by pumping up the roots and prevents oil buildup!
