Our Staff :: Catherine Kuipers


After many years of amateur hairdressing, I studied for my cosmetology license in New York City and my first professional gig was assisting John Dellaria and his design team at the John Dellaria Salon in NY. There I was trained to cut and texturize hair using his precision technique he calls “Parametrics.” I worked there for four years, advancing to senior stylist and participating in hair shows as a member of his design team.

I then came to California and while working in salons in the Santa Monica area, I was recruited by Sebastian International to teach in-salon classes promoting their products, in particular Colourshines, by demonstrating their advanced color application techniques.

I’m now happily working at the Shampoo Lounge after selling a salon I owned in Santa Monica with a partner called Salon Indigo.
