Cathy is thrilled to work behind the chair again and using all the tools the has been teaching her students. She loves working with the talented and amazing stylists at the Coiff and having the opportunity to connect with guests – ensuring they have a great experience and feel beautiful as they walk out the door. When she is not working at Douglas J. or at the Coiff, you will find her spending time at home or on her boat.

Cathy’s hair tip:

Rough dry hair 80% before adding stylist product and allow styling brushes to really allow the product the opportunity to do its job. Hair is like a sponge and it is full of water, product may evaporate off or dilute, and not reach it’s full potential.
