Attention Seattleites!

Any EDM (electronic dance music) fans out there? As some of you know Seattle is full of events and shows catering to the dance music community. I myself love to spend a night with friends catching one of our favorite DJ’s playing downtown. FEED ME with Teeth is performing February 20th & 21st at the Showbox market. What will you wear, and more importantly what will you do with your hair?? I myself like to keep my hair out of my face and to rock an updo of some sort. Need help styling your hair for an event like this? Come see me and we can create and amazing style together.

One of my favorite things to use when going out to shows is Kevin Murphy’s color bug. To achieve this look pair it with Kevin Murphy’s night rider to get the full affects. First you take a small amount of the night rider and place it onto the section of the hair. Afterwards you take the color bug and saturate the piece with as much as needed. This will stay in all night as well as a couple of days if you so choose. It can wash right out with Kevin Murphy’s maxi wash shampoo! Whether you’re going out or just feel like being beautified book with me today!

Katie Kate’s New Music Video

Check out Katie Kate’s just released YouTube music video for “” from her album Flatland. It was directed by Stephen Gray and was filmed at Capitol Hill’s Fred Wildlife Refuge.

D’Arcy Harrison (of D’Arcy Hair Design at Emerson Salon) created two looks for the video. Both looks incorporate her side buzz cut that needs to be freshened up every 3-4 weeks. The braided/bun updo was achieved with 3 and 4 strand braids pinned into a bi-level bun. The long, flowy hair was achieved by taking out the braids (which left it wavy). adding bright blond extensions and back brushing. And of course, Kevin Murphy Session Spray was the hard hold heavy to keep the hair looking fabulous during the 18 hour video shoot!

Look for Katie Kate to perform at the Sasquatch Music Festival at The Gorge in addition to the labor day Bumbershoot Music Festival at Seattle Center. Make sure to follow her on YouTube.
