Not so long ago, I sat in a style symposium keyed by an up-and-coming player in the fashion world. She said something that I will never forget: that I should have my own personal team of style professionals. . . people who understand my preferences and can navigate me through my own style evolution; professionals who know trends and classics. Today’s blog is a shout-out to an important piece of my team: my hair stylist. Kate is the person I’ve entrusted to take me from a naturally chestnut-brown hair to a vivid blonde; from safe-bob to razored pixie. She’s a student of chemistry, mixology, skin tones, and coloring. She’s the person I send a quick text-pic to saying, “can I pull off this. . .?” We occasionally work together with mutual bridal clients, but I simply adore my Me-time with her, in her chair. She gets me. This is Kate Howdyshell. . .
