Hi! I’m Katie.

Owner, Lead Artist and the “Katie” in Bridal Hair Couture By Katie.

Working with me is a very intentional process where hairstyles are carefully designed around my clients natural beauty, personal style and aim to elevate their look beyond the aisle to the red carpet. 

My love affair with hair began in the 1990’s when I was just 10 years old and discovered an obsession with Fashion and Runway. Being inspired by fashion icons such as Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer (the list goes on), my greatest desire was to find a way into that glamorous world to find a career path that would have me behind the scenes as part of the creative process. Hair was always the number one thing I felt had the most appeal and made the greatest statement when it came to fashion and I understood its power to either make or break a person’s look.

After completing a short seasons of work experience in a salon during my last year of high school, I went on to pursue a four-year apprenticeship in advanced hairstyling. Over the next 10 years, I went on to work in many different avenues of hairstyling and had the incredible opportunity to work alongside the best in my industry. For the majority of my career my work focussed on in-salon work such as cut, colour and styling but creating looks backstage for runway shows, working closely with brides and focussing on the design aspects of hairstyling, was where my heart really was. I continued to take up opportunities working for TV, media, red carpet and even competed on a national level, coming runner up in all of Australia for Goldwell’s 2006 Trend Zoom in Editorial Hair Design.

After meeting my Canadian husband, I left Australia to settle here in Toronto, Canada in 2008. I then took on the job of a lifetime by becoming the mother to four beautiful children. I left the industry for a season but after my second Son was born, I began the dream of establishing my own business and get my hands back into some hair again.

My goal this time was to create a business of my own. where my passion for hair could marry well with my very important role as a hands on Mother, allowing me to do what I love most while still being there for the ones I loved most. Bridal work seemed to strike the balance. It was, after all what I did best as an artist AND allowed me to still be home regularly as a mother. So began the creative process of building my dream.

In 2012 Bridal Hair Couture By Katie was officially established and since then I have built my name in Toronto for my passion for my craft and my love for my clients. My desire is to provide an experience where Brides and all clients alike can enjoy a very unique hairstyling service, set apart from others in the industry. To create styles that are a sophisticated fusion of timeless, bridal elegance with that high fashion, runway appeal that I love so much. 

Working with me is a very intentional process where hairstyles are carefully designed around my clients natural beauty, personal style and aim to elevate their look beyond the aisle to the red carpet. 

Hair has never been just another job for me. It is all I do and I am grateful to have worked in such a variety of amazing opportunities inside hair design, meet so many amazing clients, celebrities and Artists which has inspired me so much to continue sharpening my skills, transforming the face of my business and defining my brand.

i’d love to work with you!
