If you’re looking for a hair stylist and Makeup artist in the Quad cities, please consider going to Cate Carroll! She just opened her salon in Orion, IL and she is extremely talented at her craft. She is passionate about her work and I am so happy to have had the chance to interview her!
What made you decide to go into hair and makeup?
I never planned on doing hair and makeup, I just did makeup on my friends for dances as well as doing it for my friends in college before this. After switching my major three times, my mother suggested I just start doing hair. So then I decided to go to Paul Mitchell School for Cosmetology and got my certification.
What made you decide to open your salon?
I worked for a high end salon in downtown Davenport, and that’s when I realized that I didn’t want to work only in a high end salon. I wanted it to feel like home and I wanted others to be able to afford their hair, to give them the option to have great looking hair at an affordable rate.
So what about the makeup? Not every cosmetologist will do all that they went to school for, how did you decide what you were going to take with you?
I worked at Sephora for two years, which gave me a great base for makeup artistry, I also did pageants which I also had to do my own makeup for.
What are your business goals? What do you want to offer in the future?
My goal is to move into somewhere bigger in the Quad Cities, as well as offering spray tanning and gel nails, as well as nail art.
