Hey lovelies, welcome back to another Major Love Monday. I am loving all the feedback on snapchat from the past post, its great to see us all sharing love and positivity for the amazing women out there.!
So onto todays lady. Katrina Kelly was on my list for this from the get go. Not only is she a hard working, inspiring business woman, mother, fiancée and talented stylist, but she has become a friend and she still has time to inspire us all through her positivity on snapchat. As she says she has the same amount of hours as Beyonce and I think we could all learn from this.
So lets chat a little more about Katrina. She started her career at 15 in Cats Hair Group at the Westbury hotel, she trained under the careful eye of Anthony Murray and Ian Brady who are well respected and champion stylists. When qualified she decided to head to Spain and work but she decided to come home and whilst working in Boots she knew she missed hairdressing and had to get back into it. Katrina has worked and trained with many world leading people and this plus her determination has helped her win many competitions over the years.
Katrina always had a passion for the industry including make-up and trained with Makeup Forever extensively, so when she opened her first salon at the age of 22 they did hair and makeup for a bridal party 3 months after opening, she always felt the 2 went hand in hand.Katrina opened her first salon in Glasnevin and further from this a second in Cabra. They have masterclasses all over the country with world class makeup artists like Amber Dean and workshops to help you learn the basics. This girl and her team are unstoppable!!
Katrina has developed an amazing makeup brand called Push and watching her speak about the brand is wonderful, the passion that she has for Push and her salons is inspiring. I am proud to see how global Push is becoming and I cant wait to see it grow and of course make more purchases ( seriously you have to try the brow gel, it has taken my brows from me hating them to loving them)!
The main thing that strikes me with Katrina is her love of the industry, her business, staff and clients. This isn't a job to her, its her passion and this is wonderful to see. The way she interacts with her staff is fantastic and she is always pushing them to be the best they can be and from this she is pushing herself to continue learning and being the best she can be in every aspect of her life. Katrina is just "real" she talks of her flaws, and her mistakes, gets hangovers and comes on Snapchat and lets us into her life. Katrina has 2 adorable kiddies that could brighten up anyones day, the way she sings with Darcy in the car is heart warming.
I cant speak highly enough of Katrina we have had some laughs on Snapchat and I fully believe this lady has the passion and drive to push her brand forward #pushgoesglobal!!
Katrina you are inspiring to not only me but many other women out there and I wish you nothing but the best for the future, you push women to be the best they can be and to always try and stay positive and for that I personally thank you.
