Meeting someone who’s actually from LA and living in LA is like finding a unicorn on the 405–impossible and unbelievable. That’s why we love Kacey Welch, our rare-breed native Angeleno and HL extension expert extraordinaire!! Kacey tells us she got her start in hair **ahem** cutting the hair of the football team and we’re seriously jealous we didn’t think of it ourselves! Flash forward to 2018, Kacey’s expert color and extension work at Roil Salon has been seen on everyone from Kate Hudson to Kirsten Dunst.
Q: What makes you excel at what you do?
A: Definitely hard work and passion. As well as talent and staying current with styles. I work with top tier clients, stars and tons of people who work in entertainment and they really trust me. I’ve also studied under phenomenal people like Justin Anderson. A lot of time and energy has gone into my career and that’s what makes me good at what I do!
Q: Tell us something we don’t know about extensions.
A: Extensions ARE NOT one size fits all. There are different methods and they’re customized to match each individual person. Like a tailored dress – it’s all made to fit.
Q: What’s a fun fact about you that would surprise us?
A: Sarah Conner was my assistant!! (Sarah Conner, as in one of our favorite HL Specialists? YES, we are surprised!!)
