THE STUDIO STYLISTS
Kauilani Goodwyn has been an AVEDA Certified Color Educator for over 10 years. She has used her talents to not only dress the tresses of celebrities and supermodels, but also to help expand the skill set of fellow stylists through hair color and styling education. She’s honed in on her craft through working alongside industry leaders like Tippi Shorter, Allen Ruiz, Ian Michael Black, Lupe Voss, and others. Her work has been featured in international editorials and on the runways of New York Fashion Week. Her Why?: “As a stylist/colorist it is to create/enhance beauty and offer a place of serenity in a busy world for my guests, family, friends, and models that refuels them to take on the world; as an educator it is to relay and inspire stylists to never stop growing, learning, changing, and welcoming the challenges that this industry brings so they can be the best version of themselves.”
I graduated from Paul Mitchell the school in Costa Mesa. I attended multiple classes from Riccardo including parametrics, mens, long layered cut, a-line, precision, and advanced color. I started doing hair by cutting my own hair and I had a really fun time doing it. I knew I had a natural gift and burning passion for it so I decided to build my life around it. I absolutely love my job! I get to meet all kinds of amazing, beautiful people and make them feel even more beautiful when they walk out. The studio salon is definitely my home. I've worked at this salon since it opened. I adore my coworkers and my boss and couldn't ask to be surrounded by better people. I have big plans for my future. I started straight out of high school because I have a passion for learning and I knew I wanted to become the best as fast as I can.
My ultimate goal is to provide a comfortable and positive environment for my clients!
I love working behind the chair but I've also traveled with Riccardo to multiple beauty schools in Southern California teaching and offering classes outside of school for them to come take from us. There are so many aspects of the beauty industry that inspire me. I'm passionate about educating not others but also myself. I love sharing my knowledge with anyone and everyone. I love continuing my own education because the industry is always changing and growing and I want to make sure I am, too!
