About Kathryn Bennett
Welcome to Kat Bennett’s Hair Studio! I have been behind the chair for 25 years and have owned my own studio for 23 years. I studied at Vidal Sassoon in London and have attended numerous seminars and classes to stay up to date with the latest trends. I moved to Seattle early in my career and studied under nationally known Schwarzkopf artist as an apprentice which gave me a great deal of experience with many different types of hair and hair color. I also worked as an Artec educator and truly enjoyed sharing my craft with my peers. I LOVE to color hair using the latest balayage, foiling, and painting techniques. It is amazing to see how a person can totally transform their entire look with the right hair color that compliments their complexion. A few pops of highlights around your face can dramatically enhance your eye color and put spring in your step. I use Lumishine Permanent Haircolor, Redken Shadeseq, and only the best, high quality lighting agents. I also offer Olaplex as an add-on service as well as a stand alone service. I love to cut hair and create the perfect shape for my clients face, personality, and lifestyle. Hair is truly my passion. Thank you so much for stopping by my page and I hope to hear from you soon! Feel free to text, call, or email me for available appointment times. I accept all major credit cards, checks, and cash

Kat Bennett was recommended to me 3 years ago when I moved to Raleigh. As most women know one of the hardest things about moving is leaving your hairdresser and finding someone who can replicate your style. Worry no more, Kat is your girl! I came armed with my color recipe and instructions on how to cut my thick wavy hair from my previous stylist to get that perfect blowout. Kat was so gracious and made me feel at ease right from the beginning. She even went out of her way to purchase the exact brand of color so we could get a perfect match. Even after 3 years, Kat still takes the time to discus what we want to accomplish at each appointment, and is very supportive of my goals. I am extremely picky about my hair and she never disappoints. Kat makes awesome product recommendations too, my hair is so grateful! So, go relax and enjoy being pampered by Kathryn Bennett!!

I’ve been a client of Kat’s for over 8 years and have always been happy from the moment I leave her chair. She listens to what look you’re trying to achieve and offers suggestions based on her expertise and your hair. Kat is always looking for new products to enhance her clients’ hair and has a selection of products to purchase. Her salon is always clean and comfortable and Kat manages appointments well and runs on time. She offers flexible times throughout the week so scheduling an appointment is easy.


Best ever! Five stars. Kathryn (Kat) always does a fabulous job cutting, styling, and coloring my hair. I always get an appointment within the time-frame I request. She does a great job, is delightful, efficient, and knowledgeable. I recommend her without hesitation. She is absolutely delightful.


Kat's studio is always clean and cheery. She listens to my ideas for what kind of hair style I request. She makes the magic happen under her expert hands. I love my natural looking hair color and the layers in my wavy hair. Kat Bennett is more than my hairstylist, I count her as my friend.


Kat is a fabulous hair dresser and has become a wonderful friend. I cannot begin to count the number of times that a stranger has approached me while shopping and asked where I had my hair cut or highlighted. She has done my hair for years, along with my daughters and mother. Whether you are young, old or somewhere in between Kat will help you find and create a stylish look that is your own. She is also a compassionate friend that helped both me, and my daughter, through our respective bouts with cancer. Kat made appointments at the wig shop and we went together to select a look that complimented our face and looked very natural. When it came time to crop our hair during chemo she made it a loving but light-hearted event. We laughed our way through what could have been a traumatic time and embraced our new looks with confidence. Kat, thank you for taking such good care of us and helping us look marvelous!!!!

Kathryn has been my hairdresser for over 15 years and I would and have recommended her to everyone. She does a great job with my cut and color and isn’t afraid to tell me when I walk in with a bad idea for my hair. She is also a very fun person to be around! I highly recommend Kathryn Bennett.


Kat never disappoints! Great colorist & stylist! I often receive compliments on my hair. She is professional, personable and has “on trend” ideas. Kat can also go “old school” for my elderly Mom!


Kat has been doing my hair for more than twenty years. My hair is very fine-textured with no body. Somehow Kat always gives me a great haircut. I just comb my wet hair and go. No blow drying required. I never have a bad hair day. People are always surprised to learn this is not my natural hair color. Kat's a miracle worker.

Kat has been doing my hair for 12 years now and there is no one else I would trust with my hair! She has the amazing ability to take my somewhat cryptic descriptions of what I’d like my hair to look like and make it happen. I look forward to 12 more years with her!

I have been going to Kathryn to have my hair cut and colored for the past 22 years. I have never wavered or tried someone new because Kat does such an amazing job! I have very curly hair which can be a challenge, but not for Kat! I get compliments on my hair and the color job on a regular basis which makes me feel like a million bucks! I couldn't live without her!!
