Katherine Graciano is a celebrity hair and makeup artist with over 20 years of experience in the industry. She inherited her passion for hair and beauty from her mother who was a hairstylist in their native Dominican Republic. Having worked as a specialist technician for the brand L’Oreal for their hair product line Redken, she traveled around the world where conventions and symposiums were held to keep up with the latest trends and changes in the industry. In 2008 Katherine started her own business, KG Beauty Salon, in Las Vegas. In the beginning she rented a chair at an existing Las Vegas salon, but a year later she had built enough clients to take the jump and start her very own salon. Over the years, Katherine has worked with a long list of celebrities including Maluma, Ana Patricia, Pamela Sued, Terry Fator, Carlos Vives, Holly Madison, Julian Gil, Sammy and Sonia Sosa, Milly Quezada, Rodner Figueroa, Maritza Del Portillo, Ricky Martin, Chiquienquira Delgado, Lourdes Stephen, Carlitos Calderon, William Valdes, Jessica Cediel, Mrs.Universe Ashley Burnham and many others.
Since 2010 Katherine has worked with multiple celebrities at the Latin Grammy Awards, and in 2012 and 2015 also invited to work at the Miss Universe contest with the reigning Mrs. Universe. In 2015 Katherine worked New York Fashion Week, PremioLo Nuestro, Mayweather Pacquiao Fight Week and Premios Juventud.
In 2012, Katherine founded KGcosmetics and introduced her own makeup line. She did it because her search for allergy friendly makeup, such as paraben and talc free products, seemed to be impossible at many of the big brand names, and to ensure she only uses the very best products on her clients. The skin is subject to so many weather and environmental challenges and allergies are on the rise, so the products you choose for your skin need to be as gentle to sensitive skin as possible. Under the slogan “Beauty Made Simple” Katherine has created the ultimate makeup palette for both the professional makeup artist, and the every day makeup consumer.

Katherine’s promise to her clients is to always be consistent and superior in all that she does. Her ultimate goal is to provide each client with an exceptional experience.
