Kate Carter Beauty
My home salon is based in Dundrum, Dublin, where I offer a wide range of beauty services and treatments which cater to everyone. I specialise in eyelash extension treatments, bridal/event make-up and eyebrows!
As well as running my business, I am a full time undergraduate at IADT college where I study Business Entrepreneurship and Management. I am starting into my fourth and final year on the degree course which I really enjoy.
I officially set up my business KCB just over a year ago now. Having over 6 years experience in the beauty industry, extensive knowledge and expertise in training and treatments, various qualifications and certificates, and having won a number of business enterprise awards, it was a no-brainer that I set down the entrepreneurial path.
I have always been a very creative, driven, independant and motivated individual, I would always find ways of making money by doing something that I loved, even if it involved helping all of my friends do their make-up for the teenage discos before my own!
I was very artistic from a young age, as I grew up and was introduced to beauty, I became obsessed with the industry. My love for art and beauty merged together.
My perfectionism and attention to detail shines through in all my work. I am very lucky to have built a very loyal clientele, consisting of all types of beautiful people ranging from ages 14 - 60 years.
I recently took part in the Media Cube’s Business Bootcamp 2020, it was a great experience I will never forget. I learnt so much from each session, it was amazing to network with like-minded people, and to top it off I was awarded the “Most Promising Entrepreneur Award” for my final pitch on my KCB Natural Lash Cleansing product.
Like most small businesses, KCB was affected by COVID-19 restrictions, however since reopening I have been watching my business continue to grow at an incredible rate! I am always kept busy and I can only thank everyone who supports KCB through any kind of exposure, something so much as a like or a follow on my social media platforms means the world to me!
Without giving too much away, I have plenty of exciting things in the works for the future of KCB, including product launches, training courses, a new premises and much more, watch this space!
