Hi I’m Kayla!


Kayla Castro knew that she was destined for the hair industry from a very young age.  After a childhood of practicing haircuts on dolls and teaching herself to braid (at age five!) she couldn’t wait to get into the game for real.  Fast forward to summer 2006, just two weeks after graduating high school, Kayla enrolled in Sutter Beauty College in Yuba City, CA.  Her education only served to further her thirst for knowledge, but it was her love of the craft that drove her to participate in the Beauty Changes Lives Competition for advanced hair. 

Relocation to Florida did not hinder her constant drive for knowledge and growth. In recent years, Kayla has been featured on numerous hair brand Instagram pages including@cosmoprofbeauty, @kadusfamily, @wellaeducation, and @kadusprousa.  In recognition of her talents, Kayla was chosen as one of Beauty Launchpad’s 30 under 30 rising colorists in 2018, in The Colorist magazine.

In an effort to keep her skills on the cutting edge of the industry, Kayla has earned certificates from Vidal Sassoon ABC Cutting, Hairdreams Extensions, and Lala’s Updos’ bridal workshop.  She is also Keratin Complex certified and was granted a certificate in advanced balayage from The Business of Balayage.  She is constantly attending bridal workshops, Wella classes and has even attended an Instagram business class/photography led by well-known artist Daryna Barykina.  

Her constant drive and boundary pushing have not gone unnoticed.  Kayla remains one of @kadusfamily’s talented Instagram influencers and has even turned her talent’s to educating young stylists in her role as brand ambassador for Amika.

From coast-to-coast, student-to-expert, influencer-to-educator, one constant in Kayla’s life has been the drive to push her boundaries, learn the latest techniques and, of course, keep her client family looking bomb!
