Agency: Artists by Timothy Priano (NY)
Kathy Aragon, daughter of a salon/spa owner, got her start working in the family's business. "I can't say when I first developed a passion for the beauty industry," says Aragon. "I think I was born into it." From a young age, Aragon proved a jack-of-all trades, mastering hairstyling, coloring, makeup, skincare and even marketing and advertising for her family's business. Aragon quickly realized her skills were more than just a way to help family - they were the beginning of a more focused career.

Her work has appeared in outlets including Vogue, Elle, Glamour, CosmoGirl!, People and New York Magazine as well as HDTV appearances for media personalities and clients such as Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer, CNN, HBO, MTV and more.

She is also frequently tasked with styling both hair and makeup for an impressive list of celebrities including names like Demi Moore, America Ferrera, Ian Sommerhalder, and Betty White.
Today, Kathy maintains a reputation for being a team player who is able to achieve clean and beautiful looks on a fast-paced schedule.
