“We have lost one of the Most amazing people that I've ever had the pleasure of knowing.

“Katie had the most magnetic personality, everyone was so drawn to her, she was loved by everyone around her.

“She was without a doubt the best hairdresser I have ever met in my 26 years and I don't think anyone will disagree.

“She will be sadly missed.

“Our sincerest condolences to her husband Lukasz, son Noah (her world) and all of her family.”
