Kari Cowperthwaite

COLORIST

While in high school, Kari’s involvement with musical theater productions led to her interest in fashion and makeup. After attending cosmetology school, Kari worked in New York City, shampooing and sweeping hair before coming to train at Akari’s apprentice program. After five years at Akari, further education with Goldwell and Bumble and Bumble and becoming one of our most talented and sought after colorists, Kari decided to pursue the wanderlust in her heart and spend a year traveling in Australia and New Zealand. We are so happy to have Kari back in Portland with the Akari family and to watch the beautiful hair she creates each day.
