Kyle Gates.

After spending 6 years in the United States Army, I decided to pursue a civilian career. I attended a traditional college for two years and decided a more artistic environment would better suit me. I attended Paul Mitchell the School- Gastonia and have been hooked ever since. I fell in love with the art of hairdressing and the power to make someone feel beautiful.

While in school, I earned the privilege of assisting at a major beauty industry trade show. After working backstage with the Paul Mitchell National Education Team, I knew there was no better place to be than under the wing of someone who was currently living the life I dreamed of for myself. Through mentoring and aggressively training with the finest talent available, I have developed my own unique style behind the chair. The discipline and attention to detail instilled in me as an Infantry Medic has carried over into my hairdressing career. I love seeing a guest’s face after a beautiful color and laser-sharp cut- it’s as if they never knew their hair could do that!

In addition to owning Alchemy: the workshop, I’m also a “boots on ground” Director, spending much of my time assisting; constantly looking for opportunities to grow. The Alchemy: brand was built to give  passionate hairdressers a stable home where they could adapt and overcome the many challenges every stylist is faced with. I’m a passionate hairdresser and that passion bleeds through on each and every person that walks through these doors.
