|Mags Kavanaugh has worked in the industry for over 40 years. In that time she has worked as a
make-up artist & Cosmetologist for the theatre, TV, movies and has worked the Emmy’s & Oscars
every year making sure her celebrity clients look great on their special day! She’s owned 3 salons
in those 40 + years:
California Beauty Studios Inc. was an award winning salon voted “One of the Top 100 Salons in the USA” by the
prestigious Institute of Trichology, located in Clearwater Florida, and Mags has been voted
“Best Stylist in Tampa Bay” by Tampa Bay Magazine. She now educates and helps stylists gain the knowledge they are seeking.
Mags was the International Brand Ambassador for Compagnia Del Colore
Her other salons were the One Man Salon in Los Angeles California.
Mags has worked for 5 major color companies:
Clairol, which was her introduction to Logics, where she was a National Artistic Educator with Logics,
then Matrix bought Logics she then worked as a Master Artistic Educator, National Artistic Educator for both
companies and became a member of the Vivienne Mackinder’s Via Design Cutting & Coloring Team and
as a Trichologist & Chemist for Redken in the Canoga Park, California Labs.
Mags is the former the International Brand Ambassador for Compagnia Del Colore, Italy’s premiere colorline.
She began her career as Vidal Sassoon’s assistant, learning from the Master was a humbling, exciting adventure
but it was well worth it, working with Trevor Sorbie, Vivienne Mackinder, Dwight Miller, James Morrison and
many others who have shaped & molded her into the Educator she is today.
After working on the Matrix Message Board and as “Ask the Expert” for Matrix, Mags decide the industry needed a place where stylists could come, ask questions and get correct “by the book” answers so she created
www.AskMags.com, a Mentoring Educational Cosmetology Website.
She’s glad stylists have a haven, a place where they feel comfortable and know that they have help whenever they need it.
And she really means it when she says,
” There are no stupid questions, just the question NOT ASKED!”
