KJ Murphy is a Hair Artist in Denver, Colorado. He is a fourth generation native to the state and loves everything Colorado has to offer.
He started off his career in beauty as a makeup artist. It started with basic theater makeup, then special effect makeup, and ended with body art and beauty.
Because of this he decided to go into the cosmetology/barbering field and become licensed for his many skills. He received his education from Paul Mitchell the school in Colorado Springs, where he was able to stand out and start creating his world. From there he continued to work on his dreams in and out of the salon.
He quit doing makeup shortly after beauty school once he started working behind the chair and found his real passion for hair. Dedicating himself to his craft KJ has worked on countless photo shoots, runways shows, editorial projects, and fashion events. He continues to push himself harder every day to be the best he can by taking many extended education classes and hands on training from some of the top hairdressers in the industry.
He has entered into countless competitions, including 2015 Beacon where he was announced as one of the top 100 cosmetology students in the nation. KJ plans to keep on this path of hair and hopes to become a platform artist and editorial stylist. He wants to be able to share his love for the art of hair with other and inspire people to be their very best self’s, inside and outside.
Please Enjoy KJ Murphy’s work as much as he has enjoyed creating it for you.
