So, in the rest of the writing, we shall exclusively discuss her.
Whitney Kilpatrick On Discovery’s HairStyle, The Talent Show
Early in November 2023, when Whitney Kilpatrick was finally able to talk about her participation in this reality show called HairStyle, The Talent Show, she literally shouted out her excitement on a social media post telling people to watch her compete as one of the top ten hairstylists in the US. She said it was an amazing journey with lots of highs and lows. In one of these promotional social media posts, she also gushed that she was super grateful to have been a part of this experience. She said she was “obsessed” with ink masters and used to ponder up challenges that hairstylists would have to do for a competition show as they did. Also, she shared that she would not have found any great excuse to get all dressed up and take red carpet photos.
Whitney Kilpatrick Career
As per LinkedIn, Whitney Kilpatrick has been the founder, CEO, and stylist at Maven Fort Worth Hair Co. in Fort Worth, Texas since January 2023.
Whitney was a teenager when she discovered YouTube, watched countless smokey eye tutorials, and learned how to master all the braids. Soon, she became the go-to beauty guru for all of her family and friends. So, when her school district opened a cosmetology school, enrolling was a no-brainer. She got her cosmetology license at 17 years old and this helped jump-start her career where she went straight to work for a Redken Elite commission salon. There, she spent 4 years building clientele and learning everything she possibly could about the industry. In 2019, armed with new and exciting knowledge, she decided to expand her business and opened her own salon Foiled Studio. Three years later, the salon outgrew its small space and was craving a change and so happened Maven, which Whitney claims is a sustainable, laid-back, and luxury hair salon. In between, Whitney also started a venture called Maven University to help hairstylists of all levels develop their skills, build their businesses, and reach their full potential.
Also known are Whitney’s late paternal grandparents Paul Burge and Betty Ford Burge, and late maternal grandparents Patricia Hedgpeth and Calmore Hedgpeth.
