Kate Mell

Stars of The Highlands 2022

Owner I Siva Beauty and Hair – Body andΒ Soul

An environmentalist at heart and beauty therapist guru, everyone meet Kate! She has been in the industry for 30 years and is the owner of Siva Beauty and Hair – Body and Soul. Community is a big part of her life and she considers herself very lucky as she gets to see a wide range of clients daily, with some have turned into lifelong friendships.


Not only is she a lover of beauty and hair, but she also loves dancing! Kate has come onboard as a Star to have some fun and show support for her beloved community and Cancer Council NSW. When she was younger, this beauty queen participated in competitive Highland dancing and dabbled in a few other genres, so she is no stranger to a stage. While we may not see Kate cartwheel across the stage, she is happy to learn and give anything a go. Get ready to see her transform into a dancing queen!

Good Luck, Kate!


Dance Partner


Marisol Santos

Marisol began her dance career at the age of 11 where she studied ballet and flamenco dance at the GGY School of Dance in Canley Vale, NSW.

In 1988 the flamenco dance troupe ‘Castañuelas’ (Castanets) was formed at the dance school and Marisol was one of the first dancers to perform with the group. She performed extensively throughout NSW and the ACT performing at restaurants, functions, weddings, festivals and cultural events such as the yearly National Folkloric Festival at the Sydney Opera House.

After moving from Sydney to Moss Vale, Marisol launched her flamenco dance school ‘Flamenco Solymar’ (2013) where she began to teach classes in flamenco dance. In 2014 she also began teaching Spanish (her native language).

More recently, Marisol continues to share her love and passion of flamenco and Spanish culture with the Southern Highlands community through teaching and performing.

Flamenco Solymar perform at many community and charity events including the Stars of the Highlands.

Marisol has proudly participated in this important event in 2017, 2018 and 2019..
