Kim
Stylist

Coming from a strong customer service background, it’s most important to me to create a unique and memorable experience for my client.  I grew up around the salon and beauty industry and have obtained techniques from my experiences that helped shape my approach to hair styling.  I focus on enhancing my client's natural beauty with a combination of a personal consultation, and a tailored signature haircut and color that would compliment her bone structure and skin and eye tones.  My passion for hair styling, is derived from the reaction to the end result.  The “It looks amazing, how did you do that?” reaction continues to fuel my career.  This industry has brought great opportunities such as doing hair for a TV Show, “Sweet Home Alabama,” various Hair Shows, and Wedding and Party Updo’s and makeup.
