Celebrity stylist, philanthropist and all around beauty entrepreneur Ron King is armed with more than two decades in the beauty industry. He gathers inspiration from his world travels, creating his own line of natural-looking cosmetics that complements his cuts and coloring services.
King has also developed his easy wear philosophy and through that has earned the title of "Austin's curly hair expert", adding volume and dimension with advanced cutting and color techniques like the natural-looking balayage highlighting application. King has worked with some of the most respected names in the industry, politics and Hollywood alike, having worked with President Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Mariska Hargitay, Katy Perry and George Lopez to name a few.
Despite his current status as celebrity stylist, beauty entrepreneur, philanthropist, and beauty and fashion personality, Ron King started his adult life as someone on the brink; not knowing where he was going to go or what he was going to do with his life. When a friend started attending beauty school, King took an immediate interest and found an innate passion in the beauty trade. At the time, he didn’t have the money or support to attend beauty school until he met one lady who believed in him, Mary Nielsen. She recognized his passion, drive and determination so she found the grants to send King to cosmetology, without him ever paying a dime. She changed his life. King would now like to pass on his good fortune to those in need who also have a passion and talent for beauty and style.
In 2010, Ron King launched The Ron King Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to sending hand-selected teens on the brink to cosmetology school with a full scholarship paid for by the foundation. The candidates for this scholarship are carefully chosen and have displayed the same drive and determination Ron employed in securing his dream to be as hair stylist and budding entrepreneur.
