Stylist: Kim

Kim has been doing my hair for the last 2 years and is by far the best stylist I've ever had. My hair is the healthiest it's ever been and looks the best it ever has - especially today after seeing her just yesterday! There are many things that set Kim apart from other stylists so I will mention a few here: Kim doesn't just think about how you look when you walk out of her salon but she thinks about the future health and look of your hair. Kim does my highlights (blond) and cut or trim. She listens to what I want and then gives me her ideas or thoughts, always based on what will be best for the health of my hair and what will look best. Kim gives useful tips for how to take care of my hair at home - but not in an annoying way as if you've been doing it all wrong - and often her tips are unique and not something I've heard in the past. And they work! Kim's prices are fair and the whole experience of seeing her is great - we have great conversations and she adapts really well to different types of clients. For me, I used to dread going to a stylist who would either talk non-stop or not talk at all. With Kim it's just really comfortable. She has lots of experience, great ideas and a great work space. And let's face it, it always makes a client feel more comfortable when the stylist has great hair herself! I wholeheartedly recommend Kim to anyone - she knows how to work with all different types of hair.

I have been going to Kim for about 6 months. She has been fantastic with helping me transition from chemically relaxed hair to my natural hair. She is knowledgeable about the various products I can use in my transition and has helped me with my own home care. It has been a real pleasure to have Kim do my hair. She is very prompt, organized attentive to my needs while she is doing my hair. If I have a question for Kim about a product I can always send her an email or give her a quick call and she responds quickly. I am not sure why I hadn't gone to her sooner, but I wouldn't give her up for anything now! Thanks Kim

I went to Kim for the first time the other day (April 2013), based on the reviews I read on this site. All the positive reviews were 100% accurate - Kim is AMAZING! I have wavy/curly hair, and every stylist I've ever been to has said "just get layers...layers is what works with curly hair". Well, I always ended up with the same boring hairstyle, and could never figure out how to actually style it properly (unless I used a lot of styling product, which caused build-up in my hair and made it look stringy). I was pretty skeptical, even with all the positive reviews (who knows how legit they really are, right?); but,I saw a great promotion on the Born With It website, and thought "it can't hurt to try, especially for the price". Well, let me tell you - it was a fantastic experience! I used the promotion to try Kim out, and she's now got a forever client. She was amazing - she cut my hair dry (which I've read on curly girl sites is how it's supposed to be done). Then she washed it and styled it for me, but told me step by step what I needed to do to achieve beautiful curls/waves. Before, I used a TON of gel (2 different types) in my hair, diffused it, and then used another product to 'scrunch out the crunch'. With Kim, I now use a little bit of conditioner as a leave in treatment, and then the smallest amount of gel ever. I was skeptical about this small amount of gel - how would it tame the frizz? But it did!! And there was no crunch. Kim answered any question I had about how to style my hair, and offered great suggestions on how to get more volume (I have thin, fine hair). It was really nice to finally have someone explain what was going on with my curly hair and why I needed to do certain steps in my styling process (rather than just saying "scrunch your hair", she would explain how to do it, why she was doing it, how often I should wash my hair with shampoo and conditioner vs. just conditioner, etc.). Honestly, Kim is awesome. She's nice, she explains everything she does, and she doesn't charge an arm and a leg for her services. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

I have been seeing Kim for years now. She is honestly the best stylist I have ever seen. She has the skills and patience to turn my sometimes unruly hair into a masterpiece. With every cut, she takes the time to show and teach me a new and different way to style my hair. I always leave this salon feeling more than satisfied, and confident in my new look. Kim is a meticulous stylist. She listens to all of my concerns and always gives a full consultation before every cut. On one occasion when I was having trouble catching on to the new technique she taught me. I was able to come back into the salon, and she stayed and instructed me until I was able to master the technique. Which of course I greatly appreciated. When I come in for my appointments I feel welcome and comfortable. The atmosphere in the salon is friendly, interactive and professional. I refer my own family and friends and clients to this salon.

KIM TREATED WITH THE MOST PROFESSIONALISM AND PERSONAL ATTENTION THAT I HAVE EVER RECEIVED AT ANY SALON. SHE HAD A THOROUGH CONSULTATION TO ASK ME THE DO'S AND DO'NT'S OF WHAT I DO WITH MY HAIR, WHICH I WAS WOWED BY BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER BEEN ASKED SO MANY QUESTIONS BEFORE HAVING MY HAIR DONE. I WAS VERY EXCITED TO SEE THE RESULTS OF MY HAIR, I HAVE NEVER SEEN MY HAIR FALL SO PERFECTLY IN PLACE, KIM KNOWS WHAT SHE IS CREATING WITH HAIR. MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY ALL NOTICED MY HAIR, WHICH HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. I WILL SPREAD THE NEWS ABOUT THIS FANTASTIC SALON.

Kim is the best, she has been styling my hair for the last 2 years and I don’t know how my hair survived before her. You can be rocking your natural curls or a relaxer; she will guide you on the path to healthy hair. She gives great recommendations on the best products for your hair type, and the best ways to use the products. I’m transitioning from a relaxer back to my natural curls and I cannot imagine doing it without Kim to guide me. I have never sat in a stylist chair and not worry about what is being done to my hair or how it will look until I meet Kim, I trust her a 100%. She is amazing :)

My life with curls has changed forever since I met Kim! I had been searching for a hairstylist that I could go to, pay my money and leave with my hair looking good! Not getting it cut then having to go home, wash it and style it myself! Then I found her. I have been going to Kim for about 3 yrs and have been so impressed! I even walk around with her cards in my purse because everyone stops me to compliment me on my curls and my cut! Not only will Kim give you a beautiful cut and style, but she will teach you how to deal with your naturally curly hair! If you aren't in love with your curls yet, Kim will start the love affair. She understands our issues because she has curls herself! And with the curls that she is rocking, one look at her and you know she knows what she is doing! The personal attention, the cut and style and then all the compliments after, will keep you coming back to see her! Probably forever like me!

Kim flat ironed my hair December 28th. I was very nervous getting my hair straightened, since I had heard horror stories about naturals getting heat damage and losing their curl pattern. Kim eased my worries and walked me through every step. She used quality products that made my hair soft and moisturized. I plan to incorporate the shampoo into my regular routine. My hair was silky straight when she was done. It looked like a relaxer. It lasted for almost two weeks and when I washed again my curls came back. I highly recommend Kim. She is very knowledgeable about natural hair and her prices are reasonable.

I have found Kim to be such a talented stylist. She knows so much about curly hair and spends time to show you how to work with what you have suggesting the right products and styling techniques to achieve a salon look for your hair at home so you always have good hair! I could not be more happy with finding her!

All I can say is "THANK GOD" I found Kim. I have been going to Kim for only three weeks now and already there is such an amazing difference in my hair that people are stopping me on the street. I have naturally curly hair that doesn't behave at all and what's worse is that it's so thick in the middle. I don't use relaxers or any form of chemical in my hair so taming it was a struggle and a half. My biggest issue with alot of salons is they use so much products on my hair and it just weighs it down, although I have alot of hair it's also fine at the root and I could never find anyone who understands that. Kim gets that and she takes the time to get a good sense of the structure of your hair even before starting to shampoo. She has an amazing ability to bring out the natural beauty in my hair without barely any hair products at all. She truly believes that every woman is "born with it" and it's all about proper care, nurturing and attention. She treats every client with a personal touch and anyone that goes to her even for just one visit will not be dissapointed. BTW she's also super nice too:)

Words can not describe how much I trust kim with my hair. She is the ONLY one that gets it right. i have tried different salons and stylist in the past but nothing can compare to the talent kim has. she understands my hair needs, from my cut to the products. Without kim my hair would be a total mess. I joke with her all the time, if I win the lotto she would be my personal stylist. Kim is no joke, she IS the best in the biz!

I have highly recommend Kim to all of my family and friends. Her caring personality and willingness to listen to my concerns (thinning hair) and life style (busy mom of three), allowed her to cut and style my hair like to other. Thank you again and I looking forward to our next appointment.
