MEET KIM

Hey Babe! My name is Kim and I am so glad that you’re here. I am super passionate about giving ladies with fine hair the look that they have always dreamed about through luxury extensions. I truly believe that confidence comes from within. Luxury Extensions are just the cherry on top that projects how you feel internally, so the world can see you for who you truly are.

As a Fine Hair Specialist, I am committed to making sure that what we do in the salon is promoting your natural hair growth and helping you recover from any previous hair extension damage. If you don’t have fine hair, you won’t get this… and that’s ok! When you have fine hair it literally feels like you’re the ONLY ONE. It absolutely affects us on a psychological level. Once you have had a bad experience with hair extensions it just makes it that much worse! (speaking from personal experience, check out my IG to follow along with my recovery journey)

MY "WHY"

This is exactly why I do what I do. I know how it feels to trust someone with the little hair that you DO have, and then lose hand-fulls of it at the next appointment and have an all-out meltdown, feel completely lost, not know what to do… and then have the stylist put them back in because you feel naked without the extensions. 

 

I do believe that it is possible to recover from extension damage WHILE wearing hair extensions (I am on the same journey right now!) but in order to do that you have to see someone who is an expert at their craft and specializes in fine hair. 

 

I have curated every aspect of your salon experience in order to do exactly this. From the methods that I use to install to the hair that I use… everything was chosen with you in mind and tailored specifically to you.

WHAT LIGHTS ME UP

I am an Independent Educator and Mentor specializing in Advanced Fine Hair Extensions and Mindset, Business, and Marketing. I work with independent artists ready for support in charting their own path in the extension world after completing their foundational education within an extension method company.

Outside of the salon, you can find me with a latte or glass of wine in hand while spending time with my family. I am married to Ben, my best friend of 10+ years and we have the privilege of doing life with our three rescue fur babies: Widdle, Ahsoka, and Teddy. All four of them absolutely love it when I work from home and take full advantage of the extra cuddle time.

 

Ben and I are major travel junkies and love ticking a few countries off our bucket list every year. We live a minimalist lifestyle that prioritizes experiences over things and quality over quantity... which in my opinion is the BEST way to protect your peace and live a beautiful life that is full of meaning and intention which is the truest form of happiness.
