Kimmie can quote The Office in her sleep, creates spreadsheets while she eats and can enjoy a good laugh with her team. Her determination is on point when it comes to making dreams a reality. When you hang out with her, you may just start believing in your own dream world (because she's going to help you google it and find it's meaning).
I first became a hairstylist because I wanted to find my place in the world. Hair gave me an avenue to express my creativity and figure out who I was. I fell in love with that freedom, and with giving it to others. After over 10 years in the industry, I saw how intimidating salons can be (especially for outcasts). That's what encouraged me to open Kalon Hair Lab. I really wanted to provide a space that felt like a welcomed part of the community - free from judgment.
I am fueled by compassion and purpose. I believe in challenging assumptions, limitations, and stories.
When I'm not investing in the salon and it's people, you can find me at home working on a DIY project or reading the latest fantasy adventure book. (I love a good fairytale retelling). I volunteer with animal rescue groups whenever I find the time, and specialize in the rehabilitation of neonatal kittens. To date, I have raised over 30 kittens that were otherwise abandoned. I can't say no to helping the underdog.
When you step inside Kalon, I hope to provide a welcome space that helps you embrace yourself. My goal is to bring back the community feel of salons. There's too much competition in the world as it is; we just want to see our neighbors thrive.
