While attending College, Kim also worked for the Horst Salons. Horst was the founder of Aveda.

Philosophy: Kim believes that hair should be fun, not scary or intimidating. Hair not only changes with the fashion seasons, it is something that can change daily depending on the individual's mood, clothing, and even the weather. Kim takes a natural approach to hair; it is not enough to keep clients current with styles that enhance their features, but their hair also needs to be manageable enough to go with daily changes. Kim teaches her clients to embrace their hair, and then play with it!
