Kim Fuchs
Specializing in Haircutting and Coloring

Experience: Kim Fuchs has been in the business for over thirty years. Kim has extensive training in advanced haircutting. Her advance training began at The Gene Juarez Salons where she worked for thirteen years. While working at this company, Kim taught advanced haircutting and was the design leader of her Salon. Kim fronted a continuing education program at her salon and continued teaching in the program. During this time Kim learned the teachings and philosophy's behind the French haircutting techniques from the best teachers in the business; she became proficient enough to teach it for not only Gene Juarez, but other companies as well.
   Kim lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota for four years attending the University of Minnesota where she earned a bachelor of science degree in psychology and social work. While attending College, Kim also worked for the Horst Salons. Horst was the founder of Aveda. During this period, Kim continued with her advanced training in haircutting along with learning hair color techniques.
   After Kim graduated from College, she moved back to Seattle where she continued in the hair industry. During this time Kim learned how to do hair extensions from an internationally known teacher based in L.A. and in Amsterdam. Kim worked for The Cristy Carner Salon in Freemont as a sole-proprietor before she found her perfect location for her own salon - Swoop! While at Swoop, Kim earned accolades from Seattle Magazine and Allure Magazine for her haircuts and natural styling.
   After over 10 years, Kim sold the Salon to current owner, Jeff Cunningham who has worked at Swoop for over a decade. Kim continues to work at Swoop and gets to devote all of her attention to her clientele.

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!
