With a Cosmetology License in one hand and a Psychology degree in the other, I’m ready to make you feel beautiful…
Hello! My name is Kristen Marie Kimball. I have been an art student since birth, and a licensed beauty worker since 2001. I attended beauty school originally to enter a career that allowed me to continue my education in Art & Psychology. I was serious about learning my craft and was hired to train as a colorist at a high end Bumble & Bumble salon before I graduated Cosmetology school. A short lived but wonderful whirlwind of education & experience!
I left to study Psychology at UC Santa Cruz. The next 8 years I worked in youth development, specializing in teen/tween survivors of abuse and trauma. I loved my work in youth empowerment and helping families heal, but it was time for me to switch to a more creative career.
In 2014 I opened my own business and started to grow my clientele. After owning a single chair salon downtown Redwood City for 2 & 1/2 years, I decided to refocus my business to on-set work and beauty empowerment thru hair or make-up styling lessons.
I have worked in the bridal industry since 2004 helping people hone their look for their special day. I love traditional clean looks, but boho, romantic and entirely unique looks excite me as well.
People call me their Beauty Godmother.
