Kim Taylor - Cosmetologist / Owner
Kim opened Essence hair, skin, and body on May 2, 2011 after taking a year and a half off to start a family. She used this time to nurture her twins and gain perspective on what is truly important in life- treating ourselves and each other well.
Prior to moving to Evergreen in 2008, Kim spent eight years operating a successful business as a hairstylist in her hometown of Bakersfield, California. She also served 3 ½ years as a member of the Italian Style Framesi hair color education team. Her training with Framesi has given her both a practical and functional understanding of the theory behind how hair color works; in turn she has been able to pass that knowledge along to many other colorists, helping to promote and preserve integrity and professionalism in the beauty industry.
Kim believes that the secret to being a great stylist starts with the ability to listen, understand, and respect each client’s needs and concerns without presumption. Armed with that understanding, a great stylist will then call upon her training to provide every client with a service that suits their individual needs.
A licensed Cosmetologist since 1995, Kim has always aspired to have her own salon. She has worked hard to create an environment that embodies all of the best qualities of the salons she has worked in over the years. She is committed to staffing Essence with professionals that truly stand out in their field, thus providing Evergreen with a truly amazing option for all of their beauty & body needs.
Kim is not currently taking new clients as she is focusing on growing the business and finding time to enjoy her kiddos as they grow.
