Kimberly K Hair Studio Illinois

Kimberly Hood

When Kimberly was in college at Bradley University in Peoria, she’d come home on the weekends to work at Barbara Harmison’s Chicagoland salon.

Those weekends were educational to Kimberly as they taught her the ins and outs of the beauty business. It made her want to create an environment where all women and men could feel comfortable, something she’s done with the new Kimberly K Hair Studio. Her passion for creativity began in college where she studied design and communications.

Kimberly’s passion has always been hair. This passion led her after college to the Marshall Field’s design team of Chicago and to the Salon Partners educational team in Naperville, Illinois. After completing training, she became a Schwarzkopf educator and opened up her first salon in 1998.

The success of her first business compelled Kimberly to team up with Barbara Harmison to build an even better salon. Together, Kimberly and Barbara created the Studio 21 Salon and Day Spa, which operated for 14 years in two locations in the Chicagoland area.

Longtime clients of Studio 21 know the level of expertise, precision and creativity Kimberly brings to her cuts and color. But now with Kimberly K Hair Studio, she’s taken all her experience and put it to use in the creation of her ideal styling environment for women and men.
