Kimberly Michalik

Hairstyling since 1989, I entered the scene at an exciting time of spiral waves and voluminous hair. In an ever changing field I trained under some very talented professionals specializing in geometric haircuts, creating weight in fine hair, distributing weight in heavy hair and freeing up curls that lay static. My years of experience has given me the purpose of helping individuals look and feel confident about themselves. There is nothing more rewarding than having a reaction, “My hair has never looked this good” from a guest. Connecting with people and customizing a unique look for my clients, cut and color is so rewarding. 

Providing my clients with solutions to their hair or scalp challenges drives me to further my knowledge of the latest innovations and trends. I’ve enjoyed dedicating myself to extensive education, creating a better version of myself, and being a leader within my industry for over three decades.

I have always had a strong passion for scalp and hair wellness. Keeping the integrity of health in mind, I believe that if one takes care of themself from the inside first, the outside will radiate with beauty. I absolutely love what I do as a career and so do the stylists I employ and mentor. I have confidence you will feel the positive energy within our salon the moment you step into our doors.

I joined the cosmetology industry in 2016 after graduating from Lytle’s Beauty College. I am devoted to my continuing education and making sure I have all the latest knowledge and skills to provide clients with their dream hair. 

Over my career, I have discovered a specific passion for the patience and nuances required for both color corrections and blonding. The perfect color is a mix of science, experience, and creativity. I find the work that goes into achieving that color is an energizing challenge that never gets old. 

I am also a Babe Hair Extension master stylist. My extension work can be both subtle and extreme. I love what some added fullness and/or length can do for a client’s confidence. I have also been trained as a scalp therapist, to help promote natural hair growth.  It is important to me that I can provide every client with a personal solution to any hair loss problem they may have. 

Around the salon, I can be found with a caffeinated beverage in my hand and a spring in my step (probably from all the caffeine). At home though, I am usually soaking up some vitamin D by the pool with my kindle in hand and cat on my lap.

I’ve been a stylist at Dolce Vita since 2019. After graduating from the associate program here I earned a position within the salon to master and hone my skills further. I enjoy continuing my education outside of the salon to keep up with new trends and techniques. I have had the opportunity to watch and recreate online education with Ashlee Norman, Carly Zanoni and Nick Berardi. I am certified in Babe hair extensions and working on obtaining my Masters of Balayage degree with Ryan Weeden. What is most rewarding about this career is being able to make people feel beautiful whether it’s touching up their roots, giving them a fresh cut, applying makeup, or a full color restoration project. I love being able to enhance someone’s beauty and give them a boost in confidence. When I am not at the salon, I am usually at home with my dog, Benji, or hiking with my boyfriend. I’m looking forward to maybe seeing you in my chair some day soon. ~Alexis
