My name is Kelly Kim. I am a licensed cosmetologist and the owner of Waxing by Kelly. I attended the Aveda Institute of Charlotte and graduated in early 2007. While in school I was introduced to many different aspects of the beauty industry. Surprisingly I found that I had an innate talent and interest in body waxing. Once I graduated I decided to begin my own business from home so that I could stay home with my two small children. First, I began advertising myself online and through word of mouth and then quickly gained a loyal client base. This was when I officially became "Waxing by Kelly". Over the years my business grew and I was able to move it to it's new home at Cassandra’s Family Salon and Day Spa. After a few weeks I decided to look into other business ventures that would enable me to offer my clients more options. After much research I discovered something amazing that just hit the market, the Smooth Sculpt System. I traveled to Verona, New Jersey to learn more and receive training. I was able to take a model with me to practice the system on. After seeing for myself the transforming results I was sold. I bought the machine and excitedly brought it back home to North Carolina. In 2013 I became a waxing educator through Satin Smooth. Traveling the east part of the US teaching other licensed professionals the art of waxing.
My love and dedication to my job shows in my work. I am passionate about what I do because I know it helps make a difference in people's lives. It is of the upmost importance to me to make sure my clients are comfortable with me as their cosmetologist. Therefore, I conduct my business with ethical professionalism. Privacy is always maintained when working with clients. I take pride in what I do and comfort in knowing I helped make someone look and feel good about themselves. The best part of my job is knowing I had a part in boosting someone’s confidence.
