“I’d rather be someone’s shot of whiskey than everybody’s cup of tea”


Nickname: Kimmie
Personal Style: Rocker Chic
Favourite Product: American Crew Forming Cream

I started doing hair over 14 years ago after I graduated from MC College when it was at the old downtown location back in the day. About 5 years ago I started working at a barber shop and I got hands on training learning how to do hot shaves and clipper tattoos. I still do some ladies hair but only if it’s a short style or a hair tattoo. Mostly I focus on men’s cuts and barbering techniques. In school you learn how to do men’s cuts but barbering really helps you learn specialized techniques.

I’m usually really energetic, adventurous, and I like to try new things. I’m not really a “girly girl” – my look is more of a rock chic; I like leather, sparkles, and skulls.

I specialize in barbering services: men’s cuts, hot shaves, and clipper tattoos. I also don’t mind doing kid’s hair, some people get nervous or annoyed but I like kids. I like to do newer fashion styles because it’s often a challenge and not something you get taught in school, like a tight fade with some great length on top (which is actually technically quite difficult). I like doing something new, fresh, maybe even a little eccentric.

Growing up I honestly had never dreamed of becoming a stylist/barber but I love what I do! I’m glad I discovered my passion and have had the opportunity to continueI’m so happy to be a part of the great team we have here at Plan B.
