Heidi Kim


“I love the energy at The Salon by Maxime,” says Heidi Kim. “There is so much daylight that breaks through the windows and the ambiance is both calming to the clients and the staff, while there’s still this feeling of excitement.”

Perhaps Heidi loves a calm and exciting environment because it mirrors her style. First and foremost, a color expert, Heidi specializes in one-process color treatments that give clients a very polished and natural look.

Creating natural looks for her client results in longtime clients known for beautiful healthy hair – Daphne Zuniga, Leigh Taylor Young, Linda Gray and Joan Van Ark.

Born in Korea, Heidi trained in Honolulu at Bottega Antone, before heading east to Los Angeles in 1991. Heidi’s first stop in Beverly Hills was at the Juan Juan Salon, then on to Jose Eber, where she worked for 12 years and became the artistic director for the color department.

While on staff at Jose Eber, Heidi colored hair for several high profile television programs, including Oprah, Sally Jesse Raphael, Leeza Gibbons and Extreme Makeover.
