Kim Olson - Hair Therapy Salon & Day Spa Columbia MO
Kim is not accepting new clients at this time.
My name is Kim Olson, I have dedicated my hairstyling career to empowering clients to achieve their beauty goals and feel confident since 1993. As the owner-operator of Hair Therapy, it brings me immense joy to guide and nurture our talented team, helping them fulfill their career aspirations and turn their dreams into reality. We take pride in having a group of professionals who are passionate about serving our guests, ensuring they feel refreshed, rejuvenated, and, most importantly, heard.

With a thriving career as a hairstylist, I was inspired to establish my business Hair Therapy Salon in 2010. Since then, we have continued to evolve by enhancing our services and expanding our expertise. In 2018, I purchased our current building and introduced spa services, transforming our establishment into Hair Therapy Salon & Day Spa.

Throughout my journey, I have had the privilege of learning from industry experts who have significantly contributed to my growth. I have received invaluable teachings on razor cutting and business strategies from the renowned hair guru and TV personality, Nick Arrojo. The art of Ombre and Balayage has been mastered through the guidance of the esteemed "Balaylama" herself, Candy Shaw. In addition, I have honed my skills in formal hairstyling by attending classes led by Louis Alvarez, the CEO and educator of Aquage, and his creative team. As a certified cutting specialist through Deva Curl, I am passionate about educating my team on curly hair cutting and styling, enabling us to best serve the curly hair community. Our commitment to excellence extends to our expertise in color theory and techniques, which we have learned extensively from Kevin Murphy. By utilizing our knowledge of the Kevin.Murphy Color line, we ensure that our clients receive the exceptional and customized color results they seek and deserve.

In 2020, I embarked on a journey of personal and professional growth by immersing myself in various coaching programs and business education. These experiences, including the coaching programs led by Dr. Susie Carder, author of Power Your Profits, and Amy Carter with Empowering You Consulting, have equipped me with invaluable tools and strategies to navigate and grow my business amidst the challenges posed by the pandemic. Currently, I am fortunate to be coached by Ronit Enos, the author of Profit First For Salons, through her Salon Cadence coaching program. This guidance is propelling me towards my next phase of transitioning from being behind the chair to full-time CEO, while continuously motivating and guiding me to scale and expand Hair Therapy Salon & Day Spa.

When I'm not devoted to the salon, I cherish my time spent with family and friends. I enjoy going to the movies, indulging in a good book, and embarking on road trips with my husband to discover unique dining experiences and explore charming small towns. As parents to two young boys, my husband and I are incredibly grateful for our journey to parenthood, which involved overcoming eight years of infertility and receiving extensive medical assistance. Parenthood has been an incredibly challenging yet immensely rewarding adventure, and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.
