Kim’s Hair Haven Salon, located at 60 South Cascade Drive in Springville, is a salon for “all ages, hair types and genders.”
Owner Kim Burch is a hairstylist who went back to school to learn how to cut hair after she had graduated high school.
“I’ve always wanted to do hair and I knew it was something I could fall back on,” she said.
But instead, it has become a successful career for Burch. She has worked at other salons in the past, but one year ago this week she took the leap to become her own boss.
Burch opened Kim’s Hair Haven Salon last July and said she is loving her success and the freedom to spend more time with her family.
In fact, Burch expressed that, “My daughter, Karly, wants to go into hair as well.”
But hairstyling runs in the family beyond just Burch’s daughter. She said her great-grandmother also knew how to style hair.
Burch said she loves her customers and specializes in color, including “T-zone highlights, full color, ombre” and more.
Looking to the future, Burch said she hopes her business continues to grow.
She said she enjoys “doing anything that makes the customer happy,” presenting them with a “cozy atmosphere.”
Kim’s Hair Haven Salon takes walk-ins or appointments and is open Monday and Tuesday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Contact Burch at 560-8549, or her Facebook page “Kim’s Hair Haven Salon.”
