Portrait KIM b&W.jpg

Kim Paulsen

Hi! My name is Kim and I'm a hairstylist at TresImage. 


I specialize in cutting and coloring hair for all ages and hair types, for men, women and children. Working with natural hair and gray coverage is just as much fun for me as vivid colors and artistic placement. I enjoy working with long, flowing layers - in fact have now added keratin fusion extensions to my services menu. But I also love working with sharp, precise bobs and edgy pixie cuts. I crave variety in my work because I see hair as a fluid, ever-changing art medium. 


I'm a big fan of continuing education, and I believe it's never too late to learn something new. After 23 years of working as a graphic designer, illustrator, and commercial artist, I decided I'd had enough of life in front of a computer screen and decided to turn a passion into a career. In 2018, I enrolled in the cosmetology program at Paul Mitchell the School here in Reno. Since I've been doing hair for friends and family since I was about 14, it seemed a very logical career move for me. I came to work at TresImage in 2019, and couldn't be happier. I love my salon family! 


When I'm not at the salon, I'm enjoying the outdoors with my family, practicing yoga, or in my home studio creating art. I'm inspired by the natural world all around us and am energized by spending time in nature - a good hike really gets the creativity flowing...


I can't wait to create beautiful hair for you!
