Loft 2


Hi there! My name is Kristin Timm. This is the part where I should be talking about how I grew up playing with my dolls hair and I knew from a very young age I wanted to be a Hairstylist but that is not my story. I have been in the industry for five years and being able to work in the fashion/hair industry is a dream to me. I grew up with my parents telling me to find something I love so much that it doesn't feel like I'm working a day in my life which I never believed existed until I found my passion for hair. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to transform someone's style and see their confidence shine through!

My passion is creating soft, lived-in hair whether that be through hair coloring, balayage, cutting or bringing your hair to life with dimension. I will always have a thorough consultation to discuss your hair goals and I will be honest if that is something we are able to achieve. If not, I will give options as to what is realistic and best suited for your hair type.

It is important to me to stay current with the trends and I am always furthering my education to do so. I have had the honor of doing education and training in New York City at Bumble and bumble with styling and razor cutting and taking master color classes at the Goldwell Academy.

Absolutely love my hair!! I loved everything about my appointment. I found her through Instagram and booked an appointment for highlights/toner and a haircut! I showed her pictures of what I wanted and she gave me suggestions and met my goal for what I wanted my hair to look like! She had top of the line products and tools and she was able to help me with product recommendations. She even helped me get those perfect waves for my short hair! She is so sweet and easy to open up to! We had so much to talk about. Absolutely recommend her for everything and anything!! She will make your hair into perfection!!

I’ve been using Kris for about 3 years now, and I can tell you we are just getting started! I have very thick hair that isn’t straight or curly, but she some how knows exactly what to do. Every time I leave the salon it is exactly what I want, and I assure you I give her minimal direction. It is usually, “what are the cool kids doing” and “not too short please”…and my hair is exactly what I didn’t know I wanted! She is a balayage QUEEN - whether I want to be lighter or darker she just knows what to do and keeps the price in mind every time. She is completely transparent about costs and there are no surprises at all. What’s more, she is truly someone I trust with my hair, but also more. From sharing my personal life, professional life, and mama life, Kris keeps it real 100%. When I wanted to get colorful, we put some purple in my hair. If I put it up, you couldn’t tell and if I wore it down, it was AMAZING. I wouldn’t have been able to do that without her support. As a new mom with a changing body and needs, I had to relearn myself. Kris guided my through it and truly gave me the confidence I needed to become a better and more secure version of myself. I will never use another hair stylist as long as she’ll have me!

I have moved around a lot and finding a new stylist is scary. After 1 appointment with Kris, Im so glad that search is over. Kris truly took the time to discuss my hair insecurities and hair health. I was enlightened by all the information Kris shared with me and I am so excited to pursue all of her recommendations for my fine hair. Kris truly shares in the joy of her clients, smiling throughout the transformation and sparks confidence by taking the before and after photos. If you haven’t had your hair done by Kris yet, you’re missing out. Book immediately, your hair will thank you!

I found Kristin through Instagram because her hair photos are so dang beautiful. I hadn’t had any fresh color done in several years and she did not disappoint! Clearly a color expert, she brought my hair back to life and in such a way that it will be low maintenance for me. She really knows what’s she’s doing! I left the salon feeling refreshed and beautiful and we enjoyed wonderful conversation as well. If you are looking for a new hair professional, Kristin is your woman. I’m telling you, book your appointment now. You will LOVE your hair.

I found Kristin through Instagram, her photos were right in line with what I was looking for. I have very dark brown hair, so I was a little nervous to go lighter with balayage but I trusted her because I saw her work and loved it. I’m SO glad I put my trust in her and let her do her work on me. I absolutely love my new look and couldn’t be happier with my hair. She’s the sweetest and most kind person. Would recommend anyone to her!! Thank you Kristin!!!!

Kristin is amazing!! Within minutes of meeting her, it was evident that she is very knowledgeable about hair. Kristin took her time explaining the coloring process and always asked if I was comfortable. She even took the time to explain to me dos and don'ts in regard to products. 10/10 would recommend seeing her! -Josie

I genuinely cannot stop smiling at how my hair turned out! I’m new to the area and it was terrifying at the thought of a new stylist. Kristin was recommended to me when I began my search of someone who specialized in blondes. I felt confident from the consultation alone, and even more so the day of. She asked all the right questions to make sure I got what I was looking for. Through the entire process I could see the magic happening. Her precision and care through every step was phenomenal. She took the time to teach me how to care for my hair which meant a great deal. I have found the one! I am so so so in love with my hair! Thank you Kristin!

I have been searching for a stylist for a while. It seemed as though none of them would really listen to what I desired. So glad I found Kristin, she was awesome! She was so professional and attentive and delivered exactly what I was looking for!! Color AND cut were perfect. I think I’ve found the perfect hairdresser!!

I recently moved to Sarasota and my boss has gone to Kristin since forever! I was looking to find someone who was both gentle and kind to work with my hair and that actually knows how to work with a hair that has never been dyed. She exceeded my expectations! I left her loft feeling so confident and my hair was brought back to life. I went in to just get a trim because I was nervous that I wouldn’t like it but I kept telling her to work her magic and continue cutting and framing my face! She is so so sweet and actually gave me the hair style that I wanted!!!! It was identical to the picture I showed her. I loved everything about my experience. Also, her loft is so cute and cozy and modern. I felt like a celebrity haha. She is amazing! To say that I even asked her to be my wedding hairdresser says a lot!!!!! LOVE HER! Even got my mom to schedule with her.

I recently moved to Florida for work a few months ago and I came across Kristin’s Instagram! I have always struggled with trusting others with my hair and I was in awe with the work she showcased on her page. I made the appointment and was greeted by a welcoming smile and comfortable atmosphere. I told her that I trusted her judgement as to what she felt would suit me, and boy did she impress! Not only did I leave the salon with a new do, but I left feeling more confident and sexy!! This is the best my hair has looked in a long time and I made sure to already schedule another appointment in September!☺️

I found Kristin through Instagram, I was so impressed with her hair photos. I hadn’t had anything done to my hair in a few months, and the blonde I had was very dried out looking. She brought my hair back to life and it looks amazing!! She really knows what’s she’s doing! I left the salon feeling refreshed, and beautiful, and wanted to buy all the wonderful stuff she just used on my hair. If you are looking for a new hair stylist, Kristin will NOT disappoint!! I will not be using anyone besides Kristin from here on out!

My college daughter could not seem to find the right hairdresser with the new techniques that she wanted. After finding Kris and her patience, skill and true talent with everything from color to cut to bayalge. I decided to make the change also!! I always wanted demension in my hair and now I have it. Make your appointment now, you won’t be disappointed. PS she’s the sweetest ever<3

The second you meet kris, you know you’ve just found your lifetime stylist. She has such a warm and calming personality and whenever you talk to her you can tell she’s genuinely listening. She will have a thorough consultation with you and let you know what is achievable for your hair while giving you her professional opinion. Every time I’m in kris’ chair I leave feeling more beautiful and confident than ever. Book now, she’s busy and worth the wait!!

Kris is everything you want in a hair stylist. She’s honest, educated, and above all, you can tell she absolutely loves what she does. Her passion for hair and for happy clients is visible in every visit with her. As a brunette who likes to go lighter, I have had many stylists mess up my hair and damage it. Since I have started with Kris not only is my hair lighter, but it’s never been healthier. I have the bayalage that I’ve always envisioned and she made it come true. Once you go to Kris you’ll never want to see anyone else, i fully trust her opinions and let her take over with my hair. She’s a great stylist, and has become an even better friend.

Finding the right hair stylist is like finding the right therapist; it can be very difficult, but once you find that person, you stick with them. Kris was that perfect fit right from the beginning (roughly 2 years ago now)! Not only is she great at listening to what you want, but she is a master at the execution. I used to dread going to the salon, but now it is something I look forward to because I know I am going to leave feeling and looking amazing, AND I get to spend a couple hours chatting and relaxing. She is truly amazing at what she does, and to top it off, she is one of the most kind and genuine souls you will ever meet. I can't recommend her enough, especially for color!
Renee S.
Kris’ passion and professionalism made for a wonderful experience! I came up with a couple ideas and inspiration photos, and she really brought the ideas to life giving me exactly what I wanted and more. She always ensured I was comfortable and relaxed which I really appreciate!

Finding the right hair stylist can be difficult, but the first time Kris cut and styled my hair I knew I had found my new salon! She is so good at what she does and is always friendly, honest, and enjoyable to be around. If you’re in the market for a new hair stylist, Kris is your girl!

I love that Kristen always takes the time to talk about your hair at every appointment to make sure your are loving it! She always makes you feel like you are her only client. Kristen is as kind as she is talented & I highly recommend her.
Karen D.
Kris has been my stylist for haircuts and highlights for the past 2 years and I couldn’t recommend her more! She always makes me feel welcome in her salon and provides me the best service possible. I’m not one for keeping the same hairstyle for long, so we always have a consultation before she starts and she truly listens - and executes - and I ALWAYS love the end result!! Kris’ personable, down-to-earth approach and the quality of her work have ensured I will never entrust my hair with anyone else. A million gold stars for you, Kris! Gail T.
