Hello, My name is Kuki Acevedo and welcome! I pride myself on making everyone who sits in my chair look and feel fierce and fabulous and I look forward to doing the same for you.


Since receiving my education at Leon’s Beauty School in Greensboro, NC in 2005, I developed my signature style and love for sustainable beauty at a small Aveda salon in Winston-Salem. I then moved to Charlotte and have had the opportunity to work alongside and study under some of the best in the industry: David Adams (Red Chocolate), Lupe Voss (Hair Color Magic), Alan Ruiz, Ian Mitchell Black, celebrity artist Tippy Shorter and DJ Muldoon (Hair Factory, Vidal Sassoon and Paul Mitchell) to name a few. 


I spent many years honing my craft working for one of Charlotte’s most prestigious salons, rated among the Top 200 Salons by Salon Today, many times over. I enjoyed mentoring and educating some of Charlotte’s top talent in the art and science of hair color as a Certified Aveda Hair Color Educator, Senior Director and Stylist manager. My talents, experiences, and passion for creating a truly unique guest experience led me to curate and present a hair color education curriculum for the salon, still in use today.


You will feel right at home and enjoy luxurious, environmentally conscious products by Davines, a certified B Corporation based out of Italy. The line features sustainable sourced, natural products and color that, together, we can customize to meet your needs.


I like to think that my clients know that when they sit down in my chair, they will get an honest, thoughtful, and deliberate consultation. Followed by a consistent, luxurious and comfortable service. Join me as I strive to bring Beauty, Science and Sustainability back into the salon in a fun and energetic environment with a chill vibe. I look can't wait for your visit!

I have been seeing Kuki now for over 2 years and am a loyal fan forever. She got me to cut my long hair, and I’ll never go back! She gives great feedback, and I trust her to work her magic without having to really give her much insight on what I’m wanting. She just knows, which is so refreshing to have found in CLT. She also is a fabulous person, and I always have a great time while there chatting :) I recommend her hands down!!

Kuki is an amazing artist! She has mastered color and shaping. My natural curls have never looked so good! And I love going to my appointments. With fun conversation, cool surroundings, and great music, each visit is a self-indulging treat!

Kuki has the magic touch with curls. I’ve tried countless stylists to help control my curl and finally found this talented lady. I can’t recommend Kuki enough for any and all kinds of curls and color. She takes time to understans your needs and more than delivers!!
