Hello, My name is Kuki Acevedo and welcome to Le Kuki Lounge! 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.


At Le Kuki Lounge you’ll enjoy luxurious, environmentally conscious products by Davines, a certified B Corporation based out of Italy. The line features sustainably 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. Now, let’s get you FIERCE, Honey!




  1. Consultations required  for all new chemical service guests
  2. As a result of a "no-call/no-show", guests will be required to place a credit card on file to book any subsequent appointments, any additional missed appointments will incur a fee equal to 50% of the service price


My mission is to be a fierce beauty ambassador who creates customized looks for beautiful and amazing people wrapped in an energetic and exciting experience.
