Kimberly Long (Goshen, IN), Fringe Salon
Kimberly was studying art when a woman handed her a card and said she’d be really good at hairstyling. She loves how art aligns with the “touch” element of hairstyling. “I can give a client a hug and help them feel better and a haircut that helps them look better,” she said. Kimberly is especially honored to receive a Vidal Sassoon award. Not only has she long admired his contributions to the industry, but she had the privilege of seeing Sassoon shortly before his passing in 2012.
