Kim’s love of makeup came early in life.  As a little girl, she would sit and watch her mother apply makeup in the bathroom mirror.  Kim started doing makeup for fun on the girls in her dorm at Spelman College.   After graduation, much to the chagrin of her parents, Kim enrolled in Wilfred Beauty Academy and received her cosmetology license so she could live out her dream as a makeup artist and hair stylist.  However, as fate would have it, Kim ended up earning an MBA and having a successful professional career before embarking on makeup and hair full time.  Then, in 2004, while in grad school (again), a friend said, “Kim, will you do the makeup for my wedding?”  It was at that moment, Kim realized a dream deferred.



Kim Gray has had an amazing career as a working makeup artist and hair stylist.  As a freelance artist and an agency represented artist, Kim’s clients include CNN, Bloomberg, Fox, PBS, ABC, Good Morning America, People Magazine, TV Guide, HBO, Nascar, Mariah Carey, Kelly Ripa, Solange, and Carole King…just to name a few.


As Kim’s career continues to grow, her focus is on education and training a new generation of professional artists.  Today’s artist needs a defined skill set based on fundamental techniques, an understanding of technology and superior customer service.
