What would Kimmy do?

This week we’re catching up with jovial, fun loving, mother and entrepreneur – Kimmy – CEO of Style Nation, who is a keen advocate for Avlon products with a goal to build an empire that epitomizes the fortitude and tenacity of a strong black woman.

Back in 2015 in the midst of finishing her final coursework to be certified as a beautician, redundancy came knocking.  Some may say the timing was very unfortunate; but being the optimist that she is, Kimmy searched for the positives. Having established a small clientele, Kimmy decided that it was time to launch out into the deep – you either sink or swim (so they say).

Kimmy has been swimming ever since.  Her passion for hair and beauty is natural and since then Kimmy has become a multi-award winning hair stylist – holding four Black Hair Beauty Sensational Awards under her belt.  “The success I now enjoy could not have been attained without my loyal clients’ aka ‘Stunnas,” says Kimmy.

Why do you choose to use Avlon products?

Being in a business where time management is paramount, finding a one stop shop with quality products can be difficult. I found that in Avlon, they cover a way array of products without compromising on quality. This is a brand that has stood the test of time, the testimonial and reviews are excellent. Recognizing the vision of Style Nation, it was a no brainer that Avlon products were ideal for me. They are also diverse in their product line which is in keeping with the mandate of Style Nation to cater to all ethnicity.

What are your top three Avlon products?

  1. Avlon Affirm Style Right Light Hairdress Cream – it give my hair a smooth silky feeling
  2. Avlon Keracare Butter cream – leaves my hair smooth and gives my hair a soft buttery feeling
  3. Avlon Affirm Foam Wrap Lotion – never disappoint in giving me that shine which bring whatever style together.

What Avlon product can you not live without?

It has to be the Affirm MoisturRight Hair Repair Masque. It never disappoints in giving me that healthy glow and brings a style together.
