Meet Baldwin Hills Hairstylist: Kim Berry

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kim Berry.

Kim, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
After graduating high school I decided to take a break to get my head together for one year my mother decided after two months that I need to get up and get myself together or get out of her house so I walk down the street walk into Pacific beauty college before I knew it at the end of the conversation I had signed on the dotted line but the paperwork back to her and said I hope you’re happy now I go to cosmetology school she said now I hope you’re happy and close your bedroom door after 9 months of schooling I won my first competition head to toe hair styling won first place and figured I really could do this graduated Before Time in my class and two years later I was hired to work for prints and traveled all over the world with him for 28 years up until the time of his death.

Has it been a smooth road?
Some of the struggles along the way were simply learning that everyone can not go with you want to take everybody with you and include them in on your blessings but that’s not what God designed what God has for you is for you.

What would you say has been the biggest challenge for you over the course of your career?
My biggest challenge is even once I have let the world know look for some of the biggest entertainers in the world namely “Prince ” that I still find myself having to prove myself when he’s worn every hairstyle that any woman has ever dreamed of , but yet getting into the next phase of the industry ie: Union/agencies has been a serious challenge.

There are so many ideas that are dead and in the grave because people don’t want to share on how to get to the next level and I never understood that being in this industry I’ve always tried to help someone that was behind me my Bishop used to always say you know you are a success when you create a successor but everyone doesn’t think that way it’s dog-eat-dog there’s enough hair projects movies videos to go around for all of us…. Trying to stay loyal to your celebrity clientele and maintain a sense of confidentiality cripples you in a way because when it’s time for you to Branch out and go to the next phase of your career no one really believes it’s you…. so that’s a fine line you have to walk
