I'm a master stylist. I've been doing hair for 15 years now. Runway, models, TV, Celebrities and more...
I specialize in complicated color and cuts, as well as hair, Lash extensions, and thermal hair straightening. (working with Lines like Redkin, Iso, Pravana, goldwell and others) . I feel this has giving me a huge advantage as far as color is concerned. I can factor in other color lines and know what and how they will react with other color lines such as mine. I have spent many years teaching woman advanced education for color and cuts.
Now I am teaching private courses. As well as doing alot of charity work. Makeovers on woman trying to find jobs, or just can't afford to do their hair. I have a contest every month for one woman to get a makeover.
I also donate 10 gift certificates to CSD for children to get their hair cut monthly.

So happy with my extensions Kymi did, they changed my life! I will follow her to any salon! Just don't leave :) She is a miracle worker and is amazingly talented! I didn't think I would ever have long or thick hair again, I didn't think It would be this great! Thank you!!!!
I have been going to salons all my life. It's my only way to get away from the stress of my life, I have been searching for that perfect place to go and Portland really doesn't have that fabulous place to brag about, TILL I came to Hey beautiful. This place is AMAZING I was almost in a bad mood to leave. The staff is so friendly and the space is just unbelievable. I scheduled only a facial but I am sad I didn't get more. They couldn't ad any more services due to being too busy. I will be coming here for a long time and spend a longer time visiting and getting services done! This place is great and worth checking out!!
NO salon should have more than a handful of bad reviews, if any. If the consensus is that this place has so many negatives about it, I would tend to beleive it. I have been a hairdresser for 18 years with not one poor review. I'm sure in that time I have had an unhappy client (realistically) but apparently never bad enough to write a review about it. These reviews are deeply concerning and I agree, almost unbelievable.
STAY AWAY!!! Be warned and read other complaints posted about this salon. Also google "Kalista Salon". There are reasons they've changed the salon name and can't keep employees longer than a few weeks. BAD! BAD! BAD! I've left more than 3 dozen messages after I had a horrible experience and lost hundreds of dollars. They did end up letting the employee go a week later because they found a lot of other issues after they started looking into my bad experience. They've gone through 2 or 3 salon managers since I've been calling and speaking to them about this. The salon was completely unresponsive and I wasn’t even asking for full reimbursement. They didn't want to talk me period.
If you ever have a problem there, and many have from reading the posts, they'll avoid you by having the receptionist bush you off with “no one’s here to take your call” or “she’s gone for a week”. After all of this, I happened to run into one of their ex-employee’s and the stories about this salon are even worse than I imagined. Hard to believe they're still in business and my guess is they won't be much longer. I should have checked the reviews before going, my mistake. Don’t let it be yours too.
6 year customer and I've moved to the Northeast. No one has been able to replicate the cut Kim gives my hair. Just visited family in Portland and of course got my hair cut. In a year and a half I haven't found anyone who understands my style and hair the way Kim does. When living in Portland people commented on how great my hair looked no less than 3 times a week. She created a style for me that is perfect.
Best Salon experience in Portland! – I have going to Kalista/now Hey Beautiful for the past 12 years and I have always had the BEST haircuts/color!!! My kids love going to get there hair done too, and nails...nice, comfortable atmosphere, good quality products available, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Always happy with results and will continue to recommend friends/family/strangers to go here because it's G R E A T !!!
Kim has been my hairdresser for 2 years now and she has always been very sweet to me and from what i see her staff respects her, I read these reviews on here and I am embarrassed for these people that could think to say things about anyone the way this salon seems to be attacked. I would just stay just as you are and keep your head up. Your a great and talented hairdresser and your staff seem to adore you. Cybor bulling is becoming more and more evident especially in your case. I would recommend your salon and spa to all my friends and anyone on this site that comes to visit. There is much talent here in this salon and I would not be writing this review if I wasn't touched by Kim personally and her overall energy.
I would give 0 stars if it were – Same owner, different name, same bad service
I have been to the salon when it was Kalista, and I just recently went into the salon now called Hey Beautiful. Both times I went in there the owner made my hair just as I wanted it, the difference I noticed was the rest of the staff. It was all new faces and everyone was happy and smiling. The front desk was very attentive to me and I really enjoyed my experience. Before, the staff was very stand offish and I actually heard two former employees in the bathroom talking crap about other employees and the owner. Clearly not professional! So I am guessing from everyone that has had negative experiences had to have dealt with the old catty staff, considering most of the negative reviews seem to be personal. I defiantly did not feel as welcome as I did with my last visit. I think Hey Beautiful salon is awesome and I would not let any of the previous comments change your mind about visiting.
