Kimberly Ruel       

owner/color specialist/stylist

I've always been obsessed with all things beauty, so it was no surprise my first job was assisting at a salon in my hometown of Chicago. That's where the thrill of seeing these beautiful transformations sparked my interest in being the artist myself! I graduated with honors from Pivot Point Academy and went on to assist influential stylists before receiving my own chair. 

Color is my pride and passion, and I crave constantly learning and perfecting all the latest color trends and techniques to bring back to my clients. I love nothing more than seeing my clients happy and our vision beautifully translated onto their hair.

Cutting techniques are constantly evolving and I value constant, continuing education to always keep up. Whether you desire a long, layered cut, intricate bob/pixie, or a clean, fade, I can customize the perfect cut for you.

I created Live Free Hair Studio as a space for flourishing creativity, limitless inspiration, and a trendy, fun atmosphere to tie it all together!
