Meet the #SunkissedGals

Kacie Nguyen

Founder, Salon Director

Hi there! My name is Kacie and I am the proud owner of Sunkissed Salon in the Bay Area. Since I pursued being a hairstylist at the age of 19, it was definitely not easy for me. There were times where I wanted to give up or quit, but I am glad I didn’t because 10 years later, I love my job and everyone I met along the way.

The experience and the relationships that are built in this industry are unbelievable. I am very thankful for my clients and our hair dates because without their trust and time spent during our sessions, I would not be where I am today. Lastly, I have had the pleasure to work and teach hard working and dream driven ladies who I call my family, the #SunkissedGals.

 

 

 

Kimberly Ha

Stylist

Hey! Nice to meet you! I have always loved doing hair but realized I could make it a career when I noticed how much it affected others. Hair could leave women feeling more confident despite how subtle or dramatic change. From then on, I was hooked!

I love a good hair color but haircuts are my JAM! In my spare time, I love reading and laying in the sun. (Really anything relaxing!)

Cooki Tran

Stylist

Hello world! I started to really love the industry when I was introduced to the Paul Mitchell Culture. Their style and attention to detail made me feel warm and welcomed. I felt like I was in a comfortable home. Soon, a childhood love for smiles and colors turned into a lifelong passion of mine.

In my spare time, I am an easy going girl, loving the moment and help people laugh and smile along the way.

Heather Nguyen

Stylist

Hi there! Ever since I was young I’ve always had a passion to be creative. I just never knew what I wanted to do with that creativity. Then I went back to school to try and become a hairstylist. Best decision of my life!

My goals for our hair dates is to keep the integrity of your hair while making your color dreams come true! When I’ve empowered a person to feel beautiful! Can’t wait to meet you!

Phuong Bui

Assistant Stylist

Hi! I am Phuong! At a young age, I developed a passion for hair and beauty. I started Cosmetology school eager to learn the art of coloring, styling, and cutting.

Knowing that I wanted to train from the best, I immediately applied for a job as a stylist assistant at Sunkissed Salon. I love what I do because everyday, I get to tap into my creativity. I always strive to leave a positive impact on my clients, making them feel renewed and confident.

I love meeting people who inspire me to be creative!

My Huynh

Hi, I’m My! It’s my pleasure to meet you! I’m a Hair Stylist Assistant for Sunkissed Salon. However, I’m currently in training to become apart of the Hairstylist forum for this wonderful team.

I love what I do and I’m thrilled to be able to learn and grow from my amazing peers, while progressing greatly throughout my experience. I look forward to meeting you!

Valerie Dinh

Assistant Stylist

I’m currently a student at Paul Mitchell the school, set to graduate October 2019. My mother has been in the hair industry for over 20 years and as a young girl I would be at her salon every day helping her. I spent every Saturday and every summer sweeping hair, folding towels, being a receptionist, to working my way up to a shampoo girl. Working with my mother made me realize my true passion in life is to change lives. My #1 goal is to help women build self confidence through hair, one foil at a time.

My Phan

Permanent Makeup Artist and Trainer

Hi there! I’m My and I specialize in all permanent makeup procedures (microblading, microshading, ombré, lips blush, and lash enhancement liner).

Being able to make a difference in peoples’ lives makes my job so rewarding. My mission with every client is to focus on patterns and colors that are simple, soft, natural and at the same time frame the face and improve the client’s overall look.

My goal is to enhance and create the most natural semi-permanent makeup procedures while delivering my service with comfort, care, and safety.

Han Nguyen

Permanent Makeup Artist

Hi, my name is Han! Growing up, I’ve always loved transforming my family and friends’ looks with different hair styles and make up.

I started my career with doing hair, nails, and waxing. I was then introduced to microblading and became obsessed! I instantly knew this was what I wanted to do. Now, not only do I get to transform my client’s eyebrows, I get to do it semipermanently.
