Kim Berry is an elite hair stylist based in Los Angeles. After her formal education at Pacific Beauty College, the universe aligned her life to cross paths with Prince, starting a whirlwind education of over 28 years at the “University of Prince Rogers Nelson”. For nearly three decades Kim has been with Prince through almost every one of his ups and downs, good and bad times of his career and life. Kim has seen Prince at his most vulnerable times that very few have ever witnessed.
She has shared rare memorable moments with him as a husband, father, artist and fellow human being. Prince trusted her enough to confide in her over the years. They laughed, cried and even argued together. Over his career many have come and gone but Kim was able to roll with rock royalty Prince longer than mostly everyone. Kim started out as Prince’s hairstylist but end up as one of his few closest friends.
Not afraid to try styles any woman could imagine, Prince braved every look with such tenacity and confidence you dare not question it. Some of the most iconic looks of “The Artist’s” career Kim is responsible for. You name it; photos, music videos, and international concert tours. Two of his most famous live performances includes his 1999 world tour, the concert before his induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in 2004 and the rainy Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2007 that we all remember.
Kim’s work with Prince has been featured on the pages of Vogue, Allure, W and Rolling Stone magazine just to name a few. She has worked with fashion photographer Patrick Demarchellier , David LaChapelle and Randy St Nicholas.
Under the watchful eye of Prince, Kim opened her First Lady Elite Salon and Spa in L.A. in 2001. After countless videos and world tours the second salon was birthed in 2011. Indulgent Concept Salon was located on well-known Wilshire Blvd adjacent facility that serviced not only Prince, but also some of Hollywood’s finest the likes of Nicole Ari Parker, Yolanda Whitaker “YoYo”, Vanessa and Angela Simmons, Wendy Raquel Robinson and so many more.
Kim’s facilities served many women of Hollywood. She is also known for organizing community awareness events around HIV and mammogram testing, to feeding and clothing the homeless, as well as fabulous welfare-to-work makeovers aiming to motivate young women.
