Kim Creekmore / Owner + Stylist

I dedicate my life to creating beautifully dynamic hair for each of my clients. Although I did not formally attend school until 2005, my love affair with styling hair began much earlier. Before attending Je Boutique in El Cajon, I was practicing my art on my family, my friends and myself. They were wonderful models and a great support in my early career. I have been cultivating my craft for over 10 years, creating clean and contemporary cuts for my clientele. Before beginning my solo career, I left San Diego’s premiere salon, Gila Rut as a master stylist, where I had been honing my skill since 2007. My pursuit of a challenging creative outlet landed me a spot on Gila Rut’s world renowned Creative Team. In 2012, I was invited to cut and style the short haircut for their Unison Collection. My cut and style garnered, not only Gila Rut’s, but also my own name in Hot Hair magazine and California Stylist. These publications are widely distributed throughout California. In 2010 and 2011, I participated styling for the Day Time Emmy’s in Las Vegas, Nevada. I have produced two photo shoots for entry into the prestigious North American Hair Dresser Awards and will continue to pursue a nomination in the future. My passion, desire and dedication have made it possible for me to open Cultivate, A HairLoveDesign Salon in January 2016. We are dedicated to the art of active listening. I know that through this practice we are more able to help you achieve the kind of hair you have always wanted. I am dedicated to creating as many opportunities to receive advanced eduction to better my skills as a hairdresser and business woman. When you leave my chair, my promise is that you will leave it refreshed and glowing. Thank you for the opportunity to help cultivate the most beautiful you. Live, love and let your life be balanced.

Megan Lewis /  Assistant + CULTIVATE Stylist

Prior to completing my training through San Diego City College’s cosmetology program in 2018, I spent 10 years working in the finance industry, where I learned the importance of viewing the full picture of a client’s concerns and desires. Soon after receiving my cosmetology license, I began working at Cultivate, assisting Kim. The day-to-day experience, along with Kim’s mentoring and advanced teaching, have been invaluable as I continue to learn and grow.

My goal is to build strong relationships with each of my clients, helping them to achieve their best look. I am dedicated to constantly improving my skills as a hairdresser, taking on new challenges, and learning new things. I am grateful for the opportunity to express my creativity while focusing on meeting your needs and providing a comfortable guest experience.
