Kim is a life saver!!! I came to Kim after having my eyes done by someone else and was incredibly dissatisfied with my original work. I was tired of being jealous of my friend and her perfect permanent eyeliner that was done by Kim. Her price was less than half of what I had originally paid, her work is far superior, and her beside manner is impeccable. I work in the beauty industry, because of this I am incredibly picky and hard to please. Kim’s work went far beyond what I expected, she was even able to fix the mistakes the first girl made. I am sad I cannot give her more than 5 stars. Becky S.

First to Review

I needed to get my eyeliner tatoo touched up. Kimberly explained that I would be better off getting the entire eyeliner redone. So I had her redo it. She applied topical anesthetic and I didn’t feel anything. She also gave me specific instructions on how to care for the eyeliner when I got home. I have to say that it looks REALLY good. Kimberly Hester did a fabulous job.

If you want to get permanent makeup done then Permanently Pretty is the place to go!

I have to give Kimberly 5 stars, there’s nothing to complain about!!! She’s a life saver!!! I went to her after contacting 5 other places which were too expensive or didn’t know what they were talking about. I had my eyebrows and lip liner done by someone else and they messed it up big time so I needed to find someone I could trust!!! After my FREE consultation with Kimberly I knew she was the one. She has a great eye and noticed right away everything that I seen. So I let her do her work. She is still correcting my lips and eyebrows and so far I couldn’t be happier. I was so happy I let her do the upper and lower eye liner and I love it. She made no mistakes and I felt no pain!!! Most important she has a steady hand!!!! I recommend her to anyone and trust me after having someone do a terrible job I know what I’m talking about!!! Go see her she’s great and cheap!!!!!

Kimberly does an AWESOME job when it comes to permanent make-up. She did my eyeliner. I had it done 5 yrs ago from a different lady who did permanent make-up but I decided to try someone new. And I’m glad that I did. Otherwise, I would have never known of Kimberly’s EXCEPTIONAL work.

It took about 2 hrs to do my eyeliner. For the most part, it felt like a ticklish feeling. It felt like your eyelids were getting massaged, which was a good feeling. There were some areas that were more sensitive in which she numbs you real well before and during the procedure so it is tolerable. And I was able to drive home with no problems.

I had done a consultation with her the week before. She was very thorough in explaining the procedure itself and what she thought would look good and she does listen to what your preferences are as well. She also provides thorough post-procedure instructions to follow and an ointment to help with the healing process.

She has a cute office where she does her work in her house. It has a very relaxing atmosphere, cute decor, and a comfy chair to lie on. She plays wonderful music in the background (Norah Jones) and she makes you feel at ease.

Her prices are affordable and she does GREAT work. You definitely receive a job WELL-DONE. And the touch-up price is just as affordable in which she recommends coming back within 8 weeks. I already made my appt. with her to come back.

Kimberly is very friendly, outgoing, and professional. She is someone you can trust when it comes to permanent make-up. I recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone to do their permanent make-up. I know having something like this done is pretty scary, but Kimberly puts all those feelings of anxiety at ease.

The healing time was pretty fast. I thought the next day my eyes would be puffy and hard to open. That was how it was when I did my eyeliner with the other lady 5 years ago. However, the next day, my eyes were just a little swollen. It had looked like the look when you have had a good cry. I did have a little bruising but that was expected. I did have a little discomfort when I would blink but it was not bad at all. She uses this gel that has some Aloe Vera and boy does it speed up with the healing process. That thing made me say, “Wow!” every time I looked in the mirror. It was magical. Overall, the recovery takes about 3-4 days.

So if you’re looking for someone to do your permanent make-up, definitely choose Kimberly. You’ll be glad you did! 5 stars for sure!!!!

Kimberly is so kind, patient, and honest. She really does care about her clients instead of seeing them as dollar signs like some other do. I called her if she could do a correction and a redo, and we talked on the phone for half an hour as she explained to me the procedure and the complications that could possibly arise. She talked about how the treatments might need to be spaced out because she didn’t want to damage my skin or do something that I will regret later because I am so young. I appreciate that she did not sugar coat it to get me to pay for the services. She was upfront about the costs, which are, in fact, very reasonable. After, she set up an appointment to look at me, no cost. I really appreciate it when an artist cares more about delivering a good end result than about getting the client’s money, and also when the artist is so preoccupied oh about her client’s health, long term. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it to our appointment today because I wasn’t feeling we’ll. Instead of becoming angry and charging a fee like most artists would on such a short notice, she was kind and sympathetic, even telling me that all was okay. She even wished for me to get better. I’m not even her client yet and she is treating me so kindly. In addition, she rescheduled the appointment for a time that was convenient for me. I will update my review later after she does work on me. Go to Kimberly Hester. She truly does put her clients first. Chloe F.

Kimberley did my eyebrows. She took her time through-out the entire process getting my approval and making sure I was OK. We’d stop and she’d show me her progress and not continue until I was satisfied. When the needle started hurting, she’d stop and numb me right away. I LOVE my eyebrows! But even more, I love how much Kimberley cared about me and perfected her work. She is a true artist. I got exactly what I wanted and it didn’t hurt at all! Now I’m thinking about getting my eyes done…
