Who We Are


Karla Kuhlmann

Salon Owner & Stylist

Karla is the owner of KM Salon and holds 39 years of behind the chair and education experience. She began her education career as a Goldwell Educator in Wisconsin and then moved to North Carolina in 1990 to be a full time Director of Education of the Goldwell Southeast Branch. 

After 11 years, Karla left the education world and went back to her first love of hair dressing. In 2000, she ventured out and opened a small salon space on her own, and by 2003, she opened KM Salon in Southend, Charlotte. Karla is extremely passionate about learning and brings that passion to every guest in her chair. She enjoys all aspects of her career and will make you feel right at home during every appointment. 

When not behind the chair, you may find Karla relaxing with her two cats: Lewis and Kevin with a good book in hand.

Karla is currently accepting new guests.
