Beauty Mark Hair Studio
Being a cosmetologist and makeup artist is something that I have always wanted to do, ever since I was a little girl. Growing up in a salon taught me that this industry wasn't just about "doing hair", but more about how you make your client feel. It's true when they say, "if your hair looks good, you can accomplish anything." Giving my clients confidence in their appearance is such a reward for me! I'm not here to make you look better, but rather to enhance your beauty. When a client comes in to my salon, I always strive to make it the best experience for her and to make sure she leaves KNOWING and FEELING that she is beautiful. I always make it an important goal to continue my education on color, haircutting, and makeup techniques. Styles and trends are constantly changing, staying up to date is so very important to me. I am a color specialist and also specialize in airbrush makeup. I have worked with two local magazines doing hair and makeup for photoshoots in the past that were located in Florida. That is when my love of doing hair and makeup for big events really came in to play. I have continued that passion at my salon doing hair and makeup for weddings, proms, pageants, and more. Being a cosmetologist is not just a job for me, it truly is a passion.
My goal has always been to one day have my own salon, after eight years in this industry I'm so proud to say that I have finally accomplished that goal! Beauty Mark Hair Studio is a full service hair and makeup salon. Beauty Mark Hair Studio is located inside Elite Suites in Knoxville, it is a private studio, giving clients a chance to really have one on one attention with me.

Owner of Elite Suites Salon Studios
Kimberly Hennessy has worked extensively in the beauty industry since 2007 and in the corporate arena since 2001. She began her journey as a graduate from the University of North Carolina where she received a Bachelor of Science in Business Management with minors in Marketing and Psychology.
Upon graduation, Kimberly relocated to the Knoxville area to launch her career initially in the real estate and mortgage brokerage industry. After a few years, she utilized her combined knowledge of the mortgage industry and the real estate market to secure a position as the Director of Operations for Investment Developers International, Inc. During her time there, she oversaw property acquisitions, refurbishments and resales.
Although Kimberly continued to enjoy the real estate market, she also discovered an untapped growth potential in the beauty industry. In 2007, she had the opportunity to purchase a traditional full service hair salon. Upon acquisition, she restructured the company’s business model, expanded the clientele, fully automated booking and POS processes, and generated a full marketing and web campaign. She increased staffing and managed all aspects of accounting, advertising, inventory and guest relations. After several years of success, Kimberly had the opportunity to sell her business to an investor that continues to operate the business today.
Soon, Kimberly was approached by The Paul Mitchell School to join their team at the local Knoxville campus as the Admissions Leader. Within a few months, she transitioned into the role of School Director. As School Director, Kimberly oversaw all departments including admissions, financial aid, operations, sales and education. She was responsible for maintaining the highest level of educational excellence representing the Paul Mitchell name and a network of 116 schools nationwide. She ensured compliance with a variety of industry regulatory agencies, the TN State Board of Cosmetology, and the Department of Education.
Although this position had given her an incredible knowledge and skill base and a rewarding career in the cosmetology industry, Kimberly still had a strong desire to own her own business once again and give back to the community of beauty professionals. With her extensive knowledge of the beauty industry and her vast network of salon professionals, this business model became the ideal venture for her.
“As a traditional salon owner and a cosmetology school director, I realized how incredibly hard beauty professionals work for the small percentage of their revenue that they ultimately keep. It simply seemed unfair that they provide the service and skill that generates the majority of salon income, but are unable to reap the benefits of their hard work. I also discovered that many hair stylists have always wanted to own their own business, but don’t have the initial capital or business experience needed to launch a successful salon. Elite Suites Salon Studios has given me the opportunity to provide hard working beauty professionals a platform to own their own business and be their own boss, while still having the security and business guidance that I can provide to ensure that their dreams become a success. I am very passionate about our business model because I can be an integral part in helping small business owners maximize their talents and live the life that they have always imagined. Taking the first step towards business ownership can be scary and overwhelming. My mission is to be the coach on the sidelines encouraging and supporting salon owners every step of the way as they fulfill their lifelong passion.”
