Born and raised in Binghamton, NY and (without a doubt) 100% Italian, Kim’s vivacious personality undoubtedly confirms it. Just like the city that never sleeps, Kim not only holds a degree in business administration, but has been performing high-quality nail services for the last 32 years and specializes in Acrylic nails. After owning Good Looks for the last 22 years, it’s become universally known you can find Kim servicing one long-standing customer after another: grinning from cheek to cheek with her team by her side.
As Kim said herself, “I love my store, but most of all ‘our team’, because they're not just employees.” Her motto? “All for one, one for all. You’re only as great as the people you surround yourself by.” She finds that true in every aspect of life because time is so precious and fleeting. When she’s away from Good Looks, she cherishes spending time with her supportive husband of 24 years, incredible family, and her 3 cats that mean the world to her!

Cady’s interest in the beauty industry began at a young age after entering the world of modeling and television. In 2011 during a volunteer fashion show, she discovered a local spa in Roanoke and soon after accepted her first job as the receptionist. What began as a part-time job, grew into a love for customer service and helping women feel and look their absolute best. After years of working in the spa industry, performing bridal and event makeup services, Cady was introduced to lash extensions in 2012. Following the natural order of things… she fell in love with them and began to study the process while pursuing her esthetics license. Now she specializes primarily in eyelash extensions, with certifications in both classic and volume lash extensions, and continuously works to improve her knowledge and skill. She also provides a plethora of other esthetic services including waxing, tinting, and lash perming services.
Aside from her love for esthetics, Cady has a deep passion for helping small businesses thrive with years of photography, graphic design, and marketing experience. She loves spending time with her family, friends, boyfriend, and vivacious rescue pup, Layla. Fun Fact: Cady’s favorite “hobby” is attending concerts - thanks to the amazing concerts she was able to attend with her mom as a child. From The Rolling Stones and B.B.
