About Younghee

“I like to design individual looks, and hair should fit and move like a perfect outfit.”

Younghee Salon founder Younghee Kim began her illustrious haircutting and hair styling career over thirty years ago under the tutelage of Vidal Sassoon, spending twelve years directing the VS vision as their New York City creative director.

Younghee has also styled hair for a multitude of international television commercials, editorial shoots, and fashion shows over the last two decades, before opening her headquarters at the namesake Younghee Salon in Manhattan in the year 2000. Named Best Salon for a Women’s Cut by New York Magazine, the salon now resides at 64 North Moore, in the historic downtown district of Tribeca. Younghee also works with an exclusive group of international clients in Europe and Asia.

In 2016 Younghee launched her first haircare product line, Essential Rinse®, a unique and natural purifying hair and scalp toner that has become an instant hit with editors and beauty bloggers alike.
