Kimberly Setzer has been active in numerous areas of cosmetology for over 26 years.  Her experiences range from freelance makeup artistry to salon ownership to residing on the Iowa Board of Cosmetology.  In addition to her creative work in cosmetology, Kimberly has also made an impact on her community by contributing her time as the President of the Algona Area Chamber of Commerce’s Ambassador organization and held a position with Kossuth County Economic Development as a Communications Board Member.

Her passion for creative cosmetology came to her early on.  She earned her cosmetology degree in 1986 from IBA City College of Cosmetology and earned first place in the Kurl Kraze competition within her school’s competition in the Nails/Makeup Category.  Kimberly’s professional career in makeup artistry began in 1998 when she joined the Technical Artist Group at Sebastian International in California. Kimberly also was an educator for Mirabella Cosmetics for several years.  Kimberly found her talent in makeup artistry lent well into becoming an exceptional stylist of both hair and nails.  She founded her first business, Nails by Kim, while simultaneously renting booth space at Styles Salon.  Here she would build a substantial clientele while learning more about business operations of a salon.

Allure Salon opened for business in 2004, with Kimberly’s array of talents now including hair styling and coloring alongside nails and makeup artistry.  Her devotion to education and training led her to become appointed to the Iowa Board of Cosmetology Arts & Sciences in 2006 where she is currently Chairman of the Board .  Kimberly also has been an active part of Cosmetolotist and Barbers of Iowa and holds a Director postion on the board. This commitment to education did not deter her business or drive to excel, as Allure Salon was 1st runner up in Nail Magazine’s “Salon of the Year” in 2006.

Kimberly continues to exceed her client’s expectations by continuously learning new techniques in both hair and makeup artistry.  As a member of the Iowa Cosmetologists Educators organization, Kimberly also provides educational opportunities to other makeup artists through educational events, thru private or group instruction.

In Kimberly's free time she likes to decorate, landscape and flower gardens.  Kimberly resides in Algona Iowa.
