If you're lucky enough to meet Kimberly Caldwell in person … get ready to feel good. Really good. She's quick-witted, her charisma is contagious…and she's an exuberant professional (wise beyond her years — she started performing on stage at age 6).
You may recognize Kimberly (or her amazing singing voice) from season 2 of American Idol where she won the hearts of many as a finalist. In addition to being a consummate performer, Kimberly is a self-proclaimed beauty addict AND a die-hard DIYer. During her years on stage, she learned from the best makeup artists and hair stylists in Hollywood. She's been doing her own hair and makeup for years for red carpet events and hosted shows on MTV, Oxygen, VH1, CBS and more. Her love for hair and makeup launched her business, Stage Presents Makeover Studio, where women book appointments with Kimberly for a head-to-toe “beauty boost.” In addition, she also creates content for the number-one-selling hair and beauty magazine in the world, Sophisticates Hairstyle Guide.
With credentials like this, you can see why we are thrilled to have Kimberly as our Chief Brand Ambassador, contributing amazing tips, tricks & tutorials as a Celebrity Columnist and Beauty Blogger for our blog and emails.

What You Probably Don't Know About Kimberly
She loves Mexican food. She's a mommy on the go-go-go (and even teared up when asked about leaving her 20 month old baby girl with the nanny so she could go back to work). She shops at thrift stores and loves a good bargain (don't we all!). She even designs and constructs leather handbags. Did we mention…she'll eat tacos for breakfast lunch and dinner? Get with the program: Kimberly washes her hair every 3 days—day 1 she wears it straight, day 2 she curls it, day 3 she puts it in a dutch braid (she clearly has this down to a science). Her favorite movie is Dirty Dancing, and she had the most number of wins for a junior vocalist on Ed McMahon's Star Search.
Call it MOXIE. Call it CHARM. Trust us, you'll want what she's having … MADISON REED COLOR.
Madison Reed + Kimberly Caldwell – it's a match made in beauty heaven.
