For all of Elizabeth’s life, she has had a passion for art, fashion, and beauty, which directed her dreams in the beauty industry. In 2010, she decided to turn her passion into a reality, by attending the Aveda Institute in New York City. Shortly before graduation, Liz began her training at Prive hair salon in SoHo, NYC. As an apprentice, she began to love the art and creativity of a hair stylist. There was no better feeling than to see the smile on her client’s faces once they left the chair. After 2 ½ years at Prive and under her mentor, Aaron Grenia, Liz then became head assistant, trained several assistants and became a coordinator for over five seasons during NYFW (New York Fashion Week). Liz also helped with events sponsored by Prive Academy in NY and LA. She left Prive after much training and experience and was actively freelancing for photo and video shoots. During this time, she also worked as an educator for Peter Coppola brand hair products.
Liz Rim joined IGK when her mentor Aaron asked her to be a stylist at their new salon at the Dream hotel in the Meatpacking section of NYC. IGK salons in NYC, Miami and LA were created in 2014 and their 21 item branded product line launched in 2016 at Sephora and at Salon Centric.
Living out her passion gives Liz a profound sense of accomplishment as well as pride in her work. Throughout Liz’s career, she has been able to connect with many great people, clients and now friends. She now knows that when her clients step out of her chair, they look great on the outside and feel amazing on the inside as well. Elizabeth Rim loves what she does because she can experience the special magic of art, passion and work coming together not only for her self but also for others.
