Cloud 9 Salon, Spa and Boutique has been a Denton County fixture since 1992 and a part of the Flower Mound community since 2004.

It is owned by Garland native Kim Cloud Skidmore, who gets help from her son, salon manager and stylist Nathan Dean.

“I’m still behind the chair,” Skidmore said. “My main part of my life is styling, cutting and coloring. Nathan is [the] operations guy—deals with the front desk, helps me with everything. We really enjoy working together. We work side-by-side.”

With a staff of more than 50, Cloud 9 satisfies all hair, nail and body care needs under one roof. Their massage therapists and eyelash and nail technicians stay extremely busy, Skidmore said.

Dean recently launched a line of Cloud 9-branded shampoos and conditioners. The salon also sells CBD and CBG products from Zilis.


Their current facility, which features a downstairs salon and an upstairs spa, is 8,300 square feet. Skidmore is planning to move Cloud 9 about six miles west to a 12,000-square-foot facility in Bartonville. No move date has been set, though.

“We weren’t looking for bigger,” Skidmore said. “In the beginning, we were actually looking for smaller. That didn’t happen. [With the new location,] we’re moving our office upstairs. We’re moving nails upstairs. The spa area will be bigger and hold more people and more services. Then, downstairs, we’ll have some private rooms for stylists.”

Skidmore said the salon’s goal is to provide impeccable service to its clients, who are treated like family.

Skidmore said her other passion is giving back through Cloud 9 Charities, which raises money to provide temporary shelter for Denton County homeless families.

“It’s super important to me. I feel like, as a business owner, if you are reaping the benefits of your community, you should be giving back to it as well,” Skidmore said. “We’ve done that in lots of ways for 22 years.”
