Inside the salon 

I love working with all hair types and all types of clients, from the most conservative look to the funkiest styles you could dream up. I like creating my looks with Goldwell color, foiling, Elumen fashion colors and cutting.

Outside the salon

My family is my world. I love spending time with my boyfriend and my two cats, Paul and Fez. I love doing arts and crafts in my spare time, especially pottery and making jewelry. I love Portland’s wide selection of locally owned restaurants and enjoy trying new places when I can.

Kristen studied cosmetology as an apprentice and has been in the industry for six years.

“I’d wanted to be a stylist since I was very young, always doing my hair and makeup with my grandmother. My whole family knew I’d be in this industry one way or another,” she says.

“I love all aspects of doing hair, but I specialize in hair smoothing and permanent straightening, which is also one of my favorite things to do.”
