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. When I’m not in the salon, you can usually find me spending time with my husband and stepchildren or snuggling with my two cats. I love doing arts and crafts when I find some alone 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 since 2010. She has been all over the world to continue her education, including New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Barcelona, Spain.
“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 color, and hair smoothing treatments, which are my favorite things to do.”
