Kristin has a passion for making people feel their best through beautiful and stylish haircuts and colors. She knew the salon life was for her at an early age, while creating her Barbie doll's seasonal bob or perfecting her array of braids! Since 2004, she has specialized in the French technique for women's and men's cuts while also focusing on styling, special event and wedding hair.
After completing the Gene Juarez Academy and Advanced Training Program, Kristin's love for learning earned her a position as a Gene Juarez Salon product educator and member of the team that created the Gene Juarez product line Identity. Kristin has styled at fashion shows, print work and trained with editorial stylists from Kerastase, Bumble & Bumble, Shu Uemura, and L’Oreal.
More recently, she has continued taking advanced training courses for current hair cutting techniques, Keratin treatments, Balayage highlighting, color techniques, and product knowledge education with Oribe and R&Co. When not at the salon, she enjoys hiking, kayaking and spending time with her fiancé Kyle and her dog Sumo. You might also find her pretending to be a pro soccer player at Arena Sports in Redmond!
