New color clients will be required to put down a non-refundable deposit at the time of booking which then comes off the total cost the day of the appointment.

Please be aware of my firm cancellation policy.  

About Me:

My name is Kristi and I'm the sole owner of Black Velvet Salon, LLC.

With 8 years of experience in the hair industry, I specialize in balayage, low-maintenance color, and I love both natural colors and fashion colors/vivids. I also enjoy doing cuts and styles of all lengths.

I believe in exceptional customer service, building trusting relationships, and educating my clients to ensure the integrity and longevity of their hair. I enjoy making people feel confident and rejuvenated by giving them a modern, fresh hairstyle.  

I was born and raised in Northern Virginia, graduated from Paul Mitchell The School in Tysons Corner, and I've attended the Wella studio in LA for additional training. I like to travel, hike, kayak, go to concerts, read, and watch terrible reality shows. I also enjoy spending my free time learning the latest techniques and investing in classes to continue my education.

I came to Kristi for a toner refresh at the recommendation of a friend, and was very happy with my visit. I had a great conversation with Kristi- she was very personable and did a great job! My hair looked shiny, beautiful, and was styled exactly how I wanted. I also took home some Olaplex products, which I loved. Last, but not least, her salon decor is absolutely the coolest! I don't get my hair done as often as I'd like, but I'd definitely visit her again.

It’s hard to explain in words how much I love Kristi! I am so thankful to have been referred to her by a family member and will never go to anyone else for as long as I can! She really listens and understands exactly what I want and goes above and beyond to make my hair look beautiful, be low maintenance, and stay healthy. My only reservation in recommending her to everyone I know is that there is only one of her and I want her all to myself! But really, I’m convinced she’s a magician.

Kristi was awesome and did a super job mixing up a custom color to make my purple dye job pop. She has a great attention to detail with the cut as well. And so nice too!

Kristi is only the second person I've EVER trusted to color my hair in my whole long life - and that has paid off time and again. She is patient, creative, adventurous and really listens when I say I want low maintenance but lots of drama (almost an impossible combo). Highly recommended.
