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

With 6 years of experience in the hair industry, I specialize in balayage and I love both natural colors and fashion colors/vivids. I also enjoy doing cuts and styles of all lengths.

I believe in thorough consultations, 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 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 training. I like to travel, go to concerts, read, watch terrible reality shows, and spend time with my animals. I also enjoy spending my free time researching new techniques and attending classes to continue my education. Hair and art have molded into one for me, and I can't imagine doing anything else!

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.

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!
