Loved Kristina expertise on my curly hair, she did a beautiful cut and full highlights that got me many compliments. I am going again for roots touch up.

Went to Kristina for the first time a few days ago and was waiting to wash and style my hair myself before making recommendation. I am absolutely satisfied with my cut. I have fine frizzy hair and wanted layers and she did an amazing job. Will be going back to her and recommending to my friends. Thank you Kristina!

A friend recommended Kristina to me and OH MY GOSH. She is the ONLY person I will ever let touch my hair again. The transformation she did on mine is unbelievable. Kristina saved my hair from disaster. I will continue to go see her. I’m obsessed with my hair thanks to Kristina! ♥️

I have tried many hair stylists and without a doubt, Kristina is the best. I thought that no one could handle my hair – thin and curly/wavy, very hard to maintain. It was a total surprise! This was the first time I saw such a precise cut. But the best part is that after washing at home, the hair practically arranged itself, and looks much fuller than before. I don't know how that can be done, but Kristina did it! She is professional, she listens and advises. The atmosphere was relaxing due to her friendly personality. I am very pleased with the coloring, haircutting, and top-level styling. Thank you Kristina, and see you soon!

Kris has been my stylist for several years and I sincerely hope we continue our relationship for decades. She listens, which in my experience, is similar to finding the holy grail. Her insightful advice on my ever-changing short style is priceless. This guidance ranges from styling products to flattering color to the best choices for my hair’s texture and thickness as well as face shape. When I was faced hormonal fluctuations, my hair changed in thickness along with transitioning from straight to curly. Kris has been there offering gentle guidance every step of the way. I’m grateful for her coaching to keep my spunky cut looking healthy and flattering.

I chose Kristina based on these testimonials and have to agree 100% she is great. I was looking for ideas on how to work with my hair length, texture and type and she took the time to discuss my options for trying to recreate my style. She made me feel comfortable and confident that I could get a new look and know how to style it on my own.
