Kristen has served the salon industry both behind the chair as a hairstylist as well as a salon owner for over 15 years.
Throughout her career one thing that she has found was that wherever she went she was always able to attract two things…opportunities and clients.
In 2007 she opened the doors to her salon. She quickly attracted old and new clients and had a solid book of clients within here first 6 months. In 2008 Kristen hired her first employee and began mentoring, teaching and coaching each new hire.
What she discovered through teaching her new stylists was a unique set of skills and practices that she implemented behind the chair that was different from other hairstylists; and seemed to be a magnet for clients, referrals, opportunities and income.
Since then, Kristen has grown her small salon to produce multiple 7 figures over the last ten years and has coached the stylists that work for her to create 6 figure books behind the chair. She is now taking this knowledge and experience to help other driven and motivated hairstylists do the same in the IN DEMAND HAIRSTYLIST online course!
Kristen works with hairstylists in areas of self development and business building; including clarity and mindset, habits, goal setting, consistency, professionalism and money management.
Her belief is that no one area will give you the true success and fulfillment that your looking for but a combination of each of these will help build a strong FOUNDATION in which your dream life and career can and will be built!
How I Got Started
Hi There! I’m so glad you stopped by to check out what I’m all about.
My mission, above all else, is to impact and inspire others to live out their true potential. My jam is living fully, loving and serving others by supporting them in discovering their passions, potential and creating a clear and actionable plan to get there.
Here is me in a nutshell…I’ve loved hair, makeup, fashion and all things girl for as long as I can remember.
As a little girl you could find me roller skating through my house in a girly night gown and my long clip in ponytail or prancing around in my Mom’s high heels.
Let’s press the skip button on the award middle school years (eek!) and go straight to high school where I was always doing hair and makeup on all of my friends for school dances and Friday nights out. I actually became pretty good at it although I never considered it to be a career option for me.
It wasn’t until I spent one semester at college feeling disconnected that I decided to pursue my true passion for beauty. I dropped the pencils and books & picked up the scissors and blowdryer and never looked back.
I grew up in household of entrepreneurial spirited parents so I watched them create, figure out and grow several businesses throughout my younger years. From this, I learned the power of taking bold leaps of faith, hard work, persistence and learning as you go.
I became a licensed cosmetologist in 2003 and in 2007 I opened my own salon. This journey for over a decade has allowed me to not only serve thousands of guests and build amazing relationships, but I’ve been able to mentor, grow and coach hairstylists to massive success. It has been the greatest teacher of my life and now I’m excited to share my 16 years of experience and knowledge with hairstylists all over the country so they too can build powerful, fulfilling and enriching lives and careers behind the chair.
