Kristie started her career when she was in high school, although she didn't know it at the time. She struggled to find a stylist that could achieve her desired look, so she just started doing it herself. What began as a hobby later expanded into a career she loves. Since being licensed in 2011, she has expanded her skills into skincare as well. Her specialties are brow shaping, cutting, coloring, balayage, and skincare. She has little time to relax while juggling a career, motherhood, and many hobbies- including upcycling, art projects, upholstery and chicken tending. When she is not building her knowledge of all things cosmetology, she is spending time with her husband and three children.
