Doing hair has been Kristina’s dream since she was a little girl. She realized hair was her passion when she began doing her mother’s, her sister’s, and her neighbors’ hair at just 12 years old.

As time went on, Kristina began going to school, and learned the skills she incorporates today. She loves making people happy with the way they look, and she looks forward to helping you, as well!
