Kristie Michaels, Master Stylist


Kristie Michaels | Master Stylist

Once you meet Kristie, you’ll be shocked to know she ever did anything besides hair and styling. Her first professional years were spent in the humdrum world of corporate human resources, but a calling to something more exciting and creative led her to a stylist apprenticeship. Today, more than 18 years since she made the switch from an office block to coloring smocks, this vivacious redhead loves creating looks that make her clients feel happy, confident, and radiant. “We deal in relationships and artistry at the same time, so each person that sits in our chair has a unique experience because they bring part of the equation, and we bring the other part,” she says. When she’s not behind the chair or stirring up a new color for a client, you can find Kristie planning her next vacation adventure, diving head first into a book, working out a yoga flow, or spending time with her dogs, Wheezie and Mona, and her children, Molly and Jack.

Specialties: Curly Hair, Updos, Braids, and Color

Drama or comedy? I’m a sucker for a laugh.

Short or long? I like both styles, and it’s fun to mix it up.

Salty or sweet? Both—it depends on the day.
