H E L L O  I' M  K R I S T E N !

I moved to STL from the East coast in 2010 and fell in love with this city. In 2012 I dove head first into salon leadership and opened Thirteenth & Washington! I have 16 years of experience as a colorist, national haircolor educator, and beauty industry blogger. 

Most days you can find me in the salon either behind the chair doing what I love most, redecorating/ organizing the salon all while having conversations with myself, enjoying a local cafe for lunch with one or all 3 of my kiddos, or enjoying time at home with my family.

I’m most known for creating timeless looks that result in a lifetime of healthy hair. Adding in one row of extensions is one of my favorite ways to create your dream hair as they are low maintenance, allow for easier styling at home, and can allow you to have highlights without altering your natural hair dramatically. I absolutely love creating all natural looking colors however, I love creating dimensional brunettes and reds most of all! I also specialize in razor cuts and dry haircutting. 

In the chair I love to educate you on the best hair maintenance practices based on your lifestyle. Instead of following trends I empower my clients to make changes to their hair that gives them the confidence to start their own trends.

I am most passionate about empowering you to chase your dreams, take action, and have the knowledge to look incredible while doing it! I love seeing my clients open their own business or request the promotion they deserve and make life changing decisions for a better work life balance. 

If you’re dying to hear more, here are 5 things you might not know about me:

1: I come from a family of hairstylists. My grandmother, aunts, mother and cousin all do hair. We have a family owned salon in the Pocono mountains that has been open for over 35 years.

2: I wanted to go to school for interior design but chose beauty school until I could make a final decision. Fast forward still doing hair and LOVE it. 

3: I’m a Manifesting Generator in human design and the most Virgo, Virgo you’ll ever meet in astrology.

4: My husband Tony and I have twin 4 yr old boys, a 2 yr old daughter, a 5 yr old French Bulldog named Olive, and a 4th baby boy on the way! 

5: I always knew I wanted to be a business owner and a mom. My dad owned a print shop with my grandpa for many years and I loved making my own business cards and notepads just for fun. I also spent many summers answering the phones and sweeping up in my family’s salon.
