Hi there, I’m Christal! I am an Army/ANG veteran, turned student. I attended NWFSC and the University of Nebraska. For the past 12 years I have been ambitiously perfecting my craft in high-end salon culture while pursuing my passion for hair transformation. I specialize in color correction, formal hair, and hair extensions. The joy I find in creating a masterful hairstyle is my driving force, and the excitement of an ever-changing and evolving hair industry is what keeps me on my toes. In order to keep up with current trends, latest styles and new technology, I consistently seek professional education at every opportunity and in each specialty. My current favorite specialty is HAIR EXTENSIONS! There are so many methods to install hair extensions and I am proud to say that I am proficient in virtually every one: clip-ins/halos, tape-ins, keratin fusion, nano & I-tips, and I am SUPER excited to now be certified in the Habit Hand Tied Extension method. HHTE is the most innovative and natural looking way to install hair extensions and it is my favorite. I offer only the highest quality hair through the best rated companies including Bombshell, Socap, Halo Couture, and Hot Heads. In addition to the HHTE training, I have completed and assisted with many different classes and shows, nationwide, to include but certainly not limited to: Assisting Martin Parsons (Master Stylist and recipient of the First Lifetime Achievement Award in the Canadian Hairdressing Industry and NAHA Lifetime Achievement Award) in formal hair classes Completing advanced 2 day Color theory class with Miseal Aponte (Color Visionary, Expert Stylist, Educator & Platform Artist). Completing cutting classes through Hatori Hanso (number one shear brand in America) Completing cutting classes taught by Shannel Mariano (2018 Modern Salon 100 list, 2017 Behind The Chair Awards nominee, 2017 Behind The Chair Awards nominee, Vidal Sassoon Scholarship from Beauty Changes Lives, ZGAT Scholarship Hairbrained Shoot Out Contest Winner and Alterna Styling Contest Winner). Completing extended color classes thru Schwartzkof educators. Completing level 10 blonding with Sara Pestella (Stylist, Avant Garde Salon). As a result of my continual professional training, I won a Pureology contest which allowed me to attend specialized training at the Redken Exchange in New York City. The Mecca of the hair industry! I care very deeply and am extremely meticulous. I listen to my clients’ wishes and discuss their needs. Then we get to work. I put my whole heart into my work which is evident, again and again, in the happy faces and shining eyes of the people who walk through my door. Let’s see your happiest face and make your eyes shine!
