Attending the Roger Williams University in Rhode Island, Kristen couldn’t shake her passion for hairdressing. She started doing freelance hair and makeup for model agencies and bridal party’s. Wanting to specialize in hair color, she then headed to the Big Apple to follow these dreams. She discovered ARROJO Cosmetology School and didn’t look back, graduating with the highest GPA. Citing her love for the brand, especially the commitment to educate young stylists, Kristen joined the color apprentice-training program at our TriBeCa location. Now a full-time colorist with a knack for tailor-made hues, she blends textbook technique with a painter’s eye to fashion beautiful colors for each client. “I love making people feel good about themselves while allowing my creativity to flourish,” she says. Kristen is originally from Westerly, Rhode Island.
