Kristin has lived in the Hudson Valley area her entire life. She has always loved styling hair and doing makeup since she was a little girl. She decided to turn her life-long passion into a career in 2019 when she quit her 9 to 5 day-job and went to school to become a cosmetologist. She wouldn’t trade it for the world! She began in the salon world but knew her heart was in bridal hair and makeup, so she ditched the color bowls and grabbed the hairspray, teasing comb and makeup brushes and has never looked back. Kristin’s passion is making every single person feel the most beautiful by enhancing what they already have.
