Kristy admits her most often used phrase is ‘Everything happens for a reason’ which is fitting given that her cosmetology teacher from high school is now her colleague! Split Enz owner Sam was teaching at Gloucester High School when Kristy went through the program and clearly demonstrated promise that Sam remembered a decade later.
Born and raised in Gloucester, Kristy has been at home in a salon environment since she can remember. Her aunt worked in a salon and Kristy used to imitate what she saw being done with clients on mannequins and her passion developed. She began interning in a salon in Grafton at only 15 years-old! She honed her craft managing a corporate salon in Williamsburg for 2 years, then working in another salon in Williamsburg for 5 years. Earlier this year she landed at Split Enz Salon.
Kristy is incredibly talented and skilled in make up application and hair services, but her favorite beauty service to perform is color. She absolutely loves the transformation, the before and after of making hair vibrant and dynamic.
When she’s not making people beautiful in the salon Kristy loves spending quality time with her husband and 19 month-old daughter Chloe. In fact, when asked what her greatest achievement is her response isn’t career related, it’s hands down her baby girl. “She is the sunshine in my day!”, she says with a proud Mama giggle.
