Curly Hair Stylist
KRISTEN KLING: CURLY HAIR & COLOR SPECIALIST
I’m happy that you’re interested in knowing who I am and what I bring to the table for my curl clients, color clients & my silver hair reveal clients. I work, specifically, with natural, s’waves, waves, curls & coils, and if you understand the curl # system, curl types from 2A to 4C.
I, also, color your textured hair with products that are gentle, nearly organic, for permanent color for gray to hand-painted Balayage & many techniques to achieve the color placements for my clients.
The products I insist on you removing from your hair care for your textured hair are Silicones, Sulfates, Parabens, Pegs, Formaldehyde, Alcohol, Synthetic Fragrances & color. I help each client figure that out on their first curl care appointment.
My education with curls: I being a “corky” curl type, has always been a passion of mine. 2007 was the transformation of putting the curl clients on the salon “menu” with Deva Curl, NYC.
Since then, 2019, the curl world has exploded with products, videos, youtube, FBers. Education gave me many certifications from Deva, Certified Advanced curl stylist & colorist, Curly Hair Artistry, Atlanta, Ga, & recently, Rëzo Academy curl cuts & Rëzo Lights. My focus was on creating the best curl & color salon, exclusively, on the Monterey Peninsula & beyond. I believe I have achieved that.
My education with color: Color was my first love before curls because there was NO curl care back in the ’90s. I am a former L’Oreal Education Director & a former Schwarzkopf Education Director, as well. I worked with, both, companies educating salon colorists with color formulas & color techniques & color corrections & products, on the East Coast & the West. Hair shows: Key accounts in LA, SF, NYC and beyond gave me an education beyond the “chair”.
I added, a year ago, working with clients with curls that would like to transition from hair color to their natural hair color, silver or otherwise. This is a huge shift & trend. Happy to help.
I continue to keep the lights on for your curl & color care through educating Y.O.U.!
