Reviews & Testimonials

Curly, color, cut, everything… here’s what our clients have to say!

Kristen knows her DevaCurl stuff! She cut and colored my hair and I really liked the result. She loves curls and it shows. She gave me good instructions on how to get the most out of my curls when I styled them at home.


Kristin King is the curl whisperer. She is my curly hair queen and i have nothing but high praises for her skill as a stylist and her character as a person. She is truly remarkable.

Kristen is a force of nature. We have been together (me in the chair) for about 20 years…from my short layered hair to now my long wavy hair…yes, as a stylist, colorist and curlyist, she is magnificent. But! that’s not all that a force of nature is….she listens, she shares, she notices that your hair might be thinning cause you need more vitamin D…we talk dogs and health and our kids…and oh gawd…when she gives me a good head scratch with my shampoo…well, then! And she has magical product that leaves me with sweet smelling mermaid hair. Curly, color, cut, everything..Kristen is great.

I knew I wanted a new style and having curly hair, it can be a challenge to find stylists who know what they’re doing and aren’t intimidated by my hair type. After a ton of research I found Kristen and I’m so glad I did! She’s amazing and knowledgeable. I went from very long hair to shoulder length, which is a pretty big step after having long curly hair for most of my life. She also did wonders with the color. I’m really happy to have found Kristen and an excited for my next visit with her.

AMAZING! My first dry cut on my naturally curly hair. Kristen is very knowledgeable and so sweet. My cut and detangle were virtually painless. I can t wait to show off my hair cut created for my specific curls. The products also smell AMAZING! If u have curly hair, u MUST go to ringlets and roots.

I am so happy to have found KRISTEN! I searched a long to find her. I have wavy hair. I’m in my 50s, and am just now embracing my waves. Before, I didn’t know HOW to embrace them. I certainly didn’t understand that waves/curls require their own cutting techniques AND products. Wavy/curly hair is a ‘whole different ball game.’ That is why going to typically trained stylists won’t ever be able to help me. NOW Kristen can. I love her one-on-one training too. Her exuberance is infectious. Love her!

I’ve fought my curls for 50 years. Then I found Kristen! I used to hate washing my hair. It meant losing so much time in front of the mirror. Now, with the right products and techniques that Kristen showed me, I’m done in a jiffy. I finally love my curls and they look great. I wish I had met Kristen decades ago!

Nicole Hodson

Kirsten is exceptional. I’ve never been to a stylist who specializes in curly hair. Who knew? I learned so much about my particular “curl families” (?) and how to care for them! A quote from my husband when I came home, “in 31 years this is the first time you have come home from a salon looking so great!”. That is the quentictial nod in my view! Thanks Kirsten…
