MEET KRISSY: FEBRUARY SPOTLIGHT ARTIST
By Bliss Winnetka | February 12, 2021
Krissy has been¬†in the hair industry is spanning over 15 years.¬† Her beginning years included High-end haircutting and coloring services in Suburban Detroit.¬† The last 8 years being with Sassoon specializing and honing in on all aspects that make a haircut precise, yet wash and wear.¬† She¬†worked on both coasts beginning of her¬†journey at Sassoon New York.¬† Spending three years building a clientele in the city and studying to teach the Sassoon cutting techniques. With a transfer to San Francisco, teaching academy courses went into full swing, while building a clientele as well.¬† Then a few years later she¬†transfer to Sasson in Chicago led to a Creative Directorse¬†position and part-time client building in the Northbrook location.¬† Again building on my passion for teaching the foundational skills of cutting the Sassoon Way,¬† I soon found my self full time teaching in the Chicago location and then full-time building clients in the Sassoon Northbrook location shortly after.¬† ¬†Over the years traveled to Denver, LA, and Baton Rouge to share her¬†haircutting knowledge with other stylists.¬†
¬† ¬†Another inspiring part of my journey has been doing hair at NY Fashion Week with the Sassoon team since 2013.¬† I worked with designers such as Threeasfour, Eckhaus Latta, Maryam NassirZadeh, Namilia, Libertine, and more to come!¬†¬†
¬† For her, doing hair is not work, but my passion.¬† Whether it's a pixie cut, short haircut, men's cut, classic or creative haircut, some factors in what thoughtful haircuts include are suitability to the client's facial features, daily maintenance needs/wants, deciding on a "Look", combing techniques such as lines, layers¬†and graduation with personal taste and style of the client. These factors of the haircut are decided by always beginning each service with a consultation.¬† Krissy and you will¬†come up with a verbal agreement together before proceeding.¬† The technique is executed on wet hair, then your hair is blown dry based on how you would like it dried or the most common daily styling you do or don't do,¬† with emphasis on the ability to check the haircut.¬† Then she checks through for cleanliness, balance, and finishing touches!¬† The part of the process where the whole look comes together in a beautiful package, You! Krissy works very well with our top hair colorists and uses her brilliant cutting techniques in line with your perfect highlight, balayage or creative color.
