Kristen’s education began immediately after high school at CAPRI Institute of Cosmetology.
Kristen Marie began her styling career in 2008, specializing in balayage techniques and natural, lived-in styles. With her passion for creativity and natural artistic abilities, she always knew she wanted to share it with the world in some way. She spent the last 8 years of her career working at one of the top high end salons just outside of New York City, building and maintaining a large clientele. Kristen prides herself on being detail oriented, attentive and educating her clients. With each individual, her main focus is to determine what the client HAS, what the client WANTS, and most importantly what the client NEEDS. This is always done alongside giving a unique and personalized touch. Kristen is excited to be continuing her career in her new home of Florida with Idéologie Salon.
Outside of Kristen’s styling career, she spends her time around horses as a competitive show jumper, training under some of the top coaches in the sport. Her love for riding began as a little girl. She learned to ride a horse before learning to tie her shoes (not even kidding!)
When Kristen isn’t in the saddle, you can usually find her in the gym. Fitness and overall health is also a huge passion of hers. She enjoys lifting weights and the art of bodybuilding. One of her most recent goals is to compete on stage in a bikini competition!
