Kristen Hoover

Owner, Stylist

 

Experience and Education:


I have been in the hair industry for over 20 years, and I continue to carry a real passion for creating new shapes and styles for my clients. I am a graduate of Sam Brocato’s Lockworks Academy In Baton Rouge, and I have worked with and learned from some of the best hairdressers in our industry. I’ve attended many classes including Toni & Guy and Redken Fifth Avenue in NYC, and I am always looking for opportunities to learn, whether it is a class in Vegas or watching another stylist in my salon.

 

Education Goals:


My education goals are to continue to challenge myself as a stylist and to keep up with the latest techniques and trends. I’m always looking for practical, hands on education that I can bring back into my salon.

 

Personal Goals:


One word: balance. I’m trying to find balance between managing my salon, giving to my clients behind the chair, and spending time with my family.

 

Obsessions:


My current obsessions are blogging and yoga.

 

Challenges:


Giving myself permission to step away from the salon and enjoy some downtime.

 

Hair Crushes:


My hair crushes all have one common theme: natural, shiny hair with movement. Some of my favorites are Jennifer Aniston’s “lob”,  Jennifer Lawrence’s pixie cut, and I am loving the blunt bobs that are being sported by Emma Stone, Kristen Wiig and Reese Witherspoon.

 

Pastimes and Passions:


I love working on my blog, kristenhoover.net and I enjoy reading and practicing yoga. I am pretty low-key. I would like to travel more and cooking and entertaining for friends and family is one of my favorite things to do!

 

Personal Style:


I love classic styles mixed with an element of earthy “hippie chic”.

 

Hair I love to do:


I love soft, healthy hair that is not drenched in a lot of product. Whether it’s short and cropped or long layers and curls, hair that has shine and movement is the prettiest to me. I love to create soft organic looks that have an edge to them. I believe that hair should reflect a client’s personality and style and should not take large amounts of time to style.
