Kristen McGuire - Stylist
Years Of Experience: My very first day of Beauty School was St. Patrick’s Day of 2008 and I have been at Gravity since November of 2011.
Education and Certification: Since Gravity is a Redken Salon, I have completed cutting and coloring courses at their Exchange in NYC. I have also taken several classes with Redken’s incredible Education Artistic Director, Sam Villa. I pride myself on my extensive advanced education in both balayage and color correction. I am Babe Extension, Keratin Complex and Brazilain Blowout Certified.
When I Am Not In The Salon I: enjoy spending time with my husband and two sons. My boys are almost 13 years apart so it’s always comical! My husband and I both have art backgrounds, so you can usually find us involved in a project. Many of my hobbies and interests involve releasing creative energy. I am a soup-aholic and am always trying new recipes. I enjoy hosting fun theme parties and pulling out all the stops. We spend our summer weekends in Ocean City, New Jersey, and I also love to travel. Lastly, I am the salon hair nerd, so in my spare time, I am usually reading or watching videos on new hair trends!
My Favorite Thing About Being A Hair Stylist Is: color! I believe my strength is in balayage and lived-in color looks. I love looking at skin tones and eye colors and using that as inspiration to accentuate someone’s unique beauty. I also enjoy debulking and texturizing hair. My own hair is quite thick and I know the joy of having it cut just right!
What I Love Most About My Job At Gravity Is: forming relationships with my clients. It’s amazing how quickly they become close friends of mine in and out of the chair! We have been through many life milestones with each other over the years and I sincerely care about each and every one on a personal level. I strive to create a flawless customer experience as a thank you. Making others happy makes me happy.
My Favorite Hair Product Is: EVO Salty Dog. My favorite use for this sea salt spray is on men’s hair for touchable grittiness. I also love to use it on women with finer hair textures to add thickness, or prior to air drying wavy hair.
