The CoLab Team


Kristen Collins

It seems like fate that this 2nd generation hairdresser would join the CoLab family.  With over 5 years experience, Kristen brings a fresh perspective, passion for continuing education, and a personal style that balances current trends and classic sophistication to her clients.

Kristen is a classically trained flute player, life-long knitter, animal lover and mother to her beautiful daughter.  

Her clients know that for Kristen, it's more than just about hair. It's about building relationships.  She strives to reveal what's possible, making her clients look and feel their absolute best.  Her goal is to break down boundaries of negative self image that stem from industry and society beauty standards.
