Growing up near New York City, Kristen Keller always knew that she wanted to do hair. As a child, she would to set up a mini salon in her bedroom. In college, she found herself cutting her classmates’ hair. Kristen’s original intention was to work in the fashion industry after graduating from FIT, but she found herself drawn to hair again and again. After attending the Aveda Institute in Manhattan, she joined the staff at Whittemore House in 2009. Since then, she has completed the rigorous in-house education program.
Kristen’s favorite decades are all before the 2000s, but most of her preferred hair moments come from the ‘70s. Brooke Shields in Blue Lagoon is still her ideal look. Cher and Farah Fawcett are other favorites. Kristen believes that everyone should embrace their hair and work with it. She enjoys working with all different lengths and textures, though she does love long hair. She also works to expand clients’ horizons, showing straight haired clients that they can have wavy hair and frizzy haired clients that their hair can be smooth and manageable. Ultimately, Kristen most enjoys making other people feel confident about their appearance. Her extensive training and creativity make her an asset to the Whittemore House team.
