Chris has been a professional hair stylist and colorist for over 15 years. His personal passion started much earlier, at age 8, when his Grandmother taught him how to set her hair in curlers in the small town of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Chris has come a long way since those days as a little boy who loved to play with hair – but his passion remains the same. Chris believes that each client deserves beautiful healthy hair that expresses their individual style and inner beauty.
Chris trained in New York with Loreal Professional Academy in advanced color techniques and worked as color protégée with industry icon and celebrity colorist Beth Minardi. In addition to his colorist expertise he completed advanced cutting training with Nick Arrojo also in New York after completing his beauty school training in 2000 at Jaques Dessange.
Chris has spent the last 6 years as a stylist and colorist in Chicago, where he considers home. He lives in Andersonville with his fiancé Sean and the other love of his life, his mini Poodle Asher. Chris prides himself on the business he receives from referral and word of mouth – so if you haven’t already come see him - please do, and let him make a fan out of you!

Chris is amazing! I was nervous to find a new stylist after moving here three years ago and Chris has been absolutely perfect. He has mad skills and is a very genuine person. I can't recommend him any higher. Bottom line Chris rocks and you won't be disappointed!

Chris is everything I want in a stylist: he really listens to what I want, offers his expert opinions to make it even better, and then makes it all happen! He's great at making me feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire visit, and offers helpful tips for maintaining my hair in between appointments. I strongly recommend Chris for both cut and color (he does the most beautiful highlights!!).

Been going to Chris for years, hands down gives the best Men's cuts. He stays current on trends, gives advice on what looks good, and most of all LISTENS to what you want. Highly recommend!
