For Krista Ritchie, hairstyling and make-up artistry are a passion. She strives to develop a strong relationship with each of her clients which allows her to tailor each color and style to their needs. She specializes in balayage, blondes, and hair extensions (by The Hair Shop, Bellami Hair, Aqua Hair, and HairDreams). She says, “The transformative power of a new hairstyle continually draws me in because there are very few professions where you can impact people in such a profound way and bring a smile to a client's face time after time.”
Krista is a stylist at The Hair Lounge in Tampa, Florida where takes pride in every service that she offers and strives to provide her clients with the most up-to-date styles and products. She has continued learning about a variety of brands, such as Kevin Murphy, Kemon, Brazilian Blowout, Global Keratin, Lasio Keratin, Keratin Complex, and Redken so that she may perfect her skills and offer each of her clients the very best. “Our hair is our greatest accessory, and I look forward to bringing out the very best version of you,” she exclaims.
Krista feels that becoming a member of the Unicorn Allianc3 was a bright moment in her career. She explains, “To be able to be a part of such an amazing, talented, and loving group of artists is a rare opportunity that I am so grateful to have.” For her, being a member has sparked a new flame and pushed her to expand her skills, seek out new educational opportunities, and continue to strive to reach new levels, whether that be to become an educator, a platform artist, and just an overall better stylist.
