Who We Are....

Chrystal L. and her team live each day in pursuit of their life’s purpose – to provide consistent quality in performance and service for every client.

Reflecting on our own personal style, we offer what could be called a modern take on hair - creative enough for a pop star performance, polished enough for the career professional, or effortlessly chic enough for the farmer’s market.  


What We do.....

We create styles that stand out, but also styles you can feel more than confident enough to wear and recreate at home.

We specialize in all hair and skin types, and use hair and makeup products that are  all vegan, sulfate free, salt free, gluten free, paraben free, phthalate free, PABA free, carcinogen free, MEA and DEA free and recycle our packaging whenever possible.


Chrystal L.

Owner, Master Stylist & Makeup Artist

Chrystal L. is originally from St. Louis MO, and moved to Columbia when she was 15 years old.  As far back as she can remember she wanted to be hair stylist. She grew up doing her whole family’s hair and loved every minute of it. However, she always felt beauty was a profession that was frowned upon, so she decided she would pursue a career in education.  After attending college and working toward a teaching degree, she realized that her real passion was in the beauty industry.  In 2010, Chrystal was fortune enough to do a beauty apprenticeship, which reignited the fire and passion in her to bring out the beauty in others.  After completing her apprenticeship, she became a booth renter for 2 years and continued to master the craft of hair, makeup, and running a small business. After building a solid clientele, based solely off of customer referrals, in January 2016 Chrystal decided to take a leap of faith and open her first salon-Chrystal L. Hair & Makeup.  Though intertwined with some obstacles, the experience has been a huge success. The salon has been featured on the front page of the Business Section of the Tribune; been the subject of several student papers; selected to do Hair & Makeup for several local business marketing companies; and most recently hired to do Hair & Makeup for a national CBS sports and Motorola commercial.  Chrystal is known for her multidimensional highlights and color. Her clients keep coming back because of her ability to bring out the beauty in each person who sits in her chair.
