Who We Are....

Chrystal L. and her team of independent stylist 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

As far back as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be hair stylist. I grew up doing my whole family’s hair and I loved every minute of it!

I went to college to pursue a career in education, but quickly realized that my passion was helping people look and feel good about themselves. I LOVE that I get to help change how someone feels and teach them how to recreate their look at home. I always try to keep it real with my clients and work with them to find the best possible look for their lifestyles and face shapes.

I listen to my clients’ needs and remember everything they tell me, which helps me to customize the experience to suit their needs. I truly care about my clients and believe that hair is hair, you diagnose it and go from there!

I love to make people laugh and I’m pretty sure I could do stand up comedy. You can always tell how I feel from my facial expressions, which is a blessing and a curse. I am a mom to three beautiful kiddos, who I refer to as my Big, Middle and Little.

I started Chrystal L. Hair & Makeup in 2014 after completing a beauty apprenticeship, renting a booth for 2 years, overcoming a few obstacles, and building a solid clientele based solely off of referrals. The salon has been a huge success, and has even been featured in the press: The Columbia Tribune; University of Missouri student papers; and most recently hired to do hair & makeup for a national CBS Sports and Motorola commercial.
