Kristen has been working in salons/spas since the age of 17, both as a receptionist and an assistant. She fell in love with the industry and decided to go to school at Versailles Academy here in Ottawa where she received both her Esthetician and Makeup Artistry Diplomas. She has been an esthetician and makeup artist for eight years now and has been working at Third Avenue for four of those amazing years!
She performs makeup applications (specializing in bridal), eyelash extensions, manicures, pedicures, waxing, tinting and facials. Kristen received her certificate as a GM Collin Master Esthetician and loves to share her skin care knowledge with all her guests.
Kristen specializes in special effects makeup and has worked on several films, commercials and tv shows! When she’s not making pretty at the spa, she’s making people…not so pretty on set!
Her favourite thing about working at Third Avenue Spa is that we are one big family. We have such an amazing clientele that make us excited to be at work! You will see us joking and laughing often because we work in such a healthy environment filled with love!
Kristen’s favourite thing to do after work is get into her comfy clothes, make a nice cup of tea and cuddle on her couch with her dogs and husband.
