Kristie also helped develop and launch several color products with the Clairol/Logics line. In 2001 Kristie left Clairol and accepted a position at then Rodney-Gaven Salon, now known as Studio Gaven in Nashville, TN. She colored the tresses of many Country and Christian music celebrities as well as many high profile business associates in the Nashville area. Kristie came back to the Huntsville area and began again where she first launched her career. In September of 2013, she decided to make her dream of owning a salon a reality. The booming Blow Dry Bars in New York and California intrigued her and she wanted to combine salon and blow dry bar into one to fill a greater client need. Huntsville is a very diverse and progressive city and really is ready for this industry changing addition to her salon.
