Kristie Barter Mabry

Kristie joined our team in 2015 while still enrolled in cosmetology
school. She came to us early in her career excelling by leaps and
bounds, in various facets over the last 4 years. In 2016, she obtained
her Cosmetology license, immediately going on and graduating
from the Haircolor Academy the following year. Since then, she
has focused her attention on Non Surgical Hair Replacement.
Kristie is not only educated in a host of hair extension application
techniques but she is currently studying to become a Trichologist.
Most recently she partnered with a hair replacement company that
specializes in long term wiggery for clients with advanced thinning
or hair integration needs (coming in Jan 2020). She could not be
more excited to add hair replacement to her host of skills to help
clients regain their image and confidence. You can find Kristie in
both Greene and Farmingdale locations!

with years of experience in diverse work settings,
which fostered her love of tailored haircutting.

Cosmetology degree then went on to graduate
from the Hair Color Academy this year! Cynthia
has also taken classes over the years in texture
preservation and maintenance, focusing her
efforts on curly hair and maintaining a frizz free

exquisite skills in blonding, and lighter hair color
tones. Cynthia is available at our Greene location.
