In 1995 I dove in to this wonderful world of beauty and fashion.Through the years it has been exciting to see how trends come and go, and I have enjoyed staying on top of them, as well as keeping my team trained to perform them. As the privileged Owner, Master stylist and Esthetician at Salon & Spa De Crist, I have a strong passion for this amazing industry. I thank the Lord daily when I walk through the doors of this beautiful Salon & Spa. He truly has made it what it is today. My most favorite thing about being a stylist and an Esthetician is being able to create a customized look specifically for you. I’m not afraid to tell you the truth and if its not a good look for you I will be honest with you. I tell my girls " you don’t do anyone a favor by being dishonest with your clients, shoot them straight and they will love you for it!" I also offer an array of different types of facials in the spa. We just launched a new product line called Repechage, which recently made its way across the country to the Midwest. My clients have loved the results from the organic Seaweed and 4-layer facial. There are so many benefits to using Seaweed on our skin, for example, it calms the skin after a Microdermabrasion which removes dead skin, unwanted fine lines, age spots, and acne scars. I also offer body waxing which is a great way to thin out all that unwanted body hair! So what is next? How about an appointment! Click on the home page and book online today!

I have always had a passion for hair, beauty, and fashion. In 2006 I was blessed to become a part of Salon and Spa De Crist, and I completed a two year apprenticeship under Janel Schick in 2009. I could not imagine receiving a better training anywhere else. The knowledge I gained from Janel gave me an understanding of hair and a confidence in my skills that set me leaps and bounds beyond the average student. I specialize in trend-setting men and women's cuts and colors.
In 2010 a dream came true for me and I became a film credited makeup artist. I got to work with a makeup artist from LA who had created the looks on big titles like "Nightmare on Elm Street" and "3:10 to Yuma." Becoming a makeup artist was actually my original goal when I stepped into the cosmetology career, and it was a thrilling experience to finally accomplish it. Since my experience on the movie set, my makeup business has grown without much effort-partially because I specialize in airbrushed makeup. I have gotten to do makeup for other small films, large weddings, formal events, and even training sessions for clients who want to enhance their God-given beauty.
My number one desire for my clients is to help them become confident in who they are, whether male or female, and set a new standard for "natural beauty". I believe that we should always take pride in who we are-who God has created us to be- and this is conveyed thru our hair, our makeup, and our self-care routines. My hope is that I will not only meet your needs, but also inspire you to become more confident and aware of your potential!
Kylie Farnsworth- Stylist & Extension Specialist
Hair and fashion trends have been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I am constantly gaining new abilities and creative ideas by following looks in magazines and runway, modifying and recreating the latest and greatest. The importance of feeling beautiful and confident every day is something that I strive to give to each and every client I see, whether it's through a trendy new haircut, or a sleek, natural color. Speaking of feeling beautiful, I also am known to be the "bridal stylist". I have been the trusted stylist to many brides through the years. I love wedding parties! It’s always such an honor to be a part of the big day, the excitement and energy in the air is always so much fun! Your hair will always come out amazing regardless of any circumstance. I also travel on location to style hair for more convenience to the bridal party. I enjoy teaching my clients exactly how to perfect their look so that they feel comfortable recreating their style at home. Although I enjoy and am skilled in all aspects of hairstyling I have a special place in my heart for long blonde hair. That being said, I specialize in beautiful blonde color, as well as Vision hair extensions. I am a firm believer that your hair should look shiny, healthy and beautiful when you leave the salon, so I do everything I can to maintain the quality of my clients hair. The Vision hair extensions are a beautiful, natural looking addition to any head of hair, and should never cause unwanted damage or stress.

Erica Bowman- Stylist
I am so blessed to call Salon and Spa De Crist my home, since August of 2011, when I began my journey as Janel Schick’s new apprentice. After receiving my bachelor's degree in business/ marketing in May of 2011, I realized that I was in the wrong place. It has been my passion since I was in high school to be a part of the fashion and beauty industry; Janel has given me the opportunity to live out my passion and I am so excited to be learning under her instruction. I have a vision of changing people’s lives by making them feel and look their absolute best. I believe that beauty starts on the inside, but it is completed when one feels they look just as beautiful on the outside. It is my goal through this apprenticeship to become proficient in all types of color, cutting and styling techniques in order to achieve my vision of enhancing the unique qualities of each client I see. I love to get to know each person that sits in my chair, I would love the chance to get to know you and create a look that is all your own!
