Kristina McMaster

Kristina McMaster

Instructor

I have been in the hair industry since 1999, my graduation is from Headmasters in downtown Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. I grew up in Seattle area and attended Washington State University majoring in communications and minoring in journalism. I was a Gamma Phi Beta in the Greek system but before I could finish I realized my passion was for hair. I've worked for an Aveda lifestyle concept salon for seven years, learning all about the Ayurvedic system and extensive aromatherapy and reflexology philosophies. Including east versus west concepts. I have been certified in all aspects including Dermalogica Certified with training in Torrance, California. Facials was an amazing work opportunity and I realized I thoroughly enjoyed working with it! I then worked as an independent stylist/esthetician for 11 years in Coeur d'Alene at two different service salons working mostly with Redken but also with Pravana, Davines, All Nutrients, and Joico. As of 2016, I decided I wanted to pursue what I've always wanted to do, teach! I have been lucky enough to be working with an amazing group of instructors who are now known as TONI&GUY and I am so excited to be a part of this team and help in creating and building a new generation of amazing cosmetologists!

I've gained extensive experience and training in Redken and TIGI color, Dermalogica Esthetics, reflexology and specializing as an Idaho State Boards Instructor. I have enjoyed competing in the Spokane IECA and placed for Haircuts and Styles. During my free time my passion for teaching led me to earn my Bachelors in English and Elementary Education.
