Kristin Sky Olsen (she/her)
Seagull Stylist Kristin Sky Olsen is a downtown hair cutting specialist and is proficient with all hair types. From choppy layered bobs to precision cuts with bangs/fringe, Kristin dedicates her focus on the texture of her cuts to emphasize softness and movement. She perfects men’s styling, clipper cuts, and high-end barber skills with an eye for detail and smooth finishing work.
Kristin’s haircuts are informed by the luxury of head-turning styles and the panache that radiates from them. Preferring classic wearability to quickly changing trends Kristin keeps one, well-trained eye on New York City’s hallmark looks. Classic A-line Vidal Sassoon inspired bobs intertwined with a kind of Washington Square park bohemian sensibility shape her approach to her clientele. Her training takes into account each individual client’s hair growth pattern. Her techniques help tailor every one of her styles to perfectly complement bone structure, face shape, and all types of cuts. After arriving at a vision with her client, Kristin “draws” the haircut in her head first before she starts cutting. This allows the style to present itself organically to her as she works. Her cutting is at once intuitive and totally unique. In addition to flawless blowouts, she has an unparalleled talent for updos, event, and wedding hair. Weaving in details such as fishtail braids, loose chignons, and asymmetry, her styling is inventive, modern and totally fresh.
