KRISTEN

CEO/Colorist & Extension Artist

I'm MOST KNOWN FOR...

Creating timeless looks that result in a lifetime of healthy hair. Adding in one row of extensions is one of my favorite ways to create your dream hair as they are low maintenance, allow for easier styling at home, and can allow you to have highlights without altering your natural hair dramatically. I absolutely love creating all natural looking colors however, I love creating dimensional brunettes and reds most of all! I also specialize in razor cuts and dry haircutting. In the chair I love to educate you on the best hair maintenance practices based on your lifestyle. Instead of following trends I empower my clients to make changes to their hair that gives them the confidence to start their own trends.

I'm MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT...

Empowering you to chase your dreams, take action, and have the knowledge to look incredible while doing it! I love seeing my clients open their own business or request the promotion they deserve and make life changing decisions for a better work life balance. 

Kristen is nothing short of amazing! Every time I have come in, she does a thorough consultation with me beforehand. Even when I struggle to express what I want for my hair, Kristen delivers on exactly what I was envisioning. One of the most important things to me was having my hair look good so I didn’t need to come as often. Im at four months since Kristen did my hair and it still looks as good as the day I had it done. I receive compliments all the time on my hair and most of all, it is exactly what I asked for and she designed it to fit me and my lifestyle. Kristen is so talented, wonderful, thorough and such a kind soul. She’s truly the best! -Kelsey B

Had a great experience with Kristen! She really listens and takes the time to understand what you want for your hair and what sort of cut/color works with your lifestyle. I really felt like I was working with an expert, and I got so many compliments on my new hair! -Elizabeth S

I LOVE MY HAIR! I asked for a blended, lived-in look and that is exactly what Kristen delivered. My hair feels incredibly soft and the products she uses smell amazingggg. I’m also pretty sure I fell asleep during the scalp massage with a warm towel on my neck. -Shannon S

Finding beauty in both subtle and bold changes. I really enjoy doing soft dimensional coloring and lived in natural looks as well as bold reds and coppers, blonding, cutting and big transformations. I strive to create a relaxing, positive experience. Coming into the salon is like a little break from the world.

 

People always say " Wow, you're so gentle!" yes I am the gentle hairstylist, I have always been really gentle with my clients. I like to create an experience that is calm and relaxing. I'm also a great listener! I'm an introvert at heart and have always been good at paying attention to the little details.

AMANDA

Colorist

text 618-567-7877

I'm MOST KNOWN FOR...

My creativeness and transformations. I nerd out and LOVE a good color correction but creating lived in color just gets better and better. I love blonding, creating high or soft contrast. Most of the time I’m mixing up several color bowls to create a flawless flow of dimension. My clients trust me enough to create a color and cut that is going to fit their face shape, skin tone, and lifestyle.

I'm MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT...

Making you feel confident with your hair and not always doing what is “trending.” I want to create a look that represents YOU. You don’t blow-dry or curl? Ok then let’s get the right color and cut for that. You are someone that will be in the salon frequently and style your hair everyday? Awesome, I got you. A lot of times I have people come to me saying they left their stylist because they were doing what THEY wanted not what YOU wanted. I promise to never be that person!


Amanda is the best stylist in St. Louis! I have been going to her for 5 years and she has never disappointed. I've referred several friends to her and they are equally as pleased with her work. She is honest about what will/won't look good on you and is always up on the latest techniques. Beyond pleased with her service and salon! -Casey L

Amanda is amazing! She is great at what she does and fun to chat with in the process! Win win! -Megan H

Amanda is truly the best stylist I have ever had. She listens to your requests and sees the vision you have! -Janelle M

Whether you need a glass of wine to unwind from your day, a good laugh or maybe you just want to enjoy the silence, I’m your girl! Anything goes when you sit in my chair.

I'm MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT...

How fabulous a hair appointment can make you feel. Having good hair brings so many positive feelings. I love the confidence it brings the ladies that sit in my chair. It’s a powerful experience and it’s not just about the “Hair” for me.  

I have been getting incredible haircuts, glazes, and Brazilian Blowouts from stylist Kelsey for years, and I cannot recommend her highly enough! She always listens and creates exactly what I want, but she also offers her expert opinion and guidance. I can honestly say I always walk out of the salon feeling incredible about my hair, and that feeling doesn't fade when I start styling it myself either. She's also so sweet and friendly, and time just flies by while I'm in her chair. I recommend her to my friends and family all the time. I truly can't say enough good things about Kelsey and the whole team at Thirteenth and Washington! -Amanda W

Kelsey did a fantastic job! She was very knowledgeable and helpfully guided me through the color change. Love it! -Carey K

I have had the pleasure of entrusting my hair to Madison DaCruz, and let me just say, she is an absolute gem! From the very first appointment, Madison consistently exceeded my expectations and left me feeling like a million bucks every time I left her salon. Her talent and expertise in hair coloring are unparalleled, and I have received endless compliments on my hair color, even weeks after my appointment. Madison's mastery of color is truly impressive. She takes the time to understand my preferences and matches my desired look flawlessly, ensuring the end result is precisely what I envision. What sets Madison apart from other hair stylists is not just her skill, but also her warm and friendly personality. Visiting her for a hair appointment feels like catching up with an old friend. She creates a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, making the entire experience enjoyable.

Nina is the consummate professional. She takes her time to talk through a plan and executes with perfection. She is the only stylist I have been to that serves one client at a time thus giving her total attention. She has helped me to refresh my color to a more flattering shade and her cuts work for my curly hair when I blow it out or let it do its thing. Nina’s service is exemplary. -Andrea

I have been going to Nina for I think about 5 years now, and I love having her as my hair stylist! She takes her job very seriously and has a lot of knowledge about all hair types, color theory, and keeping hair protected and healthy.  She never rushes through my appointments, even if it's just a haircut. I really appreciate being able to feel like I don't have to worry about the hands my hair is in while she is my stylist. I can't recommend her enough! -Kayla

Nina is wonderful and very talented! Very laid back and kind … super helpful in asking questions and making suggestions to get desired results. She takes her time with precision cuts and is more than worth her rate - which I find very reasonable given many past experiences in Chicago and Dallas. So happy to have found her! -Rose
