Meet Kristal Henderson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kristal Henderson.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I started doing hair when I was 16. My grandmother & mother did hair and that’s what inspired me. After graduation, I went into the Army and had other jobs after that. I was very unhappy & I felt like I wasn’t living in my purpose. Three years ago, I quit my job and went to cosmetology school. Around that time, my mother passed away and I was lost. I put schooling on the back burner but in the back of my head, I could hear her voice telling me to do what I love. So, from that point forward, I started putting 100% into my business as well as my craft.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It definitely hasn’t been a smooth road. Being a mother & a businesswoman comes with a lot. Your job is never done.

One of the struggles would have to be building clientele. There’s a difference between a client & a customer. A customer ships around for the best price. A client wants longevity & is loyal.

Please tell us about Beauty By Kris.
Beauty By Kris specializes in “All things beauty”. I’m a hairstylist, wig maker, makeup artist & I’m currently learning the ins & outs of photography.

I’m known for being a “therapist”. My clients love that they can come sit in my chair and leave feeling refreshed, happy and beautiful.

I’m extremely proud of my growth as a businesswoman.

What sets me apart from others is my passion. I have the ability to make others not only look beautiful but feel beautiful as well. I’m a firm believer in inner beauty.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Every Sunday, my mom would take my siblings & I to play softball. She was a single parent and worked three jobs but she still made time to do something with us. Which is why I stopped working on Sundays. Family time is important to me.
