Chrise obtained a Full Speciality Cosmetology license in 1990 at Atlantic Technical School in Broward County Florida. Chrise has worked with several different color lines such as Redken, Nexxus, Goldwell, and Matrix. She enjoyed working with Matrix so much she started training with Matrix and later became an Educational Artist in 2005. Although she loved teaching and traveling with Matrix, she resigned in 2007 due to the time it was taking away from her family.
Chrise continued to work behind the chair, building client retention while implementing the knowledge she obtained while working for Matrix.
Chrise’s passion for education did not stop completely after Matrix. Her love for hair has been the driving force to always want to learn about all aspects of hair, especially color. She has traveled the East Coast to attend classes, seminars, webinars, shows, and academies, with the most recent in NYC at the L’Oréal Academy for a 5 day Matrix Master Colorist program in November 2018. Some of Chrise’s latest Color creations(2019) have been Matrix featured and shared world wide on social media!
Not only does Chrise enjoy learning, she loves sharing knowledge with her team and educating her clients, as her future goal is to mentor and empower new stylists.
Chrise also found the time to obtain a Bachelors degree in Psychology with a minor in Neuroscience in 2011 at Stockton University. She was proudly inducted in the International Honor Society of Psychology(Psi Chi) in 2010.
In 2015 Chrise started to think about opening a salon. She wanted a salon with a team that worked together. A team that understood the importance of education as well as making guests a priority. A salon that adopted the most amazing positive work culture that guests and stylists could actually feel as soon as they walked through the doors.
In 2017 her plan all came together…Meraki!
I have been a client of Chrise’s for 18 years. She is a master of color technique! Her eye for creative haircut style is infectious. She is always on the cutting edge with new products or new ideas to encourage her clients who want a change! Salon Meraki is filled with a professional and energetic staff, which makes your appointment worthwhile.
