More than just a hair stylist --Krystal Ben is a true "hair visionary". Krystal, better known as "Krissy", has always believed that all women are naturally beautiful. Just as she knew that some people were blessed with the gift of enhancing that beauty, and she happened to be one of them. From a very young age, Krissy discovered her talent for making women feel and look more beautiful...almost like a doll (in the words of her long-time clients).
It was the lack of viable opportunities for women of color in her home state of Flint, Michigan that drove her to become the change she wanted to see in her community. Krissy committed herself to developing and pursuing her true passion for beautiful hair. She successfully completed cosmetology training and quickly found employment as a licensed stylist at the local JC Penney Salon. In three years, she grew a large clientele and achieved Master Stylist status, solidifying her reputation as a true hair care professional. Despite her accomplishments, Krissy remained frustrated with the lack of diverse styling options and products available for women with different styling needs.
That is where her desire for creating beautiful, easy-to-maintain hair grew into a fetish. She began creating her own styles and techniques to help each client embrace their unique and natural beauty while promoting healthy, natural hair growth. From creating stylish and chic new cutting trends to developing a new weaving technique that layed super flat and flowed like natural hair, Krissy revolutionized the way women saw themselves. More and more, she received accolades from her clients who swore that she helped cultivate their inner doll.
In an effort to continue to grow and develop her skills, she relocated to Biloxi, Mississippi in October of 2012, and shortly after, introduced the Hair Fetish Virgin Hair Company. Dedicated to meeting the demands of clients with a deep passion for beautiful hair, she carefully selected only the best Virgin hair wefts, closures, and clip-ins from the most reputable vendors around the world, It wasn't long before her skills as a versatile Master Stylist and her high-quality Virgin Hair line began to make waves in and around the Gulf Coast area.
Krissy is the owner of Hair Fetish beauty bar Salon, Mississippi Gulf Coast Hair Show Winner, Fashion Show & Photo Shoot Stylist, as well as the founder and creator of the Hair Fetish Virgin Hair Company. However, she's a wife and Mom to 8 year old Taylor and 3-year-old Joy, she enjoys every opportunity she can to spend with her family.
"I don't think there is anything better than being able to make a woman feel and look her very best! From the level of service I give to every client - to the excellent products that we ship around the nation, the smiles I see on their face lets me know that I am doing exactly what I was created to do."
