Kristi Bennett

Owner/Level 4A Stylist

Upon opening her quaint salon off the historic downtown square in Denton in 2001, Kristi’s career began to flourish as a stylist. She constantly learned new techniques in hair cutting and became certified in three different methods of hair extensions including Hairdreams, Cinderella and Perfectress. But ultimately it was her keen understanding of hair color and techniques that kept her in high demand with her clients. As her clientele grew, so did her knowledge of wanting to share her passion with other hairdressers. Opening a new, more expansive salon in which she could train stylists was only a natural progression in her career as a salon owner. In 2008 she built HeadRush the Salon in the heart of downtown Denton. Her love of the hair industry was the motivation to step away from the individuality of a booth rent salon and focus more on a team experience for herself and her staff. Even though she still loves to work behind the chair, hiring new talent hairdressers and mentoring them through their exciting journey is the most rewarding part of her career.

"I have been very blessed to have built a team of such talented hairdressers. They are amazing human beings as well who love to give back to the community. I thrive off the constant desire for knowledge we all share regarding hairdressing. The respect we have for each other, our guests and our industry is apparent in our salon atmosphere. This is why HeadRush the Salon is my haven for good times and great hair."
