Visionary entrepreneur, fashionista, hair color aficionado, artist and seriously successful stylist, best describes my business acumen. As a Master Colorist/Stylist and Salon owner I have spent over 25 years meticulously creating, transforming and educating women about how to become the best version of themselves. I believe a woman should never settle for mediocre style. Beauty is Art…. I listen, I create. Throughout my career, when not working in the salon, some of my best educational experiences have brought me to places like London, Paris and Rome in search of the latest fashion and beauty trends. Those experiences enable me to transform dramatic European styles into everyday “wearable hair” for the “woman on the go”. A new look doesn’t have to be extreme. A good stylist knows that most women have a comfort zone. Small changes in hair color, or simply modernizing a “classic bob” can make a significant impact. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all for change! So whatever it is you are looking for I am beyond excited to make your style vision come alive! Consultations are always complementary.

You may send me a quick text or call ….

First and foremost, the very best decision in over 30 years in this industry was to join this eclectic, incredibly creative and talented group of professionals gathered by fate at Beauty Collective! Like many, I found myself in a bit of a crossroads initiated by the pandemic. As Providence would have it my search coincided with the opportunity at BC!


I hope the following demonstrates my diverse work history and my passion for this industry.

While a senior Classical High School I attended night classes to accelerate the completion of my cosmetology license. In 1989, I successfully completed and passed the State Board of Cosmetology practical and written exams and started full steam ahead on my journey in this field. Starting as a Hairstylist, my career evolved into management and into a field of travel and stage work. As the only bi-lingual educator in the Tri-state area for Framesi, Inc. I was elected to be one of the 34 Premier Cutting Team Members out of 300 educators from around the nation. My passion has always been immersed in hair color and foiling techniques and that opportunity was everything I could have imagined. The move here has invigorated a long love of what we are able to provide our clients: an opportunity of self-care and self-love. How lucky are we?!


In full transparency I do have a full-time job away from my time at my salon, Studio 124. However, my role there allows for a lot of flexibility for you: Early morning, lunchtime, evening and weekends are when I am most accessible for your availability.


Whether you reach out to me or any of my partners at BC, know you will be received with excitement, joy and a true desire to help you escape the stresses of everyday life and into a space where you are the focus. Looking forward to meeting YOU!

Hello my name is Karen and I am the owner of Karen Chris. Since I was a child I was always artistic and I have been lucky to be able to channel that as both an artist and a stylist. 


I have been a stylist for 30+ years starting my education by not only attending hairdressing school but also being personally mentored by the owners of the beauty school with hands on training in their salon. 


To further refine my training I spent a year in Germany working for an inter-coiffure salon and a year and Belgravia London where my signature style and artistic methods were formed.  This time was spent performing out of house and in-house training, intense education at Goldwell Headquarters, as well as prepping models for universal photo shoots and Catwalk walk show at London Fashion Week. My experience with international clientele, my multinational colleagues, and a highly challenging work environment have earned me the title of “colorist”.

At this point in my career formulation of color is like breathing and I like nothing more than a challenge. Hair is like an art form, sculpting and color combined to produce your final image.


I also love to create art on canvas focusing on animals and the relationships with their people.
