My name is Kristin Dionne and I am the owner of Rad Hair Studio in (the heart of) beautiful Bellingham, WA.
I decided to relocate from the east coast a few years ago to enjoy the mountain lifestyle and more importantly to shred Mt. Baker!
Hairdressing is an awesome creative outlet for me. My initial love with the industry began when I was just a kid where my Momma put me to work in her salon that she owned and operated for over 40 years. You could say it’s in my blood. Here is a little backstory about my studio and how it came to be. I have been in the hair industry for over 18 years, I enjoyed and appreciated the 10+ years I spent behind the chair, assisting world-class stylists and then working as a master stylist in two high end salons. In order to have the freedom to align my business with my personal values, the next step was to open my own boutique-style salon. Here you will find only vegan, cruelty-free, and sustainable products. I’m also a green circle certified salon where most of the waste is recycled or reused.
My specialties are straight razor cutting, precision dry cutting, lived-in color, and coloring with an edge. I love messy, bedroomy, textured alternative styles – did I mention I’m obsessed with shags and bangs? Every design is artfully crafted for each guest and their unique lifestyle.
