She loves seeing the natural flow of the hair and working with it to give you a cut that best suit you and your every day life!
Always knowing that she would get into hair, after working with animals, Kristina graduated in 2010 at the top of her class. Working in a high end salon and attending education and hair shows, she felt it was time to open her unique studio in 2014.
As most would agree, Kristina loves making people feel confident and comfortable when walking out the door. Helping people’s beauty shine not only on the outside, but the inside too.
Coming from a background of health care, and a seasonal sport fishing guide in Haida Gwaii; Nikki has always had a passion for working with people. In 2009 she graduated from the Academy of Excellence and dove head first into her new love of the hair industry.
Nikki Moved to the island in 2012 from Ladner BC. After moving with her family to Sooke this past summer, she decided to fully embrace the local life and join the team at Rustic Roots.
Nikki loves all things hair, but blended blondes are her niche. She is dedicated to excelling in her craft and most importantly, strives to have her clients smiling and feeling beautiful and comfortable from the minute they sit in her chair.

of work with her beloved companions, Wasco and Rocha. Her
favourite day of the week is pizza Sunday (or family day)
