Updated: 5 days ago

Welcome back to another episode of Stylist Soul Tribe Conversations! I'm your host, Lisa Huff. In today’s episode, we’re diving deep into a transformative journey of personal and professional growth with Krisa Warren, a dedicated hairstylist and savvy business owner with over two decades of experience. Join us as Krisa shares her insights on achieving success, the power of strategic financial management, and the personal transformations that have shaped her career.


Krisa’s Professional Journey

Krisa's career in hairstyling began over 23 years ago after she graduated from beauty school in 2000. Her professional path took her from Milwaukee to Madison, where she navigated the challenges of the beauty industry, including working in less-than-ideal salon environments. This experience fueled her determination to create her own space, leading to the opening of Chloe's Hair Studio in 2010. Krisa’s story is a testament to the power of resilience and the pursuit of a vision that aligns with one’s values and lifestyle.


Embracing Financial Acumen

A significant part of Krisa’s success story is her strategic approach to financial management. Recognizing the importance of financial stability, Krisa adopted the Profit First methodology, which involves creating multiple bank accounts for different business needs to ensure better financial control. This system helped her not only to manage her finances more effectively but also to plan for future expenses, including her salon rent, which she pays annually in advance.


Personal Growth and Transformation

Beyond her professional achievements, Krisa has undergone significant personal transformations that have impacted her life and work. Notably, her decision to undergo gastric bypass surgery was a pivotal moment, contributing to her physical and mental well-being. This change has allowed her to be more present both at home as a mother and at work as a business owner.


Future Aspirations and Advice

Looking ahead, Krisa is excited about the next steps in her business, which include hiring an assistant to help manage her growing client base and further streamline her operations. Her journey is a powerful reminder of the importance of setting clear goals and breaking them down into achievable steps.



Krisa Warren’s journey is inspiring for anyone looking to navigate the complexities of personal and professional growth. Her story encourages us to embrace change, plan strategically, and always strive for a balance that honors our personal and professional commitments.
