Crystal Olson


My passion is making Allure guests LOVE their hair. I believe color is my specialty but I couldn’t make it look great without an amazing cut and style to match. Whether it’s a few highlights or a complete 180 degrees from a beautiful blonde bombshell to an enticing energetic redhead; my goal is to keep my guests happy and never bored. Men’s cuts are becoming a favorite of mine also. There is nothing like a fresh cut on a man to keep him looking his best. After all, your best accessory is your hair!

As a professional, my education and experience has kept me excited about my future as a stylist. I have trained in New York at, Bumble and Bumble University, in Baltimore at the Goldwell Color center and my career started 11 years ago with Aveda at the Institute of Beauty and Wellness in Milwaukee. There is never a day that goes by that I don’t learn something new!
