My name is Kristin Martin. I am a North Carolina native who resides in Charlotte with my husband and our dog babies. We are also excited to be bringing a little human baby December this year! On the weekends (when not pregnant) you can usually find me riding bikes or walking our pups to the brewery. Food, wine, and travel are how I try to spend my free time whenever possible.
Hair is absolutely my passion. Providing inspiration and adding confidence are a couple of reasons why my work gives me joy. I love to make my clients shine! Also, when not behind the chair, educating and instructing other stylists in my expertise is undeniably fulfilling.
Having spent 15 years in the industry, I consider myself lucky to have found my niche in hair extensions. The ability to transform someone’s hair into their dream hair is the most fulfilling process. Part of that process includes coloring, which I take great pride in. Creating natural, lived-in blondes and rich brunettes is a specialty of mine.
I run my business out of Gl'amour Beauty Bar in Cornelius, NC. Gl'amour is the one stop spot for all your luxury hair and body needs. In January, I added an addition to Kristin Extended. I hired a fabulous stylist named Destyne. Check her out below!

My name is Destyne Cresong. I am originally from West Virginia but I have been in Charlotte area for around 6 years now. I love building a relationship with my clients and making friends that just happen to sit in my chair, as well.
I have been doing hair professionally now for 3 years, but I believe my love of doing hair began in high school when I would regularly dye my hair different colors. Doing creative, vivid color transformations will forever be one of my favorite things to do behind the chair.
After finishing cosmetology school, I immediately found a love for extension makeovers of all kinds, especially since I have been an extension wearer myself for years. I am certified in Habit Hand Tied Extensions and Babe Hair Extensions. The ability to give someone their dream hair, whether longer, fuller, brighter or darker is so satisfying and fun.
A few years ago I started going to Kristin for my hair extensions, then I actually took one of her extension classes. After that she begged me, for months, to come work with her. I finally gave in and it's been the best decision I ever made. Together, we strive for every guest to leave the salon feeling beautiful and pampered.
Now let’s give you the hair you’ve always wanted.
