Crystal

Hi, my name is Crystal and I love all things hair.  I specialise in Natural Hair, Weaves & Extensions, Creative Colour on Weaves & Styling as well as Relaxing and Styling Services.

I’m currently available for appointments on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.  To book an appointment with me, please call 020 8345 5621

Here’s a bit more about me…Look forward to meeting you soon

What Made You Choose Hairdressing as a Career?
From a young age I knew I was creative rather than academic and I wanted to do Drama, but my mum insisted I did Health & Social Care, which I started but really didn’t enjoy it.  I really didn’t feel it was for me.  One day a friend was going for an interview at a local hairdressing salon and I decided to go along with her.  To my surprise, I was also offered a job and I haven’t looked back since.  I love doing hair, I love meeting new people and I love the industry.  My dream is to one day open a Hairdressing Training Academy and to inspire other young people into the industry.

Who’s Hair Would You Most Like To Style & why?  
I’m a typical hairdresser, and I’m always looking at people’s hair and picturing in my mind how I could create a new look or figuring out what style would suit them better.  I enjoy making my clients feel happy about themselves

How Do You Describe Your Sense of Style?  
I would say uncomplicated, classy and natural

What makes you laugh?   
I can laugh at most things.  I even make myself laugh sometimes:)

Which Type of Hairstyles Do You Absolutely Love to Create?   
I would love to say am a fashionista but unfortunately that would be untrue! I am still working on my style. I normally just throw things together – it seems to be working at the moment. However, in terms of my hairstyles they are always big and a bit avant garde, I love red hair – not too bright, more of a burgundy colour.

Who Do You Most Admire and Why?   
The one person I find myself watching and listening to on a regular basis is Judge Lynn Toler, an American Lawyer who also talks a lot about relationships and empowering young people.  I find her to be honest and motivational 

What Qualifications Do You Have Or Are Currently Working Towards?   
I have NVQ Level 2 and Level 3 in Hairdressing from Newham College.  I also did a short course in Weave Installation and Wig Making.  In the future, I would love to pursue a teaching qualification.

Have you won any awards?  
I have won a couple of awards whilst I was training at Newham College.  However, I feel that at Afrotherapy, I’m now in a salon where I can explore my creativity and would love to compete for Natural Hair, Weave, Bridal and Avant-Garde.

  • Customer Service Award, Newham College

Michelle
I decided to visit Afrotherapy because the operating hours on Thursday is until 8:00pm. This was convenient for me because of my work hours. My first impression was that I was in a professional environment. I was given a questionnaire to determine what products I use and my daily routine and given advise that I thought was professional. I had a Mizani relaxer and haircut because I had damaged ends. The end result was WOW! My dry, flyaway hair was now glossy, sleek and had movement. My stylist was Chris and I am now devoted to her for life.
Sharon
Lovely friendly atmosphere, and Chris always looks after my hair so well
Robin Greene
My visit was wonderful. Crystal was my stylist. She took the time to consult with me and explain everything. She showed me how to care for my hair and recommended products. She did a wonderful job with my relaxer and cut. As I told her, if I could, she'd have a new regular client. I was very please with the entire experience. They also gt me in and out on time. Would recommend to anyone.
