Today we’d like to introduce you to Kristopher Osuna.
Kristopher, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I didn’t always plan to do hair. I quickly gravitated toward retail as I knew I wanted to do something involving people. After years of working in retail, I stumbled upon skincare & cosmetics. I had found my nitch! Being able to be creative with peoples faces inspired me to take the next step, hair!!!! I have been doing hair for about seven years & makeup for twenty years.
I am absolutely in LOVE with the industry. I am ever evolving & changing. After graduating from a Vidal Sassoon connection school certifying in Vidal Sassoon Art of Cutting & The ABC’s of Coloring, I was like a kid in a candy store! Soaking up knowledge while drawing inspiration in art, music & even architecture. In 2012, I launched Perfection Artistry.
Over the past six years, I have worked hard to make Perfection Artistry into the brand it is today. My work has been in many publications across the world as well as being involved in many fashions shows in both Phoenix & Tucson. This is my true passion; this is my life!
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
When I look back at the big picture of my career, I can honestly say it was a fairly smooth road. I worked extremely hard, sometimes seven days a week for the first two years. My only real “struggle” was myself. I know a lot of us out there to struggle with self-doubt & humility. It was definitely a life lesson as well as a career lesson to learn “ I am good enough & I do deserve this!”
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Perfection Artistry – what should we know?
My business caters to anyone who wants to feel special. I provide makeup & hair for brides, photo shoots, runway shows or any special occasion! I also provide all salon services for hair including color, extensions & cutting.
I would say, I’m “known” for two things, my fantasy hair coloring & my Avant-garde makeup & hairstyling. I would have to say, I’m most proud of my commitment & reliability. I’ve been told my sense of humor & my “do whatever it takes” attitude are what set me apart.
Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
I’ve had some many amazing people help me on my journey. I would definitely have to give credit to a few photographers. Without their trust & help, I wouldn’t be where I am! Neil Peters, Dave Kelley & of course Paul Davis just to name a few.
The biggest credit goes to my mama though. She has been through all my ups, downs & all the in-betweens.
