Kristen Kohl - Owner
In July 1997, Kristen Kohl purchased her mother’s eight station hair salon in Suntree. She had a vision to create a ten thousand square foot salon and spa. The concept was to offer nails, body massage, skin care, waxing, make-up, and hair services, including a beautiful boutique featuring after care products and the latest fashion trends, which came to fruition in July of 2000.
In 2010 Imperial Salon and Spa beachside located in Indian Harbour Beach was established. This tranquil and modern salon and spa was designed with relaxation in mind to service our beachside guests.
“I believe in furthering your education but it starts with a strong foundation”, states Ms. Kohl. In 2011 The Salon Professional Academy-Melbourne was established located in the Melbourne Square Mall. This state of the art, diamond designated academy, certified by Redken, offers programs in cosmetology, barbering, massage therapy, skin and nail care certification. It is a fully accredited school that offers financial aid and accepts Florida pre-paid, VA benefits/GI Bill, and bright future scholarships. She is proud to announce her second location The Salon Professional Academy-Delray Beach, which opened this year.
“Find your passion, which is your most important responsibility. Once you do, be diligent, forthright, and focused. It’s called living in your purpose…the sweet spot!!!” -Kristen Kohl
