Kirsten “Kiki” Evans kiki@plumorganicbeauty.com image1-WEB

Stylist | Organic Colorist • Hair Cutter

Kiki’s passion for doing hair sparked in The City of Brotherly Love. She was inspired by the broad spectrums of fashion and personal styles in Philadelphia. Graduating from the distinguished Jean Madeline Aveda Institute, Kiki already had over 5 years assisting experience, one of the salons being the first organically based salon in Philadelphia, Juju Salon & Organics. Working at Juju was an epiphany for Kiki; she decided to pursue a career exclusively in an organic environment.

Being new to the world of organic beauty, Kiki took as many educational classes and workshops as possible. She became well-versed in over fourteen organic product and color lines, discovering her deep rooted passion and dedication to executing her skills with quality organic products. Wanting to further her career, she leapt at the chance to open a new organic salon with four of her fellow stylists. Helping build a new salon from the ground up was a challenge Kiki embraced, and being part of the Lunarosa Salon family allowed her to grow significantly as a stylist, sharing her light and love for the industry and mother earth.

Having fallen in love with San Francisco while visiting a friend, and craving growth in a place that would offer her new experiences, Kiki packed up her car and drove across country. Her ten year journey was to be continued in the bay area. Kiki’s work is very much about tailoring her skills to suit her clients personal aesthetic, while celebrating self love, self care and self expression… and what better place to do that than in San Francisco!
