Chris Russell

Chris Russell is a licensed cosmetologist in the state of Arizona. She started her career in Seattle in 1992. Deciding early to be a hair color specialist, she attended the Gene Juarez Academy and The Advanced Training Academy. As an intern and assistant to the owners at the prestigious Marketplace Salon & Spa in downtown Seattle, she honed her craft and learned from some of the best hairstylists in Seattle. Her training as a color specialist focused largely on corrective color theory and an advanced understanding of hair structure. She has been a color specialist for over 24 years and regularly attends advanced education classes.

Profiles by Chris is located inside the Tempe Salon Suites on the SE corner of Kyrene and Elliot in Tempe, AZ.

Much of our self-esteem is related to satisfaction with our appearance. Hair color is so closely tied to our sense of beauty and confidence that it is nearly impossible to sever the connection between the two. I feel that it is impossible to truly be a hair color specialist without an intimate knowledge of the hair structure itself.

I am blessed to work with people everyday who trust me to make changes to their appearance, large or small. I aim to provide the highest standards of service so my clients will return and recommend me to their friends and family.

She is not ONLY very good at what she does, but she keeps up with the latest technology and science, so she understands better than any other professional what is happening to you biologically, not just stylistically. She is the best professional in this field. March 2, 2015

Hands down, best salon experience I’ve had. Chris was funny & knowledgeable, and successfully corrected another salon’s color mistake without damaging my hair at all. I normally don’t have a good time sitting and getting my hair done, but over an hour flew by while we chatted. Her prices are SO reasonable and I left feeling much much happier with my hair. Finally found my stylist!! 🙂

By having a thorough consultation, I can very often pre-determine the best course of action that will save us both time and save you money. Please don’t hesitate to book a consultation with me if you have any questions.

Chris is the absolute best when it comes to hair… I have naturally dark brown hair, but had highlights done a few weeks ago that were brassy, yellow, and horribly placed. Chris listened to my concerns and looked at a few pictures I had for reference and just knocked everything OUT OF THE BALLPARK! My hair looks natural, healthy and has natural light brow highlights throughout. Ladies, you MUST go to Chris for your hair-coloring needs, she’s is an absolute ROCKSTAR! I am so fortunate to have her as a stylist! 🙂 March 22, 2015

Brazilian Blowout professional smoothing treatments are the most innovative and effective in the world.

The end result is smooth, healthy, frizz-free hair with radiant shine!

What makes Brazilian Blowout professional smoothing treatments different?
They are the ONLY Professional Smoothing Treatments that actually improve the health of the hair.

Entire in-salon treatment is completed in just 90 minutes!
No down time! The minute you leave the salon, you can wash and air dry your hair, workout, put your hair in a ponytail or clip and it will be smooth, frizz-free and radiant!

Results last up to 12 weeks.

Brazilian Blowout
The Brazilian Blowout changed my life! I have thick, coarse hair and have used a flatiron every day for years. Chris introduced me to the service and I am a now a changed girl with silky, straight and smooth hair! And what’s more, Chris’ prices rival a Groupon price so I don’t ever have to worry about being gouged! Thanks, Chris! July 15, 2015

I have done Brazilian Blowouts on my hair now for several years and for me, it is the best thing going. My hair is extremely wavy and frizzes with the slightest humidity. Chris does an amazing job, paying close attention to my hair during application. I can not imagine anyone not loving it! This is humid Vietnam with my beautifully straight hair, while my husband’s frizzed! Yay, Brazilian Blowout!!

Matter of trust

Matter Of Trust

Since its founding in 1998, Matter of Trust has collected donations of human hair and animal fur to clean up after the thousands of oil spills that happen each year. The hair and fur donations are made into mats and booms, which use old nylon stockings to keep clippings together. Each day, 300,000 pounds of hair and fur are cut in hair salons across the United States. Hair and fur was sent to Matter of Trust’s headquarters to be assembled into resources that helped clean up Louisiana waters following the recent Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Profiles’ Giving Back program was honored to be a part of the nationwide effort to aid the clean up process.
