Christen Barrs


Coach / Salon Owner 

Christen Barrs (@ChristenBarrs) is an experienced, dynamic hair extension specialist and coach who has been in the business since 2005. As the owner of Good Hair Collective and a coach for Destroy the Hairdresser, Christen loves bringing her passion for hair and human behavior together when helping students create beautiful businesses that support their lifestyles. With a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Education in Human Development and Consumer Studies, she has developed a unique perspective on how to build successful clientele while also allowing her to move between personal and professional life demands. Despite relocating every two years as a military wife, Christen was able to establish her salon in a new area, build a new clientele, hire employees, care for her husband through chemotherapy, and raise her son - no small task! She wants to work with individuals who are ready to take risks, push their boundaries, build sustainable businesses, and create futures that stand the test of time. Her tried and true strategies have enabled many stylists not only to expand their client base but add staff whose services free up time for the salon owner. If you're looking for someone to support you in building your dream career in the salon industry, Christen is ready to help you make those dreams a reality.

Book a discovery call

What students are saying:

"Before I started coaching I was working 40 hours a week and was so burned out I was ready to quit. I was so resentful of every client even though I was the one emotionally discounting them (of which they didn’t even know they were getting a discount). My friend came in for a haircut and told me that she had just started coaching with DTH. I immediately made a discovery call and signed up right away [with Christen]. Within days I switched to hourly pricing and now work 25 hour a week. In all of my 24 years of doing hair this last year has been the first time I have ever felt in control of my career and my future. I now charge $150 an hour and feel like my potential is endless!"
