Christen Barrs


Coach / Salon Owner 

Christen (@ChristenBarrs) began her career in 2005 as one of the first extension specialists in Utah. She has since taken her career around the world, including Japan. She currently resides in Maryland and is the salon owner of Good Hair Collective.  As a military spouse that moves every 18 months, Christen has learned how to adapt her career and quickly rebuild a clientele at a rapid rate with each move.

Christen has always had a passion for hair and education; she received her Masters of Education in 2012. She loves helping stylists dive deep, identify their areas for growth, overcome obstacles, and achieve their goals. She believes that stylists can create a career they enjoy and have a personal life they love even more with the right tools and determination.

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 the 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!

Thank you Christen for your effervescent energy! After the pandemic, I found myself spinning out of control of my business. Everything was changing, and I knew I needed to change, but didn’t know how to implement all the great things I heard on the DTH podcast. I needed help, and Christen Barrs came to my rescue! She has been coaching me on boundaries and business skills and helping me raise my prices. I am learning things that have benefited my entire life and relationships, not just my career. Thank you Christen Barrs!
