Ris started her hairstyling career in Seattle in 2002. Following beauty school, she completed a 2 year apprenticeship in Seattle. Since then she has furthered her education by participating in color and cut intensive courses in cities including New York, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Paris.
Ris is skilled in performing all types of color but specializes in Balayage. She is also passionate about women’s short hair cuts. She enjoys the sculptural aspects, whether the cut is soft and textured, disconnected and edgy, or simple and classic. She states,
“I think it is confident, bold and beautiful when a woman where’s her hair short.”
When she is not working, Ris is trying get out of the city. She loves running, surfing, traveling, cooking, listening to music, and chilling in hammocks.
