Celebrity Stylist



Kristen White has always been destined for the spotlight. The celebrity mane pro competed in beauty pageants, winning Miss Black USA in 2008, before using her hair and makeup expertise and pageant connections to launch her own full-scale beauty company, Kristen White Imagery. Today, her clientele includes singer Dawn Richard and The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Kandi Burruss and Kenya Moore.

CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT: “Pageant girls are always looking for somebody to do their makeup. And people knew who I was from competing. It really set me up for what was eventually going to become my career path.”

WINNING CLIENTS: After her pageant days ended, White spent years training in L.A., N.Y.C., London and Paris before landing her first celebrity client, a Miss USA pageant contestant. Today, she works with fellow pageant winner Kenya Moore. “I love Kenya! She’s just been phenomenal to work with,” White shares.

LEARNING CURVE: “I tell all of my artists, this is more than just an appointment. It’s about an experience,” White explains. The celebrity hair pro offers this advice to aspiring celebrity stylists: “The industry is always changing. Continuing education is our lifeblood.”
