Kristin Surdam


I started working as a hairdresser at the age of 18. I first received my New York state cosmetology license and worked in New York before continuing on to get my Vermont cosmetology license. I have held both licenses for 13 years and still continue my education!
I absolutely love what I do. I love meeting new people and being able to express creativity in different ways. From cuts to colors and Foil highlights. Sheer jazz has given me the opportunity to continue my education while being able to come to work and enjoy being here every day.
