With more than 500,000 Instagram followers, her own line of hair products at Target, and a client list including regulars Lauren Conrad, Lucy Hale, and Jenna Dewan Tatum, hairstylist Kristin Ess is nothing short of killing it. Ess is often recognized as the stylist to Conrad, whom she started working with when she had a chair at the (now closed) Warren-Tricomi in West Hollywood. In fact, you might remember seeing her on some episodes of The Hills. But before setting up shop at celebrity-frequented salons around Los Angeles, including Chris McMillan, Ess started out her hairstyling career at home. At age eight. When she started cutting her own hair and her sister’s and did a such a good job her mom couldn’t even be mad about it.

We learned a lot more about the famous redhead stylist, including her knack for decorating her four-story Kristin Ess Hair headquarters in Los Angeles, which is complete with a private salon on the bottom floor and basically a living Instagram you can walk through. Click through below to see it all and read about her first-ever celebrity client.

“I started cutting my siblings’ hair when I was nine, and the first one was my little sister. I chopped her hair off, and I remember my mom wanting to be mad, but it looked really good, so she couldn’t.”
