Keep reading to learn more about Lee Krislov.  

How long have you been a colorist/stylist and what are some of your goals? 
For 25 years. My main goal has always been to be a part of a team of people who love to do hair like I love it. 

Do you have a favorite hairstylist that you admire and look up to?
Yes, I have been fortunate to work with some of the best people in the industry. I have to say though, working with Anthony Moscolo of Toni & Guy in LONDON was my best experience.

If you could work with anyone, who would it be? 
I feel that working with the staff here [at Byuti Salon] and Natashia is where I want to be.

Are there any lessons you learned being in the industry? 
What I have learned is that even though I may have a lot of experience, there is always room to grow.

What advice do you have for aspiring colorists/stylists? 
The advice I always give is to never stop going to classes and [continue your] education.

Tell us a little bit about your favorite looks that are easy to style for those on the go.
What I think will be next trend for easy hair will be a shift back to the classics, like bobs wedges, one length looks with bangs and the return of short hair.

What are some tricks/tips to help hair stay healthier longer?
I would suggest using Pureology that is best for your hair needs and we also have our own essential blenders conditioning line where we use a Japanese Micro mist machine and we make a blend for your scalp and hair needs. We only provide this in the salon.

When it comes to hair, are there any common mistakes you see that girls and guys should avoid?
I would have to say a good shampoo and conditioner. Men have a tendency to ignore conditioner and women normally don't use the right one for their hair type.

What is the easiest/quickest way to transform a day look into an outgoing nightlife look?
The easiest for a woman with long hair is to put it in a chignon by taking the long hair into ponytail wrapping the hair around the ponytail and taking 2 to 3 bobby pins and pining it in. Pull a few pieces down around the face and around the nape. You can use a flat iron or a round one on the pieces that you pull down.

What are some cost-effective hair & beauty regimens that can be done at home?
I would recommend the Pureology hair masque for your hair type [for those] in need of some TLC.It is the best home remedy there is.

How can people get in contact with you? 
They can reach me at Byu-Ti Brentwood 888.99.byuti Lee Krislov.

Is there anything else you'd like to add? 
I would like to say that we are the most attentive to your scalp and hair when it comes to the condition of it. We also are the most involved when it comes to education for a smaller private company. We are the west coast flagship for Pureology and are Redken educators.

Summer Survival: Pick the Most Breathable Fabrics

Summer is inching closer, and while we're all psyched for the perpetually warm weather ahead after a tough winter, pretty soon it's inevitable that the heat, humidity and summer sun will leave us feeling, well, less than fresh.

Chrissy Volk, wardrobe consultant for Adahlia Volk has put together a cheat-sheet for navigating through the best, most breatheable fabrics for the season. Who ever looks at clothing "ingredient" listings on the tag - well, this season think of it as your guide to "cool."


COTTON + STRETCH = CUTE BUTT: Cotton jeans are the lightest for summer because they are airy and breathable, however, jeans with a small content of stretch are the most flattering. They will move with your body and it’s movements.BEST DENIM BLENDS: Chrissy suggests denim with a high cotton content, and small synthetic content. A jean with either a 98% cotton/2% lycra or 96 % cotton/4% Lycra fabric, is a good combination. J…
