Where it all began
Welcome! My name is Krystal Henry and I am the owner of The Key Salon. I have been working as a stylist for the past 12 years and have loved every moment. Before becoming a hairstylist, I was a model in New York City. I really enjoyed being behind the scenes and observing all the intricate styles. It was right before I left for New York to model that I met Dalbe Markman, the owner of AOC Salon, at a photoshoot. She was creating a beautiful updo on me for the Hampton Roads Bridal Magazine. I noticed her passion and love for the industry and came to the realization that I would love to be a part of the hair industry. I started my apprenticeship at AOC Salon in 2007 under Dalbe and worked there as a master stylist and salon educator until opening The Key Salon in 2020.
Since my journey at AOC, I have completed several courses to further enhance my specialty areas. I obtained a prestigious certification in Allion primary shapes and primary mechanics—a course centered around precision cutting and the diagraming of head sheets. The course gave me the ability to create uniquely precise hair shapes for each of my guests. I also specialize in creating “lived-in color”, making balayage and air touch highlights some of my go-to techniques. These are perfect options for individuals who want to achieve a modern style with little-to-no maintenance. Finally, I specialize in Hair Extensions and Hair Loss, which are perfect for adding in volume and thickness or even creating long mermaid locks. I am certified with Jz-Styles CO. in two different methods Beaded Row and Un-Seen installing four different weft types (Handtied, Co-z, Machine, and J-tied). I am also certified in Micro Point Solutions in two Methods (Micro Point Links and Micro Point Accents). These specialty services are geared for those with beginning stages of hair loss or having a fine/ medium hair texture. Using the most current and cutting-edge techniques, I can give women and men the hair of their dreams—hair that makes them feel both beautiful and confident.
