Christel Calaguas ~ The Hair-Game Changer

Christel’s first job was at a mall kiosk called ‘SOHO’ when hair feathers were all the rage. Learning how to style hair with accessories drove her curiosity, and that's when she knew she wanted to do hair. After graduating from cosmetology school in California, Christel started her career at TONI&GUY. Playing the game like few others, she began as the receptionist and worked her way straight into salon management. 


Christel prefers to stay outside her comfort zone – continuing her education and learning alongside her mentors. However, when her fiancé received a job promotion that required them to leave California for the Big D, she initially freaked out. The idea of leaving her family, clientele and salon community was an unexpected hurdle. Thanks to some quick thinking and a supportive network, she remembered a House of Collaboration Balayage Class she attended a couple years prior. Taught by our one-and-only, Katie Tellor, the two connected and Christel found her new home here at Abstra(kt)!


She thrives on being creative in her work and sources much of that inspiration from her clients. Sit in her chair, and your entire experience will flow seamlessly. Christel will answer your questions, educate you on all your options, and cater your cut and color to precisely suit your everyday routine. And when she’s done weaving her magic, one thing is certain: you’ll be smiling and raving over your gorgeous hair!
