Shine is the premier salon destination in the Montclair Village. We believe in having fun and being creative, while keeping an eye towards beauty and fashion.
Shine’s stylists are well versed in the latest cuts, styles and treatments that will help you feel beautiful and confident as soon as you step outside.
Shine the Hair Studio opened in 2009. Stylist and owner Kristen Byrd was inspired to create a space that was comfortable and fun, and where clients could feel pampered and relaxed.
Kristen Brill launched her beauty career more than 10 years ago. Over the past decade, Kristen has taken cutting and coloring classes at Redken, Scruples, L’Oréal, Sojourn, Framesi as well as in-depth product courses sponsored by Keratin Complex, Framesi and IT&LY.
Kristen’s fun and quirky spirit is evident the minute the doors at Shine open. At the same time, she takes great care in listening to her clients and bringing their ideas to life so, they leave feeling confident and beautiful.

“I want my clients to have fun and come out of Shine looking and feeling good. I like taking people out of their box and into a fresh look.”
