We had the good fortune of connecting with Kristana Baisden and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kristana, we’d love to hear what makes you happy.
Giving back truly makes me the happiest. The feeling I get every time I’m able to make a contribution or help someone bring a mass amount of joy in my heart.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m a personal stylist. I love getting a good feel of my clients so I can help show some their personality in their clothing while also taking them out their comfort zone. I’m so proud that I took a leap of faith to do what I love the most. Honestly I’ve always done it but of of my closet childhood friend would always let me style her and everything I do with her I use it in my business. Also my first two real clients were like a trial error and they were so pleased with my work they manifested everything that’s happening with business right now. It was literally God’s plan. I’ve learned you can be kind and have a good heart but still maintaining being firm. That all women no matter what shape ,color, size, you are everywoman should make time to always look their absolute best. My story is doing my best to help/assist reveal their hidden glow through fashion while empowering them along the way.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
First thing first we would go get crawfish a bottle of wine. my two bestfriends live up north so when they come to Louisiana that’s exactly what they want first. we would definitely do a day full of luxury spa treatments. I mean we would get it all, facial, massage, etc. Later I would take them to tsunami so they can get the cute picture for IG. another day we would definitely go to a hole in the wall spot so we can lose without anybody judging us and act like we did in college. I would definitely have to take them to the blue store so they can get the best fried chicken in the world.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Two people My husband because he’s has pushed, motivated , and encouraged me for the past 8 years. Even when I gave up or didn’t believe in myself anymore he always would throw subliminals, make comments, or buy something to help show me my dreams were still obtainable. My childhood best friend Trenisha Henderson. She was literally one of the first people I started styling. Every time I styled her it truly prepared me for my Buisness. I would create the vision, pick out the look, go on set with her, tell her how to pose, how to wear makeup, etc. through all of that she would always tell me how good I was and I should take it further. She would even offer to pay me but I just wouldn’t accept it. For so many years she don’t even realize but she’s was just manifesting and speaking life over me ,& for that I’m so grateful for her.
