Christal Mercier, owner of Hair by Christal and founder of Hair Dreams by Christal, Inc., is no stranger to innovation and hard work. Born in Houston’s historic third ward into a family of 12 siblings, Christal quickly learned to stand out from a crowd and establish a sense of individuality. By the age of 12, she had already developed an entrepreneurial spirit by earning extra money styling hair for others, not knowing that her talent would lead to a life-long career.
Christal opened the doors of Hair by Christal in Missouri City, Texas, in 1990. Her natural talents, business savvy, and hearts’ desire seamlessly flourished into a thriving business. However, in April 2008, Hair Dreams by Christal, Inc. was established in honor of her sister Timothy McDade. During Hurricane Harvey, Christal started the Gallery of Salons rescue team that cut, styled, and braided hair for those who were displaced by the storm.
Recently, Christal started a hair loss support group that provides a safe place for attendees to express their feelings associated with their hair loss and not be judged. The group follows the motto, and details can be found in her link below. Today, Hair by Christal is an iconic salon known for its innovative braiding, weaving, extensions, and hair replacement systems with a clientele spanning across the United States. Finally, Christal believes that each opportunity to play a role in helping someone discover their beauty is the true essence of a stylist’s work.
