Kristen Leanne

Model & Youtuber;
Founder, Arctic Fox
Kristen Leanne is a digital personality, model, fitness guru, and entrepreneur. After the success of her style-focused Facebook page, which now has over 2 million fans, Kristen launched her own YouTube channel in 2014 to showcase her love of outrageously colored hair and equally colorful makeup tutorials. Her channel has since amassed over 380K subscribers, and she enjoys frequently collaborating with larger brands such as Urban Decay, Hot Topic, NYX Cosmetics, Tarte Cosmetics, and more. Kristen has also built an online following on her personal Instagram (438K) where she shares her favorite beauty products and looks, in addition to her fitness Instagram full of tips and inspiration for living a healthy lifestyle.

On top of being a digital influencer, Kristen is an experienced entrepreneur, having owned her own businesses since she was 18 years old. Along with husband Ryan Morgan, Kristen started Arctic Fox Hair Color, a globally-recognized vegan and cruelty-free hair color line. A former model for Hot Topic, Kristen thought that it would be a perfect fit for Arctic Fox’s first retailer. A couple years later, Artic Fox is now the number one hair and beauty product across Hot Topic US and Canada in over 1000 retail locations. As a true animal lover and advocate for cruelty-free living, Kristen donates 15% of all profits from Arctic Fox to animal rescue 501(c)(3)s. The company currently sells 18 different colors, with many more colors and new products launching 2017.

Raised in San Diego, she currently resides in Carlsbad with her husband.
