Kirstene Hair was born in Brechin, Angus, and was raised among a large farming family. She studied at the University of Aberdeen from 2007—201 1 , graduating with a degree in politics.  She was previously the Conservative candidate for Angus South in the 2016 Scottish Parliament election, being defeated by incumbent Scottish National Party MSP Graeme Dey, with an increased share of the vote (+15.3%) for the Conservatives. Prior to her election as an MP, Kirstene worked for publishers DC Thomson.

Kirstene was elected to the House of Commons in 2017, overturning a large majority of over 11,000 to unseat the SNP’s chief whip Mike Weir in a sequence of seat gains for the Scottish Conservatives.  Hair is the first Conservative Party representative for the area since 1987, and sits as one of the youngest MPs in Parliament.

In September 2017, Kirstene revealed that she had not voted in the June 2016 referendum on Brexit because the choice was “very difficult”. She added that “I just ultimately couldn’t make that decision and I thought I would therefore go with the will of the UK which if I’m honest I thought we would remain”.
