Christina started playing with hair on a life sized Barbie head she got for her 5th birthday. Soon she was playing with and braiding yarn hair and then corn silk hair on Cabbage Patch dolls. From there, her love of the craft only blossomed. By the time she hit highschool, she was working on all her friends’ hair and already thinking about a career in the industry. A close relative owned a salon so when Christina would visit in the summers she began getting some first hand salon experience with blowouts and styling.
Straight out of highschool Christina went to the prestigious Ricci’s Academy in Connecticut (now a Toni and Guy School) graduating a year later top of her class at just 20 years old. Christina continued her education, always looking for new skills and advanced training while working at several top salons in the Northeast. In 2016 she moved to Arizona with a focus on starting her own business specializing in lash work and hair extensions.
Christina loves the transformational process of hair design. She delights in big changes and dynamic shapes from stacked bobs to sexy long layers. She also does precision mens grooming with the best of them! In the color department she specializes in classic, natural blended foiling and precise color matching. If you’re looking for a show stopping blow out or elegant updo, Christina will be a great fit for you!
Collaborative consultation is one of Christina’s greatest strengths. Having spent so many years in the industry she’s found that taking her time, being open to change, asking lots of questions and encouraging her guests to relax and dream is the way to perfect hair!
