After the birth of her son, she was inspired to do what she was truly passionate about and started up her business from scratch. She was driven by the fact that she had something to offer, and knew what her strong points were, and how to make it happen.
Christina’s talents were discovered early on…at the age of 16 she was signed by a professional Modeling Agency and was in NYC by the age of 18, meeting with Agents from all over the World, and shortly after working in Europe.
It was through this exposure and experiences that she learned she had a talent with doing Makeup, Hair and how to dress to see agents and being sent on bookings.
To sharpen her skill, she immersed herself in schools, courses and getting out into the industry and gaining experience anywhere she could.
Originally from the Ottawa Valley, if you grew up with Christina, you were definitely at her house getting your hair and make up done! Her friends will tell you that she has always loved makeup & was always the one dressed up.
She has a love and genuine interest in the Beauty, Fashion & Event industry, having grown up around it. Her Mom was known for throwing large scale parties, and her Father’s first job when moving to Canada from Greece was a tailor, so Networking & Fashion has always been in her blood.
Christina not only offers a service to her clients but consults with them. She takes pride in helping her clients achieve the look they desire. It’s not just about making her clients look great on the outside, it’s also about feeling good on the inside.
