About Christina

Christina just didn’t decide one day to become a Beauty Expert, you could safely say it was written in the stars for her all along. 

Originally from the Ottawa Valley, if you grew up with Christina, you were asking her to help with your Make up + Hair. Her friends and anyone that knows her will tell you how clear and evident her passions are when it comes to Beauty + Style. But for Christina, it’s more than that. She knows that beauty from within, only amplifies the beauty on the outside. 

By 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. She learned early on, she had a natural eye for what to wear, and how to apply Makeup. When she would attend ‘go-sees’ with agents, she always showed up looking professional with a model bag in tow, ready for anything. As her Modelling career developed, so did her love for Makeup and Style.

Her road to becoming a Professional Hair + Makeup Artist and Stylist, while unconventional, she will tell you there is no better education to become an Expert, than actual experience and hours performing your craft. And she certainly did that. 
A visual Artist who can see a photo, and duplicate anything, has mastered timeless, stylish, natural and glam beauty. 

When she shows up for work, till the time she leaves, you will feel her energy. She carries her zest for life, appreciation and tenacity with her always. 

Doing Makeup, Hair and Styling, she’ll tell you will never get old for her…and it’s clear because her passion for Beauty + Style, doesn’t end there.
