Christine believes almost every woman should have depth and dimension to their hair and highlights and lowlights often are used to achieve that to get rid of mono-chromatic hair. They’re uniquely placed and colored to bring out your skin tone and eye color and will help brighten up what should be brightened up and tone down what should be toned down. Shine, condition and texture are just a few other things these beautiful highlights and lowlights will help your hair achieve.
Creating updos and styles has become another one of Christine’s favorite things to do. Being trained by the TIGI academy, as well as learning Martin Parson’s styling techniques have helped her to learn different styles and design.

In 2009 Christine starting testing out all of the different types of Keratin Treatments. She has come to love a few certain brands, but her favorite has turned out to be the CHI Enviro American Treatment. It eliminates up to 95% of frizz while making curly hair more manageable. It is also a safe alternative to traditional harsh straightening systems, infusing the hair with a unique formula of amino acids, proteins, silk and pearl into the hair cuticle. It has proved to her to be the most gentle and safe system out there.
