Chrissy’s Makeover

Chrissy was one of Christina's first Manhattan clients. She is a domestic violence survivor and in order to fully move on with her life, she needed to feel comfortable in her own skin. Her thin and damaged hair was an insecurity that she carried with her everywhere. For years she colored, straightened, blow dried, and curled it. And, until hearing about Christina, Chrissy suffered underneath her numerous wigs just to feel presentable. Christina's hair extensions gave Chrissy new life. After the makeover, she felt like a new woman and you could see it in her smile.

Renee’s Makeover

Renee, like Chrissy, struggled with severe insecurity because of her hair. Renee's hair is thinning and it kept her from feeling beautiful. It can be a challenge to install extensions into such thin hair because the new hair can be too heavy and end up pulling out more. But, Christina wanted to give Renee the look she always wanted and proceeded with an installment she knew would work for Renee's hair. After her makeover, Renee had a new lease on life! She felt confident that her physical appearance properly portrayed her inner beauty!

Jill’s Makeover

For Jill, short hair was not a choice. At only 31 years old she was diagnosed with breast cancer and her treatment caused her to lose her long locks. Even though she is healthy now and her hair has started the grow back, the short length is a constant reminder of her sickness. It took 14 entire bundles of hair but Christina helped Jill get back the long hair she had before the cancer. This was not just about confidence for Jill, it was about being able to move on with her life beyond the cancer. And once she looked at herself in the mirror for the first time with the extensions, she felt like her old self again.

A Twinning Hair Goddess Makeover

Christina took on her first set of twins with Annamarie and Ginamarie. These sisters have looked the same their entire lives! Same hair colors. Same hair styles. Finally, they were ready for a change. Ginamarie wanted to become a brunette and Annamarie wanted to go full blonde. With the color changes on top of extension installments, they got to discover their individuality for the first time. They always had their own personalities and interests but now their hair reflects it!

Kim’s Hair Goddess Makeover

Kim has been Christina's medium for years! Kim gave Christina a feeling of security through her readings. Now it was Christina's turn to give Kim a feeling of security through new voluminous hair. As a medium, Kim does a lot of shows. She wants to get on stage and feel good about her appearance, but her thinning hair always bothered her. Christina transformed her look by installing extensions for volume as opposed to their typical purpose for length. By the end of the makeover, Kim was proud of her new sexy hair and couldn't wait to get on stage next!
