Owner, National Redken Artist, Master Stylist
Christina is a Chicago native who moved to Naples in 2015 with no clients and a dream to build an empire. With her big dream and 13+ years of experience in the hair and beauty industry, she is constantly in pursuit of growth and excellence. Now, a well known and respected salon owner and professional colorist, she has cornered the market in coloring blondes, with The House Of Blondes representing new age artistry in color corrections and hand painting techniques. With her contagious spirit, unwavering drive and attention to detail, her professional instincts and exceptional artistry skills merge to create transformative results.
Beyond the salon chair, Christina has trained with industry leading artists, such as brand ambassadors of Olaplex, to bring her clients the latest trends and techniques. In April 2016, Christina was inducted as the First National Redken Artist in Southwest Florida. Additionally, as a certified Redken colorist and balayage expert, her visionary color talents become a reality with custom color blends unique to each client. Beyond color services, Christina works with many hair extension lines to create fullness and/or length to accommodate all hair goals. Her extensive experience in coloring, cutting and styling hair extensions, is easily recognized in the look and feel of her client transformations.
Christina wouldn't have the continued success of her booming business, if it wasn't for her incredible team! Between her stylists and her assistants, it takes a dream team to accomplish serious #blondebombshell hair goals together! Beyond offering a home base for her team, she has designed a branded training program and apprenticeship for all incoming team members. Her dedication to providing continuing education and perfecting the latest techniques shows in the consistency of quality the staff executes to clients across the board. Additionally, Christina travels throughout Florida offering color technique classes and continuing education to outside Redken Artists. As she continues to build her dream, she looks forward to future expansion into a full-service salon with multiple locations across the country.
