Hair Stylist Irene Arena was born in South Africa, lived in Italy, and visited places most travelers never see like Slovenia. Irene explained, “I was an educator and studied another level of hair styling. It was a wonderful experience!
In Europe, most women didn’t own a bottle of shampoo. The main beauty service was blow drying and they are the best blow dryers in the world. This was an incredible source of style in Europe. They pay attention to beauty, clothes and perfection.
As a trainer for an American company, I brought our techniques back to Europe.
In the United States, there is a tremendous amount of beauty everywhere but many women don’t have time to take care of their looks.
A hair style should create a balance with the shape of the face on the sides and on top. Some women want softness in their style.
The style should make the client happy to see herself in a beautiful way.
If a woman wanted a celebrities’ style or one from a photo, I would have a more exact idea about what she wanted.
I want to be sure the hair style fits the woman’s personality, lifestyle and what she is wearing.”
Irene enjoys telling her clients about her travels.
Cristophe’s Salon has some very interesting Colorists and Hair Stylists.
Colorist Kelly McGuire’s beautiful shade of red hair is called bright copper red. You won’t
miss Kelly when she enters a room!
Kelly explained her techniques, “I decide about the right color for my client’s hair by studying their skin tones. I don’t want the color to be drab, to weigh them down or look tired. The hair should be bright and healthy. Each client is different!
At Cristophe, we use hair coloring without harsh chemicals which won’t damage the hair. We don’t put anything on your hair that your hair can’t handle. Some people need tone and shine. We cater to individual hair types.
Some people’s hair needs vitamins and deep conditioning treatments to keep the color smooth and the hair soft.
The latest color for the fall is chocolate. You may like to eat chocolates and now you can wear it!”
Kelly is very knowledgeable because she previously assisted Cristophe Salon’s Master Stylist/ Education Director Eric Bensimon during his monthly visits to the salon as part of a training program about the latest in beauty, hair styles and color treatments. She enjoyed discussing colors and shared her ideas with Eric.
Born in Carson City, Nevada, Kelly was raised in Las Vegas and loves it here. She loves meeting celebrities and people from around the world at the Cristophe Salon.
