After nearly ten years of styling and two as the Artistic Director of the Maria Heckscher Salon in Atlanta, Christie was ready to plant her own creative roots in Nashville. "I had the amazing experience of working and traveling with the best in Atlanta...a very special group of people that not only shaped my career, but essentially became my family. When I knew I was ready to embrace my own project, Nashville really spoke to me. There are so many exciting things happening here, yet the tradition of southern comfort and hospitality remains strong. I wanted to make my own version of just that - a salon that reflects the intimacy of home, and yet, opens the imagination to new possibilities." She loves to work with scissors, creating expressive shapes. Technical cutting for more sculpted looks, to aggressive texture for soft, shaggy, romantic styles. Rich, multi dimensional color, as well as gray blending are among her favorites behind the chair. BOOK APPOINTMENT
