A Chicago native, Christa is a gifted artist with the talents and creativity of transforming beauty beyond the obvious.

 

Prior to becoming a Makeup Artist/Esthetician, Christa spent years traveling from LA to New York as a singer/songwriter with the Still Waterz duo-group. It was during her travels as a performer that she discovered her natural talents and love for makeup artistry. "As a new group starting out we couldn't afford a makeup artist, so I did all our makeup. I even came to the rescue of a few family members and friends for special occasions...and that's how it all began."

 

Christa recently married the love of her life Kenneth Hill, and has two beautiful children who are her everything. She juggles to maintain a happy home-life for both her husband and children while taking every opportunity to establish herself in the beauty industry she so passionately loves.

 

Since beginning her journey 14 years ago, Christa has had an undeniable presence in the industry. She has worked with Brides Noir Magazine, Taste Cincinnati Magazine, Iman Cosmetics, Smashbox Cosmetics and Chicago's WGN-TV, just to name a few.

 

Christa took her love for the beauty industry one step further when she enrolled in the Skin Academy at Paul Mitchell in 2010, where she studied and completed the Esthetics program later receiving her license in the State of Illinois.. "I wanted to be as knowledgeable as I could when it came to skin, and attending Paul Mitchell was a natural progression."

 

Since graduating Christa fullfilled yet another one of her goals when she accepted a position as an Esthetician at The Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa located on Chicago's Magnificent Mile. While at the Red Door Christa received invaluable training that has enhanced the quality of service that she gives to each of her clients.

 

"Beauty by Christa," was created out of a passion for beauty and the true belief that beauty exists in every individual.
