Christina Guerra’s love of beauty and flair for the artistic showed itself at an early age while growing up in Hawaii. “I used to sneak into my mother’s makeup drawer and sit in the bathroom for hours applying her Estee Lauder lipsticks – my favorite was “Rich Red”, she recounts. Always a bookworm, she happened upon the classic Kevyn Aucoin beauty bible “The Art of Makeup” and begged her parents to purchase it for her at the age of 11. There began an obsession with makeup, hairstyling and beauty that still lives on.
A rock-n-roller since childhood, Christina always wanted to be in a band. “Unfortunately, I lacked the musical talent part,” she laughs. But the one talent that stood out from the beginning was her gift for makeup artistry. This ability was noticed even back in high school, where friends & neighbors lined up to have her do their makeup & hair before a night out.
Christina got her start in 2007 working with indie bands and low-budget music videos. An intense work ethic and multi-faceted talent with makeup & hair took the notice of several agencies and she signed with Celestine Agency in 2009.
Nine years after her start, her penchant for a masculine & natural look paired with an easygoing demeanor & fashion-forward sensibility has made her one of the most sought-after men’s groomers in the business.
Christina’s clientele ranges from top Hollywood actors (George Clooney, Donald Glover) to hot music acts (Kendrick Lamar, 21 Pilots, Troye Sivan, Avenged Sevenfold, KISS, the Chainsmokers) to international corporations (Target, NFL, Adidas).
