Christina's Contact Information
Christina and Monica Tassi are amazing! Christina did an amazing job with my hair! She did a hair trial about a month before my wedding. She even suggested I try hair extensions- something I never even thought of. She bought them for me and they were my exact hair color. They really made the difference in my hair style - giving me volume and really dramatic hair. I loved it. Monica Tassi did an awesome job with my makeup. Her airbrush skills are flawless. She also did my sister, mom, and sister-in-laws' makeup. They all loved it! - Jessica B. Posted on The Wedding Channel on 11/20/2012 D´AMICI Bridal Hair Review on the WeddingChannel.com.
I checked out reviews in the area for hair salons and decided on this one. I had an appointment with Christina and my boyfriend with Rebecca. I haven't had a hair cut in over 10 years because the last hair cut was butchered so bad. I had really long hair, I could almost sit on it. It was damaged and lifeless. I knew I wanted a side part and long bangs, but most important, I wanted volume on top. I found a picture in one of the books in the waiting room and used it as a reference point for the kind of style I wanted. I made it clear I wanted to keep some length (to the middle of my back, and layered around the face was fine.) I will admit I was extremely nervous not only because I was changing my appearance, but also because Christina looked SO young. When all was said and done I was extremely pleased with the outcome. She made sure to ask questions to be clear what it was I wanted. Also, she let me ask a million questions about what she was doing and how she was styling, so I could recreate the look myself. She was very patient and very friendly. I love my hair. She did EXACTLY what I wanted. I will be keeping up with my new "do," and I will definitely go back to Christina. As for the price point, my cut was $40 with a $15 discount June special for new customers.
Christina is the best ever. I have been going to her for years now. I drive over an hour just so that I can get the best cut and highlight I have ever had. I never know what I want, but Christina is very patient with me and knows what would look great. She has done very dramatic things for me as well and nails it every time. I have gone from blonde to dark brown and then back again. From long and then to dramatically short. Everywhere I go people ask who does my hair. I will forever be her client. Also a plus, she moved to this great new salon and the decor is great. Very relaxing with great hours. - Allison W.
If there was more then 5 stars then I would give it to Christina. I can't believe how long it took me to write this, but Christina is truly an artist. She was so accommodating in squeezing me in for a color right before my wedding and styling all of my bridesmaids and myself for my wedding. She is absolutely amazing. I am recommending her to all my future bride friends. If I lived a smidgen closer to the area I would be going to Christina all the time... But because I moved to nearly the Wisconsin border it is quite a drive! All in all if you need some bridal or special occasion styling she is your girl!! - - Sofiya C.
