After years of practicing experimental haircutting on anyone willing to let her try out a new idea, Christine decided to refine her skills with a formal apprenticeship. She spent two years learning and executing the shapes and structures made famous by Vidal Sassoon, and studying the Bauhaus color theory teachings of Johannes Itten and how they relate to coloring hair. Also interested in deconstruction and abstraction, Christine began working with a straight razor after taking classes at Bumble and bumble. She furthered her education under the direction of Shirley Ching learning how to create effortless, seamless, sculptural shapes. Christine is more apt to draw inspiration from street style, and film rather than from the red carpet, and she considers editorial stylist Raymond McLaren to be a major influence in her work.
