Chris Amato

Chris AmatoChristine began a lifelong “love affair with hair” at the young age of 14, taking her first job at a salon, sweeping trimmings and washing hair. Building on her studies and specialized training in some of the country’s most prestigious learning centers for hairstyling, Christine became the proud co-owner of In Style Salon, founded in 1987.

Christine has studied at Vidal Sassoon Academy in California and Canada. She has also trained at Pivot Point in Chicago and Toni & Guy in Boston. Her work has been featured in the trade publication Inspire. Christine’s work can also be seen in the movie A Christmas Story, which was filmed in Cleveland.

Hair design which features precision cuts is Christine’s forte. She creates styles which respect the unique texture of each client’s hair, working carefully to create a style which frames and enhances facial features. Christine is also a master colorist. Her clients soon learn to trust her eye for color and rely on her advice about the transformative possibilities of hair color and highlighting.

Christine continually updates her skills to keep pace with changing fashions in hairstyles and innovative techniques. She uses and recommends the very best leading-edge products to ensure that her clients have success in the day-to-day care and styling of their hair.

“Hair is my passion! It would be my privilege to share my experience, excitement and enthusiasm with you. Please call to schedule a complementary consultation and allow me to create your very best look!”
