I have just recently found Salon Christine. What a blessing!! Walking into her salon provides an escape from the pressures of reality into a fantastical experience of pure relaxation yet positive stimulation. The personal touches that her Salon provides makes it like no other. And, my long curly blond locks have never looked better!! ; ) thank you Christine!

Salon Christine
ARTICLE IN LAWRENCEVILLE HAPPENINGS
JUNE 2011:

Salon Christine becomes the first and only green Aveda Concept Salon in Lawrenceville. The artsy and bohemian salon sitting fashionably on the corner of Hatfield and 49th Street is a direct reflection of owner Christine Goodis' extensive experience in the art and fashion worlds.

Spending many years studying at London sassoons, and working her way to a nomination as "Master Stylist" of Pittsburgh and a presidency of the Pittsburgh chapter of the Art and Fashion group, Goodis was ready to open her third salon. Since April of 2011, doors have been opened to both new and loyal clientele, many of whom have been around for 25 years.

Salon Christine is staffed with master colourists, using every sort of colour from basic touchups to balayage and dimensional glossing sheens, starting at $67. Customized haircuts are styled to the needs of each person, and like any spa of its caliber, waxing, threading, and nails are also available. Salon Christine also offers elaborate "experiences" where private parties can have the salon to themselves for five hours or have a photo session with a professional photographer. The salon is completely green, utilizing both plant and flower based color for all of its clients.

Goodis loves her new location, stating a supportive, growing neighborhood with a unique artistic flair as qualities that brought her to Lawrenceville.

"I wanted to walk and or ride my bicycle to work", says Goodis.

In addition to moving her business to the area, Goodis is also a new resident who is relishing her new spot. When asked what she thinks of the area, only one word would do.

"Fabulous", she says.

Salon Christine is located at 4900 Hatfield Street and is open Tuesday and Wednesday, 11:00am - 8:00pm, Thursday 12:00pm - 9:00pm, Friday 11:00am - 7:00pm. and Saturday 10:00am - 4:00 pm. Find out more at www.salonchristine.com

JUNE AT SALON CHRISTINE

 

I CAN HARDLY BELIEVE THAT THE NEW SALON HAS BEEN OPEN FOR 2 MONTHS. WHAT A JOURNEY ITS BEEN.  

 

I HAVE TO SAY THAT THIS MOVE, ALTHOUGH ON MANY LEVELS WAS THE MOST DIFFICULT MOVE OF MY LIFE, IT WAS ALSO THE SMARTEST MOVE FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS.

 

AT THIS POINT, SALON CHRISTINE LOOKS JUST LIKE A LITTLE SOHO/GREENWICH VILLAGE NEIGHBORHOOD HIGH END EXCEPTIONAL BOUTIQUE, RIGHT IN THE HEART OF ALL THE NEW DEVELOPMENT IN LAWRENCEVILLE.  

Salon Christine

THE FRONT HAS BEEN GORGEOUSLY

DESIGNED WITH SANTA FE NEW MEXICO POTS AND FLOWERS, DONE BY IRISAURUS LANDSCAPING. MIKE CORLE IS A DEAR FRIEND OF MINE AND OWNS THIS FANTASTIC LANDSCAPING COMPANY. HE IS ALSO ONE OF THE MANY LOCAL TALENTS I SUPPORT IN PITTSBURGH.

Salon Christine

 THE SALON IS SLOWLY GROWING IN TO A SMALL AVEDA CONCEPT SALON ART BOUTIQUE. LAWRENCEVILLE NEWSPAPER IS FEATURING US THIS MONTH...THANK YOU LAWRENCEVILLE UNITED AND LAWRENCEVILLE CORP, AS WELL AS ALL THE LOCAL BUSINESS OWNERS, EMPLOYEES AND RESIDENTS, FOR HAVING US AND SUPPORTING US!

 

A MERE 3 MILES FROM DOWNTOWN PITTSBURGH, LAWRENCEVILLE IS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT AND AMAZINGLY FUN WORLD TO LIVE AND WORK IN. THERE ARE NEW BUSINESS'S OPENING LITERALLY OVERNIGHT. LOTS OF SWEET CAFÉS AND RESTAURANTS TO SOCIALIZE OUTSIDE AT.

    

A FEW OF MY MOST FAVORITE PLACES TO EAT AND DRINK AT IN LAWRENCEVILLE ARE...

TAMARI

ROUND CORNER CANTINA

PUSADEE'S GARDEN

PICOLO FORNO

ECLIPSE LOUNGE   

 

PITTSBURGH TRAVELS 

 

EVERYONE AND ANYONE THAT LIVES IN PITTSBURGH KNOWS THE WOES OF PARKING. I HAD TWO SALONS DOWNTOWN FOR THE PAST 16 YEARS AND MANY PEOPLE COMPLAINED ABOUT THE PARKING FEES, THE RAISE IN THE PARKING LOTS, THE BLOCKED AND ONE WAY STREETS AND OR THE LACK OF AN OPEN PARKING GARAGE OR LOT.

 

 PARKING IN FRONT OF THE NEW SALON CHRISTINE IS A TOTAL FREE BREEZE, BUT THERE ARE OTHER DRIVING ISSUES...

 

 OTHER THAN BUTLER STREET BETWEEN 38TH AND 41ST STREET, THERE ARE OTHER ALTERNATE ROUTES TO ARRIVE ON TIME FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT AT SALON CHRISTINE.  

 

 ONE AREA THAT ONE MUST ACCOUNT FOR, REGARDING A TIME ISSUE IS THAT 

RT 28 IS FOREVER UNDER SURGERY.  PLEASE ALLOW FOR PLENTY OF TIME BETWEEN 3 pm AND 6 pm ESPECIALLY!

Salon Christine  

EVERYONE'S TIME IS ABSOLUTELY VALUABLE AND WE TAKE EXTREME CARE IN OUR PUNCTUALITY. EVERY GUEST DESERVES A FAIR AMOUNT OF TIME WITH THEIR PRE-SCHEDULED AND CONFIRMED SERVICE.

 

IF YOU ARE RUNNING LATE, KINDLY CALL US AND LET US KNOW. WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO STILL FIT YOU IN, BUT IT'S NOT ALWAYS POSSIBLE.  WE WANT TO BE FAIR TO THE NEXT GUEST AND ALL THE GUESTS FOLLOWING.  IF YOU ARE RUNNING LATE, WE WILL DO OUR VERY BEST TO RESCHEDULE YOU AT A TIME THAT WORKS ON ANOTHER DAY. 

 

SALON CHRISTINE HAS A LOVELY REPUTATION OF CREATING BEAUTIFUL HAIR AND PEACEFUL ATMOSPHERE, AS WELL AS RUNNING ON TIME FOR 10 HOURS PER DAY, EVERY DAY. PLEASE HELP US TO CONTINUE THAT STANDARD, AND PLEASE BE A PART OF OUR LOVELY SERVICES AND ENVIRONMENT. ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE IS VERY MUCH CARED FOR DURING THEIR TIME SPENT WITH US. 

 

 

AVEDA PRODUCTS

 

AVEDA HAS REALLY AWESOME SPARKLING GLOSSERS THAT ARE PERFECT FOR SUMMER SUN HAIR. THIS PRODUCT TAKES ABOUT 20 MINUTES TO GLOSS OVER YOUR NATURAL HAIR OR HIGHLIGHTED HAIR OR TONED HAIR. ITS SHEER, SO IT GIVES A SPARKLE OF TONE WITH A VARIETY OF COMPLIMENTARY SHINE AND TONES TO YOUR MONTHLY TOUCH UPS. ITS SUPER LIGHT AND LASTS FOR ONE SEASON. THIS PRODUCT HELPS TO GIVE A BIT OF TONE TO SUN KISSED HAIR. IF THIS INTERESTS YOU, LET US KNOW WHEN YOU PRESCHEDULE SO THAT WE CAN ALLOW FOR THE RIGHT TIME INVOLVED TO CONSULT AND GLOSS YOU.

 

I LOVE THE FOLLOWING THREE PRODUCTS BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY ARE MADE OF AND HOW EVERYONES HAIR ABSOLUTELY RESPONDS TO THEM.

ENJOY!

CHRISTINE UNPLUGGED

 

MY HERB GARDEN IS FLOURISHING WITH AN ASSORTMENT OF BASIL, PARSLEY, TOMATOES, SAGE, CILANTRO AND THYME. MANY TIMES I DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO COOK WITH ALL THESE LUSCIOUS SMELLS, SO I CUT THEM INTO SMALL LITTLE SWEET BUNDLES, TIE A RIBBON AROUND THEM, PUT THEM IN RECYCLED AVEDA CANDLE JARS AND SET THEM AROUND MY HOME. THE SMELL IS HEAVENLY WHEN THE SUN SETS.

Salon Christine

  

WE ARE HAVING OUR DOORS MEASURED SO THAT WE CAN HAVE CONSTRUCTION JUNCTION SCREEN DOORS OPENING UP TO SIDEWALK LEMONADE AND SUN BREWED TEA SITTINGS, DURING, BEFORE OR AFTER YOUR HAIR APPOINTMENT. THESE DOORS WILL BE OPEN AT NIGHT ONLY, WHEN THE AIR IS COOLER AND THE BREEZE IS WELCOMED. SOON WE WILL HAVE LOCAL MUSICIANS TO PLAY DURING THE EVENINGS. IF YOU KNOW ANYONE THAT IS INTERESTED IN SMALL EASY GOING PERFORMANCES, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

 

A SWEET NEW ARTIST FROM RUSSIA IS NOW SHOWING HER RUSTIC ART JEWELRY FOR SALE AT SALON CHRISTINE. HER PIECES ARE ONE OF A KIND AND ARE BECOMING QUITE POPULAR.

 

WE'VE GOT SOME SURPRISES COMING UP SOON...SO PLEASE STAY IN TOUCH WITH US, ENJOY US AS WE ENJOY YOU, AND ALWAYS COUNT ON US FOR ROCKIN HAIR.

 

ENJOY JUNE!

METTA,

CHRISTINE

HELLO EVERYONE!  I WELCOME YOU TO VIEW SOME OF MY LATEST HAIR COLOR AND HAIRCUT DESIGN THAT WAS DONE IN MY SECOND SALON LOCATION, AND THEN TAKEN TO A STUDIO FOR PROFESSIONAL IMAGING SHOTS.

I TEAMED UP WITH LONG TIME FRIENDS http;//thurnerphotography.com/ AND http;//www.pattybellmakeup.com/ FOR THE PHOTO WORK AND MAKEUP DESIGN.
THE RESULTS....?
MORE
THAN
FANTASTIC.

TAKE NOTICE, THIS IS ALL THE SAME FABULOUS MODEL. HER MAKEUP, HAIR AND WARDROBE CHANGED OVER A 13 HOUR PHOTO SHOOT. THE CLOTHES ARE FROM MY LONG TIME FRIENDS, MICHELLE AND MARTA THAT OWN MAXALTO IN SHADYSIDE.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN HAVING YOUR OWN PHOTO SHOOT DONE OF YOURSELF, LET ME KNOW. AFTER ALL...THERE ISN'T A WOMAN I KNOW, THAT ISN'T BEAUTIFUL FROM THE INSIDE OUT. A GOOD HAIRDRESSER, MAKEUP ARTIST AND PHOTOGRAPHER CAN CREATE SO VERY MUCH, FOR EVERYONE.

ENJOY!
