Hair & Makeup Stylists

How did Flaunt Makeovers get started?

I've been involved in the Beauty and Fashion industry since 1996. From designing clothes and producing fashion shows, I discovered I wanted to learn as much as I could about hair and makeup styling. I've trained and worked in Hawaii, New York and California and found my new passion in styling and continued training to get licensed as a Beauty Operator. I originally started my company under Christine Gardner, then as demand grew, so did my company and Flaunt was created. Team Flaunt is now Hawaii's most in demand premier make up and hair artists. The talented and confident stylists can create any style requested and are prepared for large bridal parties and fashion show styling.

What is something unique about your business?

I am a licensed Beauty Operator in the state of Hawaii, and was the first Artist in Hawaii to teach airbrush makeup application workshops. I have had the privilege of teaching many of the professional makeup artists, salons, and spas on the island. In addition to airbrush and traditional makeup application I am also a certified Paramedical Makeup Artist. I am confident to work with any skin type/color and/or problematic skin (rosacea, discoloration, scars, pigmentation, birthmark, bruises, tan lines and tattoo cover). Over the years we have come across many brides that have a difficult time finalizing their styling details. With my background in fashion and design I can make suggestions and help brides figure out what will work best for their hair and makeup styling along with creating custom hair pieces and veils. A few years ago I launched my hair accessory line called ATTACHED.

What is something you really want others to know about your services?

From the beginning of this styling passion, I have kept up on the latest makeup application techniques, hair styling trends, and have always believed in doing everything and anything possible! Team Flaunt has no limits! My team is also VERY sanitary and we strive for the safety and protection of all of our clients. We always sanitize our hands before working with clients, we use disposable lip brushes, mascara wands and constantly clean and disinfect the makeup brushes and equipment we use. When we meet with brides for the trial session, we do not limit our brides to doing only one style. We encourage you to bring in visuals of hair / makeup styles that you would like to try. The trial session is for brides to feel confidently that on the Big Day, she can be completely relaxed knowing exactly what her beautiful self will look like. We also suggest scheduling a trial session first thing in the morning, to make sure that the hair and makeup stay perfectly in place all day long.

What is your ultimate favorite beauty product?

My favorite hair beauty product has to be White Sands Liquid Texture Hairspray. I LOVE it because it is SO versatile; you can use it to blow-dry, curl, flat-iron, or recreate any hairstyle. It resists humidity & holds your hairstyle all day. It leaves your hair feeling soft & smooth & doesn't become flaky or crunchy. I also LOVE the way it has the sweet smell of peaches!
