Christina Christina is Raleigh native and has always had a passion for the beauty industry, so much so that she hightailed it out of high school early to attended cosmetology school and start her career as a stylist! Her dream was always to own her own salon so after putting in about 4 years behind the chair at other salons she finally decided to branch out on her own and open her studio. There she grew her clientele and experience with business for a little over 3 years independently before she expanded into Pinups now pink paradise. Pinup is built up of 12 amazingly talented stylists who all had a passion and interest to get more involved in the bridal industry. Which lead us down this path for over a year now of us getting more involved with all things bridal!
It was no coincidence that Christina and Frankie crossed paths between working bridal shows and weddings together. Frankie, already having a known name in the wedding and entertainment industry, is always willing to lend a helping hand in the bridal world. Christina loves to be involved with anything and everything when it comes to bridal and beauty so together it's a natural team. Collaboration was in the mix between marketing and trying to plan events together. It was only a matter of time...They both bring the best part of their businesses together not only in the public eye but on the show as well. With different takes and outlooks on things, we think it’s fair to say that coming together on The Wedvice Show is the next best thing to help bring all the knowledge to brides, grooms and vendors!
