Bio and Resume

Christi Reynolds is an independent professional beauty artist, educator, industry leader, and bridal beauty specialist. With roots based in classic customer service and care, and having been trained and mentored by some of the top artists in the beauty industry, Christi brings an elevated level of experience, education, and skill to every project, production, or special event. A believer that beauty is synonymous with self celebration and care, Christi's approach to hair and makeup is always about the client-who they are, and what makes them look and feel their best. Her portfolio is comprised of both professional images contributed by her professional photographer colleagues, as well as her own imagery taken in her midtown Sacramento studio. 

With over 20 years in the beauty industry, She has contributed her talent for clean and natural beauty for dozens of magazines, local and national ad campaigns, and for live television. Christi's signature style of beautiful skin, mesmerizing eyes and seriously romantic hairstyles have been created for more than 1,000 brides, and formed a loyal clientele and social media following.

Christi owns and operates a private beauty studio based in Sacramento, and she travels throughout California and beyond providing her signature on location hair and makeup service. In addition to making people look and feel like the best version of themselves, Christi gravitates toward the ocean, new places, old things, and romantic stories. She loves photography, true crime, wood fired pizza, her Boston Terrier/Frenchie mix Lemmy, and cooking at home while listening to used vinyl with her husband. She craves connection, cherishes a wise word, and loves sharing wine, meals and memories with friends and strangers. She is available for travel for on location work and destination weddings, and is always planning her next adventure.
