Making Faces since 2012, Joined Parlor in 2014

Aveda Makeup Artist, Christopher James, is known for his love of skin care and makeup.  Christopher is famous for his infectious energy and giving nature here at Parlor.  You will find him mostly in our Brooklyn location giving makeup lessons, sharing skincare knowledge, and coordinating our guest’s services.  He is a wealth of information and a joy to spend time with.  Some of his editorial work can be seen on the runways of New York Fashion Week, where he has joined Aveda Global Artistic Director of Makeup Janell Geason for the past 4 seasons.

Christopher began his career in Las Vegas as a hairdresser, graduating from the Aveda Institute.  Competing and winning several avant-garde styling competitions, he was inspired by the craft of makeup artistry and began a rich freelance career serving the many showgirls and socialites in the Las Vegas and Los Angeles areas.The opportunity to work with Aveda on fashion’s biggest stage beckoned him to move to New York City in 2014 where he began his career with us at Parlor.

Since arriving in New York, he has been pursuing the path of a makeup educator with Aveda.  He now pampers our guests with his knowledge and skills while bringing the latest inspiration and cutting-edge techniques learned on the runway to the salon for our stylists and for you!  He is frequently part of our bridal beauty crew both in the salon and on site for weddings as well!
