Christine Simonelli – Instructor

Christine brings over 9 years of experience and expertise at some of Fairfield County’s best salons, to her teaching position at SoNo Academy.

A graduate of the Learning Institute for Beauty Sciences in Manhattan, NY, Christine has worked at Guy Sasson in Stamford and Angela Cosmai in Westport. She is trained with Goldwell, Redken, Wella, Sebastian, All-Nutrient and L’Oreal. She is also certified with Brazillian Blowout, and Global Keratin Treatment.

Christine offers services in cutting, styling, coloring, and keratin treatments and specializes in foiling and styling.

Christine decided to pursue teaching after realizing that many new beauty school graduates don’t have the skills and confidence they need to make the most of the job opportunities available. Her goal is to make a difference for her students and help help them get the right training they need to succeed.

“I just love this career so much. I personally get so much out of it and I get such a good feeling when I make a client happy. The industry is always changing and there are always new things to learn. I like knowing that I have the best and most up to date skills. Teaching is just as rewarding, especially when I teach a student a new skill, they go and use it and come back to thank me. That’s how I know I’ve made a difference.”

Christine is inspired by the success of various celebrity stylists such as Ken Paves, Sally Hershberger and Ted Gibson. “They are right at the top, working on award shows and behind the scenes on major movie shoots. And I know they just came out of some small beauty school somewhere and were able to make it big…even in Hollywood. I think that is amazing.”
