I’m Christine Byer, licensed skincare therapist from Miami, Florida. My husband and I moved to Austin in 2006. We love it here!

Why My Facials are Different:

In my anti-aging facials I combine muscle-lifting techniques as well as skin texture enhancers (peels, masks etc) for a more complete result. Most facials deal only with the epidermis, or top-most layer of the skin. While this is fine, I’ve discovered that adding muscle toning to every facial really gives an added punch that makes my clients say “WOW!” Come in for a free eye treatment that will knock your socks off!* (First time clients only please.)

My Work Style/Ethic:

Meticulous and methodical, I love doting on my clients. Clients say my made-for-massage-hands are very healing. When you leave my office not only looking better but feeling better - that’s an added bonus. (And you will look better, because my eagle eyes find every flaw while my agile hands correct them!)

It was strange going back to beauty school after graduating from Indiana University, but I had to follow my heart. As the middle child of 6 kids, and one of 5 girls, I realized that I was the “groomer” of the family. I was always teasing (hair that is) and plucking and curling and primping and extracting and massaging and steaming everyone in my family just for fun. I thought, hmm…wonder if I could make a living doing what I love best. YES, I can!

Eyebrow Specialist

Category: Beauty / Style
I’ve been doing eyebrows, facials and waxing for 10 years and I LOVE it! Regarding my eyebrow shaping, clients say it’s like a spa treatment with soothing music and my relaxing facial chair. They sometimes fall asleep! The personal spa setting is calming and private so you can let loose and just be.

I always educate first time clients on their perfect eyebrow shape. Clients love this since their eyebrows can get out of control without them noticing! No eyebrow is too thin, crooked, balding, bushy or wiry for me to tame!

Let me be your personal eyebrow guru. I will make you relaxed and gorgeous!
