Christina DeMag

We proudly announce the 2022 Ultimate Stylist is Christina DeMag! This powerhouse stylist and salon owner loves transforming hair into art, whether it’s heading down the runway or the wedding aisle. Christina has a passion for education and strives to teach stylists everywhere how to design looks that complement their clients and make them feel gorgeous.

When Christina isn’t behind the chair at her salon, she’s on the road teaching advanced classes at salons across the U.S.

“I joined this competition with the hopes of sharing my experience and what it’s like to go after your goals and your dreams — that anything is possible!”

Spreading love and kindness is a cause close to Christina’s heart, so she was thrilled to show her support and help raise awareness for Born This Way Foundation. Christina is looking forward to sharing more of her story in Life & Style Magazine and investing in her business. We can’t wait to see what she achieves as she enters this new chapter of her life!

Born This Way Foundation

Ultimate Stylist is a competition for people who help others look and feel their best. Compassion plays a key role in being a stylist, which is why we are proud to support Born This Way Foundation. This incredible nonprofit was co-founded by Lady Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, to support the mental health of young people and work with them to create a kinder and braver world. Through high-impact programming, youth-led conversations, and strategic, cross-sectoral partnerships, this organization aims to make kindness cool, validate the emotions of young people, and eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health.

LoveSeen is on a mission to create faux-lash styles in multiple shades that mimic natural lashes. When longtime lash wearer Jenna Lyons and makeup artist Troi Ollivierre noticed a lack of hyper-natural, everyday faux lashes on the market, they decided to make their own lashes so that every eye shape, hair color, age, and skin tone could find a lash they love. LoveSeen’s 98% plastic-free products use soy-based inks, and recycled and recyclable material where possible, and have lash trays made from sugarcane pulp.
