If you could kidnap any hot man celebrity and keep him held hostage at Flash, who would it be and why?
Jason Momoa….Hands down! Have you even seen that man?! Look with your special eyes! Man bun + beard + tattoos + his penchant for trying to make the world a better place while keeping an all around badass vibe equals me kidnapping him and sending a formal letter of apology to his lovely wife, Lisa Bonet.

After spending years as a hobbyist photographer, growing up with a dark room in her family home and going to school for music she decided to turn her passion into her career in 2011 and never looked back. This tall bundle of energy spends her days creating, dreaming and loving. Krystyn is a single mom with a sassy 3 year old, an Alaskan Malamute and a teensy Pinterest addiction.

Enchanted Entrepreneur II 2013, Nominee for Fashion Photographer of the Year by Style Week in 2014 and Artist of the Year in 2015, this woman is taking the creative world by storm. After spending time in 2015 traveling and shooting internationally and mentoring photographers for Association of International Boudoir Photographers, she decided to take this show on the road through good old USA for the Boudoir Across America tour!

“I am here to make our clients comfortable, to find vulnerable moments with them when they are in front of my camera and to share in their joy when they find that spark within themselves that ignites the images. I am blessed beyond words and truly believe in living a life of gratitude, living every day to its fullest and giving no f*cks and just being yourself.”

 

AMANDA    

Hair & Makeup Rockstar specializing in vintage glamour, Partner at Salon Boutique, Model & Karaoke Master

Describe yourself in three words:
Eclectic, outgoing, care-free

What do you love most about the beauty industry?
I love the instant gratification of making someone not only look beautiful but feel like a million bucks. It’s rewarding to make an impact on someone with a little hairspray and lipsick.

If you could kidnap any hot man celebrity and keep him held hostage at Flash, who would it be and why?
Gerard Butler. I want him to whisper sweet nothings to me half naked like in 300 and sing to me in P.S. I Love You.

This woman does not stop. This beautiful blonde bombshell has been a hair & makeup artist for ten years, training in Las Vegas, Tampa & Baltimore. If you are looking to completely revamp your look this is your lady. She knows exactly what looks best on and off the camera. In addition to 5 years of the Readers Choice Award, countless times being published as both a model and makeup and hair stylist in international and nationwide publications, this lovely lady has also been featured in Pinup America.

(Sorry fellas, this gorgeous cat crazy woman was just taken off the market.)

“I am a model in Pittsburgh as well as a hair and makeup artist. I feel it helps me make the client comfortable being around the camera. I am also versatile, I can successfully create any look from sensible to vintage bad-ass.”

DANIELLE   

Hair & Makeup Badass, Owner of Mock Makeup, Esthetician, Commercial/TV Makeup Artist, Super Mom, Actress & Model

Describe yourself in three words:
Creative, passionate and friendly.

Who is your beauty icon?
Old Hollywood Starlets! Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Lauren Bacall. These ladies to me, were timelessly strong and beautiful in a day where men dominated the screen.

If you could kidnap any hot man celebrity and keep him held hostage at Flash, who would it be and why?
Charlie Hunnam! Sorry hubby! I love a bad boy biker.

The gorgeous red head in our team has taken her business from a little start up to amazing in a few short years! Her attention to detail is first rate and she is so sweet that we aren’t convinced she isn’t a secret assassin. Danielle has a B.A. in Liberal Arts and over a decade of experience in theater that she uses with Cornerstone TV, NYR Organics, Television Ad Group & TB Talent, just to name a few.

This beautiful woman thrives on creative chaos when she isn’t at home with her hubby and brand new, unbelievably adorable newborn baby girl. How does she always look that amazing?!

“I love being able to enhance my clients look and self esteem! My entire businesses goal to to provide professional on location makeup, organic spray tanning and skincare guidance. I’m a licensed Esthetician and also have a background in Theatre Performance. I am versatile creatively and enjoy every minute of it.”

CHRISTINA   

Describe yourself in three words:
Passionate, outgoing, goofy.

If we looked in your iPhone right now what would be your top played song?
Probably Britney Spears ‘work Bitch’ I use it to work out, shopping, anything really. I use it for motivation!

You have such a unique style, what are your influences?
My style is very minimalist. I like things simple, clean cut and expensive. I really love Victoria Beckham’s style, and Jennifer Anniston. I’m big on luxury. Anything that looks luxurious I want to wear.

2015’s Stylist of the Year (3rd Annual Style Week Pittsburgh) Christina Stein is not your ordinary stylist. This North Hills native has always believed – while fashion is a form of wearable art and style, a state of mind – that the concept of “styling” isn’t just helping clients get into the hottest or most trendy clothes; it’s much more than that. To Christina, styling is helping clients feel comfortable and beautiful in their own skin, while positively portraying that feeling through the clothes they wear.

This gorgeous brunette is getting married in early 2016 while working hard and creating her place in the fashion world!

“I want my clients to feel as though each step down the sidewalk is a fierce strut on their own personal runway!”
