Top models in Manhattan are rumored to be booking flights to Palm Beach in record numbers. While they’ve always headed south for the sunshine, now they are coming to see Wellington resident Christy Chis — a former esthetician with Mario Badescu in New York and recent transplant to Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa.
A longtime facial specialist at the renowned MB Salon, Chis cultivated a following from such recognizable beauties as Heidi Klum and Naomi Campbell. “I am very honest with my clients and take time to learn their needs and wants,” Chis said. “And I only use the very best products. Once they follow my direction, my clients see results. I focus on giving them tremendous value.”
Romanian-born like her mentor, Chis studied beauty in her native country before coming to the U.S.
“In Europe, we undergo extensive training and education, studying anatomy, nutrition and biology before ever training with clients,” she said. “I focused my studies on skin care, and then moved to New York to receive my license there.”
Chis spent 20 years at Mario Badescu before heading to Florida. A happy experience with Eau Palm Beach led her to return to the award-winning Manalapan property. “My daughter was married here three years ago,” she said.
“Christy is a wonderful addition to our team,” said Catherine Warren, Spa and Leisure Director at Eau Palm Beach. “As we enter party season in the Palm Beaches, we know that Christy will be helping everyone look their most refreshed, best self.”
