Christine Moore Howell

Christine Moore Howell
For 28 years Christine Moore Howell (1901 - 1972), catered to very high class and particular clientele. Adjoining her salon was a laboratory where she produced her hair and skin care products. Clients came from great distances to take advantage of her special talent for cutting curly hair.

In 1935 Mrs. Howell helped to create New Jersey's State Board of Beauty Culture and served as a State Commissioner of the Board of Beauty Culture Control. And was elected Chairman of the commission for three terms. In 1936 she wrote, the "Beauty Culture and Care of the Hair."
