Founder, Gotham Beauty Inc.
Featured on CBS, Fox Business and NBC as a beauty expert, Chris Coffee is the visionary and creative force behind Gotham Beauty Inc. A graduate of the Make Up Forever Academy in New York City, the former professional ballet dancer is no stranger to getting glammed up as he has worked with some of the most premiere dance companies and has graced the largest stages such as the New York State Theater. Chris has traveled to international cosmetic shows and worked for leading beauty products and consulted brands from Europe to South America. His background in show business led him to become the Creative Producer for many of the fashion shows by the legendary fashion label, Heatherette which have had faces like Naomi Campbell, Ellen DeGeneres, Pam Anderson, and Kelly Osbourne grace the runway. Chris’ hard work and dedication to what he does has lead him to appear in such publications as “The New York Times”, and “Crain’s New York Business”.
Inspired by the fashion district and Fashion Week in Bryant Park, Chris’ vision was to open a place for those New Yorker’s who are looking for only the best beauty products and services for the ultimate results. Chris stays current with the latest trends in both cosmetic and medical skincare, keeping Gotham Beauty Inc. at the forefront of the newest technologies. This includes bringing in some of the strongest and most effective products in the industry. His passion for skincare and beauty prompted him to create his own line of Gotham Beauty Inc’s products, which include mineral based cosmetics and pH balanced skincare. His beauty venues offer the world’s most innovative beauty products in a truly unique shopping experience. His clients receive unparalleled technical product knowledge, expert advice and friendly service.
Gotham Beauty Inc. stands out from other New York City salons because it’s artists accurately assess an individual’s skin and beauty needs, rather then just push a product or service that doesn’t fit the client’s overall look. The vision for the salon was always to be full service because to Chris, overall beauty is more important then just any one part of a client’s appearance looking runway ready. Chris wants everyone to leave the salon feeling refreshed and beautiful, ready to walk out into the world looking their very best.
