Adam Al-Kisawni was born in Amman, Jordan where he began styling hair. He was influenced and mentored by some well known names in the hair and fashion industry but quickly ventured on his own, building a rather large client base. As the years went on, Adam's love for styling grew into a passion that he pursued more and more. At the age of 16, Adam had his first hair show and it only confirmed what everyone already knew... Adam's work was incredible. Adam became a Master Stylist in 2007 and moved to the U.S. in 2008. Although he was leaving behind a large client base, with his unique style and attention to detail, it wasn't long until he built a following that surpassed the previous. The ©Hair By Adam team is located in San Antonio & Bergheim/Boerne TX but they travel all throughout the U.S. and abroad upon request. With the client base that Adam and his team has built and the influences these clients have among the fashion and film industry, very shortly ©Hair By Adam will be a common household name.

Christian Rangel is a graduate of Smithson Valley High School class of 2010, and is a License Massage Therapist. He received his Certification from River City School of Massage in San Antonio in 2012. He felt it would be a rewarding career choice, while attending further studies in Health. He says, “I think what really made me want to become a massage therapist was that I had a natural talent for it. Since the beginning in my career, I’ve been told that my massages feels like I have plenty of years of experience. Customers expressed he has given them the best massage they have ever had. So he feels it’s safe to say, “I’m in the right career field”. He really does enjoy making people feel good about themselves. Christian believe everyone can use a massage because everyone has daily stressors in their lives. He knows his body is his own temple, and he tries to take care of it the best he can, so if he has the ability to also care for other people’s bodies and health, he figured that’s it’s his duty to do so. He likes to combine Swedish and Deep Tissue modalities to accommodate whatever the body needs. Christian explains that sometimes guests have pain in their neck, in their levanter scapula, or in their shoulders, in their rhomboids and traps, but almost always he finds that tension is connected to other parts of the body. Together using his Swedish and Deep tissue modalities, Christian is confident he can get any person to relax. On his free time, he loves to run, play basketball, and work out. Christian also likes to go hiking in different places in Texas with his dog. Christian is an excellent team member here at Diamond Spa and we hope you will be pleased with his expertise talent in Massage Therapy.
