Kristiauna Mangum is a 28-year-old woman of God. The valedictorian of her business class in 2012, she became the owner and founder of an enterprise called The Beauty Mentor, LLC, a Christian faith-based company that provides beauty and mentoring services for young ladies. Kristiauna founded The Beauty Mentor upon eight core biblical principles: Beauty is…patience, kindness, modesty, decency, a loving character, gentleness, joy, and God’s creative ability flowing through us. She believes these core competencies need to move from the abstract, conceptual realm into real-life applications. Providing practical applications to her protégés, and not just mere concepts, helps her clients realize their full potential of being beautiful on the inside and out. In the Greater Columbus area, Kristiauna is currently the leader over the Grace Program for girls in 3rd-5th grade at Columbus Christian Center, a part of the women’s core team, board member for Increase CDC, and a lead prayer intercessor. As a business-savvy entrepreneur, Kristiauna has worked diligently in the beauty industry for the last ten years, being featured in national commercials, advertisements and newspapers such as the New York Times, Oprah radio, and syndicated news station Inside Edition. Her God-given success has also landed her in magazines such as Allure, Cosmo, and Elle. Even with success “in the world,” Kristiauna’s strongest desire is to develop young girls and women in the body of Christ. The Beauty Mentor’s mission is to: “Reveal, Redirect and Restore the Truth about Beauty.” She helps women and girls find their true beauty identities by cultivating their spirits, souls and bodies. Her company stands on Romans 10:15 and Isaiah 61:1-3. Kristiauna teaches youth entrepreneurship classes and sells organic beauty products online and in local retail stores. Kristiauna embodies the qualities every day that The Beauty Mentor stands on and endeavors to sow these seeds into everyone she encounters.
