A native Californian, Emmy winner Khrystyne Haje started her career at age 14 as a fashion model. Gracing covers and billboards world-wide, she quickly progressed to commercials, starring roles in Network TV movies and the role of Simone, on ABC's 5-year top 20 hit Head of the Class - now in syndication. She was awarded the Civilian Medal of Honor from the U.S. Department of Defense, for entertaining U.S. troops in the Persian Gulf on the Bob Hope tour. People Magazine named Khrystyne, one of "The 50 Most Beautiful People In The World" with a center fold that won a CLEA for beauty.
On the Rachael Ray Show March 23, 2012 Khrystyne cut her signature long, thick, wavy, red hair to donate it to a worthy cause. Hair donated like this is made into wigs for cancer patients in treatment and distributed by the American Cancer Society free of charge.
Her numerous appearances, staring roles and high recognize-ability add power to her personal message of preserving our natural resources and lifting the human spirit. As a founding board member of ECO, the Earth Communication Office, she works hard to protect our delicate ecosystems. She's presented at the White House on community involvement, publicly taken a stand with MADD, (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) and contributed her time and resources to Best Buddies, which enhances the lives of people with intellectual disabilities by offering love, support and friendship.
Khrystyne's personal life is spent with family and close friends. The only girl in a family of four boys, she developed a love for sports and the great outdoors. She travels between NY, Los Angeles and the Northern California Redwoods, where she maintains a preserve.
