JULIE'S MAGICAL!!!

St. Thomas Hairstylist and Makeup Artist JULIE BRYAN MADE ME LOOK LIKE A MODEL ON MY WEDDING DAY! And yet, I didn't look anything like an overdone unrecognizable stranger! How in the world did she do that?!? Maybe I'll never know --but I'm not complaining! MY HUSBAND WAS TOTALLY "WOWED"! And the PHOTOGRAPHS --WOAH you wouldn't BELIEVE how stunning my makeup made me look in the photos!

And believe me, I was NOT an easy client to work with on the wedding day! For example, "Let me see my makeup with a little more of this"..."now a little less"..."now a little more again" --yeah, I went there. Ha! But Julie was SOOO patient! She allowed me to have as much (or as little) input as I wanted through the ENTIRE process! With some aspects of my hair and makeup, I had VERY specific/detailed requests --Julie fulfilled them to a "T", and then some! With other aspects, I had no clue...So, I just trusted Julie to do her "thing", and it was wonderful! Julie was so thorough and detailed that she even took the style of my earrings AND MY DRESS into consideration when helping me to make my desired hairstyle into an EVEN BETTER reality! Also, Julie's the opposite of fake...and talking with her while she worked brought an overwhelming calm over me on the big day!

The ENTIRE planning process with Kristina was top notch! She scheduled and coordinated everything...and she even took special steps to ensure that the hairstylist who attended to my maid of honor was sensitive to her special needs (my MOH is prone to migraines that can sometimes be triggered by another woman's perfume, scented hairspray, tight updo's, etc.). But Artistry by Kristina made sure that everything for my MOH was loose, gentle and unscented...I am SO grateful for Kristina's understanding and genuine compassion!

Only thing I'd do different --After we finished, I would have sent Julie over to the men's dressing room to spray my fiancé's hair! Seriously brides --consider it!

I'll admit that I wasn't exactly planning out my elopement too far in advance but as the clock was ticking, my officiant suggested I reach out to Kristina for my hair and makeup. I was absolutely thrilled to find that there was an availability on my date just two weeks out. Responsiveness with e-mail communications varied from within a few hours to a few days. I was very appreciative of the adjustments to the appointment time to allow for ample travel time to my ceremony location from the condo I was staying in. Unfortunately my stylist Ana had some difficulty finding me and my hair was still wet (I was unsure as to what proper prepwork was required of me) but Ana was very patient and made me feel gorgeous on my big day. I also like to note that she didn't rush but also kept to our appointment so I wouldn't be late. I loved her professionalism and her talented execution! I cannot recommend her enough.

We hired Kristina to do airbrush bridal make up for myself, and my mother for our wedding on October 19. Our appointment was set for 9:00am (ceremony at 11:00am). Unfortunately, there was a breakdown in communication, due to my phone not having service on the island, as a result, we didn't get started until 10:00am, Kristina worked excellent, under pressure and limited time frame. She was very pleasant and professional. Our makeup came out flawless.

Maybe I expected too much because my wedding planner spoiled me with responding to my e-mails within hours or even minutes. Kristina took sometimes days to respond to e-mails. My photographer had plans to take photos of my sister, mom, and I prior to the wedding. This did not happen. After stressing that I needed to be ready at 3pm, ceremony was at 5pm, I was not ready at 3pm nor was I ready at 5pm. Our appointments were scheduled for 1pm. After having my makeup done, I had to touch it up myself. My eyebrows were not evenly filled in, my eyes not as dark as the photo I provided, I contoured my face more, and sprayed with a setting spray (makes makeup last longer for an occasion such as a wedding). She did not use a makeup setting spray at all. Kristina took over an hour and fifteen minutes on just myself. It was only 3 of us getting hair and makeup by herself and a colleague. And neither of us were ready. I actually ended up doing my own hair because the stylist told me my hair would not hold a curl because it was heavy, when in fact I curl my own hair all the time. She did refund me for my hair. The next day, I woke up, did my own makeup and hair, and got wedding ready all over again to take photos with my photographer we did not get to take the day of the wedding. I've sent an email about the experience two days ago and she has not yet replied. If I had any idea, I would have opted to do my own hair and makeup and my sister and mom. I've worked with makeup artist and hair stylists for over fifteen years through my career of modeling and working in film and have never seen an artist so slow. Many artist can complete a full face, lashes and all in 20 minutes. There is no reason 3 people should have not been ready in 4 hours with the help of two people.

Kristina did a FANTASTIC job with my airbrush bridal makeup and lashes. She was so great to work with - I showed her a few photos of what I wanted and she worked her magic! Even in the heat and humidity of St. Thomas, the makeup lasted all night and still looked perfect. She was so sweet, arrived early, and I would definitely recommend her!

I cannot sing higher praises about Artistry by Kristina. Kristina is a master at her craft and her team mirrors her talents. My makeup was gorgeous and (airbrush) lasted throughout the day, even with the hot Caribbean sun blazing down on us! Julie was my hair stylist and was incredible as well...it turned out amazing! I've had my hair and make-up done for many weddings in the past, but Kristina and her team are on a totally different level. She was a professional in all other aspects from day one. She is able to travel to accommodate your needs which was excellent...not having to figure out how to get 10 people to a salon was one less thing to deal with and was much appreciated. If I could put Kristina in my pocket and take her with me everywhere I went, I would!!

Kristina (makeup) and Julie (hair) wow'd me. I was so happy with my hair and make-up, so were my sisters, mom, and mom-in-law. Kristina is top notch quality and she knows what colors look good on different complexions... I didn't even have to show her a picture, I just sat there and she worked her magic. I have had makeup done for weddings back in the states and Kristina is on a different level...she is phenomenal. She even went above and beyond and added single lashes to everyone's eyes which wasn't part of my invoice; this shows she is less concerned with nickle and diming her customers and prioritizes making her clients feel beautiful- this small gesture made everyone's eyes pop! Julie was fast and listened to what everyone wanted, she did a really beautiful job on everyone and I especially loved my hair which was simple and low with fresh flowers. My mom has a skin graft on her hairline from a childhood accident and Julie was gentle and was able to give my mom a beautiful look despite my mom being nervous about her hair. As far as communication, Kristina was timely and buttoned up. I believe she is expanding her business to Miami so anyone in the Miami area should also consider her. I am urging a friend getting married in USVI this summer to hire Kristina because I think she and her team really are the best.

Kristina was amazing. Not only is she beautiful herself, but she's a master at what she does. I never had my makeup done professionally before and was a bit nervous, but she was amazing. She also came to the villa where I was staying which was great and convenient. If you are getting the hair and makeup package, I do recommend a hair trial.
Thank you so much Kristina!!!!
