Christy was a joy and very easy to work with. At my hair and makeup trial I explained to her what I was looking for and she nailed it right away. On the day of my wedding she showed up early and starting working her way through my bridal party right away. We stayed ahead of schedule the whole day. Everyone loved their hair and makeup and it all helped up throughout the entire day, which was a bit of a challenge because it was a hot a humid day. I had a lot of compliments on throughout my wedding and I loved it. My grandma 86 year old grandma decided at the last minute that she wanted to get her makeup done and Christy had no problem staying and adding her in at the end. I would highly recommend using Christy for your hair and makeup needs.

Christy was incredibly affordable and so great to work with! My makeup came out beautifully, but the work she did with my hair was just amazing. It's a bit unusual, transitioning from dark brown to navy blue, and she came up with a gorgeous updo that highlighted the blue perfectly - so many compliments! She and her assistant, La'Kendra, also did a fantastic job with makeup and hair for my bridesmaids.

I would absolutely recommend Christy - she's incredibly communicative and easy to get along with, but she also isn't shy about keeping things on schedule and letting you know what needs to be done (super-important on the hectic day!). Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

Christy did an exceptional job with my hair on my wedding day. She took care of 6 other people's hair as well, and everyone of them looked wonderful. Her flexibility to add people last minute was extremly helpful, and she always had a postive attitude and a smile to share. I loved working with Christy thorughout the process of choosing my hair style, I changed it multiple times including a last change the week of the wedding, and she did an amazing job witht he final style chosen. I got compliments all night.

Christy was great to work with. I booked Christy to do my hair and makeup as well as to work with my sister, mother in law, and a friend who was attending the wedding. She agreed to come to the hotel to work with all of us early on the morning of my wedding. When she arrived we had one additional person who wanted her hair done, and Christy accommodated us without any hesitation while sticking to her schedule to make sure we were out the door on time!

Christy was amazing and I would HIGHLY recommend her for hair and make-up. Working with her is so incredibly easy. She is very professional and has great ideas for options to choose from. My husband loved my style on our wedding day, couldn't stop raving about my unique hair design and my eye makeup. What I also loved about working with Christy is that she was super responsive via email. I had a last minute addition and then another deletion. Christy was able to accomdate and I was really thankful. Work with Christy, she's a true professional.

Christy is the consummate professional! She worked with me to try out three different styles before the wedding and executed perfectly the big day. Her assistant was a great addition to the team. Without a doubt I would recommend Christy to everyone. She is very flexible and willing to do whatever it takes to make the day a success. She also knows exactly when to help the bride and skillfully kept me calm at a few moments when I was ready to have a meltdown on others. Despite the weather (rain all day) my hair and makeup held up all night and even had a few curls left the next morning.

Christy was extremely helpful from the very beginning of working with her. She was able to answer all my questions and was extremely flexible. Her and her partner were able to do my hair, 7 bridesmaids and my mother in less time that we expected. My hair stayed all night and looked great in pictures. I had several bridesmaids who have hair that is extremely thick and doesn't usually hold up for long. Their hair help up with the 80 degree heat and hours of dancing. Christy met us at the hotel to get ready and was very professional. I would definitely refer to any brides.

If you're anything like me you probably have a spreadsheet with tabs for each of your vendors tracking pros, cons, prices and reviews. Stop right now and hire Christy. Her hair and makeup skills are undeniable and she has a fantastic personality. On the day of my wedding, my mother arrived on time at my hotel suite to get her makeup done only to realize that she forgot my dress!! Christy kept everyone calm and waited an extra hour until my mom returned with the dress. She helped me choose the perfect hair style even when I wasn't quite sure what I was looking for. My mother got so many compliments and my bridesmaid with crazy thick curly hair was incredibly happy with her braided updo. Her prices are fantastic compared to a salon or any of the other on site hair specialists and she does fantastic makeup too! Don't underestimate the craziness of a wedding day morning. It's going to be nuts no matter how much you plan. Christy is able navigate the craziness and allow you to sit back and relax. It's worth every single penny. I promise.

Christy was so amazing to work with. I was lucky enough to work with her twice, once as a bridesmaid and once as a bride, and both times exceeded expectations. She's so kind and so talented!!! She's also very flexible even when its last minute. On my wedding day, I had to add an extra bridesmaid and she was glad to stay and help. Everyone looked gorgeous and the makeup stayed on all night, even after the cake smashing! I highly recommend Bridal Concepts by Christy!

I had an amazing time working with Christy for my wedding and am happy to say that I am still a client of hers as I will be going back to her again and again to have my hair cut and styled!

First off, Christy has an amazing personality. She is kind, professional, and so easy to work with. I had two hair trials with Christy to find the perfect style. During each one she listened to what I wanted, what I didn't want, and worked so hard to get it just right. After two trials I can tell you that she is able to do ANYTHING. I went from wanting something very intricate and detailed to a very simple bun, so I have seen first hand the talent and skill she has!

I had seven bridesmaids and my mom getting ready with me on my wedding day. Christy and two of her assistants (La'Kendra and Kim) came to the hotel that we were getting ready at and made every one of us feel beautiful. Christy did my hair and it was absolutely perfect- I loved it and was so comfortable! I had my hair done at 8:00 AM and it was still perfectly intact at 11:30 PM! Christy also did everyones make-up, which she is amazing at. She is very skillful at getting you the look you want without making you feel like you have a pound of make-up on. Some girls did smokey eyes and some did a more dow-eyed look- Christy executed both styles beautifully. I highly recommend having her apply fake eyelashes too! I was apprehensive, but within 10 minutes you forget they're on and they really make your eyes pop. The rest of her team worked on the bridemaids' and my mom's hair. They were patient and very talented. Several girls even changed their minds half-way through and these women didn't bat an eye! Everyone left feeling great about their hair.

It's so important to feel beautiful and comfortable on your wedding day and that's exactly how Christy and her team make you feel. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Christy was so relaxed and easy to work with, even when I changed my mind on my hair/makeup a few days after our run through. The best part was she came to our wedding location! She was prompt and finished when she said she would finish.

Everyone felt pampered and taken care of. I would DEFINITELY recommend Christy's services to anyone looking for a hair/makeup stylist for special events/weddings.

Thank you, Christy!

Christy was wonderful! From the trial appointment to the wedding day itself, it was a joy to work with her. Christy helped both of us (bride and mother of the bride) to decide on our desired "look" for the wedding and then made it "come to life" through both hair and make-up.

Christy was wonderful! From the trial appointment to the wedding day itself, it was a joy to work with her. Christy helped both of us (bride and mother of the bride) to decide on our desired "look" for the wedding and then made it "come to life" through both hair and make-up. We received so many compliments! I highly recommend her! Read less

I am so glad I found Christy for my onsite hair and makeup. I was astounded at the minimum requirements and fees for other onsite hair/makeup artists, so I was so relieved to have found Christy. Not only are her rate extremely reasonable, but she is also so talented and very knowledgeable about hair and makeup. I actually did 2 hair and makeup trials with her because I ended up changing my mind after the first one (fickle bride here... lol) but the end result on my wedding day was exactly what I had envisioned!! She made all of us look so amazing (all 5 of my girls got hair done, 3 also had makeup) and my makeup and hair still looked great even after sweating and dancing my butt off! Even though I made a mistake and had misjudged how long it would take for one of my bridesmaid's hair (it was fair longer than I remembered!), Christy took it in stride and kept us on (and eventually ahead of) schedule. The little goody bag she gave me was also a nice treat. Thank you so much, Christy!

We are so glad that we chose Christy for our wedding! She provided both the hair and makeup for our bridal party. Everyone looked beautiful and they all loved their hair! She is also so easy to work with and has reasonable prices! I liked her so much that I even drove the 30minutes to her shop to get my hair cut after my wedding! I would highly recommend Christy to anyone! She did an amazing job!

Christy was such a pleasure to work with. I feel like after much research and calling around she was the only vendor for hair and makeup that was reasonably priced, everyone else was astronomical. After having my trial with her, I signed the contract. She is reasonable and her work is just outstanding. She was also just so much fun to work with, it was like having another friend with us getting ready. She accommodated a few extras the day of that came up in stride and she stayed on time! I am very type A and knowing that she had control of all the girls was such a relief and really helped me relax and enjoy the time getting ready. I recommended her to a friend that is getting married later this summer and I am so looking forward to working with her again. She was so professional and just delightful.

Christy went above and beyond!! She added in my mom last minute for makeup and was even able to fit in my grand mother last minute. She was a true pleasure to work with and most importantly we all looked great!! We all still looked like ourselves but our best version. to top it off her prices were great! I am in a wedding in September for one of my bridesmaids from my wedding and she loved her so much she's already booked her. Everything about the day was perfect and Christy was very calm, professional and helpful. I would use her again in a heartbeat.

I found Christy on weddingwire when I started looking for things to plan my wedding. One of the things that got my attention on the reviews other brides wrote about Christy, was to know that she is a sweet, kind, good person. When I went over her studio for the trial, I knew that the reviews were true. Christy is not only a great stylist, with lots of cool ideas and knows how to make you look gorgeous, but also is a sweet, professional lady, always with a big smile. My wedding was at noon, so Christy came over at 7am, she was on time and with all of her equipment, ready to work! I even told her I needed to go a bit earlier than the original plan and she didn't panic nor got upset, she just kept working and we were ready to go before I knew it! It was a delight to have Christy as my stylist for my wedding, I felt amazing and she did an excellent job! I highly recommend her!

She was incredibly responsive throughout the whole planning process, and very flexible about my trial. She also patiently went through 5 different styles with me until we got it perfect! On the day of she arrived early and made sure all 6 ladies got their hair done on time. Not to mention, the bridal goody bag was pretty awesome :) I would highly recommend Christy for any event!

I cannot thank her enough for the beautiful job she did and would recommend her to all other brides out there looking for someone with extremely reasonable prices and great talent!

I asked her on short notice to do my hair and makeup for my brother's wedding. My previous stylist cancelled at the last minute, and Christy made herself available immediately. She showed up on time, she did a wonderful job on my hair and makeup, and I am very glad to say I have met her :) She has now become my "personal" stylist! She had me looking beautiful for the wedding! I HIGHLY recommend her services to anyone who is looking for someone who is dependable, reliable, does great work, and has a great personality!

Christy was awesome from the start. I had a hard time starting the wedding planning process, so my communication with her was sporadic at best. Despite that Christy was very responsive and provided all of the information I needed.

At the practice run, all I had to do was say "French Twist" and she had my difficult hair looking absolutely fantastic. My mother, who was also getting her hair styled, had no idea what she wanted. Christy came up with a beautiful updo that mom felt comfortable with, and everyone loved!

On the day of the wedding there was an issue with finding the venue. Christy remained calm and professional and was still able to get us both finished on time. She even helped by taking boutonnieres to the guys before the ceremony, helping me into my dress, and even acted as a "bouncer" to make sure my mom and I had time to bond together before the ceremony.

Thank you very much for helping to make the big day go so well!

Want to be confident on your day choose her! I went originally with a disaster on the "test run" but the stylist thought it was great. Not, it didn't last an hour. With Christi it lasted ALL NIGHT . Our ceremony was at 5:30 and lasted with dancing (and we danced) until midnight! In July no less

Christy was awesome to work with! She was very sweet and willing to work with me on anything! She was very affordable and exceeded my expectations! All the girls hair and makeup was fabulous and better than what I expected! She was very flexible when I had to change where we were going to meet at to get our hair and makeup done. Every time I emailed her, she got back to me instantly! I couldn't have picked a better hair/makeup artist. Her assistant Kim was amazing as well and made our experience wonderful too. If you want to go with someone affordable, sweet, and does an amazing job with hair and makeup, you should definitely choose Bridal Concepts by Christy Aspinwall!

I found Christy on this website, and I am more than happy to spread the news and recommend her to everyone!! I LOVED working with Christy. I was a deer staring down headlights when I began to think about hair and makeup for the day of the wedding, seeing as how I almost never wear any make up and my idea of "doing my hair" means putting it in a pony tail. Also, as I was shopping around I was a bit shocked by how much it can cost to get hair and makeup done for a wedding. I was so relieved when I looked at Christy's prices. Until I found her website, I was seriously considering finding a friend or relative to do my hair. When I had my trial run, I had a great time getting to know Christy and working with her to try and find a style that worked best. She took a ton of pictures of everything and sent it to me immediately. Because I was so clueless, she did an excellent job of guiding me through the process of deciding how I wanted my hair to look. The best advice I got from her was to choose a look that shaped my face the best way. And when I looked through pictures with that in mind, it made it so much easier to decide on a look for the big day. She has a lot of experience, and she jut knows her stuff. But for me, what made the experience so much better, was her kindness. While I am forever grateful for the excellent job that Christy did on my hair and make up, I will remember her also for being such a kind person. The day of the wedding, she arrived the same time I did, and did my hair, my matron of honor's hair, my mother's hair, and my make up, but it never felt overwhelming. It felt like a bunch of girlfriends hanging out. So relaxing and fun. I felt beautiful, and for once, I didn't mind getting my picture taken so many times.

She was incredibly helpful with everything from finding a hair accessory to use on my wedding day, to working me into a busy Father's Day weekend for a hairstyle trial run, to conveniently coming to my house on the big day to do hair and makeup for my bridesmaids and me. She's also very affordable - one of the most reasonable I found by far, especially for the caliber of services and convenience of having her come to you on your hectic wedding day.

Christy was a pleasure to work with. Throughout the process of being a bride I have been amazed at how outrageous most of the wedding industry is. Christy seems to live outside of that. She is incredibly helpful and generous with her time. I have very difficult hair to work with (thick, wavy and short) and wanted 40s style finger waves. Christy was very accommodating and worked with me until I was confident that I had the style I wanted. On top of everything her prices are very reasonable. In addition she did my Mother in Law's hair along with my aunt's. Neither individuals were definite they were going to get something done and there were other possible people who thought they would. Christy was very flexible and did an excellent job on all of us!

Christy is a dream to work with. She's so outgoing, professional, and fun to be girly with since she does both hair and make-up for weddings.

One of the first things you'll find with Christy is how flexible she is to try a lot of different approaches with both hair and make-up depending on what you are looking for. Also, she comes with hair accessories to play with and takes pictures so you can reflect on the experience. She goes out of her way to please and did so with me.

Another big plus is she'll come to you. All the trials were at my home and on the wedding day, she was on time and ready at the wedding venue where I requested her to be. So you don't have to worry about the hustle and bustle of a salon if that's not your thing.

Finally, another big positive to Christy is her pricing. She offers superb services at really reasonable rates for the bride, wedding party members, and family. I had 4 people for Christy to manage (including me) and everything went smooth and all the ladies were happy and we had fun getting ready with her help. I'm still amazed by the final costs since it was so affordable.

And once pictures were posted, I got lots of compliments on how I looked and Christy was a big part in glamming me up, but keeping me natural all at the same time.

For all brides to be, check Christy out. She's the best!

Another big plus is she'll come to you. All the trials were at my home and on the wedding day, she was on time and ready at the wedding venue where I requested her to be. So you don't have to worry about the hustle and bustle of a salon if that's not your thing.

Finally, another big positive to Christy is her pricing. She offers superb services at really reasonable rates for the bride, wedding party members, and family. I had 4 people for Christy to manage (including me) and everything went smooth and all the ladies were happy and we had fun getting ready with her help. I'm still amazed by the final costs since it was so affordable.

And once pictures were posted, I got lots of compliments on how I looked and Christy was a big part in glamming me up, but keeping me natural all at the same time.

For all brides to be, check Christy out. She's the best! Read less

Christy and I discussed her services although I didn't have a chance to use them (my mother-in-law and mother's last minute changes) but Christy was very flexible and willing to make it work for the bride even though we had only contacted her a week's time in advance. I'm not able to select a "n/a" for quality since we couldn't use her, but I was so impressed with her attention that I needed to write her a review. She was very responsive, flexible and informative. Her services look great and the value is there as well. Thanks Christy - you were terrific.

Christy made my bridal party and moms look absolutely beautiful! Christy arrived on time and was able to stick to the schedule that was planned. She was friendly and caring. Christy always asked for our opinions just to make sure we were happy with how she was making us look. We got our make up done in a hotel room and she even helped out making sure the maid service got us extra towels! Christy is very professional and very talented at what she does. I would highly recommend her to everyone that needs professional make up service! Thanks for making us look beautiful!

Christy was amazing! I found her here on wedding wire and liked her photos and her estimate. I had a hair and makeup trial with her and my mother about 6 months before the wedding, which went really well. One great thing about Christy is she is meticulous about taking photos of all the looks that you try which is great for reviewing what you like. She had lots of advice, product and ideas and had lots of accessories that complemented the ones I already had. She was fantastic on the day of the wedding! She was on time and not only did she do the hair and makeup she was scheduled for (mine, the two mothers' and two bridesmaids) but she was also able to lend her expertise and accessories to the other two bridesmaids who had problems when trying to do their own hair. She was knowledgeable and professional and friendly and does great work! I loved what she did with everyone's hair and makeup - mine included- and would highly recommended her to anyone.

Christy was amazing! She did a wonderful job on my hair and makeup. She was very flexible with what I wanted. The week of the wedding I had found a new hair style I liked and she was perfectly fine with me changing my hair style a few days before the wedding. She was a blessing to have with me that day. My sisters and I were running a little behind on the wedding day, so in the end we were kind of rushing. I did not have a chance to clean up the hotel room before we had to leave, but to my amazement Christy had cleaned everything up and even put things back in there proper places. That was the best wedding present ever. I couldn't have asked for more. I highly recommend Christy. She goes above and beyond and I know you will be impressed with her service!

I worked with Christy Aspinwall at The Drake Parlor Salon for my wedding hair and makeup. My wedding was in San Diego, CA and she came out to the wedding with us and did beautiful updos for me (the bride), 2 of my bridesmaids and the flowergirl. Before the wedding Christy met with me twice to do practice updos and makeup. She was very accomodating and willing to meet whenever was best for me. She was very helpful the day of the wedding and had everything planned out in order to relieve stress on me and to not be rushed at the end to get it all done. Christy was very helpful on the day of the wedding and even offered to help with other things while at the wedding. I would recommend her to anyone needing hair or makeup for their wedding or any other event.
Thanks Christy for helping to make my day extra special!

If you're looking for a friendly, professional, creative stylist for your big day, I highly recommend Christy Aspinwall. I had the pleasure of working with her twice- for hair and makeup the day of my engagement pictures as well as my wedding day. Our practice sessions left me feeling confident that I would be looking my absolute best as she used her expertise to transform our ideas into reality. She also worked hard to be accessible and flexible, which I appreciated immensely in the whirlwind that led up to my wedding, as well as the event itself! I couldn't be happier with the results, and am confident that whether you're looking for an elegant up-do or a more natural look, Christy will be able to help you with your beauty needs and make the experience a great one.

Christy provided a very helpful hair trial session in which she looked at pictures of hairstyles I liked and came up with a few hairstyles along similar lines to show me. She took multiple pictures of each hair style tried so that I could see how it looked in pictures and remember what we tried. Very helpful! Also on the of the wedding, she did a great job in making my bridesmaids' hair look great, even when they did not quite know what they wanted. And of course my hair came out gorgeous and held up pretty well throughout the night.

I would highly recommend Christy! She was not only responsive and answered all of my questions but made me feel completely comfortable through the process. She made great recommendations to me for hair options and make up. She worked with me to find a style that I felt great about. She even ended up highlighting my hair prior to my wedding. She met the wedding party at a hotel and was very flexible that day. Once of my aunt's ended up loving her work and she did her hair as well, unplanned. The hotel room was filled with my loud family and she handled that like a pro. I am 100% happy with Christy's hair and make up styles. I will continue to go to Christy to get my hair done, she is fabulous!

Christy did a fantastic job for my wedding hair and makeup, as well as the hair of my 4 bridesmaids, flowergirl, and Aunt. Every one of us had unique style and a different vision for how we wanted our hair, and I must say she has a gift for achieving everyone's perfect look right away. We were all raving about the results. My Aunt, who has often traveled and gotten her hair done in other cities for black tie events noted that her work was the best she'd ever seen. Christy is so professional and sweet. She cares so much about making her clients happy, that her happiness and calm demeanor is contagious, which goes a long way on your big day. I loved her creative abilities with hair. She gave me 1930's style finger curls that go side to side, rather than cork screw, and I just loved it. I had never heard of it but when I described what I was looking for , she suggested this. We tried about 7 different hair styles in about a two hour trial visit, complete with digital photos.. It made it very easy to decide on the right hair style. When she came to our hotel to do all of our hair, she was ready to roll and she replicated my chosen hairstyle very quickly. I highly recommend Christy for any formal event.

She was flexible in working with my crazy schedule and made sure we had a practice run and all needed supplies so that on "game day" we were set. Her prices are reasonable and her communication with her clients superb. I recommend her to any brides in the Baltimore/Eastern Shore area.

Christy was hired for both bridal hair and makeup the morning of my wedding. She is great at responding to emails and questions very quickly. Christy also accommodated doing 2 more women's hair the day of the wedding when we had only asked the night before. She did a total of 3 up-do's (including 2 brides) and 2 simple styles. Both my hair and my wife's hair looked beautiful! The only regret I have was my makeup. I wanted flawless skin but of course I had a couple of zits/scabs on my face the day of the wedding. Christy did my eye makeup really well but did not cover my trouble areas around my mouth very well because she did more of a light/sheer look. Looking back I should have been more up front with my expectations of what I wanted because it was the one thing I was really self conscious of the day of my wedding. But years from now, I know I will only remember how happy I was on my wedding day and Christy help make it a bit less stressful!

Christy was nice to work with. Her prices were great and she traveled to where we were getting ready which was very helpful. I had my hair and makeup done and one of my bridesmaids had her hair done too. I also had a hair trial appointment which is something I really recommend to everyone. I'll be honest after seeing the pictures she took from my hair trial I was a bit worried. The samples didn't look anything like what I was going for or what the pictures I had brought with me looked like. But I contacted her with my concerns along with some additional pictures and she assured me that it wouldn't be a problem. In the end, I was very happy with how both my hair and my bridesmaids hair turned out (both hair styles held up for the entire day even with lots of dancing). She did a beautiful job with my make up too (it was definitely with it not to have to worry about doing my own makeup). She also gave me a cute gift bag/emergency kit which came in handy.

We were happy with the styling that Christy did and it was great to have someone come to my home so that it wasn't yet another place to run around to on my wedding day. She came with enough time to get everyone's hair styled in time. She brought extra hair accessories which my flower girl fell in love with, however, it did add additional cost which I hadn't planned on.

The trail service was great. The day of the wedding she arrived on time as expected but took forever with my mom. It did not turn out as we tought! by the end of the wedding night, it had fallen apart. Plus she was backed up 30 minutes. Which made us late to my wedding. My hair on the other hand was great. Make up was ok. Pricing was ok. She's a very nice peron, and did apoligize for running late.
