WE BRING THE SALON TO YOU!

Ever since Christine "Chris" Carpenter was a little girl, she had the passion to want to do hair and makeup. For the past 23 years, she has gotten to fulfill her dream, especially the last 13 years, when she started working for herself, but still in a salon atmosphere. Now she is the founder and lead artist for Columbus Traveling Beauty Team and Styles by Chris (her salon name).

Chris is known for her formal styling, hair extensions (she offers 7 different methods), working with fine/thin/ thinning hair cuts and styles, and hair coloring (she has won Best of Dublin in hair coloring for the past 4 years).

She also offers airbrush makeup (and traditional) artistry which has been focused mainly on brides and photoshoots.

Having worked with many different photographers over the years, the ladies of Columbus Traveling Beauty Team understand what it takes to make everyone look picture perfect all throughout the day, both in hairstying and makeup.

Columbus Traveling Beauty Team consists of only professional licensed ladies that have the passion and desire to help brides and their party members look and feel their best, with hairstyling, hair extensions, airbrush makeup, traditional makeup, and nails all in the convenience of where you would like to get ready.

With the years of experience from all of our team members we know what all we need to bring to make it run as smooth as possible, from having all the hair stying tools (curling irons, flat irons, all different colored bobby pins and hair pins, hair bands, and clips), top quality professional hair products (OSIS by Schwazkopf, Chi, and Bamboo by Alterna), top quality makeup products (Temptu, Mirabella, Tarte, Urban Decay, Mac, Smashbox, and many more), even table and chairs (so we don't have to deal with high backed chairs that are usually found in homes and hotel rooms).

If you are searching for the best in the beauty field, schedule a trial so we can show you what we can do for you! (We offer most of our trials in our salon in the Dublin area off Sawmill Rd, however we do have a few premium makeup artist that are located in other parts of Columbus).

Our work was recognized when we won 2014 "Best of the Knot", which is only given out to 1% of bridal vendors based on brides experiences, while also winning "Couple's choice award 2014", and the "Bride's choice award" for 2012 and 2013.

CTBT consists of

(Duel Artist -does both hair and makeup)

Christine "Chris" Carpenter, Jessica Lape-Costa, and Heather Hall (assistant duel artist)

(Hairstylist- only)

Crystal Bramer, Cherie Fritch, Megan Quirk, Rachel Cooper (assistant), and Cami Minton (assistant)

Christine and her team (assistant) were our choice for day of hair on my daughter's wedding day. Our location was the Hilton Downtown Columbus - and all the girls, flower girls, mothers were present. Christine does a wonderful job with hair but more importantly - she assimilates beautifully into the environment. What might have felt like 'crazy chaos' to others was nothing more than a walk in the park for her. She calmly, efficiently and beautifully attended to all of us who were to be a part of the ceremony. I highly recommend Christine. She is professional, reliable, and kind. We were thoroughly happy and more than satisfied with her services.

We LOVED working with the Columbus Bride Team! The trial was a blast and Chris's talent is incredible. I was able to choose from 7 styles and she and her team came to the church the morning of our wedding. They moved so quickly and my bridesmaids were so impressed with how quickly they worked AND how great they looked! I LOVED working with this team and I would recommend them to anyone!

Christine was a pleasure to work with prior to the wedding and answered all of my questions very quickly. Nicole did my makeup and my mother's makeup for the wedding day and Christine did my sister's makeup. Both of them were very professional and extremely easy to work with. They were also very easy to get in contact with. Nicole listened to exactly what I wanted in the trial and did an amazing job! My husband was blown away when he saw my makeup. I would highly recommend the Columbus Traveling Beauty Team to anyone!

My daughter hired Columbus Traveling Beauty team to do hair and makeup for her bridal party of 8 as well as mothers of the bride and groom. This was a great decision on her part! As mother of the bride I was really impressed with Christine and her staff from the initial consultation onward. Our daughter loved the very first hairstyle Christine did at her trial, and Amber is a genius with makeup! The day of the wedding Christine arrived at the venue on schedule with Jesse to do everyone's hair and Amber and another team member (I am sorry I do not remember her name) did everyone's makeup. Working with them was fun and relaxing and they had many ideas to share and accommodated everyone's requests. They worked quickly and all 10 of us were ready for pictures with plenty of time to spare. The variety of hairstyles and makeup were amazing. I wish we could have spent even more time with them but the team had two other weddings to do that day! If you want to alleviate the stress and worry of hair and makeup on your wedding day I highly recommend choosing Columbus Traveling Beauty Team to take care of you wherever you are getting married, especially if you have a large wedding party to get ready.

I cannot say enough about Chris and her staff. I was so excited when I found a salon that would travel to guests and I'm glad I scooped her up when I did!! At the trial, she did 6, I repeat 6 different hairstyles to choose from and did not even mind! For the makeup trial (I worked with Stacie), she took care of every little detail; I was so impressed!! My bridesmaids and I had SO much fun while they were there. They worked so well catering to everyone's needs (which I may say, the day of, everyone always wants something they said they didn't want..). My hair was everything I could have dreamt of. It was PERFECT. My makeup was STUNNING. It didn't run, wash off, etc. through the tears, sweat and dancing.

At the trial, she did 6, I repeat 6 different hairstyles to choose from and did not even mind! For the makeup trial (I worked with Stacie), she took care of every little detail; I was so impressed!! My bridesmaids and I had SO much fun while they were there. They worked so well catering to everyone's needs (which I may say, the day of, everyone always wants something they said they didn't want..). My hair was everything I could have dreamt of. It was PERFECT. My makeup was STUNNING. It didn't run, wash off, etc. through the tears, sweat and dancing. Read less

Christine was a true blessing! Her prices are so great, i wondered if she has ever done hair before! She proved that she is a pro. Christine listened during the trial and tried 5 different styles to find the perfect style. (Each one could have been lovely by the way.) ***what made Christine amazing was her willingness to be wherever i was the day of the wedding. She and her crew came to a state park where everyone was staying, did our hair, then followed us to the ceremony which was 45 minutes away. She waited patiently to finalize everything like my veil and finishing touches and was willing to help out in any way. (she even fixed my fake eyelash, which is not her job!) I wish i had another reason to use Christine soon...she will be the first one i call when i do!
