I can't begin to say enough wonderful things about Kristen. She is exactly what every make up artist should be. She listens to exactly what you tell her, and makes great suggestions based off of her years of experience. She did my makeup and hair for my wedding as well as my bridesmaids, and my mother's makeup as well. Everyone was so happy and looked so beautiful. If you are looking for quality hair and makeup for a special occasion you will not be disappointed!! Thank you Kristen for helping make my day more beautiful!

Kristen did an amazing job with my makeup for my wedding this past Friday and for my bridesmaids. She was extremely sweet and professional to work with. I didn't even have a chance to have a trial so it was the first time she was dong my makeup and it came out perfect. I received numerous compliments. She listened to what I had to say, took her time, and made sure I was satisfied with the final product. I highly recommend using Kristen!!

I could not be happier with the way that my hair and makeup came out for my wedding day! I used Kristen and her team for my hair and makeup along with my mom, grandmother and entire bridal party. They were extremely efficient, down to earth and made us look fabulous and natural! I would recommend Kristen's services to any bride that is looking for someone that is professional, responsive and will keep you calm on the morning of your wedding day!! Cannot thank her enough :)

Kristen did an absolutely amazing job on my hair and makeup for my wedding! I could not have been happier with the results! My hair had voluminous, touchable, sexy curls, and my makeup was big, glamorous eyes, natural lips, and flawless skin. Kristen made me totally comfortable in expressing what I did and didn't like, and she did a great job of listening and delivering. Kristen is so meticulous with her work- you can tell that she genuinely cares and wants you to be as happy as possible on your special day! She also did one of my bridesmaids hair and makeup, who wanted a more natural look. Kristen made her look awesome too! Her skills are so versatile in hair and makeup that she can make you look bold and glamorous or subdued and natural. She will do an awesome job for any occasion that you might be celebrating! I will definitely be booking her again.

Kristen did hair for my best friend's wedding (where I was MoH) almost 4 years ago, and I LOVED my hair (I loved the Bride's too!) So when I got engaged three years later, I knew who I wanted for hair. I also had a good idea what I wanted, but Kristen even added a unique twist (literally) around the back of my head for my half-up, half-down style. I also got a hair clip last minute that was flawlessly worked into the style. I don't always love my hair but I did on my wedding day, and I looks and felt gorgeous, and I never once had to give my hair a touch-up. My bridesmaids' hair was gorgeous too, everyone went for something slightly different and everyone looked amazing. In addition to being great with hair, Kristen is also really personable and easy to work with, and very accommodating. She traveled pretty far to do our hair, and also had another affair she needed to attend later that day but she went above and beyond to work with me for my big day.

Kristen did an absolutely amazing job with my bridal makeup and all the ladies in my bridal party! She came to my house with an assistant was very flexible with scheduling and had everything finished in time. My makeup was so light and don't perfectly I didn't feel it all night and it was still perfect by the end! I would highly recommend Kristen for any bride looking for an artist who does an amazing job and has an awesome personality to help keep you calm on the big day!

Kristen did an absolute flawless job on BOTH my hair AND makeup on my wedding day. I felt and looked beautiful because of her work. Hair and makeup are two very important things to a bride so having someone like Kristen really made the day go perfectly. Kristen makes you feel completely comfortable telling her what you do and do not like and will make sure everything is exactly how you want it. I loved the way she does makeup so much that I have hired her for other occasions, she's truly a professional! She uses makeup products that are natural looking and long lasting, including air brush. Her style is modern in terms of hair which was super important to me. I didn't want Shirley Temple curls she she was stylish enough to understand that when many other hair dressers were insistent upon tight curls. She made my hair look natural, sexy, and beautiful all day! Hire her! For everything! You cannot go wrong!

Kristen did a fantastic job on everyone in my wedding, including myself (the bride!). Everyone felt so beautiful. She did 7 different people and each and every one was amazed. She even gave me a second trial when I panicked last minute that I needed a more dramatic look! I would (and have) recommended her for any occasion that you need to feel fabulous for!

Kristen did my hair and make-up for my wedding and I could not have been more pleased. When I went for my hair trial she did a gorgeous low bun. Her hair skills are amazing! After some thought, I pictured my hair down on my wedding day so on the day of my wedding she did my hair down and brushed back on one side. My hair came out stunning! Along with my beautiful hair was my beautiful make-up. I love make-up and I was nervous to have someone else do my makeup not knowing if they could convey the look I really wanted. Kristen was able to deliver exactly what I wanted and it looked so beautiful...and it lasted all night! Kristen was so nice and accommodating and I highly recommend her for both hair and make-up...she is very talented!
