Kristy and her team did the most amazing job on my bridal hair and makeup, as well as that of my bridal party, on my wedding day. When I first met with Kristy for my hair and makeup trial, I had a couple ideas of styles that I liked, and she was able to listen to my suggestions and create a look that was far above and beyond my expectations. She is so personable, funny, and talented; you could not ask for a better hair and makeup stylist to help you feel your absolute best on your big day. They showed up early on the day of the wedding, and worked as a team to get each of us (8 in total) looking completely gorgeous in a timely fashion. I have never seen bridesmaids with more detailed and stunning hair and makeup looks than what this team produced for my girls. And as for me, I have never felt more beautiful, which is how every bride deserves to feel on their wedding day. I cannot count the amount of compliments we all received on our hair and makeup, all thanks to Kristy and her team! She is undoubtedly the best in the metro Orlando area and you will be forever grateful when you book her and see your results.

I am speaking on behalf of an out-of-state bride. I loved loved LOVED having Kristy do my hair and makeup for my wedding. She and I communicated over the phone and also via email about the vision I had for my look. Kristy 100% grasped what I was looking for. She was totally on point and understood my needs. I know this not only from our conversations, but from the result of my hair and makeup day-of. My hair was done first and then after the makeup was on and it all came together, I was SO INCREDIBLY HAPPY! Oh my gosh I couldn't believe how perfect the look was. We didn't even have a practice session and she nailed it.
On a side note, I want to share that my nerves were getting the best of me when I woke up alone in my hotel room the morning of our wedding day. I was quite anxious/nervous. I didn't know how to calm down. When Kristy and her team arrived (on time), that's when my nerves settled and my anxiousness morphed into happiness and excitement. She really turned the day around for me.
And one more thing I'd like to mention! I have very straight and stubborn eyelashes. I typically have to curl them everyday in order for them to look pretty. And by the end of the day, they usually fall back into their normal straightness. I reeeally wanted my lashes to be bold and curly so I had Kristy apply individual lashes. Those lashes are AMAZING! I couldn't believe the look she was able to achieve without using an eyelash curler. She applied them one by one until the desired look was achieved. And the lashes lasted through the next day. My eyes were my favorite part of the overall look. I was so delighted.
Kristy has all the goods in one. She does fantastic hair, beautiful makeup, and best of all, she listens. I truly feel quite fortunate to have had her for my wedding. You're the best Kristy. Thank you so much :)

What an experience! Without a doubt, Kristy and her crew are the BEST. I feel so lucky to have found them! They were so much fun, professional, relaxed, and extremely supportive on my wedding day. Once my make up was completely finished, I had a moment and started crying. I was missing my father who had passed away and Kristy comforted me during this time. She was very calming and so incredibly supportive to me. I was so worried because she worked so hard on making me look so beautiful and here I was crying right after she finished. She reassured me that she would make sure my makeup would be perfect no matter what and not to worry. With a quick touch up, I was all done. I looked at myself in the mirror and couldn't believe my eyes. I looked absolutely beautiful. I told her the look and feel I wanted for my hair & makeup and she nailed it! My hair and makeup were better than I had ever imagined. I felt the best I have ever felt in my entire life!!!! I'm so thankful to of had Kristy and her team a part of my special day. I can't thank them enough for everything!!! They are so amazing at what they do. Hands down, Kristy and her team are incredibly talented and truly are the best! I wish I could have her do my hair and make up everyday!!! I will definitely be using her in the future! My advice to other brides would be to not think twice. Definitely book with Kristy. I promise you will never regret it!!!!!

Prior to my wedding, I had searched around for a makeup artist, and I went to meet her to have a trial and it was a HORRIBLE experience! I was devastated and I did not know what to do. Thankfully, a friend recommended Kristy's Artistry and I was THRILLED with my trial! Kristy made me feel beautiful again! She is so understanding and listens to everything you want and the look you are going for during your special day! Kristy and her team are absolutely amazing and gave each of my bridesmaids a special look that allowed them to stand out from one another. My hair and makeup was worth EVERY PENNY! Every bride should feel beautiful on her special day, and that is something that Kristy and her team gave to me, which is something no one will ever be able to take away from me! I cannot stop staring at my pictures and my video and see how beautiful I looked! I cannot wait to use them again the future for other special events! My husband could not stop looking at me (he was practically drooling between my hair and makeup, and he was so pleased that I did not look "cakey" or fake) Thank you Kristy and her team for making me feel BEAUTIFUL!! xoxo

Kristy and her team were amazing! They arrived on time and did hair and makeup for myself, my bridesmaids and Mom. Airbrush makeup was included in the price, looks awesome in person and even better in pictures! Her team worked well with all the different looks my bridesmaids asked for and each girl looked STUNNING! My hair was exactly how I imagined and held well all day, even with some rain! I cannot say enough about how much fun Kristy and her team were, which really helped make the wedding day morning so smooth! All the stylists were very talented and I couldn't be more pleased! If you want to have a stress free wedding day and look absolutely phenomenal, you want to chose Kristy's!

Kristy and her team are wonderful to work with. The girls from her team were so sweet and personable. They were willing to work with and accommodate all the different styles ideas each bridesmaid had and they nailed the style I was looking for as a bride. Everyone looked gorgeous and I would certainly work with Kristy and her team again! They helped make my big day perfect!

I debated between hiring someone for hair/makeup or just doing it myself. Well, I'm so glad I chose to use Kristy's Makeup. Gigi was my makeup/hair stylist. She made me feel beautiful on my wedding day. I feel like I have a face that doesn't work well with makeup, and I don't usually wear much makeup. But I wanted to look good in my wedding pictures. I went to the trial with Gigi though and she managed to make me look great! On the day of, she did fantastic and all my guests commented that I looked beautiful. I got my wedding photos back also, and I could not be happier with how I looked on my special day. Now I won't look back on my photos and have any regrets. If you aren't sure if you should hire a makeup artist/hair stylist, you should definitely book a trial with Kristy's team (I can vouch for Gigi.) Thank you Gigi :)

I was so SOOO very happy with my wedding day hair/airbrush makeup from Kristy's. Her team was excellent, and all of my ladies/mothers loved the way they looked. They are extremely professional, attentive, and kind. I was grateful to feel so incredibly at ease on my big day, because I knew we were all in such good hands. I am so glad I tried the airbrush with my hairstyle at our initial consultation/trial. My hair and makeup stayed set all day of my wedding-painless. I am so grateful to have stumbled across their glowing reviews, and now how happy I am to leave one myself.

I am so happy that I chose Kristy's Makeup Artistry & Hair Design Team to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. Gigi did such a wonderful job on both my Mom and I and Yulia did a wonderful job on my bridesmaids. I got so many compliments from people. I was nervous the morning before the wedding, but Gigi is so much fun and made me laugh so I totally forgot about my nerves. I truly felt like a beautiful bride on my wedding day thanks to Gigi. After my first trial, I changed my mind and decided I wanted to do an undo and Kristy and Gigi were so quick to accommodate my schedule so that I could come for a second trial. I would recommend this team to any bride!

Hiring Kristy's Makeup Artistry & Hair Design Team for my wedding day was one of the best choices I made leading up to the wedding! I had a noon wedding which meant they had to wake up VERY early to make it on time for hair and makeup! They arrived at the perfect time and finished everything on time as well! They did mine and my mom's hair and makeup. I loved my look. My makeup looked really natural (which is what I asked for). I was afraid I would need extensions for the hair style I wanted and they made it perfect without any added extensions! So awesome! My mom's hair is pretty short and they made it look so long like she had twisted it all up in the back! EVERYONE mentioned how young she looked with her makeup and how long it made her hair seem. I felt like a beautiful bride and I know my mom felt like a beautiful mother of the bride. I could tell she had more confidence and felt wonderful about herself all day long, which meant SO much to me. I would definitely recommend them to anyone I know who is getting married! Such sweet girls and a wonderful team!
P.S. My husband shed a tear as I was walking down the aisle and I KNOW that my lovely hair and makeup done by Kristy's team was one of the reasons. I am so thankful for their hard work.

I used Kristy's amazing team for hair design. They were all so nice and great at what they do! Natalie did my hair and it looked awesome! She did exactly what I wanted! The 3 ladies that did my bridesmaids hair did an excellent job as well! Everyone was super happy with the results. The team arrived on time and were extremely professional and flexible (able to work in the small space that we had).

Kristy and her team did an absolutely stellar job on my hair and make-up, and the hair for my bridesmaids and MOTB. I hired her to do the hair and make-up for my wedding in Ocala, FL and she and her partner drove to the location (1.5 hours) and arrived on time at 9 AM. I had photos of ideas for my hair and make-up, along with some commentary on my vision of what I wanted, and the final look I achieved was far better than I could have imagined. She took everything I said into consideration and gave me exactly the look that I had envisioned. My girls all wanted different styles and the updos and side-swept styles were beautiful as well. All considered Kristy and her team get 5 out of 5 stars for incredible service.

Everything I have to say about Kristy and her team is nothing but amazing. The work they do and their professionalism is one of a kind. When you are dishing out so much money on your wedding day, you really just want to make sure it's worth it. Especially since it's the most important day in your life, you want to make sure you look and feel your best. Kristy and her team certainly know how to do that. It started by my request for a trial two weeks before the wedding and then their kindness of scheduling a team to do hair and makeup for myself and three other people. My husband and I had a long honeymoon trip ahead of us leaving at 3:30am the morning after our evening wedding. Then after two layovers and over 20 hours of flying, we finally arrived to our destination. My hair was in the exact same place as it was when Stacey did it the day of the wedding and every false lash on my eye lids were still there, I was amazed. It was an up-do too so you would think that it would be all messy from the plane rides but nope, Stacey clearly knew what she was doing and that in itself proves that both the hair and makeup quality is over 100%!!! I will always recommend them and keep them in mind for future special occasions.

Planning a destination wedding and not being able to do a trial run with your hair & make up team can be pretty scary, especially when you ship extensions two weeks before and the US Postal Service can't locate them until two days before your wedding. However, Kristy was extremely responsive, professional and helped ease my stress level by offering alternative options. The day of my wedding her team was on point and made me look & feel beautiful. They were able to match the pictures on my phone and transform me into the beautiful bride I always dreamed of being. Thank You!

Kristy's Makeup Artistry & Hair Design Team did an amazing job at my wedding. I had several bridesmaid and myself get makeup done. I also got my hair done with Kristy's Team and they did a great job. The team made us feel very comfortable and were down to earth. The quality of work was top notch. I would recommend Kristy's Makeup Artistry to anyone who want to look perfect for their special day.

I had my hair and make up done with Kristy and her team for my sister's wedding and was so happy with everything they did that when it came time for my wedding there was no question who I would use. Kristy and her team do beautiful work, they transform you into exactly what you want to look like for your special day.
Having your hair and make up done by Kristy and her team is like hanging out with the girls getting ready. They are nice, funny, and full of great stories!

Kristy and her team were absolutely awesome! I am not one that has ever gotten my make up done before... and I've had some not-so-good up do's. But I have to say Kristy and her team were so easy going, professional and definitely gave me one less thing to worry about on my big day. I absolutely loved the way my hair and make-up turned out, and not one of my 6 bridesmaids were disappointed. I even recommended the team to my best friend who got married in July, and again I no one was disappointed!

Working with Kristy and her team was the perfect way to start my day. The ladies were very professional and helped keep me at ease. Kristy gave me some tips prior to the wedding day so that my hair would look just how I wanted it. I followed her advice and my hair came out perfect. I am very happy that I went with a good reputable company. They were there on time and got us all ready on time...even with some adjustments being made. The week of the wedding I added people to the amount of services we needed. I spoke to Stacey on the phone bc Kristy was out of town and Stacey was also fantastic to speak to. They are really a great company and great team. I can't say I'm the easiest person to work with - but they were so so so amazing and reassuring with the whole process. All my bridesmaids and family were very happy with their make up. Thanks again Kristy!!

Kristy and her team of professionals are truly amazing!!! I was comfortable throughout my whole wedding planning and when it came to the event day, I was still relaxed. Kristy and her team of artists showed up on time and provided quality service in making sure that my bridesmaids, mom, mil, and aunts were ready for the big day as much as I was! Kristy is so personable and you can't ask for a better person to be doing your make-up on your big day!!

I cannot say enough good things about Kristy and her team! I loved them all! I worked with Stacey W for my wedding and my bridesmaids worked with a few other members of her team. They were all FABULOUS!! I got married in June, and boy was it hot, but my makeup held up flawlessly until the end of the night - you couldn't even tell I was sweating! The way they did my makeup was just perfect and everything I wanted - I felt beautiful and glamorous - everything a bride wants to feel on her wedding day. Thank you Kristy, Stacey, and team!!
