Best decision for my wedding--flawless hair and makeup

Reviewed on 10/02/2014 Emily M

Christy and her team are the absolute best. Hair and makeup was my most researched vendor (I must have e-mailed dozens of possibilities...) and I knew my bridal party and I would be in great hands when I excitedly chose her team. While I don't wear too much makeup (except for... Read More events), I definitely know what I like and knew I needed the perfect entourage. The trial makeup was beautiful-and from it, I knew exactly what I liked and hoped to alter slightly. The airbrush makeup is incredible--totally flawless, so NATURAL, and truly sweat-proof. I get warm very easily and it was one of THE most humid days outside on our wedding day (just my luck.) My guests told me how amazing I looked all night long (the makeup didn't streak or come off) and the photos look so good. If you're deciding on eyelashes--do it; all of my bridesmaids ended up getting them even though only half had originally thought they would. What's even better, the women were SO wonderful to spend the early afternoon with...we laughed and ate and the sleepover party atmosphere calmed my nerves. You'll feel like a celebrity VIP. Renee is an updo genius--she created different hairstyles for all of us, fixing mine until I was 100% happy--and Christy and Alexandra made us feel like the most gorgeous bridal party that ever existed. :) I have never looked better or felt so beautiful.


I never felt so amazing!

I am typically a no makeup, t-shirt and jeans type of girl. I really need to be doing something fancy to get all dolled up. But when it came to my wedding I wanted to look and feel beautiful. I originally came across Christy while searching through dozens of makeup artists and... Read More their portfolios. Christy's was the only one that jumped out to me. We were in contact for over a year on and off based on how many of my girls wanted their hair and makeup done and who changed their minds and then changed them back again. She was excellent every step of the way. On my big day she and her team were actually 15 minutes earlier than scheduled. Everyone was so friendly and did such excellent work. My makeup held up ALL day which completely surprised me. I have super super oily skin and was in fear of it melting off. But nope! 2 am and I was in the shower washing everything off because it lasted for over 12 hours! I would recommend Christy and her team to anyone! All of my girls looked AMAZING. Personally for me I couldn't believe how great I looked when they were done. I never could have imagined looking so beautiful. My husband said that he almost cried when he saw me. Who could ask for more? I never felt as beautiful as I did on the day of my wedding and Christy was a huge part in that.

My bridemaids looked stunning! The make-up was perfect and exactly what I envisioned. Their hair was so perfectly curled that their over all look was simply ethereal. I could not have asked for a better job done. My ladies only had lovely things to say about the staff as well ❤

I cannot recommend the team at Christy & Co enough, especially for large wedding parties! We had LeeAnne and Alexandra for makeup, and Renee for hair for 11 women (8 bridesmaids, me, and the 2 moms). Everything went so smoothly and there never seemed to be any rush- in fact,... Read More Renee finished hair for 11 people with plenty of time to spare! I had also decided to change the style I wanted from the trial, and Renee was able to work with the photos I brought that day - my hair stayed in place the whole time and I was so happy with how it turned out. Alexandra and LeeAnne did an amazing job with the makeup - everyone looked flawless throughout the whole night. They were also able to accommodate some last minute mishaps and help us out - my brother was a groomsman in the wedding party and showed up with a black eye, and Alexandra worked her magic on that so you couldn't see anything (haha- thanks Alexandra)! Christy was very professional and great to work with, always following up to check in and make sure things were working out. If I could go back I wouldn't change a thing - thank you all!

I don't even know where to begin with Christy and her team as I am speechless with their work on my wedding day.

Christy and her team are EXTREMELY talented and I have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day because of them. They are friendly, efficient, and comfortable to be around. We stayed on track and on schedule throughout the entire wedding day and they were always on top of things. They made the getting ready process so stress free.. All of my girlfriends and mothers loved her entire team and were all so happy with how their hair and makeup came out. I on the other hand was completely in awe when I saw what they did with my hair and make-up. I had people coming up to me throughout the entire night of my wedding asking about my hair and how incredible it looked. If you are thinking about choosing Christy and her team, do not even think twice!! You will be beyond happy that you chose them and trust me you will look absolutely stunning on your wedding day and in your wedding photos.

Christy and her team are the absolute best. When I started my search my hair and makeup I knew I wanted someone who had many positive testimonials and that led me straight to Christy & Co. Through hair and makeup trials the whole team heard and patiently adjusted anything I... Read More needed to make sure my vision of how I wanted look on my wedding day was perfect. I typical wear very light makeup and wanted to look natural and not overly done up for my outdoor wedding. My makeup was exactly what I wanted, natural and the airbrush makeup was light and perfect. It felt like you were wearing nothing but provided except coverage. I woke up with a surprise blemish on my jawline and Christy did not even flinch. The airbrush makeup completely covered it and you could not even tell! My wedding was a warm July day and my makeup held up all night! I was so pleasantly surprised with the staying power! I never once worried about my makeup or how it looked, and I feel that is a true testament to how confident I was in the services. I felt truly beautiful on my wedding day. The team was so kind and professional, my family and bridesmaids continue to compliment the services from the wedding day. They are the best you can get!

I used Alexandra for my makeup and Chelsea for my hair. Both did wonderful work and stayed cool, calm, and collected during the stressful moments in the bridal suite day-of. I ended up having two makeup trials because I was unhappy with my look after the first one, and Alexandra...

I appreciated their openness to feedback and willingness to put in that extra time to make sure everything was perfect. There were 7 of us getting hair and makeup done on the actual wedding day, and everyone's lasted 12+ hours (including many hours of dancing!). Only potential downside for Boston brides is that trials have to take place in the studio in Sturbridge, which is a bit of a trek.

Christy and her gals were a wonderful addition to my wedding-day team. In addition to doing my hair and make-up, they did that of six bridesmaids, two moms (mine and my husband's!), and my husband's brother's girlfriend. Christy, another make-up artist (whose name I forgot!),... Read More and Renée (the hair stylist) arrived right on time and actually finished early. Everyone loved their looks, and each one was distinct -- it's not like they put the same face on everybody. Everyone's hair and make-up truly stayed on for the ENTIRE afternoon and evening, i.e. about 12 hours, from approx. 2 PM to 2 AM! I dealt only with Christy and Renée, and they were great listeners, solicited feedback after my pre-booking trials, and were more than happy to make changes in light of my comments, including a day-of moment of indecision about lip color. Highly recommend!

She even checked in before my wedding to say congrats :) I had six bridesmaids, my mother, my aunt/officiant, and myself getting ready -- which seems like it would be chaotic! However, we could all enjoy ourselves while getting ready, and were as relaxed as possible in anticipation for the day ahead - all thanks to the professionalism, friendliness, and talent of the Christy & Co team. Renee did everyone's hair and it all turned out amazing. My family is blessed/cursed with a lot of hair, and it still held for the whole night! Alexandra and Leanne did all of our makeup, and we received compliments all night! The airbrushing held up so well that I didn't even need any touch-ups! I absolutely adore these girls, and would hire them again in a heartbeat if I ever needed hair & makeup services again. One of my best friends/bridesmaids is using them for her wedding next September - and I'm so excited to see them again when I'm not panicking as an almost bride :) Thanks so much for everything, Christy, Leanne, Alexandra, and Renee! I can't wait to share some pictures with you!

They each had a different style in mind and she executed them all amazingly.

Christy did our make-up and I can honestly say I've never seen any of us look better! She listened to the color palette requests from me as well as the individual style of each girl and did absolutely amazing work. From the trial run that my Mom, Mother-in-Law and I did this summer to the wedding weekend, everything was perfect and Christy was so great to work with.

Since I first started in makeup artistry, my heart has belonged to bridal. That was 21 years ago, and I am as much in love with what I do today as I was back then! The feeling I get after making someone feel like their most beautiful self, when they get tears in their eyes after looking in the mirror for the first time, to know our brides love our work enough to want us to be a part of one of the biggest days in their lives - it is an amazing feeling. We have had the pleasure of doing that for over 700 brides in the past 8 years, and we look forward to sharing that with many more.
