Crizen did an incredible job for my wedding. Her professionalism, positivity, and creativity was exactly what I needed for my big day. She did my hair and makeup, as well as the hair and makeup for my mother and bridesmaids. I gave some of the girls some flexibility to do a... Read More variety of styles for the big day and Crizen was able to transform everyone's hair into something beautiful that reflected everyone's personality. During our trial session I asked for a "sexy ponytail" which she did an awesome job on, but after spending too many hours on Pinterest, I changed my mind last minute - and she made it happen! Even with a variety of hair accessories! The makeup looked flawless for everyone, it was a hot and humid day and even after dancing and taking pictures outside, everyone still looked fresh like they just had it done. No melting faces! Thank you again Crizen!!! You're the absolute BEST! I've recommended her to all of my fellow friends that are looking for hair and makeup for any event!

Crizen is amazing to work with. She is not only extremely professional and creative, but incredibly friendly and fun. I enjoyed my hair trial and liked what she did, but in between the trial and the wedding I saw some other hairstyles that I loved and asked if she could do it.... Read More Not only did she do it, she did it perfectly! Crizen is like the hair whisperer. She knew my hair texture and abilities, and probably even knew how I wanted it to look before I even did. You give her a lukewarm description, maybe a few photos like I did, and she works her magic. Same goes for makeup. I'm not very good at describing what I want I realized, but she knows what questions to ask you to ensure you love the makeup. I felt comfortable with it looking natural but was incredibly impressed with how she knows just how to work the makeup so it looks fabulous in photos. I had 5 bridesmaids and 2 MILs but we started on time and Crizen seamlessly finished everyone's hair AND makeup with time to spare. I don't know how she does it, but one by one each woman looked as lovely as can be and we spent much of the extra time gushing over how fabulous everyone looked and taking photos. Crizen truly is an artist and extremely creative especially when dealing with such a huge variety of hair types. You don't get married often (usually!) so if you want to look as stunning as you can be, work with Crizen because she will make you look and feel beautiful.

Would not recommend Senior Stylists

Reviewed on 10/12/2014 Annie N

I used Crizen's Senior Stylists for my wedding day and I would not recommend them for your wedding day. I coordinated everything with Crizen, however she was unavailable for my wedding day so I booked her senior stylists. A good friend of mine used Crizen for her wedding and... Read More had wonderful reviews of both the schedule, ease of the day and overall look of her bridal party. I wrongly assumed that I would have the same experience by working with Crizen’s Senior Stylists. In working with Crizen to arrange my wedding date, I told her many times how important the timeline and prompt schedule is to me. While she understood this priority, it did not occur on my wedding day. The make-up was the biggest issue – the schedule Crizen made allotted 30 minutes for per bridesmaid for make-up (with 1 make-up artist). However, the make-up artist took over 45 minutes per person resulting in nearly a 2 HOUR DELAY. No bride has an extra 2 hours on their wedding day – I certainly didn’t. While working on the 2nd bridesmaid of the day, I informed the make-up artist that she was already 40 minutes behind schedule and I asked her to be more prompt. She continued to take 45 minutes per person when only 30 was allotted. For hair - I had insisted on 2 hair stylist and Crizen scheduled 45min-1hour for each person. This was adequate and they were on schedule; however, the make-up delays caused some delays to their schedules as well. Also, I was personally frustrated that my stylist deviated from the hair trial and needed day-of decisions. It was very frustrating to be behind schedule and troubleshooting my new hairstyle. Additionally, I noticed in pictures that many of the bridesmaids’ hair became undone throughout the day. I expect up-do hair styles to stay put like a statue until the girl unpins it at the end of the night. Overall – this is the 1 and only vendor from my wedding that I cannot recommend. The schedule delays were beyond frustrating and I’m disappointed I paid for a pricey service only to have sub-par results. In bringing these issues to Crizen, she apologized profusely and offered salon, hair or make-up services for a future event. I do believe her apology was sincere, but she failed to follow through on her offer after I accepted her apology and provided my contact information. Therefore – just a disappointment and I would caution other bride’s considering using Crizen’s stylists.

Hair/Makeup at its Finest!

Her skill and knowledge is very apparent in all her work, but most of all what I loved about her was her confidence. As a bride you want to feel like things are under control. From the trial, photo shoot, and wedding day, I never once doubted her work. She did a fabulous job, and I received many compliments. My makeup and hair lasted all day and I felt flawless. Thank you for your amazing job!

Every bride wants to look picture perfect on her wedding day and Crizen made this dream a reality. I first hired Crizen to do my hair and makeup for engagement photos. According to friends and family, I had never looked more beautiful. (I have to agree!) The soft curls I... Read More wanted held up all day and the makeup was natural, yet enhanced what I consider my best features. I am African-American without a relaxer and finding someone who can execute perfect and contemporary hair styles can be a challenge.

She gave me, my mom, my two sisters, and my mother-in-law exactly what we each wanted. Everyone looked amazing, unique, and most importantly, their looks lasted all day and night. Crizen is now my only hair stylist and I appreciate the attention she gives each individual client. You are in and out quickly and don't have to give up half your day for an appointment. I would highly recommend Crizen for any and all future hair and makeup needs.

Every single member of the bridal party looked both *stunning* and wonderfully individual, and that's owed in no small part to Crizen. Logistically speaking, Crizen was very flexible and accomodating with our demands, which included a large group, very early morning start time, and additional afternoon touchups.

It's hard to justify paying close to $1K total for 4 ladies and 1 flower girl's hair and makeup, no matter how fantastic you look.
