Hiring a Hair & Makeup artist for your wedding day can actually be pretty daunting. Not only do you need to be sure they completely GET your style and vision, making you look and feel fantastic on such an important (and heavily photographed) da...
y, but they also need to be able work under pressure (a timeline, chatty family/bridal party, terribly hot weather, you name it) like they were born to do it, all with a smile, keeping you cool and collected as you enter “Phase 1” of your wedding day.
Crystal with Golden Glow Beauty provides ALL THIS and so much more!! You’d be crazy not to hire her.
My wedding was a bit of an undertaking for even the most experienced vendor. Destination? Check. Need a boat to get there? Check. No cars on the island and multiple locations for getting ready, ceremony & reception? Check & Check. But Crystal’s response: “No problem, that sounds amazing!!” Girl, that first weight already came off my shoulders as most of the vendors I was contacted came back with a response along the lines of “ohhh….destination…where??? hummmm….let me check my schedule….”
Then came my hair & makeup trial. Even up until the day before, I still wasn’t 100% sure how I wanted to look. My parents were telling me on thing, I had TONS of different styles saved to Pinterest & Instagram….I was just a hot mess and honestly didn’t know what I wanted. Crystal took one look at a few different photos I was leaning toward, asked me a few simple questions, and without hesitation said “No problem, I totally get it” and went to work. All the while we talked about our weddings (as she had just gotten married herself!) and I just felt completely at ease and even stared to have a lot of fun! When the trail was over, I took a look in the mirror and was FLOORED! She was able to pull of the perfect natural/bridal look…and even with the perfect hair and flawless makeup, I still looked like myself which was my ultimate goal! (See, it’s even hard to explain now haha, thank God she just got it.) After the trail, she assured me that if there was anything I wanted to change, to not be worried and it wouldn’t be a problem at all. Though I appreciated the reassurance, knowing that things didn’t have to be 100% set in stone, I already knew she nailed the look. CHECK! One more thing off my to-do list.
Then the day of the wedding came. This girl hauled ALL her equipment around the the island, showed up early to setup and was ready to go with my girls RIGHT on schedule. (She even posted up the timeline for my wedding as well as her own timeline to make sure everyone would know who was on deck next - everything was just SO organized!) She handled all the different styles my bridesmaids requested, was able to talk to my family and keep the mood light and fun (which, I don’t know about you, but I feel like is serious multitasking) and when it came to my hair and makeup, we simply reconfirmed the look and she got down to it. We laughed, talked about the big day, and honestly just had so much fun! Best of all, she make a little touchup kit for me with my specific lip color she mixed just for me, hairpins, a blotting sheet and more - it was so handy!!
Long (looong) story short: I know there are SO many options out there for Hair & MUA’s especially in Southern California.
Let me do you a favor: Hire Crystal.
She will exceed ALL your expectations, making you look & feel absolutely fabulous!!
