I contacted Chris for my Wedding hair/Make up and from the first point of contact she was prompt in responding to me about EVERYTHING! Be it email, phone calls, she was always there for questions or anything I needed. Chris was also flexible when it came to doing our trial run in our home because I have small children, so doing a trial run in her space would have been challenging. When she came to do the trial run and the actual Wedding day I was very impressed with her promptness on arrival and knowledge of the art of Make up and hair, she was VERY detail oriented and quite the perfectionist! (Which is what you want with your hair and make up on your Wedding hair) Another thing I really liked about Chris was how friendly and personable she is, it's nice to feel like it's your own Mother primping and curling your hair and that's how Chris makes you feel. I really can't say enough good things about Chris Wildschut and her services, I would recommend her to all my friends who need the services she offers.
Chris did such a wonderful job on my hair and makeup for my wedding!! I felt and looked so beautiful. She is very professional and very warm and comforting to your needs! She met all my expectations.
I wouldn't look any further...Chris is the best!!!....not to mention a great person!!!!
Chris was abosolutely amazing. From our initial meeting and follow up emails, to the trial run, to the wedding itself. Chris was very responsive to all my inquiries, and was exceptionally accomodating. The trial run felt like an afternoon with a girlfriend rather than a test run of hair/makeup and vendor interview :) The day of the wedding, Chris was on time and got things off to a great start. She was very flexible when we had to move from the hotel room we were in to the meeting room the hotel provided to us (this because we needed the hotel room for showers, etc), and when one of the members of the wedding party was late (and no one else could move into the slot because they were managing to their appointment times) - Chris took it all in stride, helped keep everyone calm, and made it work. We made changes to the schedule deleting some and adding others - again, Chris took it all in stride. She even chose to come to the wedding venue just to make sure after we all got dressed that we still had our hair in tact, and to touch up our lipstick. She was a big cheerleader, and put us all at ease, even those who were not initially comfortable with having their hair and makeup done :) I highl recommend her!
She is amazing! I went to Chris with one style in mind she did me up and it was great... The next day I changed my mind on what I wanted like most girls and brides for that matter and she took the new idea and ran with it. I felt like the most beautiful bride ever. Chris was so patient with me and made sure I felt comfortable and beautiful. I absolutely loved how she did my hair and make-up. I would suggest bring pictures of what you want so that she has something to work off of. Other than that have fun at your wedding and Chris will be there to help you with anything. Chris also did up my mom, mom-in-law and maid of honor and they looked fabulous. Oh Chris even helped my dad and my husband with shine issues for the photos. The pictures came out amazing with her help.
Chris was an excellent makeup artist and hair stylist to me. I got rave reviews from everyone at the wedding. I usually don't wear any make up so I was worried how I would like with a lot of make up. She gave me a "natural" look. I did a practice session first to see how I would like her work. She was open to my ideas. She was also very helpful at the wedding, making sure I looked great at the ceremony, and the photographs, and ready for the reception. I really appreciated her experience and support on the wedding day. I highly recommend Chris.
Having Chris do my hair and make up and my wedding day was an absolute wonderful experience and pleasure! She was easy going from the first moment we met, absolutely open for anything, extremely professional and a calming influence on that important day in my life.
Chris and I had an initial meeting to discuss ideas and visions that I had and we spend hours "trying on" make up and hair-does. She never got tired of my changing ideas and with her life long experience in the beauty business was the perfect consultant. On the actual wedding date, she came earlier to help out where ever she could and even managed to squeeze in an extra guest who had a hair disaster that day as well as fixing my maid-of-honor's butchered hair cut. Chris was a rock through it all and even decided to stay until after the ceremony to give me a little touch up. Thanks to her I look absolutely stunning in our wedding pictures and to this day people comment on the beautiful job she has done.
But what left me with an even bigger impression than her professionalism and expertise was Chris' soft and kind nature, her willingness to go the extra mile and to really become a part of that intimate, private and joyous moment in my life. She made that special day glow a little more! Thanks Chris!!!
