Krystal is a passionate and talented wedding hairstylist. She began her career as a licensed cosmetologist in 2001. The majority of her professional experience as a stylist has been working in high-end/prestige salons in Bethlehem, PA and Manhattan, NY and Baltimore, MD. Her divine talent has granted her the opportunity of working several consecutive years backstage in New York Fashion Week for some of the top designers, such as Farah Angsana Couture Paris, 2Xist, Loris Diran, Poltock and Walsh to name a few.
In 2005 she developed a great love and passion for the wedding beauty industry. She was asked by a co-worker to travel on-site and provide wedding hair services for two bridal parties in one day. This was a part of the beauty industry she never considered pursuing until she saw the look of amazement from the bridal party members. She then knew that wedding hairstyling was a specialty and would not dare let her god given talent go to waste.

I have done it all in the beauty industry from photo shoots, fashion shows, and commercials. I was also featured in several magazines including Bridal Star and Lehigh Valley Social for my bridal work, but none of this beats the creation and transformation I provide for the brides I work with. It is a great honor and privilege to be a part of one of the most important days of someones life. This is a position I take very seriously and I do it with perfection.
After graduating cosmetology school in 2010, Angela, began assisting for Krystal in wedding day hairstyling. She developed a strong passion for styling hair and making hair glamorous for the wedding day. In 2011 Angela joined Bridal Beauty Associates as a primary stylist and promises to meet your hairstyling needs on your wedding day in a professional fashion. Angela says that, " Being a wedding day hairstylist helps me to remain creative and artistic while achieving the look for your Wedding Day, I promise to provide prompt and professional services to make your day stress and worry free."
"They are pros at hair/makeup and made me, my bridesmaids and mom look and feel beautiful!" -Katie 7/8/13
Growing up the question was always "What do you want to be when you grow up?" My answer was always a hair stylist. In 2001 I was accepted into the cosmetology program at Milford mill academy. In 2005 my dream became a reality receiving my cosmetology license was a great accomplishment I turned a lifelong dream into a career. I love the excitement of meeting people and learning new things about the industry. I take pride in making people feel beautiful.
As my career developed I took interest in the bridal industry. My goal in this industry is to make every bride I come in counter with feel special. What other day should a woman feel the most special other than her wedding day. I look forward to servicing and being a part of your special day!
