Krystal | Hair designer & Makeup Artist
Studio Manager Krystal is a passionate and talented wedding hairstylist and makeup artist. 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 beauty was a specialty and would not dare let her god given talent go to waste.

Why a wedding beauty expert?
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.
