Katrina did an amazing, wonderful job styling my hair and applying my make-up for my wedding this past year. She was quick but efficient and very detail oriented. She has excellent style and taste. She also did the entire wedding party, but still treated me like the queen. I was impressed by how she managed her time by styling me, my four bridesmaids, mom and godmother. Everyone was extremely pleased with their hair and make-up whether they brought a picture or took her suggestions. I would highly recommend her services as she is attentive, artistic and professional.
A few letters from brides I have worked with . . .
I cannot recommend Katrina enough for wedding day hair and make-up, or for any occasion for that matter! I did not even bring Katrina a picture of what I envisioned my hair would look like for the big day, and she seemed to know exactly what I wanted and accomplished my vision perfectly, but also exceeded my expectations by adding her own flair. All of my bridesmaids were more than happy with their hairstyles as well.
Katrina makes you feel comfortable right away and truly listens and respects the look you are going for. I told Katrina that I wanted to have a natural look for my wedding day. The last thing I wanted was for my husband-to-be to not recognize who was walking towards him down the aisle. She achieved the perfect balance by using natural colors and blending them together beautifully. No dark lines or clown cheeks!
I have her to thank for encouraging me to try lashes for the first time, and I am so glad I did. I could definitely tell the difference in the pictures. They opened up my eyes and gave me a more feminine and full look, but no one could tell I had them on because of her professional technique.
I can honestly say that Katrina made my wedding day that much more special, and I highly recommend her to anyone and everyone.
Katrina made me feel so amazing on our wedding day! I honestly had the best hair of my life. I was so grateful to get to work with her! To have someone whom I was overly comfortable around - she has great energy and doing hair and make up is so personal and she seems to have one of those personalities that can connect with so many people, I really loved it.
She is so highly recommended by us. Thank you again, I couldn't have felt more confident and perfect on my wedding day, you're amazing!
Katrina made me feel the prettiest & most beautiful on my wedding day! She was very punctual and also made sure I looked my best throughout the day. Before my wedding, she made sure to ask me how I wanted my hair and makeup. She also suggested eyelash extensions and I am so happy she did! They made my eyes really pop, and throughout my honeymoon I didn't need to wear any makeup since my eyes looked so pretty. I have many soon to be brides ask me who did my hair and makeup and I am sure to highly recommend Katrina as she is a caring, punctual and creative make up artist/hair stylist.
I hired Katrina Michelle Christensen for our wedding at Carmel Valley Ranch on May 18th, 2013. My husband and I are from Minneapolis, so this was a destination wedding for us. From my first phone conversation with Katrina, she put me at ease as hair and make up is very important to me. She organized a spreadsheet for timing on the wedding day for me and my girls. Plus, when I arrived at the beginning of the week in Carmel, she came to my bridal suite to do my hair & makeup trial. I also purchased her eyelash extensions, which I LOVED! She is a master with eyelashes and they truly added so much. Plus, I am very emotional and it was nice to know that I wasn't going to have makeup running down my face on the day of my wedding.
When Katrina arrived the day of, she was extremely professional and it felt like I was hanging with a close friend. She made all of my girls look beautiful. Also, with all the chaos in my bridal suite that day she was able to keep me calm. I would highly recommend Katrina to any bride that is looking for a professional, talented and sweet make up artist/ hair stylist.
In short, Katrina was everything I could have asked for and more to make me feel comfortable and beautiful on my big day. When we met for a consult, she immediately understood the look I was going for and made it come to life. I wanted a soft, natural look, but of course didn't want my hair and makeup to look like it was just any other day. To say Katrina did a perfect job would be an understatement. I could not have imagined a more elegant and natural look.
As if making me look and feel beautiful wasn't enough, Katrina also did the makeup of 8 bridesmaids and two moms! I was truly amazed not only by her speed, but also by her ability to make each and every woman look her best.
I can't recommend Katrina enough!
Katrina was all I could have asked for and more! I have never in my life felt as beautiful as I did on my wedding day. My hair was stunning and my make up just perfect. I don't like wearing so much make up that you hardly look like yourself, and Katrina didn't do that. She made me look like a perfectly polished version of myself! She cared about my feedback, asked lots of questions and ensured that we achieved the exact look I was after.
At our practice session she took the time to style my hair three different ways to see which I liked best. When I asked, she also gave her honest opinion, which I loved. Her style is impeccable. I learned after our practice session to trust her completely. She knows what she is doing and is extremely good at what she does. She even put these amazing eyelash extensions on me which I loved!
If you are looking for a stylist in the Northern California area look no further than Katrina Michelle! I promise you will love her!
