  • Chrissy at Special Occasion Hair Design was SO great to work with, she was very accommodating of my changing needs, hopped right onto a phone call with me to clearly talk everything through and answer all of my questions. She gave me great advice during the wedding planning process and was very responsive and professional.

  • Chrissy and her assistant were amazing on my wedding day, as well as at my hair trial. She works with you to pick the most flattering style then works her magic to enhance it. My hair and makeup held perfectly all night and I felt like the best version of myself! Super sweet, extremely professional. All of my girls looked fantastic.

  • As a bride, there is no other woman you want doing your hair and makeup the day of your wedding. Chrissy is INCREDIBLE. Not only did she make every single one of my bridesmaids look and feel beautiful, she made me feel like a princess, without needing a ton of direction (as I was unsure as to what would look best on me). Chrissy and her team were not only there early but they kept us so on track - we even had an extra hour to just relax! Not only is she talented, but she is so kind and accommodating. I had to plan my wedding while out of state and she worked around my crazy schedule to make sure I had everything I needed. She even assisted me in styling my dress with accessories. I cannot recommend her highly enough, ladies - if you want the best on your wedding day you need Chrissy and her team!

  • I 100% highly recommend working with Chrissy and Special Occasion Hair Design. Not only is Chrissy professional, knowledgeable, fun, and kind, she is AMAZING at her craft. As a wedding planner, it's very important for me to work with and only recommend vendors that are the best in the industry. I want to make sure they are going to deliver the best-in-class experience I want for my couples. Chrissy delivers that and so much more. She has a well-defined process for working with each couple, takes diligent notes, and executes flawlessly. Every couple I know that hires S.O.H.D is so happy that they did. In addition to her process, Chrissy is truly an artist and works quickly. She is thoughtful, creative, innovative, and makes sure her clients look the best that they can on their special day, whether it's for a wedding or a photo shoot or something else. Her pricing is more than fair for the service she delivers. I cannot wait to work with her on many future events. If she is available on ... Read more

  • Chrissy is phenomenal. She's a great person and has a great business for brides who are doing non-traditional venues. We were getting married at a local museum and couldn't drive 30 minutes to get to my normal salon (which wasn't open on our wedding day anyway!!) and then 30 minutes back before pictures. Chrissy travels and boy am I glad she did. She was wonderful from consult to trial to the morning of. Everyone loved her and her team. I will gladly recommend this company to anyone who will listen.

  • I cannot say enough good things about Special Occassion Hair Design. We used them for our wedding this past weekend and everything was perfect! Chrissy and Dena did an incredible job on hair and makeup for myself and my bridal party. They are so professional and personable and do a wonderful job on hair and makeup. They also listened to each girls requests and made sure that everyone loved their hair and makeup and was comfortable. I am so happy we booked them for our wedding, and highly recommend them! They are wonderful!!

  • For my sisters wedding this past October, we wore gold sequin, floor length gowns. I wanted dramatic hair and makeup to complete the look. Chrissy did a non standard smokey eye, at 7:00 in the morning, that looked flawless at midnight. My downstyle hair was exactly what I envisioned yet couldn't articulate yet she just knew what I meant! A seasoned pro that I would not think twice about hiring in the future.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. It was wonderful working with you at your sisters wedding. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work outside of the typical realm of wedding makeup. You looked stunning in person and in the photos I've seen so far as well.

  • Chrissy is AMAZING!! Not only is she hilarious in a quiet and unsuspecting way, but she is SO extremely talented and put me at ease every time i spoke with her. She spent time discussing my skin (it's wacky and tricky to deal with because of dry spots/rosacea), my normal "every day" look, and my ideas for my wedding day look. She not only made me look flawless, but she did a fantastic job with my girls' makeup up too- I am slightly obsessed with makeup so I'm picky. My makeup lasted all day, all night, and well into the next day. No joke! Also, the week of my wedding Chrissy called me about a sudden personnel change when she didn't need to (I never would have known the difference so it was SUPER professional of her to inform me) and the sub she brought along to do bridesmaid hair made the girls look fantastic. I can't rave enough about how much talent Chrissy has- she made me feel absolutely gorgeous.

  • Chrissy and her team are truly spectacular! They are the best in the business. I have worked with the Special Occasion Hair Design Team twice, my sister's wedding and my big day. Both times were incredible! They are worth every penny. Chrissy will help design your perfect wedding look and answer any question you have. She was quick to respond to phone calls and emails. She was even willing to meet with me multiple times until my look was exactly what I wanted. Both my sister and I live out of town, which makes scheduling appointments difficult. Chrissy was more than happy to work around our schedules. If you want to feel beautiful as a bride, bridesmaid, mother of the bride; I recommend Special Occasion Hair Design!

  • Chrissy and her ladies were very professional and so kind. Chrissy was a pleasure to work with. It was wonderful knowing Chrissy would take care of me and my girls; I never had a doubt things would turn out exactly like I imagined. They were super organized; I especially appreciated the beauty schedule Chrissy created to get all my girls looking fabulous and on time! All my girls looked wonderful, hair and make-up looked perfect. Chrissy did a wonderful job with my hair and make-up, capturing exactly what I wanted with little direction. My make-up looks great all night long! I would certainly recommend Special Occasion Hair Design!

  • Crissy and the rest of the Special Occasion Hair Design team are awesome. From my trial to the day of my wedding Crissy was very accommodating. She answered all my questions and was very patient with me. I was not sure how I wanted my hair for my wedding so she took the time to go through pictures with me to figure out what would be perfect for my wedding day. She took every detail into consideration. I was nervous about my make up because typically I do not wear any, Crissy assured me everything would look natural. She was 100% correct, I felt beautiful. On the day of my wedding her and her team showed up early to our hotel room with everything you could imagine. It was very convenient that the Special Occasion Hair Design team was able to come to our location. They were nothing but professional. They did hair and make up for 7 bridesmaids plus my mother and me. Hair and make up started around 7 am and everyone still looked flawless by the end of the evening. I would recommend any on...

  • Chrissy is AMAZING! She made the entire process SO easy and fun! She is so knowledgeable and talented that I would not have trusted anyone else to style my hair and do my makeup on my wedding day! The Bridal Package is such a great value that includes a consultation and a trial before the big day. Other services for bridesmaids and mothers of the bride/groom are very reasonably priced as well. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Every bride looking for an enjoyable experience through and through pick Chrissy and her team!

  • I was looking forward to working with Chrissy on my special day. The hair and trail went well. Chrissy told me that it would look better on the wedding day since more time would go into it. After the trial I had a few suggestions of what works better for me like using primer. I was very disappointed in the outcome of the wedding day. My makeup and hair was exactly like the trail with no improvements, except a shadow color change. On the wedding day, we felt rushed and did not listen to the suggestions to implement on the wedding day. My hair was loose when she finished. The rest of the bridal party's makeup was plain and their curls fell before they even left. As they were going to depart, they said they would do touch-ups which never happened. I expected a lot more for the price. Highly disappointed in the hair and makeup for my special day. Will not be recommending them.

    I am terribly sorry to hear that you weren't satisfied with your services and wanted to reach out after receiving reviews on multiple platforms. I was so looking forward to working with you and your bridal party on your wedding day. After reading your review and your post trial notes, I'm left a bit confused. We arrived early to the venue, only to find that no one was there. We had absolutely no issue with the wait and proceeded up to the bridal suite, upon your arrival. We set up according to the venue and proceeded to work along with all of the girls. I started with your sister, who was on the fence with which style direction she wanted to go. We started with a half up style and when she decided that she wanted a full updo I accommodated fully. She and your mom discussed the final outcome and both agreed that it was "very pretty". We proceeded to work through the bridal party with full consults and taking styles into account, both the inspiration photos that you provided ahead of time along with each individuals comfort level with their personal styling. With each and every event that I work, I always ask each individual clients if they are happy with their style. Every one of the girls said that they were. When we proceeded to your hair and makeup, we discussed the color change of eye shadow that you were interested in, you agreed that was the direction that you wanted to go. In addition to that we went over the new skin care that you purchased at my recommendation, this moisturizer doubles as a "primer" and was used. As with your girls I asked multiple times if there were any changes that you were interested in making. You smiled and said I don't think so. At this point the photographer was there, things were getting a bit hectic due to concerns over a ladybug in your dress and other wedding day commotion. I finished your mother and then did "final touch ups", including a finish spray (hard hold spray) on each and every one of the girls. In no way were we intentionally rushing and only wrapped 30 mins early, which would have been the cushion time that I built in for any unforeseen circumstances. As I said, we are deeply sorry that you were not 100 percent satisfied with how things turned out and wish that you would have expressed them the day of the event.
