Meet the Team! | Renee | Bridal Hair Designer

Continuing with our Meet the Team! blog posts, today I’d like to introduce you to Renee, one of the bridal hair designers on the Christy & Co. team. Renee joined our business in 2011, and I wouldn’t be exaggerating if I said she has probably done a good 3000+ bridal hairstyles for us since that day. Anyone who has had the pleasure of having Renee as their bridal hairstylist knows that she is incredibly sweet, incredibly talented, and incredibly FAST. It is almost a guarantee that we will hear “I can’t believe how fast you are!” said at every wedding she works. It’s not uncommon for her to finish 10 heads of hair in the same amount of time it takes me to do makeup on 4 faces. I joke around that she should wear a Wonder Woman cape, but honestly… she really should!

Renee received her cosmetology license in 2006, and has been working in the field ever since. She realized bridal hair design was her passion, and focuses almost solely on that, always looking to stay on top of the trends and perfecting her techniques. Here are some examples of the gorgeous bridal updos Renee has created for us through the years, ranging from “loose and effortless” to “sleek and elegant”:

Renee comes from an incredibly talented, artistic family! Her mom is also a hairstylist, and is always creating art in some form, whether it be painting and crafting, carving pumpkins for local jack-o-lantern spectaculars, or making Christmas decor. And her father makes incredible, one-of-a-kind creations out of wood and vines. The apple truly did not fall far from the tree with Renee! Creativity runs in her veins.

In her spare time, Renee loves to spend time with her family, which includes her husband, 9-year-old son, and 6-year-old daughter. She has a slew of pets, including chickens and goats. And she’s also a pretty fantastic shabby chic furniture refinisher!

I’ll finish this post with a few professional photographer images of Renee’s work from some of our past weddings. The wedding hairstyle is just one piece of the whole bridal puzzle, and it’s always incredible to see how it fits in with the rest of the wedding look!
