I started my professional journey in Malibu, and though I traded in California for the Yorkshire Dales 15 years ago, I still retain my love for effortless beauty.
I specialise in creating relaxed hair and makeup looks that are timeless, flattering and flawless. I love helping my clients explore their options in order to achieve bridal looks that are fresh, polished and elegant, without being fussy.
I love all sorts of styles, from Boho chic to Hollywood glam, but the most important element of any bridal look is the bride. The most important tool in my hair and makeup kit, is the skill of listening. I listen to you to help create the bridal look that is perfect just for you, and will allow you feel like you on your very best day.
I cannot recommend Chrys enough! She did hair and make up for myself and my bridal party and we were all so happy with the service.
Chrys made me feel at ease from the moment I met her. I felt I was in safe hands throughout the enquiry process, the trial and on the big day. She looked through several photos of different hairstyles with me and gave me exactly what I wanted! My make up was natural, as I'd asked, but also made me feel fantastic. She'd told me she would make me feel like 'the best version' of me and she really did!Sophie
Chrys is awesome! She did hair and make-up for my wedding, me and my three bridesmaids. I’m totally out of my comfort zone with make-up, but from the moment I met Chrys for the trial I was much more relaxed with her warm and bubbly personality (and the excellent cup of tea). I had no idea about what I wanted except some sparkle and she seemed know exactly what I wanted. It was very natural, but beautiful. I was speechless after looking in the mirror.
Chrys is so much more than just a make-up artist. Not only did a fab job on all our hair and makeup, she was very accommodating that morning, keeping a track of time, keeping us calm and getting everything done on a very tight schedule. I would recommend Chrys without hesitation to anyone that wants to feel special for any occasion. Thank you Chrys, I know where to come when I need to get glammed up again.
There is simply no-one like Chrys Chapman. As a bride I cannot tell you how important it is for someone to just understand what you have in mind and do everything they can to help guide you in the right direction to achieve it. Chrys will never try and make you have something you don't need but she will equally gently guide you away from anything which may not suit you. She LISTENS. And that may not sound like a revelation but it is and do you know why? Because Chrys genuinely cares. I honestly believe she makes every one of her brides and their tribe her friends for life because she is so great you don't want to lose her when the wedding is over. She wants to make you look and feel like the best version of yourself on your day. Not turn you into something you’re not. Chrys is all about complementing you, not changing you and that is what sets her apart from every other hair and make-up artist. I only wish I'd found her sooner.Aimmee
