Kensington Makeup artists was established in 2008 by Holli Chris, a certified makeup artist and studio hair stylist from the Makeup Designory in Los Angeles, CA. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Holli moved to Phoenix to start a bridal beauty team specializing in true artistry combined with a concierge level of coordination and customer service. In 2011 Holli wanted to create a bridal beauty destination offering the same high quality services at a more accessible price and location, and provide a home base for Kensington. Enter Park Avenue Blow Dry Salon and Nail Bar- a one stop shop for all your beauty needs. The perfect backdrop for bridal and bachelorette parties, offering our most popular services: blowouts, makeup, manis and pedis. Let us prep you for the big day! We are a full service salon providing cut/color, waxing, lash extensions and more, to get you looking camera ready for the big day. Oh and don't forget all of our brides receive 10% off these services!
NOTE FROM HOLLI CHRIS:
What do a Masters In Neuroscience from King's College London and a Certification in Makeup Artistry have to do with each other? Good question, I'm still trying to come up with something cleaver. All I can say is that my passion for spreadsheets and lipstick has fueled my success in the business of beauty. Nothing is more rewarding than making someone look and feel amazing on a day they will cherish forever. I hand select and train all of our artists to ensure we can accommodate all of your beauty needs, no matter how big or small your group is. And we don't stop just there, providing amazing customer service to guide you through the process of planning is definitely a top priority. Chances are, this is the first time you have ever planned a wedding - we know that, so leave it up to our years of experience to provide you with the beauty coordination you need. We look forward to working with you on your special day. Contact Us to see how we can get you on the path to bridal beauty today! - Holli
