Unfading Beauty

by kristen


My name is Kristen Buckwalter, and I am thrilled for your visit!  I would love to share a little bit of myself, as well as the heart behind my business.

First and foremost, I am a stay-at-home wife and mother of five!  I received my cosmetology license in 2004, and have been blessed with the flexibility it offers to enable me to focus on my family first. 
In 2011, I decided to solely focus on special occasion hair styling and makeup artistry. It has always been a favorite of mine, but with each year since I have grown to love it more and more!  Specializing in weddings and other events has allowed me to do what I love most in cosmetology, and also gives me incredible freedom to remain the wife and mom I need to be for my family.

I have such a passion for young women, and for seeking the beauty of the hearts of my clients!
As women especially, we are constantly fed lies from the media, television, movies and magazine covers of what defines beauty.  The mission of my business is to run against the lies of this world, and use my gifts to bring out the UNFADING beauty of a woman-the beauty that makes her special, unique, and the apple of her Creator’s eye.
I absolutely love working with brides and being a part of their special day.  I find it an incredible honor to be involved in preparing a bride for her husband, and I strive to do it in a way that brings peace and comfort to any wedding-day-jitters.
I also have come to love working with photographers and their clients!  Whether it’s an engagement shoot, a senior shoot, or any other portraits, it’s a joy for me to bring a little more confidence in the client on the set.
