Directory Beauty, Hair & Makeup in Christchurch
Whether you are wanting romantic or classic hair, natural or dramatic make up or something in between, we can work together accentuating your own unique look making your inner and outer beauty shine.
Based in Christchurch, my team and I travel New Zealand doing what we do best and are passionate about hairstyling and exquisite make up. Having worldwide training we attend the hair and make up expo in Sydney each year with amazing stylists from around the world.

We now sell the very own make up and skin care range we work with and love.
Looking and feeling amazing for your wedding, school ball, graduation, photo session or special event we will make it happen. We will travel to your home or wherever is convenient for you on your special day.
Krystle was a total gem to deal with right from the start, she was accommodating and gave me honest opinions of what she thought would suit me.
On the day she turned up with Cindy and we just had the best time she made me feel so comfortable and relaxed and we really did feel like we were being pampered and were princess’s for the day!
Would highly recommend Astonish Hair & Beauty.

Astonish Hair and Beauty were brilliant! Krystle & Bonnie did myself, my bridesmaids and mums hair and makeup for my wedding day.
She was so professional, experienced, organised and had great ideas! I started going to Krystle to my hair ready for the big day by getting it to the right colour and style and over those 6 months before it was great to be able to chat about any ideas and also have any wedding day questions answered.
Krystle made me feel so special and beautiful on my wedding day. We had alot of fun getting ready, Krystle and Bonnie were so relaxed and nothing was a problem for them. They also use lovely makeup and products.
I would definitely recommend Astonish Hair and Beauty to any bride, it was an amazing experience!

I new more of what I didn’t want than what I did want for my wedding day! To me the hair and makeup was just as important as my dress! I emailed Krystal and she was full of great advice of how to find the perfect look for my big day! I had two trials with her as we did change a couple of things and this was no problem at all. What I feel sets Krystal apart from other company’s I approached was her ability to make me feel special , like I was the only one , I never got from her ” just another bride ” attitude. She remained professional throughout the entire process and even though she made up 6 ladies that morning she never lost her happy and bubbly nature or her lovely smile! I would recommend Astonish hair and Beauty to any future bride .. In fact I already have !!

Krystle ensured my bridesmaids and I looked stunning for my special day. Looking back at the photos today brought a tear to my eye because we all really did look and feel beautiful. Krystle shows a genuine interest in her clients all the while remaining professional. Many thanks Krystle, it was a pleasure.

We had Astonish Hair and Beauty for both myself, my three bridesmaids and my mum. We had a fab time with them on our day and we so happy with the looks they provided.
I meet up with Krystelle afew times prior to talk over ideas, have a trial and get my hair colour to my liking, we discussed our ideas and came up with an awsome hair & makeup style.
Krystelle’s team were awsome on the day, the makeup lasted all day (even through the tears) and looked fabulous in the photos.
I can’t recommend the team at Astonish more!

Krystle did my Wedding Makeup and Hair. She did such a amazing job for myself, three bridesmaids and my gorgeous daughter as my flower girl. We all felt and looked like Princesses and our hair/makeup stayed perfect all day and couldn’t of picked a better person I highly recommend Krystle from Astonish Hair and Beauty.

As a photographer I spend a lot of time around hair an make up people, so I know who to call on when I want an immaculate look. For my wedding there was no one else on the list but Astonish. I have worked with them on photo shoots and knew I wouldnt trust my look for my wedding to anyone else. Astonish is run by Krystle and she is a true professional. Her and Bonnie are truly amazing. No only do they do a fantastic job they also know how to keep you smiling and relaxed throughout the process, and always give great advice on what works and what doesnt. I would totally recommend them to anyone, and will continue to use them on high fashion photo shoots as often as I can book them.

Being a “curvy” bride I was always hiding from cameras and was dreading the thought of the spot light being on me (the bride) for my wedding last weekend. Like most of the reviews for Krystle and Bonnie the hair and make up was spectacular! But more than this, the dynamic duo bring an air of calmness into the room, which on any wedding day is the epi centre of stress. From the minute I met Krystle (trials etc) she has displayed a natural flair for creating exactly what every bride needs and then some - and unlike many other vendors, she actually listens to you and works with you to create your special look. Bonnie brings an artisitic approach to make up that I have never seen before, and made my already stunning bridesmaids picture perfect on the day. For the small amount Astonish charge for both hair and makeup you could not ask for a better team! I would personally recommend them to all and will find any excuse to use there services again in the future. Thanks to Krystle and Bonnie I actually love my wedding photos and am finally ready to have a photo of me in the house

I could not have asked for a better start to our wedding day. Krystal and Bonnie arrived, set up and got to work. All 6 of us were done within a couple of hours, make up and hair. Talk about efficient and fabulous. We all looked amazing and the compliments we got proved I had chosen the right person for the job. Krystal listened to exactly what I wanted and made suggestions where it was needed. My sister was very nervous about what she would look like, having had nightmare bridesmaid experiences in the past, but she looked gorgeous. We all did. Thank you so much both Krystal and Bonnie for making the girls and I feel like princesses!

Krystle did a fantastic job of our hairups for my wedding. Myself and 2 bridesmaids all looked amazing and got so many comments on the day.
Krystle was ontime, very professional and comes with so many ideas, nothing is a problem - you can tell she enjoys sharing your day with you.
I recommend her to anybody wanting a great job with no hassle!!

If you are looking for a hair stylist, Krystle is amazing. I would not hesitate in recommending her and her team to any bride and bridal party.
I used Krystle for my wedding in October 2011, she was professional and punctual. She created beautiful hair-ups for my Three Bridesmaids and coped effortlessly with my request for a different style to watch we had trialed. She is amazing!
Thanks again Krystle!
Wedding Date: October 1, 2011
Krystle was fantastic, she listened to what I wanted both at the trial and on the acutal day.
My hair on my day was perfect, I had some clip in hair extensions and she knew exactly what to do with them, they style also lasted the whole day.
Krystle also was very lovely to deal with, I would recommend her to anyone.

Krystal knows what suits you and your personality. She shares her ideas and listens to what you want, then she creates something magical! Krystal goes the extra mile to make you feel like a princess on your big day! I loved my hair and clip, as did my mum, bridesmaids and sister in law and i would not have changed a thing! Thank-you!
Wedding Date: 30 October, 2010
I used Krystal to do my hair for myself, brisemaid and mum. Throughout the whole process of meeting Krystal, having my hair trial and the actual wedding I found Krystal friendly, professional and she did a fantastic job. She listened to what I wanted and gave advice where needed. The result ended in myself and bridesmaid all having fantastic hair ups for the wedding and I recieved numerous comments on how great my looked. I have reccomeneded Krystal to a number of friends for their weddings and they too have been thrilled with Krystal. The best part is Krystal is now my hair dresser and has been since I got married. I would definatly reccomend Krystal to do your hair for your wedding/celebration as she is absoltuley fantastic!!

I cannot begin to explain how amazing Bonnie from Astonish Hair and Beauty is! From the very first phone call, she was professional, friendly and very accommodating. She went out of her way to fit in with my tight schedule to do mine and the bridesmaids trial makeup, which was really appreciated.
On the day of my wedding, she arrived right on time and very quickly got to work, she has a certain way of calming people as well, as I was getting that overwhelmed feeling and when she was doing my hair and make up she kept my mind off things and was very easy to talk to.
To say that I was happy with the hair and make up of myself and the bridesmaids is an understatement, it was outstanding, the make up was flawless and the hair breath taking and it lasted all day and all night. I would have no hesitation at all at recommending this very talented lady to any bride/wedding party, I know three of my girlfriends have used her since my wedding and have all had the same outstanding results! Thanks Bonnie

Krystle did such an amazing job with the hair and makeup for myself and my bridesmaids. From the first visit to discuss my big day right up until the wedding day itself. She was always very helpful, had great ideas and I continued to have my hair cut and coloured leading up to my big day. I was always happy with the cut and colours she did for me.
The trial went well and when it came to the day of my wedding, she arrived early, and did all the hair and makeup for myself and my three bridesmaids and she even managed to do my mother in laws hair too which I hadn’t booked in. Everyone looked fantastic and my hair and makeup looked great the whole day.
I would highly recommend Krystle and her team to any bride to be out there. She is truly talented and amazing at what she does. Thanks again Krystle!!
