About Pittsburgh Wedding Stylist| Simply Captivating Salon & Styling Owner: Christy Pickell
Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by my website to learn more about me and my services. I am a licensed cosmetologist and salon owner in the Pittsburgh, PA area specializing in bridal and formal event styling.
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved styling hair. I’d get my Barbie and style her hair all different ways even teaching myself how to do various braids, lol! Who knew that my passion for styling would turn into a business and a career. Prior to opening my own business, I obtained a degree in Public Relations and worked in corporate sales/marketing. Styling for weddings started as a hobby for friends and family but as time went on, I kept getting more and more requests to style for people outside of that realm. Eventually, my hobby grew into a business and I went to school to obtain my cosmetology license. I was privately trained at Pittsburgh Multicultural Cosmetology Academy downtown Pittsburgh by Michelle Leonard (an amazing teacher & mentor!). I choose that school because I wanted an education that taught me how to work with every type of hair from pin straight to kinky curly.
What makes my salon and services unique is that I SPECIALIZE in wedding & formal event styling, whereas, most salons offer styling for events as a side-service. I truly believe this shows in the quality of the styles and how they hold up throughout the day and evening. With years of experience styling for hundreds of women of every age and hair-type, over 130 five-star reviews on WeddingWire and various more on Facebook and TheKnot, I am confident that I would be an excellent choice for your wedding or special event!
When I am not styling for weddings/events or providing other hair services, I love to be with my family. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Chris, and we have two beautiful little girls who light up our lives! I LOVE coffee, spending time with family & friends, the crisp air & beautiful colors of fall, a great massage, fresh flowers, trying new restaurants & visiting new places! I’d love the chance to learn more about you and to be a part of your special day! I hope that you consider me and my team of well-trained, talented & professional stylists.
Thanks again for visiting my website!
