LEANNE McCARTHY
Astrid Woodard unfailingly exudes professionalism while demonstrating enthusiastic passion for her trade. Astrid has a keen ability to read her client, to listen accurately to their specific requests, and to deliver a product that exceeds expectation. On the hectic morning of my wedding, I was so confident in Astrid's ability and trusted her so explicitly that I did not worry for a moment that she would make me look pretty; I just couldn't have envisioned how perfectly she would nail it. Further to her exceptional abilities technically and interpersonally, Astrid is a charming, intelligent, ambitious, and hard-working individual. She juggles her work, family, academic study, and thirst for life with grace and eloquence. If ever I was putting together a team of innovative visionaries to tackle an abstract problem with limited resources, I would do whatever was required to have Astrid on that project.

"[Astrid] makes everyone comfortable and feel great about themselves!"

KARLA SNIDER
Astrid is an awesome hair and makeup artist! She always sends my clients to my studio looking amazing! She knows how to emphasize people's best features. Her work photographs wonderfully every time! She knows exactly what I am looking for so I just trust that each client I send her will come to my studio ready to shoot and looking awesome. Astrid has the greatest personality, and I constantly hear from my clients that they had a wonderful experience with her.

"Astrid is a most talented artist and her work comes more-than-highly recommended by my company."

MARIA MILONAS TSOUNIS
Having worked with her both on personal events, as well as contracted events, her work literally speaks for itself and the first impression is always a "wow" moment with her fantastic make-up skills. To say that I endorse her talents would be an understatement!

"Astrid had an incredible talent for bringing out the perfection in whoever she works on."

MELISSA RAIMONDI
Her make-up application is amazing and flawless, and her hair styling is stunning and fresh. She works hard to be a star in her field, by keeping up with trends and styles (example is offering airbrush makeup), and it is ALWAYS a pleasure to photograph the girls that she decorates! She is professional and takes her time with each of her clients to make sure they get the best service possible. Wonderfully fun and friendly, Astrid is definitely a must for your next bridal/boudoir or special event hair and make-up applications!!
