Tell me a little bit about your business!
Hi, I am Courtney Benedetti and I am a on-site event stylist, mainly for weddings. But I’m also available for photo shoots, videos, red carpet, etc. I have been in the business for more than half my life!
What makes your work unique?
There are so many talented hair stylists in the area. But I feel like my edge is all of my years in NYC in production and working with high end celebrities. A wedding is a production, after all! I know how to stay on time, work well with other vendors, multi-task, and I have the right energy in a high stress environment.
What is your ideal client like?
I love romantic styles! I like wispy hair that moves in the wind, soft waves, and romantic updos. So many people are drawn to those looks in beautiful photographs and then sometimes want so much hairspray that their hair won’t move! I like movement!!!
How do you determine what look a bride is going for?
I love to know about everything – the dress, venue, overall decor, where photos will be, etc. I like to know when the bride has had her hair done and has LOVED it and when she has HATED it. This helps me gauge what makes them feel the most beautiful. When you meet someone for the first time, your idea of what will be the most flattering may be completely different from how they are comfortable. Your bridal look shouldn’t be something people are confused by. You want to look like you…only enhanced!
Do you provide on-location services?
