Barnet & Boatrace
Barnet & Boatrace was founded in 2017 by Olga (Lead Makeup Artist) after several collaborations with her long standing hairdresser (and good friend) Tandee who is the Head Hair Stylist.

Olga first dipped her toe in the beauty industry in 2004 after being her own wedding by working for Sir Richard Branson's former skincare and makeup company Virgin Cosmetics. She quickly found her passion for bridal makeup.

Tandee has been styling hair since leaving school in 1995 and has a creative passion for wedding hair. She has attended various courses with Wella and Toni & Guy.

Olga has recruited Senior and Junior Hair Stylists and Makeup Artists to the team which enables Olga and Tandee to take on larger wedding parties.

Grey hair don't care! 

As the majority of our Stylists are trained hairdressers too we can happily advise you re colouring and cutting your hair or blending in greys if needed. - Make Me Bridal Artist: Barnet & Boatrace. Photography by: Barnet and Boatrace own. #bohemian Photo by Barnet and Boatrace own

This gorgeous bride was an absolute dream to makeover. We created a subtle yet glamourous smoky eye look by emphasising her gorgeous brown eyes with a metallic eyeshadow as a base, dark brown eyeshadow to outline plus liquid eye liner finished with lashings of black waterproof mascara. We filled in her brows to give a strong shape and added a subtle pop of colour to the cheeks and lips. - Make Me Bridal Artist: Barnet & Boatrace.

Winter weddings can be a gamble weather wise with the likeliness of grey skies and little sun so warmer colours on the cheeks and lips can really help make the brides features stand out more - plus a bit of a light tan always helps too! - Make Me Bridal Artist: Barnet & Boatrace.

We were privileged to style this bride and her bridal party. They were a lot of fun. 

The bride wanted to have her hair styled up as that is what she is used to every day for work ( British dressage rider and equestrian in case you're wondering!) so that's what we did of course but with a bit more of a bridal twist!

This nice little before and after pic demonstrates how a good foundation can make all the difference without looking cakey. We use premium quality foundations such as Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter, MAC Studio Fix, Mii Cosmetics (which is fab for sensitive skin) to name a few! - Make Me Bridal Artist: Barnet & Boatrace.

Lovely Lottie! That's the name we refer to for this luscious looking bride. We simply loved her gorgeous flower crown.  She had great cheek bones so we enhanced these with bronzer. We went for quite bold eyes and a pop of pink on the apples of the cheeks to compliment the colours from the flower crown and bouquet. - Make Me Bridal Artist: Barnet & Boatrace.

FAQs

What deposit do you require?

A non refundable deposit of £100 is required. This is deducted from the final invoice.

Where/when do the trials take place?

We usually carry out the trials from a salon in Wallisdown on the border of Bournemouth and Poole. Sometimes we carry out trials from the Stylists or Makeup Artists own home (or yours if preferred). We recommend booking your trial at least 3 months before the wedding day. Alternatively, we do offer a free 10 minute video trial instead if an in person trial is not practical or required.

How long does a trial take?

Approximately 1 - 2 hours depending on whether you are having both hair and makeup and whether the trial is for just you or to include bridesmaids too.

Do I need to bring anything for the trial?

Hair accessories, images of hair and makeup ideas that inspire you as well as your makeup bag so that we can see what sort of products you are used to using but please don't worry if you don't own any! We are used to brides that wear little or no makeup.

How long do you need on the wedding day?

We generally allow an hour for bridal hair and bridal makeup so two hours in total (although it usually takes less time than this but we like to play it safe!) We allow an hour in total for bridesmaids and mothers for makeup and hair (30 minutes per service) unless we have booked you with a Junior as they tend to take a little longer (45 - 50 mins per service)

When do your require final payment?

We require final payment no later than 4 weeks before the wedding day. We ask for 50% 14 days after your trial has taken place.

What additional services do your offer?

Our Lead Makeup Artist Olga offers makeup such as lipsticks, glosses and powders from Mii Cosmetics which you can purchase to top up with on your wedding day. We also offer male grooming and a 'skin refresh' for the Groom or Groomsmaids too as well as cutting services with our Head and Senior Stylists.

More info on my pricing

We provide a bespoke quote dependent on your requirements taking into account the following details:

- Time of year
- Location
- Number of people in your wedding party
- The time that you need to be ready for
- Number of professionals required (and their experience)

Our aim is to have you ready in a relaxed and timely manner so we discourage 6am starts! We'd rather bring more of our team along to have all hands on deck.

To give you a rough idea we have provided the average price quoted for Bridal Hair and Makeup as well as Bridesmaids and Mothers in the Pricing Table. We do also provide services for the Groom and Groomsmaids.

Contact Artist

We will store your enquiry for 1 year and a minimum of 3 months after your wedding date, if provided. This is so that the artist can always refer to it if needed. After this time your enquiry will be automatically deleted.
