Carter Hair & Makeup
Hiya

I’m Holly and I’ve been a hair and makeup artist for the last 13 or so years.

If you’re looking for more of a natural and relaxed feel to your hair & makeup then I’m the match for you.

I love to provide brides with a naturally “polished” version of themselves. No one wants to get to the end of the aisle and have their partner not recognise them! You just want to look like the absolute best version of you.
Even my more glam looks still have a lovely fresh, natural feel to them.

Please check out my profile for examples of my ongoing work.

I look forward to hearing from you!

FAQs

What deposit do you require?

I take a £50 booking fee which holds your wedding date. This comes off the total bill once the final payment is due.

Where/when do the trials take place?

Trials take place on a Thursday at my home studio. If you wish for me to come to you, a £25 surcharge is added to the trial price. I advise having a trial 3-5 months before your wedding date but this is really up to you.

How long does a trial take?

Allow anything up to 3-4 hours for hair & makeup. Hair or Makeup can take up to 2 hours

Do I need to bring anything for the trial?

If you have any inspirational images from my website then please bring them along, we can have a chat on the day of course but it helps if we both have an idea of what you'd like. My idea of a loose curl and yours may be totally different. The same goes for a smokey eye makeup. If you have any hair accessories or a fave lippie then please bring them along too.

When do your require final payment?

Full payment of the balance of is required 1 month before the day at the latest, if the service is less than 1 week away full payment is required to secure the booking.
