Carter Hair & Makeup
Hiya, I'm Holly (Carter) of Carter Hair & Makeup.

I am proud to say I am an award winning Makeup Artist and Hairstylist based in Hertfordshire and Essex. If you wish for a more natural, romantic and relaxed look to your wedding hair and makeup then please contact me. I'd love the opportunity to look after you on your wedding morning and show you it's not about how makeup looks, it's about how it makes you feel.

I love enhancing your natural style and bringing out your inner bride, whatever that may mean to you. After all, no one wants to walk down the aisle and not be recognised by their future partner, unless

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 25% deposit 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 Tuesday or Thursday at my home studio. I advise having a trial 3-5 months before your wedding date.

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 natural makeup. If you don’t know what to have in your hair, I have a variety of accessories to try and also make bespoke hair flower accessories

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 month away full payment is required to secure the booking.

What is your cancellation policy?

Unless specified differently on the webpage for the service: · Payments made to the Company for a service that is subsequently cancelled by the Company will be refunded in full within 7 days of the cancellation; and · Cancellations by the Client for a service where a payment has been made, that are received less than 3 weeks before the start of the service are non-refundable. Cancellations received before this time will be refunded in full within 7 days of the cancellation. Cancellations for services booked where travel and/or accommodation expenses have been paid for by the Company and are non-refundable by the travel/accommodation provider(s) will incur full reimbursement from the Client to the Company for the travel and/or accommodation costs paid. Cancellations are only valid if received via email to [email protected]

How long do you need on the wedding day?

This is very dependant on wedding party size, time restrictions on the day, getting ready venue and many other factors. This will be discussed with you in detail either on or after the trial.

What additional services do your offer?

I make bespoke faux flower hair accessories. This can be custom made for you or you can buy one of the ones I have already made. I make flower pins, combs and crowns for any of your wedding party. Take a look at carterhairandmakeup.com/hairflowers for more details
