A very natural bridal look

Something a little more glam

Before and after hair and makeup.

Beautiful before and beautiful after ?

Before and after hair and makeup, doesn't it brighten her face!?

I think the makeup here really softens her features and gives her some warmth.

A beautiful bridal hair and makeup before and after

Love these soft, textured, boho styles

Upgrade your ponytail for your wedding day by adding braids, twists and curls.

A high, messy bun is a great option with a backless dress. It's also a lot more of a durable...

Add some texture to your half up half down styles with different braids and twists

Adding flowers or clips can take your style to the next level

FAQs

What deposit do you require?

I take 50% of the total amount to secure your date. This represents 50% of each individual member of the party, meaning that if one member cancels, their individual deposit is retained and only their remaining individual total is deducted from the outstanding balance. The deposit is refundable for 1 week after your booking is made, in case you change your mind and for 24 hours after your trial in case you decide I am not the hair or makeup artist for you. It is also refundable in the unlikely event that I should have to cancel or the wedding is cancelled due to a pandemic, natural disaster or other factors outside of our control.

Where/when do the trials take place?

It is preferable for you to come to me for the trial, however I am able to come to you if this is not possible. Travel is free within a 10 mile radius and any further miles are charged at 25p per mile. You should book your trial when you know that you will not be changing your mind about any major parts of the wedding such as your dress, colour scheme, overall style etc and when you know you will not be making any major changes to your physical appearance either.

How long does a trial take?

I allow: Bridal makeup or hair: 1hr 15 minutes Bridal hair and makeup: 2.5hrs Bridesmaids, mothers of, etc makeup or hair: 1hr Bridesmaids, mothers of, etc hair and makeup: 2hrs This is longer than the timings for the day to allow for discussions, changes to be made and a product list to be compiled.

Do I need to bring anything for the trial?

Please bring your hair accessories to your hair trial if you have them. If there is an item of your own makeup that you really love you may also bring that and we will discuss using it on the day however you do not need to bring any makeup.

When do your require final payment?

You can pay the rest of the cost up to 24 hours before the wedding.

How long do you need on the wedding day?

This will be discussed with each individual bride. Usually around 1hr for the brides hair or makeup, 2hrs for both, 30 minutes for the bridesmaids hair or makeup, 1hr for both plus 30 mins extra time for setting up.

What additional services do your offer?

I offer brow waxing, tinting and lamination and lip waxing. I would recommend having these done at least 24 hours before I do your makeup if you are having them done.

Do you have any special offers?

I do not run offers on bridal hair and makeup.

More info on my pricing

EARLY START CHARGE - For starts before 7am outside of a 10 mile radius there will be an additional charge of £75 to allow me to stay overnight nearby (You don't want a half asleep hair or makeup artist on your wedding day!)

WEDDING EVE PREP - Sometimes it is necessary to put some, or all, of the wedding party's hair into overnight curls due to time constraints or party size. This will be charged at £10 per person and for weddings outside of a 10 mile radius, the £75 early start charge will be added (this would not be added again for starting before 7am the next day).

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.
