Samantha Melanie Hair and Makeup
I'm passionate about making my clients not only look fantastic, but feel amazing too. With 6 years experience, I am well equipped to transform my brides and their party’s into their dream looks for their big day. I regularly attend courses & masterclasses to keep up-to-date with the latest trends and keep my skills on point!

I first had a passion for makeup from a very young age (10!) and always wanted to be involved in the hair and beauty industries. I am lucky enough to now be ‘working’ in the career I always dreamed of!

I love being part of your big day. It’s a real gift to witness the gasps, often tears, of admiration from family members when a bride is ready and in her dress. It’s why I love my job SO much. I feel so proud!

FAQs

Where/when do the trials take place?

Usually, around 2-3 months before the wedding. I carry out all trials here at my spacious home studio.
