Why book your wedding hair and bridal make up services with me?
I’ve done it all before
I love weddings. Everything about them. I love the story of how you got engaged, I love hearing about how you found me, your venue and other suppliers. I love helping you prep, I love helping you calm your anxiety. Everything I do is integral to the best start of your wedding morning. I’ve worked on over 200 weddings and know exactly how it goes and exactly how to prepare myself, and you, for yours.
I’m an expert that does things a little differently
My style of work is influenced heavily by red carpet hair and make up looks. I have a personal file for each of my clients that we add to- Basecamp, Pinterest. I want to know about your skin and how I can help it look its best. I want to help you whittle those 8/20 different styles into your bespoke bridal do.
I go the extra mile
Is your Mum having trouble getting you into your dress? I can help you with that. Has your bridesmaids dress popped a button? I can stitch it back on. Feeling panicky? I’ve been there, done that and will be there to reassure you that everything is going to be fabulous.
I tailor your skincare to what you need, how your skin feels and looks and how you want it to look all day. This includes a proper cleanse, exfoliation, a facial massage to encourage blood flow and plump skin and hydrating, soothing eye masks. I also include false cluster lashes ( the diddy comfy ones that are applied one by one ) that are perfect for your eye shape and face contours.
Timings are important but not everything
I never time trials. By that I mean I don’t give you an hour and a half and then kick you out ready for my next client. I’ve known Artists and Salons to do this and it’s unfair and misleading when you’re paying them for their time and expertise. I usually factor in 3/4 hours for your hair and make up trial. It’s experimental and it’s super important to me that you leave feeling excited, comfortable and gorgeous and ready to rock the world.
What happens now?
An initial consultation
I want to get know you and what you expect from me for your Wedding day! Shortly after your initial enquiry we hold a consultation to discover what you want from me for your day, when your trial should be, your make up and hair inspiration mood boards, and current logistics involving wedding venue, florist, photographer… I’m all ears! This is usually done over a cocktail at one of my favourite bars/ pubs, or can be done over Skype. Give me a call or drop me an email to schedule yours in.
Your wedding hair and make up trial
Every trial starts with a luxury cleanse, facial massage and further consultation. You can bring a buddy ( someone that will be lovingly honest about your look we create) and enjoy nibbles and refreshments at my home whittling down the best and most relevant of your inspiration images to create a look that’s unique to you. Expect this to last between 1.5 and 4 hours. You leave when you’re happy. You’re not on a timer.
Your wedding day
I would have created a schedule for yourself and any bridal party members so you know exactly what it going on, when and where. I arrive at your chosen venue at a specific time to start setting your hair or applying skincare. Let’s pop that champagne open and get you feeling and looking fabulous!
Occasion make up and hair styling
I also offer occasion make up and hair styling. This includes a proper cleanse tailored to your skin type, exfoliation, a facial massage and eye masks and false lash application. When I style your hair I include full prep- I ask that it is clean that morning, a blow dry, heat re set and style. Find prices here.
