Pre-wedding hair and make up

It’s your big day and on this day more than any other you want to look and feel your best.

From my years of experience in the bridal industry, I understand the excitement and sometimes pressure that you’ll be feeling about how you want to look on your Wedding Day. That’s why I work closely with my brides to understand exactly what look you are trying to create and ensure that this fits in seamlessly with other details that you’ve planned, such as your dress, accessories, bridesmaids and colour scheme.

My focus is on using my hair and make-up skills to bring out and draw attention to your natural features so that the end result is an enhanced version of yourself.

On the other hand If you are looking to style your own hair and make-up, please do look at my other service – ‘Lessons – hair and make-up’, ideal if you are having a intimate affair or a destination wedding, and would like to get some tips on how to achieve the best look on the day.

Please take a look at the services I offer below for the lead up to your Wedding day.

Consultation – Free

Many brides are not quite sure where to start when it comes to hair and make-up or may have questions on how they can achieve a specific look. That’s why I like to offer a free 30 minute consultation so we can chat through your ideas or concerns before moving on to your trial.

Then look no further than my hair and make-up master classes.

Within the classes I will introduce professional techniques, guidance on what products to buy, how to cater for your skin type as well as breaking down your desired look into easy to re-create steps. Please take a look below at the different classes available:

With so many brands, and the array of choices they offer, it can be hard to pick exactly the right combination of products for your skin type, colouring and the look you want to achieve. I can offer that all important guidance to help you make the right choices.

Personal shopping: make-up – £15/hr (2hr min)

I will personally accompany you to support you with your choice of make-up. I will be able to provide guidance on the quality of different brands as well as helping you to select products that are right for your skin and will help you achieve the look you want to re-create.

Parties and special occasions

Professionally styled hair and make-up can put the finishing touches to an amazing outfit for a special occasion. Why not treat yourself for your next upcoming event.

I am skilled in creating a range of different looks depending on whether you’re attending a daytime event such as a christening or the races or if you’re looking for a more sophisticated, sultry look for an evening soiree. I love nothing more than spending time understanding the event, your outfit and what style you are looking to achieve so that the end result meets exactly what you’re looking for.

I am happy to either come to your house to create your hair and make-up or visit you at the venue where the event is taking place.

Please note that venues within London are included in the price, and travel out of London depends on location and facility of transport.
