Amazing Service, thank you!

I am so grateful to Olga and her team, when my previously booked suppliers cancelled last minute Olga couldn't do enough to help me. Within 24 hours she'd managed to find a hair stylist & makeup artist to do my wedding. Jo & Leanne were amazing, they arrived on time and did an amazing job. All of the bridal party looked stunning. They made what could have been a stressful build up on my wedding morning a really fun and chilled affair. Thank you so much!

Professional, reliable and experienced - and very friendly!

Olga and Tandee didn’t bat an eyelid when I asked for their help for our last minute wedding. Tandee even cut my hair on the day and Olga made any skin imperfections and bags under my eyes disappear. Together they created a gorgeous look. Highly recommended!

Fantastic make up and hair! Managed to get all the bridesmaids, mother of the bride and bride’s hair and make up done in 2 hours. So friendly and professional, listening to my opinions whilst giving advice.

Wedding Guest Hair & Makeup

Attended a family wedding in Bournemouth and needed hair & makeup services but had no clue where to start. Thankfully came across glowing reviews for Barnet and Boatrace and can see why. Olga was super responsive from the beginning and on the day herself and Tandee made myself and my mother in law feel ultra glam. We were so happy with our looks and would highly recommend and use them again.

Seamless and enjoyable

Olga and Tandee we extremely helpful prior to my big day. On the day they arrived on time and ready to go. They kept track of time which was needed! They listened to what we all wanted and the results were perfect. They were both lovely to be around during the morning of my wedding also. My Mum doesn't wear any make up so was a little hesitant but was so pleased with her make up for the day that she is ordering some of the products! Thank you both so much.

Brilliant for hair and make-up, thoroughly recommend

Having been a bridesmaid who has their make-up and hair with Barnet and Boatrace I booked them for my wedding as soon as I had a date. Having now had my hair done by two different ladies from here and make-up by two different ladies, I can definitely recommend this company. Olga is quick to respond to emails when booking and sorting out the details.

Mollie did my hair and Nipona did my make-up for my wedding. They were both very patient, friendly, extremely professional with both striving for perfection. They both went above and beyond and made sure everyone was happy with their make-up / hair respectively. Cannot recommend enough!

Olga Taylor
Makeup Artist

I started my professional makeup journey in 2004 after joining Richard Bransons' skincare and cosmetics company Virgin Vie. I had a passion for all things makeup and before social media took off this was a great way for me to learn the basics of skincare and cosmetics.

I quickly grew my customer base and commonly got asked if I did bridal makeup so saw a niche in the market and trained with the company to do bridal makeup and haven't looked back since.
