    It stayed in the whole day and night and still looked great the next day!

    Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job for me and the other girls on the wedding day. Thank you also for being so understanding after I changed my mind about what I wanted! I was thrilled with my hair on the day, as I know the others were. It stayed in the whole day and night and still looked great the next day!

    Fabulous from start to finish!

    Mandy is phenomenal! Not really knowing anything about hair and make-up just knowing I wanted “natural” she made me look amazing! As a bride, naturally I was worried about time on my wedding morning, but Mandy worked tirelessly for many hours to ensure me and my 7 (!!) bridesmaids looked amazing! I couldn’t have been happier. Mandy is a pleasure to deal with and I couldn’t recommend her more!

    Fabulous!

    Thank you Mandy for being such a wonderful hair and makeup artist, you were truly fabulous and such a great support on the day. The bridesmaids and I very much enjoyed getting to know you as you were so friendly and fun, and you were so lovely at helping me feel relaxed on what was quite a nerve-racking day!

    We absolutely loved our hair and make-up and received so many compliments throughout the day. I especially have never felt so beautiful!

    I will be recommending you to all my friends.

    Thank you again

    Mandy was fab!

    I got married on 31st July 2015. My trial with Mandy was brilliant; I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted but Mandy was really patient and flexible and made me feel at home straight away.
    I had a few questions ahead of the day and she was always just an email away.
    On the day itself, she showed up at 6.15am cheerful and ready to go, taking into account a couple of last minute timing tweaks. As first time bridesmaids, a lot of my girls were really nervous and unsure about how their look would work. Not only did Mandy do a fabulous job of everyone's hair and makeup, she made us all feel at ease and by the end of the morning she was like an extra family member (and was able to take some great photos for us whilst everyone else was rushing out the door!)
    I would definitely recommend Mandy, she is fun, likeable and most importantly, FANTASTIC at what she does.
    Thank you Mandy! :)

    Excellent!

    I got married on 28th June this year and when I first started planning what my hair and make up should look like for both myself and bridesmaids I had no idea! That was until I met Mandy at my trial. Mandy is friendly, bubbly, someone who makes you feel at ease but also she can understand what you want and translate it into a style. I left the trial feeling beautiful and could not wait for the wedding day. On our wedding day Mandy was in my eyes wonder woman! She had a bride, 4 bridesmaids and two mums to contend with. This did not phase her at all and when we started at 6am she was as bubbly and talkative as ever! If you are looking for someone who has the whole package and at good prices then give Mandy a call. I could not have asked for more. Thank you Mandy! x

    A true professional

    Mandy did an absolutely fantastic job doing my hair and make-up, plus hair for 6 more on the morning of our wedding! From start to finish the whole experience has been extremely professional yet friendly, and everyone was extremely happy with the outcome. Mandy delt expertly with a number of tricky hair types and was a pleasure to have around on the morning of the wedding. She provides an excellent balance of listening to what you're looking for and suggesting things that would work for you - I would highly recommend Mandy to everyone

    *Perfect*

    Id like to say a huge thank you to Mandy Driver at Big Day Hair & Make Up. She offered a very friendly service which really helped me and my bridesmaids relax on the morning of my wedding. And the results were perfect - I had exactly what I wanted without previously having a trial.

    Brilliant Service - Brilliant Value and Amazing Results!!!

    Mandy did my hair & makeup for my wedding day on 10th September 2010 at Sir Christopher Wren Hotel in Windsor - She was brilliant! I couldn't have asked for a better service. I live in Hampshire but she was flexible and helpful when making the arrangements for both trial and wedding.
    I'm the first to admit I was a bit intimidated by the whole "wedding thing" but she was kind, patient and tried several styles before I settled on the right "hair-do" for me. (One of the first ones she showed me and suggested may suit me but happily let me exclude other ideas first.) She was spot on in her make-up application making me feel beautiful but “still me.”
    Mandy’s relaxed easy manner got my wedding day off to the perfect start. She not only made me look great (and more feminine than I have ever looked) but also kept me calm whilst co-ordinating all the extra things like flower / cake & bridesmaid arrivals.
    Most of all she went out of her way to make sure my mum had a brilliant day. My mum is very sick and up until the day of the wedding we were not even sure she was going to be with us on the day but Mandy changed her timetable at the last minute so she could greet my mum on arrival, calmed her down, did her hair and makeup and made her look brilliant but more importantly made her feel beautiful. Her kindness to me and my mother surpassed normal customer care. Mandy provided a service which was exceptional. Mandy I can't thank you enough for everything you did. Win and I had a great day and more importantly so did my mum! Thank you for everything you did, Mrs Whincupxxx

    So pleased

    Mandy was quite simply amazing! She arrived at 6am on a chilly October morning after travelling for an hour. She got straight to work transforming my lovely daughter into a very beautiful bride. Jess was so happy with the beautiful hair do and makeup, Mandy had listened to all that she had asked for. She also did hair and makeup for Jess’ bridesmaid and myself. We were also super pleased with our transformations. We all felt a million dollars thanks to Mandy. She is exceptionally good at her job. You will be in safe hands with Mandy.

    Absolutely fantastic

    Mandy was absolutely fantastic on our wedding day, doing the hair and make up for 5 wedding party members. She was well organised and a much needed calming influence! Everyone looked beautiful and the makeovers lasted all evening! We wont hesitate to book Mandy again for other family events in the future. Thank you Mandy!

    I can't thank Mandy enough

    I cannot fault any of the services that Mandy provided me with for my wedding she was absolutely fabulous! She was professional at all times and always made sure that I was happy with my hair and make up during my trial before the final decision was made on what I was going to have. On the day of the wedding she arrived well before she was supposed too and was chatting to everyone and joining in the conversation. My mum absolutely loved her hair and said that it made her feel very pretty and lady like as my mum is quite a Tom boy! My hair and make up on the day largest from 1pm until 1am and would have lasted longer if I didn't need to go to sleep! I cannot reccomened Big day hair and make-up enough! Thank you Mandy for everything I loved everything! Everyone was commenting on how lovely my hair and make up was and how natural and not cake like it looked! I cannot say thank you enough Mandy

    Highly recommended

    An excellent job on our wedding this weekend. Mandy was flexible, full of advice and couldn’t have done more on the big day! I highly recommend her services, the photographs she took afterwards were an added bonus.
    Everyone looked perfect and the make up lasted all night!
