I would highly recommend Charley - she made me, my bridesmaids and my mum look & feel great, and our hair & make up lasted all day! She is also calm, kind, and booking and communicating with her was easy. I would absolutely use charley again.

Amazing bridal hair and makeup artist

I'm so happy I chose Charley for my wedding day hair and make up. From the start she was super friendly and helped me pick the perfect hair and makeup styles. She brought such a calming and friendly presence to the wedding day morning too. She did such an amazing job on my wedding day hair and make-up and bridesmaids' hair, it lasted all day and night through all the dancing! I'd 1000% recommend Charley to any new brides-to-be. Thank you Charley!

Made me feel beautiful on my special day

Charley went above and beyond to make me look and feel beautiful on my special day. My hair is notoriously poker straight and Charley tried different techniques over two trials to figure out the best way to achieve the Hollywood waves I wanted, with the end result being what I had always wanted my hair to look like as a bride. My makeup was beautiful, and again Charley tried different looks at my trial until I decided what I wanted. The makeup lasted all day and I felt amazing. Charley's two assistants did an amazing job with my bridal party. They looked glamorous and cohesive and the assistants were so much fun and we had a great laugh all morning. Charley really put me at ease, especially as the wedding drew closer and I was starting to get nervous. I would recommend Charley to anyone getting married who wants a relaxed, fun experience whilst getting ready for their special day and wants an experienced HMUA who will do everything to make you feel your best as a bride.

Not just amazing hair and make up... but wonderful company too.

The lead up to the wedding was probably the scariest part of the day, but having Charley there made the experience so much easier. She was very relaxed, calm, yet confident in what she needed to do to get myself and my bridesmaids ready. We only met once for the consultation yet we all chatted and laughed away through the preparations like we known each other for ages! :) My bridesmaids and I looked amazing and Charley was very thorough, ensuring that each of us were completely happy with everything before she left. I honestly couldn't have asked for more. She wasn't just doing my hair and make up to an exceptional standard, she also offered support and a relaxed atmosphere which definitely bounced off onto me and started the day off in the most perfect way.

In love with my bridal hair!

Charley did an amazing job on my hair for my big day! It was beautifully done and just what I asked for. Everyone at our wedding commented on how lovely my hair was. All of the bridesmaids were in love with their hair styles! Charley was so lovely and friendly to us all and would definitely recommend to any bride for their big day.

Beautiful bridal hair and make up!

Thank you so much to Charley who did my hair and make up so beautifully for my wedding in August 2022. She listened to exactly what I wanted and made it happen. It all looked perfect all day which I was really surpirised by. Charley was so lovely too, really put me at ease on my special day. I really couldn't recommend her highly enough!

Lovely lady and amazing makeup artist.

I wasn't sure what I wanted for my bridal makeup, I said to Charley maybe something natural and she got it perfect on the first trial. On the day she was amazing and made me feel very relaxed and at ease on what was a crazy day!
Would highly recommend and use again!

Amazing looks and fantastic experience!

Charley did my wedding hair and makeup (on 2 days!) and it was just perfect. My first look was a traditional Asian bride look, with heavier makeup than I’d usually wear because of the dress style, but she got it spot on. The second look was more natural, and again she did an amazing job. She’s super chill and lovely - just what you need on your wedding morning! :) I definitely recommmend Charley to all!

Great All Round Experience

We were fortunate to work with Charley for our hair and make up at my daughter's wedding blessing. We live in Canada so it was a case of Zoom calls and emails to brief Charley and she was patient and helpful. Charley understood what we were hoping to achieve and executed it to the letter. Jenny's natural "day look" was beautiful, and her hair, including extensions was on point. Day of Charley worked her magic and even managed to create an up do for me! Our make up was perfect and lasted through the day - and the evening party. Thank you so much for helping to make the day perfect; we would 100% recommend you!

very talented and super accomodating

Charley did my hair & make up for my wedding in Nov 2023, along with my 3 bridemaids hair & 1 m.o.b, Charley was super friendly and made me feel at such ease when having my trials. She knew what i wanted with just a conversation and made it come to reality, highly recommend having Charley for your hair or make up, i know ill be back for other events 😊

Fantastic hair and make up experience

I was so lucky to find Charley after a fairly last minute change of plans for my hair and make up! Charley was very easy to communicate with and super flexible, I booked in for my trial and that gave me loads of confidence for the experience on the day. Charley and her excellent team did hair and make up for me, my mum and my 7 bridesmaids so it was all go on the morning of the wedding! I absolutely loved how everything turned out on the day, and Charley was so lovely to work with, I’d highly recommend!!

Keeping cool despite the heat!

I can't recommend Charley enough, she was a delight to work with from our first communication through the whole proceedings. She did hair for myself and two bridesmaids, they both looked amazing and Charley took into account their own personal styles. With a couple of tweaks from the trial I had exactly the look I was after, and it even survived all day, despite it being the hottest day of the year! Thank you so much Charley!

An absolute pleasure

Charley made my wedding morning so so relaxed and I was so happy with all the hair and make up, she was flexible with offering different styles for each of my bridesmaids and listened to their preferences too! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Charley to friends and family.
