    Fabulous Hair & Makeup

    Ieva is so lovely. She took time in the trial to try lots of different options and make sure I was happy with my decisions. She was amazing on my wedding morning. My bridesmaid and I both absolutely loved our looks. I highly recommend Ieva to every bride.

    Amazing - very high end of professional

    Ieva was perfect!! She was so friendly and lovely to be around- and very talented! I was nervous for my trial as it was my second trial I had (my first one was with someone else) and the first one I did was not what I wanted- but Ieva absolutely nailed what I wanted first time, and listened to my questions and notes and took the time to make it perfect. On the day itself she was a very calming and confident presence so I felt I was in safe hands! The look itself was even better than in the trial as well. Her makeup technique was so natural but still looked like a real transformation, she knew how to cater to my skin type and the hair was beautiful too- she listened to my concerns about the curls dropping and made sure they were locked in for the whole day so I didn’t have to worry about it once! Thank you Ieva! X

    Fantastic Wedding Hair and Makeup

    Ieva is just the best. She helped me choose a beautiful hair/make up look for my wedding and executed it perfectly. I'm have incredibly pale skin and Ieva managed to match the makeup to my complexion flawlessly - no small feat!

    She also did beautiful hair styling for my MoH, Mum and MiL and arranged for them to have excellent makeup by her assistant.

    Ieva was prompt at responding and flexible about where the styling would take place. Would 100% recommend her.

    Incredible

    Professional and caring, Ieva made our morning magical. Not only did Ieva do our hair and makeup but Ieva and her assistant also helped my bridesmaids dress and helped me with my dress. Nothing was too much trouble. We had trials at Ieva’s studio and I was blown away by her skills immediately. The videos and photos were a lovely touch as well, sent through a few days after. I would 100% recommend Ieva - amazing ❤️

    Ieva was amazing

    Ieva was fantastic to work with. She was professional and not only willing but in fact was eager to try a vintage hair style she'd never done before the hair and makeup trial (it turned out perfectly, btw). She's personable and very friendly, helping my nervous mother in law to feel comfortable in hair and makeup. She even took some great photos of the getting ready process and assisted me in getting dressed. I can't recommend her highly enough, even a month after the wedding in still getting compliments on my hair and makeup.

    Felt like a celebrity!

    Ieva went out of her way to ensure that everyone had the perfect hair and make up for the day of my wedding. She had scheduled everything perfectly and made me vision come true with everything I wanted and more. When she first did my trial, I cried because of how perfect it was. On the morning of the wedding, she not only did hair and make up, but she helped the florist, the photographer and took some beautiful videos of which I will cherish forever. I would highly recommend Ieva! Best hair and make up artist ever.

    There aren’t enough nice words!

    Ieva is incredible! She is so talented and creates beautiful hair and make up styles! We had the best, relaxing, fun morning getting ready before the wedding - 11 bridesmaids and a bride!!! Everyone looked absolutely stunning and all the girls were so happy with their hair and make up. Ieva and her team were so well organised and just brilliant - there aren’t enough nice words!!! I highly recommend.

    Exceptional service and fantastic make up and hair

    I am so glad I had chosen Ieva to do my hair and make up. At the trial session we tried a hair style I liked and Ieva suggested make up to go with it. On my wedding day I looked like a million dollar and everyone was commenting on my hair and make up. Thank you Ieva

    Look and feel your most beautiful with Ieva’s unparalleled talent!

    I cannot say enough good things about my experience with hair and makeup services from Ieva. I have truly never felt or looked more beautiful than when Ieva worked with me. She is such a talented artist, and the fact that she was both a hair and makeup expert made my big day stress free. I was so impressed with my transformation, and she helped to capture the day with stunning photos and video that I shared with my family. She was an absolute delight to work with!! I promise you’ll never feel more beautiful!

    Can’t thank her enough!

    Ieva was so flexible with my plans and was great at fitting seamlessly into my schedule. She knew exactly what she was doing and was so warm and friendly which really helped me to relax in the lead up to the day and on the day itself. My mum, bridesmaids and I were very happy and impressed with our hair and makeup- it was exactly what I wanted! She went above and beyond to make my day extra special and I can’t thank her enough x

    Very enjoyable experience

    I found Ieva online. She was very responsive when I sent an enquiry and her location was ideal, which is why I chose her. I had a great time during the hair & makeup trial. Ieva is a very friendly person. She gave me great recommendation about hair accessories. She was very flexible when it came to organising hair & makeup on the day, which was great because I had to make last-minute changes due to guests not being able to attend. Also, Ieva was able to come to my hotel room to do the hair & makeup. This meant that morning preparations were very much stress-free. I highly recommend her.

    The perfect choice for your wedding day

    Ieva is an amazing, incredibly talented hair and makeup artist who I can guarantee will make you look and feel your best self for your big day. She was incredibly responsive and professional throughout the wedding planning process, even with several postponements due to the current pandemic. I'm so fortunate that she was still able to do my hair and makeup for my small wedding ceremony this October, and she did a truly fantastic job on the day. I received so many compliments from my new husband and family, and I really felt so beautiful! I have very pale skin, but she selected shades that suited me perfectly, and made my features really stand out. I also have quite fine hair, and she assisted me in choosing hair extensions which could be worked into my chosen hairstyle to give it that extra bit of volume - my hair has honestly never looked so good!

    I was also thrilled to discover Ieva lives just around the corner from me, and offers other beauty services in her home studio. She did a stunning eyelash and eyebrow tint for me, and I'm looking forward to returning in the future for other treatments. Ieva is the best!!

    Made everything simple and stress-free and I looked great!

    Ieva did hair and makeup for me and my maid of honour for my wedding in January 2022. Our wedding was a small, simple affair. I wanted to look good but still like myself and I somehow wanted to incorporate a braid in the hairdo. Those were the only instructions I gave to Ieva and goodness did she fly with them. She just understood the assignment perfectly. Since my dress wasn't a wedding dress, she suggested and incorporated some glamorous elements to my hair and makeup to elevate the look which worked great. It was her idea to add flowers to the hair and between the rehearsal and the wedding she gave me advice to help my skin be better prepared for a long day. I still can't believe I went through the whole day talking, sweating, eating, drinking, dancing and a little bit of crying without ever needing to touch up my hair or makeup, including lashes and a very bold oxblood lip. It was so good to have someone I trusted immediately, professional, friendly and clearly very creative, one less thing to worry about!
