One in a million

Mine and Mikes Wedding was made even more perfect having Ruby do the bridal parties hair, from start to finish with messages, booking, trials and on the day Ruby made me feel at complete ease, she is so down to earth and knows exactly how to make you feel and look beautiful. With the huge nerves on a Wedding Day, I cant thank Ruby enough for how calm she made me, as soon as she walked in she made everyone laugh and lightened the panicky mood. Ruby jumped straight in and got to work on the hair whilst still able to multitask with keeping conversations flowing and being the bubbly amazing woman she is to keep spirits high, I recently saw Ruby again at a friends Wedding and it felt like seeing a best friend from across the room, Ruby, again, from the bottom of this Brides heart, you are truly incredible. If any Brides are looking for someone thats professional, on the ball, an absolute steal in price for the incredible skills Ruby has and want someone that immediately feels like a friend, Rubys your girl.

Wedding hair up

Ruby was excellent and understanding when doing my hair for my wedding. I was very nervous as I am qualified hairdresser and wanted my hair to be perfect. Since my wedding, I have used Ruby for my hair for now over two years. Highly recommended.

Look no further this hair stylist is the one you need!

Couldn鈥檛 have asked for a better hair stylist. She is very calm and very funny and done an amazing half up half down for my wedding day. Even all my bridesmaids were very happy
Thank you so much for all the laughter and hard work you are amazing and I highly recommend.

She鈥檚 exactly what you need! X

Ruby, such an amazing woman! Ruby did my wedding hair and my bridesmaids and maid of honour. And wouldn鈥檛 have had anyone else. She made everyone including my daughters and niece feel super comfortable and happy and took control with so much confidence and pride when I was running slightly behind on my wedding day 馃檲 she really put me at ease and when I wanted a certain hair style for my bridesmaids she put in her professional opinion and said the girls don鈥檛 have enough hair but instantly gave me an alternative which worked beautifully. Not only did she step up with that she took it upon her herself to help me get ready and make sure I was calm and collected getting all the way to getting in the car up to the castle. Definitely my go too. Couldn鈥檛 recommend her more. Thankyou ruby you absolute treasure xx

Amazing women

Ruby done my wedding hair back in 2010 and I've been with her ever since, even giving my babies their first cuts. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Nothing is to much for her and you feel comfortable within an instant.

The best of the best!

Ruby done my wedding hair in 2022 and I can鈥檛 put into words how incredible she is at what she does. My hair stayed in perfectly all day, so did my bridesmaids! Ruby made everyone feel so special and even stepped up at the last minute to fix my nans hair who wasn鈥檛 booked in, before we left for the venue. The trial was amazing and we tried so many styles and nothing was too much trouble. When you book with ruby you know your hair will look the best it ever will.

I would definitely book Ruby again 馃拕

Ruby did hair & makeup for my daughter鈥檚 graduation. Such a friendly person (even at 0630) she made my daughter feel comfortable and nothing was too much to ask. Makeup and hair was amazing which made my daughter confident on such an important day. Will be using Ruby again x

Ruby the miracle worker!

Oh where can I start leaving a review for divinely dolled?
From the first contact Ruby鈥檚 communication was excellent, she is the most down to earth, positive and fun person you could wish to meet, full of enthusiasm and ideas. Having Ruby as a supplier was an absolute dream, she was by far my favourite one! She arrived early on the day, was dressed immaculately, helped with loads of other bits on the day far beyond her remit and was a funny friendly face to have around. I really thoroughly enjoyed Ruby鈥檚 company!

We had planned to have a fairytale plait with hair extensions, which she helped me to order but on the day of my wedding I became nervous, thinking maybe the hair extensions were not the right colour I had bought. Ruby reassured me everything would be fine and created nothing less than a masterpiece. I had so many compliments on my hair and had never seen anything like it previously, she absolutely worked a miracle and added that extra special touch to my wedding even bringing flowers with her to add into my style finishing it perfectly!

Ruby also done my mums hair, 3X bridesmaids and toddler sons hair. My mum felt so special with her fancy hair Ruby had created, all of the hairstyles looked incredible. One of my bridesmaids had a scar across the top of her head she felt incredibly conscious about, especially being centre of attention and Ruby covered it perfectly giving my bridesmaid the upmost confidence. I couldn鈥檛 be more thankful for all of Rubys incredible work towards making my day so magical from all of the magnificent hairstyles to help getting me in my dress, watching my toddler to creating a wedding album for me!

Ruby truly made my dreams come true with my wedding hair, making me feel the best I had ever felt. Also seeing how confident and beautiful Ruby made my mum and bridesmaids feel was absolutely priceless and something I will always remember.

If you are looking for wedding hair of your dreams you really need not look any further!

Ruby is the BEST

Ruby did my wedding hair back in 2021 when some restrictions were still in place. During a very stressful time moving dates/ inviting and then uninviting people Ruby caused me no stress and was amazing at keeping me calm. On the day she arrived on time and did a LFT before arriving as per my venues rules and it was such a laugh getting ready with her. My hair was beautiful and exactly what I wanted. Highly recommend booking with her.

Just incredible

Ruby is amazing. So laid back in her manner but knowledgable and able to solve problems. Editing rehearsal hair until it was more than perfect. On the day she was efficient and helped break some tension with her warmth and jokes which was soo needed. I honestly couldn鈥檛 have asked for better.

Amazing hair stylist!!

I had Ruby do my wedding hair for myself, bridesmaids and other member of the bridal party. Ruby has attention to detail and all our hair looked amazing. The mother of the groom had her hair done she did not know how she wanted to have her hair but Ruby looked at her dress and helped her decide on the perfect hairstyle there and then, that went with her 1950's style of dress. Ruby is easy to chat to and puts you at ease! I would 100% recommend Ruby to anyone. Thank you so much for all you help on my wedding day!!
