Fantastic & friendly service

Ruby was a friendly & bubbly hair stylist. Nothing was to much for her & she made me feel comfortable and relax. She made the whole situation calming and relaxing & even helped me into my dress. Nothing was to much for her!!

I would definitely book Ruby again 💄

Ruby did hair & makeup for my daughter’s 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

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!!

Roo is just AMAZING!🤩🤩

Where do I even start??
Roo is amazing at what she does! She is so knowledgeable when it comes down to hairdressing! Roo has been my hairdresser for a couple of years now and she was my sisters hair stylist for her wedding last year and omg she made my sisters hair look stunning, not only that she did my hair being the maid of honour and I just felt so pretty. I showed Roo a picture of what I wanted my hair to look like and just from a picture Roo was like ‘yes darling that’s fine I know what to do’ and just like that she did and I was so happy with it and not only that the other bridesmaids were jealous to the fact they said ‘we wish we got Roo to do our hair’

Roo is so lovely and such an easy person to get along with and is good at giving advice as to what she thinks may potentially look better. She is so professional when it comes down to her work and takes her time to make sure you get that perfect look.
Roo knows what she is doing and what she is talking about and I would recommend her to everybody! I wouldn’t go anywhere else and I’m so glad that I have chose Roo to be my hairstylist for my wedding next year😁🩷
All of Roo’s bridal hairs are just absolutely stunning and every bride pic I have seen that she has done just look beautiful!

Roo…you really are amazing!!🤩

Ruby the miracle worker!

Oh where can I start leaving a review for divinely dolled?
From the first contact Ruby’s 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’s 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’t 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!

The best of the best!

Ruby done my wedding hair in 2022 and I can’t 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’t 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.

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’t have asked for better.
