Frequently Asked Questions:
Is it necessary to have a trial?
It's not essential, but it is highly recommended! I have done a few weddings without trials before, and it does make the whole experience a bit more rushed. That's just not how I want you to feel on your wedding day! It also means I know what length and texture your hair is, how it holds a style. We can see how your skin is, and talk about. what steps you can take to get it into top condition in the run-up to the big day, and it means that if the make-up is likely to move around or smudge, we know and can make appropriate adjustments to the look.
Should the bridesmaids have a trial?
Not usually, but it's perfectly OK if they want to, and if it's within your budget.
Will you need an assistant?
This depends on the size of your bridal party and the time at which you need to be ready. I work quite quickly compared to most artists, so can manage a reasonable amount people but if you're worried about it feeling rushed, or your ceremony is early in the day it may be best to have two or more artists to make sure everyone is ready in time and you feel relaxed.
Do you do lashes?
I don't do semi permanent lashes, or extensions. I do do individual lashes for just the day, or strip lashes, and these are included in the price of your make up.
Do you do hair extensions?
I can apply and style clip ins or a hair piece for the day, but I don't do bonds or weave. Clip in wefts and hair pieces need to be supplied by you, and its really helpful if you have them for the trial. Synthetic hair pieces will only work if they are in the style you want your hair on the day e.g. straight or curled.

Creative & Talented Must Have!!
Creative and talented! I truly can't praise Hayley enough for working her magic on my big day. I had quite an intricate dress and Hayley sculpted my hair into an artistic yet elegant style which complemented my dress beautifully. Not only that but my fabulous make-up was photo perfect all day long...and we were still going at 3am!! With amazing professionalism, wonderful patience and her bubbly personality, Hayley was just the tonic for prepping us all the morning of my wedding. And she taught me so much about make-up too!!Sent on 11/07/2016
Cant thank you enough
It was a perfect day and I was so happy with my hair and makeup and the girls too. Everyone looked amazing. My makeup stayed on so well that when I woke up on Sunday it still looked flawless even my lashes were still on! You did an incredible job and stayed so calm despite the time and the number of us. You were flexible and helpful and I would definitely recommend your skills and services to anyone. Thanks for helping me feel so special and beautiful. I gave a brief of “red carpet, Hollywood glam” and I wanted to feel like a movie star and that’s what you did. Such an important part of how I felt that day. Your skills are fantastic and your personality really helped to put me and my girls at ease. Can’t thank you enough.Sent on 21/02/2020
The search ends here!
I have always been a little dubious when getting my makeup done due to the countless times Ive ended up looking like a drag queen after a "professional makeover" but i needn't have been. Hayley was very friendly and professional, she felt like part of the wedding party. I loved how she did my makeup and felt like the beautiful bride I had dreamed about. My sister was one of my bridesmaid and said "its the best Ive seen my make up ever look". I would definitely recommend Hayley!Sent on 29/07/2016
