A professional from start to finish with a keen eye for detail!

Sally-Kate was such a positive and calming influence on the day and throughout the entire wedding planning process. She used her own personal experiences to offer advice as well as her many successful years in the wedding industry. What I was most grateful for, was the care she took with my mum's hair on the day of the wedding as she was very unwell but Sally-Kate was extremely flexible and was a wonderful support to myself and my mum. She made us all feel incredibly beautiful and took immense care with all our looks. At the trial stage, Sally-Kate tried many different looks with a veil and headband that I had picked to wear on the day, to showcase the different ways she could style my hair, giving me plenty of choice and food for thought. She was also happy to change my trial date after a family emergency, which I was very grateful for. She is a professional from start to finish and whilst she is a very busy lady, she did try and keep in touch as much as possible during a chaotic summer wedding season. The morning of the wedding flew by, but Sally-Kate stayed on after all the styling was complete to even help me get dressed alongside my bridesmaids and worked really closely with our photographer to make sure my hair was on point for those all important getting ready shots! I am so thankful to have met Sally-Kate and cannot thank her enough for her support, talented work and kindness these last 18 months. Wish we could do it all again! Sophie (02.09.23) xx

Just perfect

Sal is not only a talented bridal stylist with a wealth of experience, she is personable, friendly and will fit into your wedding morning as if she’s one of your friends.
She will work with you to your bring your vision to life and if you’re like me - (totally indecisive) she is calm and patient and is on hand via email to give her professional advice.
On my wedding morning, Sal was organised with a strict schedule to keep the morning on time (absolutely needed when organising 8 girls). Her services went far beyond my expectations - she was able to help me into my dress, keep me and my mum calm and even take some behind the scene pictures which she sent the next morning - a lovely surprise.

When hiring a bridal stylist like Sal, what you actually recieve is bridal care package which goes far beyond just your hairstyle for the day.

If you’re considering a bridal stylist, I would say it’s 100% worth the investment to have all the support you need for your wedding morning

Thank you Sal x x

An absolute dream

Sal is a true magician when it comes to hair. Everything looked perfect, and somehow natural - even though it clearly takes a lot of skill, experience and artistic vision. My updo lasted the entire day no problem and was super comfortable too.

Sal was also very professional, friendly and very funny; there was never a dull moment working with her. Can't recommend enough if you want to look amazing!

Best hairstylist you could ask for!

Sally-Kate was more than a hairstylist! She made everyone feel at ease and comfortable, going above and beyond for each individual and their hair type. The bridal party looked incredible! Couldn't have asked for a better stylist! Also, gave great tips on preparation for the wedding day, which I still use to this day! Thank you so much xxx

Perfect! Perfect! Perfect!

If you’re looking for someone who is kind, professional, organised and amazingly talented at what they do, then Sal is the person you need to style your hair on your big day!

The hair trial was a lovely & relaxing experience, a great chance to get to know each other before the day and talk about all things hair, weddings and an opportunity to try out some different styles. I opted to have hair extensions made which were gorgeous, and enjoyed browsing the accessories from small businesses that Sal recommended - I ended up later purchasing some gorgeous ceramic floral pins from one of these businesses, which looked great on the day.

Sal brought a fun and calming presence to the morning of my wedding. The hair styles that my four bridesmaids & mum had were gorgeous, and created by Sal from a quick look at inspiration pics the girls had. Very impressive!

I was in awe of all of the compliments I had on my hair throughout the day, and even the throughout the night when I was dancing away and my hair still looked like it had just been styled!!

Sal - you are so talented at what you do. You made me feel gorgeous and confident and you helped make the best day of my life so magical. Thank you xxx

Perfection!! Incredible at what she does!

I cannot recommend Sally-Kate enough! She goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect for you on your special day. From start to finish Sally-Kate’s process is seamless. She is extremely professional, organised, reliable and easy going. Before my trial I was nervous as I have very thick, very long hair that struggles to hold a curl. However, I was absolutely in awe of the results and how she created the exact style I envisioned that lasted the rest of the day! Following the wedding day, to no surprise everything went perfectly exactly as expected, even better than the the trial which I didn’t think was possible! Sally-Kate really is a star, extremely talented and an overall wonderful person! And I will never forget how helpful she was during this special time. Thank you xxx

A total dream!! 🤍🤍

Sally-Kate travelled to Bordeaux for our wedding this summer. She did bridal hair for my mum, 4 bridesmaids and myself and was absolutely incredible. I don’t think any of our hair has ever looked so good. She made it look so easy. I travelled to Sally-Kate for my trial and we had such a laugh together. She made me feel so comfortable and I knew instantly I could trust her with my wedding hair. The quality of Sally-Kates work was impeccable. She also created bespoke hair extensions for me that were so the best. The quality was really stunning. There really aren’t enough words to describe how insanely talented Sally-Kate is and I couldn’t recommend her more highly.

Such a wonderful experience

From my hair trial, to all the communication in between, to the day itself, Sally was consistently kind, professional and genuinely a really lovely person to be around and talk to. She is an expert at what she does and is so gentle and calm when doing it, and because of that, the morning of the wedding was such a brilliant experience. Sally truly just felt like an extension of my friends. I am so pleased and grateful that Sally did my hair for my wedding & would recommend her to anyone!

I heard about Sally through a friend and boy am I glad I booked her for my Wedding Day! She did incredible hair for me, both Mum's and 3 bridesmaids on the morning with such a calm presence it made the experience for all of us such a breeze. She tailored each style to suit our wishes and we had such a laugh too, I wouldn't have wanted anyone else! Simply perfect :)

The perfect up do!

Sally-Kate is amazing. Not only is she a wonderful person but her work is phenomenal! She treated me and my mum like princesses on my special day and I loved my hair so much - didn’t want to take it out! Her communication throughout was perfect and the trial was a lovely experience too. On the day she was helping with steaming and fixing dresses and stayed right until I left for the ceremony. Everyone loved her. Highly recommend!

Highly recommend!

Sally-Kate was brilliant from the moment I first made contact. Super friendly, organised, professional and quick to respond. No question or request was too much trouble.

I had a trial before the big day so we could test out a few different styles; and in the end Sally-Kate also made some hair extensions for me to wear as part of my finished “do”. I could not have been happier with the final look. I’ve never felt as glam or beautiful as I did on my wedding day. The look lasted all day perfectly - even with all the dancing.

My bridesmaids, Mum and Mother in law, all also had their hair done. And again were thrilled with how it turned out. They all looked gorgeous.

What’s more, Sally-Kate is such a dream to spend the wedding morning with. The atmosphere was relaxed, fun, and full of chat. Definitely recommend. I just wish Sally-Kate could do my hair every day!

Perfect in every way

Sally-Kate was an absolute joy to have as my wedding hair stylist! From the very beginning she was so helpful, kind and completely put me at ease. I was quite late in booking, made several last minute changes - adding my mum and sister in the days before the wedding, as well as deciding I wanted to change the style of my curls on the morning of the wedding, but Sally was so unbelievably accommodating. Above all, she was a joy to have with me getting ready on the morning, full of wedding knowledge and I was beyond happy with the beautiful style she created. Thankyou Sally!
