The perfect hair and make-up artist!

Kirstie was absolutely wonderful from start to finish! She helped me to find the perfect hair style and make-up for the day, the trial was really helpful, and she also replied quickly to messages as the final arrangements came together. She was super organised which meant the wedding morning went really smoothly - and I was able to stay relaxed! She was warm and friendly throughout the whole process and helped put everyone at ease, including our littlest bridesmaid who was only six. The make-up and hair turned out beautifully and stayed in place all day despite the rainy weather. I couldn't have asked for a better hair and make-up artist and would highly recommend Kirstie. Thank you again!

May 2023 Wedding

Kirstie was fantastic right from her prompt response when we first contacted her. We only had 4 months to plan the wedding so her excellent organisation skills and flexibility were so helpful. Kirstie came to our home for the make up and hair trials on the day of our hen party and was patient with the many times we changed our mind on the style we wanted. When we initially booked Kirstie it was just for us 2 brides but we later decided to have 6 bridesmaids and mother of the bride and Kirstie was straight away able to form a team of 3 for hair and make up for everyone. On the day of the wedding, Kirstie and her team were punctual and brought a sense of calm to the chaos. They travelled to the venue with us to make sure we were all wedding-ready which helped with the pre-wedding nerves. Thank you Kirstie for being such an important part of our wedding day.

Wonderful.

Kirstie did everything that I asked for and made me feel like a real princess.
It was also great that I only needed one person to do amazing hair and breath taking make up.

Calm and relaxed :)

After the make up trial I knew I was in safe hands for my bid day. Kirstie is lovely and she did an excellent job, I felt beautiful and my hair was exactly as I wanted. She did a fabulous job of colour matching and using products that were right for me. My bridesmaid and mum looked beautiful too. We had a very relaxed morning and our looks lasted through the day.. my hair survived the windy weather and the dance floor too :) Thankyou x

A huge thank you

Kirstie - thank you so much for your hard work on my wedding day. From the outset, you have been professional and welcoming, creating a perfect clean and glowy makeup look - exactly what I wanted. Your lovely warm nature was perfect on the wedding morning as we were getting ready, and I am extremely grateful that you used your years of experience and talent to prepare my bridesmaids and I.

June wedding Hair and Makeup

Where do I begin? From the moment I first contacted Kirstie she was so lovely and responsive to my questions. I asked her for hair and makeup and then hair or makeup for my bridal party. At my trial she filled me with ease and was really flexible to change my look after I found another style I wanted to go with my dress. On the day Kirstie was calm and made me and my bridal party feel really relaxed. She was also not phased at all when my mum suddenly changed from hair to makeup and was so lovely to have a little goodie bag with samples in to keep makeup looking fresh throughout the day. Both our hair and makeup looked fantastic for the whole day even though it was nearly 30 degrees! Could not recommend a Kirstie enough:)

Happy with the service, would recommend.

Kirstie was very professional and gave me lots of good advice about make up and skin care. She would listen to want kind of make up I wanted and helped me to choose colours carefully.

Outstanding

I could not recommend Kirsty enough. From the very first appointment, I knew that Kirsty was the only person I wanted to do my Make Up. She went through different options with me, giving sound advice about colours and looks! Most importantly she was honest in how I looked!! I suggested something that she explored, we discussed and tried different depths and colours and I decided to go with her suggestion after all because she genuinely knows what she’s talking about. Her passion about make up is so clear, but I never felt like “another client”. I felt like everything was just for me; she made me feel so fantastic. The make up stayed all day (and I might have left it on for the next day… it looked great on day two too!!) There were 4 of us that had our make up done on the day (me, my 10 year old, my mum and 1 other) - she tailored everything and there were so many compliments to us all.
Kirstie made a little care package for the evening (including a little pot of eyelash glue, foundation etc. even tic taks!) which I haven’t heard other suppliers doing and even gifted my chosen lipstick as a present. Not only is she incredible in what she does, but she is also genuinely the loveliest person. She has such a gentle, calming presence and offered to help with everything - nothing was too much of an ask. Conversation easily flowed!
I am so grateful to have her recommendation and will never ever hesitate to recommend her to others.

Amazing make up artist

Kirstie was amazing from start to finish, lovely lady and always made time for me when I had questions. I would 100% recommend her and would go back again for make up. Everyone commented on how lovely I looked on my wedding day.

Kirsty was just amazing. I showed her a few pictures of ideas I liked for my wedding make up and she completely nailed it, couldn’t have been any happier with how beautiful she made me and my bridesmaids look. Can’t recommend her enough and so glad she was part of my special day!

Amazing & enjoyable experience

Kirstie was a pleasure to work with. Having her do makeup & hair at my wedding was one of the first (and best!) decisions I made while wedding planning. Kirsties makeup is flawless as seen by her work through pictures before , she is a natural at putting everyone around her at ease and she really listens to her clients. She went above and beyond her brief on my trial and wedding day and her sweet nature has put my mind at ease when getting ready.
My bridesmaids and I aren’t normally makeup people and having a darker skin shade we were nervous about looking over made up or too pale but the makeup looked natural and each of us were incredibly pleased with the result. I would happily recommend Kirstie to anyone wanting to have a enjoyable experience whilst looking naturally beautiful!
