Highly Recommended

Melinda did my wedding hair and make up back in October and I was so happy with it. I changed my mind about both my hair and make up a couple of times and she was very patient with me, even offering a discounted second trial. Her prices are also very reasonable considering what some people try and charge for weddings. I would definitely recommend her!

On a side note, she also taught me that you should brush your hair from the bottom up which has helped massively with my long, knotty hair! Thank you very much, Melinda and sorry it's taken so long to write the review!

Recommended

After getting in contact with Melinda, her prices for hair and make-up were good, and well below what I had been quoted from someone else. Melinda was very professional and friendly, and was able to create exactly what I wanted for my wedding day, and that was a miracle as I was a very fussy bride! For my make-up Melinda managed to work around my tears on the day, and make me look fresh and pretty! My hair I loved, and Melinda was able to blend in extensions to my hair for extra volume. Everyone commented to me "your hair looks so lovely, who did it?" I couldn't wait to take my veil off so that I could show my hair off to everyone! I would have no problems recommending Melinda to anyone for a special occasion.

5 star recommendation!

Melinda has done my hair and make up twice. Once when I was a bridesmaid and then recently when I was the Bride! On both occasions, both hair & make up was perfect and received many lovely comments. Melinda''s calm but organised nature made the wedding preparation relaxed and stress free!

I was touched by Melinda''s professionalism and calm nature

Melinda put alot of time and effort into mine and my bridesmaids hair and make-up for my Wedding on Sat 7/7/07. It was such a beautiful and special occasion. I was touched by her professionalism and also her calm nature which helped me emensely before the ceremony. I am so happy that I made a great decision in having Melinda on my Wedding Day.

I felt like a Princess...

Melinda did a great job with me and my bridesmaids, I would definitely recommend her. I really felt like a Princess and everyone I work with couldn’t believe how I looked as I’m normally in shirts and trousers! My husband said wow when he saw me.

Melinda did such a superb job on all our hair - we loved the styles and they lasted until 5am in the morning when we finally left the party! I shall certainly be recommending her to friends and family.
