Welcome to Hair & Makeup by Gabrielle. I specialise in occasion and wedding hair and makeup to enhance your natural beauty.
I’m based in Pinner, London, and have more than 8 years' experience in the beauty industry. I’m passionate about helping you to be your best self, using modern techniques to create long-lasting looks that will stay fresh and gorgeous until well after the party’s over.
My approach is totally bespoke to every client I work with. Your beauty is unlike anyone else’s, so it’s important that I create a look that’s unique to you, that reflects your personality and that you feel comfortable and happy with. My goal is that you look in the mirror and see the most polished, glowing version of yourself. That way, you’re guaranteed to head out to your event smiling more, standing tall, and feeling more confident.
Having your hair and makeup done is a chance to feel pampered, and my friendly, approachable style will help you to relax and enjoy the experience. Please go to my website www.hairbygabrielle.co.uk to find out more about my work.
If you’ve got any questions or if you’d like to have a chat and book in a trial, get in touch.
Whether it’s your wedding, prom night or party, I’d love to help you look and feel amazing.
I look forward to hearing from you soon. Gabrielle x
Frequently Asked Questions:
How long do you allow for each person's hair and makeup on the day?
I usually allow couple of hours for the bride's hair and makeup, and an hour to hour and a half for others in the bridal party. However it all depends on the required style. Timings can be discussed at your trial run when more information about required hairstyles and makeup is provided. There is no time limit during your trial run.
Do you charge travel costs?
There's no travel costs for areas within approximately half an hour drive from where I live (HA5 3AR). Travel cost may apply for other areas but it all depends on the size of the booking etc. Please include the location of your wedding in your email when contacting me so I can get back to you with an accurate quote.
When should I wash my hair before the trial run?
I usually ask my brides to wash their hair the night before the trial as hair can sometimes be easier to work with when washed in advance. However, if you have an oily scalp and tend to wash your hair everyday then this is also fine as long as your hair is washed and dried at least couple of hours before your appointment.
Do I need to pay a deposit to secure my wedding date?
Yes. A non-refundable deposit of £50 is required to hold the date of your wedding in my diary up until your trial run. This amount is then taken off the cost of your trial.
Which areas do you cover?
I'm based in Pinner, Middlesex but there's no real limit to how far I would travel to for a wedding. If you like my work and would like to book me for your wedding day I'm more than happy to come to you wherever you are in or outside of London (travel costs will apply).

A talented angel
I was so happy with my wedding hair and makeup by Gabrielle. She did an amazing job, never thought I could look so nice! Not only is she super professional, she has a lovely gentle personality and was a great calming influence on the big day which was exactly what I needed. I would definitely recommend her!Sent on 25/10/2018

Super talented and a delight to work with
As soon as Gabi was about 5 minutes into my hair trial, I was pretty sure I was going to book her. She listened carefully to what I wanted before tweaking it to actually suit me, and making me look AMAZING.Sent on 12/06/2019
On the day, she brought an assistant along as my two adult bridesmaids also had hair and make up, and my mum had her hair done too. Both Gabi and her assistant Rebecca were warm, friendly, professional and a little bubble of calm in the mayhem of a wedding day. She sorted out my veil perfectly (coming up with a solution that meant my bridesmaids didn’t have to worry about swapping combs over when I wanted to take it out) and also took some beautiful photos of me getting ready. I would recommend her over and over again - what a talent, and so pleased I was able to work with her!

Don't look anywhere else!
Gabi did hair and make-up for my wedding last Saturday (June 2019). I was quite nervous (despite having had a trial run a few weeks earlier) as I was undergoing medical treatment which meant my hair was thinning and was also grey! However, Gabi made me feel very at ease, made my hair look full of body (she knows a lot of tricks!) and gave me a beautiful make-over which lasted all day even in 27 degree heat! She and her colleague Becky also did hair and make up for my Mum and my two bridesmaids, all of whom were delighted with the results. My Maid of Honour has very thick and heavy hair and only discovered at the end of the day that Gabi had put in 47 hair pins - she was not going to let that hair fall down! As well as being very skilful, Gabi is a really lovely person and I very much enjoyed spending time with her. I highly recommend her.Sent on 06/06/2019
