Brides hair and makeup
I contacted Karen to request a hair and makeup trial. Karen responded quickly and clearly explained her services and costs.
Karen arrived on time and was happy to listen to my needs, as I don’t wear makeup at all and didn’t want to be overdone, but look natural. I have thick curly hair and always worry about how it will be handled. Karen knew how to make the most of my curls.
On the day of the wedding (17 August 2021)
Again Karen arrived on time. Karen had remembered what we genuinely chatted about and we chatted like old friends.
Karen is very friendly, helpful and listens well.
It was a pleasure to have Karen with me on the morning to do my hair and makeup and the proof of her amazing skills are in the compliments I received when people saw our wedding photos. Beautiful, stunning, amazing were words used to describe how I looked.
Brilliant job!! 😀

Amazing hair stylist
A few weeks ago, Karen did my wedding hair as well as my bridesmaids and two mother of the bride/groom. She was absolutely amazing! Karen completely understood the look I was after and I felt incredible. She was really flexible with the hairstyles when a bridesmaid wanted to change a small aspect of the style. But most importantly, Karen was so lovely and chatty, and put everyone at ease! She was like another member of the bridal party! Thank you so much for doing an amazing job :)Sent on 08/08/2021

Perfect Wedding make up
Karen was extremely helpful and responsive in the lead up to my wedding (including my cancelled date and my brain frazzle in the lead up to my actual date). On the morning of the wedding it felt like Karen was a friend rather than someone I'd never met prior to that morning. She kept me calm and the morning was relaxed, chatting whilst getting ready. My hair and make up were perfect for the day, as was my sisters bridesmaid make up. Safe to say its cry proof too (happy tears!). Many people have complimented the hair and make up since seeing photos. Thank you Karen xxSent on 26/11/2020
