Wonderful wedding hair!

Katie was so professional on our big day. I have very curly hair and Katie encouraged me to be brave enough to have it up - which I rarely do. She gave me excellent guidance throughout the trials as I am notoriously indecisive! Katie helped make me feel so confident on the day and I had so many compliments about my hair - couldn’t recommend highly enough. Fabulous hair stylist.

Kate and her team were just amazing! The make up was stunning and exactly what I wanted and the hair was divine . They were smiles - start to finish!

I absolutely loved my morning of my wedding getting ready and that is due to Kate and her happy, positive, calm, reassuring, meticulous talented team. They made sure everyone looked and felt amazing and made sure everything was perfect. They were such a pleasure to spend time with and all my 6 bridesmaids and 2 little flowers girls just LOVED the experience they created of pampering and feeling incredibly beautiful 🥰 I was so incredibly happy with how everyone looked!!!

Amazing experience

Katie and the team were so friendly and put so much effort into the hairstyles and making us all feel comfortable. My hair stayed almost perfectly all day and until the early hours and looked beautiful. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to others.

Absolutely phenomenal

What can I say. No words can describe how amazing they are! Throughout the whole experience, from getting my hair trial to the big day, they were so so helpful.

On the day, they got so involved. They were upbeat, chatty and so supportive when everything started getting a little emotional. I can not thank them enough.

I was over the moon with the result. My hair did not budge once, it was still as beautiful at the end of the night as it was, once Emma had put the final Bobby pin in. Honestly I can not recommend them enough, they did an amazing job and are such wonderful people. Five star service throughout my whole experience!

Thank you so much ladies!

I wouldn’t have gone anywhere else.

Kate always makes you feel at ease when doing your hair. Even more so when it’s such a special occasion. The attention to detail is phenomenal.
If there’s anything you’re unsure about, Kate will help you. She tries a number on styles on your trial to find what you love and what suits you best.

Kate keeps the conversations flowing, engages with all of the party & makes sure everything runs as smoothly as possible.

There’s nowhere else I would have gone, I’d recommend Kate 100%!

Fantastic wedding hair

Katie and her team made the whole morning feel relaxed. It was like having another two friends as part of the bridal prep and the organisation was brilliant. All bridesmaids were pleased with their hair and Katie was flexible with the style of each lady to meet their needs. I was a indecisive, chilled out bride and Katie made every decision easy and fun to make, even to the last minute change of no headdress on the day.

Fantastic experience

Katie and her team are fantastic at what they do.
Really friendly, accommodating, and reasonably priced.
Had our hair trials at the salon, Katie listened to what we wanted, and I was able to trial different styles to make sure it was exactly what I wanted.
On the wedding day they arrived on time, put us at ease, and did a fantastic job on our hair. (Me the bride, 4 bridesmaids, MOTB MOTG and page boy. She went above and beyond to make us all happy and feel amazing.
The way she creates an updo on hair that you wouldn’t think would go up is amazing!
Thanks again.

I found a hairdresser and a friend in Katy!

What a service! I honestly can't thank you enough for everything you did for us, the morning of our wedding. From bridal hair to helping the children into their outfits, not forgetting the grooms hair too. You really did provide us with such a friendly professional service and we can't thank you enough for the time dedicated to us the morning of the wedding. I personally was so pleased to have found you, as having curly hair and very little confidence with previous hair dressers, I was worried I wasn't going to have my hair just as I had hoped for my wedding day but with you, this wasn't the case at all. You listened and was so helpful. I felt you was dedicated to my desired style from the off and in the end we achieved just that.

Thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart, I have not only found my future hairdresser going forwards but an amazing friend. It feels like I had known you for years and it has been a matter of hours.

Ladies, if your wanting the perfect bridal hair from a genuine, lovely hair dresser, this is the place to be. Don't pass on the opportunity, you won't be disappointed!

Highly recommend

Katie did mine, two of my bridesmaids, my mom and another guest's hair at my wedding last August. We were all so happy with out hair and we couldn't recommend Katie enough.

Katie was really friendly, helpful and professional through the booking process. From the trial to the wedding day, Katie and her colleague were really helpful with discussing what we were looking for and coming up with some great ideas and suggestions. Our hair all looked amazing, exactly what we wanted, easily lasted for the whole day.

I will be recommending Katie and her team to anyone needing wedding hair :)

Amazing bridal makeup!

Katie did bridal make up for myself, 2 bridesmaids and mother of the bride and groom. I honestly cannot thank her enough she did such an amazing job on everyone’s make up. She arrived in plenty of time to get everyone ready and did everyone’s makeup perfectly taking into consideration there skin type/ what they wanted. Everyones makeup lasted for over 13 hours till the end of the wedding. Katie is friendly and puts you at ease straight away. I would 100% recommend her for your wedding make up!

Wedding hair and make up for myself, bridesmaids, flower girls and mother of the bride

Katie and Emma did my wedding hair and makeup. They made everything run smoothly and everyone was made to feel welcome, even the children. Throughout the day I received lots of comments about my hair and make up.
My mom, bridesmaids and flower girls all looked stunning

Fabulous curly bridal hair 🤍

Katie was so wonderful from my trial to the day. I wanted to keep my hair super natural with my curls and she listened to exactly what I wanted. The curls she added at the front lasted all day and the beautiful beaded grips she put in at the back just gave the little added sparkle I wanted! On photos looking back it really was perfect and exactly what I wanted. Katie made myself, my sister as maid of honour and my mom feel so at ease on the morning and it was so lovely getting ready. Thank you so much!!
