    Couldn't ask for anyone better

    I can't thank Lauren enough for her services. She stepped in around 2 months before my wedding after my original MUA dropped out and Lauren did everything she could to put me at ease, both at the trial and on the day. I loved my final look and felt so comfortable all day. Lauren did an amazing job using only Vegan and Cruelty-free products, I couldn't ask for anything more.

    Amazing service. Highly recommended

    Lauren was amazing from the start. Friendly, reliable and professional.
    As someone who never wears makeup she made me feel extremely comfortable and confident with myself. We had a trial a few months before where Lauren worked her magic and also advised me on products and treatments for me to try in the run up to my wedding day.

    On the day Lauren arrived early to work on my MOH, Mum and myself. She did an absolutely amazing job. I can't recommend Lauren enough!

    Just amazing

    Lauren was amazing throughout the whole experience. She was flexible, letting me make continual changes to which bridesmaids were being done, even the day before.

    She was always a willing ear for me to ask questions, have a moan or just vent for a second.

    She is the utmost professional and just perfect to keep me calm for the morning of, but was still cracking jokes and making me laugh.

    I honestly cannot recommend Lauren enough and I feel that not only did I find the perfect person to do my hair and make up, I also made a friend.

    Beautiful styling for our day!

    Wow - we would highly recommend! Not only was Lauren an excellent make up artist and hair stylist, she was lovely to work with throughout the wedding process. She was always responsive to queries, willing to take suggestions on board but very knowledgeable and reassuring. I ended up changing my mind about make up after my original trial, Lauren was really understanding and happy to find time for a second trial which was really reassuring. On the day of the wedding, she was organised and helped out with so much more than just hair/make up. A massive thank you to Lauren for all her hard work and support throughout the process!

    Excellent in every way

    I was initially very nervous about being able to find a suitable hair style for my wedding due to how thin it is. However, when Lauren came to do the trial not only did she put me at ease but she created the most incredible style for me. I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was. Coupled with the amazing makeup, even though I am an ‘older’ bride, I felt incredibly special. Thank you Lauren for giving me the confidence to enjoy my wedding day. X

    Lauren O Makeup Beauty Hair's reply:

    Thank you so much Lorraine, it meant to world to see you smiling at the end of your trial, just as much as on the big day. I'm so glad you loved your look, you made an absolutely beautiful bride xx

    Wedding Hair & Make Up

    Lauren was a joy to have as part of my wedding day. She had a tight schedule having to do both my hair & make up as well my two bridesmaids before 10am. She is very friendly knowledgeable & positive & I had lots of compliments on the day. Big plus was that she works with vegan products which was essential for me. I couldn’t fault her 😊

    Lauren O Makeup Beauty Hair's reply:

    Thank you Cheryl, I was so happy to be able to make you feel comfortable with everything from the products to your look, and having such a handsome groomsdog on the morning was an added bonus!

    Makeup and hair for wedding.

    My daughter and I felt really relaxed at our appointment we had travelled from Northern Ireland for my sons wedding and needed some one to do hair and makeup . Laureen listened to what we wanted and did not ‘overdo’ our make up .:We both felt very comfortable with the end result. . My daughter had her hair done too and several people commented on it during the day. We were both very pleased with the end result..

    Fabulous experience from start to finish

    I had seen Lauren’s work first hand at my friends wedding (she did the brides makeup) so I knew I was in for a treat when I booked her to do my hair and makeup. She did not disappoint. From start to finish she was professional, friendly and made me feel at ease. She really listened to what I asked for and offered me advice on how we could achieve the look I wanted. She worked her magic and my hair and makeup looked stunning. Would absolutely recommend, she is fantastic!

    Incredible!

    Lauren is amazing! She did both my hair and make up for my wedding (without a trial) and it was perfect. She is warm and friendly and just lovely to talk to, she put me at ease from the start and I can’t recommend her enough. My hair and makeup looked great all day and all night, I had many compliments. She offers great value for money and the whole experience was more than 5 ⭐️!!
    Highly highly recommended.

    Fantastic, couldn’t ask for anything more.

    Lauren is fabulous. She puts you at ease from the moment you contact her. We really enjoying our trial because Lauren was happy to try any ideas that we put to her. (Plus her home studio is amazing!)
    On the day itself, she was great with everyone. Lauren has this knack of knowing when a silly joke is needed to put everyone at ease.
    Definitely book her, she is wonderful.

    Thank you so much - I had an amazing time and we had such laughs from the trial until the day itself. It's great to know my bad puns are appreciated x

    Amazing make up artist, the one you want on your special day!

    Lauren was amazing, she made me feel completely at ease as I'm not usually much of a make up wearer and didn't want to look super dolled up. Lauren was able to make me look like me but a million times better and definitely camera ready! She really helped me to work out what sort of look I wanted, was very creative and flexible. I can't recommend her highly enough.
