Frequently Asked Questions

When do I need to book?

As soon as you have your date and venue booked, get in touch. Brides book their hair and makeup years in advance. It’s never too early.

Shall I wash my hair on the morning of the wedding?

This depends on the style you’ve chosen; for hair down with curls, washing it on the morning of the wedding is ok using minimal conditioner to avoid flat and fly away locks. For any hair up styles it is best to wash it the night before, this allows texture and oils to develop. This makes hair easier to work with and improves longevity of the style.

When should I have my trial?

I always advise trials are carried out 2-4 months before the big day. This is where we can discuss styles, products and try out hair and makeup looks allowing us to create your perfect bridal style. A lot can change in the time it takes to plan a wedding.

Do you cater for darker skin?

I have an extensive makeup kit however skin tones and colours vary massively. If you have a foundation perfectly matched to your skin I am happy to use that on the day.

What time will you arrive on the day?

In the lead up to the wedding we will discuss numbers, location and timings. If start times are too early I have another artist I work with on larger parties. This will reduce the timings and allow a later start time if required.

Do you provide hair extensions?

No, any additional hair needed for a fuller style is to be purchased by the client.

What happens if I need to cancel?

If for any unfortunate reason you need to cancel the booking, the £60 booking fee is non refundable. Should you wish to cancel within 1 month of your wedding date the full amount is non refundable.


I consider myself a very reliable professional and have to date never had to cancel an appointment. However should an emergency occur or the ground swallow me up and I am unable to attend I will endeavour to have an equally talented artist there in my place or the full amount paid will be refunded.

Do you have minimum number requirements?

During peak wedding season (May-September) a minimum of bride plus 2 is required for weekend bookings. If you wish to book for less, this can be flexible though a supplement will be charged.

I cherry pick my kit from a number of high end brands including MAC, Charlotte Tilbury, Nars, Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder, Chanel and many more. 

Using only the best products on the market for my clients. 

The lashes I use are from a company called Lash Unlimited, they are an animal cruelty free brand and their glue is vegan, latex free and waterproof. 

No mink here!
