I provide mobile bridal hair styling and make up in Sherborne, Yeovil and all over Dorset and Somerset. I started hairdressing after I left college working for local salons before deciding to go freelance with my own mobile business. I always take the time to get to know my clients and develop good relationships with them and consequently often found myself being asked to become part of their wedding preparations. It is always a great honour to be trusted with such an important part of somebody’s big day and I thrive on knowing that I can add a professional yet personal touch to the experience of brides, their mothers and their bridesmaids.
Alongside bridal hair styling I also found brides were often interested in getting their make up done professionally. Although I studied beauty at college I decided to expand my qualifications into nails, manicures and facials so I can now offer a full range of bridal beauty treatments to the bridal party.
Consultation & Trial
In order to make sure we create the look you dream of, it is a good idea to schedule a trial consultation as soon as you are ready, or at least 6-8 weeks before your wedding date.
This can take place in your home or at my home studio and will include an in depth consultation looking at your hair and skin type. We can look at pictures or photographs for inspiration or you may already have a style in mind, and using that we will try out a couple of different styles to make sure your wedding hair and makeup will be perfect.
Organisation is key to a successful wedding and I will work alongside you to develop a schedule for hair and makeup on the wedding day to make sure you are confident that everyone will be looking their best and there will be no last minute panics.
On your wedding day I will arrive at your home or chosen venue in good time and will work to the schedule we discussed at your trial, so that you can all sit back, relax and enjoy being pampered. For larger wedding parties or early start times I’ll sometimes bring an assistant who can help with preparing bridesmaids hair and providing manicures to your bridal party if required. Our aim is to keep the preparation period as calm and relaxing as possible, as we believe it is an important part of your wedding and we want you to enjoy being looked after on your special day.
I will stay with you as long as you need me for any last minute touch ups to your hair and make up just before you leave for your ceremony, so you can relax knowing there is a professional on hand if there are any problems.
Over the years I have worked at many wedding venues and hotels including Holbrook Manor, Chaffeymoor Grange, Brympton House and Orchardleigh House getting brides and their bridesmaids ready for their big day. I also visit bridal parties at home and will arrange a trial and consultation with you prior to the wedding to make sure your hair and make up will be perfect on the day.
Offering a complete hair and makeup service for weddings can really take the stress out of the big day, especially as I will visit your hotel, home or wedding venue at the best time for you, meaning you don’t have to worry about visiting multiple stylists or meeting different appointment times. Contact me if you have any questions about bridal hair styling.
