Creating an enhanced version of you
Being a bride is a wonderful experience and I take great pleasure in helping to create your desired look, making you feel beautiful and special on your big day.

I love creating relaxed hairstyles incorporating braids and twists as well as more structured up-dos. I work with lots of different hair types and lengths and I use different methods to achieve your desired look. I use a range of good hair products by Bumble and Bumble, Tresemme, Aveda and more.
I recommend holding a trial at least 12 weeks before your big day. Your trial will last between 2-3 hours and it is a great opportunity to try out different looks until we find your perfect style. You might come with lots of ideas for us to try but if you find yourself struggling, please don't panic. I am here to help you and often a starting point is all we need.
I specialise in enhanced natural make-up looks ensuring you still feel like 'you' on your wedding day. Your make-up will feel light and invisible, whilst allowing your natural beauty to shine through. I use a range of products by M.A.C, Bobbi Brown, Nars, Dermalogica, Clinique, Armani, Chanel, Smashbox, Charlotte Tilbury and other top brands.

I will organise a schedule with you in advance of the big day to ensure that everyone is ready on time. My years of experience mean that I am able to run things smoothly, at a relaxed pace whilst offering gentle encouragement and assistance as needed. If your bridal party number is over 3 for hair and make-up, I will bring along a fellow stylist to assist me. I always work with the bride last, mainly to keep hair and make-up looking as fresh as possible. The other reason is to help steady the nerves. That last couple of hours simply whizzes by and it can start to feel a little overwhelming, so having that time to sit and enjoy a bit of pampering can be the best tonic.

MINIMUM PARTY NUMBER
Please note that a minimum party number of bride + 1 applies between April and September.
ADDITIONAL HAIR AND MAKE-UP TEAM
In parties over 3 people for hair and make-up, it may be necessary for me to bring along another hair and make-up artist for an additional charge of £50 plus their travel.
A £100 deposit is required at booking, which guarantees your wedding date and becomes non-refundable three months before the wedding. The deposit will be deducted from the final wedding day balance. Please note that your booking is only confirmed upon receipt of a deposit.
Travel is included in the price up to 10 miles of Wadhurst, East Sussex. After that, travel is charged at 50p per mile. A set travel fee of £30 is applicable for train travel into London.
I hold wedding trials throughout the year at either my home studio or at your home. Saturday appointments are only available outside of peak wedding season (April to September).
Trial payments are due two days before via bank transfer. Wedding day balances are due four weeks before the big day. Payments can be made via bank transfer - details will be sent via invoice.
If your wedding is cancelled or postponed due to Covid-19 restrictions, your deposit will transfer to your new date. In the event that I am not available on your new date, a fellow hair and make-up artist will be sourced or your deposit will be refunded.
“Could not recommend Nicola anymore :) I absolutely loved my hair and make up on my wedding day. It was exactly what I wanted, it honestly couldn’t have been any better! And it looked the same right up until bed time! My mum loved her make up too and she always hates her make up, so quite the achievement! I couldn’t have asked for a better person to spend my wedding morning with. Thank you isn't enough, but thanks you.”
