WEDDING MAKE-UP & HAIR

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 specialise in enhanced natural make-up looks ensuring you feel like 'you' without feeling caked in make-up. I can create a wide range of looks, from natural to vintage and will listen to and work with your ideas. I love creating relaxed hairstyles incorporating braids and twists as well as more structured up-dos. I recommend holding a trial at least 12 weeks before your big day so that we can try out different bridal hairstyles and make-up looks until we have found your perfect one.

I am fully insured and use products by M.A.C, Bobbi Brown, Nars, Dermalogica, Armani, Chanel, Smashbox, Clinique, Clarins and other top brands.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

“Now everything has returned to some sort of normality I just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything. We all looked flawless and it was all thanks to you. We had an amazing day and your calming words were very helpful especially the advice of taking a step back and watching the day happen, I did just that and it was the best thing you could have told me to do. Thanks again and it was a pleasure to have you there on my special day.”

KELLY C - DALE HILL HOTEL

“Oh my gosh!!! What can I say about firstly Nicola. She was so amazing with the hair and make up for my twin sister myself and mother of the bride. From meeting at the trial we felt instantly like we were on the best hands!!!! To then the actual day with the dream team her and Amy..... You kept everyone so calm and relaxed, nothing was to much, you were brilliant and made every single person so so happy with their hair and make up and that is tall order for 6 bridesmaids, mother of the bride and finally the bride. The hairstyles were stunning- and literally amazing how you pulled it all of. Both of you really set the bar for what followed to be a truely magical day. Thank you so so much To you both!”

GEMMA B - TUNBRIDGE WELLS

“Thank you so much for the beautiful hair and make-up last Saturday. We were all delighted with the results and felt very special!”

SARAH P - TUNBRIDGE WELLS

Nicola was just amazing. Not only giving me the makeup and hair look I wanted, but also hanging out with her before the wedding - she set the tone perfectly and helped put my nerves at ease. I completely recommend her services to any bride.

NIKKI C - THE GEORGE INN

“Nicola recently did my hair for my wedding along with my bridesmaid and flowergirl. We were so thrilled with all of our hair styles- and it stayed in place all day! Nikki was so flexible with our requests and a great calming influence on the morning. I had a hair trial beforehand to work out what I wanted and her knowledge and expertise was greatly appreciated as she was able to recommend styles and guide us through timings for the morning of the wedding. Very talented lady in all styles - we had hair up, hair down and beautiful braids! I would highly recommend her!”

NAOMI F - UCKFIELD

“I had the best day I could ever have dreamed of. Two people outside our friends and family definitely stuck out on my wedding day and I’m convinced I wouldn’t have had such a flawless and incredible experience without them – you and Danni Beach, the photographer. Your calm aura, genuineness and professionalism was second to none. You turned Lynda and I into fairy princesses and our flower girls were simply beautiful, I felt extremely lucky to have you doing my hair and make-up and thank you so much for really going that extra mile to make my day just perfect.”

ARUNDELL - HEVER CASTLE

“I just wanted to send a message to say a huge huge thank you for your amazing hair and makeup skills on saturday. You did such an amazing job with us all and we felt so comfortable and happy on the day, you both made everyone look lovely! We had loads of comments from people on our hair and I've recommended you to all my friends and collegues. I had an amazing day am still piecing it together, but your relaxed influence in the morning and great skills were a part of that, so thank you!”

REBECCA T - RYE

You were such a calming element in amongst the excitement and nervousness, thank you so much for that.”

"Nicola was fantastic on our wedding day. She did my hair and make-up perfectly. She also did my bridesmaids hair which they loved. Nicola makes you feel at ease and is very friendly. She listens to what you want and suggests styles to compliment your best features. I would 100% recommend her for both hair and make-up for your special day. Thank you Nicola!"

SOPHIE D - WADHURST CASTLE

"Nicola is so lovely and calming. Honestly, it felt as though I was chatting with a friend whilst getting ready for my big day. My hair and make-up stayed in place all day and I had so many comments, I felt like a princess. My mum also had her make-up done by Nicola and she looked lovely. Thank you so much, you really are a star."

LAURA S - ST LEONARDS

"Nicola is an amazing talent. She is professional, creative, calm and super lovely! I can noth thank her enough for doing such a wonderful jon. She made me feel a million dollars and I would recommend her to any bride! Thank you Nicola you are amazing."

EMMA B - OXTED

A huge thank you to Nicola who did the hair & make-up for the bridal party at our wedding in Ticehurst last year.

From the trial session, where we tried lots of different, amazing braids, to the morning of the wedding when she kept everything so calm and friendly, it was a great experience. I have very curly hair which can be tricky to work with, but she found lots of styles that suited me.

After a very sleepless night, she made me feel like such a glowing & confident bride - my make-up lasted flawlessly all day. We got loads of compliments from our guests and I know she made my Mum (who never gets glammed up) feel especially beautiful. Would definitely recommend.
