Kind Words

Sam did both hair and makeup for me for my husbands 40th party and she did an absolutely amazing job! she was easy and efficient to deal with when making the booking and on the day. she listened to my ideas about the look I wanted and was also helpful and able to offer her thoughts and advice. The results were stunning. I felt absolutely amazing at the party and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for bridal and event hair and makeup. I would definitely use her again!

Sam did my hair and makeup for my wedding last summer and with her assistant also did makeup for my four bridesmaids. I cant recommend Sam enough! Initially I chose her from her fab photos on her website, and the fact she was really quick to respond to emails and very helpful and understanding. That approach was 100% reflected throughout the whole experience. I had some tricky timings on the day itself and she was fantastic at creating a plan for how to get everyone sorted in time, and working out all the details. I loved my hair and makeup- it was even absolutely right first time when we did... Read More

What can I say?! I would recommend Sam to anyone! (and I don't say that lightly) I had a bad experience with my original hair and makeup lady so, my daughter found Sam! She was warming and professional from the trial to my big day, I'm sure all you ladies can understand I didn't really trust anyone after my experience (so much stress) but Sam was amazing! the communication was 100% (which is very important) and the result....well, 100% what myself and daughter asked for! I had compliments all day how I looked! Thank you Sam! you are truly a lovely/understanding person that listens! xx

Sam did my wedding makeup back in August along with my bridesmaids and mother of the bride. We looked fab and the makeup lasted all night, in fact my eyelashes were still in tact the next morning! Sam was lovely and friendly and put everyone at ease on the morning! Thank you again!!

I can't recommend Sam highly enough. She created the most beautiful hair and makeup for me, my bridesmaids and my mums. She's professional yet friendly and knew exactly what I was after when we chatted at my trial. I wouldn't have had anyone else making me look beautiful on the biggest day of my life! Thank you Sam!

Sam and her assistant did my wedding hair and makeup along with my bridesmaids. They both did a fantastic job and were very professional. I was very pleased with the end result and they kept me calm even when timings got pushed back due to bridesmaids being late. Highly recommend :)

Sam did my daughters makeup for her 18th birthday party. Steph doesn't normally wear makeup so Sam kept her makeup light and natural, it was perfect.
She's friendly and professional making Steph feel completely at ease for her first time having makeup applied by an artist.
I cannot recommend Sam enough, thank you so much.
