This is the best team that you want for your wedding day hair and makeup and for any special occasion! Amanda and the team arrived early, and completed everyone on time, despite me and my sisters’ very long thick hair.Amanda's attention to detail is excellent, and the hair she created with her artistry was striking! Another very important aspect of her talent is her personality. She is very supportive, calming and positive. Key personality traits for one of the most important artists to hire on your wedding day. I would highly recommend.

I had several trials with other companies and individuals and no one actually had the time a patience to work with me to get the look I was after. Amanda and her team are incredibly skilled but also understand the needs of a bride even if we can be difficult. I just wish I had found them straight away.

They played a integral part in making our wedding special.The team were on hand from before the trial up until my wedding day. Amanda was amazing to work with and helped to relax me and her hair & make up skills are the best. I had 2 trials before and they both didn't come close. I would thoroughly recommend them.
