About Me


I am a Kent based mobile hair and makeup artist: specialising in bridal, photographic and hair and make up for special occasions. 

I am originally from Sunny South Africa and moved to the Uk in 2003. I then went on to study and I am qualified in NVQ 2 & 3 hairdressing. My passion lies within hair up,be it for weddings, special occasions or  avant-garde styles for those who are a bit more adventurous. I love being creative and making my clients feel at ease and comfortable. I pride myself in making each customer feel good about themselves and it gives me great pleasure in knowing that I have achieved this by helping create their chosen style.

 

I enjoy working with hair pieces and padding creating firm and structured shapes within the hairstyle to produce any look, from sleek 1950's to an outrageous and bold style. Combining pieces with your natural hair and enhancing the overall style with jewellery, fascinators, feathers, veils...........the sky is the limit.

 

I have a wide range of ideas, if  you would like a specific style, I will endeavour to recreate, although I do feel its best to put the clients personal stamp on it. 

 

I use professional makeup including MAC professional ,as well as a few of my favorite brands creating a flawless foundation base . I can create a classic natural bride or elegant vintage look to the more adventurous alternative looks such as pirate, gothic or steam punk.

 

Wedding themes to date: Vintage Tea & Vintage Glam, Pirate, Steampunk, Gothic, Boho, Rockabilly, Tim Burton, Festival/Game of Thrones and many more.

 

One sentence that would describe my personality: 

 

I am very chatty, outgoing, quirky, and I love all things vintage & pin-up, all things zombie, baking cheesecake and eating cheesecake :)
