Hair & Makeup for Herbal life active wear

July & August have been the busiest couple of months for weddings this year doing just over 20 weddings in the last 2 months.  Its been wonderful, It is truly lovely to be such a part of the brides wedding morning -I feel extremely fortunate and I’m  lucky enough to work with some brilliant people, especially my friend James White who’s hair studio I also have the pleasure of working at in The Lace market-Nottingham.  Its great to have a couple of wonderful assistants Beth & Joules who on larger wedding parties I couldn’t have be with out! With another 2o weddings to do before the year is out & winter 2014 also next year dates being booked up really fast I’d advise getting in touch soon if you would like me and my team to help create your Hair or Makeup looks for your special day.

I have recently enjoyed working on Campaigns for The Sun newspaper, Speedo swimwear, Herbal life active wear & Nottingham City Trams. Its great working on different jobs, helping to create the right look for the images required – I’m so looking forwards to seeing the images in print to share on my site.

This Autumn/Winter I’m going to be doing some makeup workshops for people looking to master different looks from the smokey eye to a perfectly sculpted base. Do please let me know if you are interested-I will be posting details soon!
