"I'd just like to say thank you so much Louise for doing such a wonderful job for me on
my wedding day!
As you may have guessed right from my initial emails, I am so incredibly fussy with my appearance and rarely trust anyone else to make me look how I'd like! I was terrified of looking too 'done' or looking quite dated and was so worried that my groom wouldn't like the look I went for as it wouldn't reflect the 'real me'. But in the morning from the minute you arrived you were fantastic. You're so friendly and easy to talk to that I didn't feel awkward at any stage asking for certain little things to be tweaked to my liking. The result was wonderful. Despite worrying that it wouldn't happen, I felt beautiful on my wedding day, like the best most attractive version of myself and a lot of that is down to you. I'll never forget John's face when he first saw me and how he kept telling me how I couldn't have looked more beautiful that day. It was all I could have asked for, it meant so much.
Another thing I am so grateful for is how much you helped me that morning. I never realised how nervous I would actually be and it never occurred to me how everyone else would be so busy with other things! But I had you as my right hand lady, helping me into my dress and on with my veil and my shoes, finding anything I needed and helping with all the little touches. I really would have struggled without you helping me the way you did and I don't know how I would've coped without you (it would probably have resulted in frustrated tears!) and for that I am so grateful to you.
To any future brides reading this, hiring Louise for your big day will be the best choice you ever make.

“My daughter got married last summer and as mother of the bride I wanted my hair to look special. I’ve got short, thick hair and don’t normally do anything in particular with it so really didn’t know what to do. Louise has a real eye for what looks good for all types of hair and faces and when she’d finished mine I felt amazing! The bridesmaids had long thick hair, my daughter long fine hair and me short and thick; nothing phased Louise and she transformed all of us into looking and feeling a million dollars. Louise was a quiet, gentle and confident presence as we got ready on the morning of the wedding and she was a delight to have around. I recommend Louise unreservedly.”
"There was no doubt in my mind who I wanted to do my bridal hair for my wedding. Me and louise worked together for just a short while when we first met, but this was meant to be for one reason only for us to meet. She is such a superstar I call her my female karl (my husband). There is no other person I needed to be with me on the morning of my wedding, I can't put into words how calm and happy she can make you feel in one moment. You will never meet a nicer person who EVERYONE loves!. And for her to be there on that one special day making you look and feel beautiful is so important. She puts all her passion and love into what she does and she is truly brilliant at styling hair- a natural. When we had my hair trial she spent ages perfecting the look and she then showed me and I said that's it- it didn't need changing at all, she had listened to my needs and wants. She just laughed at me saying do you want to try anything else or shall we try putting a little more up- there was nothing needing to be changed. I am a perfectionist myself and work in the bridal industry so I have seen ALOT of styles/weddings and she styled my hair in one go so fabulously. I loved my hair just as much as her! Thank you to the moon and back! X"
"Louise was recommended to me by my wedding party planners, and as soon as we met I knew that she would be great. She's very friendly, personable and got on with everyone really well. She was really open to suggestions and looking at photos to get an understanding of the overall style of the wedding and hair
styles we liked.
At the trial on me and my bridesmaids, she really went over and above to make sure it was right, and after the trial I had absolutely no worries about our hair at all. On the big day, she worked fast and precisely and created the exact hair I wanted for me and my bridesmaids, it lasted all day and even after some serious dancing!
I would certainly use Louise again and can't recommend her enough for her friendliness, professionalism and total awesomeness at hairstyling!"
"I was a bridesmaid for my sister's wedding last summer. I have very thick hair which I can never get to do what I want it to. Louise, however was incredible! She did my hair beautifully in curls and a waterfall effect which I have been trying to do myself for years and never been able to achieve! I ran around all day frantically and my hair did not come out of place or fall out. Louise got to know my hair, what I wanted - what my sister wanted - and was a calming influence in a sea of madness on the morning. She provided a wonderful experience from beginning to end. I will definitely be recommending her to all my friends and using her when hopefully my day comes!"
"Working with Louise was an absolute pleasure both leading to and during the wedding day for my friend Rachael. Her approach ensured the individual was made to feel comfortable and beautiful, and that the style suited the brides and bridesmaids individualism. Her skill, attention to detail and professionalism all made the wedding day a special experience and I would not have been the same without beautiful hair and makeup by Louise. I have no hesitation in recommending Louise, as she has incredible skill in making the bridal party feel at ease and feel beautiful on such a special day"
"Louise is exactly the sort of person that you would like to have around you on your wedding morning. She helped to keep us all calm, whilst being cheerful very early in the morning, and managed to get my hair and my five bridesmaids all ready and feeling beautiful. As soon as I saw how she managed to coax my hair into curls at my trial I knew I had to book her. She understood what look I wanted to go for and her final design was better than I could have imagined. She listens really carefully to what you want and don't want and really ensures you are 100% happy with the final outcome. I was mostly worried about the curls dropping out as the day wore on but they held perfectly and even lasted throughout our long haul flight the next day! She made me look and feel like a Princess and really did create something really special for my big day and not a hair fell out of place. I will recommend her to everyone I know, thank you so much Louise x"
