I work with Hair Stylists who are trained, qualified and can cut hair to an extremely high standard. I find with a lot of todays requested styles, often the stylist has to be able to have a broad skill set, understand peoples hair colours, textures, cutting techniques and the experience to know just what your hair can actually do on the day. Veil placements, head-pieces, fascinators and floral garlands need to placed appropriately to each individual and unique head shape.  This does show in photos.

I have a compendium of recommended Hair Stylists and Salons I can give to you. They are all qualified professionals who can do a multitude of styles from a simple blow wave to intricate up do’s, they can also fit and work with hair extensions on the day.  

Have a look at the gallery below at some of the styles they have created.

“I cannot recommend Deirdre enough for the absolutely fab job she did on my wedding day. Deirdre is an expert at working with all types and tones of skin and she listens and does exactly what you ask her to. I had stressful last minute breakouts and Deirdre did such a fab job, that you just wouldn’t be able to tell. She was very flexible and patient during the make-up trial and really helped me choose the perfect skin shade, lipstick shade etc. She provides a complete package,,with her wonderful hair stylist team too! Deirdre made sure till the last minute that I looked absolutely perfect and did her job with a warm heart and lots of smiles. A big THANK YOU once again.”

“From the start, Deirdre was the height of professionalism and a delight to work with. Given I am someone that doesn’t wear a lot make-up and don’t know much about it Deirdre took the time to get to know me and what I wanted to achieve with my wedding right from venue, hair, flowers and dresses.”
