Full Description
I'm Amy, a professional hair and makeup artist based in North Warwickshire. I provide bespoke hair and makeup services for all special occasions, such as weddings, proms and themed events. I specialise in vintage hair and makeup, so that anything from the bold, smokey looks of the 1920s right up to todays natural and flawless looks! My passion is to create your perfect style that will gain you plenty of compliments and help you remember your special day. I have plenty of experience, from working on films, music videos and photo shoots. As an animal lover, I use mainly cruelty-free and vegan products. All of which are of premium standard to ensure a natural, long lasting professional finish to your makeup, these range from Illamasqua, Urban Decay and Smashbox, to name but a few. I am a fully qualified artist, with a 1st class honours degree in specialist hair and media makeup and I’m supported by the Princes Trust! I have over 8 years of experience, with 7 years as a wedding photographer and 8 years doing hair and makeup. I relaunched my business in 2020 with a new look and more time to focus on it.

She was professional and lovely to talk to.
Amy did an absolutely fantastic job on my own and all my bridesmaids hair! She was professional and lovely to talk to. She listened to everything I wanted and did a perfect job. She was fantastic with my 8 year old niece also and she even gave me a bridal kit to help my hair though out the day! My hair lasted alllll day like it didn’t even budge she’s honestly fantastic would recommend her to anyone.

She was absolutely brilliant!
Amy did my bridal hair and make up, my sisters hair and my two daughters hair and she was absolutely brilliant! She was so brilliant with my youngest who’s five, and she looked like a princess when she’d done! Amy even went the extra mile and moved on to my wedding venue with us so that I could have some extra photos getting ready. I absolutely loved my hair and make up and felt so beautiful on the day. Thank you so much Amy you were amazing and I’d recommend you to anyone!

She did an amazing job.
Amy did the hair & make up for me & my maid of honour for my wedding day 2 weeks ago. She did an amazing job, was friendly & professional throughout and super accommodating. Amy put me at ease on the day & went above & beyond - even helping me down the stairs in my wedding dress! I’d definitely use Amy again to do my hair & makeup! Thank you! ☺️

I could not recommend her enough!
Amy did my wedding makeup and I could not recommend her enough! I was quite worried about having a lot of makeup on as I don’t usually wear a lot. Amy listened to what I wanted, is professional, used luxury skin care products and made recommendations based on my needs. I would use amy again in the future! Thank you Amy!

She did a phenomenal job.
Amy did my hair and make up for my wedding day and she did a phenomenal job. I absolutely loved her work! She made me and 3 bridesmaids look stunning for my wedding day and the look was natural like I wanted. She was professional and easy to communicate with. Amy even accommodated our change of location with very short notice. From the trail to the day Amy kept in contact with me. Checked if she could do anything extra to help. Her work was truly flawless! Would recommend without hesitation! 5⭐ Amazing young lady. Thank you xx 💕

Where do I begin...
Where do I begin... Amy kept in contact with me making sure I knew what I wanted and my mom wanted. we had bride, mother of the bride and flower girl hair and make up. At every stage I could not fault her! She was so lovely and so talented I am so lucky I found her. All day people were telling me and in photos tell me how beautiful I looked and how good my hair was. I could not recommend Amy enough and she will be who I recommend to anyone in the future. She really went above and beyond for us and I really adore her. Wish her all the luck in the world 🌎 xx

After booking and once you have your dress, I will get you booked in for a trial where we will go through what your perfect look is and how we will achieve it.

What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?

A good skincare routine will make all the difference for any makeup look. Keeping your skin fresh and clean will create the most prefect, flawless base to work on.

How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?

I advise her that she shouldn't be running around and to designate jobs to members of the bridal party so she can stay calm and focused on herself.

What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?

A good nights sleep will help you look well rested and stay calm. Although, I always give my brides one of my bridal survival kits to help keep their hair and makeup looking perfect all day and night!
