Could not recommend more!
Janet did my bridesmaids and my hair for my wedding and did an amazing job. Not only were we thrilled with our hair but she went above and beyond to make sure the morning went as smooth as possible. She was very easy to contact on the run up to the wedding and her prices are a very reasonable.

Fabulously skilled, accommodating and flexible
Janet and her team specialise in natural look makeup; If you want to look like the best, most polished version of yourself on your wedding day, she is the MUA to choose. I was really worried about getting my look right and getting the right shade foundation as a brown bride who doesn’t wear makeup day to day, but Janet put me at ease and really helped me to choose a look that would help me to feel like myself, and also tried and tested a few different shades until we got it right. She was so accommodating to my specific requests for my look (winged eyeliner, a big bouncy blow dry, headpieces for myself and my bridesmaids) and was a really calming presence on the day. Our hair and makeup looked fantastic and lasted all day. Would definitely recommend to all brides.

Great Service
Janet is very friendly and helpful. I kept being told I looked incredible and really pleased with the result. Loved the hair and my make-up looked good all day through. She also helped with my mother-in-law, grandma-in-law and my bridesmaid with their hair and make-up. Absolutely love all the job she did for us on the day.

Thank you so much to Janet and Sian for coming to Abergavenny and helping us get ready for my wedding! I'm so thrilled I found Janet! From the start, she understood exactly what I wanted and really listened. I wanted to look like myself on the day, but also really special and Janet knew exactly what to do. She's wonderful to be around and Sian was amazing as well. Thank you, thank you!

Make-up should last all day, but more should be added for the evening, as the lights go down the day time make-up looks less in evening light, so add to the eyes, lips and cheeks. Carry Lipstick for top up through out the photographs.
