Full Description
I would love to be involved in your special day, whatever the occasion. I have an abundance of experience and have done my fair share of weddings. However, I am also frequently making people look pretty spectacular for other occasions too. It is so important to make sure that everything is just so on your special day and choosing the right person for the job is extremely important. Generally, the saying is you get what you pay for but I like to pride myself with reasonable prices, which are affordable for everyone.

Most incredible hair lady ever!
Where do I even start?! Ellie was absolutely amazing!! From my hair trial to my wedding day, she was professional, organised and so very friendly. She put me completely at ease and worked wonders with my fine and thin hair. This woman is simply the best and she made me and my Mum and Bridesmaids feel like a million dollars on my wedding day. She even cleared up our mess in the chaos of leaving to get to our wedding (what a saint!) The girls and I all said that come the end of the morning, she felt like one of our close friends and that she would be joining us to the ceremony! Our hair stayed in all day and I was just sad to take it out in the evening. I’ll recommend her to anyone because she is just the best lady you will ever meet and she will make you feel like a queen. Thank you again Ellie!! 💕🙌🏻

Ellie is hands down THE Updo Girl
Ellie did my hair and my mums hair for my wedding. I cannot recommend her enough. She is such a warm, friendly and lovely person and made us feel not only throughout the whole process (trial and on email) in such safe hands. It felt like I was getting ready with a best friend on my wedding day and she made our morning fun. She is an absolute pro at what she does and can create absolutely anything you want and make sure your hair looks exactly how you want it. I was extremely indecisive and kept changing my mind and so it was lovely to have someone like Ellie as my stylist because she was unbelievably patient, listened carefully to everything I wanted and was very happy to keep changing everything until we got it exactly how I wanted it. She is very highly skilled and has a huge talent. She made me feel so beautiful on my wedding day and made my mum (who is very fussy with her hair!!) look and feel beautiful. I faffed around a lot researching and asking around trying to find the best person to do my hair on my wedding day. Trust me, look no further, this is the person you want doing your hair on your wedding day. She is the best.
