Hi there! I'm Holly. I live in Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire and I'm a cheese lover (edible and music) giggler, wedding enthusiast and all round confidence booster!
My journey into makeup artistry and hair styling was perhaps not a conventional one. A lot of artists will say "I've always loved makeup!" or "I've played with hair since I was little" this wasn't the case for me. I actually wanted to be a special effects makeup artist (more on that here.) I don't think I even wore makeup until I was 15 and didn't pick up a pair of straightners to tame my frizzy teenage mass until I was about 17. I don’t “do” hair and makeup because I’m obsessed with hair and makeup products (although I do love my tools!), I do it because of what I can create by using them. It taps into my love of creativity and colour, where my lovely brides are my canvas.
Since focusing full time on weddings, it's become apparent how much I love my job. Being able to use my creative skills, my compassion and my love for making other people feel amazing is the best feeling in the world. It's so much more than a job to me. I love to go the extra mile.
With me, it's your opportunity to completely focus on yourself. Your time to allow yourself to be obsessed with your reflection. How often do you get to do that? Guilt free! Your time with me will be full of fun and laughter, but ultimately a relaxing and pampering experience. Who doesn't enjoy that!
I have always enjoyed topping up my skills over the years as I feel it is essential to stay up to date with current trends and styles. It is so important to showcase yourself in the best way. By doing this I am always able to create fresh, timeless and classic looks with a modern twist. I use top quality products tried and tested by other artists so I get the best, honest reviews. Knowing that what I use really works and lasts.
To say I spend my days indulging in my creative passion, while making my brides feel so confident and comfortable with themselves and their wedding look is addictive and I wouldn't change it for the world.
