I cannot say how highly I recommend helen. I had both hair and makeup done for my son’s wedding in July. Helen arrived at the hotel nice early so no rushing, she had her box of tricks, all her lotions and potions she made me look and feel wonderful, Helen is so professional checking colours making sure everything was perfect for me, we had a great time, by the time she’d finished 2 granddaughters had their hair beautifully styled, 1 daughter hair styled and makeup, and of course myself feeling just great. I cannot imagine what I would have done without her. I give helen 5*+

It’s not everyday you get to be in the same room as someone as talented as Helen. Not only is she a true professional, she’s approachable, straight talking and fun. I’ve watched many a Youtube tutorial, tried to follow diagrams in magazines, and been sucked in by the latest beauty products, but never really got how to do it on myself. If you want to learn how to really do your make up, learn what you actually need in your make up bag, and what to spend your money on… then I can’t recommend All the Gear and No Idea masterclass with Helen enough. We all had a great time and learnt so many tricks of the trade. I don’t remember ever paying as much attention or taking as many notes at school! I tried out what I had learnt for a wedding the following week, and the compliments said it all. Thank you!!

     ‘Just wanted to take the chance again to say thank you so much for doing the most amazing job but more importantly than that making everybody feel perfectly at ease and setting a perfect tone for the rest of our special day….that really shouldn’t be underestimated.’
Kind regards, Jon

  I booked Helen for wedding hair and make up for myself, my sister and my best friend. Because it was quite short notice we had no time for a hair and make up trial, but Helen asked for a Pinterest board featuring elements of the wedding and any make up looks that I was inspired by so that she could get a feel for the wedding and for what I wanted. On the morning of the wedding – when everything was starting to get a bit overwhelming – up popped Helen. She had set aside plenty of time for each of us, talked through what kind of look we each wanted and how much make up we were comfortable with. She made sure we were all finished an hour before we left for the ceremony so we could get dressed and still have time for touch ups if needed. Basically, she was exactly the kind of person you want around on the morning of your wedding – professional, friendly and put us all at ease. She set the tone for a perfect day – not just because everyone’s hair and make up was perfect (though it was!), but because of the atmosphere she brought along with her massive suitcase of makeup! Thank you Helen – the hair and make up was perfect, we were all so thrilled with what you created. I’ve never felt so glamorous!
