ABOUT

 

My vision of a perfect bridal look consists of four Cs. It must be:

Custom-made to suit your personal style, reflect your individuality and compliment the dress and total look.

Chic, making you look and feel glorious.

Comfortable and long lasting – it should stay in place all day to make you feel confident and relaxed.

Contemporary and timeless, reflecting modern bohemian vibes and forever classics to ensure that you will love it on the day and many years later looking through your wedding photo album.

I put all my skills, energy and enthusiasm to achieve these goals while carefully listening to your ideas. 

Over 250 brides made up in nearly 8 years…

Styling hair was my heart since I was a child, however it didn’t happen all at once to make it my profession. As many other creative people, I started with a ‘normal job’. Luckily, this experience currently helps me a lot to run my business (I come from finance background). Although, even working in an office, I never missed an opportunity to help my fellow-colleagues to get ready for a party.

 

In 2011, once I was brave enough to fulfill my dream and pursue a career as a wedding hair stylist, I realised that this was not enough for me. Most of brides asked if I offer wedding makeup as well, and this motivated me to train and become a wedding makeup artist. What I love about doing both bridal hair and makeup is the opportunity to create a complete finished look. However, I offer separate hair or makeup services too.

Besides technical part of styling hair and creating a makeup look, another thing I love about weddings is the atmosphere. Now, after a few years of work in the industry, I got used to overwhelming excitement of a bridal morning. Yet, I must confess, I still happen to have bad sleep before weddings and I often feel very excited, although it is hardy noticeable from aside. A  wedding morning is a very special part of the whole day and I feel grateful to my clients for trusting me to look after them on one of their greatest events.

What I offer
My Story

I hold an NVQ level 3 Certificate in hairdressing but particularly most of my styling skills were acquired independently. I constantly continue upgrading my technique and have recently learned from the worldwide industry leaders - @lenabogucharskaya and @tonyastylist during their London held courses.

I was professionally trained as a makeup artist in MAKE UP FOR EVER accredited school and graduated in 2011. Since then I keep my skills up to date by regularly attending master classes and individual training with industry leaders.

Education and experience

My preferred beauty brands are Charlotte Tilbury, Make Up For Ever, MAC, Bobby Brown, Too Faced, Estee Lauder.

I love hair products from Schwarzkopf, Kenra, Percy&Reed, Wella, L'Oreal.
