Lara is an incredibly talented bridal hair stylist and did an amazing job on my hair, my bridesmaid’s hair, and my mum’s hair. We all have different types of hair (straight, wavy, curly, long & short) and we all wanted different styles. Lara was confident working with each of our hair types and we all loved how our hair turned out! I received so many compliments for my hair and it stayed in place the entire day. Not only is Lara really talented and what she does, she is also the perfect person to have around on the morning of your wedding - she is kind, encouraging, and such a lovely calming influence! I highly recommend booking Lara for your big day! Thank you for everything Lara, it was such a blessing having you around for my big day!

Best stylist I needed someone to style my hair for my stepdaughter’s wedding on Easter Sunday. I was so glad I found Lara - from the initial contact to the trial at her home - she was so welcoming and really listened to what I wanted. On the day she was fab, so lovely and professional and made me feel amazing with the way she styled my hair. Would definitely recommend Lara, you won’t be disappointed.

Simply the best! Lara was an amazing hair stylist - from my initial enquiry, to the trial & all the way to the moment I walked down the Aisle. She made me feel totally at ease & was able to tame my curly locks into something truly beautiful. For that, I will be forever grateful. Also, she's the best person to have around on your wedding morning, cool, totally calm & fitted right in with Bridal Party! Thanks so much Lara! I will be recommending you to everyone & anyone!

Highly recommend- book Lara now! So grateful that I found Lara and booked her to do my wedding hair. I didn’t know what I wanted and she suggested so many lovely ideas… the end result felt glamorous and yet natural… exactly right and so many compliments on the day! She’s not just a talented hairstylist but a really lovely person to have around too. We had a good giggle and she made me feel really relaxed when I’d been seriously stressing! Don’t hesitate to book her as you’ll be so glad you did.
