ASH - London
With over a decades worth of practice in the wedding, commercial, editorial and TV industry, I am an accomplished artist who has had the greatest fortune of travelling the world as part of my profession.
My passion for makeup was ignited after I enrolled into the Lubna Rafiq Academy in late 2009. Starting my career primarily in the Asian bridal scene, I quickly discovered I wanted to improve my knowledge and expertise and began working for leading brands including Charlotte Tilbury and Stila Cosmetics.
I spent three years employed as head makeup artist for the presenters and celebrity guests starring on shows, live-streamed from London based Zee TV studios. High-profile clients I have worked with include Anila Dhami, Mandip Gill and Pritch London.
In 2020 I relocated to Singapore to start a family and after taking a short break from the world of beauty, I found myself eager to return to what I loved the most, making brides feel extra special on one of the most magical days of their lives.
Now with a wealth of experience behind me, I have chosen to specialise in exclusively tailor-made wedding hairstyling and makeup services and guarantee them to be completely bespoke and stress-free.
‘Ash made my wedding morning so special and I felt immediately at ease in her trusty hands. I had a very intricate up do that I thought would never be able to reflect the pictures I'd saved as my dream wedding day hair. But Ash saw the vision and created such a beautiful look. Ash is kind and warm and friendly and extremely professional and talented, my hair looked exactly like what I wanted and Ash made me feel like a princess on my wedding day. As well as all of that Ash did the most beautiful make up for my mum and my auntie and they looked absolutely stunning, it really made the wedding so special. I could not recommend Ash more highly, it's almost like having your best friend with you on your wedding morning who happens to be an incredibly skilled hair and make up artist! Thank you Ash!!’
‘I was absolutely thrilled with my wedding hair and makeup by the extremely talented Ash. The trial run was great, she really listened to my needs and executed them perfectly on the day. It was a hot September wedding day and both hair and makeup lasted all day!
My mum had her makeup done as well and was thrilled with the result. I would recommend Ash to anyone because she really did a fantastic job and was so lovely, talented and friendly.’
