Katy - Hampshire
I have 18 years of experience working in film, television and fashion and weddings.
I love working in the wedding industry and being part of such a special time! I pride myself on creating a calming and relaxed atmosphere while you get ready.
I trained at The London College of Fashion in 2005 and then went on to Greasepaint School of TV & Film Makeup, after which I completed a year’s traineeship with the BBC.
My style for makeup and hair is natural and relaxed, nothing too caked on! I love creating glowing flawless skin and stunning eyes, and hair that looks effortless yet intricate.
I keep up to date with the all the latest hair styling techniques and hair and makeup trends and I use make-up and hair products by Charlotte Tilbury, MAC, Stila, Hourglass, Laura Mercier, Benefit, Dior, Urban Decay, Too Faced and Nars to name a few. All of my products are tried and tested for a natural, long lasting and flawless look!
I just wanted to send you a quick email to say a HUGE thank you to you for all the hair and makeup for our wedding last week (can’t believe it’s a week ago tomorrow!!)
You have such a calming presence and this helps so much on a wedding morning with nerves and excitement in the air! The morning ran completely to schedule and the makeup and hair was just divine. You managed to make me feel special and the hair and makeup looked great, you even managed to hide those blemishes I was so conscious of! You are a life saver! I am so sorry I didn’t get to say goodbye properly before you left, forgive me, I was in the car ready to go!!
Please pass our thanks to your assistants Hannah and Helen who were also wonderful, please thank them, the bridesmaids looked fantastic!
Thanks again so much Katy, I will always recommend you without hesitation!
Hi Katy, I just wanted to thank you very much for doing my hair and make up for my wedding. I was thrilled with both as it was a wonderfully professional job and the look complemented my dress perfectly. The wedding guests commented that I looked amazing. What more could I ask for. Many thanks again. Sue Fletcher
I got married on the 8th June 2013 and I was fortunate enough to have been passed Katy's details from a family member. Katy and her lovely assistant had a busy morning doing my hair and make-up along with 3 bridesmaid, 3 flower girls, a matron of honour and mother of the bride. They put 100% into each person's hair and everyone looked beautiful. My makeup and hair looked amazing, I felt a million dollars. Katy will always hold a special place in my heart, not only because she is generally one of the nicest people I have ever met, but when I had issues before I was due to go to the ceremony she stepped up and helped me through it. I would have not been able to even have got into my dress if it wasn’t for her. For that I thank you. All the best. Charlotte Osbournne
Just wanted to say thanks for everything on my wedding day a few weeks back on 11th November 2011. Not just the super amazing professional makeup and hair styling - but for keeping myself and mother calm and together! We really enjoyed the experience... I felt so confident going down the aisle because I knew my make up looked so good! Everyone commented on how lovely my hair was also. It made such a difference to me that I found someone I knew I could 100% trust with such an important thing for my big day. The groom was OVER the moon, so glad I kept the curls... I am SO happy and SO lucky I contacted you. (I worry I will never look as good again!) Good luck with everything in the future and I really hope that I might need make up done again in the future! Thanks again. Emma Wraight
