Making people look and feel great is the most rewarding part of working in the hair and beauty industry. Expressing my creativity through hair and makeup is a real passion of mine, with bridal styling being my preferred and most loved area. Whether it be creating a look that is unique to the bride and her bridesmaids, or giving the Mother of the bride a make-over, it’s an amazing experience being part of someone’s big day.
I was first introduced to the professional world of hair and beauty whilst working on a Cbeebies programme, for which I did the presenters hair and makeup. This then lead me to pursue this career choice, focussing mainly on weddings and occasions. Since then I have been fortunate enough to work on lots of beautiful weddings, styled shoots, editorials, and have had work featured in Brides magazine, and Rock My Wedding.
My favourite bridal looks are natural and romantic. Dewy flawless skin, with soft smokey eyes, complimented by loose beach waves, or a tousled, undone updo = beautiful! I’ve aways used makeup to enhance natural beauty, rather than mask it. I want you to feel like the best version of you!
You will find a real mix of products in my kit, however my absolute essentials come from the likes of; Charlotte Tilbury, Bobbi Brown and MAC cosmetics. I love styling hair with the help from TIGI Bed Head products, OSIS by Schwarzkopf and the famous EIMI by Wella.
"I couldn't have been happier with the hair and makeup on my big day, it was everything I always dreamed off. Thank you so much to Melissa and hair stylist Rosie, for being so patient and professional and making me so happy and comfortable on my wedding day."
Beth Kennedy December 2016
‘I can't recommend Rosie highly enough! From the first email to the last application of mascara she was an absolute superstar. She listened to what I was after and brought it to life in a way which was beyond my expectations. It was really important to me that all my bridesmaids looked and felt like themselves and Rosie outdid herself, creating three individual looks with ease! My bridesmaids and I all felt so glamorous and polished and the photographs prove what a pro she is. Not only is Rosie ridiculously talented, she is such a lovely, calming person...exactly who you want around the morning of your wedding! She is awesome and I'm so grateful I found her!’
‘What can I say, Rosie you were amazing from start to finish! You made us all feel so relaxed on the day and knew what look we all wanted with our make up and hair even though we had no clue to begin with. Everyone was commenting on how beautiful my hair was all day and same with the bridesmaids (Louise -your assistant was so lovely! The girls (Bridesmaids) looked incredible!). I loved the make up as for a girl who doesn't wear that much make up, it was great to still feel natural but enhance my look for the special day! Thank you so much Rosie! Wish we could do it all over again!’
‘Rosie is a fabulous hair and makeup stylist and went above and beyond for my wedding day! From the start of the trial to the moment I left to get married, she was a wonderful, friendly, calming presence, listening to what we wanted and offering her expertise and guidance. The makeup and natural styling was ideal and perfectly suited to my skin and features, and she has a wonderful way with hair, working with the natural flow to bring out the best. We were all thrilled with our look and would highly recommend Rosie!’
Rosie did my hair for my wedding and I felt like a millions dollars! She listened to exactly what I wanted and over exceeded my expectations. I would 100% recommend her to anyone. I would have her come do my hair everyday if I could.
'I couldn't recommend Rosie more highly. She made my wedding hair exactly how I envisaged and was really flexible with any changes. She can do such a variety of hair styles and made all the wedding party look amazing. I loved my make-up as well, as Rosie made sure I looked really natural. Not only that but she is a lovely person to have around - just what you need on a wedding day morning!' Laura
'I would highly recommend Rosie, very friendly and made me feel beautiful on my wedding day. Rosie did my hair and make up for my wedding day. My hair was exactly how I imagined it too look, if not better and I was over the moon with my make up, felt amazing and lots of compliments from family and friends. Thank you so much, Abi’
'We were all delighted with the make-up and hair which you and your assistant Gabbi did, and the results lasted the whole day! Thank you also for keeping an eye on the time, it definitely helped with the rest of the timings on the day :)'
'Rosie made sure that my bridesmaids and I felt our absolute best on my wedding day. She was such a delight to work with and really understood the look I wanted to achieve. I couldn't have been happier with the result and would recommend her to anyone.'
Charlie Raves, Bride.
“I don't tend to wear a lot of make-up so was nervous not to look "dollied up" and out of character. Her make-up was so subtle and yet I felt beautiful - which as the mother of the groom, is exactly how you want to feel”
— Scarlett, Mother of the Groom
