bit of a long shot really but does anyone have any idea or recommendations of mobile hairdressers or makeup people that would travel to Castle Hedingham to wedding hair etc?

I seem to keep searching and searching and can't find anyone local or anyone that does it for less than a small fortune!! its amazing that it seems to cost at least 75 quid just to get your barnet done on the big day and then there is bridesmaids and travel costs on top! Is just me or does this seem really pricey stuff!!

I dont' want fancy hair on my big day but don't want to do it myself either because i will end up with it in pony tail like i do most days!!

Also have no idea from looking if any of these people are going to be good or not...

any ideas or recommendations would be gratefully received!

how about finding a local hairdresser in one of the hedinghams - I drove through sible hedingham the other day and spotted a couple of hairdressers - they'll be more local so won't have such high mileage. Or have it done at a salon in colchester - I had mine done at the hairdressers at the bottom of mile end road and it lasted the whole day including driving to the venue/getting changed etc.

re: makeup - I did my own for my wedding day and thought I looked like me - my recommendation would be to book a consultation at a bobbi brown counter (think nearest is either london or john lewis in cambridge. their make up is very natural looking and long lasting.

congrats on the wedding btw

(are you still yoga-ing? have namechanged several times!)

My friend had a makeover at the Mac bit in Williams and Griffin, and the girl who did it came and did her makeup on the day. Worth going in and asking.

Thanks guys - some good ideas. got hair sorted now at much more reasonable price! just makeup to go. need help definitely too haggard and pasty from the long winter to risk it myself!

Paarrp - no unfortunately DP never makes it home in time to allow me to go yoga anymore!! boo!

Boo indeed! dh is also mostly at work so I haven't been for years but am determined to try and make atleast two sessions a month.

I'd definitely recommend going to have a look at Laura Mercier products - they sell them in W&G's now - they are similar to Bobbi Brown in that they have a 'natural look' approach.

if you're feeling a bit pasty then try using a facial scrub three times a week - this will soon get rid of the winter dullness.

When is the Big Day?

Congratulations lucyfer, when's the big day?

I'm getting married in 4 weeks {eeek} and my mobile hairdresser is doing my hair and make up for me.

My other option was to go to debenhams or w&g, get a make over and treat myself to a few new bits and do it myself on the day.

Hi Everyone,

I am desperately searching for a hair and make up artist for my wedding. Has anyone used S.A.S.S.Y Hair and Make Up before? Would you recommend them?

I have tried searching on previous posts for make up artists for Asians. Unfortunately both Lisa Carter and Kate Fletcher are not available on my day.

At the rate I am going, I will have to change my wedding date!! First my dream photographer was not available. Now this!
