found Claire after searching on the internet and at very short notice. She was very busy but put herself out and rearranged her schedule to fit me in. I was originally going to find a hairdresser near to where I was staying around the wedding venue but after reading Claire’s web site I thought I would give her a try as she specialised in vintage hair and make-up which is what I was looking for as it was for a “thirties” style wedding. I had a vague idea about hair styles and make-up of that era but Claire made sure that both myself and my two daughters (ages 12 and 10) were going to look the part.
I have short bobbed hair which she transformed into a real thirties style with soft waves throughout my hair and the girls both had side buns with loose curls which made them look very elegant. I loved my hair so much that I would like to change my style now to loose curls. My make up was absolutely spot on! She transformed my eyes to a real glamorous 1930′s look with amazing silver eye shadow and her steady hands gave my eyes emphasis with subtle false eyelashes and slick eyeliner as of that era. The whole look reminded me of a more subtle “Betty Boo” figure and I mean that as a compliment because that was just the sort of look I was after and I love Betty Boo.
When I arrived at the wedding my husband didn’t recognise me! But that was no means a bad thing as his comments were more than flattering. I hardly had to touch my make up for the entire day and evening which is all credit to Claire as my skin is prone to shine and it was still fine at the end of the night (even then I didn’t want to take it off).
Thank you Claire for make the three of us glamorous girls from the Thirties for a day! I have already recommended you to friends and if anyone is looking for hair and make-up in the future (especially vintage), I will put them in touch with you.
