Thank you so much for our bridal party hair, you got exactly what we wanted and created it perfectly. You put us all at ease and thanks for all of the other wedding prep you helped us with on the day.

I only met up with Mel about a week or so before my wedding for my trial but she absolutely got what I wanted doing with my hair (although I don’t have lots of it) I had a birdcage veil – not too sure about the best way to wear it but she sorted it! On the actual day of my wedding she not only did my hair but two young teenage girls with long hair but also a friends hair – none of whom she met before the day. We had half-up do’s including a variety of curls and plaits, blow-drys and hot rollers all going on! Mel took it all in her stride and produced hair which everybody absolutely loved!!!! She is great fun to have with you as you get ready, makes you feel relaxed as she gets on with doing what she does best. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mel to any bride to be looking for a hairdresser who will give you what you want and help make the ‘getting ready’ part of your day great fun. Thank you Mel! Xx

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you! You were fabulous on my wedding day from start to finish! Our hair looked amazing and stayed in all day, even with our crazy dancing! Most importantly I wanted to say thank you for all of your help on the day, you helped with everything, not just our hair! and was also lovely company! Thanks again!

Melanie was recommended by a friend and did the hair of my 3 bridesmaids, my mum and my own hair for my wedding. They were exactly the styles we wanted (including taming my mum’s wild and curly hair!) and stayed put perfectly all day, surviving some enthusiastic dance moves too! Thanks Mel!

Katy Yates – Facebook Page Review

I couldn’t recommend Mel highly enough I booked her to do our hairs for my wedding a couple of weeks ago she did an amazing job she had her work cut out with myself, 2 moms and 5 bridesmaids and everyone looked great, she even spotted I’d knocked mine getting I to my dress as I’d forgot to tell her id av walked up the aisle like it lol.. Thank you Mel xx

Mairi Chapman – Facebook Page Review

Melanie thank you so much for all of your hard work on Saturday. The girls hair styles were brilliant and mine was utterly perfect. You did so well to keep it all together and stay calm…I know it got a lot little chaotic towards the end but you really did hold it together. Thank you so much for being so understanding, friendly and easy to work with! I hope I was the same. Thank you again. Mairi xx

Hi Mel, Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for doing my hair on my wedding day, I was just looking at my wedding photo’s the other day and thinking about what an amazing job you did, I received so many nice compliments about my hair and it has never looked so good. I’m hoping to have another special occasion soon so you can do my hair again. I would recommend you to anyone who was looking for an extremely talented hairdresser. Simone xx

Rebecca Trembirth

Dear Melanie, on behalf of Daniel and myself we would like to thank you for all your time and hard work. My hair was perfect and just what I’d hoped for. My very picky mum even agreed and Daniel said I looked stunning and that is thanks to both you and Rochelle. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make our day so perfect. With love Daniel & Rebecca Mr & Mrs Trembirth

Zoe Brocklebank

Melanie was great. Friendly, calm and professional. The trial went perfectly, she put me at ease and made certain that I got exactly the look I wanted, she will really go out of her way to ensure you are comfortable and 100% happy with the style for your day. She also did my bridesmaids hair which looked stunning. She was a joy to have around on the wedding morning and happy to help out – even with things non hair related! Would highly recommend her.

Julie & Scott

Every girl has a picture of how she would like to look on her big day. I was no different, I had big ideas of high hair fringes and glamour, all thing which I never thought would be achievable. Mel was so reassuring and advised on my chosen style suggesting ways to improve the look setting it resetting it until it was just right. I was so impressed at the trial that I genuinely didn’t worry about how my hair would look on the day. The comments I had were genuine and I really did feel as glamorous as I had imagined I should every time I thought about the wedding.

My brides maid Evan didn’t have a trial, in fact the first time she met Mel was on the day of the wedding. Evan to explained how she wanted her hair to look and Mel worked wonders , trust me pleasing a sixteen year old is not easy.

My day was perfect and hassle free!!

Thanks Mel you are a gem !!

Lisa Bryan

Just a quick message to say thanks for everything on the 25th and I really really appreciated you staying while I got onto my dress, and I also appreciated all your help with all bits hair and non hair related, I cant imagine you anticipated spending your Saturday afternoon with your head up my skirt but never grumbled and were a really calming influence! Got you a proper card to go in your book, if you give me your address I will send it through. My niece was most upset when she realised she had to take her hair out to go to bed as at wanted to keep it in to show everyone at school! I have put a few pics on here (Facebook) if you want any for your book or website shout an I’ll send them over. Thanks again you were an absolute superstar xx

Jessica Halliwell

Dear Melanie, Sorry this isn’t a professional shot (still awaiting  those!!) of in fact a very useful one of the hair (although its showing fantastic resilience to the wind!!). But I just wanted to say the hugest thank you for everything you did on the morning of the 23rd June. Obviously the hair, which was all gorgeous & most importantly remained so all day, but also being such a calming presence to one & all when it just became too much & for even help tie bouquets! Looking forward to see you next year for Verity’s wedding. All the best, Jess
