Makeup Artistry & Hair Design

'You were an angel. Thank you for the support via email over the eyelash dilemma as well as spending extra time with me at our practice in order to get my hair right. I was thrilled with my hair and make up on the day, it was perfect.  
Lots of love to you too. I am so pleased I found you to do my make up, I felt as though I had a friend getting ready with me, which added to my day.'

Email from Pamela following her design appointment. Pamela was let down by someone unable to fulfill her wedding booking three weeks prior to her wedding, after having done a trial.

Oh thank you for emailing me! Yes the dress fitting went really well and it was nice to see everything come together. Everyone in the shop commented how good it looked with the style of the dress! 
I also bought the dermalogica product you recommended so will start using that until the day, so thank you for letting me know about it!

 On the drive back home I couldn’t keep my eyes off the mirror and felt a huge weight off my shoulders!. I felt so much more relaxed knowing that you will be there on the day doing my hair and make up and perhaps it was good thing that the person cancelled after all as I felt you were more professional in what you did, so thank you!
Are you ok with all the details you need for the day? If you need to know anything else in the meantime let me know. I have asked my 'bridal crew' to pin some pictures of hairstyles and make up ideas they have to show you.
Thanks again, 
Hope you have lovely day

"Kate is amazing!!"

We had Kate do my bridal hair and makeup and four bridesmaids hair, I literally cannot thank her enough. She is such a perfectionist which is exactly what you want for your hair and makeup on your wedding day. I'm so glad I found Kate and she was there on our big day. The bridesmaid were all so happy with their hair and I loved my hair and my makeup. She made sure I was ready in time which included helping with a big dress! I've never been so keen to write a review of someone as I have with Kate! She was literally with me every step of the way on the lead up too! Thanks Kate!

"Thank you so much Kate for making me look and feel beautiful on my wedding day. Your attention to detail for my make-up and hair was amazing and I loved how natural I looked. Your pre-wedding make-up advice was very welcome too!
I am so glad you could be there and be a part of our special day. I would highly recommend you to any bride and bridal party who wish a 1st class stress free experience on their wedding day. "

Review from
I just wanted to contact you to let you know about the service I received from Kate Pope who I contacted via your website. 
Kate was excellent right from our first contact. As I suffer from alopecia I was looking for someone who knew about this affliction and would be able to provide me with a hair style that reduces the amount of bald patches that can be seen in the photos, as no one wants that in wedding photos. Kate was very knowledgeable and put me straight at ease. She was always available on emails for me, and I had a multitude of questions. Kate recommended a few products for me to use on both my skin and hair and they have worked wonders and I have totally changed my hair routine from Kate’s advice and my hair has never looked so thick.
For the trial Kate put me at total ease and it was a joy to have her at my house and sharing the experience with my friends and family. I am not used to wearing make up and Kate was very understanding and I was not pushed out of my comfort zone at any point.
On my wedding day, Kate worked miracles on both my hair and make up and it was exactly what I wanted. Kate was also on hand for helping me with my dress and any other issues that arose. It felt like I had a friend I had known for years with me.
Kate started as my hair and makeup artist and has ended as a good friend who I hope to keep in touch with. She really did go above and beyond to help me.
I would highly recommend Kate to any bride, especially for any who are worried about anything to do with hair and make up, she puts you at ease and it just feels that you have a friend doing everything for you.
Kind regards
Charlotte Cole!

Heading: Amazing from start to finish! 
Description: Kate was truly fabulous! She came to my house to do a trial and discussed my ideas as well as giving me some much needed guidance. She was always prompt at responding to my questions and queries and was also able to recommend some amazing products for the day. On the big day, she really was a true artist with my hair and makeup as well as with my bridesmaids.

Most importantly, she was a lovely person to have there to help me on my wedding day! I couldn't have asked for anyone with a more reassuring and kind manner, and she helped out above and beyond what I would ever have expected with preparations. I had so many compliments on the day and it was largely down to her wonderful help and support that I could go into such a nerve wracking exciting situation feeling so confident.

She really was fantastic and cannot give her high enough praise!

My Mum suggested I have a first makeup with Kate for my sixteenth birthday. I think she was fed up with me constantly buying makeup and it not being right. I wasn't sure at first as I'd been experimenting and had watched lots of tutorials on YouTube, so I thought I knew what suited me. But I'm really glad I had this opportunity as Kate gave me some great tips on skin care as well as recommending what makeup would work with my teenage spot prone skin. She advised me on what products to spend my money on and where to save money on using some best high street brands.
 Kate is very friendly and it was easy to relax with her, it was a fun two hours. I was really pleased with finishing look 😊. Thanks Kate.


"Kate is a joy to work with from start to finish. Add to that she is a complete perfectionist only satisfied when your requirements are met and exceeded. She is gentle in her approach yet professional, and quite simply has a natural talent for makeup and hair which will make you want to work with her again and again. Love this woman!"
