Bridal Hair & Make-Up
South West France

A Professional Hair & Make-up Team for Brides hosting their weddings in France


Feeling a little nervous, as I don't usually wear any make-up, I booked my trial with Karen and Nikki, I came away from my trial feeling happy and confident for my wedding day. On my wedding day, Karen and Nikki arrived on time, they made me feel at ease and I loved every minute of my day, my hair, make-up and manicure was perfect - Thank you so much!

Karen was wonderful to work with on my wedding day. She was not only great company, but also worked with my bridesmaids and myself to make sure our make-up looked natural, but also made sure that it lasted throughout the day.
Due to my busy schedule, I didn't have time for a bridal trial day with Karen, we had a great Skype call, Karen was very open and receptive to whatever thoughts or concerns I had, I was really happy to work with Karen on my wedding day and I would highly recommend her services.

Karen and Nikki are a superb team and I can't recommend them more highly. They both made me feel relaxed and calm and were there with great banter throughout the trail and wedding morning! They listened to my ideas and made some great suggestions. I was delighted with the results. My hair and makeup lasted all day, even in the French summer heat and throughout an evening of dancing. My bridesmaids looked stunning and all were really pleased with the results.
I can't thank you both enough.

Nadine - Bride & Bridesmaids

In the run up to my daughter's wedding and on the day Nikki was brilliant. Nikki arrived at 7am and quickly set up her work station, then proceeded to do eight Bridesmaids, two Mothers and of course the Bride all by mid-day. This was done with skill, expertise and good humour. The results were stunning and I would not hesitate to recommend Nikki.
Karen did a superb job, she looked after a long list of Bridesmaids including the Bride and other wedding guests. We were given gel mani's and pedi's, which all looked great, and also lasted for a long time afterwards. I can highly recommend Karen.

Nikki and I have collaborated many times for weddings over the last ten years and I adore her work. Her professionalism is second to none, and her hairdressing skills are exquisite. Nikki can create the most beautiful and sophisticated Bridal hair styles which enhance the Brides features naturally. I would not hesitate in recommending Nikki to a Bride and her Bridal party on her wedding day, as I know they will look stunning.

I love working with Karen. She is always so cheerful and positive and she has a wonderful ability to relax both her clients and her suppliers. She is organised and welcoming and quite simply delightful.

As a wedding planner who has worked with Karen and Nikki on a couple of occasions this year, I can thoroughly recommend them to both future brides and other wedding planners.

They offer a fairly priced service which they execute with great professionalism and skill. I've seen how my clients relax in their hands and what a fabulous job they've done in making my brides look and feel fab on their big days. I very much look forward to working with you both again next year!

Karen and Nikki have worked with clients at Château de St Paul on numerous occasions. Our clients have always been very happy with their hair and make-up and the pamper days.

We are pleased to recommend both their services.

I have known Karen for a number of years as a Make-Up Artist and as a Wedding Planning.
I recently had the pleasure working with both Karen & Nikki for Bridal Hair, Make up and a Ladies pamper day. Teamwork is high on their agenda, our Brides and Wedding Guests staying at the Chateau have all been extremely happy, plus, hearing the brides & bridesmaids all receiving lots of compliments on the wedding day. I would happily recommend Karen & Nikki to Brides getting married in France - they're fab!

Victoria RoseManager of Chateau de Lasfargues

It's always a pleasure for me to work alongside Karen. Not only do I know my brides are going to look stunning for the photography but Karen also brings along with her a professional and calming approach to the bridal preparations. The ambience in the room is always light and full of smiles which is how all wedding days should start.

Nikki, Karen and I worked together on a styled 'Green Wedding Shoes, which is also published on Instagram. They were both professional, friendly and fun to work with, Karen is a fantastic makeup artist and paid great attention to detail, assisting me at all times, whilst Nikki created the different styles for my hair by adding ribbons, feathers & braids to suit the mood of the shoot.
Being December, the weather wasn't great, but we all continued to stay on set, I would absolutely hire both of these ladies again and would love them for my wedding day!
