I highly recommend Powder & Pin for hair and makeup. Claire was the makeup artist for my wedding and Sarah was our hair stylist. They are both so friendly and make you feel at ease. They were able to recreate exactly what I’d shown them in pictures and our hair and makeup stayed perfect all day and night - We received so many compliments! I organised it all through Sarah who was very quick and helpful at responding to emails. I cannot recommend them enough!

Sarah is a great make up artist who made me feel very comfortable on my wedding day. I can’t recommend Sarah enough - she went above and beyond to ensure my makeup was exactly as I wanted and that my hair looked great for the big day.

Sarah was absolutely amazing - she did my hair for my wedding and also 3 bridesmaids and mother of the bride. We were all amazed at how quickly she can do such beautiful styles - making the morning of the wedding relaxed and smooth running. She even coped with me changing my mind in the last minute. Thank you so much!

Sarah and her wonderful team did myself and my bridesmaids hair for my wedding. Sarah is so talented and created beautiful styles for us all. She fitted in so well and made me feel so at ease. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

“I had a fantastic trial with Sarah. She was so helpful and looked at all of my ideas for hair and makeup and helped to bring them all together into to one look, which I am really happy with! Most important of all, she made the whole experience, really good fun and relaxed. She will be doing the hair and makeup for myself and my six bridesmaids for my wedding day in a couple of weeks and I can not wait :)”

“I found Powder and Pin by searching Google and was really impressed with their work on the website. Sarah was quick to reply to my enquiry and was really friendly and helpful over email. This friendliness and warmth carried on over into my makeup trial and Sarah was really chatty and made me feel totally at ease. As someone who doesn’t know a lot about makeup, Sarah was able to make suggestions on what would work well for the natural look that I wanted. Sarah applied it beautifully and made me feel totally myself. On the day of my wedding Sarah and her colleague, Claire, came to our hotel and did hair and makeup for my two bridesmaids, my mother and myself. The whole morning was really relaxed and a total pleasure and everyone was so happy with their hair and makeup, which stayed perfect for the entire duration of the day. I really cant thank Sarah enough for her work and would recommend Powder & Pin to anyone who wants high quality makeup and hair with a warm, friendly and affordable service.”

Sarah is an absolute gem. She recently styled myself and my bridesmaids for my wedding day and I couldn’t have asked for a more professional, helpful and creative person to make us up on my day. She listens to direction brilliantly and nothing phases her, I had numerous questions and changes and this was not a problem at all. My bridesmaids looked stunning and the compliments I received on my hair and makeup kept flowing all day! I highly recommend Powder and Pin and would use them again and again if I could get married more than once! Thank you for the beautiful job you did Sarah.

I cannot recommend Powder and Pin for bridal and bridal party hair and make up highly enough! Sarah is the absolute dream - so understanding and herself and her colleague Claire were the best people to have around on my wedding morning. They made everyone feel at ease and are so talented! A definite must choose supplier for your wedding day!

“Sarah did an amazing job of styling my hair on my wedding day - I couldn’t have been happier with it! I had so many compliments on the day. I had a trial with Sarah before the big day which was a great opportunity to try a few styles and work out what I wanted so when it came to the wedding day I knew I was in very safe hands. Sarah has a lovely calm aura and was a pleasure to have around on my wedding day! I would highly recommend booking Powder and Pin!”
