Make up & Hair by Nicky
Welcome to Make up by Nicky. I specialise in Make-up and Hair Styling for Weddings and Special Occasions.

I worked with my first Bride over 12 years ago shortly after my own wedding and remember just how important my Make-up Artist and Hair Stylist were to me on my Wedding day. I've now worked with hundreds of Brides, Bar Mitzvah mums, Party Goers and Prom Queens and understand their nerves which is why I make our journey together a calm and enjoyable one. I never book more than one Bride a day so I'll be for there as long as you need me and am a dab hand when it comes to lacing up a Wedding Dress! 

I start every Make up with a relaxing skin treatment to make you glow before your Make up application even begins. I only use luxury brands as I believe they give the best end result and never do a Make up without at least a few lashes to complete your look.

When  it comes to hair there's nothing we can't do and I tend to take my inspiration from the Red Carpet rather than Bridal Magazines, which can often be outdated. We'll discuss your dress shape, accessories and your favourite facial features to emphasise the things you most like about yourself and subtly disguise any areas of concern, leaving you the happiest and most confident you, you can be.

Although I do both Make-up and Hair for Special occasions I also take bookings for just Make-up or Hair. So whether it's just a bouncy Blow dry or a Party Make up you're after, I can do it all and also offer bespoke Hair Extensions and Semi - Permanent Eyelash Extensions to complete your look.
I have a home Studio in St Albans in Hertfordshire and cover all of London and the surrounding counties including Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Middlesex, Essex and Surrey.

Please call, email or use the form on the Contact page letting me know the date of your occasion, where you'll be getting ready and how many of you will require Make-up and or Hair. I do get very booked up, but always aim to respond to your enquiry within 24 hours. Very occasionally emails will go into Junk so please do text or call if you haven't had a reply within a few days.
