    I was thrilled with Kate's service. She was professional, easy to work with and the fact that she came to us when we were getting ready was such a special part of the day. We were all thrilled with our hair and make up!!!

    Kate did my hair and makeup for my wedding, my bridesmaids' hair and my mother's hair. Despite me talking to her about getting someone in to help her for the day, she insisted on doing it all herself. That said, I felt my makeup was a little rushed and that I didn't really have time to look it over. It was done well but I would have changed a few things. As for my hair, I showed her several pictures but the hair was still a little understated for what I asked for. Once again, it was done well and stayed up all day and night but not quite what I had envisioned. She also got a little short with the photographer and I felt that she was getting impatient with the rest of us. I know time was running out but I had discussed with her a second person to help out so we shouldn't have been rushed at the end.
    Overall, the end results of everything she did was great, but I would definitely ask her exactly how long it takes for each person to get done and include some wiggle room which is necessary on a wedding day as anything can happen!

    Kate did an absolutely stunning job on my hair and makeup, and for my two bridesmaids as well. In addition to having amazing skill, Kate is friendly, down to earth and she did a great job of listening to my ideas and then bringing her own creativity to produce a look that was better than I could have imagined! Would HIGHLY recommend Kate!

    Both my hair and make-up was amazing for my wedding day. Nothing was rushed, everything was done to perfection. It was wonderful having a stylist come to our hotel room, rather then traveling to a salon.

    Kate was wonderful to have around on the wedding morning! She was so relaxed and we had a really fun time together!
    She is very creative and very good at what she does.
    I had my hair and make-up done and I was so pleased with how it turned out!
    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Travelling Stylist!!!

    Kate was so lovely to work with. She was really flexible and accommodating with all of the hair and makeup we asked her to do in one day.

    Everyone looked stunning, and naturally enhanced. All of us typically wear very little make up so we wanted to keep things clean and fresh, and look overdone.

    I would definitely recommend Kate to anyone who needs a "travelling stylist" for their wedding day or other special occasions.

    Thanks again Kate!

    I used Kate to do my hair and make up for my wedding in August 2011. From the consultation/s through to the wedding day I found Kate to be very timely with her responses to my questions, professional checking a few days before the wedding and a calming influence on the day. From my research I also found her to be good value. I was very happy with my hair and make up, would definitely use Kate again and recommend her to my friends.

    Kate from The Travelling Stylist did a fantastic job on my hair and makeup for my engagement photos and my wedding! She also did all of the hair and makeup for my bridal party and they were very impressed with her creativity, attentiveness, and services as well. Having Kate come to the hotel to do our hair and makeup made the wedding day much more relaxed and offered us more time to get ready. We all look forward to more visits with the Travelling Stylist!! Kate, you are the best at what you do!!!

    Kate was fantastic for me. Deciding my hair style turned out to be the most difficult thing to decide of the entire wedding! She was patient and kind and was offering trial options which I strongly recommend as it was incredibly helpful.
    The day of the wedding she came with another colleague and they both did a remarkable job with my entire bridal party. Make-up was done with taste and elegance while the hair styles suggested were sophisticated yet not overdone. They were both very opened to any suggestions or comments and they did their best to make everyone happy. We had tons of positive comments about our hair and make-up on the day.
    Kate is a wonderful person to have around you on your wedding day; she is calm and you know you can just sit back, finally relax and trust her!!
    Thanks Kate :)
