Nyree I can’t thank you enough for making me feel sooooo glamorous for my Birthday Soirée. You are not only an amazing artist but a sincere warm hearted lady whom I’m blessed to have met! This is the second time you’ve flamed me up for an event! I look forward to many many more occassions too! Xxx

I’d like to pass on my thanks for the staff you provided to do my hair and make up on my wedding day on the 9th April. Both Nyree and Eve attended the hair and make up trial initially, with Nyree doing my hair and Eve doing my make up. The girls were perfect from the start. They were down to earth and lovely, they were chatty and fun…and they both did an amazing job. On the day of my wedding they also did the hair and make up for my 3 sisters and mother, which is usually not the easiest of tasks, however the girls took it all in their stride and the results were amazing. I have never been happier and can’t believe that for the first time ever my mother was happy with the results as well!! I don’t think she could believe how good a job the girls did!
The service you provide is really easy to use and the girls were in contact with me as soon as I’d made the initial booking, they were lovely and professional and I would highly recommend your service to others.
Thank you again,
Nyree was fantastic, took her time to listen to what we wanted and her work was quick and precise. Turned out exact like the photo I chose She’s very easy to get along with which made the morning of the wedding fun & stress free. We got many compliments on the day, I’d get married all over just to feel as glamorous as I did that day!
Thank you Jess H
Wesley and I would like to personally thank you all for playing a special part in our Wedding day how ever large or small it may have been, We honestly couldn’t of asked for a more perfect day and that’s thanks to all of your tireless efforts behind the scenes.

So once again We Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts, it was a pleasure working with every one of you.

“I chose Nyree to look after mum and I’s hair and makeup for my wedding day in March 2012. Nyree was professional, efficient, gentle and friendly, giving mum and I exactly what we had asked for. We both chose air brush foundation, which felt like we weren’t wearing any foundation, our makeup lasted throughout the day and night despite the happy tears shed. Nyree is highly recommended to provide professional hair and makeup to help make your special day a success.”
Hannah E Bride
Thank you so much for making my day just that bit more special. The hair and make up you provided was amazing and I still have guests commenting on how gorgeous the bridal party looked. You were really easy to deal with and I have not one complaint! Would recommend you to anyone! Thanks again!
I can highly recommend Nyree as a ray of sunshime brimming with professionalism for any commercial shoot. She has successfully charmed challenging clients, and Prima donna models alike, and her good nature is a pleaseure for everyone to be around. I’ve yett o hear a wimper of a complaint for any outlandish request and she is consistently approchable, professional, creative and talended.

“Just writing a letter of thanks to you for looking after me on my wedding day. Although our wedding was in July, I have just received our photos and thought they were stunning. Viewing your website and from the first consultation we had, in the privacy of my own home, I knew you would be able to create a look for me which matched my ideas perfectly. You created a classic and elegant look which highlighted my features against my dress and brought warmth to a winter’s day! The tattoo on my neck was seamlessly covered up and you allowed me to feel clean, fresh and classic on my wedding day. You worked with my time frame and my guests brilliantly and helped to create a calm atmosphere. Nothing was too much for you. For this, I thank you for the memories you helped to create for me on my wedding day. I would gladly recommend you to even the fussiest Bride! Perfection and professionalism”.
“I just wanted to send a quick e-mail to say thank you for everything you did for my wedding day on Saturday 6th August. You were lovely to have around all morning and our hair looked awesome and stayed in place for the whole day which I thought was pretty impressive. I’ve attached a photo for you to use if you would like”.
Thanks again for everything
“We cannot thank you enough, we had 4 bridesmaids, mother of the bride and me (bride) needing hair and makeup and you easily completed it all, with no rushing or stress and the results were unbelievable and exactly what we asked for! We have received so many fantastic comments on our hair and makeup and how we looked on the day! Again I cannot thank you enough and would proudly refer you to anyone needing this service for their wedding.”
