“it looked so natural and soft but didn’t budge all day”
— Emma

“Thank you for the amazing job you did on my hair, it looked so natural and soft but didn’t budge all day as you promised! You were an absolute pleasure to work with and it was so nice that you stayed until the end when I was being driven off. Whenever I need my hair doing again I know who to call :-)”

“All our styles stayed beautifully curled and in place all day”
— Katie Hall

“I can’t thank you enough Sandie for creating our perfect hairstyles, both myself and my bridesmaids loved the styles, they were exactly how I dreamed them to look. From the trial nothing was too much trouble, despite my hair extensions not curling at first, but you were able to put my worries at ease. On the wedding day I was absolutely blown away with all of our hair, especially mine! All our styles stayed beautifully curled and in place all day which is a testament to your talent. Having you and Lucy (BooLou Make Up) with me on the morning really calmed my nerves. I was really relaxed thanks to your warming personalities, I felt like I was getting ready with friends not strangers. You were very attentive and even made sure my hair was perfect once I was in my wedding dress which I really appreciated.
Thank you also for helping to tidy up the food and drinks in the kitchen after my bridezilla moment, too much adrenaline is my excuse! I wish you continued success in the future and I would definitely recommend you to other brides looking for a professional hairstylist.”

“It felt like I had two extra friends there with me”
— Kristin

“I wanted to say a huge thank you to you for the beautiful hairstyles you created for my wedding day. You were so relaxed and flexible with creating the looks that myself and my bridesmaids wanted. The waves you did in my hair were just what I wanted :-)
It was so lovely having you and Samantha (Samantha Davis Make Up) with us before the ceremony – it felt like I had two extra friends there with me. You were also great at settling my nerves and offering much welcome advice. Thank you also for being there right to the end and helping us with all of the last minute panics – like having to quickly make the room look ‘tidy’ and lending us scissors for cutting off tags!”

“I really, REALLY couldn’t recommend Sandie
more highly!!”
— Amanda

“Sandie did my hair for my wedding at the Matara Centre in March 2013. Right from my first enquiry Sandie was professional yet very friendly and I felt like she really wanted the booking unlike so many hairdressers I had contacted in the area. Sandie was happy to do the trial at her home as I don’t live in the Cotswolds which I was really grateful for and she was really happy to try as many different styles as I wanted. She’s very versatile as she created a more relaxed hair style for me as I didn’t want anything too traditional or formal. I really liked that she emailed pics of the trial hair dos straight after the trial so I had a good idea of what they looked like in pictures. On the wedding morning she also stayed after doing my hair and waited for my make up to be done and for me to get into my dress to make sure my hair was perfect! I really appreciated that. She really does make sure you’re happy at all times. Sandie is totally professional and a lovely person who really cares about your wedding day. She’s always really quick to get back to you and is super organised. I really, REALLY couldn’t recommend Sandie more highly!! You’ll be in very safe, talented hands!!

Thanks again Sandie, all the best”

“I couldn’t have asked for a better person to have done my hair for my wedding, you really were fantastic.”
— Laura Jardine

“I wanted to say a ‘proper’ thank you as I never really got the chance on the day. From the first phone call with you, you were so lovely and bubbly – you put me at ease straight away.  Your flexibility with the location of the trial & on the day was something that I hadn’t found with anyone else and was so important to me.
At my hair trial, you listened to what I wanted, and allowed plenty of time for us to redo and tweak as we went along to make sure that I was happy with the final outcome, you soon put any niggling concerns to rest!
On the morning of my wedding, you were so chilled out, yet in control, bubbly and chatty, you really helped us all calm down!  Not having properly discussed hairstyles with one of my bridesmaids before the day – you took this in your stride and did their hair beautifully and I know that both of my bridesmaids loved what you did with their hair.  With a spare couple of minutes, you even managed to ‘throw in’ a few curls into my flower girls’ hair – which made her feel so special and grown up – she loved them so much that she kept those curls in for 3 days!!
As for my hair, the way that you worked your magic so efficiently and beautifully, it was perfect!! As we had discussed, my biggest worry was it dropping out over the process of the day – I didn’t need to worry, you made sure that my hairstyle wasn’t going to do anything it wasn’t meant to!  You even helped put right the little hiccup when we discovered we didn’t have my veil! It’s not just your ability to create beautiful hairstyles but your personality adds to much to the wonderful service you provide.  I couldn’t have asked for a better person to have done my hair for my wedding, you really were fantastic.The biggest Thank You for all you did for me, my bridesmaids and my flowergirl.”

“Both myself and my bridesmaid loved the styles we had and they stayed perfect all day.”
— Kerri

“I just wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you for the amazing job you did with our hair for my wedding. Both myself and my bridesmaid loved the styles we had and they stayed perfect all day.
From our very first meeting, right through to the wedding day you were always very easy to contact if I had any questions or queries. After our hair trial you were quick to email me the photos so we could spend time looking over them to help decide which style to go for, I never felt pressured and you were always keen for me to feel comfortable with the style I chose.
On the wedding day you turned up at the time we had discussed, and quickly got to work. I loved that you spoke to everyone as they flew in and out of the kitchen (it was all slightly chaotic!)
After our hair was finished Sandie didn’t rush off home, nope she stayed to make sure our hair was still perfect once we were in our dresses. In fact apart from myself and my dad Sandie was the last person to leave the house that morning!
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you to anyone, you were always happy, calm and friendly but also professional.
Thanks so much”

“She will showcase her artistic flair by suggesting plenty
of ideas”
— Susi Beech

“I can highly recommend Sandie to style any bride’s hair for her special day! She is incredibly friendly and bubbly – as soon as you meet her she will put you at ease, whether you have a clear idea of what you want, or are a bit unsure like I was – in which case she will showcase her artistic flair by suggesting plenty of ideas.
My hair held up beautifully all day. Sandie really went ‘the extra mile’ by staying around after my hair was done by helping me get into my dress, shoes, positioning my veil and also helping my mother-in-law with her hairpiece. Highly recommended!”

“The time you made for me and the patience you had with each of us on the day is a credit to your service”
— Anna McMahon

“Thank you so much for mine and my 3 bridesmaids hair styles you created for my wedding at the Greenway Hotel on 4th May 2013. We all looked absolutely stunning.
The time you made for me and the patience you had with each of us on the day is a credit to your service, and found you to be incredibly helpful in your thoughts and suggestions for suitable styles during my hair trials prior to the big day. Trying all the various styles I liked at my hair trials was great fun, and enjoyed getting to know you, as well seeing what amazing things you could do with my muppet hair!
We had a fabulous morning getting ready for the wedding, I have some great memories of the day from this special time, thank you for being part of my day :)

Thanks again, and all the best for the future, would happily recommend you to anyone looking for a bridal hair stylist in Gloucestershire.”

 “I really appreciated you being on hand right until I left the house so you could help with finishing touches and putting in my veil”
— Sally Black

“Thank you for creating the perfect hair style for my wedding day, you captured everything I wanted and made it look so pretty.  My Mum’s and bridesmaids hair were also very beautiful and they all loved them too.
You are such a lovely lady and made me feel at ease right from the hair trial.  I really appreciated you being on hand right until I left the house so you could help with finishing touches and putting in my veil.  I also liked that you showed my bridesmaid how to remove it whilst keeping the style in place.
I would definitely recommend you to other people looking for a bridal hairstylist and I wish you every success for the future.
Thank you again”

“Everyone was commenting on mine and my bridesmaid’s hair all day.”
— Melissa Grey

“Sandie I can’t thank you enough for my wedding hair. I sent you a picture and you gave me exactly what I wanted and more. Sorry for the nerves! Once I got to the church I was fine! Lol! Horrible nerves ! But thank you ever so much for everything. Everyone was commenting on mine and my bridesmaid’s hair all day.”

“Everything that Sandie does is with enthusiasm and her friendly, calm demeanour immediately puts everyone
at ease”
— Natalie Ovens

“Sandie is a truly talented bridal hair stylist. When I suggested that I would love her to travel to Scotland for our wedding, she jumped at the chance. Everything that Sandie does is with enthusiasm and her friendly, calm demeanour immediately puts everyone at ease – especially on the wedding day when things can get a little tense! I felt like a princess on my wedding day and Sandie styled my hair to perfection. We had two trials and she knew exactly what I wanted. I was not the easiest bride to please but with two words of ‘big’ and ‘high’, Sandie knew what she was doing! Not only did she style my hair, but almost all of the female wedding party. Everyone had nothing but compliments about her and how it ‘topped off the morning’ by having their hair done. Once my hair was styled, Sandie stayed to see me in my dress and made sure I did not want anything else tweaking before she left. Her ultimate attention to detail makes her a wonderful bridal hair stylist and that’s why I would not hesitate to recommend her. Thank you Sandie, by being there and making my hair look wonderful, you made me feel like a million dollars and that’s how every bride should feel.”

Natalie Ovens – 6th September 2013

“Every single one of the 5 hair dos stayed in place all day and all evening (despite A LOT of dancing)”
— Rachel

I just wanted to send a huge thank you for doing mine, and all the bridesmaids’ hair last weekend for our wedding. Every single one of the 5 hair dos stayed in place all day and all evening (despite A LOT of dancing) and we had loads of comments on how great our hair looked. You made the whole process, from the trial to the wedding morning, completely stress free and really enjoyable and it was a real pleasure to have you there on the wedding morning. We had a a perfect day so thank you for all your help, I could not be more pleased with everything you did to help.

Rachel – 1st March, 2014
