Sydney, May 2022

I just want to say a massive thank you to Jen and Julie for being a part of my wedding day. They did an amazing job on my entire bridal party. I felt confident and beautiful all day and they played a huge part in that. They listened to what everyone wanted and delivered such beautiful results. My mother, bridesmaid and guest could not have been happier with their hair and makeup as well.

Thank you for all your help during this process I could be happier.

Working with the team for my wedding was fantastic!

Service:
- 4 bridesmaids, myself and mother of the bride
- excellent communication with monthly check-ins in the lead up to the wedding with tips via email.
- 6 weeks prior, did a hair and make up trial to perfect the look and it was just fun! I worked with Gem and Maria and we workshopped ideas together. I felt I could openly give feedback but I also knew to trust them with suggestions and tips because they were experts in their fields

Look:
- make-up was dewy and my skin felt flawless. Gem mixes her own foundation to colour match your skin. As an Asian person, I was after an artist that could brighten my eyes and understand my face, Gem was perfect.
- hair was well-placed and most importantly, stayed in place the whole time. My dead straight hair gives way to losing shape and coming out.

On the day:
- ladies brought the vibes. We played music and had fun getting ready
- they started early to get through 6 people and they move like clockwork so we had plenty of time for photos.

Overall;
- extremely happy with the quality of service and the outcome of the hair and make up
- 10/10 would recommend working with Gemma Nichols and the team!

Thank you to Gemma and her talented team for the beautiful hair and makeup for my wedding!

I had Gemma and her team do my bridal hair and makeup, and hair and makeup for my bridesmaids and mum. They did fabulous hair and makeup that suited all the girls individually, and took such care with my mum (who was a bit nervous about having her hair and makeup done). I couldn't have asked for a more lovely team to help me on the big day!

I also really appreciated Gemma's care and attention helping me to decide on a makeup look (as I'm a bit of a makeup novice), and helpful tips/advice for skin and hair prep in the lead up the wedding. For anyone with a birthmark (I have a port wine stain birthmark on my right cheek) - I was also really happy with how Gemma covered my birthmark, without the makeup looking too thick or caked on.

I was recommended to Gemma and her team by a friend who used them for her wedding, and would recommend to anyone for their big day.

How much time should I allow for my makeup and hair on my wedding day?

What brands do you use?

Our team have fully equipped kits filled with luxurious products as only the best will do for our brides.

Gemma personally favour brands that are vegan and do not test on animals such as Charlotte Tilbury, Hourglass, Fenty, Huda Beauty, Stila, Viseart, Chantecaille, Tarte, Toofaced, Mecca Max and Face Atelier.

Our team also use some products from brands such as Nars, Armani, Bobbi Brown, Tom ford, Mac, By Terry, Makeup Forever and Chanel however they are replacing those with cruelty free alternatives as they run out so that our whole team uses cruelty free products.

Our hairstylists use Nak, O & M, Cloudnine, Babybliss and GHD tools along with Bumble and Bumble, Label M and White Sands products.

For groups of four or more we send both a hair stylist and a makeup artist to ensure your day is smooth and stress-free.

For groups of 8 or more we can send additional artist if available to cut down on prep time.

Our team is a well-oiled machine and works together seamlessly. We allow 45 minutes per person and we calculate an extra 45 minutes as a buffer to be safe.

Hair out takes longer than undo's, please let us know if you require Hollywood waves and have extensions as we do allow an extra 30 minutes per person for this style.

Will my hair and makeup last all day?

Do you sell products for us to use later in the day?

Makeup: Ensuring long-lasting makeup is a priority of our bridal makeup artists. By layering the best primers, products and setting sprays your makeup will last all day and night. We use waterproof mascara and eyeliner so your makeup is tear proof. A quick one minute touch up with your lipstick and pressed powder will be all you need to do to maintain your flawless look into the night.

Hair: If we are creating an updo for you then absolutely your hair will stay. If left out the tendrils around your face will soften naturally as the evening goes.

Hair out will drop throughout the day due to gravity and also weather if it's humid, raining or windy. We do everything we can such as prepping with memory sprays and pin setting but if you'd like your hair out and will be outside for part of the day then we recommend our reception call back service for a style refresh. Ask us for more information about our call back service when you enquire.

For your convenience we stock Melli lipsticks, glosses and translucent pressed powder. Melli is a luxurious Australian owned and cruelty free brand. There is no obligation to buy any products at all, however, we offer them if you would like to purchase a present for your bridesmaids or keep your wedding lipstick shade to use again as a keep sake.

Our brides receive discount codes for our recommended brand of hair accessories and hair extensions.
