Customer Reviews

To Julie Thank you so much for coming to my rescue last minute and doing my hair and makeup beautifully for me on my wedding day! And thank you for your kindness and helping me get through my worries. Lots of Love Abbie Silman

Hi Jules, Thank you so much for doing the hair and makeup for my wedding. It all looked amazing and you made us laugh from start to finish.Thank you for helping to make my special day perfect. Kind regards, Helen

Jules did a fantastic job of doing the hair for me and my bridal party! During the trial I showed Jules what I was looking for and she got it right straight away and I’m so pleased with how it turned out on the day. Jules is really friendly and helps to put you at ease.

Jules did an amazing job! I didn’t have time to have a trial which wasn’t ideal but I sent photos and explained the look I was going for. Jules completely understood and I was thrilled with the results. I felt amazing! Not only is she fantastic at hair and makeup-up, she put me at ease and we had a good giggle (just as I was starting to feel very nervous)! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jules!

"I booked a basic makeup session for my 13 year old daughter as a Christmas present. Julie was absolutely fantastic. She was able to give my daughter the techniques for a basic daytime makeup look and them how to transition that into an evening or more glamorous look. In addition Julie talked about the importance of good skin care as well as quality makeup products. Julie was friendly, professional, educational and a pleasure to work with! I would 100% recommend her!"

Dear Jules I just wanted to say thank you so much for doing my bridal makeup on 30 December. It was exactly what I, and my mum, wanted! We still can’t believe it went ahead! Best Wishes Dave & Kerry xxx

Hi Jules, how are you? I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the makeup and hair on my wedding day. I loved having you do it and loved how you made me look! I just wanted to share some of the professional photos we got a few days ago so you can use them if you want to 😊

JULES!! I can’t even explain how happy everyone was with their hair and make up. You and Charlie did an incredible job ❤️ just stunning. Thanks for being so friendly and making our wedding morning all the more enjoyable with your presence. You are AMAZING. Sarah Wedding at Lains Barn

To Jules A huge thank you for making me and all of my bridesmaids, mum & mother in law, feel a million dollars on my wedding day. After a long wait, the day was more than I could have dreamed of and our hair and makeup was just perfect! Love & Best wishes Gillian xxx At Caswell House

Jules is an absolutely fantastic hair and make up specialist! She did my hair and make up as well as my bridesmaids and flower girl, the hair was perfect and even stayed in the next day too. The make up was amazing and my eye lashes stayed on for several days! Even more importantly she was SO much FUN!! Loved every minute of getting ready and she even stayed to help me into my dress. Totally recommend!! Thank you Jules xx

Hi Jules I just wanted to send you a message to say thank you for all your help on Monday. Everyone's hair and makeup looked amazing and I was so happy with the final look. You were a star! Thank you Lucy

“To Jules, just a note to thank you so much for the amazing few hours spent with Sophie and her bridesmaids on Saturday morning. They all looked amazing! So professional from a proud Mother and Father of the bride” C Pealing

Jules, an enormous thank you again for mine, my bridesmaids and mum’s hair and make up for my wedding day. I was so happy with my hair and make up and it stayed in all day and longer! I kept my make up on overnight and it stayed on all of Sunday and I still have the lashes on 2 days later! Was such a nice relaxed morning as well with lots of laughs 😊 I would highly recommend Jules, she is amazing at what she does!

Julie has been fabulous from the off. The trial went exactly the way I wanted showing photos from Pinterest and it looking the exact same. Set for the wedding in April 2020, however this moved a further 3 times making it fourth time lucky for June 2021, Julie couldn’t have been more accommodating. On the day she arrived and managed to keep me calm and stress free whilst she did my hair and everything was hectic around me, exactly what you need when you have a million things happening. Thank you so much Julie.

Jules has been amazing through our whole wedding journey. After having to postpone a year, we had a second makeup trial nearer the new date. She was more than happy to tweak a few things. Jules was also very patient with my skin worried and offered great skincare advice for before the wedding to ensure my makeup stayed as long as possible.

From our first telephone conversation I felt totally confident that I’d made the right choice. Jules was understanding of my needs which was a simple affair following the loss of my mom. Both hair and make up on the day turned out perfectly. No fuss at all and she put me totally at ease and even agreed to being one of our witnesses. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. A huge thank you once again 😊

Jules, I just wanted to say a big thank you for the beautiful hair and makeup you did for myself and my bridal party for my wedding day. You made us feel extra special and gave me the confidence boost to calmly walk down the aisle! I hope you are well and enjoying being back doing weddings Love Lorna & Ed xxxx

a minute agoNEW I would highly recommend Julie for anyone wanting absolutely beautiful wedding hair and makeup. She saved the day by agreeing to do my hair and makeup very last minute for my mini covid friendly wedding. She turned up perfectly on time to set up, was very friendly, professional and made the morning even more fun and special. I hadn't planned what to do with my hair or makeup so she was incredibly helpful in advising me what would look best with my dress and accessories and I felt in very good hands. The final look was perfect - everyone repeatedly said how amazing my hair and makeup was! I had such a wonderful experience I will be booking Julie for hair and makeup at a bigger wedding party next year when we can invite more people. I would give 6 stars if I could!

I would like to say a big Thankyou to Juile for doing my hair and make up on my wedding day. You gave me exactlley the look i was after. I felt amazing and hubby said i looked amazing. We had lots of laughs which kept me calm. Despite it being a covid wedding i had the wedding i wanted, and you were the perfect person to do my hair and makeup. I would definatley recommend Juile to anyone who is planning their wedding . Once again Thankyou Debbie x

Jules has what every bride needs. She made us laugh and giggle and kept us calm. The hair was a dream come true and make up lasted all day. I cannot recommend her highly enough to any future bride.

Jules was amazing on the day, I could not have been happier with my hair and makeup, she knew exactly the look I wanted and did it perfectly. She was also very patient with my indecisive bridesmaids, and she absolutely transformed my Mum! Plus the hair and makeup lasted all day which was my main concern. Very experienced and just made me feel so at ease as I was super nervous on the day. Thanks Jules!

Hi Julie, just wanted to FINALLY send you some pics from our special day. Thank you so so much for everything, I felt amazing! Not that I'm planning to get married again but if I did, I wouldn't hesitate to book you again! From trial to day everything was perfect. Even if I did change my mind!! thanks again, Emma x

Absolutely brilliant. From trial to wedding day Jules made me feel completely at ease. No nerves the morning of the wedding just fits of laughter between us and the photographer! Everyone complimented on my hair and makeup and said how beautiful I looked (Jules said this herself several times too 😂!) Jules was 100% the right fit for my wedding and I'd highly recommend her!

Julie was brilliant, she put me at complete ease, during the trial she was happy to spend time experimenting a number of different styles and then go back and try the favored ones, I knew I'd have nothing to worry about on the big day. Julie also done the hair for my mother and bridesmaids hair, they all looked stunning. I would thoroughly recommend Julie and will definitely use her again for a ball or other event. Thank you Julie!

Hi Elaine, it was such an honour to be part of your special day and it was great fun. You looked absolutely gorgeous. I hope you enjoyed your honeymoon xxx Keep in touch Jules xx

Jules Makeup Artistry & Hair Design's response

Julie was incredible to be with at the trial and on the big day. She was fantastic at the trial experimenting and recommending different styles and very attentive in listening to what I wanted too. She was brilliant in the lead up to the day keeping in touch and the morning of she put everyone at ease and is a pleasure to be around. Julie styled hair on the morning for myself and four bridesmaids, everyone loved their hair and we had plenty of compliments throughout the day. I highly recommend Julie for any event!

Hi Hannah, it was great to meet you for the trial and at the Wedding. It was good fun and you all looked so glamorous. I hope you had a lovely break away x Jules

Jules Makeup Artistry & Hair Design's response

Jules is professional and absolutely brilliant. I had a trial make-up and hair session with her in September in preparation for my sons wedding on the 30th December 2019. She arrived on time on the morning of the wedding, my hair looked absolutely stunning, imagine Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It stayed perfect all day , my son commented on how beautiful it looked. I felt a million dollars, thank you so much Jules.

Hi Angela It was such a pleasure to meet you both at your hair trial and makeup masterclass and on the wedding day itself. Im glad that everything stayed in place as it was a particularly early start and im honoured that you wanted to book me that early even though I had another wedding to do that day straight afterwards. Please keep in touch x Jules

Hi Jules, Just a quick email to Thank You once again for your fantastic and hard work yesterday. You are a true professional and as soon as you walked into the bridal suite I knew that we were in good hands! Our day was superb and everyone commented on all our girls beautiful hair and make up. Thank you! Lots of love Alice x x

Had my make up masterclass yesterday and it was fantastic- I would highly recommend! Not only did I come away with a full face of make up, but I learnt the theory behind every step. From contouring to colour choices, I really feel like I now know what suits my face shape, complexion and eye colour. I was able to ask questions throughout and correct those common misconceptions, all thanks to Julie’s in-depth knowledge. Thank you again, Julie xxx

Hi Julie Thank you so much for everything on Monday. Both you and Aleisha were just wonderful. The day went beautifully for Vicky and Joe... And they thoroughly enjoyed their day (photo attached). Thank you again for all your patience and hard work. Kindest regards. Debbie

Hi Jules, I just wanted to send you an email to say how grateful I am for your help yesterday! Everyone’s hair looked fantastic all day and all night, and the amount of people that called me beautiful because of your make up skills has made me feel like a million dollars. I feel like you went above and beyond for me though; being so great with the girls and my disabled Mum, and making me feel so much calmer by making me laugh. Thank you so so much for being the best hair and make up artist I could have hoped for, and for helping to make my day so perfect, and for not going to Nottingham instead! Love from the new Mrs Faulkner xxx

Julie offers not just an amazing service but she is an amazing person too. The hair and make up she did for our wedding on Friday was stunning. It even made one bridesmaid cry with happiness because she did such a beautiful job. Working with Julie is also good fun. She has a great sense of humour and she fit right in with the bridal party. Julie will not just be an amazing supplier but she will become a friend too and I know we will keep in contact. Thanks again Julie. Xx

Julie did my hair and make up for my wedding on Saturday and it blew me away. She really followed my brief which was to keep it natural and romantic, with a bit of shimmer. I felt like a princess and so many people complimented me and the bridesmaids. Thank you so much Julie 5/5 would definitely recommend xxx

Dear Jules, We’ve just returned from honeymoon and now we’re back I just wanted to say thank you so much for the incredible part you played in our wedding day. I was so unbelievably happy with my hair and make up, it was everything I dreamed of and more. Thank you also for doing such a fabulous job on the others. And a very special thank you for being there for us all as things got manic before we left. Without you, it could have got far more stressful (one word, salmon!) but you were simply amazing. We were so lucky to have you there for us all. I can’t thank you enough. I want to send proper thank you cards but this thank you just couldn’t wait. Best wishes Olivia

We are all so pleased that we asked Jules to do the hair and make-up for our bridal party in Witney recently. She is a talented hair and make-up artist and on the day was efficient and relaxed at the same time. This made the morning stress-free and such fun as she had planned out carefully the time needed to fit in 5 hair-dos and 3 make-ups. Jules worked with each of the 'girls' developing their ideas for what they would like into beautiful hair creations that suited them. She even managed to craft an amazing style for one of the bridesmaids with super curly ginger locks. Thank you.

From my very first enquiry Jules was so friendly, approachable and completely understood me and my preferences. I’ve always been a little nervous with getting my make up done but after my first trial I felt totally reassured. Thank you xxxx

Jules did hair and make up for myself and my 2 adult daughters who were my bridesmaids at my wedding in Burford on June 16 2018. She made us all so relaxed and our hair styles and make up stayed perfect all day and night. I couldn't rate Jules more highly and would really recommend her to any other brides as she was absolutely amazing. She provided pre wedding trials as well so on the day everything ran smoothly.

Jules did my hair and make-up, as well as my matron of honor and my mother. She listened to the style and look that we wanted, provided suggestions, and made us look and feel so incredibly beautiful. We could not have been happier. Jules is so friendly and helped make us all comfortable, calming our nerves. She was on time, didn't rush the job, and made sure that we were all set for the big day! I would highly recommend Jules for any occasion.

Jules was an absolute dream from the first time we met to the second she left. I couldn't have wished for a better morning preparing for my wedding and she made me feel so at ease. Her work is outstanding and we received so many compliments throughout the day about our hair and makeup. She made me feel like a goddess and she absolutely deserves this award!

Julie did such an amazing job on my wedding hair in October. It was flawless and I am so happy I made the right decision in booking her for the day. She also did my bridesmaids' hair and they all looked beautiful. I can't recommend Julie enough, for her hair talent, but also her professionalism and demeanor. She's fun to get ready with!

Where to begin?! Jules is absolutely fantastic! She makes the stressful getting ready part of the day so much fun, I didn't stop laughing, I felt very relaxed, like I had a friend doing my hair and make up. I am also a very fussy person and so had several trials with hair and make up before deciding on Jules. I've never looked so good! I 100% recommend her and her work. Thanks so much!

Lovely person, fantastic work, I felt a million dollars!

Jules is wonderful when she helped me on the make up for my big day! She has her unique sense of humor which helped me ease for the day. I was also very pleased with the make up she create for me. It was just what I wanted. Thanks Jules

I can highly recommend Jules, she did hair and makeup for me and my bridal party in May 2018, she did a fantastic job and put everyone at ease, we had a fun morning getting ready.

Exceptional makeup & hair for our recent Wedding, for a slightly older bride, two bridesmaids, modern & vintage requests! Absolutely Perfect. Professional, with an amazing sense of occasion and humour.

It was such a pleasure Annie and hope to see you in the New Year xxx

Jules did my wedding hair and make up very recently and she was fantastic. She is personable and fun and very talented and knowledgable. She has always been very responsive via text and email and the trial was done at a leisurely pace without feeling rushed.

Thank you so much for your vote and testimonial. It was lovely working with you in between Christmas and New Year. You looked so beautiful. Looking forward to seeing the professional images xx

Jules is amazing!! first class service and a personal, friendly service. We had so much fun on both the pre-wedding trial and on the day, she has this ability to put you completely at ease. I felt a million dollars on my wedding day and that was down to Jules and her professional makeover and hair. Can't recommend enough x

An amazing make up artist. Such vision and professionalism.

What an amazing service!!! Jules made me feel so special and comfortable on my big day and worked her magic! Would highly recommend to anyone and everyone!!

Jules did the hair for my bridesmaids at my wedding in September this year. She was absolutely great- professional, friendly and talented! Would highly recommend.

Excellent service - Jules is amazing!

Jules put the ladies in my bridal party completely at ease the morning of my wedding and helped me to feel like the best version of myself. Thank you Jules

Julie makeup and hair good

Hands down amazing and so lucky to have had her do my hair and makeup

Jules did my makeup and hair in February 2018 for my wedding. She was so friendly and did a fantastic job too. She really helped put me (and my bridesmaids!) at ease and made it such a lovely experience.

To whom it may apply, I have recently heard that Mrs Julie Podbery, has been nominated for an award, May I add my vote for this amazing lady. Julie came to our hotel early on the morning of my wedding day 13 October, she was going to give myself and two daughters a hair style, this she did also my maid of honour, at the last minute asked for her hair to be styled too, with a cheerful smile, Julie obliged, not only did Julie Give us an outstanding Hair style, but she gave us her warmth, smiles, laughs and she truly added to the magic of my day. I hold this lady in high regard for professional work, for her lovely kind considerate ways and just being so accommodating. Truly she deserves to win an award. Yours sincerely, Susie Houston

Jules did my hair and makeup for my wedding and was amazing!

I can highly recommend jules she was absolutely amazing on my wedding day and the trial leading up to my wedding. She also did my mums hair my sisters hair and my nieces and they all looked lovely. Thanks again jules for all your hard work would highly recommend.

Hi Jules, Apologies for the delay in sending this email, I have been meaning to sending it for a while. I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for managing to make me look good on my wedding day! My hair stayed in all day and my make up lasted too. My bridesmaids were all really happy with their hair and make up too. As well as this, thank you for being such a calming influence on my wedding morning, it was one of my favourite parts of the day, it was such a laugh, very happy memories. I now have the professional photographs back so let me know if you want me to send any to you (you are in quite a few!) if they might be of any use to you Many thanks again, Melissa ???? xx

We all just wanted to say a huge thank you for doing such an amazing job on our hair and makeup. You made the morning so fun for us all and we will send through the professional photos once they are through Lots of Love Kate xx Bryony, Michelle, Mary, Fiona, Sarah and Steph

Dear Jules Thank you so much for being so fabulous on the morning of our wedding. You were an absolute joy to spend time with, you made me laugh, relaxed me, made me feel like I wasn't going loopy with all the crazy emotions of that morning! But mostly thank you from the bottom of my heart for making me look and feel like a bride. I didn't know it was possible but you did it! You listened to everything me and the girls said, all our ideas and tailored the makeup and hair for each of us. The girls looked absolutely stunning and makeup and hair lasted until the end of the night - even with all the dancing! You are a master of your craft and I'm so happy you were available for our day - you are wonderful, thank you for everything! Love Sarah and Paul xx Wedding - Old Swan and Minster Mill, Minster Lovell

Dear Jules Thank you from the bottom of my heart for playing such an important part in making our wedding day so perfect. Not just your fabulous hair designs, but your sense of fun, laughter and just being a super lady to be around. You are the best! Warm Wishes Susie Cushing, Helen, Jen & Jess xxx

Jules Thank you so much for creating beautiful hair on me and my 4 bridesmaids. You are very talented. We all felt amazing. Your work got so many compliments. Thank you. Love Charlotte xxx (Mr & Mrs Bull) 14 April 2018

Jules was amazing- from my initial enquiry through the trial and on my wedding day. She is lovely, funny and I felt really comfortable- i also felt like the most beautiful bride on the day. I highly recommend her.

Dear Jules, Thank you so much for the beautiful hair styles you created for our wedding! We received so many compliments about how fabulous the bridal party looked. We also loved the addition of the eyelashes - I don’t think anyone wanted to take these off once the wedding was over. Both hair and eyelashes stayed perfectly in place despite a few tears (and the odd strong wind and snowfall we were subjected to). Feeling confident in your skills helped the whole morning feel happy and relaxed - it was a perfect start to the day! I also wanted to say an extra thank you for going the extra mile and arriving early in order to avoid any snow related hold ups. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone else looking for a really fantastic hair stylist! Thank you again!! Love Laura xxx P.S I have attached a few photos from the day but the attachments are rather large (hopefully it will let you view them).

Hi, I just wanted to say thank you for your work last month at our wedding it was brilliant. The bridesmaid and flower girl hairs were beautiful and I was amazed as they stayed in place all day even the flower girls which is impressive given that five years can get messy hair in minutes! But hours later and it was still perfect. And thank you for the hair and makeup you did for me it was very glamorous and traditional and the right choice to go with as I know it's something in twenty years I won't be cringing looking at photos regretting. It was very elegant so thank you and my husband liked it very much too. I've included some photos just so you can see how well it held up throughout the day. Thanks again, Vicky Jones

Not only did Julie do a fabulous job on everyone’s makeup for my wedding she really helped to make the morning of that day relaxing and stress free. Very professional with her time keeping and a genuinely lovely person. Thanks again

Amazing makeup masterclass with Julie. Great advice and techniques given too. Day makeup and night makeup guidance. Highly recommend visiting

I cant thank Julie enough for her help on my wedding morning! My bridesmaids, my mum and I all loved our hair and makeup you did for us. You were so relaxing and made the morning such an exciting part of the day! Thankyou so much! Lots of love Charlotte and Dave!

I cannot thank Jules enough making me feel so amazing on my wedding day. Jules did Hair and make up for 4 of us and everything was perfect. Everyone loved their individual styles. I felt at ease and comfortable during the whole morning and Jules helped to keep me calm and certainly made me laugh! My beautiful hair stayed in place all day and well into the evening and my make up stayed on perfectly. Thank you so much xxx

Hi Jules, thank you so much for being part of our day on Saturday, we had so much fun! You made us all look amazing and our hair & make-up lasted all day & night (no mean feat with the amount of dancing!). Thank you so much!

Julie did our hair and make up yesterday for my new sister-in-law's wedding. Julie was amazing! She is so talented and knew what would work for us all as individuals. She was professional, prepared, creative and made us all feel so at ease. Julie is amazing at hair and make up and took into account what we each wanted. The end result was perfect and lasted all day! We also had such a fun morning! Julie is a wonderful person and we laughed so much. I cannot recommend Julie more highly! Thank you!

Jules did my wedding hair and makeup on the May bank holiday along with my bridesmaids and mother of the bride and I can't recommend her enough. She's such a lovely, happy person to have around and the perfect company for sharing my wedding morning with. I loved the end result and got lots of compliments throughout the day. Thanks Jules xxxxx

Jules did my hair and makeup for my wedding at Caswell House in October. I can't recommend her strongly enough! The trial ahead of the day was brilliant - Jules really took the time to make sure I was completely happy with everything. And on top of that it was a really fun morning and a chance to indulge before the wedding. On the day of the wedding itself, Jules did the hair and makeup for my mum, sister and I. We all looked and felt amazing. We all had quite specific ideas of how we wanted to look and Jules achieved perfection. And I really appreciated the way Jules stayed at the end to help with my veil. If I could give more than five stars I would! Thank you so much Jules xxx

Julie is an absolutely fantastic hair and makeup artist, she knew what I wanted before I even did! She has unlimited patience and even did a completely different second look when I wasn't sure about what I'd initially asked for. Her products are beautiful and she puts you so at ease. Now if only I could win the lottery and employ you full time Thank you so much for the amazing job you've done, any bride who is lucky enough to have Julie on their wedding day won't be disappointed xx Honestly, if I could have you as my personal stylist, it would make all my dreams come true! I promise I'd be a good employer, plenty of benefits and lots of holidays xx

Jules and I hit it off from the first hair and make up trial, she totally understood what hairstyle and makeup I was looking for. On the day of the wedding, her cheerfulness kept me calm and I had a wonderful time getting ready for my big day. My hair and makeup stayed perfect all day and I received many compliments from my guests. I couldn't have made a better choice when I found Jules!

I have met Julie on several occasions and we met again at a yoga class recently. We got chatting very quickly and she offered to cut my hair as I have tried quite a few in the area and only get a cut when desperate. Well Julie came over yesterday and she understood straight away what difficulties I have. She is amazing. I have a lovely manageable hair style and a new friend to boot. She's a very talented lady and I would thoroughly recommend her.

Dear Julie, I just wanted to email to say thank you for all your help – you did an absolute incredible job! I have honestly never felt so beautiful in my life, and I really do put that mostly down to your efforts – for one of the first times in my life I found everyone staring at me and it didn’t make me uncomfortable. You were perfect, you made feel calm and in control all morning and I wasn’t worried at all about what you were doing – to be honest that was one of the most relaxing mornings I’ve ever had (which I’m quite proud to say considering most brides are in slight meltdown by that point!). Both my hair and makeup stayed put all day which I was so happy about, I’ve seen photos from both the start of the day and the end and they barely look any different. You are amazing at your job and I really wish you could make me look like that every day! So thank you so much, I am so glad that you were there on my big day! Thanks again, Kelly 29 August 2017 Hyde Barn

A bit late reviewing,but was very impressed at with my makeup for my daughters wedding last December,it all felt very natural and I got lots of compliments. Well done Jules

I have been thinking about the best way to write this review that is truly going to give Jules the credit that she deserves! This lady is a sheer genius, with talent and time planning. She managed to do 4 bridesmaids, a mother of the bride's hair and the hair and make up of the bride, all within 4 hours to an epic standard. I have never felt so beautiful in my entire life and everyone in my wedding party complimented my style which Jules took and ran with. Jules is a beautiful and reassuring woman, exactly what a bride needs on her big day, I would recommend highly, beyond highly! So so glad I found her! It made the day to have such an expert on board!

Thank you so much Tracey you were a delight to work with and you looked beautiful xxxxx

Jules did my hair and make up for the wedding of my daughter in April 2017. Her attention to detail, artistry and charming personality made me feel like a million dollars on the big day. Before the ceremony she calmed my nerves and made me laugh when I was emotional. She even stayed at the wedding venue to repair tear stained eye make up after the ceremony. I can't recommend her highly enough and fully intend to visit her again for a make up lesson. Thank you, Jules x

Julie did my mother of the bride make up and hair on 15 th April. She made me feel like a million dollars, calmed me down when I was emotional and was generally on hand for the whole of the wedding to touch up make up etc. I can whole heartedly recommend her to others and intend to have a make up lesson from her in the future. Thank you Julie xxx

Jules is absolutely fantastic, I really can't recommend her enough. She was so helpful throughout the whole process, and it was lovely to have her around on the morning of the wedding as she is so relaxed and enthusiastic about what she does. She created a great vintage look based on photos I'd seen. I felt amazing, as did my bridesmaids, mum, and sister. Thanks Jules!

Booking Jules was one of the best decisions I made when planning my wedding. She did mine and my bridesmaid's hair and make up for my wedding at the beginning at April. We had so much fun getting ready in the morning and she definitely helped keep my nerves at bay. I was really happy with how my hair and make up turned out and it lasted perfectly all day. I especially appreciated her staying until I was in my dress so that she could help me put on my veil and hairpiece. Thanks for everything!

Jules was an absolute delight at the trial and on the actual day. She did all of our hair absolutely beautifully and was a lovely person to have around on what could be a stressful day for some. As the bride, I was completely thrilled with my hair and all the wonderful rosemary and flowers she put in. It was professionally executed and exceedingly tasteful. Can't recommend Jules enough! Thank you.

I couldn't recommend Julie highly enough, she was fantastic and made me feel incredible and so confident. Many thanks

Absolutely five star service from Julie for my wedding in April 2017. She did hair and makeup for myself, my mother and a bridesmaid. The trails were so useful, and I went through a couple of styles a few months before the big day. It was great to have Julie around before the wedding, she is very chilled and just makes you laugh all the time! Julie has access to the best quality make-up products and regularly tests new brands/products to see if they are up to her high standards. The make-up she stocks is suitable for variety of skin types and looks. I had a 1920/30's vintage look for the wedding and the shades she chose were perfect. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone.

I got married on 28/4/17 at The Bay Tree Hotel in Burford, Oxfordshire. Jules came highly recommended and from the first time I met her for my hair and makeup trial , I knew I had made the right decision. On my actual wedding day, my daughter and I were so thrilled with what she did that we really couldn't recommend her highly enough. Jules is such good fun and a true professional .

"I can't thank Jules enough. From the moment we met she has been approachable, warm and friendly. We clicked straight away, she was great from the start. She supported and explored my ideas through trials , emails, phone calls, always happy to talk and help. On the day she arrived early set up and got to work on the bridesmaids , mother of the bride and myself... Everything was perfect, everyone was thrilled with the results. Amazing and creative. . she even helped me to get in my dress ! What a star.. I looked amazing she did everything exact and to perfection, the photos looked flawless and my makeup and hair lasted all day and through to the early hours. Thank you so much Jules. I would highly recommended to all brides and bridal parties.. " Best wishes Julie X

Jules is simply incredible! She took my ideas and developed them to perfection - creating a beautiful vintage look. I'm not one to wear a lot of makeup but from the moment of my hair and makeup trial, she put me at total ease. On my wedding day, it was more like having a friend there - chatting away, providing words of wisdom and support, along with drinking copious cups of tea! Jules really does go the extra mile and cares about her clients. It was an absolute pleasure to have her share our special day. She made me feel so beautiful, glamorous and confident and that radiated throughout the day. Not to mention making my Mum and maid-of-honour look absolutely stunning! I had so many complements on the day and looked like a Hollywood starlet, so mission accomplished!

You were truly amazing and all involved were so impressed with what you both did! Both bridesmaids were extremely happy with both hair and makeup and looked totally beautiful! My mum was extremely grateful for how you managed her hair and as she says her hair is awkward!! My now sister in law had so many compliments on her do and can't thank you enough! And then then to mine...what can I say from my trial to the day you made it so easy! This was a big part of my day but was so stress free! I had so many positive comments on my hair and make up was just stunning and lasted all day and night! All of what you did was worth every penny and I hope I have a special occasion so I can have an excuse to see you again!! I will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks! Many thanks again xx

Thank you so much for making me look and feel fantastic on my wedding day. My bridesmaids were over the moon with their hair and you also managed to achieve the impossible with my Mum - she is normally a very fussy customer where her hair is concerned but loved both her hair and make-up. We were all complemented throughout the day and personally I felt like a princess! I am so pleased that I decided to have monthly facials in the lead up to the wedding, my skin is in the best condition ever and looked truly flawless on our special day. It's been an absolute pleasure getting to know you and I will be recommending your services at every opportunity.Thank you... thank you... thank you!!

A huge thank you to Julie (and Sophie) for making my wedding day so special. We had such a good time the morning of the wedding getting ready and we all LOVED our hair and make up, it looked stunning and everything stayed in place the whole day. I really can't thank you enough, you did an amazing job and any brode will be lucky to have you by their side :) xx

Jules is amazing. Beautiful makeup application and excellent hair design. You won't be disappointed if you book Jules makeup Artistry & hair for your special day.

Julie did my hair and make up for my wedding day and she did an absolutely wonderful job. With her colleague they also managed a few bridesmaids and a flower girl with no hassle or fuss, it was relaxed and fun. I would thoroughly recommend Julie!

It's rare to meet a make up artist and hairdresser who is not only enthused with creativity, talent and skill but is also a genuine and warming person. Jules was so professional and supportive: from the very first trial and throughout the wedding morning in which she beautifully carried out hair and make up for myself (the bride) my 3 bridesmaids and both mums. She not only listens to your needs, comes with an army and diverse range of excellent products but offers expert advice and her experience shines throughout. I've never felt so happy with my make up and hair and received so many lovely comments on just how amazing it was! I truly felt like a vintage princess for the day and had Jules to thank for it all. 100% recommended to all brides"

Thank you so much Jules for doing make up for me and my mum for my wedding. You were so flexible in fitting me in at quite late notice, I really appreciated you making it work! The make up was beautiful - I want you to do my make up every day! Mum loved her make up too. Thank you for making me look 'like me but better'!

Jules had endless patience! She was so keen to do a fab job and certainly did one, for both me and my bridesmaids. She's great fun too!!

From the moment I saw Jules's website, I knew I wanted to book her for my wedding. As soon as I met her I felt in safe hands. The whole service from start to finish was professional and caring, with such attention to detail. Thank you Jules, my bridesmaids were over the moon with how they looked, and I felt incredible. X

I loved being part of your big day, the trial and was honoured to have been invited to the wedding after only meeting you once at the trial. I feel I have found a friend for life and such a lovely venue at Lower Slaughter Inn xxx

Jules Makeup Artistry & Hair Design's response

Jules was just amazing! She totally looked after me from our first email all the way through the trial make-up session and of course, on our wedding day. Her gorgeous personality coupled with such talent and skill with make up and brushes in her hands made her stand heads and shoulders above other artists. She listened to what I wanted to achieve and then took all this into consideration when choosing the colours of my skin - along with my dress style - and just made me look the best I've ever looked, which is EXACTLY how you want to look and feel on the most special day of your life - your wedding day. I would love Jules to win this award as she is not only a totally fantastic make up artist, but just the most wonderful person and I couldnt have found anyone that could have come close. She ticks every single box!

Jules did an amazing job on my hair and make-up, and put me at ease. My hair is very temperamental and I was worried about how it would look in the day, though I really didn't need to as Jules made it look perfect. What makes Jules really special is that it feels like you have a friend with you on the day, having lovely suppliers is so important and Jules fit in with my family and friends and was laughing and joking along with us. It was a pleasure to have her with me during the pre-wedding prep. I would highly recommend to anyone!

Jules did an amazing job of myself and the bridesmaids! We couldn't have been happier! Jules created exactly what we were after, natural make up which wasn't cakey but yet was flawless - Everyone said we looked stunning!! Jules was calm and professional at all times, but also funny and chatty which made us all feel at ease. Jules hair helper Sophie was also amazing, she created amazing 'up-do's' which lasted the entire day which looking natural without using to much product! We all had the trial for the hair and make-up, this really helped to see what the end result would look like but also gave us chance to change different bits and add bits and more lipstick, less lipstick more hair up, more hair down - it was brilliant!! I had a second trial in Glenda which was amazing! A fully kitted out caravan which had all the hair and make-up products I had ever seen! Completely relaxed 1 on 1 with Jules to finalise the last minute details, perfect setting with comfy cushions and a cuppa tea! Jules and Sophie did a fabulous job - I would 1,000% recommend them both for wedding/occasion hair and makeup! Hannah xx

Jules took our ideas and put her own twist on them, making them better than we could ever have imagined. She excelled in the quality of her work and is a true professional.

I can't recommend Julie highly enough. I felt so special on my wedding day and it was all thanks to her amazing vision with my hair and make up. My three bridesmaids were all delighted with their up dos and they stayed perfectly all day. Everyone's make up looked flawless I could never manage this by myself! Julie is amazing and we had such a laugh during the trial and on the day itself, she really put me at ease and the results were just perfect. Thank you!!!!

From start to finish, Jules was just fantastic and everything I wanted from a hair & makeup professional for my big day. She took plenty of time with me to work out the exact look we wanted together, and we trialed lots of styles before picking the right one for my big day. On top of the fabulous service, beautiful hair styling and professional make-up, Jules is a great giggle and I couldn't have wished for a calmer nor bubblier person to spend the wedding morning with! My hair & makeup lasted all day - I didn't have to do one touch up, which was perfect. I would absolutely recommend to all brides if you want professional hair & make-up, delivered by a fabulously warm and friendly lady!

Jules is amazing! She did an incredible job with my hair and makeup on the day, I couldn't have been happier! I absolutely loved my hair and make-up, it was exactly what I was after and made me feel so pretty on the day! The bridesmaids looked totally gorge too! Natalie Gidley

Hi Julie the flowers are a huge thank you for all that you did for me on Saturday. I can't believe how sweet you were and thank you for getting my mum to the Church! Emma xxx

Hello gorgeous! Thank you for making me look and feel really special yesterday. We had an AMAZING day and everyone commented on my make up saying how beautiful I looked. It still looked incredible at 1am this morning! You are such a whizz with a make up brush and I loved how much I felt like we'd known each other for years! I honestly hope that we stay in touch, Jules - thank you much! Big love xxxx

Hi Julie, Hope your well, just wanted to say a quick thank you for all you help on the 4th, it was great to feel so relaxed and supported. Thought you might like to see one of the pictures the photographer took if the bridesmaids hair, it all looked beautiful and I was sorry to take it out at the end of the night! Best wishes, Rebecca.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you! The makeup and hair was perfect ! She looked like a movie star and took my breath away ! Thanks for everything !! " Jemma b

Thanks Julie for the great job that you did with everyone's makeup for my wedding. We all looked great and the make up stayed in place perfectly the whole day even on the hot day that we had. Julie was very professional from the start and was the only make up artist to call me and discuss my requirements when I first enquired. She really knows her stuff and I highly recommend her.

Thank you so much Jules for all your help, you have an amazing talent and kind, funny, personality which kept my nerves at bay. Thank you Jules for everything. We would highly recommend you to any bridal party xx ❤️

Could not recommend Jules anymore, she did an amazing job on my hair and makeup for my wedding and also most recently for my baby shower, would not go anywhere else x

Thank you to Glenda The Powder Room (and Jules) you made me feel a million dollars for a very special event. Glenda The Vintage Powder Room is just fab and Jules well you made me feel so comfortable which is really important to enjoy the whole experience. Could not recommend anyone better. Thank you so, so much! Xxx

I highly recommend Julie. She was recommended to me by a friend after doing her wedding hair and make up. She did my hair and make up fort wedding on Saturday and also my bridesmaid's hair. I could not have been happier with the outcome. Julie was also lovely to deal with, very warm, reassuring, calming an complementary on my special day. She was also early on the day and communication throughout the whole time I have known her has been fantastic. She took the time to understand my vision and to make sure everything was perfect and that I was 100% happy at all times. She is extremely talented, a pleasure to work with and I can thoroughly recommend her work.

Dear Julie I am writing to thank you and Sophie for doing the hair and makeup at the wedding of my daughter, Catherine on 21 June 2014. Sophie did an amazing job especially on my hair. Whatever she did - it stayed in place all day. She put my hat on and it looked perfect! Thank you for coming to our rescue and please pass on my gratitude to Sophie with my best wishes Mrs Brooks

Hi Julie I'm so sorry that I haven't been in touch since the wedding. I just wanted to say thank you so much for organising a plan B for the 21st. Obviously we were really disappointed that we didn't get to see you but given the circumstances it was definitely the best thing to do. We were all thinking of you. And to be honest the morning ran so smoothly and with the 3 girls there we were all ready with loads of time to chill and enjoy the moment. Danielle stayed to help with the last minute tittervating and we sailed through without any hitches at all! It was the perfect day and everyone was really pleased with both hair and make-up. Especially mum who was getting very anxious about it - Hayley was very good with her and did a great job of making us both look and feel very natural. Both Sidonie and Danielle did fantastic jobs too, I was really pleased and we all had lots of compliments! If the girls would like pictures for their portfolios etc I can speak to the photographer - we got the website details this weekend - 900 photos to go through!! Some gorgeous hair and make-up ones there. Wishing you all the best with your rehab Becky x

I was very pleased with Julie for doing my hair so lovely for my wedding day on the 15th June 2014 we had some good laughs on the day so I would highly recommend Julie if you are looking for someone to do hair for a wedding or other special occasions Hayley

Hi Jules Thank you for all your hard work on my wedding day. My bridesmaids' hair and makeup were beautiful and everyone said I looked gorgeous so I must believe them!! I hope you will feel better very soon Take Care Severine x

Jules, what can I say! You were an absolute gem from the word go on our big day. You calmed my nerves and made me giggle, I'll never forget the cows ganging up on the calf! You are an incredibly talented lady and I can't thank you enough for all your efforts. My husband thanks you for making me a beauty! The girls looked incredible too. You three girlies make a fantastic team and I couldn't have asked for anything more. Our day was truly perfect. I will be recommending you to everyone :) Thank you so much again, Mrs Griffiths :) xxx Caswell House 16 May 2014

To Julie Thank you so much for making me feel and look fantastic on my wedding day. My dress looked amazing with my new hair and makeup . I had so many compliments. The makeup stayed on all day and I didnt touch it up once. My hair also stayed in place. We had a fantastic day, so thanks again for your help in that. Best Wishes Sue

Dear Julie, Just a quick note to say thank you so much for doing my hair and make up on Saturday (and for doing all the bridesmaids too). I really enjoyed the process of having it done as you put me at ease and I was really pleased with the finished effect. I know that all the bridesmaids really liked their hair/makeup too. It was really nice to meet you All best wishes, Hana

I was really pleased with the hair and makeup. I was a bit nervous about having someone else do my makeup because I am so fair skinned, but it was really helpful to have the trial before hand to fully understand what I did and didn't want. You took a real interest in the wedding and getting a sense of the theme and colourings to make sure the hair and makeup matched, and you were so friendly and made me feel really comfortable straight away. Thank you so much! Rebecca xx xx Caswell House Feb 2014

During a visit to a wedding fair, I met Julie and noticed she was offering the package I was searching for- Hair and Makeup! She instantly made me feel relaxed and she had a genuine interest in my wedding and how she would fit into the day. During my trial, Julie was able to follow my vague hair and make up ideas and I instantly loved the work she had done. On my wedding day, Julie arrived early and organised her numerous bags of makeup while she chatted to me and my bridesmaid, helping to keep the morning relaxed. Julie stayed until I was in my dress and happy with my look. All of our hair and makeup looked fantastic and original. We had constant compliments and our hair and makeup stayed immaculate all night long. I would highly recommend Julie for perfect wedding hair and Makeup. hank you so much for doing such a fantastic job! Kayleigh King The Bay Tree Hotel, Burford 21st February 2014

Hi Julie I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful hair and make up you created for myself, 3 daughters and 2 very excitable grandchildren on my wedding day. From the first contact with you i felt as if you were a friend who i had just called for a chat about ideas it was so easy to talk to you. It was a lovely experience being with you on the day your calmness and reassurance to all of us was amazing the whole morning was spent chatting and laughing and we all felt safe in your hands. I would recommend Julie to everyone. Once again a great big thank you Julie . Lynn x The Bay Tree Hotel Burford 15/2/14
