6 Longridge Rd, Hedge End,, Southampton, SO30 0GU

Using my 21+ years experience of wedding hair design and flattering make-up. I will help you look beautiful, feel amazing and be your own unique self in a natural way on your Wedding Day.

I believe that beauty isn't just about how you look, it's also about how you feel on your wedding day, I want you to feel beautiful and confident as you walk down the aisle and in your photographs which will give you special lasting memories.

I established my business in April 2000 as a Mobile Make-up Artist and Hairstylist for Special Occasions, having worked in the industry some years previously. On the day of your Wedding I will travel to your chosen location to help you feel pampered and relaxed ready for your big day.

I am known for being a specialist for creating natural looks for my Brides who often wear barely any make-up on a regular basis. I also specialise with working with more mature Brides who are excited to be marrying their soul mate and want to look gorgeous on their wedding day.
I have a purpose built Makeover Studio at my home in Hedge End where I offer Consultations, Trials and selected Beauty Treatments to help you prepare for your occasion or for some pampering.

Make-up Lessons

I offer step by step make-up tuition where you will learn tips and techniques to create an individual look for you. A make-up lesson also gives you chance to try new products, gain experience in using different colours & techniques, and helps build your confidence. A make-up lesson is a perfect pre-honeymoon option so you can learn how to apply your make-up perhaps in the evenings to enhance your natural beauty.
Please see my website for details.

Health & Wellbeing

I also believe it is really important to look after your health and wellbeing leading up to the wedding and in the future. In 2016 I introduced a health and wellbeing side to my business with natural plant based solutions and now offer education and advice to Brides who would like help with reducing stress and anxiety or to improve a health condition whether it is mental, emotional or physical.
Please contact me for more information.

A Bride to be

"“Melinda did my hair and make-up for my wedding. I found her though a google search and The Bridal File and I’m so glad I did! I had a trial at her gorgeous home studio – which felt like a trip to a spa! – and Melinda listened to everything I wanted, looked at photos I’d brought with me, and we played with different looks until I was buzzing with excitement."

A Bride to be


"“I want to say a huge thank you Melinda for giving me the most amazing hair and makeup for my wedding party. I was getting constant compliments all night and my make up stayed put all night too. I honestly can’t thank you enough for also lacing me into my dress and doing such a good job that I didn’t have to pull it up once!!! X” Natalie – Bride"
