Frances doesn’t believe in the term ‘bridal hair and makeup’, and prefers to work with her clients to find their personal style away from the influences of social media, which can be overwhelming and stressful. Her skills lie in creating modern, boho, classic and natural makeup and hair. Frances always aims to ensure there is a clear and seamless transition throughout the preparation stage of a wedding, and she has a wealth of experience in all dress fastenings and veil sets. She can also provide any last minute touch ups, along with a more bespoke service where you may want her to stay for a change of hair and or makeup before your evening’s entertainment.
In her professional hair and makeup kits are products which she has carefully selected for their high performance qualities. This ensures your wedding styling has everything it needs to look effortless, whilst having the stability it needs for such an occasion. These include; Anastasia Beverly Hills, BaByliss PRO, Benefit, Becca, Bobbi Brown , Bumble & Bumble, Charlotte Tilbury, Dior, Hourglass, Huda Beauty, Laura Mercier, LA Girl, L’Oréal Professionnel, MAC, Makeup Geek, NARS, Sigma, Tarte and Urban Decay to name a few.
