I booked Kate to do my hair and makeup for my wedding in May. Super service!! On the day – Kate was relaxed and accommodating (even doing hair for last minute people who hadn’t booked!!) that it made the day so much easier for me. She even managed to relax my Mum!!!! Have to say me and the girls looked super and felt super as well – Hair stayed up all day and night. Thanks again! Lisa Maloney

I have just returned from my honeymoon after getting married on the 22nd of September. Kate called to my home on the morning of my wedding and I have to say she was fantastic. She is such a lady and had such a calming effect on me in particular. I got back from the beauticians and she had already finished my bridesmaid and sister’s hair and was almost finished my 3 year old flower girl’s hair which was a challenge in itself! I hadn’t much of an idea what to do with my flowergirl’s hair but Kate just got on with it and produced the cutest curls you can imagine. She looked like an angel. Kate thank you so much for you kindness and attention on my wedding morning and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any bride to be. You are a true star and the up styles were fantastic. Thanks again. Tracey Dowd

Thank you so much Kate for the wonderful hairstyles and all your help on the morning of my wedding. Not only did you do a wonderful job on our hair but you calmed us all when we were having trouble tieing the bow on the sash of my dress and saved the day by tieing it for us!! If anyone wants to see our hair just go to http/firstlook.ie and click on Dec 2010 Lorraine & Michael. The curls you see in my hair stayed in until the next day (and curls never stay in my hair) and my sisters looked like they had loads of hair when in actual fact one has shoulder length hair and the other has hair above her shoulders. I don´t know how you managed it but those styles were amazing and we all loved them. I recommend Kate to any bride, not only will you get an excellent stylist but you will also get a very calm and helpful person who will turn her hand to anything to help out on the morning and believe me this is much needed. Many thanks again Kate. Lorraine Egan

Kate was a treasure on my big day! She walked in and set up base, emanating all calm and ease! It was great that I didn’t have to worry about anything. No rush out in traffic, with all the lady folk in tow… the girls could go around and be at ease, whilst Kate prepared each head with care and consideration! A lazy breakfast was being had in one room, and happy chat and hairstyling in an other! I knew the very first day I met Kate that she was the woman I needed. She suggested a hairstyle based on my face shape and my own notions. Really I just wanted my hair up and out of the way, with some curls! And she operated so deftly and assuredly that I hardly even noticed! She wanted to try more styles, and I allowed one more, but she had hit the winning style first go and I was chuffed! There are a million things that can cause consternation leading up to the big day, not least the hair for you and the ladies. But with Kate on my side, her calm influence, and a little magic in her fingers, it was like bibbiddy-boddy-boo! Transformed beauties! Thank you Kate, you’re a star!! Roisin Elsafty

Thank you so very much for your amazing job with all of our hair-dos. You are one of, if not the most creative and talented hairstylist I have ever worked with. All of us were extremely happy with our hair. My mom was so pleased she felt very comfortable and natural with what you created. I also loved how each of my bridesmaids had a different style, it was fantastic! Spending the morning of my wedding with you was a pleasure. I wish you many years of success and happiness. Alayne

I got married 60 miles away from where I lived so trying to find someone to do my hair and make up was extra difficult! It was recommended that I try Kate and Caroline and I was so glad that I did! Unfortunately Caroline was booked on my wedding day, but Kate went out of her way to find someone else for me and the total effect on the day was just amazing! I was delighted with the end result, but also, Kates calming influence helped to keep the nerves at bay and helped to make my wedding day the best in my life! Many thanks to Kate for all her help and with her talents I’m sure success is guaranteed! Jean McGuinness

From my initial meeting with Kate I knew that she was the one who could give me the professional expertise that I needed. Kate is a highly professional, competent, realiable and creative hair stylist. She also has the most wonderful manner, being a warm and intuitive lady. I can honestly say that I could not recommend anyone as highly as Kate. She lived up to all of my very high expectations and many more. Thank you Kate for being part of my wedding day, you were only fantastic and I count myself fortunate in having met you. Maeve Meeneghan.

Kate was really what i needed,I new the first day i met Kate that she had many years of experience and expertease behind her,She did myself 4 bridesmaids and my daughter with such effertless ease.Her sevice is excelent it was very relaxed and Kate went out of her way to come all the way to where i live a fair bit of a distance to where she lives,we had great peace of mind getting kate as we new what her professional standards were like after she had done the trial for myself and chief bridesmaid i would highly recommend using Kate and like to give her a big thank you from all of us. Tammy Sweeney

I would just love to thank Kate for making the morning of my wedding the most enjoyable ever! Even the bridesmaids commented on how relaxed we all were and we had such a laugh and a big chat over the fry at breakfast. My hair lasted all day, even with the top down car (not always a good idea) and well into the night. Thank you so much Kate for everything and I will keep recommending you to everyone I hear is getting married. Sharon Ruane

Kate did a wonderful Job on my hair. She gave me exactly what I asked for. It felt very comfortable and natural. My hair stayed up the whole day, considering I got married on a very windy day in Inis mor, on a cliff In September!!! She managed to come to Inis mor where others woudn’t so I’m very grateful for that Kate!! Thank you!! Lisa Armelles

Just wanted to thank you so much again for the fabulous work you did on turning yours truly into a film star for the day. I had so many compliments on my hair and makeup and how Hollywood I looked that I am beaming in every pic! I owe it all to you two. Thanks so much. By the way, you two also contributed hugely to the relaxed environment on the morning. I really appreciate it. Siobhan

Kate & Pauline arrived at the Wineport the morning of my wedding and instantly the nerves dissappeared. It was our first meeting but it felt as if we knew each other for years! Both girl’s transformed myself and my 2 bridesmaids, we all were complemented throughout the day on our hair and make-up. The fact that the girls work as a team really worked and made the experience a great one. Thank you so much for making me feel like a princess and for making the morning of my wedding one i won’t forget X Ger Wright

Hi Kate/Pauline. Just wanted to write you both a note to thank you so much for the hair and makeup on my wedding day, it was perfect. You are both brilliant. The hair never moved all day even when I was out in the wind & rain and I loved the makeup. Everyone at the wedding commented on the hair styles you created for me and my sisters and also on how beautiful the makeup was. And I think the photos look even better than I imagined with the help of you both to create a fantastic look for me. Regards, Rose

Just a short note to say a big thank you to you both, you did an amazing job, the hair and make up was just so fantastic, better than I could ever have imagined! You really made the day so special and made me feel so special on the day. Your relaxed attitude and professionalism really made the day morning in the house such an enjoyable experience. I know it wasn’t an easy journey so early in the morning to Achill, so I really appreciate it. I will highly recommending! Deborah McNamara

Hi Kate, just want to thank you for the wonderfully entertaining morning I had when you made my daughter, Sara, and her four beautiful bridesmaids into such a bevvy of beauties! The intricate hairstyles certainly looked marvellous and complimented the dresses and you made it all look so easy. So many guests remarked on the hairstyles. Thank you once again forbeing part of what was a very memorable day. And the pictures look amazing – the hair stayed up all day! Best wishes! Cynthia Wyatt

Hi Kate, Just wanted to write a note to say thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job on my hair for my wedding day. The whole experience with you was great. The hair trail was so relaxed and you understood exactly what I wanted and followed through on the day creating a fab style. You also did beautiful styles on my 2 sisters and my mam and we were all so happy with how the hair looked for the day. Also would like to say you were lovely to have in our house the morning of the wedding and I would highly recommend you. Thanks again Debbie L.

Hi Kate/Pauline, I justed wanted to say thank you for wonderful job you did on mine and my bridesmaids hair and make-up on the morning of my wedding. It was perfect…. and my hair and makeup last all day despite really bad weather conditions. Everyone on the day commented on how well our hair and makeup looked. I have no hestitation in recommending you to all future brides. Thanks again. Donna Clifford

I had my wedding on June 4th in the Marriot Hotel. Kate traveled down the night before and was in my hotel room first thing in the morning to get my four bridesmaids, my mum, my gran and myself ready. She gave us the perfect hair styles with a different look to each one of us. Kate made us all feel so relaxed, chatting and joking with us. The compliments we received on the day confirmed how well we felt and looked. I would definitely recommended Kate to any bride to be. Aoife Kent

I got married on the 10th of February and Kate came to my home to do my hair and my bridesmaids’ hair. We were all thrilled with the results. She really made us look and feel beautiful! She was so relaxed on the day and she helped to create a calm fun atmosphere. Not having to leave the house was a real bonus as we had an early wedding and there was no rushing or stress. I would highly recommend Kate to anyone who wants a hassle free wedding morning! Thanks a million Kate! Jacqui McGovern

I can not recommend Kate and Caroline more highly! I got married in November. Kate and Caroline provided a completely relaxed but highly professional service. They helped to make the morning of my wedding exactly what I wanted, relaxed, easy going and fun! I was totally confident in Kate’s abilities after my hair trial and I was so happy with the results. Whether its up styles, natural curls or just simple blow drys, everything she does is just perfect. I didn’t have a chance to have a trial with Caroline but my makeup was flawless, she had this amazing ability to understand exactly want I needed, the result was just perfection! They both accommodated larger numbers than initially expected but still made sure that everyone including myself wasn’t at all rushed. I felt like a princess as I left my room the morning of my wedding and I know that’s due in no small part to Kate and Caroline, thank you so much to both of you!! Irene Cormican

Kate & Pauline arrived at our house on the morning of my wedding(despite thick fog!) in February. It’s easy for everything to become chaotic & hectic in the hours before a wedding – so it was vital to have people like Kate & Pauline who instantly provided calm & reassurance on arrival! I am so glad I chose stylists who knew each other too – as they do work as a fantastic team together (which also saves time on such a busy morning where time evaporates so quickly!). From the very start (at the hair trial), Kate really took on board what i wanted & created a very simple look without trying to force something over-elaborate. She also took into account my profile & face to ensure the style worked & suited me. Other stylists I tried did not do this & consequently the styles looked dreadful on me!! Pauline as well knew exactly which shades were required for a natural make-over, and also had great experience in knowing how colours can look very different in photographs. (something I had never thought of & am so glad i put my trust in her!) Thank you both so much for making us all feel so special on what was a perfect day. I can’t recommend them both enough – they are wonderful fun as well as being utterly professional. Natalie Morgan-Davies
