Natalie - Wedding hair stylist and make-up artist Teddington
Natalie’s friendly, laid-back attitude and no-stress approach to potentially stressful events like weddings and fashion shows puts people at ease. Her attention to detail when she works is evident in the final outcome, whether it be a gorgeous image or a beautiful bride. Although relaxed, Natalie is a perfectionist and nothing but perfect wedding hair and bridal make-up will do.
Natalie says: ''I love to do a clean beautiful natural look. Making people look like the best possible version of themselves is something I excel at. I am also pretty darn good at pin-up 40s and 50s style hair and makeup - lip lines and eye lines have to be spot on to perfect these looks.

What Natalie's brides have to say:
"The wedding was amazing, everything was perfect and I was so happy with how I looked, thank you so much. Also my Chief Bridesmaid looked amazing too, she was really happy with her hair and makeup...Thanks again for all your help - you were brilliant on the day, very calming!"
"Natalie was simply fantastic! Never before has my hair been described by my friends as a work of art, and that's thanks to Natalie. She spent time before my wedding making sure I found the style that was right for me, and had a real skill of creating styles exactly as I had asked. On the day of my wedding, she had a calm but friendly approach, and brought a team of people to make sure everyone who neeed hair and makeup were ready in plenty of time without feeling rushed. Natalie made me look and feel great for my wedding - what more can a girl ask for?!"
"I cannot thank you enough for making our day so special. The make-up and hair for all of us was fantastic and I have no problem at all recommending you to any bride-to-be. Thank you for transforming me from a Plain Jane to a very complimented bride!"
"Got back from my honeymoon recently and just wanted to say a big thank-you for the wonderful job you did on mine and my bridesmaids hair and make-up! We received such lovely compliments on your fantastic work, and we had an amazing day!"
"Thank you! Thank you! Thank you from both mums, the bridesmaid and myself for doing our hair and make-up! at Woodlands Park Hotel in June 2011. We all felt absolutely fantastic and had so many compliments My bridesmaid and I did a trial session in April and were so impressed with how you listened to us and came up with suggestions. Then on the wedding day, we were all extremely impressed with how calm you were and how you managed to get us all ready before the midday ceremony! Looking forward to organising or attending another big event so I can have my hair and make-up done again."
"Natalie was utterly wonderful to work with and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Despite being nearly 8 months pregnant on my wedding day, Natalie's expertise made me look and feel radiant for the entire day. Our trial was great fun too, it was a great opportunity to experiment with make up and hair styles. Natalie is so easy going, she is reliable, punctual, incredibly talented and has a lovely calm manner; I was nothing but confident and relaxed with her, which is surely what every woman wants on her wedding day!"
"Natalie was my hairdresser when I got married in September 2010, and I can't recommend her highly enough. She really listened to what I wanted, got it right first time at the rehearsal, and was really calm and helpful on the day of the wedding. She even managed to get my three-year-old niece to sit still and have her hair curled! Natalie's really talented, and lovely too."
"Natalie did my wedding hair in October 2010 and she was amazing! She came to my house for a trial & was very helpful. On the Wedding day, she met me at my hotel and completely put me at ease. I was so pleased with the results! One of my bridesmaids also got their hair done by Natalie & loved it! I found her easy to talk to & listened to everything i wanted. Her prices were very reasonable! I would definitely use her again for another occasion!"
"I just want to thank you for your patience with our wedding. And I know that I was a bit of a mess during our trial and was frustrated by the hair. However, I received more compliments on my hairstyle than anything else at the wedding! Seriously! It was beautiful. Thank you so much."
Thank you for the fantastic job you did at the wedding - my hair was exactly (and I do mean exactly!) the way I wanted it to be. I had loads and loads of compliments on dress/make-up etc, but the most glowing were definitely about the hair. So thank you SO much, it really did help make me feel fantastic. Definitely something I couldn't have done myself! If anybody I know ever needs hair doing I will definitely recommend you!
