Gold Coast / Tweed Heads /  Byron Bay

Hair is 50-60mins per head and makeup is 45-60mins per head.

We can cater to any amount you desire! With a great team of stylists, we will look after you! On my own I can usually do up to 8 Hairstyles depending on what time everyone needs to be ready by! *WEEKEND BOOKINGS: A MINIMUM OF 5 PEOPLE MUST BE BOOKED IN FOR HAIR OR MAKE-UP!

Yes, we do. There is a Public Holiday surcharge – add 10% onto your service.

A deposit is required to secure your group booking. All deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable and are deducted from your total invoice amount.

Yes, I do recommend doing trials! It is a great way to meet each other and discuss all the details of your day! Also to be able to create the perfect style and makeup for you and see how you feel and like it too! We will also discuss your bridesmaid’s looks to establish timings for the day as well. I recommend organising your trial on a day such as your hen’s night or a special event so you can wear it out and see how everything feels!

No you don’t have to, it is personal choice, as some people live interstate and is hard to get together before hand! Some brides are happy with our testimonials and our portfolio and feel comfortable with no trial!

I recommend arranging your trials about 2-3 months before your event / wedding day!

Clean Hair:

wash your hair the night or day before, do 2 shampoos and not too much conditioner, rinse out well!

No products are to be put in the hair eg. Serums, smoothing creams, argon oil etc.

Blow-dry your hair as smooth as possible without putting a straightening iron over it.

Don’t tie up your hair in a messy bun! Leave it out or in a loose pony tail.

Hair Accessories!

Bring along any hair clips / veil fascinator etc. to see how they look in your style!

Do you have enough hair to create your desired hairstyle? If you require extra length or thickness, the best is clip-in Hair Extensions! Ask me for recommendations! 

Clean Skin: Cleanse skin and apply a light moisturiser, wear no makeup. Bring along pictures of the desired look you are going for! Any lip colours that you would prefer to use.

Yes! This is a great way to see the complete look put together!

Have your trial when you have a special event on such as birthday party, hen’s party, a girl’s night out, baby shower. You can wear your complete look out and put it to the test! What to wear? Wear neutral / white top or clothes so you can get an idea how everything will look on the day!

Yes! Feel free to bring a supportive friend or family member with you!

The best room to get ready in are usually the living / dining area, which are big enough for all your bridesmaids, hair and make-up artist, photographers, family members. Access to a power point, table or bench space and a room with lots of natural light!

Wash your hair the night or day before, do 2 shampoos and not too much conditioner, rinse out well! No products are to be put in the hair eg. Serums, smoothing creams, argon oil etc.

Blow-dry your hair as smooth as possible without putting a straightening iron over it.

Don’t tie up your hair in a messy bun! Leave it out or in a loose pony tail.

Wear a buttoned up / zip up or strapless top that is easy to change out of.

When putting your face moisturiser on that morning try to avoid applying it near or into your hairline. Shampoo your hair on the day of your wedding if you are having a blow dry or if your hair gets oily fast.

Clean Fresh Face, you can apply a light moisturiser. Any allergies/sensitivities should be brought to our attention prior to the appointment so special arrangements can be made.

Have your lips waxed/threaded and your brows waxed/threaded to avoid any unwanted shadows. Ensure you do any waxing/shaving before your day. And also exfoliate your skin leading up to getting your tan!

Have your hair freshly coloured 1-2 weeks before your wedding day. 

Get them waxed or threaded 1 week before your day, also your upper lip if needed too! This will make your make-up sit better on your skin!

If you are having a Spray tan for your wedding day it is a good idea to test it out before your day and get one the day before your make-up trial to see how you like the tone. Then if your happy you can do the same for your wedding day!

They came on the day to our house, and we had hair and makeup done for 5 of us and hair for 3 kids. There was one makeup artist and one hair stylist who did everybody, and they were honestly so great! They just came in and got it all done, no stress, and all so quickly too.

I can’t speak highly enough about Mel! Not only is she so talented and skilled at what she does, but her beautiful personality will just instantly brighten your day! Not only did she take on ‘bridesmaid duty’ at my wedding, but she also took on the responsibility of styling everyone’s hair! We were all so happy with what she came up with for each of us, she just captured what we were all after perfectly. She is an award-winning hair stylist for a reason - I just love her, and her work!

Tape VS Clip-In Hair Extensions: Which is better for the big day

Looking to add length to my hair (currently medium length with thick hair) and wondering which is better, tape or clip in extensions. Also the price ranges of both and some recommended salons/companies. Thanks!

Hair I Come

Hi Chloe!

I prefer to work with clip in Extensions for all my hairstyling work! As you can place them where you need them and also the direction that you need for them to work for a certain style! Sometimes tape extensions are hard to hide in particular upstyles and they are sometimes put in fixed positions too so you need to consider that! I recommend Zala Clip in Extensions, as they are easy to work with, great quality hair and have good hair clips! They are also easy to colour match too ! Their website is Their prices start from about $140 and they have fast shipping too! x

How do you choose your hair and makeup artist?!?

There are so many different companies and people out there and I'm just finding it so difficult to choose. I dont know how much i should be spending and im no makeup expert so i dont know what I'm looking for. I dont know how to decide, what questions should i be asking? what should i be looking for? Also whats the difference between airbrush and traditional? Will airbrush be better if my wedding is in summer? Hellllpppppppp pleaseeeee

Hair I Come

Hi Alexandra! How to choose your hair and makeup artist!!! First start looking for hairstyles and makeup that you love! ...Pinterest is a great place to start! Once you know what style you are after, check out Instagram and Facebook, here you can search pages of hairstylists and makeup artists and if you love their style of work, and can see the hairstyles or makeup that you would love and have a connection with that person's page.....time to contact them and go from there! Book a hair and makeup trial, to see how you like the makeup and hairstyle on yourself and for lots of other advice from your artist as well! Remember that hair and makeup is a very important part of the day everyone will have eyes on you all day, thousands of photogrpahs will be taken! So when you find the right hairstylist and make up artist for your special day, no matter what the price you pay, it is so worth it! xx

who usually pays for the bridesmaids makeup?

Hair I Come

It really depends on each bridal party! Some brides pay for their bridesmaids, some bridesmaids pay for their hair and makeup, some bridesmaids pay half of their hair and makeup! These days there are no rules! Anything goes! xx
