Nicole was a fantastic communicator - before the day, she was always quick and happy to answer any of my questions. She accommodated a last second change of date due to a snap lockdown, and on the day was right on time. Her work was absolutely stunning. She completely nailed the more natural look I was going for, and the makeup and hair were so comfortable to wear - I have sensitive skin and am not accustomed to elaborate hairstyles, but the natural products she used felt like I wasn't wearing anything at all, so I could just relax and enjoy the day. All of my crew were thrilled with her work, and we all got so many compliments. Nicole really made me feel like a bride, for which she has my eternal thanks - couldn't recommend her more highly.

Nicole is extremely professional and a master at her craft. She is knowledgeable, takes extreme pride in her work and was lovely, warm and genuine. This was reflected in her intricately gorgeous hair design for myself, my bridesmaids and mother in February 2020. Our makeup was natural but with sophisticated flare and the best part was that the products Nicole used stood the test of a very humid February day but were gentle on my sensitive skin. I would recommend Nicole over and over again!

What can I say? Nicole is amazing and you will not regret booking her for your day. She did my older sister's wedding, my sister-in-law's wedding and most recently, mine. I was a really nervous, self-conscious bride but Nicole put me at ease and made me feel so special. My make-up was spot on. She covered up my hyper-pigmentation and chose a colour to perfectly suit my skin tone. Honestly, the make-up was beautiful. I asked her to braid my fine, delicate, thin hair and it looked fantastic. On the day of the trial, she made me feel so good - you won't regret having a trial done, and then on the day, I knew exactly what to expect. She did all of the hair and makeup in my bridal party too and they were all rapt with her work. Having cruelty-free, vegan products was really important to me but if you put that aside, she is so talented and good at her job. Pricing was reasonable and well-worth it. Thank you Nicole! We loved chatting with you on the day and I will continue to recommend you to family and friends! xo

Nicole made me feel like royalty for my wedding. Understood and provided exactly what I wanted. Used good quality and lasting products. She is friendly to deal with and shows skill and care in her work. Have already recommended her to friends, and they were pleased with her too.

Nicole was amazing!! I was so in love with my hair and she gave me exactly what I hoped for. She did an amazing job on my bridesmaids too, giving each of them a unique hair look that they adored. She has a calm presence on the day and helped us so much, being flexible as we coordinated between makeup artists as well. And of course, being vegan and cruelty free is so important and let me breathe easy knowing I didn’t have to check brands myself. Highly recommended!! <3

Nicole was highly recommended by a close family friend and certainly lived up to her reputation - her experience and talent were both evident straight away, from the trial hair styling session for my wedding. She created a look I was comfortable with and understood what would suit and work well with my hair. Her techniques are incredible and something I've never experienced before. I happily proceeded with booking Nicole for hair styling for my wedding for myself and my bridal party (having already engaged a make up artist before finding Nicole) and we were all delighted with her work and our looks on the day. Nicole was easy to work with, accommodating, confident and relaxed and very professional and COVID friendly, in addition to using cruelty free and natural / organic products. I can highly recommend Nicole!

Nicole did an incredible job with my wedding hair and make-up! She was really accommodating and drove out to my venue, which was a while out of Melbourne, and listened to exactly what I wanted with my make-up. She is amazingly talented and made me feel so beautiful! Thank you so much Nicole!!

Nicole is an extremely talented hair and makeup artist. Having cruelty free products was incredibly important to me and Nicole made it clear that no sacrifice is necessary to achieve this. I showed her a number of reference photos and she created a look that felt unique and comfortable. She was also able to coordinate hair and makeup for 11 individuals and found another cruelty free artist to work with. We were in a rush to finish in order to perform two ceremonies and despite the time restraints and number of people, Nicole's work was flawless. In addition, members of my family who have particularly sensitive skin had no issues with the products used on their face or hair. I highly recommend working with her.

Having to cancel and reschedule a wedding due to COVID is extremely challenging. I feel really blessed to have worked with Nicole throughout the whole process and couldn't be happier with how I looked and felt on the day! Nicole is a real pleasure to deal with, and I highly recommend her services.

Nicole is amazing!! She is professional, friendly, hygienic and really easy to work with, particularly with COVID. Not only that, her hair and makeup is gorgeous. I highly recommend her!

Nicole was absolutely wonderful on our wedding day. She was friendly, conversational and professional. Alongside her commitment to cruelty-free products, she was equally committed to completing my make-up and hair in a way that was COVID safe. I felt so thrilled to embrace my curls for my wedding, and Nicole gave me nothing but confidence that they would look beautiful the whole day (which they did!) I recommend Nicole without hesitation.

Nicole is AMAZING! She did mine and my bridal party of 2 plus my sister's hair and makeup. The flawless products she uses last so long and looks absolutely natural. Some makeup for weddings can look caked on and unnatural, but Nicole has a skill and product selection that stunning in photos and reflection. I would not use anyone else.

Nicole is a very talented makeup artist and hairstyle, she did my makeup on the my wedding day, and made it looks so natural and gentle as I wanted, just LOVE that. I have very thick curly hair , and I was worried about my hair for my wedding, after meeting Nicole for a haircut, I knew that she is the BEST person to make my hair looks perfect for my wedding. I was so happy and satisfied by my hair and makeup, it definitely helped me enjoying my special day, knowing I love my hair and makeup.

Nicole is everything you want in a hair and makeup artist, she is friendly, warm and most of all highly experienced in bringing to life what you want. She will listen to you and help you make the right choices for whatever the special occasion is. The products she uses are of high quality and best of all cruelty free. As someone who doesn’t wear makeup often and can sometimes have sensitive skin, I was pleased that the makeup did not feel heavy and I had no irritation.

Nicole did both my hair & make-up on the day & she was absolutely excellent. Firstly, I loved that her products were all vegan & cruelty free. Secondly, I'm not someone who generally wears much make-up at all & I was looking for a warm, and very natural look. Nicole gave me the exact look that I wanted & I could not have been happier. Between the hair & make-up trial and the morning of the wedding I made several changes to what I was after & she met them perfectly. Nicole is an experienced professional & it really shows in her work.

Nicole is a talented hair and make-up artist. She is professional and excellent to communicate with. Her passion and enthusiasm is infectious. I share her passion for cruelty-free make-up and this initially drew me to her website. Nicole did my bridal hair and make-up and bridal party of 4, our hair and make-up was immaculate, we couldn't be happier.

Nicole is an ethical, vegan and cruelty free hair and makeup artist. I did not want any animals to have suffered for our wedding. Bubbly, with a wealth of experience (she used to do hair and makeup for Tina Arena!), I highly recommend Nicole.

Nicole was fantastic! She was easygoing and excellent to work with. She is very passionate about cruelty-free make up, something we all appreciated. My mother, my bridesmaids and I were all after natural looks and it was perfect. High recommend.

Nicole is one of the only cruelty free make up artists in the southern hemisphere. Not only is she fiercely passionate about what she does, she's also phenomenally talented. I felt so beautiful and my husband loved that I looked like a sparkly version of me.

Nicole was a breeze to work with! She gave all my girls the hair and make up looks that suited each of us, keeping it natural and using all cruelty free products! I would certainly recommend Nicole for anyone wanted a natural, soft look using high quality products.

I booked Nicole Groch for my hair and make up, as well as my mums, and we were both blown away by everything. I have had a few make up trials leading up to my wedding and Nicole was by far a stand out from everyone else on the market. She is not only extremely talented at what she does, but also a really lovely person to hang out with on the morning of your wedding. My make up lasted for over 10 hours in 35 degree heat (outdoor wedding), and i was receiving complements all night. I would without a doubt recommend Nicole Groch to anyone who needs a makeup and hair artist for any occasion!

Nicole did an absolutely amazing job with the make-up for my wedding. She is very talented, professional and easy-going. My mom and the bridesmaids were thrilled with their make-up. It was 10/10, would definitely recommend Nicole for your wedding make-up!

Nicole Groch did hair and makeup for myself, my bridesmaids, the mother of the bride and mother of the groom. Nicole has such a bubbly and loving nature and the girls looked stunning with flawless makeup and gorgeous hair that lasted all day and night. Thank you so much Nicole!

Nicole is an absolute artist! My hair and make up on my wedding day was perfect thanks to Nicole. She also did my bridesmaid's and mother's hair and make up and they all looked stunning. Friends commented that they wished they'd found Nicole for their own wedding and a few friends who have upcoming weddings have asked me for Nicole's contact details. Nicole is very experienced, professional and a lovely person to have around and get ready with on your wedding day.

Nicole has amazing talent! From the moment we met, I knew I was in exceptional hands. Nicole did the hair and make up for myself (bride), my three bridesmaids and the mother of the bride. I was impressed with Nicole's determination to ensure our hair and make up was absolutely perfect. No hair out of place and our make up was both natural and flawless. If you're looking for a hair and make up artist who is affordable and who cares about the end result as much as you do, then Nicole is the perfect hair and make up artist for you. She is truly amazing at what she does! Thank you so much Nicole!

Nicole was fabulous. I booked her in for my wedding because I was looking for a makeup artist who specialised in natural and toxin-free products for sensitive skin. Her products are wonderful and lasted as well as any other mainstream make-up I have tried, without the irritation. She was also fabulous with our hair-do's and really listened to what we were after with our styles. Would definitely use her again!

Nicole was so fantastic to have around on the day - bubbly, fun and super professional. She listened carefully to all my preferences and the result was above and beyond my expectations. The makeup was flawless and so light that I hardly noticed I was wearing it.

Nicole Groch did a fabulous job on my hair for my wedding. I have never loved a hair style so much (and I get my hair styled all the time), and obviously your wedding day is the day you want to be totally confident with your hair stylist. In addition, she has a lovely manner and was a pleasure to deal with (in terms of payments, organising trials etc). Loved loved loved my hair, thank you.

Nicole was such a pleasure to meet, and an absolute professional in makeup. I loved the products she used, and felt very comfortable all day. She listened to what I asked for, as well as the bridesmaids, who all also felt she did a beautiful job - impressive for a group of women who really don't love wearing a lot of makeup! I would certainly recommend Nicole.

Nicole did both mine and my mum's hair on the day of my wedding. She did an amazing job and really understood what I wanted when I asked for "boho bride". Nicole was a lovely presence, very warm and full of life and really helped to calm nerves. My mum was especially worried about her hair as she never wears make up or makes an effort with hair but Nicole completely transferred her and made her look 10 years younger!

Nicole did an amazing job doing hair and make up for my wedding.She was so relaxed and easy to work with, gave me the "natural look" I asked for and was an absolute pleasure to have around.

Nicole was lovely, and did a great job with my makeup and slightly left of field wedding hairstyle. Some of the less forthright members of my bridal party ended up with heavier makeup than they would have liked, but that's just a question of communication, really. Thanks Nicole!

It was important to me to have a stylist who was able to use vegan products, and it just so happens Nicole fit the bill, AND she works with Choose Cruelty Free. The work she did was perfect, even though I asked for a particularly elaborate and unusual hairstyle.

Nicole did a brilliant job of hair and makeup for my self and my 5 bridesmaids. The makeup wasnt too heavy and looked natural and lasted all night and so did the hair. I would definitely recommend her for any wedding.

Nicole did a great job of both my hair and make-up. She was very clear about the pricing from the start. She works well under pressure . I had a trial before and the final day was the same as the result. The make-up was very natural and not overdone.

Nicole made my wedding day even more special by being such a professional and making my mum, my 3 bridesmaids and me look so beautiful. She did our hair as well so to have everything done by the same person at home was brilliant and super easy!

Nicole was very professional as was the make-up & hair she did for my special day. The make-up lasted throughout the duration of the Wedding & reception and did not feel as though it was heavy on my face. Highly recommend her work as I already have to my friends.

Nicole makeup was so natural and beautiful, and was exactly what I needed as my husband prefer me with no make up at all :) The make up Nicole is using feels so nice on your skin, that you hardly remember you are wearing any.
