    I cannot recommend Holly highly enough - she did such an amazing job for our wedding and made everyone look stunning. The bridesmaids were delighted with their hair and I felt a million dollars. Holly will work with you to make sure you 100% happy and was happy to try different styles until we found the right one. Thank you Holly!

    "Holly of Oxford Wedding Hair & Makeup is incredible! I recommend her to any Bride looking for an individual, classy, beautiful look for their big day! She did my hair & make-up for my wedding in August 2016. Holly is a lovely person, who makes you feel completely at ease as soon as you meet her. She has incredible knowledge of both hair and make-up. She created an absolutely stunning look for my big day, which captured exactly what I wanted. I have very fine hair and she made is look full & thick with no extensions. She fused my ideas and her extensive knowledge to create something really special. I had so many compliments on the day, and after as people have seen the photographs. My hair & make-up stayed flawless all day, even with a few tears!

    Holly has done my hair for the last 2 years since I moved back to Oxford from London. Obviously I was nervous about finding a new stylist, but I needn't have worried. Holly is an excellent colourist and stylist and always makes me feel comfortable...even though I'm not a big fan of having my hair done. Holly was the obvious choice to do my own and my bridesmaids hair for my wedding and she absolutely nailed it. We had many, many compliments on the 'do's' and she was a joy to have around as we got ready. Definitely recommend!

  • Miranda Chubb​

    Holly did such a wonderful job on the hair and make up for my wedding! It was just what I wanted and I had so many compliments on both my amazing hair and make up from the guests throughout the day. I am so grateful to Holly for doing such a perfect job on my special day! Holly was a really pleasure to have around on the morning of the wedding and also was very professional and clearly very skilled. I found the trial make-up and hair session invaluable and Holly's advice and guidance very helpful. I highly recommend their services.

  • Alexandra Kholwadia
