''I was lucky to secure Tamara’s services for my wedding''
I work for a cosmetics company so am very fussy and particular about my products and hair. I met Tamara for a couple of trials before the big day. On the wedding day itself, Tamara did the most incredible job, I even did a little dance of delight when I saw my wedding hair and makeup! It far exceeded any expectations I had and her talent ensured I felt at my most confident for what is a nerve-wracking day, especially for the bride who has all the focus on her! Tamara was an absolute pleasure on the day, working with an array of hair and beauty needs from different hair types, skin tones and one rather overwhelmed 3 year old flower girl. I would have no hesitation to recommend Tamara for your wedding day, she is such a thorough professional and you will be delighted with the results! ''
