" Best makeup and hair stylist in London! She was an absolute joy to work with!
I wish I could give Tamara 10 stars! She is truly wonderful and I was lucky enough to secure her help on my wedding day and for our subsequent banquet celebration. Tamara helped made my mum, sister and myself look beautiful and elegant for the wedding celebrations and I couldn't be happier with the results. She was punctual and professional from the beginning to end - during the trial she was extremely easy to work with and would listen patiently to what the client wants and try her best to accommodate without compromising her own professionalism. Her understanding of creative styling, hair and makeup is outstanding! And she made notes of every detail, which I appreciate and like a lot. We received so much compliment on how we looked and I only have Tamara to thank! The makeup and hair lasted all day looking fresh and photographed so well - I can't wait to see the professional wedding photos. She was so fun to work with - and she made the whole process really enjoyable and it was lovely getting to know her bubbly personality. I would highly recommend Tamara if you are looking for professional, elegant and friendly wedding makeup and hair stylist. She is a star! Thank a million Tamara! x "
'' I wanted to say an absolutely massive thank you for doing my hair (plus bridesmaids & Mum) at my wedding in February at the Montagu Arms Hotel (20th Feb). You did a fantastic job and everyone's hair looked amazing for the entire day. In fact, one of the bridesmaids refused to take it out and the style lasted all the way through the following day!
I couldn't think of a better person to have had with us preparing that morning and you certainly calmed me down. I just can't thank you enough for everything you did from the trial all the way through to the big day!
I wish you the very best in the future, you are a star and absolutely deserve every success!
Thank you again! Lots of love, Sarah ''
''I was lucky to secure Tamara’s services for my winter wedding in 2015. 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 hair and make-up! 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 big day, she is such a thorough professional and you will be delighted with the results! ''
''Tamara did my hair and makeup on my wedding day 5th December 2015. She is very friendly, reliable, punctual, patient and does her job with a huge smile on her face. She is an absolute joy to work with.
She did create exactly what I wanted for my hair and makeup. Great attention to detail whilst my friends were singing and drinking in the room at the same time, video man kept interrupting her, she did not budge so well done! She is a perfectionist, she would not let you go until all is done in perfection. Everyone has complimented me with my make up and hair. They all said it was the best make up they have ever seen on any bride and the hairdo was stunning too.
She really is an excellent makeup artist and I highly recommend her. Don’t look any further, just book her in.
It was a pleasure knowing you and working with you Tamara. Thank you again very much for making me look amazing on my big day. All the best for your future. Xxx''
''I was so pleased to have been able to have Tamara create the finished look that I was hoping for on my wedding day. As a 52-year-old, second timer, professional woman, I wanted to look my best but not ‘mutton dressed as lamb’
or ‘overly made up’ as I normally wear discreet and subtle makeup.
Having Tamara come to the house and enjoying being at home getting ready was really lovely and I have special
memories of my grown-up children and husband to be wandering around as we all got ready over a few hours and
there was no stress at all.
I did have a trial with Tamara the week before the wedding day. What was really special was that both Helen,
my daughter, and I just loved Tamara instantly as she is such a wonderful person, we both were at ease with her immediately.
Tamara has a no-nonsense approach to her artistry, she wants to do a brilliant job and she wants you to be happy with the
end result if you are not then she will make it so that you are. She expects you to be honest with her and if you don’t like
anything - say it. You don’t have to be worried that she will be offended, she really wants you to be happy with the end result.
But she just seemed to know what would look best and just got the styling that was right for me and Helen just right. So mother and daughter were confident that on the day it would be all right and we didn’t need to worry. I was impressed by the standard of hygiene and organisation off Tamar’s products and brushes etc. and despite having A much heavier but very subtle and discreet foundation, eye makeup and eyeliner and mascara, etc. it didn’t do anything to my skin – no irritation and no watery eyes! The way that Tamara applied the foundation and blended in various tones was amazing, my complexion was flawless and radiant! Eyes and lashes were also impressive, lips were beautifully done and all colours were just right for me.
On the day of the wedding, Tamara arrived on time and got to work immediately. As she had made comprehensive notes from the trial there was no worry that there would be any surprises. My daughter had her hair and makeup done and she was delighted with the finished look. For me, the most important thing was that I felt and looked like me, admittedly on a good day, but I felt natural with a finished of elegance to the whole look, just what I wanted. My daughter looked absolutely stunning, so beautiful, I can’t wait to be the mother of the bride and for Tamara to be there again.
I would highly recommend Tamara to anyone, book her immediately and definitely have at least one trial. You will have no regrets and you will be lucky to have had the opportunity to have your hair and makeup done by someone who is undoubtedly a rising star.''
''Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful job you did on us all at the wedding. Not only was your work fantastic, but you also brought so much-needed calmness to what was otherwise a very chaotic morning! We received loads of comments on the hair and make-up and my bridesmaids (and even my dad) kept saying how wonderful you were!''
“Tamara deserves to be recognized not only for her perfect punctuality and quality of service to us on our wedding day but also of her amazing personality and friendliness that enabled us to immediately associate with her as a friend. We got married in London in September and required two makeup session, one for the sunrise morning photoshoot the day before and on the wedding day. Tamara came in both days right on time at our hotel at 2 AM and 3 AM, and the result was truly outright amazing!”
''I had the pleasure of booking Tamara for my wedding to do my hair and of my 3 bridesmaids.
Tamara is very professional, extremely talented, a very skilled artist in her field. On the day she was on time, calm and very organized. She completely understood what I wanted for my hairstyle, the trial went very well and on the day it was even better than I could have imagined, absolutely stunning and my bridesmaid's hair looked incredibly beautiful.
My hairstyle was an updo and it lasted the whole day and until the end of the day and still looked amazing. All the guests thought my hair was amazing, it was a work of art.
I highly recommend Tamara, she is absolutely wonderful at what she does and made me look absolutely stunning on the day. Thank you so much for making my day so special!''
''Tamara kindly agreed to do my hair and makeup for my wedding last August. She is extremely well organised and focused on the task. I couldn't believe how fast she was as well making 4 of us looking beautiful in just 3 hours. Not only work wise she is excellent but as a person, I can say I haven't met someone so wonderful for a long time. Charming, punctual and imaginative are just a few skills I can highlight.
My trial hair and makeup session were very informative. I knew what the plan for the big day was and how to plan my budget.
I would highly recommend her services to anyone who needs a professional makeup and hair done for a special occasion.''
''I wanted to ensure I had the perfect makeup for my wedding day & Tamara Tott came highly recommended to me. Once I looked at her website I knew she would be a perfect choice.
I used her not only for my own makeup but I also asked if she could do the makeup for my mum & 4 bridesmaids which she more than happy to do. I gave her ideas on the sort of looks we wanted, she knew exactly what I meant and was very confident with doing it which really put us all at ease.
As she had to do a total of 7 people all by herself I did worry it might be a bit rushed but she made sure she had plenty of time so we all felt relaxed and it was not at all stressful. Before she finished she checked we were all happy with our make up & touched up just before we left for the ceremony.
The makeup lasted all day & I had many comments both on the day itself & afterward when people look at my wedding photos how lovely the makeup was.
We were all really pleased with Tamara's work & would definitely recommend her to anyone that's is looking for someone to do their wedding makeup. Thanks for all your help!''
''Tamara did the hair and make-up for my bridal party and myself on my wedding day. She was professional and listened to my ideas whilst giving suggestions to elements I was unsure about.
I truly felt so beautiful on my wedding day and was very pleased to see all the ideas come to life! Most importantly, Tamara made the process as easy as possible, therefore not adding any unneeded stress. She was very punctual, got in touch throughout the whole wedding preparation, and was very easy to reach to discuss any last minute changes of plans.
I would highly recommend Tamara as a wedding make-up artist!''
I just wanted to pop you across a quick note to say thank you so much for all the effort you put in on the day and beforehand to make me look amazing. I felt gorgeous! I got so many compliments on my hair.
Really, you did brilliantly.''
''Tamara did a terrific job in getting my hair and make-up looking just as I'd hoped for on my wedding day in September 2015. I hadn't come to appreciate it in advance but after having had the joy of doing the trial I was so looking forward to seeing Tamara on the morning of my wedding. Someone who I was comfortable with, had every confidence in would do a super job and she really made those precious moments when you can just sit and relax on the morning of your wedding, a real treat. Before the trial, I had some clear ideas about what I wanted but was looking for an artist who would also bring their own expertise and suggestions. Tamara understood so well what I was after and after realising my hair ideas would not work with my hair length, Tamara was happy to try different styles until we found one that worked for my hair and that I was completely happy with. On my wedding day she arrived on time and was a calming presence to have around. She also did a great job on my mum's make-up. Looking through my wedding photos and seeing myself from every angle, I can appreciate even more Tamara's great work and it's staying power throughout the day! (I could tell her perfectionism would pay off!) I felt and looked like the best version of myself and isn't that what ever bride hopes for? Thank you so much, Tamara!''
