"WOW ....What an amazing job you did on everyone's hair for our wedding day. We could not be happier with the results. Having the hair trials was a massive benefit and is highly recommended as we could all look at what we thought suited everyone best and start from there. Definitely saved time on the morning of the wedding knowing who was having what done. Nothing was too much trouble, even having a couple of extra heads to do on the day. Thank you so so much, if only we could do it again!"
"Last weekend, Claire did my wedding hair and make-up, my three bridesmaids’ hair and my Mum’s hair and make-up. She did the most fantastic job - everyone looked fabulous! Claire was friendly, professional and nothing was too much trouble. She totally put us at ease and was flexible to our requirements. I would 100% recommend Claire."
"I worked alongside Claire at a Bridal photo shoot yesterday, I was doing makeup, she created some beautiful hairstyles for the brides, a mix of modern and classical styles. I would definitely recommend her to brides looking for hairstyling and hope to work creating beautiful looks with Claire again soon!"

"Wow! I was blown away with how amazing Claire made me look and feel on my wedding day yesterday! My bridesmaids hair was really gorgeous and I really loved the up do she created for me. I felt like she really listened to what I was trying to explain and took everything on board. She was lovely from the moment we met and I couldn't recommend her more. Thank you so much Claire for everything xx"
"Claire Hartley did the most fantastic job on the morning of my wedding! I came to Claire for my trial with my Nan’s & Mum’s headdress which was 63years old. I wanted to modernised the look but still incorporate their headdress, Claire mastered this and my hair looked amazing and was exactly what I wanted for my special day. My bridesmaids and Mum’s Hair also looked fab on the day!!"
"I had the pleasure of having Claire do my hair for a bridal shoot and it was absolutely amazing, the detail that went into it and the fact that she managed to do four completely different hairstyles on all the models that just worked so well with their dresses and the head pieces supplied as well was just incredible. Not only is Claire incredibly skilled in her work but she’s also such a lovely lady, with a great personality that just lights up the room and I cannot wait to work with her again more in the future. Thank you again so much!!"
"Absolutely LOVED my hair style that Claire created where I was a bridesmaid at a recent wedding! I don’t have the longest hair so wasn’t sure if ‘the look’ I had chosen could be done, but after a few creative tweaks due to the limitations of my hair length Claire nailed it and it looked awesome! I would highly recommend using Claire and will definitely be seeing her again for my next up do x"
"Claire did an absolutely fantastic job on mine and my bridesmaids hair! She really went above and beyond. I went to her with a very specific style in mind for myself and she nailed it first time at my hair trial. She was really good at adapting to a few last minute changes on the day and managed to make all the bridesmaids look similar even though she had to work with quite a few different lengths! I would 100% recommend her!"
"I worked with Claire on a photoshoot and she is just amazing! The styles she did on each of the 4 models were beautiful, stylish and all very different, she has an eye for knowing what works well for for each person. I highly recommend Claire to all brides for their day."

"Claire recently styled the hair of 5 Bridesmaids and me for my wedding on the 4th May in St Margaret's Bay, Deal. Claire was incredible! Not only did she make us feel so relaxed on the day, she was also brilliant leading up to the day, travelling for an hour to do a trial for myself and two bridesmaids and really helpful with ideas/inspiration. Claire made us feel really reassured and is such a lovely person - it was a pleasure having Claire in the busy house on my wedding day! Our hair stayed perfectly in place all day (and we were dancing so much) and we all had so many compliments about how lovely our hair looked. Can't thank Claire enough! We had a really early start (6am!) but nothing was too much - would highly, highly recommend Claire!"
"Claire was brilliant. We wanted a mixture of blow drys and soft updos for our friend’s wedding. Claire arrived fully equipped and on time. She was friendly and professional. She had some ideas and enjoyed looking at some images we shared with her for ideas. We were all really pleased with the results which were, as asked, gentle and softly textured hair, not too neat, cool plaits and twists. Really lovely and will definitely use again!"
"I highly recommend Claire, she recently did a wonderful job of my wedding hair and make-up, and for my bridesmaid, and my mum they both looked beautiful. She is so professional and friendly which made us all feel so relaxed right up until the service.
Thank you so much Claire, best wishes Maria xx"
"Cannot recommend Claire enough! She was absolutely perfect from start to finish! She understood my boho brief perfectly and after letting her have pretty much free reign on my bridesmaids their hair looked absolutely stunning!! For mine I knew I wanted a plait crown but wasn’t sure it would work without showing my extensions but Claire did such an amazing job and I absolutely loved it. It even withstood the fairground we had at the wedding!
Claire is so talented and also the most lovely person, I feel honoured to have had her as part of our big day. I can not recommend enough and would like to say another big big thank you to her for making us all look and feel like princesses! X"
"Claire did my hair and makeup for my wedding in early August, and I could not have been happier. She was absolutely perfect during my trial - making me feel at ease, and discussing with me my hair ideas and makeup insecurities. On the wedding day, she was absolutely brilliant. Everyone complimented my hair and makeup, saying how it was "me" but fancier! I will be forever grateful. She also did my mum's hair, my sister's makeup and my brother's "tidy up". She was professional but friendly and kind. I would definitely recommend her for anyone's hair and makeup needs! Thank you"
"I found Claire on the internet for my mother of the groom hair and makeup styling. Thank you Claire for an amazing result. Everyone commented on my beautiful look, you made me feel at ease and were very professional and friendly. I would highly recommend Claire's hair styling and make up service for anyone who wants to look stunning on their special day."
"Claire did a great job on my hair and make up for my wedding. It survived the heat and lasted all day. Most importantly, Claire is easy to talk to and contributed to creating a calm morning for me. Thank you!"
"Claire did such an amazing job on my hair, and my four bridesmaids. I was so pleased with the results, it was exactly what I wanted! I was really worried I wouldn't get what I wanted for my wedding hair but she did it perfectly! She is also lovely on a personal level, so it was great to have her a part of our day. Thank you so so much!! It takes such a weight off to know your hair looks great and will stay in place all day (which it did!) hehe"
Claire was amazing on my wedding day, you made us feel at ease and you created beautiful hair up that lasted till the next day! I can’t thank you enough. x
Claire did hair for 6 of us (3 of which were kids!) and I couldn’t have been happier she was so patient with the girls! Everyone's hair looked perfect right through until the end of the night. I would highly recommend
Claire was amazing throughout my experience with her. She communicated so well with me throughout the planning stages and booked me in for a trial with her. The trial was fantastic; she gave lots of different options and suggestions for me. On the big day itself, Claire was such a calming presence. She did mine, my sister and my mum’s hair beautifully and it stayed in place the whole day. She is such a professional but friendly person and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her 100%!
Claire made my wedding hair experience amazing!! I loved that she took on what I said and made my dream hair even better than I imagined. My mum and bridesmaids also looked amazing and loved their hair too. I even woke up the next morning with it all intact! Couldn’t recommend more, she is also so lovely and easy to talk too x
As others may have experienced recently, I unfortunately had to postpone my wedding due to the coronavirus. I had booked Claire to do my bridal hair, however, Claire unfortunately was already booked for my new date. Although Claire hasn’t done my hair, I wanted to write a review about my experience with the booking and her handling the cancellation.
From the first email, Claire was quick to reply, professional, friendly and accommodating (I needed two stylists due to numbers / timing) which Claire arranged promptly. Her work is amazing, and from her social media pages it’s clear that she is experienced in creating beautiful styles. When cancelling, Claire was very understanding about this, and gave me a full refund on my deposit, as this was outside my control, something which I was very grateful for. If ever I need my hair doing again for another occasion I would not hesitate to contact Claire.
