Hair Stylist and Make-up Artist



Distress call...MUA down!!

Posted on April 28, 2017 at 8:15 AM

Hair stylist and make-up artists in Kent are in abundance, it is a highly competitive industry to be in! However I don’t see fellow stylists as competition, yes we all have our own businesses, but we are still colleagues, we are a support network, were are there for each other!

I often get asked by brides ‘what happens if you are ill on my wedding day?’ or ‘what if something goes wrong and you can’t be there?’

While trying to usher my monsters out the door for school in January, I noticed an urgent plea on one of our forums by another make-up artist in desperate need of an additional pair of hands! I posted my number, told her to get in tough if I could help, and headed off on the school run.

Twenty minutes later, I was driving to Tesco, when a call came through…the make-up artist had been in a slight accident in the ice and was going to be late and needed someone to assist. The thought of a bride left stranded on her wedding day is every MUA’s worst nightmare, so I swung the car around at the next roundabout and headed home to collect my kit. With my head in work mode, but my appearance screaming ‘mummy duties’ (I confess, I did slap on a little foundation and concealer when I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror heading out the door…thank god it wasn’t one of my unrealistic ‘yes I can get away with dry shampoo’ days!), I called my best friend and apologised or having to cancel our lunch plans and arrived at one of my favourite locations, Cooling Castle Barn, at 9.15am ready to report for duty.

This was the day I had the pleasure of meeting the very beautiful bride, Karen, her mum, and her four gorgeous bridesmaids, sisters Emma and Gemma, and her daughters, Lucy and Isabel. From the outset I was made to feel extremely welcome, after a quick chat with Karen about theme of the wedding and the styles they were after we set to work. While adding the finishing touches to the first hair style the MUA arrived and after preparing the brides hair she got to work on the make-up. Together we worked as a team (I didn’t mention that I had also never met the MUA before either!) to created stunning transformations for the whole bridal party.

The youngest bridesmaid was an extremely quiet little thing who spent most the morning munching her way through the beautiful spread provided by the venue, barely uttering two words…that was until it was her turn to sit in the chair!! I think Isabel and I covered every topic going, from favourite foods and colours, to what would you prefer as a pet… A fire breathing dragon? Or a dragon that sprayed water? This neither of us could agree on so decided given the choice we would have both dragons!!

This was my first wedding of 2017, and not one I was expecting either, but it was a fabulous start to the new year and I was extremely honoured to play a part in their special day! Many congratulations to Karen and Lee, the new Mr and Mrs Wagstaff. I wish you a life time of health and happiness, making beautiful memories with your little family.

A special thank you to Karen and Lee, and more importantly Steve of Duntons Photography for allowing me use the stunning images provided.
