'Nicola was booked to work with me on a location shoot for XO Fashion Studio.  We had a very pressured day with multiple style changes and a short time in which to complete.  Luckily, Nicola was an experienced MUA who absolutely got the looks we needed. She was perfect in her communication and played a major part in the success of the shoot.  I would have no hesitation in booking Nicola again or recommending her to you for your shoot or wedding.  She is a first rate make-up artist and a lovely person.'  Simon Fairclough  | Fashion Photographer
'GingerBread was fortunate to work with Nicola at the Fashion International/TOPMODEL show in London.  As a millinery catwalk, our pieces require a set of technically demanding and highly customised hair and make-up changes to be made in very short timescales.  Nicola, as part of the hair and make-up team, worked with ourselves and senior fashion stylists to provide a professional and extremely thorough service which we were proud to associate with our headwear.  We would very happily work with Nicola again in the future.'  Chris Colquitt |  GingerBreadHats.co.uk
WEDDING INDUSTRY AWARDS - A heart felt thank you to all my lovely brides for taking the time to vote for me xxx / here's a few of the lovely comments that got me to the finals.
Nicola really understood exactly what I was after and truly listened.  She succeeded in making me feel beautiful without being 'too made up'.  I wanted to feel like me on my wedding day and not like I was trying to be something i'm not.  I felt incredible and will be forever thankful to Nicola for making me feel so beautiful.
I wanted a stylist who could master my hair and makeup as an overall 'look' and I hit the jackpot with Nicola.  She is professional and a perfectionist.  She is also incredibly friendly and she herself has a great sense of style.
Nicola is first class.  She is an absolute pleasure and was incredible at listening to my ideas and recreating them on my wedding day... 
Nicola listened to what I wanted and delivered it perfectly,  I have never felt so beautiful.  Her communication was great and she wasn't flustered at all when I decided to totally change what hairstyle I wanted AFTER the trial and just weeks before the wedding.  I would highly reccommend her.
Nicola is clearly knowledgeable and very professional in her approach.
Nicola did a perfect job giving me the look I wanted for my wedding. We had an extensive trial that was fun.  On the wedding day she arrived on time and was very calm and relaxed.
Nicola was an absolute joy. She managed to make this exhausted bride look better than human.
I really appreciated the flexibility in Nicola's approach which is hard to come by...
She was lovely on the phone and could not have been more helpful during the planning process.  She was a pleasure to be around on the day, keeping me and everyone else calm and relaxed.
Nicola was extremely patient taking the time to discuss and practice different styles as well as looking for pinterest images outside of my trial appointment.  She was professional throughout but was always very down to earth and amicable.  On the day she was extremely focussed whilst allowing for flexibility for me to enjoy the morning with my family and friends.
Her communication was excellent, especially in view of the fact that I was organising the wedding from South Africa!
I booked Nicola because I liked her response time and I loved my trial hair and makeup.  I would recommend her to anyone!
'A huge thank you for all your hard work on our wedding day at Lower Grenofen.  You did such a beautiful job. I went to quite a few weddings this year and was in the bridal party with many of my bridesmaids having our hair and makeup done. We all agreed that you did the best job of all.  You really listened to what we wanted and captured the image perfectly.  You helped to make me feel like the most beautiful bride and I can't thank you enough for the confidence you gave me on the day.  It was lovely meeting you, love Alena xxx, London
