Thank you so much for what you did on my special day! My hair stayed in all day and came out at night without the use of conditioner! I loved it and it was a pleasure to meet you.  Thanks for saving the day last minute.x

Herts, 2015

I just wanted to say a big thank you to Kate for the absolutely stunning hair she created for me and my bridesmaids on my wedding. Classic up do's that looked stylish and glamorous. Adapting my hair slightly (post trial, after I had dyed it slightly darker) to give it shape and texture. Your ability to work with short hair to make it look special was amazing. Plus you were a hit with the young flower girls. 

Again, thank you so much - I only wish I could have you do my hair everyday.

Redbourn, Herts, 2014


Katie did my hair and make up for my wedding in March 2014, along with my four bridesmaids. We met Katie for a trial about a month before and she listened thoroughly to my ideas and used her expertise to make my ideas a reality. She made us feel at ease with her friendly and relaxed yet professional manner and I was confident I had made the right decision for my hair and make up. Our hair and make up lasted all day and we all looked amazing. Thank you so much and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Katie to anyone!

Katie, Thank you so much for doing my bridal hair and makeup and my bridesmaids hair and makeup, I loved it! 

Thank you for being so understanding about having to leave you in the room to clear up as I jumped in a cab! 

Best wishes, Emma Staves. 2014 


I couldn't recommend Katie more. From first communication, to the day itself, Katie was responsive and professional, but also offered a completely personal and friendly service. I went to the trial with too many ideas to choose from, but Katie knew exactly what to do. She spoke through every part of the trial, and made sure I was happy. On the day itself, Katie managed to remain calm in a mad house of girls getting ready (plus photographer and videographer)! My mum looked fantastic and was so pleased with her hair and make up which lasted all day. The girls also looked stunning. Katie was great when I asked for a couple of changes to my planned hair on the day and through many happy tears, and a tractor ride in the wind, my hair and make up stayed put all day long.

I can't thank Katie enough!"   Hitchin, Herts.  2014


"Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job for me, my bridesmaids, and my Mum at our wedding recently. You were very relaxed yet professional from the word go, taking the time to discuss our hair and make up options and making suggestions, which put us all at ease. I got so many comments about how lovely my hair looked throughout the day, and my make up lasted the whole time. You were really calm on the morning of the wedding, despite having a lot to do. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you to anyone, I can’t thank you enough!" 

Lizzy, St. Albans, Herts, 2014.


"Katie offers such a personal touch to your hair and make-up experience. As soon as I met her, she immediately put me and my bridal party at ease. Katie took the time to listen to what we wanted and took the time to explain what she was doing and why. Katie was brilliant on my wedding day, she was as cool as a cucumber and did an absolutely fantastic job with every one of us. I was so incredibly impressed at my hair and make up and it far surpassed any expectations I had. I would definitely recommend Katie for any event -she is well worth the money, and offers such a friendly and professional service. Thank you Katie" Claire, Berkshire, April, 2014


Firstly I want to say a massive thank you for all your hard work in the run up to and on my wedding day!

You really listened to what I wanted and took so much time to listen and understand my vision for my hair and makeup. 

You were always so approachable, calm, friendly and professional.

My hair was truly beautiful – I have had endless comments about it.

My makeup was exactly as I had wanted – pure and natural, it lasted all day.  My bridesmaids looked beautiful.  You and Jo managed to make them have similar yet unique styles which worked perfectly with their dresses. 

I can’t recommend you enough, your creative skills along with your personal touch meant that I got everything I wanted and more for my hair and makeup. 

Thank goodness I found you – you outshone all the others by a mile!

Love Mrs

‘’Katie Dear was professional and friendly from the moment I met her. She listened to what I and the bridesmaids wanted and made sure we were happy. We had a lot of fun the morning of the wedding getting ready and all of my girls loved having their turn. My Hair and make up lasted all day and everyone said how nice my hair was, I was so pleased. Katie also did my mums hair and it looked fantastic. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Katie to other wedding party’s in the future.’’ Carly xx

"Katie Dear provided me and my bridal party with a professional, friendly and beautiful service from start to finish.  From the moment I met her I knew I wanted her to do the hair and make up for my wedding as her relaxed and intuitive attitude put me at ease straight away.  Most of all she listened to what we all wanted and was able to create the perfect look for each of us.  The overall theme of our wedding was informal and natural, and Katie incorporated not only that theme but also the individual styles of each of the seven girls into their hair and make up designs.  Everyone looked truly beautiful and I couldn't possibly have asked for anything more."  Ria, London Colney, Herts.

"I wanted to feel like I belonged in Hollywood on my wedding day but I also wanted to look like me. Katie delivered on both counts and as she was willing to work from my home (bedroom!) getting ready was relaxed and fun. By the time I left to get married Katie felt like part of the family.  Lorna" xxx, South London

"Thank you to the genius that is Katie Dear....I will be recommending you 'til the cows come home.....Wedding hair and make up was period drama perfection.....I'm so glad I found you." xx Katie Castley, Hertfordshire

 "Katie was fantastic on my wedding day; professional and friendly, she put me and my bridesmaids at ease and allowed us to have fun whilst making us all look amazing!  The makeup lasted all day (despite the tears) and I had so many complements about my hairstyle.  She really took notice of the styles I liked and had great suggestions to make me look and feel fantastic on my big day.  I would highly recommend to other brides!" JO SWEENEY, DEVON

 "Thank you soooooooooo much for the amazing hair and make up you did for my mum, Bridesmaids and me.  Everyone commented on how classic and beautiful we looked which was exactly the style we were going for.  It has been so nice being able to talk to you throughout the process and you made my day relaxed and amazing.... I know its cliche, but I really did feel like a million dollars!!!  All my bridesmaids loved having their styles. You were just awesome with everyone so thank you.  Thank you so, so much you made our special day AWESOME!!  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you."   Jenni Hancock. XX,  Brighton.


 "I wasn't 100% sure on how to have my hair and make-up on the day but Katie took the time to talk through the ideas I had and made suggestions during my trial and I was more than happy with the results. I had two bridesmaids with particularly thick hair but Katie still managed to keep to the style I had in mind and they all looked beautiful. I tried the airbrush make-up and despite many tears and kisses throughout the day, it remained completely intact and I was so pleased with the finish. Thank you Katie!"         Christina Gatcliffe, Essex


' Katie, thank you so much for your amazing work, I can't believe how incredible I looked on my wedding day, the results were stunning. My bridesmaids and mum were thrilled with your work and in a very short period of time you quickly understood their likes and dislikes and produced fantastic results. I still can't believe how FAB I looked on the day, and I had so many comments from my friends about having never seen me look so glam; a huge credit to your talents. So pleased that you were looking after me and my team on the day.' Emma, Cambridge.


"Katie was absolutely amazing.  She made me look so natural yet glamorous at the same time (how great was the airbrush!).  Our day started at stupid hours in London and Katie volunteered to turn up early, which was music to a bride's ears.  With my long thick hair and my bridesmaids one with side-shaven hair and the other with thick curly short hair, she created three incredible styles.  My mom got so excited watching us getting ready that she also had her make-up done by Katie at the last minute.  Totally unfazed from being bombarded with our beauty questions in a manic house, Katie just worked her magic like a true professional.  Our hair and make up stayed up and intact, even after all the kisses, tears and dancing.  And surprisingly, the make-up felt so light that I almost forgot I was wearing make-up.  Not to mention, Katie is so smiley and full of energy, even at 6am! 

Thank you so much Katie, for your fantastic work and for being so accommodating with our constant change of plans.  I will recommend you to all my friends!". Judy, London.
