Laura is an multi-award winning bridal hair and make up artist with many years of experience in the wedding & beauty industry. Laura is extremely creative and a perfectionist when it comes to bridal hair & make-up. Laura along with her senior stylist/MUA Andrea, are able to cover most areas in the West Midlands offering a mobile service either at your home or venue on your wedding day, so no trips out to a salon - just a nice relaxing experience for you & your bridal party! 

We also offer a variety of bridal beauty treatments at the Laura Holness Bridal cosmetology salon, which are available to pre-book in preparation for your wedding day. To add to her credentials, Laura is also professionally trained in floral design, specialising in bespoke bouquets & floral centrepieces (offered as a combined service along side bridal hair & make up). 

H A I R  S T Y L I N G

I love creating many diverse looks from vintage hair to more contemporary styles. Whether you are looking for a classic bridal up-do or glamorous curls with lots of volume, I can create the perfect style to suit you and your bridal party. My goal is to make every brides hair look beautiful, voluminous and full by using a range of techniques and tricks I have developed over time.

M A K E  U P

My aim is to listen to your likes and dislikes carefully whilst making useful suggestions in order to achieve a look that will benefit your skin type and overall style. Rather then changing your look completely, my Job is to enhance your natural beauty to ensure you look and feel your absolute best on your wedding day. I work with a range of make up brands to achieve a youthful and classy glow that will look timeless and elegant on your wedding photos.

I am also professionally trained in floral design and offer this bespoke additional service along side bridal hair and make up exclusively to all my brides. Feel free to have a look through my galleries and testimonials or contact me if you have any questions leading up to your special day!

Trials are usually carried out at our cosmetology salons based in Kingswinford or Penn in the West Midands (on Friday's). At the start of the trial, we will discuss your wedding hair & make up ideas. I encourage clients to prepare some photos/examples for both hair & makeup ready for the trial. Most brides want to look like an enhanced version of themselves on their wedding day rather than a completely different person, so we will take into account what you normally do with your make-up. 

Choosing your wedding hair & make up is just as important as choosing your dress; It completes the whole look, therefore a pre-wedding trial is a must as it is important to get the look right and to also ensure everything wears well on your skin. Once you are happy with your look, I will take photos to accompany my notes so it is easy to recreate your chosen look on the big day.  We will also talk through the logistics & timing for the wedding morning. If there are time restraints or your wedding party exceeds around 5-6 people for both hair and make up, we will discuss the possibility of including an assistant artist to help on the wedding morning (additional charges apply).  Trials are usually recommended at least three months before your wedding day if possible.

T H E  W E D D I N G  D A Y

On the day, your stylist will arrive at your chosen venue and set up ready to start in the order most convenient for everyone. Usually it will depend on how you are having your hair as to whether makeup is applied first but this can be discussed at your trial. Hair is best to work with when freshly washed and dried (either the night before or in the morning is fine). If you own a hot hair appliance, we recommend you lightly go through the hair after washing in prepatration for styling which will help ensure a smoother finish.

Try to avoid mousse, heavy conditioners or products that will weigh your hair down. Please moisturise your face with a (light) moisturiser that you are comfortable wearing, I will then use a primer suitable for your skin before we start applying make up. 

Please note: Usually a minimum of 3-4 people are required to book a Friday/Saturday or Sunday wedding and deposits to save dates are non-refundable. Travel costs may apply depending on distance.

H a i r  E x t e n s i o n s

If you have short or fine hair and you are worried about whether you can achieve the hair style you really want, then I can supply you with hair extensions. Hair extensions are a great way to add volume, length and thickness to your hair for your wedding. All hair extensions we supply are:

100% Human hair (Reusable)

Clip in & out

Blends with your natural hair

Comfortable & light weight 

Supplied & fitted

Suitable for updo's 

Available in all colours, lengths & volume

With your order you will receive a free colour match, free application and styling. Please enquire if you would like to order your extensions in time for your trial or wedding day.
