Claire is truly amazing at what she does. I first met Claire at a local wedding fair in 2018 and instantly fell in love with her style and creations. From there she became my regular hair dresser, cuts, colours, you name it!
Not only has she been amazing and supportive with all the changes to our wedding due to COVID-19 but when it did happen with 3 days notice, she was right on hand to be there for our special day, and made me feel the most beautiful I have ever felt. Claire has such a relaxing and friendly presence and bought some excitement back into what had been a very uncertain time. I truly believe I went in search of a wedding supplier and came out with a friend!
Claire’s work is exceptional. I could not have asked for more on my wedding day. She was fabulous to be around the morning of my wedding, working seamlessly alongside makeup, ensuring everything ran on time and creating a very relaxed environment.
I gave little instruction at my trial, just that I wanted side swept. I was honestly stunned with what she created, the detail was unbelievable. My mum and three bridesmaids all required different styles, Claire nailed every single one of them and they could not have looked or felt more amazing. I really cannot recommend this lovely and very talented lady enough! Thankyou for everything Claire.
Claire did my wedding hair and accepted my last minute booking, I was delighted and booked a trial just in time. I was so happy with my hair and the guests all commented on how lovely it looked. My new husband loved it! Thank you Claire.
I cannot recommend Claire enough. She worked magic on my hair both in my trial and on my wedding day. I didn’t really know what I wanted and she guided me perfectly and we landed on a hairstyle I LOVED. She nailed my bridesmaids hair and made my mum look and feel incredible. She even did my 4yo nieces hair and she looked so cute! Everything was perfect, Claire was kind and forthcoming and exactly what I needed for my wedding day. Thankyou Claire, you were everything I needed.
The go to gal for bohemian, relaxed wedding vibes. Claire did my hair and my bridesmaids hair for my wedding – she knew exactly what we wanted and how to obtain the styles. We all absolutely loved our hair. Claire knows the trends and has a real flare for experimenting with new styles and has a real eye for detail. Offered lots of advice, and is so creative! She did a gorgeous arrangement with fresh flowers in our hair. Always professional and puts a lot of love, thought and time in to her work. She also uses the nicest products! Would always recommend and fell lucky to have her do our wedding hair. It was perfect!
When I look back on my wedding day and when I look at photos, I will always remember how perfect Claire made me look. I felt like a princess and it was all down to her. From the moment we met during my hair trial she understood exactly what I wanted and then blew me away with her skills. I never thought my hair would look so amazing. She is warm, engaging, patient and on the day a very calming influence. Not only did she work wonders on my hair but that of my two bridesmaids, mother, and mother in law (a very difficult customer but Claire won her over in seconds!). She is an exceptional hairstylist and recommend her with a full heart, she really is exceptional.
Claire was amazing! On time, professional, full of energy, and so good with the little ones. My mother, my three bridesmaids and I were astonished by her talent and skills! She has been so understanding of our needs and incorporated her inspirational ideas too. I would absolutely recommend Barberella Bridal to anyone.
Claire did an absolutely brilliant job with my wedding hair, along with that of my four bridesmaids and mum. She was so good that my sister rebooked her straightaway for her own wedding!
My hair is quite fine and annoying and I wasn’t really sure how I wanted it, but Claire helped me pick something that would work and also encouraged me to look into getting some clip in hair extensions for the day. I would never have thought of doing that myself, but it worked so well and I absolutely loved the result.
I was keen to let my bridesmaids pick their own styles and after agreeing a general ‘up do’ theme, Claire worked on each of the day to style something that would work well for their hair. Claire was brilliant on the day itself – she allowed plenty of time so that nothing felt rushed and it meant that the morning was lovely and relaxed.
Claire at Barberella Bridal became my hairdresser many years ago. When I became engaged she was my immediate choice of stylist.
We discussed at length what would work and having Claire with us on the actual day of our wedding was magical.
She transformed us all with her magic wand. Thankyou Claire.
Claire did such an amazing job on mine and my sisters hair at her wedding, if you need a stylist for a bridal party I would highly recommend!
Claire did my hair, my bridesmaids and my mums, she was so easy to work with and brilliant at fighting against fine flyaway hair and limited time as we weren’t able to get access to venue as early as we wanted!
She had a lot of different hair types to work with on the day and was able to work with each of us to find styles that suited our hair type, we all loved the end results!
Claire’s also an expert at doing up the fiddly little buttons on dresses!
Claire has cut, styled and coloured my hair for a few years now, so it was an easy choice to ask her to do my hair for my wedding day.
I was so pleased with my bridal hair (up do) and my bridesmaids hair (half up – half down) I can’t recommend her enough.
Claire is talented and experienced at bridal hair. She really listens to what you want, makes great suggestions, works with you to get it exactly how you want it and is very much a professional.
Claire was just amazing. Having spent a lot of time discussing what I wanted for my day, she took into account my wishes, what would work with my dress, style and colours, what I would be comfortable with and my concerns about my hair style complimenting wearing glasses. Not only did she create a lovely style do for me on my trial which worked with the specs, but also coloured and cut my hair in the weeks prior the wedding, I know Claire is very experienced and talented at colouring as well as styling – getting everything just perfect and ready for my special day.
On the day I, whilst my house was full of busy excited people – all very overwhelming, I felt Claire looked after me, kept me calm and helped me get through what was actually a very stressful morning.
I would not hesitate to recommend Barberella Bridal for looking after a brides hair on her special day, but also the bridesmaids – which she did a fabulous job for my Maid of Honour – just as spectacular without showing mine up.
Consultation, Trial, Cut, Colour and then the hair on the day – I felt like I was working with Claire through the process to get it right, and her enthusiasm and passion for bridal hair really shows, her experience not just for styling but cutting and colouring too, her energy, attention to detail and genuine interest and care for me as her customer, makes Barberella Bridal an easy testimonial and recommendation for me to make.
After being disappointed by a few other hairdressers, Claire got what I was after with just a phone call. My hair is ridiculously thin which makes it hard to do anything with, but with some amazingly coloured hair extensions and a bun donut, she effortlessly made it look full, intricate and amazing. I was after “unusual and interesting” but she gave me beautiful too.
When planning my wedding I looked at so many hairstyles I’d like but not being blessed with great hair (i.e flat, fine and mousy brown) I was starting to think I’d have to just make do. After meeting with Claire I felt like I could actually have a wedding worthy hairstyle that would make me feel great and that’s exactly what she did! I didn’t even realise my hair could look so good!
Claire deserves recognition because she was able to create a perfect hairstyle for my wedding even with my indecisiveness. She ensured that my bridesmaid’s hair were all beautiful and individual to them but that mine still stood out. Claire is extremely friendly and amenable, she helped keep everyone calm and relaxed on the wedding morning. She’s fantastic!
Claire is an exceptional hairdresser. She is very friendly, creative and artistic but in a comfortable way that didn’t make me worried about the styles she’d come up with. Not being an obvious bride type (the wrong side of 30 and carrying too much weight) I was worried how I’d look on my Wedding day. But Claire had some fantastic ideas for me (including my own Pinterest page where we could share ideas), plus my three bridesmaids and we all looked fantastic on the day. Being nervous I had a fair few hair trials and Claire was always friendly and patient with me. The bridesmaids absolutely loved her too. We all had different hair some short, some long but nothing phased Claire. The morning of the Wedding was more like a girlie get together and it felt like we were all friends by then. Claire came to the Hotel really early and there weren’t any last minute panics. She worked well with the make artist and it was a fantastic start to the day. She made my hair look natural but being styled enough to hold Storm Brian’s off and his best efforts to mess my hair up. I’ve had a normal hair cut with Claire too and will continue to go to her even now the wedding is over. A genuinely awesome person.
Claire created a retro style for my hair that went perfectly with my 1020’s inspired wedding dress. She is creative and talented and helped make my wedding day perfect.
