Melissa's Make-up and Hair Design - Artist and Courses - Reading London

Hello and welcome to my little slice of internet!

I'm Melissa, an on-location Hair & Makeup Artist based in Milton Keynes, bringing the convenience of luxury hairstyling and makeup artistry services to you on the day. 

Conveniently located in Buckinghamshire and available to travel to surrounding areas including London and beyond. 

I moved from South Africa to the UK in 2021 and am fortunate to continue my work as a hair and makeup artist here. It's been a pleasure to be trusted by hundreds of clients over the last 12 years to create their dreamy bridal looks! 

My favourite hairstyles to create are soft curls, clean textured updos, romantic buns and stylish Hollywood waves paired with radiant makeup to enhance your natural beauty.

I love the way hair & makeup transforms how you feel and I hope to make you feel like your most beautiful, confident self. 

It's my goal to give you the exceptional experience you deserve, where your vision is brought to life. You're in safe hands so you can forget about any PTHDs (past traumatic hairdo's)! 

Relax and indulge in a light-hearted, leisurely wedding morning with your bridal party, while your own on-site glam team creates lasting looks.  

Enjoy a seamless experience with clear communication, getting-ready timelines done for you and an artist who's eager to go the extra mile to create your dream look.

    • Your hair & makeup to last all day and night

    • A professional, hygienic kit with clean brushes

    • A reliable, happy artist  to keep you calm 

    • A caring artist who listens to what you'd like and tailors it to suit you 

    • A relaxed experience with zero stress

    • The convenience of getting ready at your chosen location & being able to book one vendor for your hair and makeup 

    • An experienced artist who's worked at hundreds of weddings and is always ready to jump in and help where needed

    • Exclusivity of your bridal artist, knowing she only books 1 wedding per day and will be by your side

    until you walk down the aisle and there to help with your veil application and last minute touch-ups. 

  • Let's Get Fancy


    I'm also available for event hair and makeup bookings.

    Next time you have somewhere special to be or a photoshoot booked, treat yourself to a professional makeup and hairstyling session so you can look and feel like an absolute goddess!

    Online & In-person


    Do you want to learn how to master your own makeup or learn some easy hairstyling techniques so you can look effortlessly put-together? If you’ve had the same beauty routine for as long as you can remember, now is the time to refresh and modernise things, while still looking like yourself.

    If you're thinking about a makeup lesson, I’d love to teach you some easy ways to do your everyday makeup and how to up the glam factor with some advanced yet do-able techniques. Learn how to curl / wave your hair or how to do a chic and quick bun updo and which products will give you the results you want.

    1:1 lessons can be done in-person or held online and you’ll receive a comprehensive step-by-step e-guide to refer back to after the class, as well as a list of products used. Hairstyling lessons and group sessions are recommended to be done in-person due to the nature of teaching.

    Lessons are approx. 90min-2hrs for either makeup or hairstyling, they can be done separately or bundled together in one longer lesson of 3-4hrs. If you’re short on time, individual 30min lessons are available online where you can focus on a specific area (eg. eyes, lips, base, contour & highlight etc ). 

    Don’t worry if you don’t have many products or tools – during the in-person lessons we’ll work out of my professional kit so you can experience and try different brushes and products. You’ll receive a full product breakdown of what we used plus personal recommendations tailored to you.

    Your lesson can be  customised to suit your needs, so get in touch with me today if you’d like to learn some new techniques and improve your skills.
