“What a wonderful day it was! Katie was incredible, she knew exactly what to do with my fair complexion and fine straight hair. I could not have been happier with the final result! I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to feel beautiful and glamorous and have a lot of fun in the process, a princess for a day!”
“Katie you are fantastic, what a professional!
I can’t thank you enough! Obviously the make-up and hair were perfect. On top of this I really appreciated your calm, happy energy. It made everything go really smooth. And I was also so impressed how patient you were with the flower girls and how you made my husband comfortable with the idea of getting his hair blow dried and his nose powdered ?
The day was perfect and you were a big part of that.”
“I would absolutely recommend Katrina as a truly professional, creative make up artist and hair stylist. She always delivers style and imagination with a beautiful manor, she is fun and you will always be impressed, definitely book her for weddings, groups and parties. She managed to tame my hair, make my unusual skin tone and she gives great tips on how to look after yourself too.”
“I worked with Katrina on several short (student) films as well as on a professional photoshoot.
It was my first time directing a short film, and without Katrina the day would have ended in tears – not only did she do an absolutely stellar job on the makeup of my actors, she was so professional throughout, and her calm, even and friendly temperament ensured that the day was a success. She held it together when I could not; she was, without fail, friendly, obliging and versatile; and she very clearly knew how a professional outfit would work and helped us work towards that standard. To be frank, I was amazed.
Katrina worked through the photoshoot in the exact same fashion – endless patience, kindness, professionalism and humour. She was organised, efficient, and so very good at making me feel like I belonged in front of the camera that I (who had never modelled before) felt confident enough to relax and just have fun. On top of this, the makeup she did for the three looks I wore (Special Occasion, Ball, and Cocktail) was seamless, stunning, and absolutely perfect for both me, the model, and the outfits. She has such an intuitive grasp of colour, pattern, line and form, and is a true artist – a true artist who is also sensitive to the needs of the model and the situation.
Both of these occasions involved multiple complicated hair styles – and Katie pulled every single one of them off with grace, flair, and a technical and artistic sophistication that bordered on superhuman. Somehow, Katrina can interpret vague statements like ‘I want something pretty and Grecian, with flowers’ into a do that outdid my original vision (and that’s saying something.) She also always refers styles, for both the makeup and the hair, back to the client, which is invaluable, rare and very reassuring.
All in all, as well as being exceptionally talented and disciplined when it comes to the raw mechanics of hair and makeup, Katrina is one of those rarest of all creatures, the artist who refines their work through excellent, thoughtful and heartfelt communication with the client, and maintains a strong sense of professionalism and humour under even the most trying circumstances. Awesome!”
“I was speechless over how you did my hair I can only hope I can re-create such a stunning hairstyle. I didn’t even know my hair could look like that, it seriously looked like out of a magazine. As always you are brilliant to work with and always lovely to talk too.”
“It is always a pleasure to work with Katrina. The idea of her being mobile is just a relief on its own. One point l had photography with Katrina and she came five minutes earlier which l loved. I loved the way she did my hair. I could not have done it any better. It all gave me a beautiful and new look. She is so calm and made me relax.”
