Hilary you were absolutely amazing from start to finish. The hair trial was perfect and you made it so easy to chose a style that suited me, along with sourcing complimentary colours for my fair skin in the make up trial. Tirelessly working from the early hours of the big day you helped make us all look perfect – not just making me look amazing but also my bridesmaids, mother and grandmother of the bride too! I had so many compliments about my hair throughout the day, which just added to my smile. You went above and beyond helping me keep calm and holding my hand through what turned out to be a tuff morning – not what a bride wants on her special day. I can honestly say it wouldn’t have been the same without you there with us.
Definitely recommend you to all brides to be.
Hilary has amazing customer service skills, and a great ability to liaise with myself and my bridesmaids to understand how we wanted to look. The hair and the makeup were so soft and natural and had incredible detail and precision. I didn’t have an easy time organising most of my wedding in Herefordshire as I live in Nottingham, Hilary booked me in for a trial only days before my wedding. She advised me on my look and was so friendly and approachable throughout, it made a HUGE difference.
My hair loss was slow but sure. For as long as I can remember I have been trying to disguise frontal for rising alopecia, but it beat me! Seeing a photo of myself finally urged me to seek some help and I was so pleased to find someone local to me.
Before I knew it I was sitting in Hilarys salon for a consultation, to cut a long story short,before the end of the week she had some wigs for me to try and one of them was the one I chose.
I wore it out the next day, and have been wearing it ever since. People comment on it telling me they love my new hair cut! that it takes years off me, that it really suits me. The only person that knew it was a wig was my own hairdresser, she was very impressed!
I won’t say that it’s a easy thing to do but knowing that everyone thinks it’s my own hair gives me so much confidence., and that’s down to Hilary her skills and knowledge and abilities, “she’s not happy until your happy”
I have since ordered a second wig and enjoying wearing make up and coloured clothes again instead of hiding away!
I was contacted recently by a 76 year old woman who was suffering from hair loss and found her life was being dictated by her hair. This was causing her a significant amount of distress, so much so, that she finally decided to ask for help. I arranged for her to come for a consultation so that we could discuss options together. At the consultation, it was clear that she was very nervous and that asking for help was a big step for her to have taken. I discussed options with her and we looked at possible styles for a wig. It was agreed that we would order some samples of the styles that she liked and arrange a follow up appointment. Within 3 days, the sample wigs had arrived, a further consultation had taken place and a wig had been chosen and fitted. The transformation was incredible, but don’t just take my word for it; below are some of the messages I received following the wig fitting:
“When I arrived home, I was very nervous about how my husband would react to it but he absolutely loves it and says it is the right style and colour for me…I think I relaxed then, hence the glasses of wine. I put it on this morning and just tweaked a bit here and there, so much easier and quicker than styling my own hair. I can’t stop looking at it, it is exactly how I would have chosen to style my own hair were it of sufficient quantity.
I can’t thank you enough for all your help and considerable knowledge, this has transformed my life. I was so nervous when I realised that this was the only option open to me, it was a huge decision to make but I knew I had to do it for the sake of my mental health. I spent hours trawling through the internet and there you were, right on my doorstep. You are such an easy person to talk to and, because of your experience, you completely understand. I feel twenty years younger in myself, it is like a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. Now, when I play golf, I can concentrate on hitting the ball and not on wondering if the wind is going to blow or if it is going to rain and how I am going to look when we get back into the clubhouse – wonderful! Maybe my handicap will improve! I have cancelled my next highlight/trim appointment so will be in touch at some point to arrange a trim with you…”
“…I am still smiling! I went to golf yesterday and there were more ladies there but only two made a comment and that was “I like your hair”, so I was very happy…My group of friends said again yesterday that it was amazing and no one would guess it was not my hair…knowing me and knowing how brilliant this one is, I will probably order a second one in time…I did think I wouldn’t wear it all the time at home but I just can’t leave it off.”
“I had arranged to play golf yesterday morning but asked…my best friend if she would meet me a bit late so I could speak to her before facing the rest of the group, giving them a chance to get on the course before us. I drove into the car park and they were all waiting for me! [My best friend] had tried to say for them to go but they insisted on waiting for me. You can imagine the state I was in. [My best friend] cam to my car and smiled when she looked at me and then I burst into tears. She then came and sat in my car and asked me what was wrong – more tears and then I said “its my hair” to which she replied “it looks beautiful”. By this time, the others were concerned about me but they were brilliant so I relaxed and we played 9 holes. After playing, we went into the restaurant for coffee and just inside the main door was a table with six more ladies sat there. One said “…I like your hair, have you had it coloured?”. Then they all agreed and I had to do a twirl. I didn’t say a word. It is Club day tomorrow so there will be more ladies but I am not feeling too bad about it after yesterday’s reaction. You were right when you said people will just think I have changed my style. So, I am still smiling! It is absolutely brilliant. My husband keeps commenting on how lovely it looks so I am a really happy bunny.”

If you are suffering in silence because of hair loss, please contact me. I offer an completely confidential service and together, we will find the right solution for you.
I first met Hilary at my friend’s wedding when I was a bridesmaid. Hilary impressed me with how lovely and professional she was from the moment she entered the room. Then she impressed me still further with her skills as a hairdresser. She some how managed to turn my short, fine hair into a wonderful, full and beautiful hair style. I think she can do magic.
When I became engaged two years later Hilary was the first person I thought of to do my hair for my own big day. Hilary was as personable and friendly as I had remembered and recalled me from the previous wedding, which shows how much she gives to each job. On my big day she was a joy to be around, calm and professional. My hair was beautiful and had many comments.
I would tell every bride that you cannot go wrong with booking Hilary for your big day. She is a superstar.
Hilary was very friendly and helpful throughout and understood what I wanted straight away, as well as having appropriate suggestions that helped me to get my final look. Hilary and her team were reassuring and patient throughout, particularly when I had to keep changing the timings and on the wedding day when people were late. Hilary worked around the timing issues and everything got done in time. Hilary really did help me relax as much as possible on my big day and my hair and makeup looked great.
