What services do Final Touches provide?

Final Touches provides a bridal hair and make-up service.

How did Final Touches get started and how long has the business been going?

Final Touches got started when a friend who is a make-up artist asked me to help do the hair at a wedding in 2002. I really enjoyed the experience and started helping her more and more. I soon realised I preferred the wedding work and freedom of working freelance rather than being employed. I already had hair and make-up skills but decided to take a few refresher courses in bridal hair and make-up. Then, after much consideration and deliberation I decided to set up Final Touches and haven’t looked back since.

Who works at Final Touches and what are your backgrounds?

Final Touches is solely run by myself but I call upon other freelance hair and make-up colleagues who I have worked with over the years when I have a large bridal party.

My background has always been in the beauty industry and I started as an apprentice hairdresser on leaving school and completed a City and Guilds 3 year course. I then worked on board cruise ships for a number of years, travelling to numerous countries and began training in make-up when I returned. I’ve worked for Virgin Atlantic in the upper class lounge as a stylist and educator to air stewardesses about to undertake abinitio training. I’m a qualified teaching assessor and have a Cert Ed in adult education.

Why should a bride and female members of the bridal party have a professional to do their hair and make-up on the day of the wedding?

When a bride chooses a beautiful dress, jewellery and shoes, and thinks hard about what photographer to choose, I think it’s important to complete the look with professional hair and make-up. Your wedding photos are something you will want to treasure and look your best in, so having flawless make-up and beautiful hair is a must for every bride.

This also makes for an enjoyable wedding morning spent with your bridesmaids, stress free and being pampered without the hassle of having to go to a salon.
