Hair & Make-up Recs (Melbourne)

Tue Jan 12, 2010 6:14 pm

I'm sure I saw a similar topic earlier but can't seem to find it.

I'd love to get some h&mua recs for Melbourne.

My wish list...
- Mobile
- Good communication (have contacted a few and not heard back)
- Ideally have had experience with different skin tone/nationalities. Most galleries have gorgeous blondes with pale skin so it's a little hard imagining what they can do with darker skin.

If you've had great experience with someone (their work as well as their communication) please share. :)

Rogue Artists do hair and makeup, thats who I have chosen
Mary Peda (makeup only) Makeup Art - she is fantastic with all skin colours!

I'm using Kate Fletcher - she's great - mobile, communicates well - you can see some of her work on her website
http://www.katefletcher.net
there aren't any bridal pics there, but one of the girls on Vogue Forums used her for her wedding last weekend and has some pics on that forum

I used CIn and Alli
and Cin is awesome she is such a sweetie,her and her Mum did such an amazing job at keeping my mum and BM's calm. We are actually good friends now :)
Alli did an amazing job on my girls hair esp how I wasn't sure how our Flower girl was going to react to having a stranger play with her hair

Thanks everyone for the recommendations! I really appreciate it. Have emailed Alli and hoping she's available to do a hair trial. I just saw that Cin is pregnant (!!!) and taking Aug off so will try some of the others you've suggested.

Kate Fletcher's make up looks fantastic. I couldn't find a website for Mary Peda but found her contact info via google.

Thanks, ladies. :D

Mary doesnt have a website she does all of her work via word of the mouth, she does all of the bridal magazines and fashion shoots, my photographer recommended her for someone who does a good natural job. She is so lovely, I did initally book her but ended up going with Rogue Artists only because they do hair and makeup. Maybe I should have trialled Ali for hair and then I could have stayed with her. Oh well its done now, but if you need her details, let me know.

Yeah, I hate it when they don't call back. And worse - I hate no return email. I totally understand people get swamped but just a brief templated apology would be appreciated.

hehehe I knew they'd be heaps of similar threads on here, thanks ulya!! your trial pics in your s&t are stunning. I think I was speechless when I first saw them.

ohh! i too have contacted Kate Fletcher for my very first hair and makeup trial! am very excited. So far i've heard lots of great things about her. will let you all know how it goes!
Awanda - I was just wondering, since you also praised Kate's work in the Asian wedding makeup thread, are you Asian? Cause I am and would like a make up artist who can do good Asian make up. Was wondering, thats all! :)

hi jaidi - no I'm not. I have seen some of the work Kate has done for fashion shoots, which included some amazing looks for some Asian girls which is why I thought of her for that thread. Best of luck with your trial.
