Bridal Hair and Makeup
With over 12 years in the beauty industry I have learnt there are no rules to cosmetics, make-up is ageless, raceless and designed for everyone. What I offer is a passionate and creative approach to your look and endeavour to create the perfect finish for any occassion. No bridal party is too big or small, I come to you and bring all required for on the day services. With stylists on hand we can help to create a stressfree environment with a bit of pampering to add
Based in Auckland I am fully mobile and will travel where and when required to your chosen location, North, South, East, West, including Waiheke Island and national travel throughout New Zealand.
I love what I do and I look forward to meeting you soon , contact me now for a free consultation.
Alison did the hair and makeup for me and my 3 bridesmaids.
She did an amazing job! Everyone commented on how great we still looked at the end of the night (even though we’d been hit with a bout of Auckland rain!)
I would definitely reccommend her if you are planning your big day!!

I was recommended Alison through a friend who used her a few months prior to my wedding.
Alison did an absolutely amazing job on my hair and makeup and my bridesmaids hair. I absolutely loved all the detail and the overall look. Very stoked indeed and she exceeded my expectations. I know the girls felt exactly the same! Alison was extremely professional and calm and super efficient! I loved how our photos turned out, and the makeup /hair not only looks fantastic in the piccies but it stayed the WHOLE night! Myself and the girls had so many compliments . She is extremely talented and I would have no hesitations in recommending her. Thank you so much for helping me feel so beautiful on my wedding day!! =)

I live in Whanganui and came across Alison by chance when I was searching for a makeup artist. I very seldom wear makeup and when I do its normally only mascara and bit of lip gloss. My experience with wearing makeup has been a mixed bag and not in a good way. Generally the results have left me gasping and running for the nearest bathroom to wash it all off my face. Needless to say I was extremely anxious at the possibility that I may just want to do that on my wedding day… boy how wrong was I! Alison is truly amazing and I don’t say that lightly. Her warmth and kindness is refreshing especially when everything else around you is complete chaos. Her ability to calm you when your emotions are in overdrive and your feeling like Niagara Falls are going to come flooding from your eyes destroying the amazing work she’s created is priceless. I can say with all sincerity that when I looked in the mirror for the first time I felt like I was looking at the most beautiful woman in the world and lets be honest every bride wants to and should feel exactly like that on what will be one of the most special days in her life!!! I recommend Ali a million times over ... if you are looking for someone who is professional, talented, authentic, honest and kind (my list could go on for ever) then she’s your lady. Thanks again Ali your amazing

Alison is a great makeup artist and she does amazing hair as well!
Alison was recommended to me by my cousin who had worked with her in the past and the recommendation was well deserved!
I organised my wedding while living in the UK so the only contact we had in the lead up was via emails. We had a couple of delays in emails and I hadn’t paid a deposit up front but I didn’t need to worry, Alison had me all booked in and hadn’t forgotten about me!! She turned out to be the perfect choice.
I had no photos or clear ideas of what I wanted but Alison knew exactly what to do. My makeup and hair turned out beautifully.
I was so impressed that everything lasted all day and night. My hair is straight and really stubborn and doesn’t usually last long in an updo but Alison’s work stayed put all day even in the wind!
Alison also did the make up on my Mum, Sister in law and friend - everyone looked lovely - no fuss, no stress!
Alison is so friendly and chilled out but still really professional. I really enjoyed her company on the morning of my wedding.
I have no hesitation in recommending Alison - her work is amazing and you can trust you are in safe hands! I look forward to finding an excuse to have her do my make up and hair again!

I was referred to Ali from my sister in law and I’m so happy to have been put in touch with such a Gem!
Ali was the hair and makeup artist for me, 2 bridesmaids and my Mum on my Wedding Day. She did such an amazing job with all of us and her talented hands truely did make me feel like a princess.
It was all a very relaxed and fun process.
Thanks again Ali, you are just brilliant!

Alison was my makeup and hair artist for my wedding day and I am soooo happy I found her!! She battled through the humid summer weather and gave me the WOW factor! I don’t normally wear much make-up so I wanted something that felt light and natural, I explained what I was after to Alison and she really got it! The make up felt very light and natural, I couldn’t believe the way she brought out my eyes! For my hair she gave me the perfect ‘Taylor Swift’ look!
I highly recommend Alison and have friends who will also be using her for there wedding day too, she was lovely to work with and is a very talented lady!

Alison made the whole process of hair and makeup so easy for me. She arrived on time and was very organised. As for the results, I was absolutley amazed. My hair is fine, but have lots of it and usually wont go in an updo, but she did the most awesome design, which stayed put all day.
And the makeup was natural but highlighted the good bits as was requested.
I couldnt have been happier, and had lots of compliments.
If you are looking for a reliable and talented hair and makeup artist, then Alison is the best person you could ask for.
Thanks again Alison!

Alison did my hair, make up and nails for my wedding in April last year and she did a fantastic job. She was so great on the day and she really helped me feel relaxed and calm. She stayed with me until it was time for me to leave and she even helped me get dressed and put on my shoes. I really feel that she captured the style that I was after and everyone at the wedding kept commenting on how amazing I looked… I felt like a star!
Wedding Date: April 14, 2012
I wanted the perfect hair and the perfect make-up. Obviously not too much to ask for and not too big a task for Alison Brewer.
She is very on to it and quite tech-savvy. Everything was done mostly via email and a few phone calls, which I appreciated because I’m always on the go and do not have time for meet-ups. Ali understood what I wanted with just a couple of jpegs and links of looks that I sent through her email. Execution was absolutely perfect.
She is also creative and a pro and so I have no qualms recommending her to friends and family.
I think I found my make-up artist for life. Thanks, Ali!
Wedding Date: December 17, 2011
Aww my gosh where do I start….
Alison was amazing in every way possible!!
I had a large bridal party of 6 and I had an 11am ceremony… We had a very early start of 5.30am, and it was no problem at all with Ali and her team.
Our make up was amazing and lasted all day and night!! No shine or dryness, it was great! And our hair looked awesome!
Honestly if you are looking for a makeup/hair artist then look no futher Ali is your lady!!
I highly recommend her for any job you require.
Thank you for making my day perfect and making me feel like a princess

Alison is definitely a talented makeup artist,she was very professional, efficient as well as down to earth, giving me a good feeling to start a hectic special day for me. I love the makeup she did to me as well as my bridal party, we all looked very natural in a perfect way, which was exactly I was asking for, and also she used her artistic talent to add some touch onto it, which has brought out everyone’s character, it was just simply beautiful work! I am more than happy to vote Alison as the top makeup artist in NZ!
Wedding Date: 23th May 2011
Alison did a brilliant job with not just my hair and makeup on the big day but calming my nerves and concerns in the days leading up!
All her years experience and high level of professionalism put me at ease. My bridesmaids and I looked fantastic on the day, gorgeous hair and stunning longlasting makeup - this was especially important as it was such a long day. Thanks again Alison!
Wedding Date: April 27, 2012
Ali did the makeup for me and my 3 bridesmaids and I couldn’t have been more happy. She was very helpful and professional throughout the entire process. My trial was really helpful to establish the look that i wanted. I went armed with some photos and ideas and Ali was able to tell me what would suit me and what wouldn’t and in the end adapted one of the hair styles I liked so it would suit my face shape. The makeup she did was amazing. I was impressed with the preparation that Ali did as she made all my bridesmaids choose a hairstyle prior to the day to give her a starting point which really helped on the day. She bought a colleague with her to help on the day and she was lovely and the 2 of them worked really well together and we all looked amazing. One of the things that I was most impressed by was Ali’s work ethic - on the day of the trial she confessed she had had a some personal issues occur and then on the eve of the wedding she had had food poisoning yet on neither occasion did she cancel. On the day of the wedding she was clearly not feeling great but she carried on and did a fantastic job. I cannot recommend Ali highly enough. If you want a no nonsense, honest and reliable hair and makeup artist then choose Ali.
Wedding Date: January 27, 2012
Wow - Alison you are AMAZING! Myself and the bridal party looked like we were from the pages of a magazine. The make up you did was stunning and complemented each of us girls individually. It also stayed on until the wee small hours of the morning including a few hours on the dance floor! A true testimony to your work you have done myself and my 2 sisters weddings and all 3 of us would have no hesitation in recommending you for the bride and bridal party who want an awesome make up job! Thanks again Alison, you made me look and feel like a super model (if only for 1 day!).

As a professional photographer I like to surround myself with people in the industry that day to day produce nothing but the best work and who are quite honestly, just nice people, who love their chosen profession. Attitude to your role in a brides day is as important as skill. Alison Brewer has an abundance of skill and a brilliant attitude. Most importantly she is always on time.
Without my knowledge Alison has written a review of my own company on this site - Dillon Photography - and I just thought I would return the favour.
Alison is in the top four of my seventeen recommended hair/ makeup artists. My top four cannot be seperated by preference as they are all amongst the absolute best in the industry.
All of my top 4 will come to the brides house. This is a day you should be treated like a princess and have everyone come to you. Stop jumping in the car to go to your local salon… they probably do very few wedding hair styles anyway. Choose people who specialise in wedding makeup and hair.
