Unfortunately I had a bad experience with Beautiful Hair.
Firstly, Brooke did not show up for my trial, which was extremely annoying because I live out of town and had to drive all of the way to find she had “double booked”
Then on the day, she arrived to the house where we were getting ready and she had brought her daughter with her who I had no idea was going to be there, she was skating around the house which we had strict instructions from the home owner to not wear heals because of the wooden floors. Her daughter was also helping herself to our food and made herself at home. Then later on Brooke had invited one of her friends over and she also brought another child…So on my wedding day, we had two random children running around and another lady who was strolling around making themselves at home. The photographer ended up asking them to leave because it was mind blowing what was happening!
Then when it came to doing my hair, she agreed and promised she knew how to do the curls I had requested… when she was finished I was shocked with the end result and had to fix my hair frantically myself.
Extremely unprofessional - would not recommend!!!

Brooke is like a little ray of sunshine, the most positive, friendly person to have round on your big day! I booked Brooke based on the photos I’d seen on her facebook page and was so pleased I did! We only met about 2 weeks before the wedding when I did a trial, but she immediately understood what I was after and created a wonderful look for me. On the day, Brooke also looked after my mum, mum-in-law and nana-in-law and we were all so happy with her services. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Brooke to anyone looking for a stylist, she was quick & efficient but most importantly did a wonderful job on making our hair look perfect and it lasted all night!!

I just wanted to say you a huge thank you for the wonderful job you did on our hair. I really appreciate the time and effort you put in and the result was more perfect than I could ever have imagined. Brooke, your work is truly stunning and you made sure I felt and looked fabulous and that my bridesmaids and mum also looked just as amazing. You went over and above to make my day so special. Thank you so much!

Brooke is amazing at what she does! She created exactly what I was looking for, given only a few vague ideas from me. Brooke created amazing looks for myself, 3 bridesmaids and my Mum which we all loved and felt amazing in. She creates beautiful styles in minimal time and is always prompt and a delight to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend Brooke to any prospective bride who is looking for an outstanding hair day for their wedding. Thank you, from all of us ladies.

Brooke did my wedding hair and my four bridesmaids and wow… what an incredible job she did (and was so fast without any compromise on quality)! Brooke was always so friendly and helpful and it was lovely having her cheerful personality around on the wedding day. All of our hair looked amazing and we got so many compliments. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Brooke for any brides to be.

Brooke did my wedding hair, my 2 bridesmaids and my mums hair. She is one of the loveliest people I have ever met. She always had a smile on her face and she was so lovely to work with, she made me laugh and on my wedding day she was able to make me relax as I was nervous. She is super talented at making your hair look amazing and knows how to work with different hair styles,
I had my hair trial 2 weeks before my wedding I knew what I wanted but didn’t know if it would work for my hair so showed the photos to Brooke and she was able to create a stunning look, I did change my hair slightly for my wedding day and Brooke did a wonderful job for all of us, we all looked amazing. It lasted right through to the end of the night and no touch ups were needed. Brooke was cool calm and collected throughout the 4 hours and professional every step of the way, arriving on time and finishing on time. I would highly recommend her to anybody I know getting their hair done for any wedding or a special event.

I was very confused about how i wanted my hair. I couldn’t even choose between up or down. At the hair trial Brooke did it in both styles and i chose half up half down. Then i decided that i thought it would look more elegant up but not in a low bun like seems to be in fashion in all the magazines at the moment. Brooke new exactly what i was thinking and on the day did my hair absolutely perfectly and made me feel like a princess. I had 5 bridesmaids and one wanted up and one wanted down (i wanted them all the same). Brooke created a side swept intricate look that they all loved and looked so gorgeous.
Not only is Brooke amazing at what she does, she is also one of the nicest people i have ever met so sitting with her while she does your hair is like meeting up with coffee with one of your best friends, You feel very at ease as you know you are in good hands.
Would recommend Brooke to any bride/bridesmaids or anyone needing their hair looking amazing for a special occasion!

Brooke did my hair and my 4 bridesmaids hair. She is one of the loveliest people I have ever met. She is super talented at making your hair look amazing and knows how to work with different hair-mine is super thin and a couple of my bridesmaids had quite thick hair-they all looked amazing-I know it lasts very well-we had a beach wedding so there was some wind however no touch ups were necessary-my bridesmaid that got her hair done first, at 945am, had many comments on how amazing her hair looked! Brooke was cool calm and collected throughout the 4 hours and professional every step of the way, arriving on time and finishing on time. I would highly recommend her to anybody I know getting their hair done for any sort of event.

Brooke created a style I loved from the pictures I had shown her during our hair trail. My hair looked great and stayed in place all day! Great value for money and you can’t beat her lovely personality!! She is kind, chatty, full of funny ideas and compliments. It was a delight having her around while I was getting ready, took the nerves away.
I highly recommend Brooke for your wedding day!

Brooke was an amazing, joyful soul to have with me on my Wedding Day morning, making me feel so special and look so gorgeous. She skillfully created my dream hair from an image I had found searching the internet.
Her dedication even included a quick dash to the shops on the day to ensure I had the perfect nail colour to match my chosen lipstick. Thank you so much Brooke xx.

Brooke was an absolute delight to have as part of our special day! She was so flexible, getting up at an ungodly hour to have me, my 3 bridesmaids, flower girl and mother of the groom ready for a sunrise wedding. She lit up the morning with a huge smile and a fabulous sense of humour. Starting the day with so many laughs made everything even more magical!
Brooke was super accommodating with the vague directions I gave and did a truly beautiful job of everyones hair,

I booked Brooke a little last minute as my original hairdresser fell through. She is really lovely and good at what she does. She did my hair and four bridesmaids and wasn’t at all fazed when I said I showed her the bucket of flowers I wanted her to pin into my bridesmaids hair. She’s super flexible and works really fast and doesn’t compromise on quality. Highly recommend!
Thanks so much for making our hair look so stunning Xx

Brooke was amazing on our wedding day! Our bridal party consisted of me, four bridesmaids, four flower girls and the MOB. She was professional yet fun and made the getting ready part of the day so easy and relaxing. I also had a couple of changes to make from the hair trial which she made happen easily. I would definitely recommend having Brooke on your special day.
Wedding Date: March 8, 2014
Brooke is completely lovely and it was a pleasure to have her there for my wedding prep. Brooke works super efficiently and achieves your desired look. She did my hair and my 3 bridesmaids, all of which were different styles. They just showed her photos of what they wanted and she worked her magic. Brooke also took on board my changes from my initial trial and achieved an updo that was spot on Thanks again Brooke
Wedding Date: March 1, 2014
Brooke was absolutely lovely to work with on my wedding day. I had no idea of what to do with my hair but she took a minute to think it over then off we went! My hair looked great and I had a lot of positive comments on it. My bridesmaids also looked beautiful and Brooke attended promptly to the only small thing that we needed to change. Brooke was also happy to include my mother as a late minute addition on the day. I would absolutely recommend Brooke to any bride-to-be
Wedding Date: February 7, 2014
Brooke was absolutely lovely, she has such an amazing personality. I loved how my hair and my bridesmaids hair turned out. She listened to what I wanted and it turned out perfect. My mother loved her hair and even got lovely comments. I would recommend Brooke to any bride she is amazing. Thank you so much Brooke!
Wedding Date: January 2, 2014
I loved having my hair done by Brooke! She was loads of fun and our hair looked amazing! The bride wasn’t too fussed with how our hair was and Brooke used her creative flare along with what suited each bridesmaid to come up with something we all loved
Would recommend to all brides
Wedding Date: January 10, 2014
I found Brooke through this website, Wedding Wise, and based on other peoples comments contacted her.
Brooke’s reply was prompt. Her pricing was fantastic! She came across in her communication as a very genuine, caring person…and when you meet her, you feel her warmth. She was such a joy to have around on my wedding morning!
At my trial, she looked at my hair, asked me what I wanted to achieve, put it up elegantly, and I loved it - sorted in one go…amazing!
Brooke confidently did all five bridal party hair-ups, by 10 am (we all had shoulder-length hair, no crops or bobs to save time on). Brooke also did my Mum’s hair, and our MC’s hair, once the bridal party had departed.
All the girls looked stunning and our hair lasted from 7 am through to midnight. My hair was still immaculate the next day, and I kept it in for the next day’s celebrations.
Brooke is exceptionally talented, a warm, caring, genuine person, who offers a wonderful product, and will make you feel incredible on your important day, I couldnt recommend her more highly.
