Wedding Makeup Artists & Hair Stylists

Bridal Hair and Makeup Specialists

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding and thank you for choosing Mink Studios to be part of your special day.  We are confident that we have the bridal hair and makeup package to suit you, whether you would like your hair and makeup done in the comfort of your own home, or you would like to be pampered in our beautiful studio in Monkseaton, Whitley Bay.  We are extremely flexible and very accommodating and are dedicated to making every detail perfect for your wedding day.

Mink Studios offer a full bridal wedding hair and makeup service which starts with an initial chat with our senior makeup artist, hair stylist and wedding coordinator who will guide you through your wedding booking from start to finish.  After getting an idea of the type of looks you want us to create for your wedding you may wish to have a wedding trial.

We advise that all brides have a trial although this is not compulsory.  The trial can take place either in our studio or in the comfort of your own home.  Having a trial gives you the chance to try out different looks and styles to find the best one to suit you on your wedding day.  Anyone in your wedding party can request to have a wedding trial.

On the day of your wedding we can come to a venue of your choice, we also offer a private wedding service in our studio where you and your bridal party can come to us to be pampered and enjoy a glass of bubbly while we get you ready for your big day.

Thank you so much Ashley, for doing my hair and makeup for my post wedding party. It was a real joy! You are such a lovely person and listened to what I wanted and gave excellent suggestions about what look to have. I was very happy with my make up, which was natural, with just the right amount of glam! You also suggested having my hair up. I was so pleased with how you did it and it looked great. I can honestly say that I felt really special. I have never had so many compliments, so thank you again. I will be back!

I booked Mink Studios for my Wedding Day after an amazing trial – I was the only one in the shop, Ashleigh made me feel comfortable and very confident in the way she applied the make up, as I was after a very natural look.
On the day, Ashleigh and Madison were doing the make up for the Bridal Party. From the moment they arrived, they got straight to it. Setting up by the window with a lovely view to be looking out across the golf course.
They constantly let us look at the progress to make sure we were happy with everything.
I managed to get sun burnt 4 days before the wedding and Ashleigh gave me great advice and applied what was needed to cover that on the day (that can now be added to your CV Ashleigh)
Would highly recommend booking Mink Studios for your Wedding Day, full trust in them to do an amazing job! Thank you again!

Why Choose Mink Studios

We understand that choosing the right makeup artist and hair stylist is very important as this is a once in a lifetime event.  Over the years, our brides have commented on how smoothly their wedding morning went and how relaxed they felt, being pampered before their ceremony.  We work very closely with the bride and the bridal party on the run up to the wedding to ensure we know exactly what is required of us.  Our fully qualified, insured and highly experienced hair stylists and makeup artists will ensure that you look your absolute best on your special day.

You know you are in safe hands when choosing Mink Studios for your wedding hair and makeup.  Our lead makeup artist and hair stylist also teaches both subjects to other makeup artists and beginners in the industry.  We are confident that we can create the perfect look for you on your big day, whether its full Hollywood glam or fresh timeless English rose.

With us it is not just about the makeup but also about making you feel comfortable and worry free on the morning of your ceremony.

We feel that our wedding hair and makeup prices are very competitive and great value for money.  Many makeup artists working in the area are not qualified and do not have public liability insurance.  If you do not end up choosing Mink Studios for your bridal hair and makeup please ask the makeup artist or hair stylist for proof of these documents.
