If you’ve arrived here you’re probably getting married, which is awesome – congrats! You’re also probably trying to figure out which of the many awesome Nottingham wedding hairstylists you want for your wedding? If this sounds like you, keep on reading!

We know there are a whole lot of awesome wedding suppliers in Nottingham, we’ve been writing about a whole range this year, from videographers, celebrants, entertainers and planners to flowers, cakes and makeup artists.

This blog however, is all about hairstylists! How do you choose the best hairstylist? In a similar way to choosing a makeup artists, it’s not all about how they make you look. It’s also about how they make you feel. You really want to gel with your hairstylist. Will they be able to tame those wedding day jitters, know when to crack a joke or give you a hug? Will they be the ones to set you up for the biggest, most exciting day of your life?

Having worked in the Nottingham area for a few years now, we’ve met some of the best local suppliers. Here’s our list of some awesome local wedding hairstylists (in no particular order!):

If you have any questions or want to know our thoughts on a particular business, please contact us.

Moira Borg Hair Artist

Why do we think Moira Borg Hair Artist is an awesome Nottingham wedding hairstylist?

We first met Moira through her other job, managing Meadow Vale wedding venue, a stunning outdoor wedding venue in Nottingham. But we’ve since found out she’s clearly a very talented lady because she’s also an incredible hairstylist.

We think she’s absolutely spot on when she says being a hairstylist is about so much more than styling hair. It’s about attention to detail, it’s about creativity and experience and ultimately it’s about making the bride feel comfortable, happy and relaxed. If this sounds like the kind of vibe you’re after, Moira could be right up your street!

We wanted to know more about Moira Borg Hair Artist – so we asked her!

Where are you based and how far do you travel?

“I am based in a small village called Screveton in Nottinghamshire, I travel around UK, but if a wedding is further than a two hour drive I would ask for accommodation the night before, this insures I will be there on time the morning of the wedding.”

How would you describe your business in three words?

“Three words! That’s a tough one… ‘Artistic, bespoke hairstyling’’”

What inspires you?

“Many things inspire me, actually it can come from anywhere. Sometimes it the dress, their colour scheme or even after character. I do also enjoy looking at other artists work which is where I get some more inspiration and ideas.”

On average how much do people spend with you?

“The average spend with me is around £400, I have a minimum cost of £250 but then it depends how many extra bridesmaids the bride would like to add.”

What makes your business special?

“This might sound a little proud, but I believe what makes my business special is me. My brides don’t just pay for a hairstyle, they pay for my knowledge, my experience, my creativity, my attention to detail and it’s all that put together which the service that I am offering. Every bride gets my undivided attention as each one is special to me and not just ‘another job’. I love my work and I have missed not being able to do it this summer!”

Plaits and Pin Curls

Why do we think Plaits and Pin Curls is an awesome Nottingham wedding hairstylist?

Lauren is one of the many lovely folk we’ve met through the awesome Unconventional wedding’s directory and suppliers group. And she’s an incredibly talented hairstylist, but, as we said, being a hair stylist is about more than beautiful hair which is why we love how much she champions women’s empowerment. From the photoshoot she’s arranged to making sure a bride looks, but more importantly, feels phenomenal on her wedding day, she certainly knows how to make a women feel at their best! What more could you need?

We wanted to know more about Lauren and her business – so we asked her!

Where are you based and how far from Nottingham do you travel?

“I’m local to Loughborough/ Leicestershire but cover Nottingham/Derby and most of the East Midlands. I’m about 30/40 minute drive from most popular nottingham bridal venues! But I really travel wherever, it depends on the party size and event time.”  

How would you describe your business in three words?

“Pampered, empowerment & passion.”  

What inspires you?

“Honestly, it’s a factor that often changes, mostly it’s making women feel pretty, it’s that simple & the most lovely version of themselves. It sounds odd to say I enjoy making women cry (oh that could be fun to take out of context) but tears of joy is a really nice thing! And it not just the hair, I attach buttonholes, get mum to stop faffing and get her in the car (a job in itself) and blow out candles and shut windows so the house is still standing when the bride comes home (far to frazzled to remember).”

How much do people spend with you?

“My pricelist is always available to view on my website, I know from being a bride myself nothing makes a wedding harder to budget for than “ask for a quote”; so they are available to view anytime! 

However, it really depends on your party size, I don’t have packages like a lot of suppliers, its simply per head – so it changes weekly! 

It is becoming more popular for bridesmaid to pay for themselves. In fact my bridesmaid brought her own dress, so times and traditions are certainly changing in who pays! (Or she really hated what I chose)”    

What makes Plaits and Pin Curls hairstylist special?

“I like to support women in every way, I have a genuine love for weddings, I always cry at dad getting his first look and squeal when I get photos of happy couples! I zip up dresses and have gone under far too many dresses to count to put forgotten garters on (oh fail). I suppose I’ve chosen to carry on watching Patrick Cameron (hair up god!) tutorials and practice new braids , enter national & international competitions to push myself and gain feedback.

I organised my own women’s’ empowerment photo shoots with clothing brands and even style for London Fashion Week and brave the parking (oh my not again in a hurry!).

Being chosen to be part of a brides morning is special and being able to support, encourage and embrace women to love their hair and how they look is a really phenomenal part of my job and weddings. I think it’s special if I can make it all tie in together doing what I’m trained to do.”

Lilly Monroes Hair and Makeup

Why do we think Lilly Monroes Hair and Makeup is an awesome Nottingham wedding hairstylist?

We’ve not had the pleasure of actually meeting the lovely sisters over at Lilly Monroes in person (yet!), but we shot the wedding of Chloe (above) and Craig last summer and, well, doesn’t she look stunning? Chloe absolutely loved the work Lilly Monroes did on the morning of her wedding. As you can see from this great review she left them:

“Vendors wise, we loved all of them. But I think Lilly Monroes, who did all our hair and makeup in the morning were a standout on the day. Apart from doing a fantastic job and making us all look incredible, Danielle was very good at calming my nerves. I say nerves, maybe not nerves but I was really anxious as you can imagine, didn’t have much sleep. I think I got three hours tops and she just help me deal with those morning nerves, which I’ll be forever grateful for.

— Chloe, 2019
