The Distinctive Dame | Bridal Hair and Makeup in Melbourne

Bridal Hair and Makeup in Melbourne

We are SO excited that you’ve landed on this page and are thinking about working together. We’ve worked on So many weddings over the years, waaay more than we’ll ever attend in this lifetime..

There are so many ways to interpret the brief of wedding and curate an experience that is a true and honest reflection of you. 
We would love to be part of that process and nurture you through to the stage where you feel like the hair and makeup look that we create together is spot on. It is very much a collaborative effort.

Our arms, chairs and hearts are open to looking after anyone in need of fancy hair and makeup for their wedding day, commitment ceremony, post elopement party, civil ceremony (our studio is located a stone’s throw from the Melbourne Treasury Building) or even destination wedding. 

Whilst we are based in Melbourne, we’re willing to travel Anywhere.
Tassie, Daylesford, Sydney, Mornington, New York. Broome. 
We’re ready to work with you wherever you are.

 Pricing

 

We understand that organising a wedding can be exxy and do our best to be as transparent as possible when it comes to the pricing of our services. 

Our prices are based on our experience and quality of service. 
When you book with us, you are booking artists that are not only committed to their craft but are also committed to looking after you from beginning to end. You are not another number.
You and your needs matter and we work really hard to realise your visions and sifting through your Pinterest selections to come up with a look that you looove. 

 

There isn’t a certain type of wedding that we specialise in, but it seems that we draw in those with an unconventional approach to their celebration:
*The vintage bride with a modern twist 
*An out of town westival (wedding-festival) a-la Boogie.. 
*Wedding gowns with sneakers. Green velvet blazers with gold sequin gowns. 

Whatever your concept, whatever your vision; no idea is too simple, too wacky, too out there, too themed or too era specific for us. We’re committed to working with you closely, utilising our creativity, intuition and expertise to refine and extract the vision that’s in your noodle.  

Feel free to have a stickybeak through our testimonials to see what other lovely brides have said about their experiences with us. 
If you still have questions you’re welcome to come into the studio for a complimentary consultation or you can send through an email
