“I was considering doing my bridemaids’ and Ma’s hair myself, but I really wanted to ensure I had a relaxing morning so I could totally enjoy the whole experience of getting ready without being stressed out.

Being so obsessed with Vintage and retro styling, I knew that I wanted someone who shares this love and who could really give the girls the distinctive Vintage style we were after – who better than The Distinctive Dame herself?! Looking through your amazing collection of styles, I knew that you could nail it and boy did you! You were also so helpful through all of our correspondence leading up to the wedding and offered some great suggestions.

You are an absolute gem Margeaux – so warm, friendly and helpful with such exceptional talent. Everyone commented on how lovely you are and how amazing you made them feel.”

“On my wedding day I wanted to feel glamourous but also natural and comfortable. I have a lot of hair and I didn’t want a painful updo. I love vintage styling and I was looking for someone who really understood finger waves and the techniques involved.

I heard about Margeaux through the vintage swing scene so I felt that she would have an authentic understanding of the era. The style we found made me feel absolutely gorgeous but still like me, which was exactly what I wanted. But it wasn’t just the hair that made me feel special, it was the whole experience of working with Margeaux.

It was like walking into a 50s salon and chatting with your best friend over a cuppa. She is sweet, enthusiastic and generous with her time and care. Her technique is fast, gentle and flawless. She *and Evie* made the preparation on the morning a wonderful, pampering experience. It was the perfect start to my special day.
