Get to know Danielle

How long have you been doing hair & makeup?

I’ve been a freelance hair and makeup artist in London for 4 years now and absolutely love my job!  I did my makeup training with ‘BAFTA award winning artist’ Louise Constad, and then went onto work for NARS in Selfridges for a year, gaining experience through assisting other well known artists on high end fashion and editorial shoots.  Tori herself trained me in bridal hair styling, she’s a fabulous teacher! After becoming a member of her Pro Team, I was able to put my skills in hair into practise very quickly and have learnt so much since.

What are your career highlights?

One of my main career highlights was while working for Tori’s Pro Team. A Bride I had previously worked with in the UK, invited me to her home in Delhi, India to do her hair/makeup for an entire week of wedding celebrations. Each event was absolutely breathtaking, with such vibrant colours in the most exotic place. I will never forget getting her ready on her wedding morning- it was such a unique experience.

Why do you love working on weddings?

I love working with Brides because I get to share the most magical morning of someone’s life with them, and often get to hang out with all their family and friends too! I enjoy working under pressure as there’s always a few nerves and anticipation involved and I definitely thrive in that atmosphere.  I enjoy getting to know the current trends in bridal hair and makeup, and while a relaxed more natural look is definitely my style, I look forward to getting to hear your inspiration and ideas for your big day and working with you to create your dream look.

What are your must have products in your kit?

I’m a huge fan of Nars products and absolutely cannot live without their ‘Laguna’ Bronzer- it suits every skin tone! I also adore Laura Mercier’s radiance primer as it helps give that perfect bridal glow.

Fancy name dropping some celebrities or big publications you’ve worked on?

I’ve recently worked with Talia Storm (E4’s Celebs Go Dating) and have also worked on HELLO! Fashion Magazine with lots of familiar faces! One of my highlights from last year was getting to do hair and makeup for the British Editor of Vogue in her hotel room at Claridges! My bridal work has been featured in some top wedding blogs (Style Me Pretty, Magnolia Rouge) and Absolutely Weddings Magazine.

Don't take our word for it...!

"Danielle did my make up for my big day and I couldn't have been happier. Not only was the make up exactly how I wanted it, she is also such a lovely, happy and calming person to have around!  I gave her a brief description of what I wanted and with her personal recommendations and examples of previous work, she created the perfect wedding make up for me. She was also so helpful in giving me make up tips along the way  so I could re-create the look myself in future. She really is such a lovely person and I've recommended her to all my friends.... Thanks Danielle!"

"Danielle was absolutely amazing on my big day! She did both my makeup and hair perfectly, all the guests commented on how natural it looked. It stayed in place even after all the dancing! Mother of the bride hair and make up was stunning, my mum was concerned about looking old with the make up being too heavy but this was not the case at all. Danielle worked her magic and my mum looked so happy and beautiful. She kept me calm whilst I panicked on which hairstyle to have and offered amazing advice on what would work best for me. I was so happy with my decision, thank you so much Danielle! "

"Just to say a HUGE thank you for today Danielle, it was so lovely to meet you and we were so delighted with our hair and make up!"

Danielle, I just wanted to say thank you so much for Friday!! I absolutely loved my hair and make up and felt amazing. The girls all looked absolutely beautiful too!  The make up lasted so well, and it was literally the hottest day ever! It was really nice to have you around in the morning as well as I think you helped me to stay chilled!"

"Danielle, Thank you so much for such kind words - but really, the most thanks goes to you for working your magic. You made me feel like a bride, like I was worthy of the occasion, and I know that is thanks to your artistry, your advice on products and your pep talk on the morning. Thank you a million times!"

"Just about to fly but I just wanted to say a quick but huge thank you for being so wonderful yesterday!  You were fab from start to finish.  I didn't touch up my make up once - it was so fab.  We had the best day ever. Can't quite believe it is all over already."
