Wedding Hair & Make-up Recommendations

WishUponAStar 17 September 2010 8

Hi All,

Have any of you lovely ladies been married in Canberra recently?

Where did you get your hair and make-up done?

Is there any you’d recommend that were fantastic? Or ones I should stay away from?

Thanks in advance for you help! I’m organising my wedding from Sydney and haven’t lived in Canberra for 4 years, so I’m a little out of touch.

What's Your Opinion?

Bentley’s Bridal in Jamison is great – they do Napoleon makeup plus hair. I have been there before going to black-tie functions & then got my wedding hair/makeup done there. It was great & lasted all day – even the bridesmaids were happy! Good luck!

Zoe Barton has been doing makeup for 10 years in Canberra, mostly weddings. Her website is

Unlike makeup stores, she will come to your house. Very professional. Very knowledgeable – has excellent contacts with a range of other wedding service people. Just on this…my recommendation for a photographer (if you can afford him) is Ben from Fusion Photograph.

I think Zoe can do hair also (she has in the past but if not she can make recommendations)…

I got my makeup done at Napoleon in the Canberra Centre- they were fantastic.

I got married in Sydney before I moved to Canberra, but this forum was VERY helpful, for so many things.
There are quite a few Canberra girls on there, you should have no worries getting heaps of recs for hair and make-up

Our friend who came from teh UK to Canberra to get wed last month; had her hair and make-up done at Baileys in the Jammo mall. Fine job they did too.

I jut got married in April and managed to be ucky enough to have friends in both make up and hair… but I will reccomend CY Creations as phographers, Jamison florist for flowers, Roger Thompson as a celbramt, and angelic inspirations to find a dress. Have fun on your beautiful day!!!

I married last year and had my hair and make-up done at La Bimbi Hair Salon in the city; and the attached Soma Day Spa. They are separate businesses, so you get the specialist expertise of both; but located in the same place and you can book for both appointments through La Bimbi.

I had practices of both as well, and they were really supportive. I was particularly nervous about the make-up, as I don’t usually wear a lot and didn’t want that really ‘made-up’ look, but they really understood that.
