Hair Matters NI
Wedding Hair Specialist
Hi, I'm Nicole. I am a bridal hair specialist based in Northern Ireland.
I have 10+ years experience in the hairdressing industry and have always had a passion for styling hair for weddings and formals. When I started specialising in wedding hair I knew straight away that it wasn't work to me I just loved making people feel and look amazing on their wedding day.
I love to hear every brides unique story about their engagement and meeting new people from makeup artists to photographers on the wedding morning to the bridal party and the bride of course!
I travel Northern Ireland for weddings making it a relaxing morning for brides to get ready in the comfort of their home or venue.
I have a wide range of affordable hair accessories in stock. These are available to try on during hair trials. Accessories available for brides, bridesmaids, flowergirls & mother of the bride/groom.
Information & FAQ's
How far in advance should I book?
My diary is open for 2024 & 2025. Booking in advance is advised as popular dates do book quickly!
Do I need a hair trial?
I do recommend a trial, this gives all brides peace of mind that everything will run smoothly on the wedding morning and you will have nothing to worry about. This also gives me a chance to meet my brides before the wedding morning and see their hair type.
Some brides like to combine their hair trial with a bridal fitting on the same day to see how it looks together!
Where are you based for hair trials?
I do all hair trials from my home studio outside Maghaberry.
When should I get a hair trial?
1-3 months before is perfect! Knowing the style of your dress helps decide on a hair style.
How long does a hair trial last?
I allow 1.5 hours for a bridal trial. If a bride has a few styles she likes this allows time to try them out.
How much is a bridal hair trial?
I have range of affordable hair accessories on display - This is a great way to see what suits your hairstyle best.
Do my bridesmaids all need a trial?
This is personal preference - Some brides may choose one bridesmaid to get a trial if all hair styles are going to be the same. If bridesmaids are picking their own hair styles and are all different, I am also happy to work via pictures.
Do I come to the house/venue on the wedding morning?
Yes I cover Northern Ireland. For a stress free morning you can relax at your house or venue while I travel to you and your bridal party.
How can I secure my booking with you?
A small non refundable deposit secures your wedding date. Information will be sent with your bridal quote when you submit the form above. (This is deducted from your final balance)
Dates will only be secured when a deposit is paid.
How long will each hair style take on the morning?
I allow 45 minutes per person. I like to have bridal party complete 1 hour before leaving for the ceremony this allows time for everyone to get changed, final touch ups for hair & makeup and of course pictures!
Do I fit the veil?
If you wish - YES! I like to fit the veil after you have got dressed before leaving. I will also explain to a member of the bridal party how to remove it if you decide to remove later in the day.
Do I do wedding guests hairs / formal hairstyles?
Yes! I am based in Maghaberry. Prices - £30-£40.
Can I offer a call out service for guests?
Yes - Get in touch for availability & prices.
