WHO AM I

My name is Leigh. Contrary to popular belief (baby-faced, small person), I am 26 years of age. I live in Stanley, Co Durham with my husband and our Miniature Dachshund! Originally from West Yorkshire, I relocated to the North East in Autumn 2019.

I’ve always been a very creative person. I loved everything artsy at school and went on to study Dance and Performing Arts at college. I’ve had a love of interior design since well before I owned my own home (my Sims’ houses were epic) and I’ve dabbled in almost every craft possible. There’s always been a desire in me to work for myself, to run my own business, but I never quite found the way to bring that dream to life.

After almost 8 years working in Customer Service roles, I decided it was time to make big changes in my life and I enrolled on a course to study Hair & Makeup Artistry.

I first remember showing a real interest in beauty when my Mum bought the ‘Ultimate Makeup & Beauty Book’ by Mary Quant. Growing up, I had a lot of admiration for the beautiful woman around me.

For my Mum, who was always trying out new beauty tricks and products, and my Grandma who to this day can still perfectly apply her lipstick without a mirror.

After years of experimenting with my own hair & makeup, I really fell in love with the art during my course. I soon left my full time job and set to work creating the website you’re reading from today. Before long I began beautifying my own clients and the rest is history. Suffice to say, I have never looked back.

WHAT I DO

Specialising in romantic, bohemian hair styling and feature-enhancing makeup, I provide hair & makeup services to modern brides and their bridal tribes. Available throughout Durham, Tyne & Wear and Northumberland, no wedding is too big or too small.

Although weddings are a huge part of my business, I also welcome prom and special occasion clients into my “pinterest-worthy” home studio. I am a strong believer that everyone deserves to have the pleasure of being made up at least once! If you’re planning an occasion that is special to you, why not treat yourself to a bit of pampering? Get in touch – I’d love to hear from you.

I have always loved how makeup makes me feel, the confidence it gives me and the way it can totally transform an individual. MUBYLEIGH – Hair & Makeup Artist was created to share that feeling with as many others as possible. In 2020, I plan to add a range of beauty treatments to my studio services, including lash, brow and nail treatments. If this is something you’d be interested in, please let me know.

“I really have to thank Leigh for how amazing my hair and make up looked on my wedding day! Leigh is amazing at what she does, she listened to what I wanted and transformed my ideas into real life.”

WHY CHOOSE ME

My vision is to help each of my brides feel like the absolute best version of themselves, while still feeling like themselves! So, whether you’re used to a natural glow or a super glam glow-up, I’ll create a look that leaves you looking totally flawless and beaming with confidence.

You’ll see from my reviews that one thing my brides regularly rave about is my “calming influence”. After getting married myself in 2019 and stepping into the shoes of a bride, I have gained an even greater appreciation of the wedding planning process and the importance of your special day. Weddings are naturally full of emotions, and often some nerves, so I make it my aim to ensure the process is as relaxed and care-free as possible. When it comes to the morning of your wedding, it is finally your time to sit back and relax – you’re in good hands.

Once your hair and makeup is done, I’ll be sticking around to secure veils, provide touch-ups and take a few snapshots. I’m also a pretty dab hand at attaching buttonholes and buttoning up dresses (I’m pretty much an expert by now!) and more than happy to assist where needed. I’ll never rush off once my ‘job’ is done. I will be there for you every step of the way, until you’re ready to head out of the door.

“From start to finish, Leigh was there whenever I needed to query something or ask for advice. On the morning of my wedding, Leigh was part of the bridal tribe – she has such a calming influence and is such a lovely person to be around.
