KIND WORDS

Leigh and Megan did mine and my bridal party's hair and makeup for our wedding this summer. The service provided from them was up and above anything we could have wished for! From having my trial, I changed my mind on bits and Leigh was so helpful and understanding throughout and gave me all the confidence that I knew it would be perfect on the day and it was!! All our hair and makeups looked amazing and we had so many lovely comments 🙂 They were both so friendly and made the morning so enjoyable aswell as helping us with so many other 'weddingy' things which they didn't need to do. I couldn't recommend them enough!

MUBYLEIGH did the hair and makeup for myself and my 4 bridesmaids for my wedding in September. I can't recommend them strongly enough. My trial was really chilled, the studio is a lovely setting and Leigh was patient with me whilst we tried some modifications. Not only did they make me feel fantastic, they were a real joy to have around on the morning of the wedding. They were never in the way and always being helpful and a calming influence. They truly went over and beyond, herding wasps, helping with a dress malfunction and even carrying my train through the rain! I'm so pleased I found Leigh, she was one of the best decisions I made about our special day. I really trusted that they would make me and my girls look our best selves - and they really did deliver! Thank you so much for making me feel glam but relaxed, classy but a bit boho and just genuinely the best version of Me. So lovely to have had you both as part of our day 🙂

I would highly recommend Leigh. Last month I was a bridesmaid for my best friend. The whole experience; makeup/hair trial and on the day of the wedding was very professional.Leigh invited us over for a makeup trial, she was so friendly and welcoming and we felt relaxed from start to finish.On the day of the wedding Leigh and her team were so organised, from arriving on time to timetables when each person had to be in a seat.Thank you once again Leigh for making us looking beautiful x

Thank you Leigh for doing my make-up and styling my hair for my wedding day. It was a pleasant experience from start to finish and I was getting compliments all day. Megan was also brilliant at doing the make-up for the girls and they all loved the results and the photographs that were taken on the day. The make up lasted all day and still looked fantastic at the end of the evening. They were both very professional, organised and really accommodating. Leigh also helped me find my bouquet of flowers, which I really appreciate. I would highly recommend both her and Megan in the future to anyone that needs make-up services.

Last month myself and my bridesmaids had the pleasure of Leigh and Megan making us look beautiful for my wedding. My whole experience with them from my initial enquiry to the day of my wedding was fantastic - the perfect balance of friendly and professional.On the lead up to my wedding day Leigh always got back to any of my questions very quickly, and was extremely helpful in giving tips on how to prepare for my trial and big day.At my makeup trial Leigh listened carefully to what hairstyle and makeup I was looking for and created my perfect wedding day look. She was so welcoming, friendly and easy to talk to.On the day of my wedding Leigh and Megan arrived right on time. They got on with myself and my bridesmaids so well, nothing felt forced and everyone commented on how lovely they were. Their calm and cool demeanor is exactly what you need just hours before you walk down the aisle. Our hair and makeup looked amazing and lasted all day.Aside from the fantastic hair and makeup, the best thing about having them there was the support they gave in the final hour before I walked down the aisle. Rather than packing up and leaving once our looks were completed, they stayed and helped us move our bags over to the bridal suite; they also helped me with final touches such as jewellery and fitting my veil.I can't express how grateful I am for all their support, and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat!Thanks so much girls!Emma xx

Now where to start! Leigh and Megan worked together for hair styling and makeup for my wedding - a bride and 4 bridesmaids and mother of the bride. The talent between them was phenomenal as well as their time management and professionalism. During the course of the morning it just felt like having 2 more members of a girl squad! It felt as if we’d all know one another for years! The makeup was absolute perfection and they listened to what each persons preference was in terms of the cover, the finish and the overall look that we were going for. The artistry that went into the hair was amazing! It was so different for each of us, different colours, hair lengths, hair up, hair down.. Leigh absolutely nailed it! Once we were in our dresses and all ready we just couldn’t believe how well all of the looks came together or how good we all looked! On many occasions looking in the mirror we all just said to each other wow! They went over and beyond and helped out with all kinds of bits and bobs in the morning too! As a bride it was honestly the best experience, at one point Leigh was doing my lipstick and she asked are you ok, your lips quivering, I burst out laughing and said yeah it’s because I’m trying not to smile! That pretty much sums it all up - we couldn’t wipe the smiles from our faces! Thank you for making the morning of my wedding day perfect and beyond! X

I couldn't have asked for a better hair and makeup artist for my wedding, Leigh and the Megans were fantastic on the day and had a very early start, they did bride, bridesmaids, mums and aunties hair and makeup and we all looked stunning. They are such professionals and fitted in perfectly on the wedding morning and added to such a lovely, calm atmosphere. Leigh was so kind and helpful from the first message, I can't recommend enough! 💕

I can't recommend Leigh enough for wedding hair and make up, she's incredible!I absolutely loved the beautiful boho style she created for my hair which lasted perfectly and looks fab in all the photos. Before my trial I was a bit nervous about having my make up done (as when I've had it done by make up artists previously it's been too much for me), but Leigh's style is spot on and she listened to what I liked and didn't like. My make up lasted amazingly well for the 12 hours of my wedding day and I got so many compliments. Couldn’t be happier with it! :)Lastly I just want to say how lovely Leigh is to work with- she's organised, professional, kind and calm and when I was feeling nervous on the morning of the wedding she was amazing at keeping me calm and distracted. Leigh was also fab with my little 4yr old bridesmaid, chatting to her and making her feel special.Definitely go ahead and book Leigh for your big day! 🙂

I am so happy Leigh was available for our wedding, she was incredible and I could not recommend her enough to anyone looking for an amazing make -up artist. I don't wear much make- up and was a little nervous for the trial but Leigh was so friendly and soon put me at ease. Her make- up looked amazing and I was so excited for her to recreate the look and do the make-up for my bridesmaids on the day! Leigh kept us all calm on the morning and it was such a treat for us all to have our make up done. Everyone was so happy with it and the eyelashes were a big hit! Thank you so much Leigh ❤

Lovely Leigh was incredible from start to finish. She was incredibly approachable and professional when initially emailing and finding out about her services (and so patient when I messed up the numbers of girls who wanted to get their hair done!). During the trial, she was so approachable, friendly and just an all round lovely person to be around! If you're lucky, Ruby (best dog in NE) will sit on your lap and chill with you while Leigh makes you beautiful. She was so reassuring the whole time and really listened to what you wanted while making really helpful suggestions. On the big day, she and her lovely friend Megan arrived super early so all my bridesmaids could get their hair and make up done too. All of my friends LOVED their beautiful hair and makeup and I know I did too.If you are looking for an incredibly talented, professional, kind, patient and approachable hair and make up artist, please do not look any further.

I could not recommend Leigh highly enough. I booked her to do hair and make up for myself and for my bridal party. She was so friendly and professional from the start. The whole process from the trial to the wedding day was seamless and stress free. The morning of the wedding was so well organised and she even managed to fix my shoes to stop them falling off! I was so happy with all of our hair and make up. It was all absolutely perfect. Leigh, Megan and Sian were brilliant to have around on the morning, calming nerves and having a laugh with us all. Thank you so much! Melissa x

I booked Leigh to do mine and my bridesmaid hair and make up. From booking through to the big day Leigh was so helpful and professional. She made sure to check in during Covid and was flexible to rearrange to our new date and venue.On the day Leigh was an absolute super star she made both my sister and I feel at ease and we were SO happy with out hair and makeup - she was there until I walked down the aisle making sure we looked perfect and providing suncream which we all forgot!She went above and beyond and helped with my little girl whilst we got dressed, making her feel like a little princess (she is still asking for sparkles to be put on haha).I really can't thank her enough and would highly recommend her to any brides to be!

I was lucky enough to book Leigh for my wedding. From start to finish the whole experience was amazing. The communication around covid lockdowns and rearranging was simple and efficient. My trial went lovely, Leigh made me feel like a supermodel. Not only that she also went into the little details getting to know me and what I liked. It was clear to see that Leigh took the her responsibilities as a covid secure make up artist seriously also taking appropriate precautions. My little girl who has SEN felt at home with Leigh, even if she did play the same song very high pitched 200x on the morning of the wedding!! Absolutely everyone on the day commented on how amazing my hair and make up looked and I really can't thank her enough. I was dreading photos as I'm not very photogenic but with Leigh's hair and make up I looked and felt amazing!

I never liked having my makeup done before having Leigh do it. She is amazing! You’re made to feel the best version of yourself while still feeling like your not caked in makeup. Her light, natural makeup along with her stunning hair styles will have you feeling like the most beautiful bride on your wedding day. I won’t go to anyone else after using Leigh.

Leigh was an absolute joy to work with. She was professional and friendly at all times even with so much uncertainty surrounding our lockdown wedding. I was able to send her hair and makeup ideas I found on instagram etc which she was very receptive to. She 100% got the look I was going for an carried it out perfectly. I wanted a very natural look and she carried this out so well.She is incredibly talented, my makeup was flawless (I will never be able to re-create those brows as long as I live) and she was able to change up my hair style at super short notice. My curls managed to survive a photoshoot in the freezing rain with no umbrella which is really testament to how good she is! I think Leigh is ideal for brides who know exactly what they want as she will work with you to create your perfect look, as well as brides who are happy to let the hair and makeup artist take control as she is super talented and really knows how to make you look gorgeous.She was very flexible and accommodating with my ever changing wedding date and despite obviously going through a really tough time herself this year as a wedding supplier, she was so lovely and sympathetic when my wedding was postponed multiple times. I thoroughly recommend her.

I contracted Leigh to do my hair and makeup for my microwedding on 23rd October 2020 in Newcastle. Her hairstyling is off the charts. Leigh is so sweet and considerate of looks I wanted - while delivering her own classic subtle style to the look. I couldn't have picked a better person to do my wedding look. It was perfect!

Leigh did my hair and make up for my wedding last weekend. From the first contact she was professional, ensuring that all the COVID guidelines were followed and making me feel completely safe and at ease. I don't usually wear a lot of make up and so the trial was really helpful in seeing what suited me and what would work on the day, her home studio is also beautiful! In the middle of working full time, moving house and planning a wedding in a pandemic, the trial was the most relaxed I had felt in weeks which was perfect.On the wedding morning and due to COVID, there was only me and my maid of honour getting ready together. Leigh fitted right in, she was able to do my maid of honours hair at short notice and also was so much fun to be around on the morning of the wedding. She stayed around until we were ready to leave, helping with finishing touches, chatting to the photographer and even helping us with our bags. The hair and make up was exactly how I wanted it, lasted all day and received so many compliments.I really could not recommend her enough!

Leigh did both my bridesmaid's and my hair and make up for my wedding and I was so happy with the outcome! She's so nice and friendly and more importantly, she listened to what I wanted at the trial and it couldn't have been more perfect on the day! Definitely would recommend her.

I was looking for someone local to do my hair and make up for a party I was attending and Leigh stood out the most because of her great reviews. I wasn’t disappointed, she understood exactly what I wanted and made a fantastic job of my hair and make up, I got lots of compliments on the night aswell. I will definitely be using Leigh again for my next special occasion, thanks again!

Leigh was exceptional in every aspect. She was very professional from the day I contacted her, while also being very friendly and supportive, both before and on the day. I am so glad I chose her and would definitely call her again if I needed my makeup done for an event. She was very flexible and was very accommodating despite one girl not speaking any English. I would definitely recommend her! Thank you Leigh! 🙂

Last Saturday was one the biggest days of my life and 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, listening to what I wanted and transforming my idea into real life. I wouldn’t have had the look I had in my head with out her. 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 such a lovely person to be around. Me, my bridesmaids, flower girl and mums all looked incredible! She didn’t stop there when we was all ready she ensured finishing touches were done and didn’t let us go until we were perfect! I can’t thank her enough and I would highly recommend you book in with Leigh for any event!!!! Leigh you are amazing and deserve the highest praise ♥️♥️♥️

I really can’t thank Leigh enough for the hair and makeup she did for me for a black tie event recently. I’d searched online and came across some really good reviews about her work and was definitely not disappointed! She really listened to exactly what I wanted. Both hair and makeup lasted so well and I wouldn’t think twice about booking Leigh for any future events. Friendly, knowledgable and amazing at what she does. Thanks Leigh! 🙂

Leigh did my makeup for a party a while ago. I don't usually wear much (any!) makeup, so can feel uncomfortable having my makeup done professionally and worry about overdoing it. I loved the look Leigh created and would definitely ask her to do my makeup again. I would also recommend checking her Instagram and Facebook pages for makeup and hair inspiration, as all the photos are gorgeous 🙂 x

Wedding 13th September, bride plus 4 bridesmaids. Leigh was absolutely amazing, both on the trial day and the wedding Day. We had the trial day and spoke about what would suit me both makeup and hair, then went through options and decided on a final style which was exactly what I wanted. There was no problems with communications up to the big day. On the wedding day she arrived promptly, set up with an assistant who was brilliant as well. Leigh has the right amount of balance with being professional but relaxed at the same time. She spoke to all my bridal party and really made them feel comfortable. Not a bad word to say at all and only praise from everyone. The final look for both hair and makeup was beautiful. Honestly I would highly recommend her. The wedding morning can be stressful but she did a terrific job and I couldn’t thank her more. Very much recommend.

Leigh did my makeup for prom back in June. I had never had my makeup done before and it was the best experience I could have asked for, she was so lovely, welcoming and the makeup and hair was fantastic and looked stunning. I would definitely recommend her to anybody as she creates natural but flawless looks all round.

I asked Leigh to work with me on a styled wedding photoshoot that I organised, and she went above and beyond in every aspect on the day. Not only did she arrive before me, she got to work straight away and was already effortlessly working to create the perfect bridal look. Leigh also came out on location with us to the Peak District and created a second look, literally in the middle of nowhere in a windswept field when it was 30 degrees!If you're a bride I honestly can't reccomend Leigh enough, she is super friendly, very professional and incredibly talented - exactly the kind of person you need to make your wedding day extra special!I hope we get to work again together soon, as it was an absolute pleasure!

After searching for a Make Up Artist in the area Leigh stood out the most. She was absolutely fantastic and understood my make up needs. It was my first time getting my make up done and it was above and beyond what I ever expected. Certainly made me feel pampered and beautiful for my graduation day! Would highly recommend her for any special occasion. Thank you Leigh!!

I want to start by saying that I love makeup. I love doing my own makeup and was very nervous about giving someone else that responsibility. However, having a baby 9 months ago had left me feeling less than glamorous, so in the hope of making myself feel special, I decided to book Leigh in to give me a makeover for a special event.Leigh is an incredibly talented makeup artist and just a wonderful human being. From the start, I felt completely at ease with her. Leigh’s skill and professionalism was really impressive - she listened so carefully to my likes and dislikes, which ensured that she created the exact look that I wanted. The end result far surpassed all my hopes and expectations!My makeup lasted perfectly throughout the day/night and I didn’t have to worry about touching it up at all. I’m delighted that I chose Leigh as my makeup artist and would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to look flawless for a special occasion. Thanks so much for all your hard work, Leigh!
