Brenda is not only highly skilled in hair and make up, as also a lovely person. Since our first contact, everything went well and smooth. On my trial, I didn't know what I wanted, I was overwelmed with so many options/ ideas what was not a problem for her: considering the shape of my face, the coulour of my skin, my personality (after to talk to me just few times), the result was absolutely gorgeous! It almost made me cry when I saw myself at the mirror and all of it (hair and make up) in less than one hour! Brenda is also so kind and careful... She has noticed that I was still anxious (about the wedding in general) and, looking into my eyes, she said "do you trust me? You will be stunning!". That's the confidence that we need in such a special day: she knows what she is doing! She knows how good she is! I left her salon confident that myself and the bridesmaids were in good hands. At the big day, Brenda and Linda were incredible. They are punctual, organized and their calm personality was the key for us to have a lovely time together, free from stress even though they had a big challenge in front of them: hair and make up for 4 bridesmaids, 1 bride and... Some of the girls don't speak English. All in 5 hours. I can't thank them more. I'm really gratefull for have had Brenda and Linda as part of the team in our big day.

Firstly Brenda is such a lovely person, we had so much fun getting ready, and it felt like a friend was doing my hair and make-up.........but a very talented friend. I LOVED both my hair and make up, she totally nailed the look I wanted, and my Bridesmaids and family were also delighted with her. Booking with Brenda was so easy, with one call I had my hair and make up organised for me + 9. She organised for another girl to come help, and everything was just so stress free and easy from the first phone call, to my final touch ups. Gold stars all round for Brenda.

Brenda did both my hair and makeup along with my moms and sisters for my wedding. I am so happy that we booked her! Not only is she professional and talented but she is also a lovely person. I never felt more beautiful then after she did my hair and makeup and that is exactly how a bride should feel! I live in the US and she communicated with me through email and came right to us the day of the wedding. You will not be disappointed if you book your hair and makeup through her- I owe her many thanks for making my special day perfect!

Brenda, did a fantastic job on my hair and makeup for our wedding last week. She also did the hair and makeup on my bridesmaids, my now mother in law and sister in law. She catered to everyone’s needs and used high quality products. She made the experience fun and everyone was very relaxed by the time Brenda was finished. We can’t thank her enough!

Honestly can't recommend Brenda enough. She did hair and make up for my wedding, as soon as I described the look I wanted she knew exactly what to do, and it turned out better than I could have imagined. Both my bridesmaids looked stunning, so natural, everyone complimented us for the day. I really can't thank Brenda enough, she was great craic with us getting ready and kept cool even when the neighbours landed in on top of us! I'd highly recommend Brenda for wedding hair and make up, she even did my eyebrows and lashes a couple of days before and they were fab, I loved them!!!

I have had my hair and Make-up done by Brenda and am always ecstatic with the result when I walk out. I always did my own make up for weddings as no one can cover up my dark circles the way I need them covered, but Brenda got me and listened and now if she is not available to do my make-up for a wedding or a special occasion I will not go anywhere else, I end up just doing it myself as she is the ony one I can trust with my face. Brenda not only does make-up and hair but I have had my eyebrows threaded and tinted with her for the last 12 months and I have to say that I never want to have them done by anyone else ever again, I spent years trying out different salons and either ended up looking like Groucho Marx or had bits of my brows waxed off "by mistake". since I started with Brenda I found I actually have a nice shape and she has enhanced everything and I love them now. I have sent many of my friends to Brenda and will continue to do so as they all love her now too.

Brenda was just brilliant on the day and in the run up to the wedding. Everything she tried on me for my trials was fab. I knew she would do a fantastic job and she did. All the bridesmaid were complimenting her saying it was the nicest makeup they had had. It was great that she is able to do both hair and make up which really saved time and money for me. I would most definetly recommend her for your wedding. Michelle

Brenda did my hair and make up for a wedding I attended recently and I was thrilled with what she had done. She listened to what I wanted but also added an extra twist of her own to it. The results were fab and I received so many compliments on the day. She was friendly yet very professional also. I would defiantly recommend her to anyone and have even booked her for another upcoming event I will be attending. ????

Brenda took care of everything for myself and all 4 of my bridesmaids for our wedding. She was absolutely a pleasure to deal with and very helpful throughout the whole process. I appreciated that a lot as I'm not at all good at make up or hair styles and needed a lot of help and guidance. In the end, you realize how important a role your stylist has in your wedding when you look back on the day and the year beforehand. Brenda was always there to give advice and tried several hair styles and make up ideas, working late into the evening to help fit into my schedule when I needed it. Brenda is also really friendly and has a very calm and relaxed atmosphere in her salon. I always felt very pampered during my appointments :) On the wedding day itself, Brenda definitely added to the fun of the day and helped to make sure I didn't get stressed out that morning and she definitely knows her stuff. My hair and make up was still perfectly in place at 7am the next morning when we finally stopped the party! I can definitely say I have never had perfect make up for 24 hrs before and never will again [unless Brenda does it!!]

Being on the later side of 50, I always leave Brenda looking great and knowing the make up will last the occassion. I would highly recommend Brenda for any occasssion and age group.

Brenda did both hair and make up for my sister (bride), myself and my mother. She was extremely professional and called to the house we were staying in in Anna Carriga in Killaloe which made it so much easier and relaxing on the day. She is extremely friendly and talented so it made the morning much more relaxing and exciting! All of our hair and make up came out beautiful and we have beautiful photographs thanks to Brenda! Brenda also had two lovely assistants on the day who were on hand to help in any way they could. Thanks Brenda for the making a special day so enjoyable and relaxing! Will definitely be calling on you again for any occasion! xx

I went to Brenda to get hair and make up done for a wedding and had previously been to Brenda for hair and make up for a number of events. By my own admission I am a difficult client. I do not trust anyone to do what I want exactly (having had bad experience) and monitor and freak out the whole way through. I can safely say that Brenda always puts me completely at ease, listens to what I want and every time delivers even better than I thought I wanted. She is extremely talented at what she does and I always feel a million dollars and am beaming leaving her fantastic space. A testament to her skills is that in a photo taken at 2am on the night of the wedding, having spent the night dancing, my make up and hair looked as good as it did at 2pm that day when it was applied. I would highly recommend Brenda to any Brides, Bridal parties or guests.

Brenda is such a joy to go and get anything done by here be it hair or make up she is highly skilled in both. I first went to Brenda to get my makeup and hair done for a race day where it was complemented all day, I can honestly say she made me feel a million dollars with her outstanding work but also her kind words and personality. Since than I have got my eye brows done with Brenda and invited a friend to try Brenda. She also has been hooked since. She is the only one we trust now to go near the brows. Brenda has a very calm personality which shines through in all her interactions with her clients and genuinely cares.

I have booked Brenda for weddings and events over the last few years and she has always done an amazing job. She is so talented and professional. For this wedding she did hair and make up for 6 people and left everyone feeling amazing. Our hair and makeup lasted all day. Brenda's flexibility and willingness to travel to us made us feel so relaxed. I have also gone to Brenda for eyebrows and eyelashes, I recently had a full set of mink lashes and cannot wait to do it again. I am very particular about my hair and make up and I feel like I can really trust Brendas instinct and always let her do what she thinks as she has never let me down. I know without a doubt I will book Brenda for my own wedding and that I will not have to worry about a thing after that. Highly recommend.

I was so impressed with her work and was very much put at ease after my first trial, I knew I was on to a winner! I received so many compliments on the day and after Irish dancing and lots of disco dancing into the wee hours my make up and hair never budged. Furthermore making the front cover of a bridal magazine was the proof she certainly had the magic touch!

I would highly recommend Brenda Wall to do your bridal make up. She did my make up and my bridesmaids on the morning of my wedding and I felt absolutely beautiful on the day. She was so calm and patient throughout the morning and made me, as a bride, and my bridal party feel so at ease. She did my make up exactly how I had asked and I can't thank her enough. I have just received my wedding photos from my photographers and I appear so natural and myself.....which it what she strived for on the day. She also obliged me by purchasing my lipstick for the day. She pretty much thought of everything. She is lovely to deal with and so reasonable in price. There's noone else I would go to now for a special ooccasion or just as a treat for a Saturday night out. She's the best. Thanks Brenda for being part of our special day and making me feel so beautiful x

When I was booking my MUA for my wedding I didn't look past Brenda. She ticks every box. She's the ultimate professional. On the morning of the wedding she made everyone feel so relaxed, even though there were a lot of faces to get through. She did a brilliant job, amazing attention to detail. I felt like a million dollars on the day and everyone looked fabulous. And even at the end of the night when everyone should have looked worse for wear we all still looked great.

Brenda is one of the most sought after hairstylist and make-up artists in town, and indeed in the Mid-west region. I have booked her styling services for my own events, and have attended weddings that she has been booked for, and she always receives glowing reviews from everyone be it a guest or bridal party, to the bride herself. My own friend got married back in August 2013, and she looked absolutely stunning for her wedding on Inch Beach, thanks to Brenda's skills with a touch of a brush. For anybody looking to hire a beauty artist for their own special day, Brenda is very personable, fun, professional and well able to interpret the style required for an occasion. Highly recommend her services!

If your looking for a talented make up artist and hairdresser then no need to look any further! Brenda did my make up on my wedding day, she listened to me and immediately made me feel at ease. She granted all my hair and make up wishes. She is courteous, professional and flexible with her time. She was extremely calm under pressure and it was clear from the day I booked my trial that she insists on the highest standards and it's certainly evident in everything she does. I cannot recommend this lady enough. I still go to her to get my hair and make up done 4 years later for all important events I attend!

Firstly, I would like to tell you about my nightmare before my wedding. I was three months pregnant and two days before my wedding I broke out in a rash all over my face. I looked like I had been injured in a fire. The morning of the wedding, I was praying to my mother and God, just to make it better. Brenda arrived and could see how upset I was, she made me laugh and told me not to worry. She was so professional and understanding, she put me at ease within no time. Brenda worked her magic and you could not see a thing. I had worked so hard for a perfect wedding day and the day could have been ruined. Brenda made my wedding day. I have so much to thank her for. My hair and my make-up did not need to be touched up at all; in fact I looked flawless for the day and night. I would highly recommend Brenda to anybody and if you are lucky to have her for your wedding day you will feel and look like a real princess! ?

From the minute I spoke with Brenda at my trial I knew I was in safe hands. As a beauty therapist myself I was only going to entrust my wedding hair and make up to a true professional and that was Brenda! My make up and hair was exactly as I wanted,and even better than I imagined,my mum and sister (who never wear make up) looked fantastic,my mum even looked 10 yrs younger! Brenda was such a pleasure to have around on the morning, even in all the wedding chaos.She is a perfectionist and a credit to her profession x x x
I have been going to Brenda for years to have my brows threaded and hair and makeup styled for special occasions. When it came time to organise hair and makeup for my wedding, I knew I could only trust Brenda with the task. I was thrilled when she agreed to travel to the south of France for my big day. She was expert at applying long-lasting but subtle makeup and neatly styled hair, both of which stayed perfect, even in 38C heat! I would not hesitate to recommend Brenda to any bride; you might still worry about flowers, food and the best-man’s speech, but your hair and makeup will be in very safe hands.
Thank you Brenda for doing a fantastic job on the hair and makeup for my wedding. I was so impressed with your work and received so many compliments. You had such a calming effect on me on the morning of the wedding and that was worth so much to me. You are a true professional and I would highly recommend you for your creativity and attention to detail.
Brenda is an excellent, professional makeup artist; I was worried about scars on my chin from teenage acne and she covered them so well they were invisible. She came into chaos on my wedding day as the excitement was high and took it in her stride. The girls and I loved our make up including my mom. When we got our pictures back from the photographer he even commented that the makeup was brilliant and lasted the day so much so he didn’t have to airbrush any of the pictures.
I would highly recommend Brenda Wall to anyone looking for that perfect, flawless look for their special day. Brenda is a true professional and does exactly what you want. She is such a pleasure to deal with and had us all feeling relaxed. She came to our house the morning of the wedding and had her work cut out with myself , mother and 3 bridesmaids. We were all delighted with the makeup and it lasted well into the early hours of the morning. I was so happy with her that I have continued to get her for other special occasions. I couldn’t recommend her more!
