Laurie was my hair stylist for our wedding on December 31st! She was such a calm and relaxed professional throughout the morning. She did a fabulous job on everyone’s hair and styled everyone exactly as they asked and it held all day! She made sure everyone was happy and checked on everyone again before heading out the door! We really enjoyed having her with us on the morning, as well as the fact that she did a fantastic job! A massive thank you to Laurie and I would definitely recommend her to any bride!! X

I cannot recommend Laurie enough. Amazing job done for my wedding day. Couldn't have been more happy. Professional, Experienced, Approachable lady.She had an early start and had myself and the bridal party done in good time and still waited on to see us off. Super talented and a lovely lady. I have since booked Laurie for a couple of occasions this year as I was truly happy. Thanks Laurie

We had Laurie for our wedding back in December. She was an absolute dream to work with. Laurie did exactly what I wanted with my hair and it didn’t budge for the entire day. I loved how it turned out. My bridesmaids all wanted different styles, she did exactly what they asked for too. She was so chatty and fun on the morning and this helped to keep all the nerves at bay! She waited around until we were all leaving the house, just to make sure she was there for any last minute touch ups that might be needed which I really appreciated too! I’m so glad I booked her for our day!

I could write 1000 words about how great Laurie and her work is which she has done at my wedding day- but of course these words aren't enough. Everything was absolutely perfect - from the first contact ( I am based in Germany) til her on point arriving at my special day. And of course the hair stylings of me and my guests! It was the most perfect preparation ever I really couldn't be in better hands then Laurie's. I am so glad that I decided to ask her for these important part each bride has to go through! I really enjoyed to have her around, she was so so professional. If you ever looking for an artist - choose her if she is available!!! It was the most perfect hair styling I ever had and absolutely like I imagined. For me it was a perfect, natural wedding look and also all of my female guests looked amazing! I highly recommend Laurie to everyone. Greetings from Germany , Caroline

Laurie did mine and my bridal parties hair for my wedding day and from start to finish was an absolute joy to work with. She is fantastic at what she does. Even for my hair trial she got it exactly right and I didn't need to change a thing. The style lasted the night even after all the dancing! I would highly recommend Laurie for any future brides.

Laurie did the hair for me for my wedding in August. She was absolutely brilliant. In the run up to the wedding she made sure I was happy with what I had done in the trial, sent me loads of ideas after the trial to make sure I was 100% happy. On the day of the wedding she made me feel so relaxed, the time flew in as were having so much fun chatting and laughing. I had a second day for my wedding as the first day was family only and again Laurie was so good I loved my hair on both days and was complimented so much on it. I couldn’t have asked for a more professional, friendly and kind person to do my hair and would recommend Laurie to any brides looking for hair for their big day!

Laurie was an absolute pleasure to have around the morning of my wedding. I loved the Hollywood style curls she put in my hair that morning and all of the bridesmaids were in awe of their up-styles that she did in their hair. She is creative and flexible stylist and someone with a fantastic, fun attitude.

Laurie was such a pleasure to work with! Not only is she super talented and made myself, my girls, and my mom look awesome, she is super fun to be around. Such a lovely and laidback person to work with on what is truly a crazy morning of nerves and making sure everyone is ready on time! Speaking of that, she has great time management skills and makes sure everything is running smoothly and on time. She stayed with me until I was ready to walk down the aisle. Thank you again Laurie for bringing my vision for my hair to life, loved working with you! Xx

I would highly recommend her for any bride/bridal parties.

I cannot thank Laurie enough for sharing her skills and talents with us on my wedding day. Laurie did a superb job. My wedding trial with Laurie was great and it was definitely worth doing. Laurie took away any stress or worry I might have had about my hair and I knew my bridesmaids and my mother would be very happy with her too. When you book Laurie you're in safe hands, she's very professional and hugely talented. It was a pleasure to have Laurie with us on the morning of the wedding and there was a lovely relaxed atmosphere. My two bridesmaids, my mother and I were all delighted with our beautiful hair styles.

Laurie was my hair stylist for my wedding. I came from Newfoundland Canada to get married in Ireland with having no connections or knowledge of the area. Her style stuck out to me so I decided to email her, laurie was so professional and prompt with answering all of my questions and I had hundreds. The day of the wedding she arrived bright and early to do myself, my mother, mother in law and 9 bridesmaids she had her hands full and had an assistant accompany her, everyone’s hair was so beautiful and stayed up the whole night. She let me try out a few hair pieces before I decided on the first and she had to put it back in with no complaints whatsoever. she made us all looks absolutely beautiful and I’m so glad she was able to share our day with us !!
Response from Headd's Up

Laurie did my hair for my wedding last Friday Dec 1st and I did have something in particular in mind and I showed her pics, because I was pretty sure it wasn't something many people have asked for in the past. I had a trial with Laurie and it turned out what I thought was perfect, but with Laurie being the perfectionist she is, she practiced so many times between the trial and the wedding and just did such a fantastic job the morning of the wedding, I was so so delighted with it, not to mention the fantastic job she did on all the bridesmaids and flower girls hair too!
Response from Headd's Up
Sarah your such a dote. Thank you so much for this lovely review. Your hair had to be perfect for your special day. I delighted you were happy with it. You made a A stunning bride X

Posted on behalf of Karen The Bride. Wedding August 2017 Newpark Kilkenny Laurie from Headds Up Wedding Hair Specialist was just amazing the morning of the wedding, From Galway to Kilkenny was no problem for Laurie, My hair was exactly what I imagined from my visions and ideas from the trial. It was everything and more thank you just doesn’t seem to be enough. From the trial to wedding morning tweaks the brides maids X4 which all had ideas of there own laurie excelled , she also did the mother of the bride who is extremely picky when it comes to her blow Dry Laurie’s skills really showed and everyone was so happy with there Hairstyles that Day. I highly recommend Laurie From Headds Up Wedding Hair Specialist and look forward to up-style as a guest when passing by Galway to Weddings in the Future
