Hi, my name is Nichole and I am a professional Hair and Make-Up Artist in Cork City with over 10 years experience in the industry. I work both freelance and from my home studio in Carrigaline, depending on what suits my brides best. 

I specialise in Bridal Hair and Make-Up as I absolutely adore being part of such a wonderful and magical day for my brides and their bridal parties. I use only the best quality products to ensure the best result with both Hair & Make-Up that will carry my brides through from early morning to late that night while still looking flawless! 

Products I use are Nars, Channel, M.A.C, Charlotte Tilbury, Laura Mercier, Estee Lauder, Bobbie Brown, Hour Glass, Bed Head, Schwarzkopf, Tigi.

I pride myself on being punctual, calming and a happy influence on your big day! I truly understand that not every person wants the same hair or make-up look that another may adore. I seek to find the perfect look tailored to YOU and your features and taste and most of all that you are 100% Happy with everything before we finish. Nothing is too much bother or a problem! My priorities are to have you feeling amazing and comfortable in all aspects of your look as this is what you will be looking at for years to come through your videos and/or wedding albums!

I would love to hear from you and help with any queries you may have.

Nichole did all our hair on the morning of my wedding, including the mother of the bride, mother of the groom, and 4 bridesmaids! She was absolutely fantastic from start to finish! All the girls loved their gorgeous hairstyles and she was so professional and kind, warm, empathic, and put all of us at ease straight away making the morning run so smoothly! Nichole was fab from the first hair trial we did and had some excellent suggestions for how to make the hairstyle stand out on the big day. My hair didn’t budge and stayed beautiful until the last sing songs of the night. I would highly reccomend Nichole for your wedding and bridal party she is just brilliant and made me laugh and smile so much on the morning of my wedding which was a joy!!

Nichole did the hair and makeup for my wedding, with a party of 6 for hair and makeup. Nichole was just amazing from the off, Firstly she came so highly recommend to me when I started enquiring about hair and makeup. When I met Nichole for my trial it was honestly like I had known her for years, she was so bubbly and friendly! On the morning of the wedding Nichole was amazing! Everyone was delighted with their hair and makeup. The makeup lasted all day and still looked flawless after 3am and a long night of dancing. The hair was just fab it lasted the wedding and the day 2. Highly recommend Nichole, I can't wait for another event to book her again! ????

Nichole was my hair stylist for my wedding back at the beginning of April. She was an absolute pleasure to work with from the very beginning, so helpful and informative. I booked a trial beforehand which was great to get to know her and have the chats. I gave her a rough idea of what I wanted (I was in two minds between up and down) and she created a style that I could take down for the dancing. I was so thrilled with the result. On the big day, Nichole arrived to my house before half the house was up and fit in seamlessly with the atmosphere of the morning. There was never any rush or stress and we just had such a laugh. We could have stayed there for the day chatting. She also worked on my two bridesmaids and my mum who were all delighted with their styles as they were so complimentary and lasted well into breakfast the next morning! I was just so happy with how my hair turned out and I wish I could do it all again! Thank you so much, Nichole, for transforming me and hope to see you again in the future.

Nichole did a fantastic job, she went above and beyond for me on the day. She was a fantastic presence in the bridal suite with my friends and family. She did a wonderful job on hair and makeup for myself and my 3 bridesmaids and even helped with my moms hair which was a last minute addition! I can't praise her highly enough, she's a very talented hair dresser and make up artist, and a pleasure to have around on the day

Nichole went above and beyond for my special day! From the hair trial to the minute I walked down the aisle she was attentive, honest, and so helpful! She really knows her stuff and made my thin, fine hair look like the cover of a magazine. She continued to show her talent and skill as she style my families vastly different hair. I couldn't recommend her enough, such a kind, caring, and skilled person is exactly who you want for the morning of your wedding ??

We had the pleasure of having Nichole do our hair and makeup for our wedding recently. After 2 postponements we lost our original hair and make up suppliers, luckily Nichole had our new date free and we could not have been happier. She did hair and makeup for two brides, my maid of honour and our two mams and she did an amazing job. She made us feel so at ease and even through a power outage at the hotel she stayed so calm and made sure we didn't loose any time while we waited for the power to be restored ???? We couldn't have been happier with the results, she listened to exactly what each of us wanted and she really delivered! We would highly recommend Nichole to anyone. Thanks so much for everything Nichole Aisling and Mags

Nicole done my hair and make up for my wedding in August this year! I cannot recommend her enough. She is amazing at what she does! ???? I would highly recommend following her on social media too as I honestly felt like I knew her personally from watching her stories and it made me feel very comfortable on the day???? She done my hair and make up exactly to my liking as I am very particular and I even got my wedding lipstick from her recommendation ???? She ensured I always had my glass filled with Prosecco and had music on and allowed plenty of photos in between ???? I felt incredible all day and night and the makeupydidn’t budge!! I would highly recommend her she is some woman ???? ???????? ????

What can I say? Nichole was absolutely brilliant. She arrived early to do hair and makeup for my wedding day and also 2 bridesmaids and my mother. She did not stop until everything was perfect and we were ready to go out the door. There's no request too big and Nichole ensures that you're happy and comfortable with your hair and makeup and most importantly that you feel like yourself. Everything was down to a T. And after hours of celebrating there wasn't a makeup touch up needed or a hair out of place. I cannot put into words how amazing she is at her job. Highly recommended.
Response from Nichole Corcoran Hair and MakeUp
Wow thank you so so much for that amazing review Yvonne, that’s so kind of you I truly appreciate it! Thank you so much for having me be your hair and make up supplier for one of the biggest days of your life and trusting me! I’m so glad everything was perfect for you all

To the amazing Nichole, I really cannot say thank you enough! I booked Nichole for hair and make-up for myself, 2 bridesmaids and my mam last month. She is unbelievably talented, so calm, professional, easy going and just an all round lovely person. She really listens to each individual, we all have our preferences and insecurities, and she tailors the products and the look to you and makes sure that person is completely happy before they get out of the chair. So many people since the wedding have asked for her details which just goes to show how good her work is. Also, we took some photos before our ceremony and it was fairly windy which was not ideal! But Nichole just fixed us all up again in no time, she was like superwoman. I really cannot say enough good things, you are in safe hands with her and I would recommend her to anyone. Nichole thank you for being part of our special day. It was such a pleasure to meet you!! Wishing you all the best :)

Nichole looked after my hair for my wedding day and I would highly recommend her to anyone. She was really responsive beforehand and was kindly offered to come an hour earlier than we had agreed, just so we wouldn't be under pressure on the morning. She managed to figure out how to do my hair exactly the way I wanted it, even though I didn't really know myself! Thank you Nichole!!

Recently got married and Nicole did Makeup and hair for a party of 5. As there was so many of us, Nicole done up a schedule for us which was so handy on the morning. Nicole was so flexible and did a great job. Everyone complemented her work. The morning of the wedding was great fun and Nicole was great at putting me at ease. I would def recommend Nicole to anyone. Great value for money, great flexibility and such a lovely person.

Nichole is truly the best! From start to finish she was amazing! When I described to her what I wanted for my trial (which believe me was very nerdy and yet vague) she completely understood and hit the mark dead on! I couldn't be happier with Nicholes' work. I felt like a princess and my new husband nearly fell down when he first saw me ???? She also made everyone of us in the bridal party feel very comfortable, you'd honestly be forgiven for thinking she's was part of it herself she got on so well ???? And horror of horror I got a big scrape on my leg right before the wedding (I was wearing a tea length dress so EEP!!) and she managed to hide it completely! I can't recommend Nichole enough, I wish I could get married again just yo have her again!! ????????????

Nichole was a treasure to have for our wedding celebration.  She arrived on time and did hair & makeup for 5 of us. We were all so happy with our hair styles, Nichole created exactly what we had all asked for. Our makeup was flawless did not require touching up throughout the night. Nichole is very professional but also so positive & bubbly, a great person to have by your side when the stress starts to come on. I would highly recommend Nichole in the future x

I truly cannot speak highly enough of Nichole. I honestly could not have asked for anyone more professional or talented. Nichole has a gift for reading a person and knowing exactly what they want and what they would be comfortable with. I have never been a person to wear makeup and usually feel not myself when I do wear it. I felt so comfortable. I looked like myself but elevated. The hairstylist was phenomenal. So experienced and helpful. She was able to guide us to styles that would suit everyone, which is a feat in itself as we all have completely different hair types. There were 7 of us and between the two girls, we were all ready in record time. I already recommended Nichole to a friend and will recommend her every single time. I can confidently say she will be my go to for any future event.

I initially booked Nicole for a hair and Makeup package for a friend's wedding however after meeting her and seeing how she works first hand I cancelled my original person and booked Nicole as the Makeup artist for my own wedding. Typical of me, on the morning of the wedding I was still unsure of exactly what I wanted for myself or the girls and asked Nicole what did she think and before I even had time to panic it was sorted. Nicole took control and worked her magic Aswel as being one of the most talented MUA's iv met Nicole just has a fantastic personality and was Soo lovely and calming the morning of and got in with craic and banter we had going! Nicole didn't leave until we were ready to go and everyone got a touch up ! Fantastic, MUA & Hair stylist. Could not recommend Nicole any higher. Thank you soo much ????

I have a client of Nicholes for about 4 years now and I dont know what I would do without her. She is absolutely gifted. She has consistently created amazing hair and makeup looks for every function I have been to. She singlehandedly made my wedding party and the mums look stunning on the day of our wedding on 1st September 2018. She is so dedicated, helpful and kind. She is an amazing person and talented MUA and hair stylist. Based on my wedding makeup, my best friend has booked Nichole for her wedding and another friend has too.
