Leanne-Testimonial-claudine-stace-bridal-hair-makeup-wellingtonDear Claudine,

Thank you for making me look absolutely stunning on my wedding day! You were lovely to work with and helped make my day so special. Thank you also to you and Veronica for the amazing work you did for my Mum and bridesmaids - they looked so gorgeous and my Mum didn't have a single regret about trying professional hair and makeup for the first time despite her initial fear. We had so many lovely comments from all our family and friends.

Many Thanks
Leanne and Paul

P.S The makeup lasted all day so well and the temporary lashes worked a treat there was no danger of them falling out!

Vanessa-1-claudine-stace-bridal-hair-makeup-wellingtonClaudine and Sophia were amazing on the day of my wedding - they worked effectively as a team, there was no rushing, panicking or stress; they knew what they were doing and did it amazingly!

We were all ready with plenty of time to spare to take a breather and I think that really set the tone of the day - cruise mode! Having 2 professionals who are so lovely working on us in the morning really set me at ease and I wasn't nervous or stressed about anything the rest of the day. My mum and my bridesmaid looked amazing!! Their makeup stayed on all day and needed no touch ups! My hair lasted in the windy Wellington November day we had and I looked great right up until home time!
Claudine, thank you so much!! I've already been recommending you to the brides to be out there - you were amazing xx.

Cally-testimonialClaudine, thank you so much for doing my hair and makeup for my wedding.  you were so professional and easy going and it made for a fun morning.  I never wear makeup and I was a bit worried about wearing it on the day of the wedding but you did such a great job on it.  I loved it and i really did feel beautiful.  My hair looked amazing as well and both that and the make up stayed perfect all night.

You did an awesome job. I really appreciate it and will be recommending you to anyone I know who is getting married and needs someone to do their hair and makeup.

If you are looking for someone to do your hair and makeup for your wedding go with Claudine. She is a lovely person and her prices are very reasonable.

Thanks again,

Sara-close-2-claudine-stace-bridal-hair-makeup-wellington-400Claudine and her daughter did my beautiful wedding hair and makeup, as well as the hair and makeup of my three bridesmaids.

The makeup was great, just the right amount to accentuate all our good features. My hair held up exceedingly well, even with all the hugs and attention, my hair never faltered.

Not only did she do a fantastic job, but Claudine made the getting ready process fun and stress-free. Our photographer also won awards from our wedding which I can guarantee wouldn't have happened without the skills of Claudine, making me look and feel beautiful.

I would recommend Claudine to any bride wanting quality hair and makeup.

121-smallHi Claudine -

I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you so much for doing the hair and makeup for my wedding. You did an amazing job with everyone and made it so easy for me, being in another country, to organise it. I had a lot of compliments on how beautiful I looked on the day and everyone thought my hair was actually that length.

So thank you, Claudine!

flynn-dan-373-claudine-stace-bridal-hair-makeup-wellingtonI couldn't have been happier with my wedding hair and makeup. My hair was exactly how I wanted it, and it stayed in place all day even with Wellington wind and hours of dancing. My makeup was perfect also. The airbrush foundation looked flawless and I stayed shine free all night. I am really happy with how it all turned out, and Claudine was wonderful to work with.

Thanks so much!

Michelle-and-Cameron0434Hi Claudine,

I want to thank you for doing my bridal party and Mum for my wedding. The make up and hair stayed in the whole day and we never had to reapply any makeup or have our hair touched up at all. Thank you for your great conversation, excellent work and great eye to detail. One of the things that we loved is the passion that you have for your work and how you put your all in to the creations that you created for the wedding day. Thanks again for all your help and for making myself, my mum and my two bridesmaids look amazing.

Kind Regards
Michelle Preston

Crystal-testimonial-photo-bridal-hair-makeup-wellington-400Thank you so much once again for your amazing work on the day, Claudine.

Seeing my photos just reminds me how amazing my hair and make-up were (and also my bridesmaids and mum), you really made me feel like a model for the day Laughing.

I could not have imagined anything more perfect and stunning!

Was great having both you and Jay with us for the day when we were getting ready, it really made the start of our big day feel so special!

Tash Graham

Tash-Graham-Testimonial-smallI got married on the 9 Jan 2010 and Claudine did my hair and make up as well as my 4 bridemaids. Claudine came around to my parents house at 7am which made the preparations alot more fun, less stressful and meant I didn't have to leave the house until it was time to go to the church. I had a trial with Claudine before the wedding this made me at ease as it was one less thing to worry about. Claudine, thank you so much, I felt amazing on the day and all the photos are beautiful. The bridesmaids all looked stunning and I got many comments on the day and still am now about how beautiful we all looked. I have already been asked by soon to be brides who did my hair and make up and I have not hesitated recommending Claudine.

Claudine did my hair and make-up for my wedding in September 2013. She came out to Featherston where I was getting ready with my parents and bridal party. It was so relaxing and made getting really enjoyable and stress free.

Claudine bought a colleague with her to help with the hair-ups and they both did an amazing job on everyone. So many people commented on my hair and I loved the way Claudine did my make-up. It made me feel great and gave me heaps of confidence on my wedding day.

They also completely transformed my mum. She never wears make-up and it was a real treat for her. She looked stunning and it made her day.

I would highly recommend Claudine to anyone for their wedding or for any other occasion.

Thanks Claudine!

Rebekah Hope

Rebekah-Hope-testimonial-shotI live in Melbourne so I thought finding a good makeup and hair artist would be difficult, my first phone call was to Claudine and I booked her over the phone immediately.

When I met Claudine I soon found out that she is is an absolutely fantastic makeup and hair artist who is not only very professional but a fun friendly lady who really does want you to look your very best!!

Not only did she make my mum feel and look 10 years younger but she made all the bridesmaids look absolutely beautiful and made me feel perfect for my wedding day.

The hair was a new design that we made up on the morning of the wedding; it turned out fantastically and the makeup looked stunning in all the pictures. Everyone who has seen the pictures of the day has commented on both the hair and makeup and how lovely it looked.

I highly recommend Claudine for any occasion that you want to feel at your most beautiful. She is perfectionist and passionate about her work which makes her truly one of a kind.

Kylie-Royce-175-1-claudine-stace-wedding-makeup-wellington-400I just wanted to say a massive thank you for 5 Jan. The girls and I loved our hair and make up and we had a day of people telling us how amazing we looked. You guys made us look and feel awesome. The 6am start was so worth it!  

I particularly appreciated your relaxed style on the day and how you had us all ready right on time!  

I would definitely recommend you and your team to others (and actually have already done so!)

Thank you so much for the wonderful job that you did on myself, my mother and my bridal party yesterday. The make up and hair were amazing, and it stayed in right till the end (which ended up being like 8.30pm) hehe

You are an amazing hair and make up artist, and I can't wait for the next time to be dolled up so that I can book you in again!

I almost want to get married all over again just so I can be dolled up again :-) —


Lisa Chandler

I got married on November the 6th, when I saw the wet windy Wellington weather my heart sank - but this did not last for long! Claudine showed up at my Mums place at 7am and launched right into making myself, my mother and three bridesmaids look like we had walked out of a "vogue magazine", (as quoted by a friend!).

I have so much respect for the way Claudine made me feel like she had all the time for us and wanted to make us all perfect!  When she showed me the finishing touches on my hair - I cried - It is just how I imagined I wanted it and never thought my hair could pull it off - but with Claudine's skill, she did it!

The makeup was incredible – my Mum just glowed - she looked 10 years younger and her eyes just "popped" – Claudine just seemed to know how to bring out the best in anyone's features – My bridesmaids were so beautiful and I felt so proud!

There was no way the Wellington weather was any match for Claudine's hair and makeup skills -- it stayed in all day and night looking like it had just been done. And of course I had my teary moments in the church but my makeup stayed put the entire day -- !  I had so many comments on my hair and makeup from people that have seen the photos',  I really did feel like I looked my absolute best on the day! - And with that feeling who can let the weather bother them ?!

Thank You Claudine -

3103I was very lucky to find Claudine on the NZ Wedding Planner website. I sent her an email enquiry on quotes etc. What a pleasant surprise that her charges are very affordable (especially since she comes to you). Claudine had the task of hair and makeup for my daughter and I on our special day. We went for a trial at Claudine’s place when we left I felt confident that I had made the right choice investing in Claudine’s services. We decided to stay in contact via phone or email (if I changed my mind about the hairstyle). On the day Claudine arrived with all the tools she needed to make both Ana and I look and feel beautiful. I was over the moon with how my hair looked and not to mention my makeup. Claudine definitely has "makeup artist" down to an art form. We both enjoyed our hair and makeup experience with Claudine that I will personally recommend Claudine’s services to every lady or man that needs a hair and makeup "guru" for that special day/night. I’m so impressed with her services that I’m seeing her again for a makeup lesson. Without a doubt I will be writing another review about that experience..........
Lisa Thomas-Leeson

As I said in my previous review that I was seeing Claudine for a make-up lesson. We discussed over coffee what sort of budget I had after she checked the makeup I already had. I forgot to mention that she picked up some extra brushes for me. She found a set of six plus a pencil sharpener in a leather case for $55 in Queensgate. It was an enjoyable day for me doing a bit of retail therapy. I felt like I was spending a day at the spa. Thank goodness Claudine was with me as I wouldn’t know where to start. After the shopping spree we came back to my place for my lesson. As I’m writing this review I’m trying to remember everything that I did at the lesson but, for people like me who are not make-up savvy Claudine writes down the order you apply your make-up and, a picture of where everything goes. I say again my day was fun and worth every penny spent. I will be recommending you to ladies looking for a hair and makeup professional. Claudine the service you provide is absolutely fantastic !!!

Wedding-148-060511Kia ora Claudine,

I would like to thank you so very much for all you did for my daughters and I on our special day, April 29th 2011, yes we got married the same day as the royals and what an awesome day it turned out. I was given your name through a friend of ours who you also made up, got in contact with you through email and within days you responded, after I asked you a thousand questions I booked you right away. We did a couple of trial runs, hair and make up, where you worked with my daughter and I to get the look I was wanting, you were so patient and understood what I wanted and what would suit. The one thing I loved was you were willing to come to us anywhere and anytime, you gave us your 100% attention as soon as you walked in to our hotel room, and even went that little bit further by helping my youngest daughter with her hair, you saved our day.

Our hair and make up, what can I say besides it was flawless, natural and absolutely beautiful, loved that the airbrush was light and not too over done, our hair just looked stunning and lasted the whole day and night. We have had so many positive comments about our look that I have recommeded you to all my friends and family, thank you so very much for giving us a beautiful start to our big day, will always cherish what you did.

Mihi and Pete Doile

Paul Michaels Photography 1In April Claudine came to my home to do a Hair & Make-up trial. I was so impressed with how I looked I booked her straight away for my wedding in November. Just having the confidence of knowing what my hair & make-up would look like on the day gave me peace of mind.

On the 7th of November, My Wedding Day, Claudine arrived bright & early to do the Hair & Make-up for myself, my two Sisters (one of them being my Bridesmaid) & my Mother. All four of us were so pleased with Claudine’s work she is very professional & works perfectly to time. It was so nice to have her come to our home rather than us having to run around on the day. During & well after the Wedding my hair & make-up was still just gorgeous, I had many compliments on my special day.

Thank you Claudine for making me look so lovely on my Wedding day!

bridal-hair-makeup-wellington-05078Hi Claudine,

A massive thank you to you for making me feel like the most beautiful bride in the world on my Wedding Day. My husband said I absolutely took his breath away! The look you came up with in the trial really inspired alot of the Wedding theme for us, and I am so happy with the way it all turned out.  

You did such a superb job on me, my bridesmaids and my Mum. We all had comments about how gorgeous we looked, and the flawless look you created really shone through in all the bridal photo's too. Thanks for making the day so stress free. You are super organised and had the timing of getting us all done in time down to perfection.  

I would certainly recommend you to anyone and they can rest assured they are in great hands.

Thanks again!


Bethany Gerling

Bethany_Claudine did hair and makeup for myself, my three bridesmaids and Mum. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. She provided a very professional service with affordable rates. She has a great eye for detail and I was thrilled with how we all turned out!!! Having the trial prior to the wedding was great too as I had no worries on the day.

Thanks heaps Claudine!

Sara-David-353Thank you so much for the amazing job both you and Jay did for our wedding on 16th April. We had an amazing day and we all looked so fantastic thanks to you wonderful ladies!

You were both so relaxed to be with,and in turn made us feel so comfortable and stress free. So many people commented on how fabulous we looked and you made us feel a million dollars! Even though the weather was not on our side, we still looked as great at the end of the night as we did earlier on in the day. That makeup was amazing!

Thank you for bringing Jay along to help with the hair. She took one look at a photo and came out with amazing results. You really are a dream team!
I would suggest both you and Jay to anyone who was looking for hair and makeup artists and would not hesitate to use you again in the future. Thank you so much for the work you put in on our wedding day! You are amazing!

Again, thank you!

Sara Wong xx
