I chose Olga to be included in this event, after working with her and personally seeing the beautiful hairstyles she can create, and how beautiful she makes her Brides feel.
Not only that, she's able to do both hair and makeup, meaning there's no need to hire more than one person to style you, or have to figure out timings between a hairdresser and makeup artist.
You can see some of Ellie's work during the video below, as she styled Ellie's hair and makeup beautifully, for her Wedding at Southdowns Manor.
You can also read more below the video, as the wonderful Olga has written the following piece, showing you just why you should choose her to style you on your special day. - Thank you Olga! xo
If you'd like to talk to Olga, I've included her contact details at the end of this piece, or you can leave a comment at the bottom of this page and I'll pass her your email address! 🤍
Olga Markuse - Hampshire Hair Stylist & Makeup Artist
Hello dear Brides, Grooms and everyone! My name is Olga, I'm a wedding hair stylist and makeup artist, based in Hampshire.
First, I would like to thank Lindsay for this lovely opportunity to take part in the Virtual Wedding Fayre. It is such a creative way to communicate in these new circumstances.
So, nice to meet you :) My vision of wedding hair (and makeup) is about making the bride look and feel like herself ‘on a good day’ – fresh, flawless and fascinating.
First of all, you have to feel comfortable wearing your look; My goal is to enhance your best features, to make everyone think: ‘How beautiful she is!’, not ‘How beautiful her makeup and hair is.’
Over the years, I have worked on more than 300 weddings, however, it is important to me to provide a personal approach to every Bride I work with. It is an exciting duty – to spend a few hours of one of the most important days in your life with you.
Although the results are essential, the process must be easy and enjoyable too. No more words, please have a look and my portfolio and feel free to get in touch for more information.
How many Bridesmaids can you style on the morning of the Wedding, as well as the Bride?
I can style up to 6-8 people's hair or do both hair and makeup for up to 3-4 people. However, I have a great team of professionals who help me on bigger parties.
Your Instagram Handle is Bridal_Hairstylist - Do you do just hair, or do you offer other services too?
I do both hair and makeup.
How far can you travel? Can you do international weddings?
I am generally travelling 50-60 miles from Winchester, although sometimes I go further. I am happy to travel abroad too.
What is the one thing every Bride or Groom should have on hand throughout the day?
An umbrella :)
What is your cancellation/postponement policy during this difficult time?
It is so frustrating that so many couples are having to postpone their weddings. I am trying to do everything I can to make this process easier for my brides: most of my clients are re-booked with me or one of my experienced and talented colleagues for their new dates.
Thank you Olga, for getting involved in this Event! xo
