A Special Occasion is a celebration so it is important that you look and feel fantastic! It is something you will look back on and you will have lasting memories in your photographs. There are many Special Occasions such as Proms, Balls, Graduations, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Wedding Guests, Christmas Parties and I have even had one lady who was meeting the Queen!

I have been running my business Makeovers by Melinda since 2000 as a mobile Make-up Artist & Hairstylist specialising in Proms, Weddings and other Special Occasions. Hair and make-up play an important part in your overall appearance so if you are looking for the ‘wow factor’ you may like some help from a professional.

I have a purpose-built Makeover Studio based at my home in Hedge End where I offer a free consultation (if you would like one) which gives us a chance to meet to talk about what sort of look you would like. I have a portfolio for you to look through which will show you some of my work and you are welcome to bring any photos of make-up examples and/or hairstyles that you like the look of. If you are thinking about using false eyelashes or hair extensions please let me know.

I also offer various beauty treatments to help you prepare for your Special Occasion such as facials or lash and brow treatments etc.

If you would like to know how you will look on the ‘big day’ you may like to book a trial however trials are optional and not always necessary.

We will then arrange the time I need to come to you on the day to professionally apply your make-up and/or style your hair so you look and feel fantastic at your Special Occasion.

I am used to making sure your make-up is applied to stay but lip colours always fade after time so I will give you a little pot with some of your lip colour in then you can top up when you need to.
