I am an experienced makeup artist and hair stylist based in Auckland. Makeup and hair for weddings and photographic shoots is what I specialise in.
My job is not just about applying makeup to a persons face, its all about making them feel confident in the best version of themselves. All the hairstyling and makeup I do is completely tailored to your desires and features. I love seeing your face when you look in the mirror and see your complete perfect look.
Ashley did my makeup for my Friday wedding in January. She did a wonderful job even though we had never met and I had not done a trial. Since I don’t wear a lot of makeup on a regular basis, I relied heavily on her to make the best decision for me. Also she was very nice and professional, and as it was my first experience ever in having makeup professionally applied, I felt very at ease. Everyone at the wedding kept complimenting me on how I looked, and the photographs came out beautifully. I would use Ashley from Head To Toe Styling again for any special occasion and i would recommend her any day. She is very passionate about what she does and she does it well
Since Ashley has been giving me style advice, I have been able to make better garment choices. This means that I not only save money but also dress in a way that makes me look younger. Before I would choose wide loose garments. I thought hid the flaws in my figure, but Ashley has shown me how to hide them by drawing attention to the good features, by wearing items that I would have previously avoided. I also save time when I go shopping because I can narrow down the possibilities without having to try on numerous garments. Her easy to remember advice replays in my mind as I screen the items in the clothing stores.
Ashley identified that I have an autumn complexion which was a revelation to me. I had always liked autumn colours but I never knew that they suited me so well. Now even choosing eye makeup is easier and it just works with my skin tone.
Ashley has a kind and supportive manner that makes you feel comfortable and willing to try something new. The compliments that others give you confirms that her advice is trustworthy. I would recommend her services to anyone who is keen to look their best.
Ashley Collett from Head To Toe Styling did an amazing job with my hair and make up for a recent family shoot! She is professional and calm under pressure, and I loved the way I still looked like me, but only so much better! 🙂 I would recommend Head To Toe Styling to anyone who wants professional hair and make up done for a special occasion ….
