Everybody wants to look their best on their wedding day and rightly you should! If there’s one part of it that needs to be left to the experts it’s your hair and makeup. A professional will be able to create the look you want, will ensure it will stay all day and they know what photographs well. But where to start? Choosing a hair and makeup artist can be overwhelming, especially if you aren’t in the industry or are new to getting your hair and makeup done. Makeup counters and hair dressers offer this service, but it isn’t always practical and is much easier to get someone to travel to you on the day.

I may be getting married in Bali (and am lucky enough that my Maid of Honour is a hair and makeup artist), but I am frequently asked for recommendations here in Auckland. So, I’ve put together an Auckland Bridal Hair & Makeup Directory of absolute experts in the field! Each artist I have listed below, I would completely trust on my wedding day. All have slightly different styles, but all create incredibly beautiful work. All are well known, respected professionals in the industry.

If you would like any further recommendations out of all my favourites, if there is a specific look or feature you are looking to accentuate, feel free to message me! The below are in no particular order, enjoy!
