Claire did our wedding hair and makeup in December at the Swan Hotel In Bibury. She was so friendly and down to earth and did a wonderful job with me and my bridesmaids, I would definitely recommend her! Thank you Claire! xx
Claire came to do hair and make-up for my wedding on 21st Oct at Grittleton House.
Claire was amazing. On the day, She had arrived before us at the venue and was so lovely. Claire did bride/bridesmaids hair and make-up as well as make-up for both mother of bride and groom. She took time to listen to what we all wanted and spent time and care making sure we were all completely happy. The products she uses are gorgeous and we all felt wonderful. Claire happily added in a last minute bridesmaid who wanted make-up too. Claire was friendly, happy and relaxed which helped to keep us calm and relaxed too. Even as the ceremony was approaching and I was began to get a little flappy....Claire was really patient!
I can't thank or recommend Claire enough!
Amazingly talented lady who made me look and feel amazing for my big day! Claire applied my make up for my wedding and after plenty of tears and lots of dancing my make up was still perfect at 1am over 12hours after application. But this lady doesn't only have a talent with make up her personality is beautiful too! Thank you Claire xx
Only lovely things to say about Claire! She did mine, 4 bridesmaids, a Mother of the Bride, Mother of the Groom, sister in law and flower girls hair and make-up for our wedding (no easy feat!) and we all looked perfect! If I could do it all again (I would if I had the money) I would pick you over and over again. Thank you Claire, you were fantastic xxx

Thankyou so much for saturday, we had the most amazing day and it was so much fun getting ready with you.
Claire and her team were great in working with me and the bridesmaids to ensure that everyone felt great on the day. From my initial trial to the day of the wedding I was really confident in Claire's ability to provide me with the look I wanted on my wedding day. Claire's tips were invaluable and I couldn’t be more happy with how both I and the girls looked on the day. All our hair and make up lasted the whole day and night! I would highly recommend Claire to other brides.

We got loads of lovely complements on the day and the hair didn't move out of place even with the best attempts of the wind!!! I am really pleased I found you to do our hair and make-up. If you are thinking of going with Claire for your big day, I would definitely recommend her. Thanks so much. I will send on some pics soon from the day. :-)
I can't thank you enough for all your effort that went in to getting me ready!
We had a wonderful wedding day. Thank you so much for looking after me and the bridal party on Friday. The bridesmaids and the mum's were extremely pleased with their hair and make up. Me and the girls had lots of complements in regard to our hair. You made a potentially stressful morning, stress free and everyone felt relaxed and at ease.
Thank you so much for doing my bridesmaids hair for my wedding on 2 May. They looked amazing. Everyone commented on how lovely they looked. The bridesmaids said you made them feel very relaxed and really enjoyed your company. Thank you again
Thank you so much for doing my hair and Makeup for my wedding last week, it did last until the following morning and for doing my Mums Makeup it took 10 years off her! We had a fantastic day.
Claire i cant say thankyou enough!!! Soooooooo many people commented on my hair and makeup its unreal. You made me feel a million dollars and i'm soooooo grateful. Really I am. Such a lovely friendly person too.xx
Thank you so much for today Claire! You were a star and helped put everyone at ease. I will defo be recommending you to all and sundry xxx
Thanks ever so much Claire for doing our hair and make up 3 weeks ago. We loved our hairstyles and we enjoyed our giggles whilst getting ready. I shall post a few pictures on your facebook page to highlight the fab job you did! Thanks again Nicole
If your thinking of using "Claire Guy Hair and make-up" for your wedding or prom you will be delighted with the results. I only had three weeks to arrange my wedding and Claire was recommended to me by a colleague. From our first phone call Claire was amazing, although we didn't have time on our side
Claire managed to work "her magic"and fit me into her extremely busy schedule.
Right from the start I knew Claire was the right choice, organising a wedding quickly is extremely stressful and Claire instantly put me at ease, she is extremely friendly and down to earth. I didn't really know how I wanted my hair for my big day but at my trial Claire spent time trying different styles and seemed to know the styles that were most flattering for me. The make up Claire uses is amazing its mineral based and works with the different tones in your skin, my make up was stunning and very natural looking. Claire also created amazing hair and make up for both my daughters and my Mum, we were all delighted with the way we looked on the day and we all received lots of great complements especially my Mum who rarely wears make-up, she looked radiant and years younger and was totally thrilled!I especially loved the fact that Claire also sells the products she uses and I was able to buy the lipstick to use throughout the day and evening, every time i wear it now it reminds me of our special day and i will definitely be buying more of the make-up range in the future
-ps ladies the concealer cream Claire uses Is fantastic!
Claire thanks so much for everything you are a very talented lady and I feel privileged that you were able to do my hair and make-up for me on my special day
Claire did an absolutely wonderful job of our hair and make up for my wedding day. I had a trial before hand ( two in fact, as I changed my mind on my hairstyle) and claire was so helpful and accommodating! We discussed ideas and claire offered opinions too which was great. We had myself and my three bridesmaids done and claire was on time and really became a part of our wedding preparations, after seeing how much of a fantastic job claire had done, my bridesmaid who doesn't wear make up wanted hers done and my step mum asked if claire would re-do her make up too! I would wholeheartedly recommend claire to anyone looking for bridal hair and make up or just regular beauty. We are planning on booking a make up lesson in the near future with her! Thanks claire xxx
I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you. The communication before our wedding was brilliant and rehesal went really well and was actually a big wieght of my shoulders. I'm not a girly girl and was quite worried about getting the right person that could actually make me look like a bride. I'm usually outside all the time and a bit of a Tom Boy not really looking after my skin or hair but Claire you really did make me look truely beautiful for my big day. The only downside is that i now look at the photos and think who is that, that my husband is marrying, Not a bad thing though.
So thank you
Andrea & Colin
I am someone who doesn't wear a lot of make up. I let Claire choose the make up and she did a fantastic Job! The make up looked great in the photos and in the flesh. Thank you!
The first thing you notice about Claire is she is easy to talk to and the second is she’s fast and efficient! At nearly 50 I was recently asked to be a bridesmaid and was a little scared about looking too old. I need not have worried because within half an hour at the trial and on the big day she completed a look that I could never have imagined was achievable, especially as I’m a little prone to spots. It made such a difference to my confidence and I had lots of lovely compliments. Great work Claire, I would highly recommend you to anyone! Jill
If you're looking for someone to keep you at ease whilst you're getting ready for your big day then look no further. Claire is really down to earth and attentive to the needs of her clients. Her products are suitable for even sensitive skin and really are comfortable for all day wear.
I know it's been ages since our wedding (sorry for the delay), but I just wanted to say thank you so much for doing our hair and make-up. Myself, my bridesmaids, and the mums absolutely loved what you did. Our make-up looked natural and perfect and lasted the whole day, and I loved our hair.
You were such a friendly and relaxing person to have around before the wedding, and made us feel at ease.
Thank you so much!!!!
I decided to book Claire as i only had 10 weeks until my wedding day, and at such short notice she was so adaptive and amazing! From the moment I met her she felt more like a friend, making me feel comfortable and at ease. I knew instantly I had made the right choice in booking her.
She knew exactly what would suit my skin colour, style and what would photograph perfectly. On the day, she did me so proud and i felt like a princess. As a result of her work I received lots of comments as to how naturally beautiful I looked, and how very beautiful and natural my hair looked. Whilst she had time to meet and understand me, the day of the wedding was her first opportunity to meet my bridesmaid, flower girl and mother in law. Despite this, she made them look equally as beautiful. And i cannot thank you enough for this!!
Overall I would highly recommend you to anyone! you really did do an amazing job to my bridesmaid, flower girl. mother in law and myself!
Thank you so much Claire x x
Hi Claire, i just wanted to say a massive Thank You for my amazing flawless makeup on my wedding day and for all the extra work you put in too! from the word

Thank you so much for everything, you're absolutely fab! Xxx
Thank you so much Claire for the fantastic job that you done on me, my 3 bridesmaid and my mums make up for my wedding, the make up was flawless and it was just perfect. Even on my trial I was in love with my make up, you done an amazing job, even taking my order of service's to the ushers at the church as they forgot to take them, absooutely brilliant and I would and will highly reccomend you to anyway.
The girls, myself and my mum think you done a fantastic job.
Thank you x x
Thank you so much Claire for doing my hair and makeup for my wedding day. Initially I was apprehensive about having someone do my makeup as I have heard a few horror stories but as soon as I met you I knew you would give me a look that suited me and would make me still feel like myself. You helped me so much on the run up to my big day and you gave me great recommendations for skin care and jewellery as well.
On the day I loved my look and you dealt with all of my concerns without effort. My bridesmaid's hair and my Mum's hair was stunning as well as you doing the last minute makeup for one of my bridesmaids which really solved a potential issue on the day!
I'm so pleased I found you as I will definitely think about having my hair and makeup done for future events as well as keeping my lovely shaped eyebrows tidy!
I just wanted to say a huge thanks for doing mine and my 2 bridesmaids hair and make up for my wedding!
I don't generally wear much make up so was a little apprehensive of having too much on as I didn't want to not look like me! You knew exactly what would suit me and kept me looking very natural, the hair and make up lasted right through to the end of the night with out any touch ups or fiddling!
Thanks again Claire, I have already been recommending you to my friends who are getting married soon!
Just wanted to say a big thank you for the faultless hair and make up you did for my vow renewal on 05.07.2013. Myself and both my daughters loved it and we all felt really pampered. I will definately pass on your name to family and friends.
After hearing so many horror stories about make up artists, I decided to book Claire. She was recommended by a friend and from the moment I met her she felt more like a friend, making me feel comfortable and at ease. I knew instantly I had made the right choice in booking her.
She knew exactly what would suit my skin colour, style and what would photograph perfectly. On the day, she transformed me into an English rose (her words not mine ). As a result of her work I received lots of comments as to how naturally beautiful I looked, which was reiterated by our photographer who described me as flawless. Whilst she had time to meet and understand me, the day of the wedding was her first opportunity to meet my bridesmaids. Despite this, she made them look equally as beautiful. To complement her work, the products she used looked and felt great, remaining perfect throughout the day.
Overall I would highly recommend Claire, she is a talented and very genuine person. Book quick as true gems like Claire end up with full diaries very quick.
we had an amazing wedding day in May, thanks to Claire who spent time ensuring the bridal party looked fantstic,
everyone made positive comments about the hair and makeup Claire had done for us all.
Claire took the time to discuss what everyone needed, gave us times she would needs us which saved sitting around and
ensured we were all happy before she left....fantastic service made my day special and I felt very confident and beautiful all day".

What Claire can offer you on your wedding day is an amazing experience and a calming presence whilst getting ready. She was absolutely amazing from my trial where she was very creative, listened to all my ideas and put them together to create an stunning hair style. On my wedding day she was organised, calm and created incredible hair styles for my bridesmaids and the mother of the bride even though they'd not had a trial and then was happy to accommodate my last minute change in hair style. Nothing was too much for Claire. My make-up was outstanding; my hair beautiful which lasted all day and my bridesmaids looked gorgeous. If you want the perfect hair and make-up wedding experience then book Claire as that is what you will get. Thank you once again Claire for adding to my special day.
Thank you so much for helping me with my makeup and nails on my wedding day. As an older bride, it was very reassuring to have the help of such confident person who knew instinctively the right shades to compliment my skin tone and outfit. Claire treats all her 'Ladies' as individuals and nothing is too much trouble for her I would have no hesitation in recommending Claire to anyone, young or more mature, who has
a special occassion to look forward to. She is always ready to give help and advice. Thank you.
Thank you so much for the brilliant job you did on the hair and make up for myself and the rest of my bridal party. You did such a great job with everything, and no task seemed to difficult. We had so many comments on how beautiful the hair looked. And the make up was flawless, perfect and such great quality. I could not have asked for a better person to do the job. On a more personal note, it was so nice to have such a lovely person to spend the morning of my wedding with. Thank you so much for everything you did, you were fantastic. I will defintely be booking you for a makeup party in the not to distant future. Great birthday present for Mum, and a bonus for me to have another go too!
