What our customers say about us

Here`s what people are saying about Image Hair Design:


"Shelly was brilliant from start to finish. I was very nervous to trust anyone with my bridal hair style. Not only did Shelly make me feel comfortable and in safe hands, she also created a very flattering soft hairstyle exactly as I had described and that lasted all day and night receiving plenty of compliments throughout the day-highly recommended!!! Thanks for all your help xx"


Faye Jenkins




"Shelly did my wedding hair and all my bridesmaids hair. She did an amazing job and I would highly recommend her. Shelly did exactly what we all wanted and helped us all getting ready. She made us feel at ease and if I do say so myself we all looked beautiful thank you x"


Suzanne Wright




"Shelly did an amazing job to make me look like a princess. From the trial to the actual wedding day, Shelly conducted herself professionally at all times. Every intricate detail I wanted was no problem for Shelly and my hair stayed put all day; even with my crazy dancing! Thank you for working your magic!"


Kelly Read



" just wanted to say thank you for doing mine and my bridesmaids hair for my wedding day. All of our hair looked lovely, and we had many comments on it. From the trial right through to the morning of the wedding, you were friendly and relaxed yet professional. I can’t thank you enough for looking after us so well, Sarah x"


Sarah Krauze




"Loved my wedding hair! Shelly has great ideas but also listens to what you’re after, even when it’s really vague ideas, and is great and bringing it all to life"


Hannah Sweetman



" Shelly worked wonders with my hair for my wedding. I was worried that my own hair wouldn't create the style that i feel in love with. Shelly told me not to worry and she could create the style i loved using a hair piece. I felt very relaxed in her hands. I had a trial and it was perfect. On the day the morning went smoothly and Shelly had everything under control and I didnt have to worry about a thing. I recommend her to all my friends for their wedding hair. Thank you"


Emma Richards




"Shelly did my wedding hair and she did such a perfect job! My mum was so happy with her hair too. Shelly and her sister in law did my 6 bridesmaids hair and they all looked stunning. She did it all for so such a great price. There was no stress or panic, everything was perfect. Thank you."


Heather Howard





"Shelly is simply amazing at hair. Had a wedding to go to and Shelly put my hair up for me last minute (I'm not very organised) and even done in super quick time I had so many compliments on my hair that day and from photos! Would highly recommend Shelly! Xx"





"Shelly was absolutely amazing on my wedding day. I was so lucky for her to be with me the entire day. She did mine and my bridesmaids hair perfectly and (if I can say it) we all looked amazing and felt incredible for the big day. Thankyou so much I will forever look at my photos and smile because you did such a great job xx"





Shelly created an stunning 'updo' for my wedding in July this year. I had no idea my hair could look so thick and beautiful.

I felt amazing and received many compliments during the day for her creation.
She drove an hour to my venue to do both mine and my daughters hair and the whole process was calm, organised and great fun.
I would recommend Shelly to anyone especially a bride.”

Shelly is a one in a million hair stylist, over the years she has created some beautiful and at times wacky hair styles for me when attending parties and functions, and so she was an easy choice when choosing my hair stylist for the most important day of my life; my wedding day. I knew that with her professionalism, expert skills and artistic eye I would look just like the bride I had imagined. About 2-3 months before my wedding Shelly came to my house for a hair trial. She sat with me for over an hour discussing some of the designs I had found, she mirrored the exact style I had chosen, taking the time to make alterations with an easy ‘not a problem’ approach. She had paper work outlining how each member of the bridal party was going to have their hair (me, 2 bridesmaids and two mums), taking particular note of hair accessories and the dresses. I didn’t book my bridesmaids in to have a trial, mainly due to logistics, but this didn’t worry me as Shelley needs little to no practice in creating beautiful hair styles which last the whole day and night. On the wedding day, Shelly arrived with a helper at exactly 9am, she stayed until I had my dress on to make sure I was absolutely happy and to apply a bit more hair spray for good measure. Shelly is natural people person and despite the rushing of people in and out of the bridal suite she remained relaxed and chatty, which I was more than grateful for, my girls remarked afterwards how lovely Shelly was, and how professional her work was.
My hair stayed in position immaculately all day and all the way into the evening, amazing really considering I have naturally very straight and sleek so struggled to hold a curl, but Shelly achieved perfect curls which withstood the whole event. At no point was I in any discomfort from the pins, I have had it before where my head has felt like a pin cushion.
I would recommend Shelly to everyone, she has a brilliant ‘can do’ approach, amazing at her work and doesn’t cost half as much as what some salons and mobile hair dressers cost.”


Emma Phillips




Shelley is amazing!! I had her do my bridal hair a week ago and I couldn’t of been happier!
I got so many compliments on my hair on the day and it stayed perfect from 12pm to 1:30am when I got home.
I would recommend Shelley to any bride to be!! 5*
Thank you for making me feel amazing on one of the most special days of my life xx”

Rosie Braniff



I used Shelly for my wedding day and she was incredible. Both my mum and I had trials before hand. Nothing was too much trouble and Shelly was happy to change little bits to make it exactly as I had imagined. On the wedding morning Shelly made everything seem extremely relaxed and stress free which was exactly what I needed. On the day myself, mum and 4 bridesmaids all had our hair done. Everyone commented how beautiful all of our hair looked all day. My hair didn’t drop at all throughout the day and even the next morning the curls were still going strong!! I can’t thank Shelly enough and would highly recommend her.
