- Jodi & Seb

 

"Nadine and David arrived at Dayboro at 6.30am (sorry guys!) to beautify myself, my five bridesmaids, flowergirl, my mum and my nan for my wedding. Nadine and David did a spectacular job. I know that everyone always tells brides they are beautiful, but I had complete strangers (including our limo driver, our photographer and our venue operators) telling me (and the bridesmaids) that I looked amazing, and asking to use my bridesmaids and myself in advertising and promotion material, which is a huge compliment given they see bridal parties all the time. Thanks Nadine and David - you really are rock stars - you made my wedding day a breeze! I couldn't recommend you highly enough!!"

Not only was the hair and makeup perfect and showed up BEAUTIFULLY in the photos, you were all such great people to get along with. Your chilled yet professional manner made us all feel at ease. To be honest, it actually felt like we had known you guys forever - the way we were all chatting away and enjoying the morning!"

"Dear Nadine, I just wanted to write and thank you for the work your team did on my wedding day. Danni was great, I can only imagine the pressure she was under. She did well to prep everyone, and assisted Jemma with makeup really well. Please let her know I appreciate her work, and her attitude. And thank you for sending Jemma, she was a godsend. Everyone's hair was perfect, and I liked mine so much better than either of the trials! She did her best to get us ready as soon as possible. And while we missed out on getting photos with family at home, and photos of the boys waiting at the church, once we got there, it was all forgotten! Her attitude also was great, she got along with everyone really well, and through her professionalism instilled confidence in those who were getting a bit stressed. (which wasn't me!) Please also thank Jemina for the flowers - I hope what ever happened, is much better now. All the best,"

"hi Nadine & the team, we had the best day ever. thank you so much for making me look great and the guests at the wedding too. it was so relaxing to have a hand massage while you were making me up. it truly was the best day of our lives, everything came together, no problems or issues - just everyone having a great time. the weather was perfect for the ceremony, beautiful sunshine and then it rained but stopped again for the photographs so we were very lucky. i was a little worried i'd look like a drowned rat by the time we had the reception but everything held together and i had comments all day saying how beautiful i looked. the makeup was great and everyone that's seen the hair wants the same for their wedding someday :-) thanks again, i loved everything!"

Not to mention I felt so relaxed and un-nerved with the whole experience at the salon. I knew that I was in great hands and completely trusted your judgement. Thank you again to the team! I will never forget my special day and know was a star bride thanks to your help. I will definitely recommend you to others!"

"Nadine and Jemma did the makeup for my wedding party and we were 100% happy! They were not only able to complete the makeup on 5 women in perfect time, but were both really flexible in fitting in with the hairdressers. The makeup jobs were all superb, and came up beautifully in photos (also lasting all day). Nadine and Jemma are also really friendly and personable, which is so important on your 'big day' when nerves are shaky. I would recommend their services to any potential bridal party!"

"Nadine has been my "stylist" for over 16 years now and I have been spreading the word of her talent for just as long. Not only is she the decision maker when it comes to my next appointment, I always look to her for that "special touch" with hair, make-up (and sometimes fashion advice) for all special functions and balls. I am not saying that Nadine likes to be in control all the time, she has given up half of the colour decision to Jemma since she joined the team, and I have never left the salon disappointed. I believe this is mostly due to the personal care and interest the hand picked staff show to their clients, and the acceptance of all personalities. They may so "no" to your request once in a while, and when you trust them with the decision, you will see why.

In 2000 Nadine and her team added their "magic" to my wedding. That same year I joined Flight Centre, and since then not only have 3 of my colleagues chosen Nadine and Rokstar to provide hair and make-up styling for their "Big Day", a group of us now have an unwritten agreed booking with Nadine (and now also Jemma) for our annual company ball .. and the group just keeps growing.

With their commitment to apprentice training and continued staff upskilling and a portfolio of skills and experience so efficient and varied, it is no wonder I will never stop recommending them to friends and clients and why I will always be a friend and advocate of Nadine and the team"


- Tara Stallard[Team Leader : Flight Centre Online Customer Service]

 

"My bridesmaids and I decided to get our hair and make-up done professionally and I highly recommend the service that Nadine and Jemma provide, the three of us looked fantastic. It was accomplished with no stress, lots of laughter, and needless to say a couple of glasses of champagne on the back deck at my house, a perfect relaxed lead up to our special day. My father-in-law said we looked like movie stars!!!! It made me laugh but without Nadine and Jem I highly doubt we would have received such compliments and I thank them very much for their skill and professionalism."

- Kell

 

"I had been going to the salon for a few years to have my hair cut and coloured and was very happy with the services and professionalism of all the staff.When I was engaged I soon discovered that Nadine also did hair and makeup for special occasions. I booked her for my wedding. A close friend of mine had Nadine do her hair and makeup for her wedding and she looked just beautiful. I didn't think twice about asking Nadine to do the same for me.

On the day, Nadine and Jemma came to do my hair and makeup. They arrived on time, and the morning was very laid back and relaxing. Once you're engaged you start to hear horror stories of brides not getting their hair or makeup done in time, none of this happened for me. I was so happy with my makeup. It was just beautiful. My skin looked fantastic in the photos and my friends and family were surprised how natural my makeup looked. Of course my husband, Marshall, said I looked wonderful, beautiful and all those other lovely things men say. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services for any bride to be! Thanks!!"
