Testimonials

Dear San, I wanted to let you know how happy I was with my bridal hair and makeup that you done for my wedding on 3rd September 2011. On searching high and low and having many trials with other people, no one could put my hair up the way I wanted. I then came across your site, emailed you and we went from there.

For my first consultation, the overall look was what I was looking for and I booked you for my wedding. A month before the wedding, I arranged another trial with you to discuss new ideas and a lighter makeup look and came to your studio. The 2nd trial was great and everything I wanted.

On the day of my wedding you arrived and everything was perfect, the whole process took approx 3 hours and I felt amazing. With photographers, videographers, people and bridesmaids in and out of my room, you took it all in your stride and got on with your job.

As you know I was a hairdresser for 14 years so it was very hard to trust and find someone who could put my hair up how I wanted, but you done just that. From start to finish, you were very professional in every way. I really liked the fact you were responsive on email, this gave me great confidence.

I can’t thank or recommend you enough to new customers, my hair lasted all night and eventually was taken out at 4.30am when we finished partying! And my make up didn’t move.

Please feel free to pass my mobile number and email onto customers should they wish to contact me and I will be more than happy to talk to them and tell them how great you are.

Many many thanks

–Mrs Maria Fleming, Bridal hair and makeup Shefford, Bedfordshire

A confident and dynamic makeup artist, adapted beautifully for all our requirements for the Viraaj photohoot. All the work from this shoot can be found on the Viraaj website.

I would love to work with San again.

–Hema Thakorlal, Viraaj London, Asian and Indian Bridal Wear

I went to San for my trial and she did a full consultation, listened to what I wanted, let me show her pictures and only used products which were ok for my very sensitive skin. On the day for both my events she was early, did my hair and makeup amazingly and my now husband was stunned. I had 4 different looks and each was unique, bold and exactly what I had asked for. I couldn’t recommend her more highly. Thanks for everything – Love Anjlee xxxx

–Sheena Anjlee Tanna, Asian bridal makeup St Albans and Asian bridal makeup Northampton, Whittlebury Hall

–Husna Accessorize, Fashion and media make up Bradford, West Yorkshire

San Mehra is a very sweet and talented lady who is destined for great things. When I first saw San’s work, I immediately booked a trial and went to her studio in Luton. She is the most professional Asian makeup artist I’ve met, the trial helped me make all the big decisions about the looks for my events. San created different hairstyles for each function and recommended the ones that suited my face shape. San is definitely up there as one of the best Asian makeup artist in the country.

–Annie Rafiq, Indian bridal makeup Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

Hi San, I just want to say thank you so much for providing your Asian bridal makeup and hair services on my Walima in September 2012. I chose you because I wanted something special for my big day and I knew you’d be able to make me look amazing. I was so nervous on my wedding day but when I walked into the venue, everything went perfectly and everyone complimented me on how beautiful I looked. You made me look fairer than I am normally in a way that it looked natural, not powdery or cakey. I looked flawless and the hair and makeup lasted all night. I’m so happy I chose you, thanks again San! xx

–Nasreen Ahmed, Asian bridal makeup and hair Luton, Bedfordshire

–Nesha Mistry, Asian Bridal hair and makeup Milton Keynes / Watford, Buckinghamshire / Hertfordshire (Hare Krishna Temple)

Hi San, hope you are well. Sorry didnt get a chance to say goodbye, got busy with the photographer who wanted to take as many photos as he could before we went to the Gurdwara! I was so happy with the look and everybody loved it. You fixed the chunni on so well that at some point I actually thought the chunni had fallen off whereas in fact it hadnt! The chunni felt so light, I hardly felt it. I cant thank you enough for pinning it so elegantly. The hair and makeup both lasted til the early hours. You achieved exactly what I wanted and indeed it was very regal! You did a fantastic job San and thanks once again – it was great to have met you and Im so glad I choose you to be part of one of the most important days of my life. Take care and we will speak soon.”

–Raj Kaur, Asian Bridal Makeup and Hair Eltham, South London

Hi San! Just want to say I had a really lovely Walima and everyone absolutely loved the outfit, the hair and makeup sooo much! I received so many compliments and I felt like a celebrity! Thank you sooo much for making my wedding day and Walima so special! I really wish you well and all the best for the future! xxx”

–Shamilah Rasul, Asian Bridal Makeup and Hair, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire and Asian bridal makeup and hair, Ilford, London

My hair and makeup was amazing and I would like to thank you so much for giving me my perfect look.

I will definitely leave a testimonial on your website and will recommend you to anyone I know who is looking for someone for bridal makeup and hair.”

–Rima Panchal, Asian Bridal Makeup and Hair, Wellingborough, Northampton

Hi San, a big thank you for your services, you did a fantastic job on me, my sisters and my mum. I knew after my trial that you were the one! I was a glowing bride on the day thanks to you, my skin looked amazing and the eye makeup was just stunning, love your style! Thank you again, please stay in touch!

–Jas Gill, Asian bridal makeup Northampton

Hi San, just wanted to thank you for yesterday, makeup / hair looked super great and lasted all day xxxx

–Bhavini Lad, Asian bridal makeup Shendish Manor, Hemel Hempstead Hertfordshire

San was recommended to me by my sister and I cannot thank her enough for this recommendation. During my trial, San really got to grips with my taste in make up, my general style and character and I left the studio feeling really happy and comfortable booking San as the bridal makeup artist for my big day. On the day, San arrived at the venue early and nothing was too much for her. I felt really relaxed around San and felt like I’d known her for ages. With regard to my bridal hair and makeup, it was amazing. I have had professional make up applied before, but nothing as good as this. My mum and sister were also very pleased with their hair and makeup. They looked stunning. All three of us received so many compliments, we felt great! Thank you so much for everything San, I wish you all the best.”

–Rakhee Kotecha, Asian Bridal hair and makeup Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire (Shendish Manor)

I would like to thank you for your professionalism and complete artistic talent for two very important occassions. You totally surpassed my expectations and I received amazing comments, many people thought I looked like a model! You really listened to what I wanted to achieve and created a look that I was a happy and comfortable with. I felt your skills and our mutual understanding left me feeling completely at ease. You are really talented at both hair and makeup and the look you created really complemented the outfits that I had designed. I was very lucky to have you and I will certainly be recommending you to anyone I know getting married or attending a special occasion. I am already looking forward to the next occasion so I can have the experience all over again.

I felt like a supermodel, thank you again X

–Roxanna Maani, Hair and makeup Luton / Dunstable, Bedfordshire

I didn’t get time to arrange a trial as I planned the entire wedding abroad, but you were such a lucky find! Thank you for taking time to discuss ideas over the phone and via email, you really kept me at ease. And on the day, you certainly lived up to my expectations! My partner and his family couldn’t stop smiling when they saw me walk in, my husband said I looked mesmerizing! It was a hectic morning, but you stayed cool, didn’t seem to ever get distracted and you focused on me the whole time which made me feel like a princess! I’m looking forward to seeing you work your magic on my sister next year. Thank you again!

–Farah Patel, Asian bridal makeup London

San is a very talented makeup artist and consummate professional. At the makeup trial she listened to exactly what I wanted and created a look that matched my ideas. On the day of the wedding, she was very calm and relaxing to have around which is just what you need on such a hectic and nerve-wracking morning! Mine and my Bridesmaid’s makeup lasted fantastically all day and I have had many compliments about my makeup when people see my wedding photos. Thanks San!

I chose San to do my registry and Asian bridal make up and she did a fantastic job. She listened to my ideas at the trial and made them work with the latest trends. She also gave me great advice on jewellery and accessories and how to compose myself on the day. It was very important for me to find someone who would ensure I looked my best and San left my side only when she knew everything was perfect. I would recommend San to anyone looking for an attentive and WOW Asian makeup artist!

–Nisha Shah, Asian bridal hair and make up Bedford, Bedfordshire

San provided her make up and hair services at my sister-in-laws Walima. It was a big responsibility for me to organise this for her and with no time for a trial run, we were so overwhelmed with how outstanding she looked, just like your website photos she looked so beautiful. You brought out the colours from her outfit which looked amazing. We will surely be calling on your services again for our next function.

–Lubna Khatri, Asian bridal hair and makeup Watford, Hertfordshire

San Mehra provided bridal makeup services to bride Anita and her bridesmaids in August 2012.

A natural makeup look was required for the Church wedding and the ladies were very happy with the result. “The day went wonderfully and we all looked lovely thanks to you San!”

–Anita, Bridal makeup Redbourne, Hertfordshire

San was an absolutely great help with deciding what type of hair and makeup would suit with the outfits I had for my big day.
