Hi Julia, I had been meaning to e-mail you a looooooong time ago to say thank you for doing such an amazing job on my wedding day, looking after myself and my two bridesmaids. You truly listened and understood my vision and made me look and feel absolutely gorgeous!

The wedding was amazing so relaxed and just perfect. The hair was stunning I was so in love with the bridesmaid's hair and mine was gorgeous and lasted SO well I never had to think about it once. It was also so nice having you with us getting ready you were so lovely and really added to the relaxed vibe.

Thanks heaps for doing our make up and hair yesterday! Everyone looked amazing and my make up lasted for the whole day. I had lots of comments about my make up, my friends loved how natural it looks so I have been directing them to you. All the very best with your upcoming events!

I have the lovely Julia O'Neil to thank for my amazing makeup and hair. She nailed look I was after – soft, fresh and feminine, and managed to get my hair just perfect for wearing with or without a veil.  She was absolutely BRILLIANT! Julia was extremely professional, knew all about the right types of makeup for my fair and freckled skin and made me look and feel like a model. I had so much fun!! Thanks Julia!

Thank you so much for doing such a fabulous job with my makeup, bridesmaid’s makeup and Mum’s makeup. Everyone looked so gorgeous and I was so happy with how we all looked. And your calm manner certainly helped to keep the pre-wedding jitters at bay!

Just a quick note to thank you for coming to Waiheke to do our hair and make up last Saturday. It was really a treat and I felt as fabulous as I can feel. You did an awesome job on this frumpy girl! Hopefully we can have another wedding close to Auckland so that you can make us gorgeous again.
