Things to make you go ‘I do’.

VENDOR FEATURE: Niki Simpson Hair and Makeup

A queen of all things hair and makeup, Niki Simpson has been helping brides feel their best for almost a decade. We took five to find out more about her business and share some of her (literally) pretty work with you.

Tell us a bit about your business.

We provide natural makeup and soft, modern hairstyles for laid back brides.

Can you describe what sets your business apart?

A lot of brides comment on how much they appreciated my calm approach on the wedding day. At a time where emotions sometimes run high, it’s nice to have someone around who stays cool, calm and collected!

What is the main advantage for couples who work with you?

Both hair and makeup can be provided by the same vendor.

Can you share some of the things that go on behind the scenes?

Lots and lots of emails! Training to keep our skills up to date. Hours of scouring Insta, wedding and beauty blogs for the latest trends.

What are some of the main questions couples ask you? And what are the answers?

Brides often ask if I can do makeup for all skin tones? I carry a full colour range of foundations for all skin tones in my kit and can tailor the makeup to suit any ethnicity. That and whether I’ve had any bridezillas – thankfully none to date!

Do you think there are any preconceptions about the wedding industry?

Not really, these days couples are pretty clued up on everything thanks to the plethora of blogs and digital resources available!

What’s your next predicted wedding trend?

I think brides will look to what the Royals do – Meghan made the most stunning princess bride! I also think we will start to see less boho and rustic vintage and more understated elegance. Still relaxed but with chic, sophisticated and classic influences.
