TG, Truly Gorgeous

The transformative powers of hair, makeup, and education. That almost sounded like a superhero catchphrase. Yep, I’m going with it.

In a way, all of the people I work with are superheroes! From brides to students, Cinderallas' off to the ball and models. They all arrive at my door (or me to theirs), ready to be transformed. And this transformation can lead to more than just a physical look change. I see brides cry – waterproof mascara all the way – when they see themselves look like they’ve always imagined and students become hungry for their own success after the first class. This is the (super)power of Truly Gorgeous.

Truly Gorgeous Brides (and their entourages)

This is the work that really gets me up in the morning. Well, this and a large cappuccino! I adore working in the bridal industry and being part of such a magical experience. It may sound cliché, but it really is an honour to be invited into such a momentous occasion and be trusted with bringing all the looks together. There’s always a unique buzz in the bridal room pre-wedding, where women come together and genuinely celebrate each other. There’s nothing better than that … well, maybe a yacht cruise around the Mediterranean or being able to spell yacht correctly the first time!

Enough said, let’s lock it in.

TG Training and Education

Well, they’re kind of the same thing, aren’t they? I guess you could call it the practical and theory combo – the work we do here is all about real life experience and step-by-step style sessions (because it’s essential to stay on-trend and #relevant now more than ever). There’s a whole lot to learn about hair and makeup artistry and passing on everything I have learned over the last 25 years is a serious passion of mine. Students not only gain new knowledge and get a serious skill upgrade, they meet others in the industry and increase their professional network. Win, win.
