 Denise is a freelance bridal hairstylist based in Leinster.  Her relaxed attitude ,funky nature and professionalism ensures a calm and fun morning. Her love of upstyling is apparent from her work . She will take the time to get to know each individual bride and works on a style to suit. 

She travels nationwide and no time is too early or late. She stays to put veils/ accessories/ last minute sprays in as nothing can be more stressful then a veil not sitting right!

I was so delighted with my choice of hair stylist, at the hair trial Denise looked through the pictures I had and the details I liked and didn't like and took it all on board. Denise is such an amazing person to have as part of your wedding, I cannot recommend her enough. She works fast and can create the most amazing styles in minutes! The fun she adds to a wedding morning really kicks the day off on a positive vibe. Thank you for the laugh, banter and fabulous hairstyles you created for me and the bridesmaids, all lasted perfectly throughout the day and night.

What a women! Denise is full of creativity and is an absolute pro at what she does. I loved that Denise made a point of telling me not be shy telling her if I didn’t like a particular style while she was doing my hair trial. In 40 minutes I think she created 5 styles for me, it was great to see so many options. I was never a huge fan of upstyles as I always felt very exposed having my hair up but Denise did such an amazing soft upstyle on me, I adored it and it stayed put all day. On the morning of the wedding she brought so much fun and a relaxed vibe to the house. I am delighted I choose Denise to do my hair and highly recommend her!

Denise was my AMAZING hairstylist for my wedding. Honestly Denise has no shortage of talent. I am the most indecisive person when it comes to hair but Denise new exactly what to do and had me and my bridal party feeling and looking amazing. Denise is exactly who you want on the morning of your wedding. Denise is highly hilarious and will have you belly laughing all morning, she is very honest and fits in so well that you feel like you've known her for the longest time. Denise you are a wizard when it comes to hair. Thank you so much, I hope our paths cross again. I wish you every continued success, you truly deserve it x

It was an absolute pleasure having Denise with us to style our hair the morning of my wedding. She has such a great attitude and is just the best craic! My bridesmaids could not believe just how quick (giving us plenty of time for pastries and prosecco!) but talented she is. I was so pleased with how my hair turned out -soft and not too ‘over-done’- yet Storm Jorge didn’t cause a hair to be out of place. My veil stayed put despite the best efforts of the gale force winds but my bridesmaids were able to take it out without disturbing the style. I can’t recommend Denise enough to be part of your wedding.

Anyway.. couldnt recommended Denise more, so easy to deal with, so down to earth which made me feel so at ease during my trial and made me look forward to having her around on the morning of the wedding.

Denise did hair for myself, bridesmaids and my mum for my wedding and I can't recommend her highly enough. I wanted my hair up but was a little unsure about what style, but Denise brought my vague idea to life and did an amazing job on both my trial and the day. My hair stayed up the whole day and complemented my dress and veil so well. Denise was so much fun to have around on the morning of the wedding. I was a little nervous about the day but she completely put me at ease and made me feel amazing! Thank you Denise!

Firstly Denise is an absolute barrel of laughs! But I suppose the bit that everyone needs to know is that she works extremely fast and is absolutely amazing at her job, nothing is a problem! Such a lovely lady to have around the morning of your wedding too, super chilled regardless of how busy she may be!

Denise did the hair for my wedding in February and she made the process so easy. I was very indecisive and went for two trials - Denise was very patient and took the time to try different (yet very similar) styles until we found the one. On the morning she was great craic and got everyone done in good time. Mother of the bride, bride and bridesmaids were all delighted with her work. My veil never moved and she she was able to advise on other hair pieces to compliment the style. Hair lasted all night (and the next day). If you provide the coffee she'll provide the chats! Can't recommend her enough - brilliant hairdresser!

Denise was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She was so relaxed and easy going and yet she created the most amazing upstyles on the day. Everyone raved about my hair and it stayed looking perfect for nearly 2 days! If you're looking for someone who makes you both feel and look good, go for Denise!

Denise is AMAZING. From first contact with her I knew she was the one for me. I met her for my trial when I returned home for our wedding. First style she picked and tried was the one for me. She's so much fun to have around the morning of the wedding and I never once had to double check my hair all day. I cannot Thank her enough for the laughs we had that morning to keep me sane. And for making myself and my ladies look as amazing as we did From the bottom of my heart Denise. THANK YOU Much Love

I cannot recommend Denise highly enough! She did an amazing job with my hair (and I have a pixie-cut, so she did not have much to work with!!), and pinned my veil and headpiece so perfectly that they did not budge a millimeter until I took them out. My three bridesmaids were delighted with their hair also, and were happy to report that not a single curl was out of place by the end of the night! Such a fantastic stylist, and brilliant craic as well :)

Denise is one of the nicest and fun people I have ever met. She fit right in with my sisters on the morning of the wedding and the craic we had was awesome. As for our hair, I actually can't fault was absolutely perfect and I loved it as did everyone based on the comments I got. My sisters all loved their hair too and the Mums were perfect. My hair actually got soaked on the day of the wedding as it was drizzling for the entire set of photos and I was panicking about my hair....when I went to go check on it, thinking I'd have to re-do it or fix it in some way, it was still perfect. Magician!!!! Thanks Denise :)

Denise is brilliant in every single way. She can work with every single hair type. Her styles are amazing and she is so quick at it, she is just a natural at what she does. She is such a bubbly person and brings love and laughter to a stressful environment which creates a great and stress free start off to your day. When you tell her what you want she can't create that masterpiece. I would highly recommend her and have to many. I was made feel like a princess. I wish I could enjoy that experience again and I will be booking her for upcoming occasions in the future. Thank you Denise.

Denise was an absolute dream. She was talented and super capable. My hair is normally a flat mess and she created the most beautiful soft style which earned me so many compliments throughout the day. It also stayed put and was comfortable until the very small hours of the night. My bridesmaids all had different hairstyles, and they each looked fantastic. She works so quickly and so well that we even had time to change one of the hairstyles. We had such a good laugh that morning, she is a great giggle and exactly who you want in the room with you when you're getting ready. A very, very, very talented lady!

I honestly cannot recommend Denise highly enough!! From the first time I met her for my wedding trial to the morning of the wedding she was so easy to deal with, so friendly, and knew exactly the styles I wanted for both myself and girls with minimal information from me. She made the morning of the wedding so relaxed and fun, she kept me and all the girls laughing the whole way through and she brought a great atmosphere to the house. I truly cannot thank you enough Denise for your amazing work. Myself and the girls were all thrilled with our hairstyles and it really stood the test of the day - we didn't even have to touch it up once!

Denise was so amazing, so nice and so much fun. Came out of my hair trial in stitches laughing. Same the morning of the wedding and it really made the morning go with ease. Loved her to bits. Everyones hair was gorgeous. Mine actually lasted the whole day and night and that NEVER happens to me. Couldn't recommend Denise more. She is so talented and did listened to what I wanted, looked at pictures and was able to do recreate it all perfectly.

Denise is a lovely, funny, down to earth girl and a brilliant hairdresser. From the first message through to the big day she was great. When i told her i wanted big hair she gave me BIG hair!! The bridesmaids and flowergirls looked beautiful too. She even managed to calm my pre-wedding nerves. I would recommend Denise to everyone.

Denise is not only a fantastic hairdresser but a really fun person to be around! For both of these reasons she was the perfect person to have present on the morning of my wedding. Denise had done my sister's wedding hair a couple of years previous to mine so I knew what a cool, talented girl she was. The morning of the wedding was full of laughter, craic and non stop chat. Denise had 7 of us to look after and she took it all in her stride. My BMs all went for different styles and I loved that they were all delighted with looking and feeling like the best version of themselves that day. She did an epic job on my hair which stayed put all day and night-through the boisterous hugs, glow stick skipping rope and late night moshing! In fact, I hated taking it down that night. I will 100% be recommending Denise to any of my family and friends looking for a wedding hair stylist in the future!!

I had Denise doing my hair and four bridesmaids for my wedding. I cannot recommend Denise enough, definitely one of the best decisions I made to have her involved. She made everyone feel so relaxed and was like one of the family on the morning. She is great fun to have in the house and she stayed until we all left for the church. I was so happy with my hair and if you are lucky enough to get Denise you wont be disappointed.

Choosing Denise to do your hair for your wedding is going to be one of the decisions you look back on after the big day and think " I'm so glad I did that"!!! Not only is she an extremely talented hairdresser with great vision and skills but she also has the knack of making you feel like you've been friends for years and therefore you feel comfortable in her presence which is really important when someone is coming into your home on let's face it a potentially pretty stressful morning of your life. Denise keeps it calm, lighthearted yet controlled. She does great work and I definitely recommend her.

What can I say about Denise? Well, I think she is just amazeballs!!! Denise was recommended to me by Deborah Curran, makeup artist extraordinaire , who did my makeup on the day, Debbie and Denise team up together and the two of them are just absolutely brilliant. I planned my wedding from the States which was extra stressful but the first time I spoke with Denise, she was so lovely, she put me at ease straight away. My trial was very last minute, just a couple of days before the wedding but I was confident I had chosen the right person to do my hair! You can tell she is passionate about what she does which makes a difference. I had some really good laughs with her, she is so easy going and that helped the 'ol nerves too. I really can't say enough good things about her! Thank you Denise!!

Denise is the most talented and efficient hairdressers around. She realty listens to you and will give sound advice , (like talking you out of getting purple hair), and her talent is evident from the first consultation. I can't recommend her enough.
Added 1st Oct 2011
I can't recommend Denise enough . . . she was fantastic to deal with, had loads of ideas and suggestions and made sure I was completely happy with my hair staying until we left for the church to make sure that everything was perfect including the veil. I got so many compliments on both my own and the bridesmaids hair the day of my wedding. She was so good that both my friends have subsequently used her for their weddings and they both looked amazing on their big days.
