I am a country bumpkin at heart but despite this decided to train and qualify with Toni and Guy in Central London. My love of working with hair came from an Art and Theatre background. 6 years working in London building a solid client base from Toni and Guy- Westbourne Grove was a brilliant experience and foundation to go on and become a Freelance Stylist.....and move to the countryside.
I have been Herefordshire based for 6 years having previously worked as a freelance hair stylist for several years living in the Cotswolds.
I haven't completely hung up my Scissors and continue to Cut and Style hair alongside my weddings. I love both elements of my job and am passionate about not only styling hair but providing an excellent service and experience from first contact to waving goodbye after a mornings Styling. I am also passionate about the environment, your health and mine so use Products that are free from nasties- No Parabens, No Sulphates and not tested on animals.
I would say my Styling has movement, is soft, organic, relaxed and natural with an 'undone' done finish. I see each bride as an individual so also love creating beautiful, era inspired or contemporary hair across a wide variety of weddings and locations, offering a professional, calm, relaxing and discreet, honest service.

" Tabby was more than a Bridal hair stylist- she was a wonderful, calm, thoughtful presence on my wedding day and I'll be eternally grateful. She's absolutely made of love and I can't recommend her highly enough "

Please see recent Q&A's for wonderful Dewsall Court introducing me and my work.
I was recently asked 'Why' I do what I do.
I love working with hair and people. The relationship with a Bride is so special and unique. I love getting to know your story and being part of a bigger collaboration and your vision. This self employed life works for me as I raise my little ones Ottilie and Sybil. I feel like an Artist and I love what I do.
I am thrilled to have been a Finalist in The Wedding Industry Awards for the last 4 years (west midlands region) receiving a 'Highly Commended' accolade in 2017 and 2018 and winning 'Wedding Hair Stylist of the Year' 2019 and again 2020 (still reeling from the awards night in November 2019) which is really exciting. I have now been a National Finalist for the second year running which in itself is a great feeling being recognised alongside lots of talented wedding industry suppliers.
