Dear Natalie, I am so glad that I found you online, and was immediately impressed by all of the beautiful photographs of your wedding hairstyles. I knew straight away that I wanted you to style my hair for my wedding. It was such a pleasure to organise everything with you - you were always so responsive and professional. I knew I wanted a half-up half-down, but other than that I had no idea at all what I wanted. You found my perfect style so easily at the trial, and you knew exactly what to do with my unco-operative hair! I’m not sure my hair has ever lasted longer than half an hour after having been curled, but you were so competent in getting it to look how we wanted, and getting it to stay that way. I also have such thin hair, and you guided me effortlessly through the process of getting some clip in extensions. It was great to have such expertise guiding me through - I’d have been lost otherwise! On the day, you arrived so promptly, and were so organised in getting set up. You knew exactly what you were doing and when, and it really put my mind at ease to know how organised and competent you were. You worked with Sigita in perfect harmony. The morning was organised with such precision between the two of you - so impressive! In addition to my hair, you managed the hair of two bridesmaids and mother of the groom under time pressure, and the results were all perfection. Once the style was finished, I couldn’t believe it was actually my own hair (admittedly a few extensions!!). It was exactly as I’d imagined (maybe even better!). I’ve never felt so glamorous, and it gave me such confidence for my big day. It’ll be the most photographed day of my life, and I’m so unbelievably happy with the look you created for me that I can now admire forevermore in the photos! Not only this, but my hair held its style for the whole day (for the first time ever). My tiara didn’t budge the whole day and night. There are photos from late into the night dancing, and I still have my waves and the half up-do hadn’t shifted at all. I was so impressed by this, given I have such fine and limp hair that usually drops so quickly. It really was a work of art and such talent to create such an amazing style that lasted so long. I’m so glad that I chose you as my wedding hair stylist, and I would recommend you to absolutely anyone looking for someone who will guide them through every decision effortlessly, and execute their choice with perfection. I was so sad to say goodbye to you and Sigita when I left for the church, as you were both so crucial to making my wedding morning so special. Thank you so much for being my wedding hair-stylist and the best hair stylist there is! Love from OliviaDr Olivia Hamilton. Ashbourne, Derbyshire. July 2021.
Absolute Gem! Cannot praise this lady enough from beginning to end. Found Natalie through google searches and was a tad nervous as I prefer to go on recommendations. But two bridesmaids, mother of the groom and the bride all looked amazing. We have very different hair from short, long, straight and curly and Natalie did exactly what we wanted. And was a pleasure to spend time with on the day. Wouldn't hesitate to use her again!Lyndsay H. Barnsley, South Yorks. May 2021.
Thank you soooo much for yesterday Natalie!!! My hair and Annie's hair both looked amazing and I felt so special. It was lovely to have you as part of my wedding morning, thank you xxxSara Close. Sheffield, South Yorks - June 2021
Highly recommended! Natalie is a brilliant technician who is a complete professional in her field. My hair was very short after illness but Natalie worked her magic matching hair extensions to my own hair colour and giving me beautiful flowing locks. I completely love what she has created and I now feel more like my old self. I can’t thank you enough Natalie for giving me my self confidence backSue M. Rotherham, South Yorks. June 2021
Hi Natalie Just wanted to say thank you for such a lovely experience. We both really enjoyed it and I loved my hair. Even more excited for our wedding day now Steph xxStephanie Maddison, Sheffield. May 2021
Another fabulous style by the very talented Natalie A. Mason at Max It Up (Event Hair Stylist). If you aren't already part of her following on Instagram please add and consider for all bridal and occasion / event hair 💁♀️ Make sure you get booked in advance 👍Danielle G. Sheffield, South Yorks
Dear Natalie, We wanted to say a massive thank you for making our wedding day the most special day of our lives (so far!) We are still absolutely giddy from our wedding day and loving married life! We are so grateful to every one of the people involved in our wedding, it was just so perfect, and after such a long wait, we couldn't have asked for a better day. We selected you and all of our other wedding vendors so carefully as we loved your work, and we now know that we definitely made the right choice with every single one of you. We cannot thank you enough for your professionalism and your talent - we would recommend you to absolutely anyone and everyone! My hair stayed put long into the evening, your hard work definitely paid off there! My mum's hair didn't budge an inch and my sister's hair went wavy but looked stunning! We cannot thank you enough! I'll be sure to send you pictures once the professional ones come through. I'm sure I will be in touch to get my hair done with you again (after the summer/wedding season of course). Thank you again! Kind regards, Arthi & Daniel Rajkumar StevensonDr Arthi Rajkumar-Stevenson, Sheffield, July 2021.
You were amazing right from first enquiry, to my trial and then to our wedding day!Stephanie M, Sheffield, South Yorks. July 2021.
I recently worked with Natalie on a styled shoot, and from the very start she was just a joy to work with. She's very friendly and puts you at ease straight away. She created a beautiful hairstyle on our model, and I can really recommend her to anyone who is getting married! She is such a positive person to be around and her work is amazing!Becky Smith - Foxglove & Black. West Midlands. December 2020, Reviews
I want to thank you Natalie for everything. My hair lasted all day and everybody liked it. Also thank you for attending so early in the morning to the appointment. It was a good detail the bag with gifts on the day. :)Dr Karla Tun, Sheffield - May 2021
I have booked Natalie on two different occasions now and both times Natalie created beautiful hairstyles for me and my sisters. We are extremely fussy with how our hair is styled, as me and my sisters have naturally curly, frizzy hair. However, our hair lasted all day and did not become frizzy. We received soo many compliments and recommended Natalie to everyone. Definitely the friendliest hair stylist we’ve ever used, who listened to exactly what we wanted and was just genuinely a lovely person. Thank you once again Natalie and I look forward to getting our hair done again 💕Nailah Aslam. Dewsbury, West Yorks. October 2020, Reviews
Just had my wedding hair trial with Natalie for myself, my mum, and one of my bridesmaids. Natalie listened to what we wanted, and made suggestions based on our hair as to what would suit us best. I am so glad we listened, Natalie created the most beautiful styles for us. I tried a couple, and fell in love with what I believe is called 'The Mermaid'. Natalie put us at ease, listened to is, and the morning flew by. She is so professional and so chatty, we had so much fun. So glad I found you Natalie, and can't wait for my big day now! And I'll be coming to you for any special occasion hair too! Thanks a million, we are all thrilled :)Charlotte Poole. Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
Natalie was amazing to work with for my wedding. From day one you were always on hand to answer queries and give advice. My hair looked amazing and I’m so grateful you were able to help with my young bridesmaids hair on the day also, we both loved our hair. It was so lovely getting to know you and you made us feel so at ease. I definitely know where to come if I need my hair styling in the future xDanielle M. Dronfield, S. Yorks. September 2021
Natalie was a wonder to work with for my wedding. She has such a great repertoire of styles and helped me pick something that worked perfectly for me on my day. My hair is tricky to work with as it’s so thin and flat, but she worked her wonders and created a perfect style with plenty of volume, which held all day! It was so effortless to communicate and organise things with Natalie, such as the wedding hair trial and of course the day itself. I also used Clip Hair extensions, and Natalie guided me through the process of getting the right style and colour of extensions to help get my dream style on the day. I’d have been lost without her help! She was so organised and efficient on the day, and was such a calming presence despite having to do four styles in just a few hours! I would recommend Natalie to anybody who wants the perfect style on their wedding day, done by someone who is so professional and will make the morning run smoothly and calmly! Best wedding stylist ever! xxxDr Olivia H. Tissington, Derbyshire. August 2021
I chose Natalie to be my wedding hair stylist from looking at her outstanding work across social media. From start to finish the experience was lovely and so sincere and genuine, I couldn’t have wished anybody better to be a part of my bride tribe and wedding morning. Not forgetting the whole build up with my initial trail etc!! So professional, relaxed and outstanding at what she does. Thank you so much Natalie 🧡💜 XXXChloe S. Leeds, W. Yorks. Sept 2021.
Natalie did my hair for my 40th birthday and I loved it! She made me feel very special and the style was perfect! She took a lot of pride in her work and all my guests said how beautiful it was. Thank you Natalie! Just need another event to have it done again 🥰Kelly C. Sheffield, South Yorks. Oct 2021
Fantastic service and a lovely addition to the wedding morning . Even though I wanted a lengthy style Natalie made sure I had what I really wanted and I felt like a princess with my Hollywood glam/Jessica rabbit style. Attention to detail was exceptional.Katie W. Sheffield, South Yorks. Oct 2021
Natalie is very professional and her work is of a very high standard. I had a lot of compliments when Natalie last did my hair & I cant wait to have my hair styled by her again soon. I would definitely recommend xAmie C. Sheffield, South Yorks. August 2021.
Another fabulous hair do by the talented Natalie Mason. It's quite fun having your hair played with!Tania O. Rotherham, South Yorks
Natalie did my wedding hair trials recently for myself, my Maid of Honour, my Bridesmaids, Mother of the Bride (mum!), and my two little Flower Girls, and to say I am overwhelmed with not only her absolutely superb styling, but her professionalism and fantastic, bubbly personality. She's amazing at what she does, and she is just so lovely. She put us all at ease, and the time flew by. She left us all feeling amazing, like princesses. Our hair stayed in all day and night, and was still lovely and curled the next day. I can't wait for my wedding day, even though it's been postponed due to coronavirus, I will probably book another trial nearer to my wedding, just for a treat after this awful virus. I can't recommend Natalie enough, she is THE BEST in the business as far as we're concerned.Becky D. Dronfield, South Yorks.
Had my hair styled for my 30th birthday and could not have been happier with the results! My hair is quite challenging, but this was not an issue for Natalie. Professional and relaxed from start to finish. Thank you so much xxxAlexandra M. Sheffield, South Yorks.
So pleased with the outcome of my new hair. Looks so natural and blends in with my own hair very well. I've had loads of compliments and some people even thought it was my own hair. Would definitely highly recommend Natalie, very friendly, helpful and professional. Thank you so much.Nicola P. Notts.
Thank you so much, I love it. I can't get over how perfect it looks! (20" Hair Extensions - Micro Rings, Russian Hair)Rebecca B. Sheffield, South Yorks
From the moment you message Natalie, you know you have made the right choice. 5 star work from simple complimentary slippers upon arrival, and every single stage right through to the finished results. Having had extensions previously in London by Julian at 3V for many years, who works with celebs in the public eye, I of course thought I’d struggle to get that kind of quality hair and work again. Natalie proved me wrong. Cannot recommend this lady enough. Well worth the one hour drive. I will be back again and again.Shelly M. Scunthorpe, Lincs.
I would defo recommend!! Natalie is so lovely, I had a LA weave done by her, my hair is so thick and was one length but she managed easily to blend and chop into the hair to make it look so natural! Thanks so much my hair is amazing!! Beautiful results.Pria W. Sheffield, South Yorks.
5 stars. I absolutely love my new hair extensions, totally transformed me, and I’m thrilled. The quality of the hair is just outstanding, I have the Grade 8A Russian and it is the best hair around. Natalie really reassured me in all aspects of extensions so that I felt happy having them fitted. The colour match is absolutely spot on! She spent a lot of time layering and blending so that they look like natural hair, which is very hard to find from an extensionist. She cuts and blends to perfection, because like she says, it is just as important to do this as a correct installation, else they just look fake. I know Natalie has undertaken extra training in this area and it definitely shows in her work. I am thrilled to bits with the hair and the service Natalie provides, and she’s always around to help or answer any questions. I can’t recommend her enough, she is a total perfectionist. Hair extensions that look like your own hair. My hairdresser even says what a fab job Natalie has done. She’s very friendly and very approachable, yet professional too. Really can’t recommend enough, I am over the moon.Donna C. Sheffield, South Yorks.
So delighted with the fitting and quality of my hair extensions. Natalie spent lots of time with me choosing the colour and type of hair to blend in with my very fine hair and was really knowledgeable and professional. After having a bad job done at the last place I went to would definitely recommend Natalie and will be back for my maintenance soon. Thank you so much.Jo M. Baslow, Derbyshire.
Thank you so much for today! The hair lasted all day and was perfect! You're extremely talented and even more lovely.Nailah A. Dewsbury, West Yorkshire.
Had my wedding hair trial with Natalie, and I am so happy. She did my hair in a really lovely boho half up style just as I asked for, and it far exceeded my expectations. She also did updos for my mum, sister, and best friend and they were just as thrilled. My little niece had a gorgeous braided style, she looked so cute. Natalie is amazing at what she does, the styles were outstanding and I cannot recommend her enough. The styles lasted all day and night, and I was left with lovely curls the next day. Nothing is too much trouble for her, she is amazing. Thrilled to have found you Natalie! I was instantly at ease, Natalie is chatty and fun, but super professional. Now just got to wait for my wedding, sadly postponed to next year because of this horrible virus, but it's something to look forward to! Thanks so much, I highly recommend you to everyone! xxSara P. Leeds, West Yorks.
So happy with my nano bead extensions! Natalie is very professional and made me feel at ease and confident in her abilities. I lost a lot of my hair through over bleaching and as a result lost a lot of confidence but now I have a beautiful full head of hair! I wouldn’t go anywhere else, would recommend to anyone! Experienced stylist! XLaura S. Sheffield, South Yorks.
Very professional, easy to talk to and give good advice, would recommend. Love my new look, thank you xxLisa P. Chesterfieild, South Yorks.
Just want to say a huge thanks Natalie for my amazing new hair! I feel like a princess! I can't stop looking in the mirror lol! Cannot believe the transformation! You now have a customer for life! Can't believe how I look. Ladies, if you want fabulous extensions from a super friendly and professional lady, don't go anywhere else! Seriously! Thanks Natalie! xSherdian W. Dinnington, South Yorks.
Love love love! Natalie has done an amazing job on my hair. Would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of having hair extensions. Very friendly, very professional, and I’ll definitely be going back to have them done again.Danielle S. Sheffield, South Yorks.
I can’t explain how happy I am with my hair. A hairdresser really messed up my hair, and this lovely woman has made me and my hair feel amazing and feel a lot more confident. She is amazing and truly talented in what she does. I couldn’t thank her enough, and also trying something new out on my hair which turned out brilliantly, thanks so much again. And I would recommend you. Here are a few extra stars, you deserve more than five! ********** Thanks so much Natalie, I am so happy and will never go anywhere else! xxxShannon F. Sheffield, South Yorks.
Super excited. Had my consultation with Natalie. Very professional and explained everything. Now feeling very confident that extensions are the perfect choice for the look I wish to achieve. I’ve opted for the LA Weave. Thank you, can’t wait xxxLaura S. Lancs.
Fab fab fab! What more can I say? Thanks so much for my great new hair. I am thrilled. I will recommend you to everyone, and won’t be going anywhere else from now on! Highly recommend, very friendly, great laugh, and very professional. You certainly know what you’re doing! Thanks again, I am so happy x xZoe L. Sheffield, South Yorks.

Natalie is absolutely brilliant, from taking the time and care of taking out my old extensions to fitting my fabulous new hair. I wouldn't go anywhere else.Holly M. Manchester, Lancs.

Love my hair. Natalie is very professional, always checking how I'm getting on with my extensions, And going out of her way to tweak my hair when I have a diva moment. Thanks Natalie XDebbie M. Sheffield, South Yorks.
Didn’t think it was possible to have extensions in my very thin, fine hair. Natalie has proven me wrong. I LOVE my new extensions, can’t believe how natural they look, and they are just beautiful quality. So thick and shiny. And long! And the cut to finish is so professional and is just fantastic. A full service, I could not ask for more. I wouldn’t have believed it possible in hair like mine, but OMG, I’m just amazed and so happy. Natalie is amazing at what she does, totally professional and knows exactly what she’s doing. Explained it all so well to me, so I felt confident having my first set of extensions. She’s so easy to talk to and friendly, and we had the best laugh! (still laughing now, you’re hilarious!). Felt so at ease, thanks so much hunni! I really cannot recommend her enough. Her service and products are the best. I spent a long time researching and I definitely made the right choice to go to Max It Up Hair! The aftercare and support is exemplary too. I will never go anywhere else, I struck gold with my choice.Louise F. Nottingham, Notts.
Shorter hair, don’t care! Thanks Natalie @ Max It Up! Everyone so far has liked it other than Lucas who doesn’t as he likes long hair only…but it’s okay as he still likes me as his mum apparently! Thanks again xxxDanielle G. Sheffield, South Yorks.
I am absolutely thrilled with my new hair. It’s beautifully woven in and looks completely natural. The whole process was a delight and Natalie, provides you with a superb care guide and explains how to take best care for longevity which will be a terrific help for me, I class myself as lucky to have found her and I wouldn’t want to use anyone else now as she offers by far the best service, Thank you Natalie!!

Natalie cut layers into my hair for me recently, to which I am very pleased. She pays very close attention to detail and takes her time to make sure you get the best finish possible. I will definitely be returning to Natalie in future!! 100% recommended. Great haircut!Megan Morton, Sheffield
I had to include this little clip of my gorgeous bride-to-be, Olivia in a blog. I mean, look at that style! She knew exactly which style she wanted, she found the it on my Instagram page (click HERE to follow me!) She chose this for her wedding hair. She was originally booked in for two trials but she doesn't need the second, she found this style at her first and fell in love. And so did I! It is quite a lengthy style, as it is built up in a certain way to achieve all of that gorgeous volume and height. No one can quite work out how the style is created (unless you're a stylist!), so it is sure to turn heads on her special day. Olivia has THE most gorgeous dress, seriously beautiful. Along with her stunning looks, her hair, and 'that dress', she is going to look like a real life princess. I will share photos from Olivia's big day late February I hope, so be sure to check back.
