Wedding / Bridal & Special Occasion Hair Styling

Wedding / Bridal & Special Occasion Hair Styling

International Hair Stylist of the Year 2020 & 2021 - Bridal / Wedding & Special Occasion Hair

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and therefore I believe you should feel the most beautiful version of yourself.  Your hair should be unique to your style and compliment your makeup perfectly. Both should fit seamlessly with your dress, flowers and theme, and I take huge pride in helping you create the finished look.  

Bridal & Special Occasion Hair by Max It Up is owned by myself, Natalie, and I am a professional hairstyling specialist. With five years experience, I specialise in in-salon or on-location hair styling for weddings, engagements, special occasions, TV, on location,  photo & styled shoots, and all occasions (or if you just fancy having your hair done for a treat!) and offer education for anyone wanting to learn the art of creating a hair masterpiece. 

By developing my own individual techniques for romantic, whimsical, and bohemian glam styles, I offer a high end bridal hair styling experience, along with a relaxed, fun, and stress free environment. My ultimate goal is to make you feel at ease, have fun on your wedding morning, and to make sure you walk down the isle feeling a like princess, on one of the best days of your life.

I offer professional, stunning Wedding / Bridal & Special Occasion Hair for all occasions, be it a day at the races, a photo shoot, on set, TV sets, a Prom, Wedding Trials, The Big Day itself, any special occasion, or just for a great night out.

I am a published hairstylist, having the total honour of being published by Unconventional Bride, B.LOVED, and Weddings Incorporated (so far, more to come!). Please view my blogs on this.

I am a multi award winning hairstylist!...

Please ensure you click here to read my blog articles for lots of information for your wedding day hair, accessories, and so much more.  I blog often, so there is a lot of information in there to help and inspire you.


I offer a free consultation to any bride wanting to come in and meet me, and discuss your requirements before a trial.
Not all brides want this, but I do offer it for those who do.

It's nice to meet each other, and it gives me a chance to see your hair, and advise what styles can be achieved, and whether anything needs to be added, like clip in extensions, for instance, to achieve the style you desire.

I offer this in person, but I also offer this by either Facetime or Zoom calls for anyone out of area who wants a consultation prior to booking in.

I am offering this service to all brides who are out of area, but who have booked me for their wedding. It's a perfect way to get to know each other a little better, and for me to see your hair and styles you have in mind. 

I love to get to know a bride as soon as possible and build up a relationship so that you are super comfortable with me, so this is a perfect way to do for anyone out of area.

If you'd like this free service, please email me or call me on 07775 066136.

Or you can find lots of information, photos, client testimonials, and prices here on this website


I recommend a half day appointment usually from around 9am - 12pm or 12pm - 3pm. If you are having the same style for all of your bridesmaids, a trial with one of the bridesmaids may also be a good idea to establish the look. If everyone is wanting a different style, I do recommend everyone has a trial.  If you have a large bridal party, consider some simple yet effective styles that can be achieved quickly on the morning of your wedding. 

Your trial should ideally be at least 6-8 weeks before your wedding day.  I allocate a full morning or afternoon slot for your trials - approximately 2-3 hours depending on how many are in your wedding party.  At your trial, I will discuss your wedding theme, dress and your hair and makeup ideas and inspiration. This will all be taken in to consideration to achieve the desired look. You will have the opportunity to try different styles and tweak the final look to ensure every little detail is 100% perfect.  I will take photos and make detailed notes and make a perfect plan for your wedding day hair.


Hair Extensions are sometimes needed to give you the extra volume and/or length for a truly wonderful, volumous style.  If required, clip in hair extensions will need to be purchased by the client for the trial and wedding day.  Requirements will be discussed at your consultation.


I do not offer blow dries pre-styling, it takes up valuable time that should be spent styling.  Please ensure your hair is clean, either freshly washed that day, or at the very least, the day before.  I do however offer a blow dry or THE ultimate bouncy blow dry if that is all that is required by any member of the wedding party. 


If you would like an additional trial, this is no problem at all.


Depending on the location, you may also wish for me to return in the evening for a restyle. Feel free to ask about this option if this is something you would like to know more about.


From door to door, I charge 50p per mile, round trip.  I do and will travel to all parts of the UK.  Please contact me for details.

For weddings which require an early start time due to time of ceremony, number in bridal party, or a lengthy travel time over 1.5 hours, I may require an overnight stay at / near the venue. 


If you need me to move to venue mid-styling, there is a charge for this.  This is because it takes up valuable time that could be used to style.  If I need to start styling early for instance at your home or any other place, and you then need me to move to the venue with you to carry on styling there, there will be a charge for this of £35 per hour.

This is to cover the loss of styling time, as I need to pack up, travel to the venue, and set back up again, all of which eats in to styling time, and is time I could be spent working.


Terms and Conditions will be sent via email on your initial enquiry.  If you’d like to see a copy please email me, or look at the T&C's section on this website.

There is a £15 booking fee for single bookings, and a £50 'Save The Date' booking fee for Wedding Trials, Wedding Day Packages, and Group Bookings.

This must be paid within two days of booking to secure the date(s) in my diary.  This amount is deducted from your final balance.  Your date(s) are not secured until you have paid the booking fee.

Booking Fees are non-refundable, in line with my Terms & Conditions, which can be found in my 'Policies & Terms of Business' page on this site.

Any changes or additions to the bridal party need to be communicated in advance, and in writing to no later than one calendar month before the wedding date.



Depending on the style, I usually allow 1.5-2.5 hours for the Bride, and 1-1.5 hours each for others in the bridal party. 


From door to door, I charge 50p per mile, round trip. Plus any extra expenses, eg, toll charges. These will be added to your final invoice. I do and will travel to all parts of the UK.  Please contact me for details.


Hair washed the day before your trial can sometimes be easier to work with. However, if you have an oily scalp and would prefer to wash your hair on the morning of your trial and wedding day then this is fine also.


A non-refundable booking fee of £15 for single person 'Event Hair' or a £50 'Save the Date' for weddings or group bookings will be required to hold the date(s) of your event day or trail and wedding in my diary. This will be taken off your final cost when you pay for your balance, which must be paid in full at least four weeks before your wedding.  For weddings, once you are 100% happy with your trial, a non-refundable booking fee of 50% of the total wedding day cost is required to finally secure the wedding day in my diary. Again, this can either be paid in cash at the trial or within two days after trial by bank transfer.


The final 50% of the wedding day cost is to be paid at least four weeks before the wedding date.  You can of course pay this at any time prior to this, it will be one less thing to think about on your big day.


I am based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, and will travel to you FOC within 10 miles (round trip) of Aston, S26.  I will travel further, and indeed will cover anywhere in the UK.  Please refer to the section above re travel expenses over 10 miles (round trip) from my premises.

Recent Testimonial for Bridal / Wedding Hair...

"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."
