The Wedding Industry Awards.

I nearly didn’t enter The Wedding Industry awards this year, I was really busy with my usual hairdressing , wedding shows, weddings and enquiries for next year all coming at once and I didn’t think I could fit in the admin required to enter.

IMG_7431aBUT the super lovely Sophie nominated me , as well as all of her other suppliers and I know that must have taken her ages to do. I couldn’t not enter.   Plus, there would be a regional awards party and it would be an excuse to dress up and mingle with some of  my favourite wedding industry friends.

Winning the region last year was a huge surprise for me as I felt my fellow nominees were equally as deserving. The same should be said for this years talented bunch. The judges really had their work cut out choosing the winner.

Sadly, I didn’t win this year. But when the winner is someone whose work you have admired , it’s not quite so bad.  Also it was really great to see Fetcham Park  and Kalm Kitchen win their categories



Hair and Make-up ladies having fun!

I’ve always thought (and said many times ) that the real prize in The Wedding Industry Awards are the wonderful words that every bride takes  the trouble to write .

The way I approach all aspects of my work with enthusiasm and commitment to provide a high level of service , and the relationships that evolve with clients,  is pretty standard for me, so the  fact that each and everyone of my brides feels that I have gone above and beyond is amazing.

I want to thank them all for voting , I really do appreciate it.

Here are their words:

Whilst I could point to a picture and Sharon could do them perfectly for my bridesmaids (and their hair didn’t move ONE BIT the whole day & night) I had absolutely no idea what I wanted as the bride. That’s where Sharon’s creativity and flexibility really kept me calm and made me feel amazing on the day. Sharon was patient, kind, and allowed me to pin 100,000 pictures on Pinterest for her to look at – and we didn’t decide on my hair fully until the actual morning and I loved it – beyond words.
Mrs Sophie Pentony

I had four bridesmaids and myself all with varying hair lengths and thicknesses, Sharon was able to create stunning up-dos for all of us that lasted all night long. Everyone loved their hair and the service on the day was amazing.  Sharon also gave me the most helpful tip of the day how to go to the toilet in a huge wedding dress- her other bits of advice just showed the experience she has in the industry and was a calming influence on the day.
Mrs Lauren Goodwin (Calvert)

Sharon is a very talented hairdresser and created not only the perfect hairstyle for me but also for my bridesmaids. She understood the style that I wanted and created a beautiful hairstyle that lasted all day! My bridesmaids gave her pictures of hairstyles that they liked and she created the most perfect styles for them, which they all absolutely loved! She also had so much advice to give and was very helpful in organising us all the morning of the wedding!
Dr Charlotte Thompson

Sharon was brilliant on the day and not only created wonderful hairstyles for myself and four bridesmaids, but also managed to keep everyone relaxed! I had countless comments on the day about how lovely my hair looked and I felt confident that my hair would stay looking perfect all day. Thank you Sharon!
Mrs Rachel Cullen (McAleenan)

Sharon was incredibly helpful in the lead up to my wedding. She gave me detailed advice and really listened to what me and my bridesmaids wanted. Our hair stayed in all day and I was incredibly happy with the results.
Mrs Siobhan Edmondson (Bishop)

Sharon is an outstanding hair stylist. I am such a perfectionist and was very worried about achieving the perfect style. Sharon put me at ease straight away. She just knows what she is doing and she understands brides. Her service is so incredibly tailored to each individual. Further to this she was just such a jot to be around. She creates a fun atmosphere on your wedding day and not once do you worry about being ready on time you just enjoy every minute of the experience.
Mrs Hannah Secular (Nee Burrows)

Incredible hairdresser who is a great person to have around on the day of your wedding! Lots of valuable experience and advice

I have always only worn my hair in one way so was very confused and concerned about my wedding hair style. I went to Sharon with lots of different ideas and she quickly explained what would work and why. I was instantly reassured by Sharon’s experience and knowledge. On the day Sharon was fantastic. I loved my hair, it was perfect and exactly what we had discussed. She went above and beyond, even styling one of my bridesmaid’s wigs who was had lost her hair due to chemotherapy.
Mrs James Aird-Mash

Sharon was absolutely fantastic! My hair looked absolutely stunning and exceeded my expectations and all my bridesmaids looked amazing. Some were nervous about having their hair put up but Sharon put them at ease and styled their hair so that they felt comfortable, beautiful and looked amazing! Sharon was a complete asset to have as part of the team getting ready for the wedding. She shared her advise and expertise to make sure everything was perfect on the day.
Mrs Sophie Matthews

Sharon was wonderful and instantly made me feel comfortable and confident when first talking to her on the phone, I knew I had to choose her for my wedding hair. Having very difficult hair to style I was so happy when at my hair trial my hair style worked perfectly. I am very petite and opted for a 60s style beehive to give me some height, it was a soft style with loose curls and little flowers. I was so impressed with my hair and felt beautiful on our wedding day, my hair stayed secure all day!
Mrs Ella May

Sharon delivered the vision for my hair perfectly and was such a delight to have around. My bridesmaids all wanted different styles and this didn’t phase her at all. I had so many comments about how amazing everyone’s hair looked. Even my maid of honour has booked her for her wedding!
Mrs Clare Hall

Sharon went above and beyond on my special day, she stayed after she had finished to advise how we should hold our flowers and made sure I got in my dress OK,  she was an absolute diamond and I’m so glad I choose her for the hair on the day
Mrs Emma Mullender (lilley)

Sharon made my hair look incredible. I hadn’t given it too much thought prior to the day as I am not really a “hair” person, but oh my goodness… It blew me away and I was close to tears when I saw it – it made me feel like a real bride. Sharon is also great to have around on the morning – she makes you feel really relaxed and was more than happy to help with the dress, flowers and other random stuff. What a star :-)
Mrs Claire Baldwin

My experience with Sharon was amazing from start to finish. She was incredibly friendly and helpful and went out of the way to make sure I was happy with my wedding hair through calls/emails to the trial and on the big day. It went much further than this though and she was practically my advisor for all things wedding including how to hold my bouquet! She is incredibly talented and was able to create exactly what I wanted (and more) from my bad descriptions. I had never felt more beautiful!
Mrs Fiona Cameron

Sharon did an amazing job of my hair and also for my bridesmaids. Everyone at my wedding was commenting on how wonderful the bridesmaids hair looked and the style stayed in all day! Sharon was very friendly and professional and offered great advice for choosing the styles for my big day. I would definitely recommend Sharon to anyone wanting a great wedding hair stylist.
Mrs Elaine Townend (Amos)

Sharon was creative, efficient and such a help in the lead up to the wedding, answering all my hair questions! I felt relaxed and on the morning and confident in what Sharon would do – even letting her cut my fringe on the morning of the wedding! The best things about using Sharon was how amazing she made my mum feel on the day! I don’t think my mum imagined that she could have a full and beautiful hair do! Sharon worked wonders!
Mrs Preme James

Sharon was absolutely fantastic. During my hair trial she understood exactly what I had in mind and suggested different ways we could incorporate my head piece, and on the day she went above and beyond to ensure we looked fabulous and were running on time. Not only did Sharon do all our hair absolutely beautifully, but she put me into my dress and veil and waited until the moment we left to ensure I got in the car without my dress getting dirty. What a star!
Mrs Holly Newberry (Straughen)

Sharon Is such a fantastic hairdresser and wedding hair stylist. She gave me so much support and guidance in the run up to the wedding from hair accessories, veils to what style would suit my dress and the venue. The work she did on my wedding day for me and my bridesmaids was stunning and better than I could have ever imagined. She cares so much about her work and clients I want every bride to be able to get the same quality, commitment and value for money that I did.
Mrs Helen White (Thomson)

Sharon is absolutely fantastic! My wedding took place in Italy and Sharon was happy to travel to do my hair and my 5 bridesmaids. Sharon is extremely organised and brilliant fun to be around. She created 5 fantastic different styles for all my bridesmaids with such ease. Every single one adored their hair and it lasted all day. For me we had two hair trials to discuss what would work best with the dress. I was concerned about the heat in June, but my hair was perfect and lasted the whole day.
Mrs Sarah Radcliffe (redmond)

Sharon was an absolute super star, she went beyond the call of duty for me. She helped me with my dress and all the ushers corsages. Even though she had hurt her knee pretty badly, she carried on like a trooper to make all the wedding party look stunning. I always recomend her to anyone I know getting married
Miss Sammy Hinton (Withers)

I wanted to thank Sharon so much for making myself and my bridesmaids look and feel so beautiful on my wedding day. We loved having her there, she helped out above and beyond just doing our hair and we enjoyed the laughter whilst getting ready, it was such a fun morning! I’ve had so many compliments about my hair – both on the day and from people viewing the photos – my hair held all day long in 30 degree heat, Sharon did an amazing job!
Mrs Sarah Ross (Guppy)

Excellent, professional service all round. Sharon was very knowledgeable, professional and had an easy going personable manner. My hair looked beautiful, exactly how I had envisioned, perhaps even better. I had a rough idea of what I wanted at the hair trial, and Sharon was able to create a style that was perfect for the theme, adding details that I had not thought of. I was given good hair care advice and the morning of my wedding ran smoothly as Sharon worked effortlessly to schedule.

Sharon was very very personable and easy to talk to when discussing hairstyle options. She was open to ideas and attentive during the hair trails. Her work is amazing. the time and effort put into the styling was fantastic. She helped with everything from the veil to last minute touches to hair accessories of the bridal party! On the wedding day itself, she offered her extended support with managing my children (who were flower girls) and was on hand for emotional support too!
Mrs Carmen Liburd

My bridal party and I were so lucky that Sharon was with us. She is amazing at her job and what a great person to work with ! Thanks again !
Ms Simmy Collins (Uygur)

It was an absolute pleasure to have Sharon be part of my wedding day. I absolutely loved my hair, my mum’s hair looked amazing and all my bridesmaids loved their up-do’s. It was all perfect, and stayed perfect right through to the end of the night! Sharon kept me calm and relaxed all morning & placed my veil perfectly. I cannot thank her enough. I have never felt so beautiful. It sounds ridiculous, but I love all the photos of the back of me (as well as the front) as my hair never looked better!
Mrs Jenna Laybourne (Frizell)

As soon as I met Sharon, she instantly eased me about my concern over the quality of my hair and difficulty in styling it. Sharon was very approachable, friendly and gave me the confidence I needed to realize that she could indeed create any style I wanted. I never once doubted her ability to create the perfect look which matched my personality and the style of wedding which I had chosen. She made sure that the total wedding party kept impeccable timing on the day. I highly recommend her to all.
Mrs Natalie Smeaton

Sharon really listened to what I wanted and did her best to create the look I wanted during the trial. When it came to my big day my hair looked so beautiful. In fact when she put the flowers in my hair it was the first time I cried that day! She is a great person a lot and kept everyone calm. Could not recommend her more highly.
Miss Flora Michie

My original  hairdresser cancelled on me 1 week before my wedding. I was very shocked as I had paid for 2 trials 3 months before the wedding. I spoke to Sharon explaining the situation with her. She was super efficient and extremely reassuring. She already had a bridesmaid booked in but managed to do both jobs. She did a trial 2 days after I called her for myself and my maid of honour. She even organised our getting ready schedule for the morning of the wedding. She went above and beyond for us
Mrs christine fernandez

Absolutely professional but with the warmth of a family member. Sharon Roberts made all of my bridesmaids look amazing – producing their individual visions on the day of my wedding. My hair was fantastic and exactly what I wanted, Sharon was also a wonderful support on the morning of my wedding.
Mrs Katie Jarvis (humphreys)

Sharon was not only a wonderful hairdresser to my bridal party, but she came with a host of other invaluable skills that she put to use! She was a fabulous source of wedding morning advice to us all and we loved having her as part of our day. Once she had styled everyone’s hair, she stuck around and was beyond helpful in pinning button-holes, sewing up a friends dress that had split, helping with all my finishing touches. Her years of experience in wedding morning prep shine through.
Mrs Annajane Holland (Thorpe)

Sharon was recommended to me by the boutique where I bought my dress and I could not have been happier with the results! I had a trial and arrived with a less than adequate description of what I wanted my hair to look like for my wedding day. The end result was just perfect. Sharon had managed to create a master piece from my vague ramblings and the result on the actual day was again perfect! Sharon also did my 3 bridesmaids and they too were thrilled with their hair! Couldn’t recommend enough!
Mrs Jodie Hopkins (Kelly)

To me, Sharon was my wedding ‘fairy god mother’. She wasn’t just my hair stylist, she was so much more. She helped to recommend other wedding suppliers including my make-up artist and my wedding dress supplier. Before this I felt overwhelmed with all the different suppliers, trying to work out who offered what I was looking for and worried about who I could trust. She works magic with hair, she created true master pieces for me and my girls- she is a true credit to the wedding and hair industry!
Mrs Jessica Boulter (Williams)

Sharon slotted into to my wedding day like she was part of the bridal party – it was fantastic. She did so much more than do  myself and all my bridesmaids hair, from helping with the bouquets, showing us how to hold them , to helping us take tags of dresses she was invaluable. Having lost my mum last year it was great to have someone like Sharon around to keep us all going. Not only that, she gave us all great hair, how we wanted and it lasted from 9am through to past 12!
Mrs Lucy Clayton-Jones (Drake)

Sharon was fantastic! With a large wedding party and limited time Sharon had the morning organised with regimented precision! Which is exactly what you need. Sharon went above and beyond making us all look fabulous, the morning would not have gone well without as smoothly without her! A massive thank you Sharon!   Holley x
Mrs Holley Gale (Glassup)

Sharon did my hair exactly as I asked for it and it looked beautiful! So elegant and lots of volume like I wanted. She was lovely to have at the hotel whilst getting ready and had us laughing all morning which really helped to ease the nerves. She was also great at timings and getting me out the door at the right time whilst also helping to calm me down!
Mrs Jen Stewart (Boyens)


Thank you once again ladies.
