I’ve worked on artistic, fashion and bridal photoshoots both in the UK and Portugal with Samantha. She can create any hair style effortlessly and so quickly which is exactly what you need when you have a short turnaround between shoots and locations. She’s always looking for the next venture to showcase her incredible work and this is why I would highly recommend her for any hair styling for any occasion.


Samantha styled mine and my bridesmaids' hair for my wedding and she was amazing! So so lovely, and did a fantastic job. It all looked beautiful and just what I had in mind even when I felt I couldn't verbalise it. Thanks again Samantha!
