About me

Hi there!
Thank you for looking at my website. I am TaraLee Johnston, although most people call me Tara. I am an experienced, award winning hairdresser, qualifying over 20 years ago. I have specialised in bridal hair for the last 15 years.
Based in Essex, I have helped hundreds of brides over the years to create their perfect wedding hair. I travel far and wide so please do enquire if you are outside the Essex area.

I have trained on numerous hair courses to keep up to date with the latest trends. I am absolutely thrilled and extremely proud to have won a Highly Commended Award for the East of England in The Wedding Industry Awards for 2020 (which I have my 2019 brides to thank for because part of the award is based on their votes).

My work is to the highest standard and I pride myself on being a perfectionist. I am super-organised and very patient. I will help you choose a hairstyle to flatter your face shape, hair type and to compliment your dress. I will also offer advice on the right accessories and placement of veil.

I am very fortunate to say I love my job, being in a such a happy and positive environment. I count my blessings that I meet with such wonderful bridal parties. I work efficiently and quietly, always allowing plenty of time, which helps to alleviate any stress on your wedding morning. I will keep to my time schedule and make you feel like a million dollars.
I have also been known to lace up dresses, help with button holes for mums and cut out insoles for the brides' shoes! It's important to me that you feel relaxed and stress-free on the lead up to, and on, your wedding day.
