Full Description
My name is Claire Hartley and I am an experienced hairstylist and make-up artist based in Herne Bay, Kent. I have been in the hair industry since 2001. Having completed a HND in Fashion Styling and Photography at the London College of Fashion I decided to further my love of fashion and train in Hairdressing. I found the industry hugely creative and fast paced which I loved. I quickly progressed through my apprenticeship flaunting my newly honed skills on the salon floor. Over the course of the next 17 years I have worked internationally in a few, select salons. I have greatly enjoyed experiencing positions in some well known chain hairdressers as well as some very select boutique businesses. I have picked up many different techniques in all areas of hairdressing which have all contributed to the style I use today. I have not only delivered quality cuts, colours and styling in unisex salons, but have also enjoyed time with a cut-throat razor in a high end barber's shop in Brisbane, Australia. The experience of working entirely in men’s hairdressing improved and sharpened up my barbering skills so I am very confident and proficient in both women’s and men’s hairdressing. When I decided to set up a business myself, I trained in Makeup. These two skills work alongside each other which has enabled me to offer multiple services to all my clients. I now work creating beautiful up styles for weddings and photoshoots. I thoroughly enjoy what I do and love to make my clients look and feel fabulous!

I would 100% recommend Claire!
Last weekend, Claire did my wedding hair and make-up, my three bridesmaids’ hair and my Mum’s hair and make-up. She did the most fantastic job - everyone looked fabulous! Claire was friendly, professional and nothing was too much trouble. She totally put us at ease and was flexible to our requirements. I would 100% recommend Claire!

Exactly what I wanted for my special day
Claire Hartley did the most fantastic job on the morning of my wedding! I came to Claire for my trial with my Nan’s & Mum’s headdress which was 63years old. I wanted to modernised the look but still incorporate their headdress, Claire mastered this and my hair looked amazing and was exactly what I wanted for my special day. My bridesmaids and Mum’s Hair also looked fab on the day!! Would 100% recommend for cuts & colours too!! 😘

Our hair stayed perfectly in place all day
Claire recently styled the hair of 5 Bridesmaids and me for my wedding on the 4th May in St Margaret's Bay, Deal. Claire was incredible! Not only did she make us feel so relaxed on the day, she was also brilliant leading up to the day, travelling for an hour to do a trial for myself and two bridesmaids and really helpful with ideas/inspiration. Claire made us feel really reassured and is such a lovely person - it was a pleasure having Claire in the busy house on my wedding day! Our hair stayed perfectly in place all day (and we were dancing so much) and we all had so many compliments about how lovely our hair looked. Can't thank Claire enough! We had a really early start (6am!) but nothing was too much - would highly, highly recommend Claire!

Wow! I was blown away
Wow! I was blown away with how amazing Claire made me look and feel on my wedding day yesterday! My bridesmaids hair was really gorgeous and I really loved the up do she created for me. I felt like she really listened to what I was trying to explain and took everything on board. She was lovely from the moment we met and I couldn't recommend her more. Thank you so much Claire for everything xx

Beautiful results
Claire was brilliant. We wanted a mixture of blow drys and soft updos for our friend’s wedding. Claire arrived fully equipped and on time. She was friendly and professional. She had some ideas and enjoyed looking at some images we shared with her for ideas. We were all really pleased with the results which were, as asked, gentle and softly textured hair, not too neat, cool plaits and twists. Really lovely and will definitely use again! Beautiful results

She really went above and beyond
Claire did an absolutely fantastic job on mine and my bridesmaids hair! She really went above and beyond. I went to her with a very specific style in mind for myself and she nailed it first time at my hair trial. She was really good at adapting to a few last minute changes on the day and managed to make all the bridesmaids look similar even though she had to work with quite a few different lengths! I would 100% recommend her!
