Great Service
Janet is very friendly and helpful. I kept being told I looked incredible and really pleased with the result. Loved the hair and my make-up looked good all day through. She also helped with my mother-in-law, grandma-in-law and my bridesmaid with their hair and make-up. Absolutely love all the job she did for us on the day.

Thank you so much to Janet and Sian for coming to Abergavenny and helping us get ready for my wedding! I'm so thrilled I found Janet! From the start, she understood exactly what I wanted and really listened. I wanted to look like myself on the day, but also really special and Janet knew exactly what to do. She's wonderful to be around and Sian was amazing as well. Thank you, thank you!

I used Janet White Ashby & Co for my wedding hair and make up and they did a tremendous job considering I had a very last minute wedding! Would definitely recommend.

Janet to be so helpful and sweet. She made me feel so at ease on a normally stressful morning.
This review is now long overdue. First of all, I want to say THANK YOU Janet! Me and my husband got married in July this year and just weeks before the wedding I still didn't have anyone to do my hair and feared I would have to do it myself or travel to a hair dresser the morning of my wedding. After some Googling I found Janet's website and sent her a message to enquire about availability. I quickly received a response back for booking both a trial and advising availability on our wedding day. I went to Janet's house for the trial, and I was so pleased with the result. Janet really listened to what I wanted and took care in making it exactly right. I also really liked that she took photos of my hair in case of an emergency, so that any one of her associates could pick it up if ever needed. This filled me with a lot of confidence. On the morning of the wedding I decided I wanted some eucalyptus added to my hair, this was not discussed in the initial trial but was not an issue at all with Janet who made my hair prettier than I could have imagined. Seeing as my wedding was one of the only weddings I have been to, I found Janet to be so helpful and sweet. She made me feel so at ease on a normally stressful morning. Couldn't recommend Janet White-Ashby & Co. enough!

Start a skin care regime early rather than later, don't go for a facial the week of the wedding as this may bring impurities to the surface on the wedding day. Advice is given on hair tips leading up to the wedding.

How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?

Chatting to the bride and involving the bridesmaids keeping everyone entertained, make sure the bridesmaids do their job for the day, accepting the delivery of flowers etc.

What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?

Make-up should last all day, but more should be added for the evening, as the lights go down the day time make-up looks less in evening light, so add to the eyes, lips and cheeks. Carry Lipstick for top up through out the photographs.
