COVID-19 Update
We are still working daily through the pandemic to answer any enquiries you may have about your wedding. In-fact now is the perfect time to get in touch. Regarding trial appointments we can take hair trials from 4th July 2020. As for makeup we are still currently awaiting government guidelines but hope to be able to offer this service again shortly when its safe to do so for both yourself and our team. As many 2020 weddings have been postponed to 2021, 2021 diary has filled up fast but we do still have some dates available and are now open for 2022 bookings.

Full Description
Once upon a time ... A girl called Nicola (a milk, no sugar type of girl) wanted to see what would happen if she mixed her life's passions together... Tea, hair styling and a love of the past 'Tea and Trim' was the result; a friendly company based in the heart of Sussex specialising in classic beauty. The services we offer are: luxury wedding hair, makeup and stylish hen parties. Our stylists are based in Haywards Heath and Brighton, covering East and West Sussex, Surrey and Kent. Our team host memorable hen parties and events; from pop-up photo shoots on Brighton beach to secret bohemian style tea parties with a twist. We are thrilled to have received so many thanks you' s from past clients on this tea filled journey and proud to be featured in many magazines, websites and blogs to include magazine Wedding, Red, Your Sussex Wedding and Etc and online blogs from Whimsical Wonderland Weddings to the much loved Festival Brides.

Absolutely thrilled with the results
Nicola was absolutely amazing at my trial and on my wedding day; she really listened to what I wanted and made the effort to understand my (sometimes problematic!) skin. On the morning of the wedding she was so calm, helpful and professional and I was absolutely thrilled with the final result. I could not recommend Tea & Trim enough!

You did such a beautiful job with our hair &makeup
Thank you for doing my hair and makeup for me & my bridesmaids. You kept me calm on the morning of my wedding and did such a beautiful job with our hair and makeup. You even stepped in and sorted my daughters hair out when the stress got too much for me! Thanks so much, Hannah xx

Highly recommend Tea and Trim to anyone
Nicola I can't thank you enough! Nicola done my hair and makeup for my wedding on the 18th April with the lovely Ellie. From the start Nicola was amazing with the trial (lots of great tips and advice and of course cups of tea) all the way through to the wedding day! On the wedding morning Nicola did an awesome job of my hair and makeup and made me feel nothing but relaxed and excited about the special day. As well as Ellie making my bridesmaids hair look beautiful. I would highly recommend Tea and Trim to anyone thank you so much again!!

The kind words and feedback from past clients

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Polaroid photos of bride and each of her bridesmaids pinned up like bunting on the morning of the wedding in the room everyone got ready in, very sweet.

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

I was a nervous bride myself so understand what its like to be anxious on the wedding morning. Rescue remedy is amazing I carry it in my hair and make-up kit in case someone needs it. My best advice would be to take a few moments on your own just before leaving for your ceremony. A few deep breaths in the fresh air or some alone time will be enough to keep those nerves at bay.
