About Claire

Claire Wallace has over 20 years of makeup and wedding hairdressing experience. She started working in and around South London before moving onto a management position at a major salon. Claire then became part of an artistic team creating collections and preparing models for shows and photographic sessions. By 1999, Claire was not only working for herself but had also qualified and become a part time lecturer teaching hairdressing at a technical college. In 2003 she created her own brand ‘Claire Wallace Hairdressing’. Having begun specialising in wedding hair, Claire soon realised that there was a demand for wedding make-up too. She then trained in make-up through numerous courses including MAC, Jemma Kidd and Illamasqua. The combination of being able to offer the two complementary skills was a big success and before long Claire had gathered a great team of freelancers who worked with her, in and around London, Sussex and the South East, specialising in wedding hair stylist and make-up services. The team worked at many different wedding venues providing the highest quality professional wedding services.

Sarah's testimonial for Claire Wallace at Ash Tree BarnsThank you so much Claire for my gorgeous wedding hair & make up and for making me feel so calm and relaxed on the big day! I was absolutely amazed by the end result and felt so beautiful!!! I would recommend doing the trial, as I was able to try out the false eyelashes, which I’d never used before, and they really did make my eyes look incredible! Claire really listened to what I wanted and created a very natural look. Claire also did my mum’s hair and make up. My mum never usually wears make up and Claire did such a brilliant job. My mum looked and felt wonderful! Thanks again Claire, I’ll be recommending you to all of my family & friends.

Hayley's recommendation for Claire Wallace, Ash Tree BarnsI just wanted to say a massive thank you to Claire and Elloise for doing my hair and make up as well as my bridemaids’ hair. I was so happy with how it all looked and so impressed that our hair stayed put for the whole day! We all had lots of comments about how pretty our hair was and I loved my natural make up helping me to feel like me and not uncomfortable wearing lots of make up!

Natural wedding make-up. Courtesy of big big thank you from the bottom of my heart to Claire for her amazing work. I was so impressed with how fanstastic she was- right from the booking, the trial, all the way to the big day, and all the communication in between.

She had fantastic ideas for my hair and makeup, and she created the exact natural look I was after. Myself, my bridesmaids and both mothers were beyond happy with their looks.

Claire made me feel very relaxed on the big day, and I would highly recommend her to anyone for a wedding or special occasion!!
