Business overview

An established, multi award winning, mobile hair and make-up service. We work with you to create your wedding day image. Covering S. Wales & beyond. Available for any occasion.

Hi, I'm Janet, welcome to Janet White-Ashby & Co.

My website, www.janetwhiteashby.co.uk

An established, multi award winning, mobile service for hair and make-up.

One of the first to start up a mobile hair and makeup service for brides, in South Wales, I began working in the industry over 20 years ago, realizing many Brides were then getting married in Manor Houses and Castles. I started my business to assist brides and their wedding parties to have the convenience of their hair and make-up done where ever they may be on the morning of their wedding, in a relaxed stress free environment.

Our aim before the wedding is to enhance our brides own beauty, working with them to create their wedding day image. At the trials we get to know the bride and her needs for her very own special day.

I have won international awards and have spent a number of years working in television, film, fashion and theatre. Most recently, we have won Best Bridal Hair (South & East Wales) at the 2014 Welsh National Wedding Awards, shortlisted for Bridal Make-Up, shortlisted for both Hair & Make-up 2015, again winning Best Bridal Make-up, and short listed for Best Bridal Hair 2016.

Based in Penarth, South Wales, my associates and I offer a mobile service covering South Wales including Cardiff, Bridgend, Swansea, Newport, Brecon, Monmouth areas for your convenience delivering hair and make-up services for weddings, proms and special occasions.

We provide the bride and her wedding party their perfect hair, make-up and beauty preparations for the special day, whilst creating a relaxed, stress-free environment.

BRIDE, Hair & Makeup ON THE DAY - £135. Hair & Makeup TRIALS - £145.

Wedding Party Hair & Makeup - ON THE DAY - £115.

Reviews

Fabulously skilled, flexible and accommodating.

Janet and her team specialise in natural look makeup; If you want to look like the best, OST polished version of yourself on your wedding day, she is the MUA to choose. I was really worried about getting my look right and getting the right shade foundation as a brown bride who doesn’t wear makeup day to day, but Janet put me at ease and really helped me to choose a look that would help me to feel like myself, and also tried and tested a few different shades until we got it right. She was so accommodating to my specific requests for my look (winged eyeliner, a big bouncy blow dry, headpieces for myself and my bridesmaids) and was a really calming presence on the day. Our hair and makeup looked fantastic and lasted all day. Would definitely recommend to all brides.

Perfect Bridal Hair :)

Janet was very kind and put me at ease on both the trial run and the morning of my wedding. She was very helpful in deciding what I wanted to do with my hair (I wasn't at all sure) and made me and my bridesmaids look perfect on the day. Everything was quick and skilfully done. Would 100% recommend her. I had a flower crown in the end and it stayed pinned in place all day. Absolutely no complaints.

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.

Friendly but so disappointing

My mum and I had our hair done in June for my wedding. Because I don’t live near Wales, I had a trial locally and hairdresser took multiple step by step photos for them. I was really pleased. Was meant to have 2 people doing hair but only had 1 which meant I was almost late for my own wedding and was quite stressful. It was evident that the photos had barely been glanced at as every aspect of my hair was different and I didn’t like it at all - but what can you do on the morning of your wedding? Can’t say that you don’t like it, can they do it again as there’s no time. So I just said thanks. My mum had an updo that was messier than expected but still looked nice. This had fallen out before the wedding was over (and I mean the ceremony and an hour of photos after, not the reception). Looking at my photos makes me sad - happiest day of my life to date but I just really don’t like my hair. It’s going to bother me forever and nothing I can do. 2 stars as they still delivered service.

Dear Rae, Saddened, over the last few weeks I have tried to contact you (to apologise and discuss) but my messages and calls have not connected us. Carol and I are so sorry for your disappointment. Over 20 years, I have supported bride’s unique circumstances, but regretfully I will no longer agree to achieving a style developed outside of our team unless a trial is confirmed with us as well. 100% exactness of replicating a style would be impossible. But I do believe that Carol did a wonderful job of getting an almost exact match for you. 3 hours were allocated for Carol’s work and did not warrant an assistant. Painfully, Carol did not receive criticism or negative feedback on the wedding day that she could react to. She was shown signs of appreciation, so this review came as a big shock. All said, I understand your devastation and wish that we could have connected directly sooner to discuss over the phone. I will always be contactable if you wish to discuss another time.

Excellent service!

I used Janet White-Ashby & Co for bridal hair and makeup and bridesmaids hair on my wedding day.
I had a trial with Sian a few weeks before who was so accommodating to the time and even came over to my house the same day she had an important party to be able to fit to my schedule. The trial was such a lovely experience, it was like having a friend over and I knew I was in good hands for the big day because my hair and makeup was just was I wanted.
On the day the girls were professional and helped keep me calm! The bridesmaids hair looked incredible and lasted all day (and night!). My makeup was natural and flawless, I had compliments all day about how lovely it looked and my hair was exactly how I wanted it. The girls even stayed longer to make sure my veil was securely pinned in place before I left the house.
The organisation and booking over email had been faultless. I would highly recommend Janet White-Ashby & Co for bridal hair and makeup.
