meet jo Elizabeth
A wildling day-dreamer from the north, chasing her beauty dreams in the urban jungle.
Just like the Berocca advert once wisely proclaimed, my aim is to create bridal looks that are like “You, but in a really good day”
P.s I didn't take ALL my beauty advice from Vitamin supplements- don't worry!
Welcome to my little corner of the internet. If you're here to read about my journey as a bridal hair and makeup artist, just know that it involves a lot of hairspray, coffee, and under-eye concealer.
Sit back, relax, and let me regale you with tales of my adventures in hairspray and lipstick!
So, if there is one thing you should know about our time together, it is that I do not encourage it to be stuffy affair!
True to my northern roots, I love a good natter, throwing out some cheeky one-liners and always happy to hear girly gossip. I will also most definitely fueled by a caffeinated beverage or two. ( I’m obviously a flat white millennial- Please don’t judge me too harshly..they just taste damn good!)
Equally, I love my brides to feel like they can be themselves, relax and enjoy the process- because how often is it we really get to treat ourselves with such an experience?
To me, the best outcomes in the makeup chair are derived from collaborative mutual relationships with my clients, thus I have designed my services with this in mind- so you still feel like you. Just enhanced.
Get to know me
Early 2016 I had just completed a six month contract as a Beauty professional on-board an international cruise liner.
After working in luxury cosmetics retail for the better part of 6+ yrs [whilst gaining my beauty training and make-up degree] I was ready for a new challenge and decided to up-sticks from the North of England to London to become a freelancer.
( Side note: I have always loved a little adventure, and my motto is “You can always go home if you hate it”- turns out I didn’t.)
My light bulb moment came several months into my second year of “just-say-yes-to-everything-makeup-related” phase, whilst on a T.V set.
As I waited to do another round of makeup “checks”, I tucked into my third bored-to-tears-chocolate treat before 10am and began emailing a colleague who I was assisting with larger wedding bookings.
It dawned on me that although I enjoyed freelancing for the most part, my favourite energy came from weddings. Hands down. I adored the clients, the suppliers, the dress’s….the shoes! ( I am tiny and LOVE a heel) I liken the process to my favourite part of any night out- getting ready with ya besties!
I set out to build a wedding business, and Jo Elizabeth Hair and Makeup has been my passion project ever since!
Five years on (and a a global pandemic later) we are continuously evolving and serving 70+ weddings a year!
Can’t wait to hear from you!
“My professional training, extensive high end product knowledge and expertise enables my brand to tailor your wedding makeup and hair style to you and you alone.
