Hello, I'm Heather, Beauty Therapist, Makeup Artist and proud owner of Heather Alexandra Beauty & Bridal Makeup, a small business
based in the old market town square, situated in the heart of Somerset.I provide a range of beauty services at my salon in Wincanton and I am very happy to travel to the bordering counties of Dorset, Wiltshire & Devon to make up Brides and their bridal party.
So, let me tell you a little bit about myself and just how my business started...
Having had a long standing love affair, for over 25 years, with the world of beauty, makeup and all things 'girlie' from a very young age (brought about by my wonderful, elegant, late mum, Alexandra) as I grew older the burning ambition to train as a Makeup Artist and Beauty Therapist followed me.
Family and friends over the years have asked me for manicures, to shape their eyebrows, to do their wedding and special occasion makeup, as well as provide pamper parties, so it is fair to say that this ambition has been well fuelled and one that has remained throughout my life. The passion to follow my dream never left me
and I am now living out my dream in a job I adore in the world of beauty and makeup which is ever changing and ever growing in possibilities and I am truly overwhelmed that I am the Owner of my very own Beauty Salon.
After a long decision, and the wonderful support of my darling husband and devoted family and friends, I finally made the break from my full time career to take an almost uncharacteristic plunge, returning to college and trained as a
Beauty Therapist, embracing every moment of the journey, and, making some wonderful new friends along the way.
I went on to do further training with one of the world leading cosmeceutical organisations in Mineral Makeup,
Jane Iredale, gaining my qualification as a Makeup Artist, but I didn't want to stop there so I went on to do even more training with The London School of Beauty and Makeup, gaining a qualification in Bridal makeup. This has since led to dozens of bridal makeup bookings each year, Wedding photoshoots, making-up catwalk models at Wedding Showcases, and excitingly, even more clients requesting lessons allowing them to apply their own makeup.
I have featured in Bride & Tonic, Vow Magazine and Weddings In the Wilds publications and also received a prestigious Award from LUX Life Magazine (2018). 2019 is rapidly becoming even busier than previous years, with even more photoshoots, brides as well as lots more going on in the salon.
I strive to learn and train further in the world of beauty and makeup, sampling new products and
being able to offer a larger range of knowledge and treatments to my clients and brides in future years to come. So far,
I have really enjoyed every moment following the growing beauty industry and I absolutely love attending events and shows.
I cannot wait to hear more about your beauty requirements, whether bridal makeup or becoming
one of my wonderful regular clients for every day beauty needs, this career is a journey of discovery and one which I love.
Lots of love,
