- Expert Team: Our handpicked artists are leaders in their field, creating breathtaking bridal looks, and ensuring you look and feel your best. They will work with you to create the look you want for the day. Let’s face it, getting ready on the day is half the fun, so our aim is to want to work with you to collaborate to make sure you love your look, but also have the best time getting ready, enjoy it and not be rushed.

So many times we have been called by other Brides in tears on their day because another Artist they had booked was sick and canceled doing their wedding, on the day! It breaks our heart, and we always try to help, but because of this we know that unexpected situations happen, but our team setup ensures your wedding day plans remain intact. We guarantee you won’t be left without an artist on your special day, so you’re in safe hands!
WHAT OUR BRIDES SAY
“I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for looking after my hair and makeup for our wedding in November. I just had the best day and it was thanks in part to you for taking good care of me and my bridal party. As you can see from the photos we looked fabulous and it was thanks to your skill and professionalism.
Thanks very much for all your help in keeping me calm on the big day. For the record, it was the best day of my life and I am so pleased I chose you to take care of a very important job!”
Hayley-Jane and Gavin Walker
“Thanks so much to The Beauty Hub! We had the best day getting ready, laughing and joking around, it was such a fun experience on my wedding day! The girls and myself loved our makeup and hair, we felt so beautiful on the day! I would recommend to all brides to work with The Beauty Hub as this is a great team you can trust on your big day! Thank you from all of us girls!”
The Beauty Hub is truly amazing. Thank you for accommodating me and making the big day so glamorous. Everything was flawless. Nicki and Christie are friendly and professional. The hair and makeup lasted throughout the entire day, as Nicki confidently assured me. I received so many compliments from my family and friends. I give all the credit to these guys!
I found the Beauty Hub at the Bride and Groom Show and instantly knew I would book with them. Dealing with Christie was so easy and she was helpful, responsive and so lovely. I had a trial for my hens and loved it! Thanks Christie! We loved our makeup!
“I definitely recommend The Beauty Hub! Christie was very accommodating of my high allergy risk, and Nicki was absolutely fabulous – very receptive to feedback even when that feedback was just me, vaguely gesturing at my face. Nicki did hair and makeup for my wedding and it could not possibly have been better! She even dealt with my mom last minute trying to get a necklace over my head after my hair was already up. Overall, definitely recommend these ladies, and although I’m very sure I won’t be getting married again in the future, I hope we have a chance to work together again!”

Are all the images on your website of work the Team have actually done?
Yes! We pride ourselves on our high quality of work over the years, and love to show it off.
What Makeup Brands do you use?
We use all the top international makeup Brands such as MAC, Smashbox, Napoleon, Bobbi Brown, Makeup Forever, to name just a few. Plus we also have a Full Mineral Range, a Cruelty Free Range and Vegan Brushes on Request
All our artists carry a range of product, as different products are often more suited to different clients. However, some of our artists stock mainly 1 brand ie. mainly MAC, or for the ‘mineral’ makeup lovers Jane Iredale.
Do you have a Travel Fee?
There are no additional travel costs if your location is within a 15min drive from your closest local Artists “base”. If you are outside 15mins then Travel Time/Costs are $1 per km/return.
If all the Artists in your area are already fully booked at the date/time you are requesting, then we will send an Artist into you area, in these cases Travel Time/Costs are $1 per km/return, and we will advise you of the cost at the time of booking.
For all inner city Hotels/Locations parking time/costs are charged at a standard $30 per Artist, unless you advise us you have Free parking available.
For all other travel outside Auckland or to Waiheke Island please see our ‘Destination Weddings’ section.
How long does Makeup and Hair usually take?
In general, we like to allow 2 hours for a Bride on the wedding day (1 hour for hair and 1 hour for makeup).
For all other guests (or occasions) we like to allow 1 ½ hours.
Times may change depending on the styles you have chosen, but rest assured, all our Artists are professionally trained to work to a time schedule that has been designed around your day.
Do I need a Trial?
99% of our Brides have a trial and we highly recommend it. The trial is a fun day where you get to see it all come together.
We suggest you collect photos of styles you like to show your Artist. Pinterest is a good start to search for hair and makeup styles. We can then discuss these with you and suggest what would suit your personal features, the style of your wedding, and your dress, before we start. Then together we can design your dream look.
For our International brides flying into New Zealand we can arrange a skype call to discuss plans with your artist if you are limited with time and won’t be able to fit in a trial prior to the wedding.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
Yes, to confirm your date, time slot and Artists we require a deposit, with the balance due on the wedding day in cash or eftpos. The deposit amount is different for each client as it depends on the number of services/number of Artists/location etc. Once your booking has been booked into our system we will email you an invoice which includes your deposit amount and the balance due on the day. Please note your booking is not confirmed until we receive your deposit.
Can you cater for large weddings?
We have a large team of 15 Artists, plus more part-time Artists if needed, that can cater for large weddings, to have you all ready on time.
Plus we can arrange extra Artists for additional family, friends, and guests at different locations. (Fun facts – our largest wedding was 24 x Bridesmaids and our largest Corporate Booking in 1 day was 120 x People!)
Do I need to buy a lipstick or powder for touch-ups?
We provide all our clients with a complimentary test pot of your lipstick colour and an applicator for touch-ups. We also sell mineral powder and lipsticks/lipgloss colour should you wish to purchase. Powder is recommended for the hot summer months! Our powders are AMAZING and can be worn as a foundation for day to day use after the wedding – you’ll love it!
