Reviews from the Wedding Industry Awards
"I chose James for my wedding from a recommendation from a good friend who had used him for her wedding. I didn't just make the choice based on how fantastic her hair looked at the wedding, but also based on how complimentary she was about James himself - he sounded like exactly my cup of tea!! Great fun
I have to also put in a comment about Amy at this point, who was also wonderful, warm and friendly at answering all my endless questions, and was always easily contactable whenever I needed her!!
I turned up to my trial, and had a pretty clear idea of what I wanted, and James listened to that and then surpassed my expectations - he blew me out the water with what he created, and then listened to the ideas I had for my bridesmaids as well. He put me completely at ease and I left my trial with no concerns at all, which meant I could get on with worrying about the 101 other things that a bride worries about in the lead up to her wedding. James really is an excellent hairdresser - he "gets it" - simple as that. I was so happy with what we had come up with for my bridal hair style I didn't stop raving for days.
I acquired one more idea between the trial and the wedding, and when James turned up on my wedding day at my parents house, he put me completely at ease with my inevitable nerves on the day, and was unnerved by my extra request of wanting my hairstyle to "channel Adele" - like I said - he gets it!
We had an absolute blast the morning of the wedding, and I have to say it was pretty relaxed considering. We laughed, we joked, we even busted out dance routines with James (of which I have photographic evidence), but he was there pretty much until I left for the wedding to help make sure that I looked perfect! He promised me it would be party proof and boy was it....in fact, the first team job as man and wife for me and my new husband was trying to get my hairstyle undone at the end of the night, it was that good! What I also liked about it, was that it looked beautiful no matter what angle you looked at it from.
The bridesmaids hairs were equally as beautiful, and he took on their ideas and created something individual for all of them (with the exception of my identical twin bridesmaids, Ali and Heli, who obviously had to have the same - still beautiful!)
I couldn't recommend James enough to brides or anyone else for that matter - he was excellent! I am looking forward to seeing him again as my best friend liked him so much she wants him for her wedding too - yay!
THANK YOU!! "
“From the first time I met James, he made me feel so relaxed it was like I’d known him for ages. I first met him when I was a bridesmaid for a friend. I couldn't think of anyone if rather have. He was prompt, and patient, and got exactly what I wanted first time. My bridesmaid hair was perfect to.”
“James was an absolutely fantastic part of our wedding day. From the minute he arrived he diffused the wedding day nerves, and filled the house with fun and humour. He gave me such confidence, and we absolutely loved our hair. James should be a part of every brides wedding day morning! He’s the best!”

“From the moment I arrived for my wedding hair trial and stepped into James’ boutique salon I felt so special.

“James offered an amazing wedding hair trial before the big day, blocking out an entire afternoon to ensure we got it just right. On the day of the wedding James arrived at 8am, staying until I left for the church. He had to do myself 5 bridesmaids and mother of the bride. All absolutely stunning”
“James White is an extremely talented stylist, who is the best in the business. His Bridal dos are stylish, elegant and just incredible he deserves the award”

“James is the only hairdresser we have ever come across who is able to listen to your thoughts and ideas and put them into practice. He give valuable honest advice and so he won’t let you look less than 100% your best and won’t let you leave with hair you are not 100% happy with!”
“Right from the moment we got in touch with James, it was like we had known him for years. Very personable, great listener with a realistic vision of what I wanted to achieve for my hair on my wedding day. He was always welcoming, happy and upbeat, but totally focused and professional in his job.”
“Absolutely amazing! Perfect!”
“Just excellent all round and I have been back to him for my hair since”
“Living in Dubai I had booked a stylist remotely & when I finally had a practice it was a disaster! Fortunately, I found James, the week before the wedding. He had the day free and immediately put me at ease with his confidence and ability. He knew straight away what I wanted and did an amazing job.”
“Everything about James’s service was exceptional. He’s an unbelievable stylist – I never thought my hair could look so good! He created different styles for me & my 5 bridesmaids & all my guests commented on how beautiful our hair was. He is the perfect stylist & I can’t speak highly enough of him!”
“I really cant fault James and the service I received. He understood the style/theme of hair that I was after and we tried a few hair styles on our initial meeting to find the right one. And on the day, everyone was saying how amazing the hair was, and he was such good company on the day as well.”
“James provided an outstanding service, he was professional, warm, friendly, calming, but more importantly the quality of the hair for myself, bridesmaids and my mother was exceptional. I love James’ ability to make hair look effortless and elegant. The styles are timeless and natural. Perfection!”
“I can not find any fault with James on my wedding day, he did my hair and my four bridesmaids, we all loved our hair. James was like part of the family whilst also being very professional. He made me feel relaxed and calm and nothing was to much trouble…I absolutely loved my wedding hair.”
