My name is Tanya and I am a Hair and Makeup artist. It still fills me with excitement when I say these words (even at the age of thirty twelve!)
I’m lucky enough to have spent my entire career in this industry and not a day goes by when I’m not boasting that I have the best job in the world. Beginning my career as a hair colourist, before mastering the scissors and styling, working in London as well as overseas, salon based for many years. Moving more towards creating styles for events and photography, my desire to create “the complete look” just grew too strong and I took the step to train once again in Makeup.
I began studying with Illamasqua London. Famed for their “not so mainstream “approach to makeup, beautiful but radical makeup creations. Feeling I needed to perfect a more natural approach to makeup it did not take long to make the decision to study with Kristina Gasperas. Wedding Industry award Winner 2013, and this years judge for the same awards. Not only did I learn so much with this talented lady, but I was honoured to accept a place on her team in 2016. So now a member of the “K-Team”, I am lucky enough to be inspired, and continuously trained by this talented team of hair and makeup experts and now I have the pleasure to call them my friends.
Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to hearing from you.
DO SOMETHING YOU LOVE AND YOU WILL NEVER WORK AGAIN!
Tanya and Amy did my hair and makeup for my wedding in June. Not only was the result amazing but they put me at ease and made the start to our day even more special. I just wanted to say another thank you and put it out there just how fantastic these guys are!
From the moment of my trial I knew I had made the right decision by booking Tanya, she was creative and patient, and knew exactly what i wanted and she was willing to travel all the way to Poland to be there for my special day!
On the day Tanya was incredibly professional, arriving bright and early at my house! It was lovely to have her there on the morning of my wedding, she is just the kind of person to have around on such an important day, she made us all feel calm and relaxed. I had lots of compliments on my hair and can not recommend Tanya highly enough. She worked so hard on the day making sure myself and my maid of honour looked perfect.
Thanks again, you really were fantastic, i wish you could do my hair all the time!!!
Tanya did my bridal hair and gave me the most pretty curls for my wedding. She arrived at the crack of dawn and worked for hours on my very long hair.
Tanya has the most calming effect, even on a stressed out, worrying bride, which i definitely was, you can not help but feel enveloped in her energy.
When she had finished completing my dream bridal look, and i was having my makeup done by Inga, Tanya was kind enough to wrap gifts which i hadn’t yet managed to get round to, which meant i had one less thing to worry about. She went above and beyond, for which i was so grateful. My wedding morning was perfect thanks to this beautiful and very talented woman and i really could not recommend her high enough!
I am so glad my trial with another company didn’t work out and i had to find a new company and in turn found Tanya. She the nicest caring nothing is too much trouble lady I have ever met.
The morning, because of Tanya was as calm as it could be.
She went beyond her call of duty and what I’d paid for.
Helped with my daughter and my niece all the way to the ceremony door, and my Mum thought the same.
I felt amazing and Tanya had a lot to do with that.
She is a credit to your company (K-Team) and I’m so glad she played a part in my wedding.
Where do I even start when describing how incredible the K-Team were on my wedding day. From the moment I walked into my trial with Tanya (hair) and Inga (make-up) I felt at ease. The girls were so friendly and chatty and after showing them a few pictures of what I liked and telling them a bit out my upcoming big day they seemed to understand exactly what I had in mind. I left my trial so happy (I even made my friends take me out for dinner that night so I could shown off my hair and make-up). I had complete peace of mind that Tanya and Inga were going to make me look beautiful on the big day.
On the day itself, Tanya and Inga were already at the venue and setting up when my bridal squad and I arrived. In total there were 5 bridesmaids, 2 mums and myself to get ready. With there being so many of us there I expected it to be pretty chaotic but this was not the case at all. The ladies were incredible and so professional whilst helping create a chilled-out, fun environment. Getting ready in the morning was actually one of my favourite parts of the day! My hair and make-up turned out exactly as I had hoped and all of my bridesmaids said they’d never felt so beautiful. The K-team didn’t just apply generic hair styles or make up to my friends but instead, took the time to find out what style they would like and then tailored it to what would suit them.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tanya and Inga to anyone who wants to look and feel like the best version of themselves on their wedding day. They bring something extra special with their wonderful personalities and incredible hair and make-up talent and I am forever grateful for their help on my own big day.
I can not thank you enough for everything yesterday, you are an angel and you and Sylwia made the morning so calm and special.
I was so breath taken with how I, my mum and the girls looked, it surpassed every expectation.
I can’t thank you enough - you are an amazing person with such a wonderful energy and kindness!
Tanya, you were absolutely fantastic for at the venue , but also at the trial and makeup lesson too. Not only was you a very calming and positive influence but I also felt confident and happy with the results.
At the trial and makeup lesson, you really listened to everything I said about the look I was going for and I really appreciated you taking the extra time to come around house of Fraser, looking at eye colours for me.
It was a pleasure to meet you and I wish you all the best.
Kristina and Tanya ….
Thank you so so much for doing such an lovely wedding makeup and hair service for myself and my bridesmaids. You were both so patient and thorough and nothing was to much for you.
You made the morning of my wedding day retreat and kept as all calm - especially the lavender spray lol.
I have the most amazing photos of my hair and makeup which I will email you. Everyone was saying to my bridesmaids, Mum, and myself how lovely our hair and makeup was so thank you so much. I also wanted to say thank you for the makeup trial which was so much fun and I loved all the styles you created Tanya.
You are both so talented and kind and I was so glad I found you to do a fantastic job and I can’t thank you enough.
I wanted to write and say a huge thank you for being the perfect makeup and hair expert for my special day.
From my multiple hair sessions and inability to choose my hair style ha ha to being a calm and positive presence on the day itself, you were so patient and lovely that I alway felt completely at ease.
Most importantly, I don’t know how I would have managed without you on the day itself. Not only did you get my hair and makeup done beautifully but you also helped to chivvy my bridesmaids into action, helped get my shoes and veil on and deliver me to my Dad who was waiting for me in the car for the church.
I really appreciate your personal touch throughout the hair and makeup journey.
You guided us so expertly and I completely trusted in you which was so important to me. I am particularly nervous when I started looking for someone that would understand asian features so I’m glad you got it spot on.
I felt so confident on my special day even though I never wear my hair back normally. I did not have to worry about touch up through the day with the thoughtful pot of lips you left me for the day.
Thank you so much and wishing you an amazing 2018, `I will be recommending you to all my friends in the future.
My bridal experience with Tanya doing my hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted and more.
The trial was extremely helpful, working out exactly what I wanted as Tanya helped me choose a style and create a look that enhanced my features so i looked the best version of me. My hair and makeup was perfect and did not need touching up at all throughout the day.
It was really important to me that I chose hair and makeup artist who made me feel comfortable and at ease. Tanya was like one our friends getting ready with us. BuT professional, friendly and supportive when I started to feel nervous.
Above all Tanya is a lovely person who went above and beyond to ensure I felt confident about how I looked on the biggest day of my life...
Thank you so much Tanya.
