My name is Kirsty McCall. I am a freelance hair & make up artist, I run my own business and represent a fantastic Pro Artist Team. I am very lucky to be able to do a job that I absolutely love!! I travel all over the UK and the World making my Brides look beautiful!
Every image you see on this website (excluding the Pro Artists pages) is of hair & make up that I have done. I design and create this website myself and I do all emails and admin for my business personally.
I feel so passionate about my work and my Brides, I feel honoured to be part of their wedding mornings and create their dream hair and make up look! I still get excited for every one of my brides, from the trial, right up to the moment they put on their dress on the wedding day!
I am based in Dartford Kent but I travel wherever my Brides want me to go. I have done weddings in London, the south East, Somerset, Norfolk, Suffolk, Yorkshire, Leeds, Isle of Wight, South of France, Dominican Republic, Mykonos, Marbella and Kefelonia.
I have wanted to be a hair and make up artist since i was little. My Mum did a beauty course when I was 12 and she practised her make up module on me, I had never even put make up on my self at that point and didn't even know that you could do it as a job. But I did my Mums make up for fun and realised that I had a natural talent...that was it, I was focused and knew that I was going to be a Hair and make up artist!
I left home at 16 and moved to London to pursue my dream. I managed to get a place on the "BTEC Fashion styling for Hair and make up course" at the London College of Fashion where I trained for 3 years.
Alongside my training at college I worked in Selfridges, Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Bluewater and Space NK for Bobbi Brown, NARS, Clinique, Estee Lauder and Smashbox.
I have also trained at Toni&Guy, Terence Renati and Nicky Clarke. I have worked my way up to senior stylist positions and also was an assistant manager in a hairdressers in Kent. I am trained in mens barbering as well.
I have worked with many photographers on different commercial, fashion and advertising work, for companies such as Sony, BT, Red Bull, VISA, Britains next top model and lots of modelling agencies.
I started doing weddings in 2004 and fell in love with making Brides look perfect on their big days! I have been running my bridal hair & make up business since 2006. I have done well over 1000 weddings in that time!
My work and my Brides have been featured in many magazines. I am also a recommended suppliers for lots of beautiful wedding venues such as Cooling Castle Barn, Old Kent Barn, Hedsor House etc
I run the KM PRO TEAM where i have a fantastic group of artists, I hold regular training sessions so that they stay ahead of all the new trends and techniques!

Doing what I love...
This is me...I get bored with my own face! Haha! Luckily I can use make up and hair styling to change my look as often as I like. I thought it would be helpful for you to see lots of different make up looks on one face. The power of make up is amazing, it can help you transform, enhance and accentuate your look. It can lift your mood and help your confidence, playing with make up is my favourite thing to do! I'm very lucky to do it for a living! xx
