Founded in 2006, Melissa Oldridge LTD, was created to bring accessible, affordable and bespoke hair and makeup to your special day and creative events. Our service has been designed to be visual in order to make finding the right style and stylist for you easy. You can search to see which stylist represents your look the best or ask us for a recommendation.
We want this process to feel as easy and effortless for you as possible.
Our aim is to ensure you are happy, relaxed and content with your desired finished look.
I have taken a long time to hand pick my team to ensure my clients have the best quality for the best price. It’s important to me that each client feels heard and walks away looking and feeling beautiful
We cater for small or large bookings. We are very flexible with the amount of people per booking as we can arrange for more than one stylist to be available.

She has experience working with brides on their Wedding Day, as well as a successful background working as part of the hair and makeup team on top TV programmes, Films, Fashion, Commercial and Editorial shoots.
