for creative wedding hair by zarla

Zarla made me feel very relax on my special day. My hair looked amazing after she done it. I had lots of compliments from everyone. I would fully recommend Zarla for doing special occasion/wedding hair.



Zarla has been doing my hair for a number of years so I didn't need to look any further for someone to make my hair beautiful for my wedding day. She knew exactly what I wanted in my trial and makes wedding hair look so easy to do. Zarla didn't just do my hair but my 5 bridesmaids and my 2 flower girls - she worked amazingly and in sync with the make up artist and it was so stress free.


Everyone complimented the hair styles, they stayed in all day and she did not leave until they were perfect. Zarla is a perfectionist and it really shows in her work.


Thank you once again Zarla.



I booked Zarla from seeing her beautiful images on Instagram, which had so many flawless brides that I knew i’d be in good hands.


I’m a self confessed very fussy customer, and Zarla hit the nail on the head with my hairstyle at my trial, which put me at ease straight away. She went above and beyond what I asked her to do, and was punctual, friendly and unflappable on the day of our wedding. I would highly recommend her to any of my friends, I couldn’t have been happier with the results.



I was really nervous about organising hair and make up for my wedding as I wasn't sure what to expect, there are so many people out they and at very different prices!


I stumbled upon Zarla's website and photos, and instantly knew this was the person to do my hair. When I first met Zarla she was so welcoming and lovely putting both my mum and I at ease straight away. We talked through ideas and she really was helpful in helping me decide on the style.


Zarla was so helpful in fact that I changed hairdressers immediately after meeting her and have had my hair cut and coloured by Zarla ever since that first trial.


On my wedding day Zarla kept us all calm and was very professional with timings. She works with the lady who did my make up all the time so together they timed the day perfectly... So perfectly that the bridal party even had time to enjoy a nice glass of champagne whilst waiting for the car to arrive, it was such a lovely and relaxing atmosphere getting ready.


Without a doubt I would thoroughly recommend Zarla for bridal hair. You will not regret it!



Zarla is amazing. Her talent, her personality, her calmness. My hair was the best thing about the entire day! It stayed in place, everyone loved it and I couldn't have been happier.


I showed Zarla an image from the internet of something I liked and within less than an hour of our trial, she had created it and it was even better than I had asked. Amazing. Having Zarla with us on the morning getting ready was fab, Zarla is a great laugh and it was lovely to have her around. Would highly recommend to my friends.



I chose Zarla to do my hair for my wedding after visiting her website and being really impressed, and I have to say, that after meeting her I wasn’t disappointed as she is absolutely fantastic. She had lots of amazing ideas, but what she actually did with my hair was magic and it genuinely made me feel even more special. I trusted her completely to do something wonderful and she did – every time I caught sight of myself in the mirror I had to do a double take and couldn’t help smiling. She is a really talented hairdresser and I can’t recommend her highly enough - thank you for everything, you are amazing!




My sister organised the hair as a treat for herself (bride) and me. I had no firm ideas what I'd like doing apart from a messy up do with some plaits! Zarla knew exactly what would work and achieved a style that exceeded any expectations I had!! It was much commented on on the day, and when I returned home the general comment from friends who saw the pictures was "Fab hair!"


I would happily recommend Zarla to anyone looking for a fab hair do for a special occasion.


Lucy's sister

Zarla did my hair, my 3 bridesmaids and 3 other ladies hair for my wedding day in April 2016 and we couldn't have been happier with the results.


She was friendly, efficient and professional throughout and helped us all (especially myself) stay calm throughout the getting ready process. I had every trust in her that she would do a great job.


I'd had a trial a few weeks prior where Zarla gave me a few style options to my taste and I went away to consider which I liked best which definitely helped me decide what I wanted.


On the day she was punctual and worked very well with my make up artist to make sure everyone was ready on time.


I had many compliments from our wedding guests about my hair on the day and the style stayed in and curled without needing anything doing to it all day and evening.


I would highly recommend Zarla to others for their wedding hair.


Thank you Zarla!



Thank you so much for creating the perfect up-do for my wedding day Zarla. As well as making my hair look beautiful (from the start to the very end of a wonderful wedding day), you made me feel very at ease. My bridesmaids, mum, grandma and aunties also looked lovely and you did a great job to fit them all in! Thank you!



Zarla is such a pro and was absolutely the right person to style my hair for my wedding. She was so easy to deal with in booking a trial and arranging the big day itself. At my trial she understood exactly what I wanted by simply looking at some styles I'd found on Pinterest, and she was great at advising me on what would suit my hair and the neckline of my dress. I came away confident that she'd do a great job...and on the big day she did just that!


She brought her own imagination and flair and created a beautiful do which lasted all day and lots of dancing that night. I'd highly recommend Zarla to friends and family . . . in fact, I already have!



If you're looking for someone to create a perfect hair style tailored specifically for you then look no further than Zarla!


My wedding hair was everything I had hoped for and more - I had so many lovely comments about my hair on the day so thank you Zarla.



A friend recommended Zarla after I started having problems with my booked hairdresser, who was difficult to contact and didn’t make me feel special. Right away Zarla saved the day and made me feel like I was in the right hands! So calm and efficient right from booking through the trial and the big day itself. She not only made me look amazing, but worked easily with my two bridesmaids who both have very short thin hair and didn’t think they could have ‘up do’s’ as well. I felt so calm being in her hands, she gave great advice on my style as well as the right tiara and fitting the veil. And best of all, my hair stayed up and looking amazing all night!
I couldn’t recommend Zarla highly enough, thank you so much!!



From initial chats right through the day itself, Zarla was brilliant. She brought my ideas to life and I couldn't be happier with the hair she did for myself and my bridesmaids.  She was so good my younger sister went on to book her for her own wedding! Thank so much Zarla.



Zarla is a hair genius! She came to my rescue a few weeks before my September 2015 wedding after I had been let down by  another hairdresser. She immediately understood exactly what I wanted and she is so friendly and warm that I felt in safe hands straight away. The finished result was beautiful and I got lots of compliments on the wedding day.


On the wedding day itself she was a calming and helpful presence, seeming to enjoy the hustle and bustle of wedding prep as much as all of us- she seemed so interested in all our plans for the day and I genuinely felt that she cared. I was so impressed with everything Zarla did for me that I have now been back to see her several times for my regular cut and colour.


I am really picky about hairdressers and have been through several locally- however Zarla has a fantastic understanding of hair and what suits different face types etc and I really feel like when I am there for my appointment that I am her only focus and she will go over and above to get a result I am happy with. I could not recommend her highly enough, especially for weddings. 


Thanks Zarla- you are fab x



I was recommended Zarla by a friend for my wedding day and I’m so grateful for that. I wasn’t sure what I was trying to achieve but Zarla suggested the perfect style for me and my dress. She arrived promptly on the day and I was so pleased with the outcome when I looked in the mirror that there were nearly tears! The styles put together for my bridesmaids were also beautiful and I know how pleased they were too. All of our hair styles stayed put throughout the day, even in spite of some rain. Thank you again so very much!



Zarla was recommended to me by my best friend and she surpassed all expectations. I couldn't believe what Zarla could do with my hair, it was completely transformed and exactly what I wanted on my wedding day. I can't thank Zarla enough for creating such an amazing hairstyle for me and helping make my wedding day so special.



I couldn't think of anyone but Zarla to do my hair on my wedding day. Zarla did the most amazing job on my hair and also on my bridesmaids. She listened to what I wanted and she knew what would suit me and what wouldn't. I went with it up in the end and it looked fantasic! She went the extra mile and helped put my veil on after I put on my dress.


She is an amazing hairdresser. She's a 10 out of 10. I will recommend her to everyone. Thank you for making me feel great on my special day.


Sarah Jayne

Zarla was absolutely amazing from start to finish. When I first met her at my trail she instantly put me at ease, I didn't really know what I wanted to have done for my hair, other then up, but she styled it beautifully.


On the day itself Zarla did hair for myself, 4 bridesmaids and a blow dry for my mum, she was fantastic with them all, and everyone said how professional and she is. My hair looked AMAZING! It stayed in place all day and was perfect. I highly recommend Zarla, she is brilliant.


Holly Wakefield

I cannot recommend Zarla enough as a hairdresser from just my regular styling to the most important day of my life. Throughout the process from the initial consultation on the style and accessories, Zarla took on board my requests, matched them beautifully to my dress and helped me accentuate with hair accessories recommended from local sources.


She used her creative flair and expertise to give me a style that felt very comfortable on the day, yet stayed well in place from the wedding, well in to the reception evening despite the amount of battering it took!


Zarla’s initial consultation let me put my own expressions of how I saw my hair and then took it to the next level with what appeared to be very little effort but with all things that look effortless, a great deal of skill is put in.


On the wedding day as you would expect, nerves were high as I had a short deadline between make up and attending the ceremony, but Zarla worked with very calming efficiency and exactness to the original trial. She was unfazed and completed my style with plenty of time to spare and a lot of reassurance which was very welcome.


Should you be looking for a wedding stylist that is flexible, talented and has that extra creative edge to make your hair really stand out even with the most classic styles, then Zarla is definitely the number one stylist in the area.


Zarla has been styling my hair for over 10 years now and always knows exactly what look I am aiming for. I always leave her salon feeling confident as her cut and colour skills are second to none and I am forever receiving compliments from people asking who and where I get my hair done.


We have been planning the cut and colour for my recent wedding day for over a year to make sure it looked exactly how I wanted on the special day and the results of that were fantastic. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Zarla to friends and family.



Zarla was a calm and resourceful influence on my wedding day, meaning that we could enjoy getting ready without worrying. She dealt with the very different hairstyles of the bridesmaids to give an excellent complimentary effect, and even had time to fit in two extra people at short notice. My husband wants me to have my hair like that every day now!



Zarla was beyond perfect from start to finish. I was so thrilled that we came across her. I was looking for a curly half-up, half-down style with plait detail so I couldn't believe it when my dream look was already on her website!


Zarla also did my mum and four bridesmaids hair - we gave her a stupidly tight time scale (and a horribly early start) but she's such a professional that it wasn't a problem at all. The end results were great. Classic styles but with a contemporary twist and plaits which really suited the girls, their dresses and the overall feel of the day.


I can't recommend Zarla enough, she is a great person to have around on your wedding day - she's incredibly calm and puts everyone at ease, but with a fab and fun personality thrown in too! Nothing I write here is going to do justice to how great Zarla is! If you're looking for a wedding hairdresser - just book her now!



Zarla was amazing from initial contact to the wedding day, which for me is more important than someone just turning up and doing my hair. There are plenty of things to worry about on your wedding day but my hair was not one of them. I knew from her reputation and my trial that I could trust Zarla to make me look and feel amazing, which she 100 % achieved. She also did all of my bridesmaids’ hair and improvised for my mum on the day too and they all looked beautiful. Just brilliant


Thanks again Zarla!


Cate Cole

I've known Zarla for over 15 years and when it came to planning my wedding she was one of the first suppliers I wanted to get booked. Even before we confirmed the venue I made sure she was available on that day - I'd go as far as saying I would have chosen a different date if she wasn't available. Having seen her creations for my sister's, and a number of friends weddings there was no one else I would have trusted to get it right.


I'm very fussy about my hair so felt quite anxious leading up the the trial. I had a few ideas in mind but Zarla knew straight away which would suit my hair the best. I was overwhelmed with just how amazing it looked and felt.


On the wedding day itself, Zarla arrived early to ensure she'd have plenty of time for the rest of the bridal party - my mum and three bridesmaids. She suggested bridesmaid styles based on their dress style and we went with a natural up-do in the same style but with subtle differences according to their hair type. We were all thrilled with our hair and had a lot of comments about how beautiful the styles were.


On your wedding day you need calming influences to help negate any stress of the day . . . Zarla stayed calm and collected, even when I was freaking out about my dress not arriving on time!


Zarla is now my hairdresser and I won't trust anyone else to touch my hair!


Fiona Watson

Zarla was recommended to me by Lucy Houghton (Make up Artist), and I'm so very glad she was! I'm by no means a girly girl and was dreading trying to work out what I wanted my hair to look like but Zarla did an amazing job in taking some very vague ideas and creating an awesome style that I loved! Her calm and down to earth demeanour meant the whole morning prep was completely relaxed and we were ready in no time and with absolutely no fuss! Couldn't recommend her enough.



I decided rather late on to have my hair styled on my wedding day and I was so very glad that I did, and that it was Zarla's website that stood out when searching on the internet. I think it was a combination of the gallery and the style of the site that made me contact Zarla. From the first contact through to the trial and on the day I had confidence that I would have a style that I would be happy with and Zarla exceeded all expectations.



When I went to Zarla for my wedding hair trial, I’ve had a certain hairstyle in mind (messy but elegant, quite loose). During the trial, she didn’t just do one style but she ended up doing 3 different styles. Zarla knows my personal situation and knows that I have 4 children. Thanks to her extensive hairdressing experience and understanding we were able to come up with a style that would be ‘childproof’ and last all day and still look how I dreamt it would. She recommended bringing the hairstyle up to free up my neck, ready for the chubby little hands that like to wrap themselves around it. The style I wanted required clip in hair pieces and Zarla colour matched my natural hair to the ‘extra’ hair perfectly. You simply couldn’t tell where one ended and the other one began.


On the day, she was fantastic. She didn’t just styled my hair but my Maid of Honour’s, my 2 Brides Maids and my mum’s hair and she made us all look beautiful. She was calm and professional, was great with the young girls and worked fantastically with our photographers (we had 3 of them buzzing around the room and Zarla didn’t get destracted one tiny bit).


If you have a dream wedding in mind, then Zarla is the ONE that will make the hair part of that dream come true...


Lucia Bishop

Zarla isn't just my hairdresser - she has become a really good friend over the last five years. So when it came to wedding hair - I felt completely at ease - knowing she would make me look like a Princess and tame my locks. Considering she hadn't ever styled my Mum or my sister's hair before - she made it look so easy and as if she had worked with their hair for years.


The trial was a breeze and given free reign she knew exactly what would suit me - to go with my dress and veil. On the day itself, it was great to be in her hands, she knew our photographer Alistair and worked so well with him to allow him to get the shots he needed. My hair lasted all day - even until the next day! My Mum and sister looked fab too - one of Zarla's trademarks is making it all so easy!


Claire Newland

I absolutely loved my hair on my wedding day, Zarla listened to my ideas and transformed me and my bridesmaids into princesses for the day! She is a true professional, talented, reliable and friendly. She goes above and beyond what is required and I would recommend her without hesitation.


Jenny Johns

I just wanted to drop you an email to say that Zarla was fantastic on the trial and our big day, I struggle to keep my hair styled due to the weight and thickness and my curls stayed in all day and through to the evening. She was very friendly and professional throughout the process and is extremely talented. A big thank you to her for a fab job!


Beth Frowd

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Zarla for doing my hair for my wedding...she seemed to know exactly what I wanted during my hair trial, even with my total lack of being able to describe it properly! I absolutely loved my hair on the day and received so many compliments...she was absolutely fab on the day, professional, friendly and organised...she had even left time to style all of the last minute wedding guests who fancied getting their hair done on a whim...brilliant, I would recommend her to anyone! Thank you again!


Therese Beaini

I just wanted to write to thank Zarla for her incredible work on my wedding day. I heard about her through a friend and she came highly recommended but being very fussy about my hair I was still keen to do it myself! Thank goodness I didn't, the second I met her at my trial she understood exactly what I wanted and put me completely at ease. On the day she worked non stop to get myself, bridesmaids and brides mother sorted, all of which looked incredible. To say she went above and beyond would be an understatement and I could not have been happier.


Ella Fortune

I have known Zarla for a number of years and have seen what amazing work she has done for other friends weddings. I knew straight away I wanted her to do my hair for my wedding last year. During the hair trials Zarla knew exactly what sort of styles would suit me, and would go best with my veil and dress. On the day Zarla was amazing, doing my bridesmaids hair as well as mine. She was very calm and professional, and I was blown away with the results. It was even better than I had imagined. I would (and have) highly recommended Zarla to anyone and everyone and very happy I chose her for my special day.


Thank you again Zarla :)


Rachel Andrews

There was never a question who would be doing my hair for my wedding day.


Having rescued my hair many years ago Zarla has been working her magic ever since. One extremely clever and very talented hairdresser. Well there was no exception on my wedding day... simply stunning, I felt amazing and beautiful!


Zarla also did my mum's hair along with my three bridesmaids and achieved the look I had envisioned in no time at all, staying focused and professional throughout.


If you are looking for a hairdresser that stands out from the rest well STOP! look no further you've found her. Thanks again Zarla you made my already special day amazing!!!!!!


Dawn Saunders

Zarla went above and beyond to make sure my hair was perfect for my wedding day. I had every confidence in her, right from the professional advice she gave me at the trial, through to re-creating the hair on the wedding day. My hair was perfect, I wouldn't have changed a thing. Thank you xx



Zarla was recommended to me by my wedding make-up artist and I'm so glad she was! Amazing does not even describe her! I'm not particularly girly, so found the run-up to the wedding very overwhelming.


Normally a decisive person, I just couldn't describe how I wanted my hair, but Zarla encapsulated what I couldn't in a beautiful up-do. It looked amazing even when the party ended at 1 am! If I ever need my hair doing again I won't hesitate to contact Zarla.


She is a genius! She's even good at managing tricky BM's! Zarla is by far, a very talented and creative lady and I feel so lucky to have had her as my wedding hairstylist.


Harriet Fehners

When you’re planning the biggest day of your life, you want to look your best. With Zarla, you can be completely confident that she’ll make that happen. Not only does she create the most incredible hairstyles, but she’s honest. She’ll tell you straight if something won’t suit you or your dress. She’ll then work calmly, professionally and tirelessly to make you look like a million dollars. Best hairdresser in miles. Book her now, before someone else snaps up your date.



Not having a regular hairdresser and being a bit of a perfectionist I was worried about who was going to do my hair for my wedding but after being recommended Zarla by my Maid of Honour I decided to book. This turned out to be the best decision I could have made.

Being picky I wanted to have my trial straight away and although this was not her normal practice it was accommodated without a problem.

On the day I couldn't have asked for more. My hair was exactly what I wanted and more. Everyone commented on how beautiful and different it was and that it barely moved an inch! I also gave a rough (and slightly vague) idea of what I wanted for my Maid on Honour on the morning of the wedding; having not really given Zarla much to go on I wasn't sure what to expect but the finished product was exactly what I had in my mind!


Everything was perfect and I would highly recommend and use Zarla again. I now have a regular hairdresser!


Michelle Chapman

I have seen Zarla work on photoshoots where my dresses were modelled, so when it came to planning my wedding I knew instantly that I would like her to style my hair. I had complete confidence in Zarla and she was fantastic from start to finish, not only on the wedding day but in the weeks beforehand too when she created a style that suited my face shape, hair type and our outdoor handfasting wedding. On the day Zarla was calm, confident and worked like a Trojan, styling not only my hair but also my mum's and 5 bridesmaids.


Thank you Zarla!


Vikki Lafford

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for doing my hair for my wedding and also doing my three bridesmaids. I was so pleased with it and everyone commented on how beautiful it was. My bridesmaid's were also happy with their hair! You have been doing my hair for a number of years now and each and everytime I am 110% happy with it. I would highly recommend Zarla and you will not be disappointed!!


Amy Fuller

Travelled from Scotland to Basingstoke for family wedding and needed my hair put up for wedding, googled hairdressers in Basingstoke and found you. Fantastic customer service, answered all emails promptly and turned up at time agreed. Very friendly and put me at ease right away, it was obvious you knew what you were doing both, my daughter and I were delighted with our hair creations , not a hair out of place at end of night despite dancing the night away. If you ever decide to move to Scotland give me a call, I highly recommend You.


Many Thanks.
