Just wanted to drop you an email to thank you again for my amazing hair and for being a wonderful addition to my wedding prep morning! I felt so at ease with you, and the whole gang helping me get ready and it really made the whole day more special. And that’s before we even mention the hair! How you styled my hair was exactly what I wanted, was incredibly beautiful, and looked fantastic all day. I got so many compliments and was just thoroughly impressed by your work! Same goes for my mum and sister. 
You’ll have seen some already but I’ve attached a few more pictures from Iona, for your collection, portfolio, to share or not to share, whatever works best for you!
All the very very best to you, and I shall most definitely recommend you to anyone needing hair styling down your way. Philippa (Bride) August 2021

I just wanted to send you a quick thank for the amazing job you did on Saturday. Everyone’s hair looked great and we were all chuffed with it! My hair was exactly how I imagined it 🙂 The open topped car didn’t do too much damage either. You made us feel so relaxed during the morning which I really appreciated, especially as the rest of the day felt like such a whirlwind. Chelsie (Bride) June 2021

I just want to say a massive thank you for doing our wedding hair. You were absolutely amazing, we loved having you! Thanks for being so chilled and flexible with everyone. Not that you need it but I’ll recommend you to all my friends!! Jo (Bride) December 2019

Ellie is AMAZING!
Having to do my hair along with 5 bridesmaids, all different styles, and some bridesmaids had no idea what they wanted – a total breeze for her!
She was amazing to have around for the morning, chatting away and making us feel even more chilled than we were!
I honestly cannot rate Ellie highly enough, she is absolutely incredible at what she does, and she deserves all the success she gets Vikki (Bride) September 2019

Highly recommend The Up Do Girl for the most gorgeous hair styling! Ellie was an absolute dream to have around on my wedding morning to do both mine and my bridesmaids hair. Her relaxed, happy and calming personality alongside her absolutely amazing talent at hair is truly the winning combination. She went above and beyond, exceeding all expectations and I really do hope our paths cross again one day 🌟🌟🌟🌟Caroline (Bride) September 2019

Wow what can i say about Ellie?! The word amazing just doesn’t sum up this girls work enough!! ❤️
From the offset at my trial I described what I would love and Ellie made my dream a reality!!
On the morning she kept me calm when things got very busy and I can honestly say i’ve never felt as beautiful as I did that day!! Thank you from myself and the bridesmaids for making us look and feel so gorgeous! ❤️Katrina (Bride) August 2019

 Where do I even start?! Ellie was absolutely amazing!! From my hair trial to my wedding day, she was professional, organised and so very friendly. She put me completely at ease and worked wonders with my fine and thin hair. This woman is simply the best and she made me and my Mum and Bridesmaids feel like a million dollars on my wedding day. She even cleared up our mess in the chaos of leaving to get to our wedding (what a saint!) The girls and I all said that come the end of the morning, she felt like one of our close friends and that she would be joining us to the ceremony! Our hair stayed in all day and I was just sad to take it out in the evening. I’ll recommend her to anyone because she is just the best lady you will ever meet and she will make you feel like a queen. Thank you again Ellie!! 💕🙌🏻 Helen (Bride) August 2019

Thank you Ellie for creating a perfect hair style on my wedding day. Also for the rest of the bridal party who loved their hair styles. You were great to have around on the morning of the wedding, we had a great time. I would highly recommend you to anyone 😊 xxx Laura (Bride) August 2019

You have to book Ellie! I swear she sprinkles a bit of magic everywhere.
I booked a hair trial at the beginning of the year and went with an idea of what I wanted and we agreed to do a few styles to see and we got to the second one and that was it! Ellie helped me to be the boho bride I wanted to be and I had so many complements on my hair it was unbelievable. I loved it she is so talented.
She also worked on my bridesmaid’s,sister’s and mother of the bride’s hair and she did some gorgeous half up and “down do’s” as well.
She has the loveliest personality and she is a pleasure to have around!
Thank you for helping me through my nervous morning as well – I couldn’t have done it without you.
Xx Allie (Bride) July 2019
Ellie went above and beyond! I honestly wouldn’t change a thing. Ellie worked her magic on my bridesmaids, Mum and of course me! She even popped upstairs to help out the groom! The hairstyles were amazing and stayed in all day. Close to the ceremony we were running out of time so Ellie helped by going to get our bouquets and helping my Mum put on her button hole. She brought joy and laughter to the morning and I can’t thank her enough! I would definitely recommend The Updo Girl! Amy (Bride) June 2019
What do I recommend about Ellie? Well.. EVERYTHING.
• First of all, you must have a trial, not because Ellie doesn’t know what she’s doing but because her cat is the most adorable thing on this planet.
• Next, Ellie is the loveliest, kindest, and best person to have around on your wedding day. She calms you down, as she is just such a lovely presence!
• Then, there is the AMAZING hair do’s. She is amazing, my hair stayed in all day, even while limboing and dancing the night away. My bridesmaids looked stunning, and my mum, despite having short, curly (and impossible) hair looked beautiful.
I couldn’t recommend her enough.. I literally can not wait to have another event, just to have my hair done by her again!
Ellie, thank you, thank you so much! You were such a big part of my wedding day and the reasons it was just so perfect! ❤️ 
Sophie W (Bride) June 2019
Ellie, I haven’t had time to breathe, let alone write a thank you email, but I’m now sat with David having a cofffee and thought it’s a pretty good time!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, and another THANK YOU! My hair was everything I wanted, it was beautiful, and I had soooo many compliments on it!
It was so nice to have you there in the morning, such a calming presence
I hope you weren’t too tired that evening!
Hopefully see you again, when I next have a fancy event I need my hair doing for
Thank you again! Sophie (Bride) June 2019

Ellie is incredibly talented, and does such amazing, beautiful hairstyles (go look at her Instagram! 😍) I’m so glad I booked her for my wedding! Our hair was stunning, and she was so lovely and funny – it was an absolute pleasure to have her around. Stop browsing and book Ellie immediately. Jessie (Bride) April 2019

I booked Ellie for my wedding to do updos for myself and six bridesmaids – as we were a large group and it was a morning wedding she brought along a second hairstylist to help (Sarah). Both Ellie and Sarah were an absolute joy to have around on my wedding morning, they were so calming and friendly. My bridesmaids and I were all thrilled with our hairstyles – they were exactly what we wanted and stayed looking beautiful throughout the whole day. My six bridesmaids covered a range of hair types: short, long, curly, straight – Ellie can handle anything! I couldn’t have been happier with the whole experience with Ellie, and I would recommend her without hesitation. Thank you, Ellie!! Sarah (Bride) April 2019

Ellie did an amazing job with mine and my three bridesmaids hair. It stayed in place all day and everyone loved it. A super talented lovely lady who I would 100% recommend❤️ Thank you sooo much Claire (Bride) April 2019

I am so pleased that I chose Ellie to do mine and my bridesmaids’ hair on my wedding day. I cannot recommend her enough.
She is such a super talented and friendly person and it was a pleasure to have her with us whilst we all got ready. She helped make us all feel relaxed and as she was ahead of schedule, got stuck in helping with other things.
She created different styles for all my bridesmaids – all equally stunning! We didn’t know the exact size of my hairpiece until the morning of the wedding and I added a veil after our trial but it didn’t matter, Ellie was so flexible and created a beautiful updo which held firm all day. My hair has never looked so good!
We were in communication throughout the planning process and she would always take the time to answer any questions.
If you want beautiful wedding hair and a genuinely lovely stylist then Ellie is the one to book!
 Alice (Bride) November 2018

Ellie did the hair at my wedding recently for myself, six bridesmaids and two mums. Along with her lovely assistant, Jess, who helped to prep all the styles, they got it all done in a super chilled, fun and professional way and everyone looked so beautiful. Thank you so much x Charlotte (Bride) November 2018

Ellie did my hair and my mums hair for my wedding. I cannot recommend her enough. She is such a warm, friendly and lovely person and made us feel throughout the whole process (trial and on email) in such safe hands. It felt like I was getting ready with a best friend on my wedding day and she made our morning so fun and made us feel relaxed and at ease. She is an absolute pro at what she does and can create absolutely anything you want and make sure your hair looks exactly how you want it. I was extremely indecisive and kept changing my mind and so it was lovely to have someone like Ellie as my stylist because she was unbelievably patient, listened carefully to everything I wanted and was very happy to keep changing everything until we got it exactly how I wanted it. She is without any doubt extremely highly skilled and has a huge talent for what she does. She made me feel so beautiful on my wedding day and made my mum (who is very fussy with her hair!!) look and feel beautiful. I faffed around a lot researching and asking around trying to find the best person to do my hair on my wedding day. Trust me, look no further, this is the person you want doing your hair on your wedding day. She is the best. Beth (Bride) August 2018

Ellie did mine and my bridesmaid hair for my wedding. She ensured at my trial she recreated exactly what I had imagined and had explained to her, making me feel assured I was going to be perfectly happy on our big day! On the wedding day, my hair do was nicer than I could have ever imagined, it stayed perfectly secure and in place for the whole day. Thank you Ellie… highly recommend! Sarah (Bride) August 2018

Ellie I cannot thank you enough for myself, my mum and my bridesmaids hair. Our hair was just perfect. We felt so relaxed and you used your amazing creativity to create perfect styles. 57 pins later and my hair stayed in place all day without any worries. You explained things so fully and are so dedicated to what you do. Thank you so much again for what you did. Cannot recommend enough! Summer (Bride) August 2018

I’d like to thank Ellie so much for the amazing job she did on my hair do for my wedding on Tuesday! Not only did I feel so awesome with my hair but my bridesmaids looked so beautiful too and truly unique compared to lots of other bridal hair. Ellie was so professional and a lovely lady to have around on the morning of the wedding! Thanks Ellie, you’re hired for my next event in Devon! Kimberley (Bride) July 2018

Ellie is such an amazingly talented hairstylist and I could never be thankful enough to her for making me and my bridesmaids gorgeous on our wedding day! She was cooperative during the whole process and worked hard to put my vision into reality. Ellie is also professional, punctual, reliable, and understanding. Her positive bubbly attitude makes her a delight to work with during your special day too. Thanks again Ellie! Highly recommended! 1000000 stars for you! Clarissa (Bride) July 2018

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for your amazing work on my wedding morning. We were all so pleased with how you styled our hair and it was so lovely to have you there with us whilst we got ready. I can’t express how happy I am looking back on how the day went and how grateful I am for how you contributed to that by getting me/the girls off to a positive start! Really did have the best day of my life. Looking back at photos and our video, I’m so chuffed with my hair so really want you to know how appreciative I am. I also had so many lovely comments on how gorgeous it looked, as did the bridesmaids. You are such a warm, fun and kind person and I wish you all the best for the future. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you and will be passing on your details to friends! – Laura (Bride) June 2018

I must have been the luckiest bride in the world. I came across Ellie on Instagram when looking for a unique Devon hair stylist. I instantly felt like Ellie and I were life long friends at our hair trial. Having her there on the morning of the wedding was a steadying force, knowing that she would make us all look beautiful and make us smile and laugh in the process. Thank you Ellie, you were heaven sent xx – Emma (Bride) May 2018

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful work you did on our hair for my wedding day on 20 October 2017 in Sidmouth. I am so glad I found you, I cannot praise you enough for your creative skills, you were able to come up with four different styles for my bridesmaids and myself, without a trial. We were all so pleased with the final outcomes. I was so happy how you understood that I wished them to have their own style, you went above and beyond expectations. Your communication has been fabulous and I would book you again without hesitation and would highly recommend you to others. Thank you again for being part of my wedding and making us all look amazing! – Krissi (Bride) October 2017

Ellie is so passionate about hairdressing and she makes it seem effortless and fun. I had my wedding hair done and it was just the right mix of styled, yet natural. She was even able to do my bridesmaids hair to fit in with mine without detracting from it. Definitely got the seal of approval from my mum, who commented several times what a wonderful job Ellie had done with all of our hair – the mother of the bride always knows best 🙂 Thank you Ellie – Pamela (Bride) May 2017
