We know that your Hair and Makeup journey is important and that you want to make sure you pick the right people to enjoy the ride with. Therefore we have listed our top 3 qualities to help you understand a bit more about us and how we work together as a team to ensure your experience with us is an enjoyable one.
Number 1: Good Communication Skills
Every day is an admin day with Barnet and Boatrace. We understand that you don’t want to wait until a Monday for us to answer your email or text message so we endeavour to return all of your calls and messages within 24 - 48 hours.
Olga deals with all of the incoming communication and oversees each job that comes in (even if she's not present at the job herself) to make sure that you know what to expect each step of the way. From initial enquiry to before and after your trial as well as just before your wedding day.
All makeup consultants and hair stylists in the Barnet and Boatrace team are briefed before joining the team that a quick response is needed and is essential to keeping a Barnet and Boatrace bride happy.
Number 2: Good Organisation
We have one place for every booking kept securely online so that all of your important information is stored safely together.
It’s here in the background that the hairstylist and makeup artist and assistants liaise with each other to ensure that everyone is aware of all booking details such as timings for the day, pictures and notes from the trial as well as any other important info. This is also a handy tool for us in case anyone is unexpectedly taken ill - it makes it a lot easier for another member of the team to step in at short notice.
Number 3: Quirky by Name, Quirky by Nature!
So if you're not a Londoner you might not be so familiar with the company name. So you're not left in the dark, "Barnet" is cockney rhyming slang for barnet fair which is hair... and "Boatrace" is cockney rhyming slang for face!
Although we're not from the East End we do have a great mix of 10 makeup artists and hair stylists at different ages, personalities as well as career stages and levels of expertise. We work well together always encouraging one another and sharing new products that we’ve discovered, styling ideas, and tips and other wedding related stuff.
Olga always endeavours to pair the right makeup artist with hair stylist to work on each wedding together to create a strong wedding beauty and styling team. Every now and then we grab a coffee (or wine) together so that we get to know each other on a more personal level too which always helps us bond as a team and on our wedding jobs too.
