In 2017 Olga set up Barnet & Boatrace after collaborating on many freelance wedding assignments with her long standing hairdresser and friend of 20 years, Tandee. As the business grows, Olga is consistently building relationships with other hair stylists and makeup artists and adding them to her friendly and reliable team.

head Makeup artist
Olga first dipped her toe in the cosmetics world in 2004 after attending one of Richard Branson's skincare and cosmetics parties and decided to join the company and train up as a Makeup and Skincare consultant.
Her passion for makeup meant she quickly progressed through the ranks of the company being promoted to Group Sales Manager winning 5 star all expenses paid trips to places such as Hong Kong and Reims in France.
Throughout her networking she would always be asked if she could be booked to do wedding makeup so she undertook advanced training within the company and found her niche for making brides feel confident in their skin with the power of makeup.
Olga loves the BeautyLab and Mii Cosmetics range and has most recently undertaken training at the Susan Gerrard Academy to enhance her skills and ensure she is always keeping her product and application knowledge up to date.
senior HAIR STYLIST
Tandee has always had a creative flair for hair (and fashion!) ever since first leaving school in 1995 and starting a local apprenticeship at Joanne's Creative Hair Design.
From that moment she hasn't looked back and worked as a hairdresser and stylist in various local hair salons in Bournemouth, Ringwood and Westbourne expanding her knowledge by attending workshops at TONI&GUY and Wella in London.
After having her daughter in 2008 she focussed her skills on her main passion which is wedding hair.
Tandee's top tip for wedding hair: "Avoid a haircut immediately before the wedding day if you've recently had a trial as this can change the end look, and remember to fully wash out your hair conditioner/mask, slimey hair on the wedding morning is no no!"
