In 2017 Olga set up Barnet & Boatrace after collaborating on many wedding assignments with her long standing hairdresser (20 years!) and friend Tandee. As the business grows, Olga is building relationships with other hair stylists and makeup artists and adding them to her friendly and reliable team.
Olga started her makeup career in 2014 after attending one of Sir Richard Branson's cosmetics parties. She joined the company as a makeup and skincare consultant working freelance doing make-overs and skincare presentations. She progressed onto becoming a Group Sales Manager winning 5 star all expenses paid trips to Hong Kong and Reims. Throughout her networking she was often asked if she specialised in wedding makeup. She soon found her niche and built up a successful bridal portfolio and hasn't looked back since.
Tandee has always had a creative flair for hair ever since first leaving school in 1995 and starting a local apprenticeship at Joanne's Creative Hair Design. From then on 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.
Olivia went into Makeup and Beauty nearly 10 years ago after completing her degree in fashion design. Olivia has worked in beauty salons and as a self employed therapist but after having her son in 2016 she decided to push her makeup business and hasn't looked back! Bridal makeup is her passion.
