After the third makeup artists I'd hired flaked out on me 1 week before my wedding, I was desperate. I called Jennifer at Mink Makeup & Hair hoping that she had an opening. She was kind and professional over the phone and showed sympathy for my situation. She fit me into her busy wedding season schedule on short notice and made me look and feel beautiful for my wedding day without having the time to do a trial run. She was fun and friendly and passionate about her business. I am so thankful I found her!

Two stylists from the Mink Makeup and Hair Team, Rae and Gemma, styled my bridal party's hair for my wedding. They were incredible! They both created styles that were even more beautiful than the pictures we showed them. They were kind, calm, and professional. Gemma even stayed late to be there to put my tiara in (it went missing and had to be rushed from home, an hour away!)
My emails to Mink prior to the wedding were replied to promptly by either Mink or the personal stylist.
And Melanie, the owner of Mink, contacted me after the wedding to check on my experience and to send me a thank you. But it's me who should be thanking them! :)
Everything went beautifully. Thank you for everything.

Let me tell you that for my daughters wedding being the mother of the bride, I never in my life felt so beautiful. The hairstyle that Melanie did was exactly what I wanted, my makeup from Guy was over the moon. Melanie and her team came to our home, did all the bridesmaids which were done to perfection, then did my daughter, the bride. She was glowing, her hair and makeup were beautiful. Even if you are not going to a wedding and want to look beautiful, Mink is the people you want. I will use them again just because. Thank you all so much. Janice

I cannot say enough good things about Melanie and her group. They were absolutly fantastic and were one of the best parts of my wedding. Melanie was my saving grace at my wedding, she stepped up when I had an unrelated problem and helped me through every part. I would have paid double ( if I coukd afford it lol) They were unbelievable and you will never ever find a better hair and makeup team.

I had a wonderful experience with Mink Makeup and Hair. Melanie is a fabulous gal with a lovely smile who can make you feel at ease. We met ahead of time to check out what style would work for me. I'm not a person who wears much make up, actually I don't wear any. So it was wonderful to have Melanie help me find a colour palette that worked for me and didn't make me feel over done. I had an idea of what I wanted my hair to look like, but it didn't really look that great on me. She crafted a style that worked well and I loved it.

On the day of the wedding she was there with her assistant and I felt at ease. It was a very relaxing experience. She and her assistant did a wonderful job and my bridesmaids and I felt very pampered. Melanie is professional and full of positive energy. I would and will recommend Mink Makeup and Hair to any bride who wants a professional team that will help to make their day special. Mink Makeup and Hair is it!!!

I would def recommend Mink Make-up to any of my future bride friends.

She is patient with stressed out brides and tries a lot of different looks so by the end of your consultation you are 100% sure of your hair and make up choice. She travelled all the way up to the sunshine coast for my wedding which was so wonderful.

Melanie from Mink Makeup is a really wonderful person to work with! She did my hair and make-up for my wedding and with her assistant, Melanie did the hair and make-up for all my 4 bridesmaids, my mom and (now) my mother-in-law and they all looked great!

She was very professional and incredibly helpful during my bridal consult. We tried curling my hair in different ways and found the perfect make-up for the wedding. Melanie is meticulous and made sure that everything we decided on during the consult was done on my wedding day!

Melanie from Mink Makeup is a really wonderful person to work with! She did my hair and make-up for my wedding and with her assistant, Melanie did the hair and make-up for all my 4 bridesmaids, my mom and (now) my mother-in-law and they all looked great!

She was very professional and incredibly helpful during my bridal consult. We tried curling my hair in different ways and found the perfect make-up for the wedding. Melanie is meticulous and made sure that everything we decided on during the consult was done on my wedding day!

Overall, great service and a wonderful result! Thank you Melanie! Read less

I emailed Melanie just days before my wedding in a panic because my make up artist from MAC backed out on me the last minute. Melanie, got back to me right away with a fabulous price for me and my bridesmaids to get our makeup done. The makeup artist Jen came to us at the salon to do our makeup and she did an amazing job! If you want your makeup done by a professional for a good price which looks beautiful, email Melanie and her and her team will take great care of you!

Choosing a person to entrust with your wedding day look is a big decision. I am very happy that I chose Mink Makeup and Hair for my September 2013 wedding. Senior Stylist Jennifer Ruth and the rest of the staff that I came into contact with were professional, friendly, and talented. I received so many compliments about my hair and makeup on the day of my wedding! Jennifer made me feel and look beautiful. It was important to me to look glamorous but natural. I didn't want to look like I was wearing too much makeup or look like a completely different person. In the end, Jennifer created the exact look that I was aiming for. I don't remember the names of the two ladies that worked on my bridesmaids' hair and makeup, however, they also did excellent work. I will be recommending Mink to all my engaged friends!

Melanie was such a pleasure to work with. She's incredibly easy-going, flexible and cheerful as she helps you find the best look for your special day. Being mobile is a plus as it made it very convenient for my bridal party and myself. The make-up and hair lasted for the entire day (which was perfect for photos!) and was completely catered to what I preferred. Thank you Mink for being part of our special day :)

I had my wedding in July 2011, and booked makeup and hair for myself, 5 bridesmaids and a groomswoman. Melanie is great to deal with - she's nice, easygoing, loves a laugh - which is great since she's the first person you deal with on a stressful morning. She and her team are also professional and punctual, which is a big bonus when I hire vendors. She was responsive to what myself and my bridesmaids wanted in their look, but also offered plenty of suggestions where needed. Melanie is able to create a great look even with stubborn hair - mine NEVER wants to curl - but whatever it was that she did, it stayed in place perfectly (like not a hair out of place) all night long even while jumping on the dance floor.

Melanie was wonderful to work with! She really understood my vision and executed exactly the look I was going for in one try. I found Melanie to be very personable and fun, professional, and accommodating. She and her assistant Ashley arrived early the morning of and finished early too! I would definitely recommend Mink Makeup and Hair to brides looking for a great (and beautiful!) experience on their special day.

I highly recommend hiring Melanie to be a part of your big day! The first thing that struck me about her was her professionalism, which was apparent from my first inquiry about her services. Beyond that, Melanie is a very sincere, lovely person and she proved to be a wonderfully calming person to have around on the wedding morning! She's incredibly talented with hair and make up to boot! She did a jaw-dropping job on mine! I will be recommending her to all my friends with upcoming weddings.

I had a great experience with Mink. My stylist Tracey Le was so talented and such a nice person to spend time with. She really listened to what I wanted and did exactly that, while making suggestions for ways to make it even better. I would highly recommend her. The only reason I didn't give them all 5 stars is because the Mink team (not Tracey) seemed a bit disorganized at times, as I got a few phone calls after I had already booked trying to convince me to book, or emails asking if I was ready to commit after I had already done so. It seemed like my booking just wasn't communicated properly to the whole team. This was probably a one time error. Otherwise, everything was great!

I loved my Mink hair/make-up artist! She did a great job on both my hair and makeup. I loved that I had a trial for both, to make sure my artist knew what I wanted and we could adjust it for the wedding day if there wasn't something I liked. However, on the wedding day it did take longer to get my hair and makeup done, which resulted in not being able to do some things I had hoped to and had to rush to get to the church on time. Although I loved the look, I wish it would've taken the amount of time that they promised it would. Also, for the high cost, I could've just had my hair done at my hair dresser and done my makeup myself, but I really did love my Mink artist after my trial and wanted her there on my day.

Mink Makeup & Hair responded with the following comments:

I'm sorry to hear that you were unable to have the whole amount of time you expected to have your pictures done before the wedding. We strive as best we can to make sure we keep to our contracted timeframe because we know how important that is on a wedding day. I'm so glad that you had an enjoyable time with your stylist, because we wanted to create a great experience for you, but am disappointed that your services took longer than we planned and have reminded my team about the importance of keeping to our contracted timeframe no matter what. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience. Wishing you all the happiness in your new married life!

I used Mink Makeup for my wedding in January 2013. They did make-up and hair for me (bride) and my bridesmaid and make-up for my Mom. I found Mink Makeup to be fairly responsive to all my email and phone inquiries. I felt their pricing was competitive. My trial did not go as expected as I had thought that two stylists would show up, but only one did. This made us feel a bit rushed as I had a limited time frame to complete our trials. This is why I only gave them 4 stars for Quality of Service. But more importantly, on my wedding day the two stylists showed up on time and did a great job on all of our hair and make-up. I was very happy with the air-brushing application of my make up. The stylists always asked us how we liked what they were doing with our hair and makeup and made any requested adjustments. I felt they did a great job on listening to our modifications and did not make us look overly 'made up' for our makeup. I would highly recommend using them.

I had Mink Makeup do my Hair and Makeup for myself and 4 other members of my family / bridal party. First of all, I wasn't impressed with their booking system - you always spoke to different people, and even though it was online for you to see, they kept making mistakes and I had to get it corrected several times, it became rather frustrating. Otherwise, they did a good job on my wedding makeup, but I wasn't happy with my hair, I felt like my stylist wasn't very creative, and she seemed to forget about a lot of the things we talked about during the trial. I ended up not really liking my hair, especially when I saw photos later that showed more of the back. They brought 2 other stylist for everyone else and did very simple curls - I had wanted fingerwave vintage type hair done and they said they didn't have time. We had booked them for 5 hours. So for those reasons, I have to give them just an average rating - especially with how much it ended up costing.

My first consultation turned out to be a disaster. I was there for about 4 hours wasted my whole morning all but to look like a drag queen. I was furious and emotional so I called the owner who was quite accommodating and returned my deposit. I had also booked them for bridesmaids so they promised to send anyone BUT the girl who did my consult. On my wedding day one of the girls was fabulous, the other was late had a bad attitude. Overall I would not recommend them as they seem to be very amateur for the amount of money you pay for their services.
