This is Me
This is Me
Thank you for dropping by, its so nice to meet you x
I'm Toni Todd, I am super friendly, bubbly and positive kind of person, a mum of two children and 3 fur babies. I love all things pretty, sparkly and wedding-y.
As recent bride myself, I know first-hand all of the emotions when planning a wedding & that feeling of wanting to have everything perfect and just so! Choosing the right hair and makeup artist for your big day can be a complete minefield, but I hope to help making your choice an easy and exciting one!
As your hair and makeup artist, I will be the first of your chosen suppliers to arrive on your big day, before any of the photographers, florists and guests arrive and I will spend the entire wedding morning with you and your bridal party, so it is important that you feel confident in my work but also relaxed and completely at ease in my presence. I always aim to always go the extra mile for my brides and their bridal parties and I can't wait to meet you!!
I have been active in the Hair and Beauty industry for 13+ years, I have now owned my own freelancing business for just over 5 years.
I focus on, and specialise on weddings, offering bespoke bridal hairstyling and airbrush wedding makeup, however , I do also offer services for any other special events you want to look your best for.
All my services are also on-location, which means that I travel to you!
As an artist, I love making women feel good about themselves. What’s unique about my approach is that I ask questions and listen first. I find this so important because my client’s personal vision, needs, and comfort are the utmost priority.
I love getting to know my brides, and enjoy hearing all about their wedding details. I truly appreciate the hard work & dedication it takes to plan such a special event. I also make it a focus to build & maintain relationships with both my new & past bridal clients.
My aesthetic style as an artist is soft, fresh, timeless & elegant.
I have a passion for, and focus on creating polished bridal looks. I really love to enhance your natural beauty, and I like for my brides to look & feel like the best version of themselves.
My evolving career
My evolving career
I first got my start in the hair and beauty world at age 18, when I began training as a hairdresser at College, it was there that my passion for fashion, art and creativity began.
By the time I was 20, I was working in salons running my own very busy clientèle,
I completed my advanced hairdressing and chose to teach the subject as a profession, so I trained as a NVQ assessor teaching hairdressing to newbie stylists.
After a year working as a teacher and still hairdressing in the salon, I knew I wanted to take my career to the next step and enrolled myself on to a 2 year Foundation Degree in Hair and Make-up for TV, Film & Theatre, which I passed with distinction.
During this time I set up 'Toni Todd Hair and Make-up' and made the decision to freelance along side university. I graduated with a BA (Hons) Degree in Hair, Wigs and Make-up for TV, Film and Theatre and business has gone from strength to strength.
To stay current and keep my skills fresh and up to date, I constantly improve my hair and make-up techniques, I do this by enrolling myself on advanced make-up artist and hairstyling certification workshops. I believe you never stop learning & growing your craft.
I absolutely love running my own business, I run all of my own social media and have I also designed this website and portfolio myself from scratch.
During my life, through my past employment I have learnt valuable first-hand experience on how to run a business, market my services, as well as interact with clients. Customer service & creating a memorable experience is a top priority for me.
Currently, I'm a freelance Hair and Make-up artist living & working in Littlehampton, in the the West Sussex area.
I'm very fortunate to have other opportunities to showcase my work, by collaborating with other wedding suppliers on photoshoots and running creative events. I have been very lucky to be in my 5th year as a Vintage Hair and Makeup Artist for the International racing event at Goodwood Revival , I have spent the last 3 years working back stage with the Goodwood Actors Guild creating the hair and makeup for the Revival characters.
I can guarantee that you will feel in safe hands when booking me for your special occassion or event.
I am very a ambitious, highly skilled and qualified hair designer and makeup artist.
I am dedicated to building and expanding my knowledge and techniques to perfect my craft,
during this journey I have gained extensive knowledge and expertise in my field
over the last 13 years of working within the industry.
