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.
The proud owner of The Toni Todd Hair & Makeup Boutique and holder of two fabulous Business Awards.
I am also a wife, a mum of two kiddies and two fur babies (Jerry & Ziggy).
I love all things pretty, sparkly and wedding-y.
As recent bride myself, almost 4 years ago now, but it feels very recent still...
I know and have experienced first-hand all of the emotions when planning a wedding.
Its a big day and we all have 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.
I will be with you 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 me and my work.
As your Makeup Artist you will need to feel 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 15+ years,
owned my own freelancing bridal business for just over 7 years and I opened up
The Boutique in December 2018!!!
I focus on, and specialise in 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 bridal services are also on-location, which means that I travel to you!
For Special occasions and events, you will be welcomed into
The Boutique for some VIP treatment.
As an artist, I love making women feel good about themselves. What is 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 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, many of whom still visit me regularly for hairdressing and occasion makeup.
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 in 2003 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 3 year Bachelor of Arts 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 from university in 2014 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.
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 7th year as a Vintage Hair and Makeup Artist for the International racing event at Goodwood Revival.
I can guarantee that you will feel in safe hands when booking me for your special occassion or event.
I am a very 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 15+ years of working within the industry.
