Hannah Monk Hair & Makeup - based in Sidcup, Bexley, Greater London
Hey im Hannah, a freelance wedding hair & make up artist based in South East London and Kent with clients throughout London, Kent, Essex and Surrey area. Also available to work throughout the UK and internationally.
I specialise in modern bridal hair styling and natural looking wedding makeup / special occasions & makeup lessons (one to one and group).
My views for makeup on myself and my clients is that makeup should enhance and not 'wear' me. Skin should be seen to be glowing, fresh and polished, not hidden under a mask of makeup and most importantly, you need to feel confident and still look like yourself.
I am mostly known for my natural and flawless makeup techniques which do not feel heavy on the skin - all my clients comment how light the make up feels, no instagram OTT makeup here.
My style can be described as CASUAL GLAM.
Whether thats relaxed beach waves, boho braids and twists, think loose waves with a flower crown/wax hair comb in a beautiful country house (or garden).
Or trendy and modern hair that you might see in a magazine or at a film premiere. Not every wedding hair style has to found under 'bridal hair' in Pinterest. Have a look at some famous actresses hair styles for example. A much softer version of the Hollywood wave with a simple hair slide or a crown is right on trend at the moment. Contact me for some ideas or take a look at my bridal styled shoots for lots of examples.
I have a soft spot for ponytails, a bridal pony is IN at the moment, whether its a sleek low pony (red carpet inspired) or a much more relaxed loose waves pony (country vibes), get in touch and we can discuss.
Other areas of work include:
Advertising, commercial, beauty shoots, catwalk, lookbooks and TV light entertainment (see my cv below for a glimpse of some client names and brands).
When i am not at work applying makeup / creating waves in someone's hair, i am usually with my scatty but gorgeous boxer dog, drinking tea (or cocktails - pina colada is my fav), watching a good tv series (trust me ive watched alot of them) or singing to 90's/early 00's pop music.
I am a regular volunteer for the wonderful charity - Look Good Feel Better. They run skin care and makeup masterclass workshops around the UK, for anyone undergoing treatment for any form of cancer.
Its a rewarding few hours spent with some inspiring people.

In September 2017, me and my slobberchops boxer dog did the Battersea Dogs Home muddy dog run, along with my brother and his dog.
It was SO MUCH FUN!!!
I had a stitch for most of it, leggings felt super heavy like they was about to fall down, but we kept on going (or rather i was pulled along by my dog). We had one of the best days, humans covered in more mud than the dogs and raised a fantastic £500 for Battersea Dogs Home.
