Annette’s service, colouring & styling is second to none
Finding a hairdresser you trust with your precious locks can be a bit of a nightmare, especially when your business is Wedding Planning and your appearance is paramount. I was introduced to Annette via a mutual friend, after experiencing a mixed service with my long term salon of over 10 years. I visit Annette as much as possible because which girl doesn’t like to treat herself as often as she can. The atmosphere in the salon is relaxed, Annette’s service, colouring & styling is second to none. I usually walk in feeling frazzled but leave feeling utterly fabulous!
She takes her time to talk to you about your hair and what you would like to achieve, her advice is always friendly and professional. I have no hesitation in referring clients & friends to Annette because whether you are looking for glam and voluminous or sleek & chic, Annette ensures your hair looks amazing.
Annette is so creative and knew exactly what I was looking for
It took me a while to find someone to do my bridesmaids and my hair and makeup for my wedding, were we lucky when I found Annette. Sharon my chief bridesmaid and I went to see Annette at her salon first, she made us feel very welcome, had some great ideas. The next time I met Annette was for a hair trial, to decide how to have my hair. When Sharon and I went for our hair and makeup trials I felt amazing afterwards, Annette is so creative and knew exactly what I was looking for. The day of the wedding was so much fun, Annette was there at 9am and was able to join us at the ceremony as well. I enjoyed every minute, both bridesmaids looked stunning, I felt like a million dollars, everyone was amazed at how I looked, Ian, my husband even went up to Annette and said how beautiful I looked and thanked her as he could see how happy I was. Anyone who has the opportunity to have Annette is very lucky as she is an amazing and talented lady.

My daugther had three trials with hair and make up and to be honest none of them were any good then a friend told me about Annette at elegance and she wasn’t wrong at all, she did my daughters hair fantastically and her make up was stunning, not only did she do a good job of both she made us feel so welcome, gave us lots of advice.

Annette is one of those people who will just make you feel like the sun is shining out of you!
Annette is one of those people who will just make you feel like the sun is shining out of you! She will bring out your inner beauty and make you feel so very special. She is wonderful! I shall always have amazing memories of our hair and makeup in the summerhouse at the end of our family garden. Thank you Annette for being a part of our special day.
I absolutely loved the results of the trial. Annette makes the whole experience so easy
I’ve only had my bridal hair trial as I’m not due to be married until October but I absolutely loved the results of the trial. Annette makes the whole experience so easy and doesn’t hesitate to come right back to me about any of my questions or new suggestions. I feel very safe in her hands and know she will make my hair look amazing xx
I just wanted to thank you for my colour today you just seemed to know exactly what it was I was looking for
I just wanted to thank you for my colour today you just seemed to know exactly what it was I was looking for. The salon is inviting, relaxing (which us ladies need!) and your knowledge of hair and it’s structure is just brilliant. Glad I chose to come to you, having watched you do bridal hair today makes think I should get married again!
Will be recommending you to friends, I feel great.
I can't thank Annette enough for the wedding hair consultation, I was amazed at the transformation
I can’t thank Annette enough for the wedding hair consultation, I was amazed at the transformation. What Annette did with my hair was amazing and I can’t wait for my big day with hair looking great (and no hair pieces). Also the recommendation of the redken shampoos, which have helped the condition and texture of my hair by far.
So a big thank you for a very easy comfortable consultation in a lovely salon setting.

Annette brings a wealth of talent to every photographic shoot when it comes to the Hair & Make-Up that we require to make the shoot a sensation
As a publisher of a Wedding magazine in the UK we have been honoured with teaming up with Annette Bradford owner of Elegance Bridal Coiffure based in Hampshire.
We have known Annette for a number of years and she has always helped out on our Photographic shoots for the magazine.
Annette brings a wealth of talent to every photographic shoot when it comes to the Hair & Make-Up that we require to make the shoot a sensation.
Her many years of knowledge flair and talent are proof that Annette loves the job she does and it clearly shows in what she is able to do on the day, she works well with every one on the team as her friendly and patient manner is what makes Annette one of the key members of our team and she is a joy to work with, she never gets stressed out and is always on standby to suggest the best ideas and solutions to our Hair & Make-up needs. Utilizing the latest range of products available to her Annette is able to keep the photographic shoots fresh and current for our bridal readers, many of who have gone on to use Annette for their wedding hair arrangements just on the strength of what they have seen alone… We think Annette is fabulous and is one of the reasons we would highly recommend her to anyone that wants stunning Hair & Make-Up results.
Annette is clearly so talented at hair and make up, her ideas are creative and she is a perfectionist
The first time I heard of Annette was from a friend at work Lyndsey. Lyndsey is a great person and put so much attention and research into her wedding it was like a military operation, resulting in a fairy-tale experience. When my niece got married several months later and I heard she had booked Annette I was so pleased as I knew she had booked the absolute best.
I met Annette the day of my nieces wedding. Annette was amazing. Annette is clearly so talented at hair and make up, her ideas are creative and she is a perfectionist. My niece looked stunning on her wedding day and I know that this was down to Annette’s talents (and her natural beauty too!). On the day Annette also did the hair for my nieces and great nieces, one of whom was really not keen to have her hair done. Despite several attempts by her Mummy and other family members including trying to pretend that Father Christmas was on the phone it was only Annette that could persuade her to have her hair done. Annette had only met her that day and won her over instantly. My niece is also very quiet but she too was able to feel so relaxed with Annette and although there was a room full of nerves, Annette helped everyone to be relaxed and have a fun time.
I also had my hair and make up done on the day by Annette and she made me feel a million dollars. Annette seems to only need to know to you for a few minutes and she has a perfect understanding of you and your sense of style. I was so pleased with how I looked and everyone commented on my fabulous hair.
As soon as I met Annette I knew that I wanted her for my own wedding and was very pleased that she was free!
I have had my trial with Annette at her shop. I felt that her shop it itself was part of the experience. It is not your average salon, it is beautiful and chic and the moment you step inside you feel welcome and like a princess.
Annette spent a great deal of time on my hair and makeup and was full of great ideas and lots of patience, I am not the most decisive person in the world! I am also very aware of my size ( a lot larger than I would like to be!) which has had an impact on how I see myself. I feel very under confident and am really nervous about how I will look on my wedding day. I can honestly say that by the time I left Annette’s I felt fantastic!
I felt very comfortable talking to Annette and sharing that I was gay. In all the wedding planning and preparation we have had sadly my partner and I have not had the best experience from some professionals and we have had occasions where we have been made to feel uncomfortable. There is nothing in Annette’s presentation that has made us feel like this, completely the opposite she has made us completely comfortable.
I feel that it is clear that Annette would be accepting and professional in any circumstances.
My partner does not wear makeup and has struggled to feel comfortable in preparing for our wedding knowing what to wear etc. When she returned from seeing Annette from her trial though the her confidence had soared. She had gone to the appointment dreading it and came back feeling great and felt she had been made to feel special and comfortable.
In getting to know Annette I have noticed how on Facebook she actively shares information about wedding fairs and community events. It is clear that she is not only passionate about what she does but is also a strong advocate for the wedding profession. It is very interesting to read her posts and I have had the opportunity to pass this information on to others who are planning their wedding.
I am writing this 9 days before my own wedding and it is fair to say I am a stressed bride to be, however I was determined to find the time to write this as I believe Annette is worth this time. I have been so impressed by her as a person and a professional. I think that she absolutely deserves to continue to be recognised for her excellence.
I am also confident thatI can write this before she has done my own wedding hair and make up as I have 100 % faith in the fact that this will be amazing too.
In summary I cannot recommend or thank Annette enough. I feel that her talents, personality, respect for difference, ability to make everyone of all ages and personalities feel comfortable, her commitment to her profession and community mean that Annette provides something that is above and beyond others.
