Meet Our Wedding Hair and Makeup Artists
I’m Claire, one half of the directors of FV and lead make up artist. Bridal make up is my biggest passion and really is an honour to do.
I started out my career as a self taught make up artist working on mostly occasion make up. In 2010, all of that changed. I was asked by my friend to do her wedding make up and loved it so much I decided to specialise in this area.
After attending the renowned Sara Hill Make Up Academy in Glasgow, I met the other half of Future Vintage, Lisa.
We launched FV to create a unique bridal hair and make up experience with you at the heart of what we do. Whether you are a classic Vintage girl, Natural, Boho or a modern Bombshell bride I will tailor your make up look to exactly what you envisage.
My love of variety also lends itself to bridal parties where there are a lot of different requests and our team set up allows us to cater to big groups.
One thing that doesn’t change though, whatever the make up look, is our dedication to your customer experience.
We will be there for you from the first email right through to your wedding morning and beyond. Whether it be helping you into your dress, pouring your champagne, or just holding your hand. I understand that being a bridal make up artist isn’t just about just great make up, it’s my job to help you feel like a Queen.
I’m Lisa, the other half of FV, Director/Owner of Chakirs salon and lead hair and make up artist.
I‘ve been a part of the Hair industry for over 20 years now have been a Director of my own salon (Chakirs) for over 12 years.
More recently I’ve found a passion for Bridal Make up and love nothing more than creating a bespoke hair and make up look for our Brides.
I trained in make up at the amazing Sara Hill make up academy, Glasgow, where I met Claire and FV was born.
As you’ll read in Claire’s bio, we want to give you the most amazing Bridal experience. As we have my salon as a base, we can offer you something different.
You can choose whether we come to you on the day as a totally freelance team or use the private make up lounge with no extra fuss.
I love giving our Brides this freedom, and freedom is a theme here. FV is the perfect mix of the old and new and my work reflects this. One day I will work with a bride to create a gorgeous undone boho style and the next day it could be a glamorous, structured vintage look.
Nothing is off limits. With your imagination and my experience, let’s see what we can create together.
Hi my names Jill, I've been working with Chakirs for the last 17 years and love being on the Future Vintage team too!
I've grew up within Chakirs and having an amazing mentor like Lisa has helped me be where iam today. Not only has she taught me how to work to my best ability over the years in hair, herself and Claire have taught me and and guided me a lot during my make up journey!
I love using my skills on a wedding morning as there is nothing quite like seeing a Bride looking in the mirror as her hair is transformed.
Being able to do make up alongside hair is just amazing! I am doing some extra training this year to perfect my make up skills.
Getting you glam you up for a night out or a wedding is a real feel good factor as I love seeing my clients leaving my chair happy and looking great!
My name is Rachel I have been working in hair salons for 11 years! I absolutely love hair ups, it’s my favourite thing to do! I love how creative you can be.
Making sure your hair up stays in all day is one of my main goals.. so be prepared to remove a million pins.. trust me it’s worth it - but don’t worry you won’t even feel they are in there... what can I say... it’s a talent! No one can ever believe how many pins were in there!
From messy buns, to classic up do’s, curls, braids and vintage styles! I love them all!
