Hi there!
I’m Nahid, a passionate hair and makeup artist, based in Byron Bay.

Highlights of my career:

Since embarking on this colourful journey in 2005 at the Art Academy in Germany, my career has been a whirlwind of creativity, learning, and growth.

My work has taken me across the globe, from glittering TV and music sets to the intimate, joyful moments of wedding celebrations. What I love most is the diversity of my job; it’s as varied and vibrant as my makeup palette.

Wedding Makeup


It has been a joy to be part of the Byron Bay Wedding industry and work as a bridal makeup artist in Tweed Heads, and the Gold Coast.

If you like the natural, dewy Byron Bay Signature Bridal Style or a flawless, elegant classic look, I am happy to go with any makeup style you love.

One of my goals is to enhance your natural beauty with love for detail and to boost your self-confidence for your big day. You want to be the best version of yourself and feel good in your skin. Important for me is to create a calm and relaxed atmosphere while you have a moment in my chair.

A trial session can be the perfect playground for ideas, helping you visualize and refine your bridal look prior to your wedding day, blending the colour of your dress and bouquet, into a harmonious whole.

Let´s start the wedding journey. A trial can be held in the relaxing atmosphere of your home or the salon.

Wedding Hair

Your bridal hair styling for your big day matters to me. I am highly skilled in different hair techniques for any hair type to achieve your desired look. I use a selection of high-end, cruelty-free, and vegan hair products.

If you are uncertain, about having a romantic or classic hairstyle for your special day, we´ll brainstorm and choose what suits you best. It can be helpful to look at some wedding hair inspirations, but I highly recommend looking at photos with similar hair colours and characteristics.

Natural Makeup

Natural and flawless wedding makeup can have very different meanings to women. Great communication is essential in creating your desired beauty look.

Working with many brides over the past 17 years has helped me to get an intuition for someone’s style.  It is also about finding the right balance between enhancing natural beauty and applying effective makeup techniques you feel comfortable with.

A range of subtle and earthy tones can enhance your features and certainly set the trend in Byron Bay. Flawless and radiant-looking skin is the goal of every bridal makeup artist.

My beauty makeup includes expertly applied Modelrock Lashes, which enhance your eyes even more in a natural-looking way. You will look amazing not just in your wedding photos.

Bridal Parties

Welcoming bridal parties of all sizes, I am excited to share your joy and help everyone feel stunning.

I work with a selected team of expert makeup artists and hairdressers to achieve each bride’s unique style for her special day.

Is a Wedding Trial necessary with Makeup Artist Byron Bay?

A wedding trial is a great idea as you get to know your makeup artist in person and try different wedding hairstyles and makeup looks. We can start with subtle wedding makeup and intensify to a more glamorous version.

It really depends on the bride and your makeup artist. If you know the exact look you would like, it is not absolutely necessary. I have a lot of happy brides as clients coming to me from interstate without a makeup and hair trial.
