Once upon a time ... A girl called Nicola (a milk, no sugar type of girl) wanted to see what would happen if she mixed her lifes passions together... Tea, hair styling and a love of the past 'Tea and Trim' was the result; a friendly company based in the heart of Sussex, with a professional sussex based hair and makeup team offering luxury hair and makeup styling for weddings, and special occasions.


Our hen parties and events are a much loved part of Tea and Trim, we love to host and have been doing so for 6 years. Whatever the occasion we work to make sure the experience is unforgettable and really special for everyone. (View event feedback here). From makeovers parties, pop up photoshoots to quirky tea fuelled gatherings.


We are thrilled to have received so many thanks you's from past clients on this tea filled journey and proud to be featured in many magazines, websites and blogs to include magazine Vogue, Wedding, Red, Your Sussex Wedding and Etc and online blogs from Festival Brides to Whimiscal Wonderland Weddings and the much loved Rock and Roll bride.


Love & Tea,

" A massive thank you to your team for an incredible job. We couldn't be happier and I am so so grateful! Your team is so talented I will be telling everyone who will listen! You helped make our wedding day as amazing as it was."

(Tanya Memhet, Haywards Heath July 2015)

"All the girls felt very pampered and generally spoilt and I have to say we were very sad when the experience was over! I would recommend Tea and Trim without hesitation to anyone who wants to organise a hen-do, or any other event, which is a bit different and very special.  We had a wonderful time. We loved the whole experience!"

Nicola, Thank you for doing my wedding hair so beautifully, I absolutley loved it. It was lovely hanging out with you on my wedding morning, you have such a wonderful calming presence, I think I would have been a total wreck if it wasn't for you. Again, Thank you for everything.
