Thank you again, Jackie."  Jackie Lonsdale.

"For the past 2 months I've been lucky to spend 6 mornings getting my hair & makeup done at The HMU Studio with Tash for our TV show The Human Element.  I cannot recommend Tash and her team highly enough, they're not only brilliant at making you look and feel fabulous, your time spent in the chair feels like spending time with one of your best friends, you'll laugh, you'll cry and learn some cool stuff too." Nicole Morris CEO Human Tribe 

"Just sending a 'Thank you' for the great hair and makeup last weekend.  My husband was especially happy!  I was unsure that my hair would stay in place as the wedding was on the beach and it was very windy but you were absolutely right, it did!  It even looked good the next day, for my journey back to England, with the grips removed.  If I should be so lucky to return to Collaroy I will definitely be back to see you.  Many thanks, Brenda."
