"I wouldn’t change any of it for the world"

Dawn had always done my hair and I will not go anywhere else, so it only felt right that dawn did the hair on my big day.

Dawn really listened and took in everything about the wedding and the theme, it was 1950’s so when it came to the trial we had fun recreating that eras style but with a sophisticated twist. I was absolutely thrilled with the final look and knew that with dawn there on the morning of my wedding I would feel a million dollars.

Dawn did my bridesmaids hair plus my mums and my sisters. They all had a 1950’s twist and all looked fantastic. It was an early start but dawn made the morning flow smoothly and made me feel so relaxed and confident. Looking back now I wouldn’t change any of it for the world.

I always recommend as she is the best I know so why would you want to go anywhere else?

Thank you for everything dawn.x

"I would highly recommend Rapture"

Dawn did my wedding hair and my bridesmaids. I’m always more comfortable with my hair down so had a trial to see about having my hair up. My hair looked perfect and up!!

The bridesmaids hair was put up on the day no trials and looked exactly how I’d asked. The morning was relaxed Dawn stayed until we left.

If your looking for someone to do your wedding hair at a great price I would highly recommend Rapture you won’t be disappointed. Thank you so much x

"She does hair effortlessly"

I was lucky enough to have Dawn do mine and my bridesmaids hair for my wedding. On the initial trial I was nervous because I have curly hair and wanted to keep it natural, while still looking glamourous, which can be difficult to achieve.

Dawn did a simple but gorgeous updo straight away!!!! It was perfect and just what I was looking for. She seemed to know exactly what would work for me and was so friendly that I was excited to have her spend the morning with us on the big day! When the day arrived, she did all of the bridesmaids, without a trial and they looked stunning! She does hair effortlessly.

My hair stayed put all day and everyone complimented me on how beautiful it looked. I would not recommend anyone else to do your hair on your wedding day. She fits right in to the family!!

"I cannot recommend Rapture enough!!"

Choosing a stylist to do my wedding hair was the easiest decision to make and it was defiantly the right one. Dawn and her team are always up for a creative hair challenge and they did me and my bridal party proud! I cannot recommend Rapture enough!! The girls are always lovely and welcoming! They give amazing advice to make sure you get the best look possible!

"If this is the trial, how amazing will it be on the day"

Dawn was fantastic from the moment I asked her to do my wedding hair, I immediately knew I made the right decision. I had a wedding trial where we were able to discuss what exactly I was after and within minutes Dawn had recreated the style , I remember thinking “if this is the trial, how amazing will it be on the day”, I knew then it was exactly what I was after. Having Dawn around on the morning of the wedding was great, she styled my hair, my mums and 4 bridesmaids, the quality of style was evident from the first to the last person. Dawn’s talent, hard-work and dedication are definitely her best qualities. Every Bride needs Dawn in their lives! Thanks Dawn, you really are a star!

"She was very clear in her advice"

Dawn was brilliant. From the first time that we met and she listened to my ideas at the trial a few months before my wedding to the morning of the Big Day, Dawn was calm, friendly, professional and produced the most fantastic results. She was very clear in her advice and helped me choose a style for my hair but also respected that I was slightly unsure and so made me feel very comfortable and able to feel part of the process and in control of the final outcome.

Dawn also made a huge effort to be at the venue of the wedding on time and without any fuss so I was never anxious about her part in the preparations and she definitely went beyond the call of duty after she had finished both mine and my mum’s hair by helping me with my dress and walking over to the ceremony itself with me. I would definitely recommend Dawn to any bride or friend who needed advice on a hair style or new cut and am not surprised that she never has a free weekend during the ‘wedding season’ as she must be in so much demand! Thanks Dawn, you really helped to make my day

"I knew I would look more than a million dollars"

I would love to thank you Dawn and Emily for giving me and my bridal party the most beautiful updo’s for my fabulous wedding. It was perfect. From the moment I had my trial I knew I would look more than a million dollars. I thought it would be impossible to find someone who could put my hair up having Afro hair/weave. I would highly recommend Rapture hair &Beauty and I will use them again in the near future.

Thanks again ladies

"I was very pleased with my hair"

Dawn was brilliant from the day I asked her if she would style my hair for my wedding through to the day itself. My wedding hair trial was brilliant and was a good opportunity for us to try different things.

On my wedding day Dawn travelled to the hotel I was staying at which took the pressure off loads! I was very pleased with my hair and lots of my friends commented on it. My hair still looked the same at the end of the day as it did at the beginning.

"I was confident that I knew she knew was she was doing, and that it was going to look lovely"

Of all the things I might have been worried about in the run up to my wedding day, how my hair was going to look was never was one them. That is, after I had met Dawn, and we did the hair trial. On the day of the trial several months before, and with very little explanation from me, (and one photo to help with my poor description), Dawn set to work and immediately gave me the kind of style I had been hoping for. So on the actual wedding day, when Dawn arrived, I was so excited to see her, as I was confident that I knew she knew was she was doing, and that it was going to look lovely.

I had also booked Dawn to do my now Mother-in-Law’s hair, and the Groom’s Nana, as well as my bridesmaid, so she set to work. Dawn has a particularly lovely way about her: she is chatty and friendly but also, unlike some hair stylists, she actually listens to what you want, and is very flexible so that you can change anything, even up to the very last minute. I didn’t want someone who was just going to do it their way anyway, and with Dawn, that was never a concern. I felt Dawn easily won my trust and confidence.

Not only do I feel that she did a fantastic job, (as I was utterly delighted with my hair, which held in place for the whole day), but she became part of the day, and it was a pleasure to have her there as we all got ready. She stayed with us until the last moment when we left for the wedding venue, to ensure that everyone was happy with what she had done. All in all, I could not have asked for better. A thoroughly positive, and wonderful experience, which put me in exactly the right frame of mind to go off to my wedding! Thank you Dawn.

"My bridesmaids are still going on about her now!!"

Having seen hair-up that Dawn has done for weddings before, there was no other choice but her for my big day. And just as I knew she would, she blew everyone away with a perfect collection of hair-do’s for me and all my bridesmaids.

My bridesmaids are still going on about her now!! She has an incredible talent for understanding exactly what you want, no matter how formal or informal, and then doing it even better than you could have imagined! Thank you Dawn xx

"“I’m always happy to recommend Dawn and her team”"

I’ve known Dawn in her capacity as a hairdresser for many years and have remained loyal to her and the same few girls, following them on each of their new hairdressing ventures. After years of extremely long bleach blond hair, Dawn has since converted me to a darker blonde shoulder length style and I’m elated with my new look. I always enjoy my visits to Rapture with its relaxing atmosphere, great coffee and lots of welcoming smiles. I’m consistently engrossed by Dawn’s impressive knowledge of hair and I pick up some great advice every time. The team are always on trend with the latest in hair artistry. Dawn and her team are professional, highly skilled, creative, smart and savvy. Dawn and Anna provided hair and make up services for my wedding in the Summer. They were punctual, efficient and as always exuded all the calm and confidence you need on such a morning. Thus, in my job I’m always happy to recommend Dawn and her team to my brides.

"won’t trust anyone else"

Been going to Dawn for a couple years now, won’t trust anyone else with my hair as she always knows what’s best for me. Excellent salon, with fantastic prices/deals on offer. The staff are so friendly and welcoming, you don’t have to be a regular for you to feel comfortable! Always impressed and happy with my colour changes and cuts. Anna recently done my hair (Dawn had a day off) and was very pleased, and she even recommended certain ways to style my hair, and gave me tips! All in all an amazing salon, one which I will highly recommend.

"travelled back hundreds of miles"

Dawn at Rapture has been expertly colouring and cutting my hair for 13 years. I wouldn’t trust anyone else and even travelled back hundreds of miles to see her whilst living out of the area. Since opening the salon I have been consistently impressed by not only the friendliness of the staff but the quality of the services on offer. I now regularly have my nails done by Hannah and treat myself to a spray tan with Beth for a special occasion. My two sons also love going there as the girls are all so good with little ones. It really is a one stop shop for all your hair and beauty needs.

"A truly outstanding salon"

A truly outstanding salon! Everything from the wonderful stylists, beauticians, products and above all welcoming salon atmosphere has put back my faith in going to a hairdressers and beauty therapists. Dawn and her girls make the whole experience wanting you to book time again!

"Love my two weekly visits"

love my two weekly visit to the salon. Not only are all the girls in there lovely, welcoming and friendly- but the quality of all their work is exceptional. Dawn, vicky and Anna have all done a fantastic job with my hair and Hannah is amazing- I’ve never been so happy with my hair and nails as I am now. I would highly recommend rapture to anyone and everyone. It is very fairly priced and they really do look after you. Excellent place x.

"Would thoroughly recommend"

Brilliant salon – every time I leave, love my hair and nails. And have also had a few pampering sessions which make you feel soooo good. Would thoroughly recommend the facial.

"Very friendly, lovely ladies"

Dawn was recommended to me by a friend. She did my wedding hair for me. She did an amazing job and I’ve had my hair done at Rapture ever since. I have always had a great experience here. Very friendly lovely ladies. Very creative. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I’ve had my nails done by Hannah and they were amazing. 5 * salon.

"Is by far an outstanding salon"

As an NVQ Assessor for Hairdressing in the South West, I visit numerous different Hair and Beauty salons within a vast area. Rapture in Plymouth is by far an outstanding salon, which offers it’s clients a wide array of hair/beauty services, using modern and skilled classic methods. It utilises all of the broad skill set it’s team of highly qualified staff possess, at extremely competitive prices. They undertake regular training courses to ensure they’re ahead of the competition, and maintain a high level of knowledge with regards to brands and choice of the best products for their client base (an area that a lot of other salons try to save money by cutting corners and using cheaper versions, which ultimately can cause poor service outcomes for their clients). Rapture Hair and Beauty is setting a very high standard for salons in the area. Well done!

"I have never looked back"

Introduced to Rapture by a friend who couldn’t recommend them enough. Since getting my hair cut at Rapture, I have never looked back. Amazing service, lovely staff and great prices :).

"I have recommended it to a number of friends"

I have used Rapture since it opened, for both hair and beauty treatments. Dawn colours and cuts my hair for me and always does a tremendous job, at a fantastic price. I have also had hair up in the salon, and nails done by Hannah which are always perfect, she pays great attention to detail. The salon has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, I have recommended it to a number of friends and they have all been very pleased with the service they have received. If you want great service and great styling and treatments then visit Rapture, you won’t be disappointed.

"FABULOUS ALL ROUND."

Since Rapture opened last year I have been in and had various treatments with all the stylists and beauticians I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else the girls are fantastic very friendly and extremely talented.. Fantastic atmosphere every time I go in FABULOUS ALL ROUND.

"I travel 80 miles to a different county for my haircut"

Always a brilliant service from the rapture team… I travel 80 miles to a different county for my haircut every time! Amazing work. Thank you :-).

"I felt a million dollars."

Amazing salon, Dawn and the team offer a truly pampering service. The salon has a vintage feel and you will be looked after. The products are a reasonable price to buy to take home ♥ I always leave with a fab color and hair-up x. Dawn also did my wedding party hair , it looked so much better then the hair trial and i felt a million dollars.x

"Dawn was so patient"

I booked Dawn for my hair up and she was fantastic. I went into the first trial knowing I wanted it all up but literally not having a clue with style or design. Dawn was so patient and after a very long trial I was still undecided. She put a lot of time in outside of work to look for styles for me and emailing them to me and so I went back for a second trial with more of an idea. But I was so indecisive as I wanted it to be perfect and I still wasn’t 100% happy after the second trial (entirely my fault!) Dawn was still so patient and kind with me and couldn’t have done anymore to help me decide. After a third trial I had my perfect style and was so pleased with it. I honestly think if I’d gone with anyone else I would have ended up with something I didn’t really like. On the day she was a very calming influence and I knew I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Which I’m sure is unusual for a bride! She definitely deserves to win :)

"I have recommended Rapture to all my friends."

I could not have been happier with my wedding hair. Dawn did exactly as I’d wanted from the trial to the day everything was perfect. She was Not pushy with ideas and let me have what I wanted but also added her creativity into it. My bridesmaids also looked stunning thanks to Anna she did an amazing Job. My hair stayed in all day I didn’t even have to touch it. Every one Commented on how lovely it looked. It was such an important part of the day. Rapture contributed to making my day amazing even just having your hair looking good makes the photos superb. I have returned to Rapture for hair up for my friends wedding and again she did a wonderful job I have recommended Rapture to all my friends.

"I cannot thank Dawn and Anna enough…."

I cannot thank dawn and Anna enough for the amazing wedding hair that they done for us. All together they done 10 people’s hair and make up and not once did any of us feel rushed. I’ve never had so many complements on my hair. All our hair looked absolutely beautiful. The rapture team are truly amazing girls from the day I had my trial I felt at ease, they are all so fun and friendly, I honestly felt like I had extra friends there on the morning of my wedding while they were helping us to look our best. As a hairdresser myself there was only one person I was going to trust with my hair and that was dawn. She’s one in a million and I can’t thank her enough.

"Dawn was Incredible"

Dawn was incredible. Absolute gem. I got let down from a previous hairdresser. My wonderful florist Sharon Mesher recommended Dawn. She did not disappoint lovely friendly lady that went the extra mile. I only wish I lived closer to see her regularly!!! Good luck dawn!!!!

"I couldn’t have asked for more.."

I could not have asked for more from dawn and her team. I had booked for myself and 6 others to have our hair done on the day, myself and 2 others to have their make up done on the day and myself to have my nails done in the salon a couple of days before. There was only myself and another who had a consultation and trail for hair and make up, everything we wanted was taken on board and I was completely happy- nothing was to much to ask. On the day of my wedding they managed to do everyone else’s hair and make up without any prior talk on what they wanted- they did exactly what we all wanted even managed to talk around a 5year old who was persistent in not wanting her hair done to being excited and really happy about it. I only wanted the classic French manicure on acrylics which is what I got but I asked if she could freehand ‘Mrs Doherty’ as well- a tough task considering it’s quite long but she was more than up for the challenge and delivered amazing results- I was so happy and excited. The price for the package was amazing especially for the quality of service we recieved. I always recommend ‘Rapture Hair and Beauty’ to anyone as they are extremely professional but in such a friendly environment and the standard is always amazingly high. I felt really good on my wedding day and that is definitely because of Dawn and her team.

"Travelling to London from Plymouth was amazing!"

I was very impressed with the service that Rapture gave me for my wedding. They were on time, looked after us amazing and the commitment to travelling to London from Plymouth was absolutely amazing. I would high recommend people using them for their weeding service.

"They did exactly what I asked."

Dawn and her make up artist came on a Sunday to get me ready for my wedding at no extra cost. On time and with limited time made me and my two girls look like princesses for the big day. In fact everything went even better than it did at my trial. They did exactly what I asked and were lovely to me. They even did my girls make up for them even though this was not part of the package. So accommodating and fantastic price. I would highly recommend rapture hair and beauty for anyone’s wedding hair and make up.

"I would absolutely recommend"

I could not recommend Dawn and her team of super stars highly enough. After driving out to the remote Cornish countryside, the girls completed a huge total of 10 different styles on the morning of the wedding (for family, the bridal party and me, the bride) without any glitches and within just a few hours. The styles, which showed a range of techniques including plaiting, curling and adding flowers, were all exactly what we wanted. Such great service at such a good price for so much work. Mine especially, a messy, curly, pinned up do, was just lovely and I received so many compliments from the photographers, guests and most importantly my husband! Even the staff at the venue commented specifically on my hair. I was so pleased with the final result which Dawn created from a couple of images I found as inspiration and then adapted to suit my hair type and also the style of my wedding dress that had a lot of detail on the back. It was great to get something so suited to me. The style lasted all day and night without needing any retouching and was actually still in place the next morning! I would absolutely recommend Dawn and her team to any bride looking for a friendly, creative, fast and professional team of stylists for their wedding day. Good luck Rapture!

"Dawn and her team were fantastic."

Dawn and her team were fantastic. I had excellent service and attention through both the trial and the big day. Dawn both did the hairstykes of the whole bridal party whilst also playing with my 3 year old son who took quite a liking to her. She also then gave my brother’s hair a trim for free as he hadn’t managed to book himself a haircut the day before. Her and her whole team were on time, really friendly (it was like we were old friends) and very professional. Thr hair all looked great. I showed pictures of what I wanted and dawn made it a reality. They did all they cohld to make feel an absolute princess on the best day of my life.

"Wedding in Greece"

Dawn was so professional and helpful throughout the whole process……She made me & my bridesmaids look so beautiful at our lovely Greek wedding, she did such a great job using flowers and everyone commented on how beautiful my hair was :) My hair on the day looked better then I had ever hoped :) Thank you again Dawn & Rapture team! xxxx

"Anna was fantastic"

I chose Rapture Hair & Beauty as my makeup artists for my wedding and I am so pleased I did! The service was incredible, one of a kind! During my initial consultation I was put at ease and Anna was fantastic at understanding the vision I was after! It was brilliant to have Anna as part of the day, she put me at ease and finished off my whole bridal look brilliantly! I still get compliments about my makeup when people look at our photos now! Amazing job by the amazing Rapture Hair & Beauty!

"Bright, natural, comfortable and calming."

These girls made my day amazing right from the start! They came to my home first thing and were bright, natural, comfortable and calming. The whole experience was great and the styles of hair and make up were individual to myself and my 4 bridesmaids. All styles reflected their personalities beautifully. Cannot recommend Dawn and her team highly enough.

"Always satisfied…"

Couldn’t fault all of these girls. They made me feel absolutely fabulous on my wedding day & my hair & make up latest all day. Always satisfied with the service I get.

"The end product was brilliant"

I have been going to Rapture for a couple of years now therefore it was inevitable i would be using them to do my wedding haor. Dawn at Rapture did hair up for 6 bridesmaids, mother of the bride and myself as the bride. She came out to our hotel so we didnt have to rush around on the morning of the wedding. She was professional and worked so hard to get us all done and in good time. She was really friendly and chatted to all the girls building a rapport quickly with each one of them. The end product was brilliant and all of our hairs stayed in all day. Really good price and good value for money.

"I was over the moon"

I was over the moon with service provided by Rapture hair and beauty, everyone commented on how beautiful my hair and the hair of my bridesmaids were! Even so one of my bridesmaids are having Rapture do the hair for their wedding this year! Exceptional salon with great talent!!!

"she did a fantastic job"

Dawn did my bridal hair and my bridal parties hair for my wedding. She turned up early, and was fully attentive to my needs on the day! She did a fantastic job of all our hair whilst claiming my nerves!! She is super talented and excellent value for money. I couldn’t have wished for better

"All hair looked beautiful"

Great service from rapture for my wedding. Bride and bridesmaid hair. Very thorough trial to find out exactly what I would like. All the hair looked beautiful, many compliments from everyone

"Loved my experience"

Amazing talent at rapture hair and beauty. Loved my experience from start to finish. Would always recommend any bride to this salon. Xx

"Fantastic Job!"

The team at Raptute made myself, my bridesmaid and my mum feel wonderful on my special day creating beautiful wedding hair. The service was fantastic from booking through to the wedding day itself. I couldn’t have been happier with the end result, they really did a fantastic job!

"My hair looked amazing…"

Rapture were fantastic from the moment I arrived for my trial hair and makeup. They listened to me, made helpful suggestions (but did not push me into a decision) and did a fantastic job. My hair looked amazing and my makeup so natural and fresh. Everyone commented on what a great job they did, and how calming and professional they were on the day, even though they had me, 7 bridesmaids and 2 mothers to attend to (on site). They were so flexible and really lovely, they were a real part of the wedding morning and I would thoroughly recommend them to any bride (or groom).

"So so talented"

So so talented. Dawn was really approachable and friendly, during the hair trial and then at the wedding. Very professional and am still amazed how quickly she can make the most beautiful hairstyles!

"I would recommend Rapture"

Dawn was fantastic at my practice and on my wedding day, she made me feel at ease and really listened to what I wanted, I was so happy with my hair and it stayed looking amazing all day and night- I was so happy with it and would recommend Rapture to any future brides
