About

Amelia Carmela

Hi, I’m so glad you found me!

I’m an independent hair stylist, makeup artist and wedding hair specialist. Working from House of Hair on Union Street in the heart of Bristol’s busy Shopping Quarter, I offer an extensive range of cutting and colouring services, restorative Olaplex treatments, special occasion hair and professional wedding hair and makeup.

As well as gorgeous hair, I work hard to give every client a fun, relaxing experience. I’m not big on formalities and I hate intimidating salons, so the space I work from is stylish, cosy and laidback. I talk a lot, overshare, and occasionally swear. There’s usually good music and lots of laughter.

With over a decade of experience and numerous professional qualifications, you can trust me to provide expert advice, innovative ideas and the very best care for your hair. I’m passionate about creating your vision and exceeding expectations. Ultimately, I want you to walk out of the salon looking and feeling sassier and more confident than when you came in. No bad hair days and a style you love! 

My Approach

Each appointment begins with a thorough consultation. Along with any concerns, we’ll discuss previous treatments and run through your likes and dislikes. Once we’ve established what you want to achieve, I’ll explain the best way to go about it, ensuring you understand if, when and how I can create your desired look. 

I plan my schedule to suit my clients’ needs, so once you’re in the chair, you’ll never, ever feel rushed. There’s always time for a good gossip and you’ll be treated to delicious refreshments throughout. Before you leave, I’ll provide all the relevant aftercare advice and share useful tips to keep your hair looking hot once you’re home.

I welcome vegan and vegetarian clients and I’m proud to use cruelty-free hair colour, shampoos, conditioners and styling products.

Weddings

Based in the South West, I provide wedding hair and makeup in Bristol, Bath, The Cotswolds, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire. Professionally trained and incredibly passionate about my craft, I’ve worked with countless brides, using my knowledge and expertise to ensure they look and feel their absolute best. Think soft, relaxed hairstyles and enhanced natural beauty.   

After an initial consultation and trial, I’ll travel to you on your wedding day to create a hair and makeup look that perfectly complements your dress and all the little details you’ve devoted so much time and attention to. My kit is stocked with high-end, professional products and I favour brands that are cruelty free.

With votes cast by my own brides and judging performed by top industry professionals, I’m proud to have been named Best Wedding Hairstylist in the South West at The Wedding Industry Awards 2020. In 2023, I was highly commended in the same category.

Me

I live in Swindon with my son, Frankie, and our cat, Arthur. When I’m not working, you’ll usually find me hanging out with them, watching Disney films, playing with dinosaurs and generally trying to make Frankie giggle as much as possible! Once he’s tucked up in bed, I like to curl up on the sofa in front of some trashy TV. Aside from hair and beauty, I love a good workout, but my biggest passion is spending time with friends and family over delicious food and great wine. Or a large G&T, I’m not fussy! 

see you in the salon!
