Margret did my bridal hair & makeup as well as my bridal party and everything could not have gone smoother! She truly is an artist and is amazing at what she does.

Once our hair and makeup were done, nothing moved all day long! And we were married on Reynisfjara Beach, took photos at Dyrholaey, climbed a hillside to a cave, and a went to a few other windy spots! She was professional and super kind and sweet. An absolute wonderful woman to work with!

I highly recommend Margret as your Hair and Makeup Artist!!!

Lucy's review on Rock My Wedding (
"I really struggled finding someone to do both hair and make-up. I spent a lot of money on trials which is why I want to call out the angel that is Margret Magnus who did my make-up and up-do. It was one of the hottest days of the year the day we got married and somehow my make-up stayed picture perfect all day. I felt like I was playing dress-up whenever I tried on a veil so had Margret place fresh flowers prepared by the florist in my hair."

"Margret made the stress melt away! With only a week's notice to my wedding day, she was very prompt in all communications with me. As a bride who previously suffered with telogen effluvium, I was very insecure about the texture and thinning of my hair causing issue. I sent her photos before hand of both my natural hair and the look I was hoping to create. She assured me it would be no trouble at all.

I was still a bit anxious, but once she arrived to my suite, her experience showed and made the stress go away. She began working heat and minimal product into my hair, and in about thirty minutes or so she had woven the most beautiful, romantic bun of curls on my head. Every pin was obviously placed with care and could not be seen throughout the hair.

She made sure I felt secure and beautiful before accepting my payment. I only wish I'd had her do my makeup too! I highly recommend her for bridal services or other occasions where her talent would surely still show."

"Again, a BIG thank you for being truly fantastic! Below are a few words of what I would say to others thinking of booking you...

Margret you are a true beauty inside and out. From the moment I met you, I knew my short search for my wedding makeup was over (you are the only person I tried).

You are so talented, but so modest and so very sweet with it - the perfect combination!
I absolutely loved my wedding makeup and most importantly it stayed perfect all day in the hot Italian sunshine. If only I could keep you in my pocket to pamper me everyday!

Book Margaret, trust me and my gorgeous girls. They all agree, you will not regret it!"

“I was incredibly pleased with the makeup on my wedding day. I had certain ideas about how I wanted the makeup and you completely perfected it.

The makeup also lasted so incredibly well – long into the night!

You are a real professional and your presence is very comfortable and relaxed. I recommend you 100%.  Thank you”

Margret I am writing to say thank you so much!! The wedding look was perfect and lasted until the end of our 3am dancing afterparty!
I received many compliments on my hair and makeup. My friends even asked, "Have you been able to see the back of your hair? It's so intricate!" My sister's look was also perfect.

Thank you very much. It was a pleasure to work with you

Margret was a perfect choice for my wedding day! Since we were having a low key destination wedding, I almost decided to do my hair and makeup myself, but I am SO glad that I decided otherwise. She was quick to respond, worked with me through email and Pinterest boards to figure out what I wanted, and even drove out of her way to our AirBnB the morning of the big day. She made me feel like such a beautiful bride and I am so glad that she was a part of the adventure.

I really enjoyed working with Margret on my wedding day. She's such a talented makeup artist and hair stylist and was an absolute pleasure to work with from beginning to end!


Margret has a great eye and knows exactly how to bring out the best features of her clients. She did my makeup for a pre-wedding shoot, the makeup had to last the whole day from 7am-10pm!

Then she did my makeup and hair, along with 6 of my bridesmaids on my wedding day. We all felt so beautiful and confident, thanks to Margret!


Seriously, hire Margret ASAP, she is a rare find!

Margret met and exceeded all of my elopement needs. I knew after reading her resume and seeing photos of her work that she was the one for the job. We did not have a trial run but I assure you that you can book her with full confidence that she is talented and can deliver according to your needs.

I showed her a couple photos of inspiration that I had saved. She is so gifted she created the look I wanted without any difficulty.

My elopement was outside in Icelandic weather and my hair and makeup held up through it all.

Not only is she wildly talented but she is an absolute pleasure to be around. She made my wedding day an absolute dream and had the perfect energy to create a peaceful and fun environment.

I would recommend her for absolutely any occasion.

She has no limits in her talent.

"I absolutely loved my make up on the day, I definitely looked the best I have ever looked! It also stayed looking great all day despite the hot weather!

My bridesmaids were also very happy, telling me they felt like movie stars and trying to book you for their own wedding!


You were also lovely from start to finish. I really enjoyed going for the trial, I felt you listened to what I wanted and you were a very calming influence on the morning of the wedding! So really can't say thanks enough!!"

I feel so incredibly blessed to of had Margret as my hair and makeup artist on my wedding day. Margret is an extremely talented, professional, sweet, positive, and very down to earth hair and makeup artist.

My pastor introduced me to Margret’s online bridal portfolio and I instantly knew she was the one I wanted to work with. To help ease my nerves, Margret came over the day before and did a full bridal hair & makeup trial session. Margret used nothing but the best hair and make up tools to help create some of the ideas I had shared with her. Our conversation was effortless and very calming. I truly felt at ease as she explained everything she was doing. Margret is a delight to be with and made sure to answer all my questions and explain everything that needed to be done on the day of the wedding.

Even with all the rain, wind, and snow my hair and makeup held up perfectly for the entirety of the wedding. You will be in great hands when you work with Margret. I highly recommend her to any bride to be who wants to look and feel beautiful on their special day. I know I will always go back to her whenever I visit Iceland!

Margret, you are an extremely talented, one of a kind gem, and am truly thankful for all that you did to make me feel like the most beautiful bride in the world. Thank you so much! 

Wedding in Vík, Iceland 

Margret is so talented and amazing to work with! We had to move our wedding a day due to weather and she was able to step in at the last minute. I showed her a few photos of what I was looking for and she was able to achieve the style I wanted.

My hair and makeup also continued too look great during a full day of hiking through waterfalls, rain and wind. I felt really confident and beautiful all wedding day.


I would recommend Margret to anyone, she crushed it!

I could not be happier that Margret was able to do my hair and make up for my wedding day.

Even after hours of eating and dancing, both my hair and make up looked just as fresh as when she first applied it. She was able to style my hair and make up even better than I hoped. She also provided great ideas to elevate the look even further. My three bridesmaids were also incredibly happy with their make up.


I would also like to note how lovely and friendly Margret was, she made us all comfortable and understood the chaos of the wedding day. She was also so understanding and flexible while we rescheduled our wedding due to covid.

I highly recommend Margret for any event you are considering hair and make up!

 “Margret was absolutely amazing to work with. She took her time to ensure that everything was perfect.


My fiancé and I were super amazed at how well the makeup stayed despite the crazy rain and winds that we experienced that day! The makeup did not smudge one bit! Thank you once again!”

Margret is amazing. We went to Iceland for our honeymoon photoshoot and Margret was very professional. She is very good at working with your features to make you the most beautiful version of yourself instead of turning you into someone else, even with my Asian features!


She also did the hair up perfectly, the bridal braids that I have been dreaming of! I was very lucky to have found Margret, and would totally recommend her for anyone looking for a pair of able hands (and a big warm heart!) on your special day!

"I was so pleased working with you for our wedding. Since my husband and I had never been to Iceland, planning this whole process from a different country was challenging at times. However, after my first conversation with you, my mind was at ease that you would exceed my expectations, and you certainly did!


I remember looking in the mirror after you finished and thinking, "wow! I didn't know I could look this pretty!" It was everything I had imagined and more! You had told me how unpredictable Iceland's weather could be, and from the rain shower during our ceremony to the high winds at sunset, my hair and make up held up perfectly.


We had a long day of 12+ hours travelling the Southern coast, and with each glance in the mirror I was so happy with how I looked the entire time. You were so pleasant to chat with both via email and in person, and I am so happy that our paths crossed and you were able to make our wedding day extra glamorous! Thank you so much"

Wedding in Reykjavík, Iceland

I chose Margret to do my hair and makeup after seeing her work. I felt it was practical to have one person doing both the hair and makeup.

She did not disappoint! She was very attentive to what I wanted and also gave advice on what she thought would look good on me. I wanted a rather natural look as I don‘t wear makeup on a day to day basis. She took everything I wanted on board and delivered just what I had asked for.

On the day of my wedding I felt so relaxed throughout the session. The results were beyond my expectations. Margrét is skilled at what she does, both when it comes to hair and makeup, and that can be hard to find. It is evident that she has a lot of experience and her work is impeccable and meticulous. I couldn't have chosen a better hair- and makeup artist for my big day. I received so many complements on my hair and makeup, and continue to do so when people see the pictures from my wedding.

If you are looking for the right person to do the same for you, look no further! You've found the right person in Margrét and you will not be disappointed!

Margret was absolutely amazing to work with for my wedding hair and make-up!

We planned a trial run of both the day before which was ideal then on the day of the wedding my hair and make-up turned out better than I could have imagined!

She was able to totally understand my vision for both my hair and make-up via emailed images. Also, she was a calming presence as I was getting ready.

Highly recommend!

Wedding in Hveragerði, Iceland

I'm not what one might call a girly-girl. I don't wear much makeup and my hair is normally tied up, out of the way. So when the time came to find someone to make me look fancy for my wedding day, I was a bit nervous. I didn't want to scare my husband-to-be away by looking like some sort of nightmare clown. Our wedding photographers recommended Margret to me. I'm so glad we were able to work together. 


Margret was very easy to work with. I sent her a few photos of what I was hoping for and she nailed it. My makeup was lovely. It stayed put all day, even after I was soaked by a waterfall. Even my hair stayed nice and wavy, which was a minor miracle. I really loved the way she arranged the flowers in my hair.


Margret also worked on my sister, mom, and step-mom, and they all looked exceptionally gorgeous. She wasn't visibly stressed out when my toddler nephew decided to run off with some of her tools! 


I highly recommend Margret's services for your wedding day!

Margret was amazing!

Our photographers recommended her and she exceeded all my expectations! She provided guidance and suggestions, based off her experience and delivered the look I was hoping to achieve. I was on a tight timeline and Margret worked quickly, while taking the time to make sure I was happy with everything. She was a calming presence on a day that had the potential to be quite stressful.


My make-up didn't budge even after an entire day of being outside (with a little rain)!

"I found Margret while I was googling for a local makeup artist in Reykjavik to do my hair and makeup for my wedding photo shoot. I am so happy I found Margret as she was lovely and professional!


Communication was smooth from the beginning and she answered all the questions that I have. She arrived on time at our hotel with all her gears. She listened and captured what I wanted. She was also very calm which I highly appreciate.


My make up and hair stayed fresh throughout the day (I almost didn't want to wipe it off when my day was over!).


Thank you Margret for making me look amazing and feel gorgeous that day!"
