Style Me Quirky. What an amazing experience!
I have just had a wonderful days training course with an amazing instructor (Pops), so anyone out there needing a makeover (or a makeup lesson) don’t hesitate! My experience was fun, exciting informative and yes Quirky and I loved it.
As a Beauty Therapist I have spent the last few years working on my client’s makeups for weddings, balls and proms making them feel so special for their big day. I wanted a truly different and unique experience and this is where I found it! Pops’s, experience, enthusiasm and love of life has rubbed off on me and I am raring to go and so will you be. Don’t be shy send him and email and get going.
“Yes heaven is a place on earth and that’s Pops Studio! I have just had the Drag Queen Quirkover with Pops and Kelly and am still as exited as an 8 year old girl on her Birthday
The attention to detail was amazing with the make up and clothes and to say they created a good girl gone bad would be the understatement of the century. They turned a normal guy you would not look at twice in the street into an outrageous, loud & OTT Drag Queen. As the eyebrows were covered and the make up built up I felt myself changing into the alter ego created by the team. The “new me”was amazing and I really felt the part when we were ready for the photos.
The attention to details with the photo shoot was amazing and on a par with anything any top model would expect. There were constant changes to hair, clothing and lighting by Pops and Kelly. They gave me constant advise on poses and made me feel really relaxed. This meant we got some fantastic shots and I really felt the centre of the universe and they got the best out of me.
Of all the coolest fun things I’ve done in my life this is right in the top tier. I’ve had lots of dressing and photo shoots but this is the ultimate one and I would recommend you all put a Drag Queen Quirkover on your bucket list.
Now could someone help me off this cloud?
PS when can I come back?”
“I’ve never written an online review or testimonial before because I’ve never felt that the service or product was deserving. However, I’m compelled to tell you about the fabulous day I had at Style Me Quirky! I have to start by saying this is not at all like other dressing services I have experienced. This is not ‘one size fits all’. Special care is taken to understand the clients style interests prior to the appointment, so that appropriate makeup and outfits can be prepared for the day. It’s Pops’ vast knowledge and experience, passion and attention to detail that sets Style Me Quirky apart from other lesser services.
When I turned up I was awkward and nervous, but Pops and his assistant Tracey soon put this novice ‘girl’ at ease. Before I knew it I was posing and preening in front of the camera like the ‘goth-punk-manga’ model of my dreams – Lol! I am now awaiting the finished photographs like an impatient, excited child at Christmas! To all the boyz and girlz who are feeling apprehensive about booking an appointment with Style Me Quirky, I assure you it will be the best money you have ever spent. A professional studio shoot elsewhere would cost at least double the price – and I have serious doubts if another service could ever compete. But Style Me Quirky is so much more than that – the day after the appointment I was glowing. The experience has given this girl confidence and a real sense of possibility. I will DEFINITELY be attending again. Thanx again Pops, Luv Jemma xxx.”
Pops and the team were fantastic, we had a couple of girls who were quite shy and they made them feel right at ease during the styling and photo shoot. All our outfits were perfectly matched to suit our shapes and sizes. Not only did we have a fab day, all have awesome photos as a keepsake of the day. Thank you to all of the team, you were all super lovely.
Jon & Ed – Thanks for doing a great job with the photo’s of our new showroom opening the last couple of days. Moving video on LED screens isn’t the easiest thing to shoot, so we were pleased that you spent the time planning the best methods capture the quality of the screens, and also that you took the photographs working around our clients in a professional and discreet manner.
Most importantly the end result images look great and are just what we need, we’re already getting some great feedback.
I just wanted to say an absolutely huge thank you to the amazing Style Me Quirky team for an utterly fantastic shoot on Sunday! I needed some pics to get my quirky yoga brand up and running – Pops and his team were absolutely instrumental during the briefing & planning process – they really helped me focus the concept and sharpen my brand. His styling genius ensured I had a vast selection of super cool outfits to bend and stretch in – and coupled with his make-up guidance, he totally ensured I looked the part! The creativity of the photographers on the day was absolutely inspiring – and I am totally thrilled with the photo results! Great work guys – you are an outstanding team!
Hugs n love

Thank you so much for a true “Hollywood” experience @ SMQ!! All the preparation work paid off, all the dresses, shoes, wigs and the accessories were all laid out before my arrival. So, in no time, even though Pops was an assistant down, makeup was on and my first “Fading Film Star” was being put through her paces by Pops the photographer!
An all round fabulous day, fantastic outfits (even one of mine!) and stunning photographs, it was so intense, we lost track of time. If you want to try something a bit different, Pops and SMQ should be your next stop.
Thanks again, Sam x
I had a blast yesterday. You made me feel a million dollars and look about two million – I really appreciate the care you took in prepping the looks and then in making me up (those eyelashes were FAB) dressing me and putting me through the paces of the photoshoot. It was an experience where you and Ed made me feel truly welcome and relaxed and where you pushed me to experiment with some wonderfully extreme femme looks that I just LOVED! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Worth every penny. Maybe I will take up modelling as a career. Ha ha!
And I can’t wait to see the finished photos!
What a great day! We were made so welcome and put at ease straightaway. The make up, clothes and photos are amazing. Anything you want – from standard day to day dresses to
wild and wacky! Whatever you want – anything goes! If you’re wondering if it’s worth it – definitely! We will definitely be coming back!

We all got over to the SmQ studio on time and everything was already sorted! The Style Me Quirky team were working 24/7 the past few days for this to go as smoothly as possible; finding outfits that would work, hunting down a location – you could tell they had really put the effort in. All the hard work paid off as the day went perfectly! Pops is a lovely guy and knows how to bring the best out in everyone, he did just that too! Along with all the rest of the SmQ team, if your looking for photos that make your band stand out I couldn’t recommend Style Me Quirky more highly! Great price, really lovely team, loads of fun and totally professional!
Pops, Kelly and Cathy Friday was an amazing day for me again and I cant thank you enough, and I cant wait to come back as soon as finances allow, (maybe we can use the boots next time…lol).
So to all the girls out there thinking of getting a makeover, all I can say is, if you want a very special day made even better give Pops a call. You wont regret it and you will go back for more.
Again to all at Style Me Quirky thank you for a wonderful time, big hugs to all of you.
MAGIC MANDY !!!!!
Hiya pops, just wanted to tell you that you made me cry tears of joy this weekend, I think you Kelly and Kathy were so so brilliant , caring and professional that I was stunned! I’m gonna write a blog about the time I’ve had so be prepared for lots of positive comments! Thank you so much again and please give Kathy a hug from me Xxxx
Firstly let me say I never imagined I would be the kind of person to visit a dressing service as I had assumed they were only for people who needed to dress in secret. After looking at the Style Me Quirky website and Pops excellent pictures I was sure they could help me work on some new styles I had been thinking about but wasn’t quite ready to take the plunge with in case the looks didn’t work for me.
On arrival the first thing I realised was that Kelly and Pops are two of the coolest people I had ever met, so friendly and welcoming that I felt at home in the first minute of my arrival.
Kelly showed me through the outfits she had picked out for me and I was really impressed with the quality and range available. I had a huge range of shoes and wigs to choose from so I could turn any of the dresses into many different looks and styles.
The makeover session was just amazing and their knowledge is obviously absolute. They walk you through the entire process and I now have countless new things to try with my own make-up. As soon as I got home I was ordering the items I needed to recreate the look, which I hope to achieve with a lot of practice.
Wigs was something I had no experience with and was really looking forward to trying. I assumed I would need to spend a lot of money to get a quality look but Pops showed me how to take care of a simple synthetic wig and I’m now starting my own collection.
The dresses available were of the highest quality I’d seen. The dresses I own myself aren’t bad but these were really something else. It was so great to be able to experiment and see what worked for me without having to spend a fortune on each dress.
It so happens I’m completely out and very confident with my cross dressing, confident enough to travel on the tube even! That said, after my make-up was done I didn’t get a good look at myself until I was fully prepared and when I stepped in front of the mirror my breath was literally taken away. Never in my dreams would I have imagined I could attain that appearance, it was a real testimony to the Style Me Quirky team skill and ability.
I’ve never been comfortable in front of the camera whether in boy or girl mode, I’ve always felt awkward when trying to do a false smile. This was my biggest worry before the shoot but there was absolutely no issues with this as it was practical impossible for me to stop smiling as I was having the time of my life.
Now I’m so confident about the image I wanted to try I’ll be kept busy for some time. Its just a matter of time before I get some new ideas in my head and then I’ll be straight back up to experiment with them. Thanks so much Pops and Kelly! xxx
Wow! What can I say? Enjoyment factor was off the scale, what a great and fantastic experience it was for my first Quirkover and certainly won’t be my last!
Its very hard for me to put into words how brilliant the day was, there just are not enough superlatives in the English language, but I will try my best.
I was a little nervous to start with upon the initial consultation, but Pops soon put me at ease and by the end of the conversation it was like we had known each other for ages.
Upon arrival at the studio both pops and Kelly were absolutely Fantastic, it was as if i had known them for years, and this certainly put me at ease, they are so lovely and very easy to talk to. I have to say that Both Pops and Kelly certainly know their stuff and it was very interesting to share in their styling knowledge of what works, what doesn’t, and the make up tips they shared with me.
I was lucky enough to have three different outfits to model on the day, and each one was something fab that I would not have thought of wearing myself. Throughout the whole of my time, I felt so special, plus I got some great creative ideas to try at home. I have been to other transvestite dressing services in the past and I can say that the Style Me Quirky team offers something truly unique and an unforgettable experience throughout.
I can honestly say that no-one is offering a service like this anywhere else
Pops shared some fantastic ideas that he has for the future and I cannot wait for these to come to fruition so that I can be apart of them.
A definite 5 Star experience in my view, and I would definitely recommend Style me Quirky to everyone. I cant wait to book my next appointment,
I’m Hooked !!!
First of all i want to say what a great day I had at Style Me Quirky. From the moment I arrived I was put at ease and made to feel relaxed and one of the girls.
You soon sat me down and began the unenviable task of making me look fabulous but, guess what, somehow you did it!
I was given make up tips and picked up some styling ones, finding new colours that would sit in my everyday wardrobe and my new quirky one.
From beginning to end I felt unique, treated with first class care and attention and I found myself not wanting to go home.
From being slightly shy of the outcome, I soon found I wanted to try on more outfits and more daring styles. The experience was so different to my last makeover, which was some time ago, back then it felt rigid and really made aware I was on a time limit. At Style Me Quirky I felt as though I was on a fashion photo shoot and the outfits that I wore were chosen especially for me, if something wasn’t right, the team would fuss over me and were making sure I took the best picture possible and look my best. Attention to detail was everything and we shared some good laughs as well and it felt like time was no issue.
It was an experience I will never forget and can’t wait to go back. I hope to stay in touch and visit the house of Quirk as often as possible.
I would recommend any friend to pay a visit.
Thank you for quirking me over big style!
Hi Pops, Cathy and Carly
I would like to thank you all for a wonderful day of pampering.
The results were absolutely amazing. The Make up tips were second to none, and having tried a few out, even without the pro make up yet, I have already seen a major improvement in my femme facial appearance.
This was my first photo shoot ever and I really do not cope well in front of a camera, no matter who I am at the time. I would just like to say thank you for your patience and good direction to get the shots we did.
I would like to say a special thanks to Sam for stepping in at the last minute as your regular photographer could not attend because of a family bereavement, and thank you for arranging this at such short notice as so many arrangements had already been made my end.
Again thank you for a wonderful day and I love some of Cathy’s ideas about alternative fashion. So girls if you want to look truly a girl and maybe with a little quirky twist I would highly recommend Style Me Quirky, never thought I could look so good in a bright purple wig………lol
Pops I wish you and your team all the best in your new adventure and I hope to be back real soon.
Love and wishes to you all
Hiya Pops and Cathy,
Thanks again for the wonderful experience the other day!
Never could have dreamed you could make me look so amazing!
All I can say is, wow!
It was my first ever photoshoot,but it was great to do it, was a bit nervous in the beginning but that changed soon.
In your very skilled hands you really turned me into a girl!
Can really recommend it to anyone who has a girl inside them, and lets be honest,every girl needs some pampering once in a while!
But in the end you both gave me so much more then a makeover and a photoshoot,all the tips and trics you gave me made me even more curious to go on perfecting and exploring the girl in me!
Thanks again for the amazing time!
We got in touch with Pops and Cathy to try and get some interesting style tips and some band photos that got away from the bland, looks that dominates our market. It is so important to stand out from the crowd in this business so when the opportunity arose we hoped we had found a worthy alternative. Having never had any professional styling, or many photoshoots at all for that matter, we were nervous.
All nervousness immediately shot out of the window when we met Cathy for a pre-shoot coffee and chat. She was passionate, fun, bubbly and well prepared and gave us a reassuring set of photos about her plans for some of the looks. Boys suitably reassured that they would be more military jackets and braces than ballgowns and glitter, we got excited. A few days before the shoot Alexander and I went to Pop’s for the pre-shoot fitting. It was relaxed, there was pizza and wine..and a beautiful ginger cat, and the outfits were fantastic. Pops took some snap shots and we got really excited about the shoot.
We loved the location for the shoot, the Motel de Nowhere seemed the perfect blend of quirky glam, urban cool and vintage charm and we met Tim the pro photographer. Stoic and to the point he was thoroughly professional throughout and the lighting and scene changes etc went without a hitch. Pops and Cathy were always buoyant and charming helping us in and out of outfits and offering priceless direction to those of us (ahem) who are clearly not models! All in all we couldn’t have asked for more.
StylemeQuirky are a brilliant for a mix of professionalism, creative insight, embarrassment aversion and a huge dose of fun. Eutopia would like to say a massive thank you to Pops, Cathy and Tim for all their hard work. A day which could have been nerve-wracking, awkward and uninspiring was made one to remember and recommend because of these crazy cats. We are thrilled with the photos and can safely say they stand out from the crowd! Hope to work with all the Stylemequirky team again soon!
Had a great time yesterday would have preferred to stay with you guys than do the gig! The gig went great though so prob for the best we did go! It’s so good to work alongside professionals like you and Cathy, thanks again for everything, we love the photos and love your work! Looking forward to seeing you very soon x
