Wedding Styling

I'll enhance your natural beauty without altering your individual style and I can guarantee this - I'll make you shine! All hair types and styles catered for - long hair, short hair, 'up dos' or blow dry. I'll advise you on the best style to compliment your face shape, hair type, dress and flowers and the best products to suit. .

The consultation session is included as part of a booking for your wedding day. Before your hair is styled, to ensure that it is perfect, it is important we spend some time talking to you so I know exactly what you want. After all you will be looking at the photos for many years to come! There are a few helpful things that you can do to make sure you get the most out of your consultation: When deciding how to wear your hair on your wedding day, the first thing you should consider is the 'look' you are going for. Do you want your hair to be glamorous, natural and understated, chic and sleek, a classic look or something a little bit quirky and different? What styles do you particularly like? Showing me pictures of styles you like is really helpful. It doesn't have to be 'the one' but it will give us ideas and inspiration to work from. If you are still not sure we can look at your dress, flowers, the venue, and any theme you may have chosen. Your face shape, hair length, dress style and neckline are also things to consider.

Preparing for your big day

I always recommend we arrange a trial around six to eight weeks before your wedding. A trial is a chance for us to meet and try out some different styles. We'll discuss your ideas and your inspiration to create a style that's perfect for you based on your dress and chosen hair ornamentation. It's a great idea to bring your veil or any hair jewelry you have chosen. If you would like hair jewelry but can't decide what is best for you we can decide on the ideal accessories for your look. Hair jewelery is charged separately. If you'll be marrying abroad, we'll create your perfect style in the studio. I'll provide you with photographs of your finalished style to take with you so your wedding stylist will have an exact picture of how you would like your hair styled.

I'll ensure that every detail of the styling requirements for you and your wedding party are met on your big day.

General Styling

I offer a full range of general hairdressing and styling services for men and women ranging from a cut, colouring and perming through to a cut and full restyle.

Extensions

Hair extensions can be added to create a variety of hairstyles. Length, volume and thickness can be achieved using 100% human hair with the cuticle intact to enhance the natural hair. Colour additions can be added to achieve a highlighted look with colours that are not always possible to create with chemicals. Extensions can last in the hair for 10-12 weeks with regular maintanance. These are the hair extension methods available: Hot Bond system: resins are heated to form hard bonds that attach extensions to the root area of the natural hair giving a freeflowing natural look. Extensions are placed in the hair individually allowing a variety of colours to be mixed to match a hair colour exactly. This method is also useful for individual strands to be added of different colours which give a highlighted effect to the hair. Link system: no chemicals are used in this method. Small copper links are used to hold the hair extension to the root area of the natural hair. Extensions are added individually to again give a free flow natural effect and again single strands can be placed to give a highlighted effect. Weft system: wefts of hair are measured to the exact size of the customers head and placed in rows using a cold adhesive that fuses with the natural hair. The natural hair is protected in the weft until removal.

I'm a state registered hairdresser with 20 years experience in the industry. I'm a member of the freelance hair & beauty federation, constantly keeping up with current trends and developing new skills with regular training from some of the best known hairdressers in the industry such as Vidal Sasoon and Patrick Cameron.


Hair pieces

A custom made skin or silk piece is used in areas of hair loss. The hair piece provides a solution that looks natural, blends perfectly with your natural hair and fits closely to your scalp to ensure your solution is undetectable even on close inspection.

Volumisers

Volumisers can be added to thinning hair to add body, leaving you with a fuller looking head of hair.

Full Wigs

A full wig covers the head completely. A full wig provides a solution that looks natural and fits closely to your scalp to ensure your solution is undetectable even on close inspection.

 

Your scalp contains around 100,000 hair follicles and it's normal to lose around 100 hairs each day. Severe hair loss affects both men and women: 40% of all men have some noticeable degree of hair loss by age 35 this rises to around 50% of all women by the same age. Male pattern baldness and female pattern hair loss are the most common hair loss conditions in the UK.

Hair loss is caused by a range of conditions such as alopecia, male and female pattern baldness and by the stress of daily life.
