Advice for Brides Episode 2 on #LoveTalkTV

By Bridal Hair, Hair Tips & Tutorials, News & Press No Comments

I really enjoy working with brides because they are all different, and some brides are not always sure about what it is they want from their hair – so I, as the Hairy Godmother offer exactly that on my show for LoveTalk TV on Sky…. if you have missed it, don’t worry they add the episodes to YouTube too!

In the episode below I help my bride-to-be choose her hairstyle to suit her dress choices… I absolutely love the transformation of the use of a Balmain clip-in fringe on the boho look!

Watch it here… and be inspired for your special day.

#Bridal Trends Spring Summer 2017

By Bridal Hair, Hair Tips & Tutorials, Weddings No Comments

With bridal season much upon us, and my consultations being back to back, I thought I’d share two trends for bridal hair in 2017:

1) Soft curly ponytails, dressed to one side will be a key trend for 2017. These voluminous ponies look effortlessly romantic. Bride Lisa Davies’ hairstyle was secured with a Balmain pony and lots of Batiste dry shampoo, which meant it stood up to the wind, so this style is perfect for outdoor venues.

2) Boho trends are so versatile, and vintage-boho is definitely going to continue throughout 2017. Bride Hannah’s messy crown area with loose curls is classic, but by adding a structured vintage finger wave I adapted it into a show-stopping twist. The bridesmaids have unique styles tied in with a themed braid, including the adapted braided mohawk, which is edgy and modern. These boho styles are catered for the individual face-shapes and personalities of each bridesmaid.

Even with the unpredictable weather, brides still opt to tie the knot on the beach… and when they do, they have to ensure they choose a hairstyle that is going to look great despite a breeze or a little bit of rain, or indeed the arm sunshine.

This is one of my brides and she opted for a braided boho style with fresh flowers…

Boho hairstyles work great with the great outdoors and great British weather, because they are messy, undone or purposely pulled out in places, and so a little help from the wind is fine. It is still very important to secure the hair with grips and using a good hairspray.

Batiste dry shampoo is fab for adding volume that will having staying power in the warmer weather too.
