Jo & Henry

I Knew, as soon as I met Jo, that her bridal hair was going to be amazing and so much fun to do!

Jo has the most beautiful, naturally wavy, flame red hair. Every hairstylists dream!

The front, sides and crown of Jo's hair were finger waved, using L'oreal Tecni Pli setting spray as my chosen styling product. The waves were clipped into place until set and dry, using Patrick Cameron Butterfly Clips.  After gently softening the waves with my fingers, the back of the hair was rolled up into this gorgeous vintage style. which totally complimented the overall look of a 1920's-1930's wedding. 

The stunning hairpiece by My Fayre Favourite sits beautifully, tucked into the roll.

Lissie & James

A beautiful country garden wedding in Chiddingstone, near Penshurst, in Kent.

Lissie chose a simple, elegant hairstyle, yet with a touch of boho incorporating fishtail braids, to compliment her beautiful lace bodice gown from Isabella Grace Bridal Boutique.

The hair was prepped with GHD straighteners and a thermal protecting spray to smooth the hair before styling. A little dry shampoo was used for grip and texture, and to help with thickening the fishtail braids and twists. Fine wisps of hair were teased from all around the face and nape to soften.

 
Francesca & Nick

I just loved Francesca's grecian themed hairstyle!

Francesca had a very clear idea of what she wanted me to create from the start. She had kept her stunning Amanda Wakeley, grecian style wedding dress, a total secret from all of her family and friends, and wanted a grecian themed hairstyle to compliment it. 

Firstly I waved all of Francesca's hair with a spiral wand, using a thermal protection spray, in large sections to create loose waves. Both sides were then braided and softly pinned and rolled into a low knot at the nape. The beautiful hairvine was added once the style was completed.

Charlotte is a wonderful, wedding supplier, friend of mine. I was delighted to be asked to create her wedding hairstyle.

The style had to be centered around her gorgeous hair vine, which was designed and made by Charlotte herself, at My Fayre Favourite, as was her beautiful belt. This simple hairstyle of twists and curls reflected the soft. simpleness of her stunning wedding dress from Froufrou Bridal Boutique, in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

Portia & Ore

Wow! What an amazing couple! So Beautiful!

Portia & Ore tied the knot at Penshurst Place, near Tunbridge Wells in Kent, on a sunny November day. 

I was so excited to see Portia's gorgeous hair when she came for her trial. Portia chose a soft, half up do for her hair, which beautifully suited her tiny features and the neckline of her dress. I added a few, perfectly matched, extensions to the hair to create a little more length and volume. 

To create this style I used Babyliss large tongs on the crown to create the height and volume, allowing this to cool before styling. This gave me a good base for the backcombing and teasing needed to add the shape that Portia had in mind.  On the mid lengths and ends I worked with a Babyliss spiral wand to give soft natural waves that would last.
