Islay & Jimmy

Such a fun, colourful, summer wedding, full of prettiness and blooms!

 

Islay wanted a soft, natural boho bride, hairstyle to compliment her gorgeous dress from Minna.

The hair was gently tonged to add soft waves and a few braids were added randomly here and there for interest. A few dried flowers, from The Artisan Flower Company, were poked into the hair to form a crown.

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.
