What trends have you noticed in hair styling and how do you see this being adapted into bridal looks?
We have noticed modern and romantic styling coming through as a trend. Effortless ponytails and textured low buns are good interpretations of this trend. We are also seeing lots of volume come through in our up styling work with loose, soft styles that compliment the current fashion trends from the bridal designers.
Are you mobile?
Yes we are!
What advice would you give brides to be searching for that perfect bridal hair style?
Find styles that suit your wedding theme, hair type and your own personality and style. Select a hairstyle that works with all the other elements of your wedding (dress, flowers etc). Look through magazines and online for inspiration pictures and create a mood board or small collection of pictures. Don’t look for one picture that is your perfect hair style but rather look for elements of a style that you like (e.g. part line, amount of volume, waves etc). Come to the trial with an open mind and let your stylist talk through your ideas and your perfect style will form out of that.
Tell us a little bit about your process, from enquiry to booking stages, to delivery of your services on the wedding day.
An initial enquiry is made, if we are available then an information pack is emailed to the bride, we then take a booking fee, we are always on hand to answer any questions from the bride about all aspects of her wedding, the trial is booked in for 4-8 weeks before the wedding day, we then turn up at to style hair on the day at the brides location.
Given the opportunity, what are your three make up items you would take along to a deserted island?

Is a hair trial an essential part of the wedding hair styling process?
Absolutely! A free trial is included in all of our packages and gives the bride and opportunity to see what their hair will look like on their wedding day.

She will also take photos of the finished style and bring them along on the wedding day so that you have the opportunity to fine tune and make any changes you would like to your hair.
