Balayage Hair Colouring

Balayage hair colouring techinque has really taken off this year! It’s has been popular for some time now but I have seen a definite increase in popularity the year of 2018.

It has been the most asked for hair colour from my clients these past few months. Here’s some of my recent balayage technique work:

I love to create the balayage look, it’s so creative and there’s many different types of balayage looks to create. I have also done what I call reverse balayage. This is when the hair is already blonde or light enough all over and to create the balayage look I need to create the roots with a darker colour or close to the clients natural colour (which ever is preferable to my client). This can be a little more challenging to create but I do love a challenge!

I think people are going for this look not only because it’s in fashion and on trend but because it’s easy to maintain. You tend to get a longer period of time before needing those roots touching up. Which is ideal for those who find it difficult to make time to see their hairdresser. If you would like me to create your perfect colour then get in touch and I will be happy to help.

My first wedding photoshoot

July 2017 I embarked on being apart of my very first wedding photoshoot. I worked with some very talented individuals all working together as a team (mentioned below)..

This was a new experience for me and one I wasn’t sure I’d be any good at….

Little did I know that I would love it, find a hidden talent and completely change the direction I was going to take my hairdressing business!..

I always loved being apart of weddings, creating beautiful hair for the brides and bridesmaids…

Back then I never thought my wedding hair business would take off like it has…. I’m now a finalist for an award as Best Hairdresser with the Wedding Awards 2018!!…

I’m so over the moon and happy with the growth I’m seeing in my business and being apart of someones special day…

I also love the network of wedding professionals I have become apart of!!

You can read more on my wedding hair services through my Wedding Hair blog post.

Here’s to bigger and greater success to come!

A massive thank you to all those who have supported my business so far! It is so gratefully appreciated!

Styling Hair, Weddings

Wedding Hair

It is important for you to feel confident and amazing on your wedding day and having the right hairstyle is an important part of that.

Your hair is your best accessory and needs to compliment your dress, face shape, wedding theme, other accessories, and so on. I listen to your wants and needs and consider the whole look of your wedding outfit and personalise a hairstyle to suit you and, most importantly, for it to be what you want.

Here is just some of my bridal hair work:

I feel a hair trial is important as it enables us to get to know each other and to plan and be prepared before your wedding day. From an initial consultation I create a portfolio of style ideas before the trial. Then on your trial we talk through those ideas, and yours, and come to an agreement on a hairstyle. I will also consult with you on ideas for hairstyles for the other members of the bridal party having their hair done on the day. We will make a plan and be clear on what hairstyles we are going for to make sure everything flows smoothly on your wedding day, as it’s important for you to just relax and feel pampered on your special day.

As a passionate hairstylist, the service you will receive from me will be professional and bespoke to you. Included in the bridal package is a consultation and hair trial at a location convenient to you. I am passionate about making you look and feel beautiful on your wedding day, and won’t stop until every hair detail is right and in its place.

You can find my price guide for wedding hair through this link; Weddings.

Though I do recommend getting in touch for the most accurate wedding hair quote.

New Year, New You, New Hair.

It’s the start of a new year, 2018! Wishing everyone happy hair for the new year!

Did you make any new year resolutions? If yes did it involve to kick any bad habits or to just simply make it a happy and healthy one. Did you ever take into consideration the style, colour and health of your hair? If your answer was no then why? You’re hair is your best accessory as you wear it all the time. If your hair doesn’t look and feel good then strangely enough it does have an effect on our self-confidence. This is crazy I know, how can something so simple as having the right hairstyle and hair colour have such a huge impact on our confidence. Even if you don’t spend hours on your hair styling it and you just want a style that’s easy to manage and just wash a leave it, then this is even more so important to have a hairstyle that’s right for you, so you’re not fighting with it. It’s important to be happy with your hair and find a hairdresser that listens.

If you’re struggling with your hair or can’t seem to find the right style or colour for you, then I may have a solution for you. Contact me now for a free consultation. We can discuss your hair issues, worries and concerns and come up with a possible solution to getting you the right hairstyle or colour that suits you and your lifestyle.

A Titanic Wedding

Being a fan of the amazing story and history of the ship The Titanic, doing a wedding photo-shoot here was one to remember! The Titanic Hotel wowed me with it’s stunning interior and replica of the staircase from on-board the Titanic ship itself, as seen in the featured picture above and the pictures below.

On this photo-shoot it was the same team from the Inglewood manor shoot. Photo’s from both photo-shoots made it into wedding magazines this month. This particular one is in Love Our Wedding Magazine, January 2018 issue. Here is the feature:

I loved creating beautiful, elegant, modern hairstyles on these models. When doing bridal hair I take into account the whole look which includes your dress and the theme for your wedding. I create a style bespoke to you by listening to your wants and needs and visually looking at what suits you. To get your wedding hair quote from me please get in touch.

Here’s some more great photos from this shoot:

Inglewood Manor Bridal Photo-shoot

These pictures says it all, elegance and beauty! Absolutely stunning!

Back in August 2017 I was involved in a bridal photo-shoot held at Inglewood Manor. This is a beautiful venue for a wedding with vast surroundings. I was of course styling the bridal hair for these gorgeous models Gaby (picture above) and Amy (picture below).

Our very talented photographer Stephen Walker Photography took these pictures and has written his own blog about this fantastic day we all had. It features all of the other amazingly talented and professional wedding suppliers involved who worked very hard.

 

Our work has been featured in the County Wedding Magazine this month, where the best selection of photos were put together on this two page spread of your Cheshire and Merseyside Wedding.
