It's the Summer holidays and my 2 children have been staying with their grandparents in Scotland this week, anyone who has little people in their life will understand the ongoing juggle that is the Summer holiday..so I have been working non stop in order to fit everything in.
As a result I had booked in lots of trials, I usually get booked up quite far in advanced with photo shoots, colours and cuts and weddings so it’s been lovely to have met and had trials with so many brides this week.
It reminds me how much I love my job and how lucky I am to work with so many lovely people. Thank you all for sharing your creative ideas with me and letting me be creative with your hair. And for the tea!
Obviously I can’t show you any pics as they are all well kept secrets but there are some fabulous looks coming soon. I’m very much looking forward to meeting all my brides again on their wedding day in the coming months.
For those of you who are having hair trials soon, either with myself or your own hairstylist there are a few things to think about:
- Wash your hair so that it is clean and dry when they arrive (either the night or morning before your appointment)
- Preparing the room- Your stylist will require a low backed chair, a table for their kit and a plug for any applicances they need.
- It's worth wearing something with a similar neckline to your dress, failing that a vest so that you can fashion the neckline out of a towel or simliar when the time comes.
- Make up makes a big difference to how you look and feel when seeing yourself in the mirror. It's nice to have some on to give you the full affect of your hair.
- Get some pictures together to show your stylist your taste, ideas and likes, it saves A LOT of time as a picture says a thousand words ( well, they help to clarify thoughts anyway)
- Keep an open mind, just like when you are trying on dresses - What you love may not suit you, so try things that your stylist suggests. We do know our stuff I promise!
- Lastly, remember that trials are for choosing the style, looking at shapes, outline and profiles. To do this we may need to do the style a few times. I barely use any product on the trial so that I can take the hair down and start again. On the day the look will always be more polished and 'finished' looking as it will only be put into one style. Your style,
