Well, don’t we all have a little time on our hands right now? This is true, but, if you’re like me and have a four and five year old at home, that time for your self is very limited. So I have enforced that so am still working (albeit not from my little pink shop) and I am here and blogging!
I’m in my pyjamas its 12 o’clock, the house is a mess and the children are being entertained on their kindles.
I’m trying to stay positive, as most of us are, I have actually settled into being at home quite well, we all know it’s for the best. So I am using the time to get some recommendations out there on wedding planning.
Normally by the time a bride books and visits, they have their venue arranged and their photography sorted. And some might have florist done too. But I very often get asked for recommendations on ’Bridal Hair and Make Up’ so I have put together with inspiration from @lauralandfox a list of recommended hairdressers. whilst we’re on lockdown I’ll aim to cover most aspects including best bridal underwear recommendations, makeup artists for bridal, florists e.t.c Oh and definitely shoes, we all know I love a shoe.I haven't listed these in any particular order except the first Hair Stylist.
First up is Tiffany Rose Hair, I had to feature Tiff first as she is my hairdresser, Tiff is based in London but travels nationally and internationally. Head to her Insta for a snippet of her work.
Next is @alchemy_hairandmakeup
I love this undone loose look with a super cute bow, I am actually dying for a bride to wear a bow.
Next up is @emma_kim_hair
I have worked with Emma on quite a few shoots now, all bridal related so I have been lucky enough to see her work first-hand, she is the perfect stylist for the modern, relaxed glam bride.
I mean who doesn't LOVE a bow, I am desperate for one of my brides to style their hair with a bow, and now you know who can do it for you @abigailconstanzabridal
Natasha from @sbhm_stylists and I met at The UK Wedding Awards where Natasha was a finalist! If that doesn't tell you how good she is, then browse through the Insta for inspo.
Kind of a little bit of a stalker of @knotyouraveragebride for her work and for general smashing it at life, there are so many images I could share and I fully intend on working with her in the future.
The very beautiful hair up next is @hero.hairstylist and again too many to pick from. But would you just look at this...
O.k one for you total GLAM Babes is Botias @botiashairandmakeup, I am lucky enough to stock Botias Hair accessories and have met Boe. She is the queen of GLAM, I have never seen a Botias wedding and not swooned, they're luxe, polished and oh so beautiful.
@rossmclaughlanhair is goals, I envy the brides who get to have their hair done with him. This definitely my jam.
@becca_hair_makeup I am pretty sure this beautiful half up, half down is what most of my brides are trying to describe to me when I say 'How are you having your hair?' it's perfectly unperfect.
@hairbyoliviajames with this chic relaxed bun, I know this looks so simple but in reality we all know it takes an expert to create something so beautiful.
@charlottemedfordbridal I am pretty pleased with any photo that features stars and moons, but, without the accessories you can how creatively Charlotte has styled this loose, relaxed up-do.
@katyavalentinahair another win for the glam, this would look beautiful on Bride or bridesmaids right? I LOVE a wavy pony, I just need an excuse to have one.
@charlottehairandmakeup just simple, relaxed, besutiful styled, shiny hair. Totally dreamy. Enjoy.
@wildflowerhaircompany I think the name says all, if you're after something that bit different. But, still oh so beautiful.
@crownandmuse cool name for cool stylist, this bridal pony is totally chic and elegant remaining delicate and pretty with the accessories.
@vsthair O.k I am totally biased to any stylist that uses pearls in hair, but this not only styled so beautifully look at that briad, I am a total novice but I think it's a fishtail braid? Anyway, whatever it is is, it's beautiful.
@rosiehartstylist saving this for my pearly section, how incredible is this wavy glam pearl look by Rosie? It's just so beautiful. So so beautiful.
@victoria_ralphhair and this beautiful braided up-do, I have so many brides tell me they love a chunky braid, well here is the perfect example...
Last but most definitely not least is @alicetapermakeup half up, half down relaxed waves.
I have listed these with inspiration from @Lauren from @laurelandfox who has on her instagram more recommended Hair Stylists. if you think we have missed any please do not hesitate to let me know. We love to know of more stylists to recommend.
Next Blog will be Make Up Artists.
I hope this was enjoyable and helpful.
