Today’s wedding is bursting with colour and is full of English country goodness! Alice and...
Today I have my first ‘Guest Blogger’. Thanks to James of James White Hair for doing this for me…………enjoy!!!
I honed my skills in the hot house of the session world, working on photo shoots and fashion shows; fertile environments which inspire ideas and where all innovation is made. This is where I get my inspiration and ideas for hair styling and my product range.
I spend my time between the salon, bridal work and session styling with photographers and working on seminars for product companies. My passion and fresh approach to hairdressing has lead to my work being featured in the national press. Reward for what I love feels like cheating. I believe hair styles should be refined and allowed to evolve.
I enjoy a non compromising attention to detail to make quality. My aim is the highest standard, customer service is included and I deliver!
“James’s wedding hair dressing is for a sophisticated and discerning client; one who appreciates style,
wants the very best there is and wants to look stunning! James is known for his artistic eye, vision and
creating signature hair styles.”
There is something special with having the privilege to be there on the most important day of someone’s life let alone being a part of it. I do Bridal Hair quite simply because it provides me with some much fulfilment that I can do what I love for someone else and make them feel incredible!
Bridal hair has always had an old fashion feel around it for many years and I can understand why. I hope I can change people’s perception and fears with wedding hair. While a major part of a bride’s dream wedding is a spectacular gown, a beautifully romantic hairstyle is an essential ingredient of the bridal fantasy. I believe my style is unique, I like simple, simply done. Nothing to fancy, just a timeless style that complements you.
Today is your greatest red carpet moment. As soon as you select a date, you should begin selecting a hairstyle.
As you look through bridal magazines for dresses, pay attention to hairstyles and save the pages of those you like. This will help you communicate with your stylist, even if in one photo it is the style you like and in another it may be the texture or veil placement. Choose a stylist that you feel comfortable with and has a style you desire. Visit them just for a blow dry to get a feeling of how they work.
When choosing your style you should take many things into consideration, such as weather, climate of location, as well as the style of your dress. For example if you have naturally curly hair that tends to frizz and you’re having a summer wedding outside, choose a style that works with the humidity. If your dress has an old Hollywood flair you may want to experiment with high glamour!
Remember that you will look back at these memories for the rest of your life. Your wedding hair should be timeless and modern but not trendy. You should also be very comfortable with your style…remember confidence equals beauty.
Now that you feel great about your hairstyle, what about those bridesmaids? A wedding is like a mini fashion show. One thing that helps fashion shows look so spectacular is that there is a common theme to all the models’ hair. For example Jessica Simpson’s wedding hair was romantic, so they chose a “wavy, romantic texture” for all of her bridesmaids, but styled them all differently to express their special uniqueness. Having this common element helps keep the look of the wedding chic and elegant.
Key 2010 bridal trends
A Romantic LookIf you’re marrying in a garden setting, a Victorian-style gown, or you just want to capture an ultra-romantic effect, try a more unstructured hairdo.
Up-and-downCan’t decide if you want your hair up or down? Try a little of both! Pin up the front half of the head in a simple sweep or more elaborate loops, and let the rest hang down the back.
Rocking with the vintage feel will require a beautiful and simple style. Try a highly polished chignon in the lower nape of your head or a classic bun.
Love the Audrey Hepburn look? Try a classic French twist. Because this style works best with hair in tip-top condition, start deep-conditioning treatments well before the big day.
Red Carpet glam
A basic style can look very sophisticated. Simply work with a soft curl/wave through the hair. For a more glamorous look, create body with backcombing at the roots.
