Hayley’s mid-week elopement

Hayley rang me at work about six weeks ago ago to see if I’d do her hair for her wedding.

She told me it would just be her, her Man and their children.

We found a time that worked and then decided to catch up as well, as she had some hair issues she wanted to ask about.

She had some very damaged hair due to colour chemicals and her hair type.

Not ideal for hair ups, but I thought it was do-able.

As it turned out very do-able.

I’m just loving these creative images by Rachel Jordan of Two Little Starfish.

Location, Liddington Gardens. MUA Annalise Bergman.

Enjoy. Lxx


Danielle & Bobby


I had an e-mail from Danielle while I was on holiday requesting me to do her hair.

She told me she would be coming out with her Man to holiday and get married while here from the UK.

Her theme or the look she was going for was a bit vintage, sort of the forties era.

I was stoked, nothing like doing a vintage updo. Beautiful smooth styling with a bit of a victory roll here and there.

Funny she told me during the time we were there that seen me on UTube in a video about my Lorna Evans photographics workshop…very cool!!


Suzy Poole was the MUA of the day.

We ended up helping Danielle get dressed, as we often do when it’s just the bride.

We also had the joy of watching this lovely couple when Danielle walked up to Bobby…who I have to say looked amazing in his three piece suit.


Photographer was Jess Burges of Exposure Photographics & beautiful last minute flowers from Rachel Kennedy of Paradise Florist.

Enjoy these beautiful images. There are more on www.exposurenz.co.nz.

Some of last years photo shoot work

Over the winter months I tend to fill my time thinking of things that would work for competition hair work.

We have a couple of major competitions here in New Zealand run by NZARH our hairdressing association.

A couple of years back I won one of these, specifically targeting long hair. Last year I entered the Editorial section and won the Northland region. I also entered the NZ Industry competitions but didn’t place.

Hayley’s big day

I had been in contact with Haley for about 18months before her wedding. Call it good planning & I have to say far from unusual.

She had planned for a very special day with her family & friends at Waitangi in the Bay of Island.

Her wedding party was a big one, so it was an early start for me.

Six Bridesmaids, the Mother of the Bride and Haley…as I said a big one!

Anyway, images were captured by ‘Emma Rogers your moments’

Videographer was Eric Jordan of ‘Two Little Starfish’

MUA Lynnette Watson of Heavenly Faces

and your truly for hair.

enjoy. Lxx
