One of the more interesting things about being a hairdresser working in a salon day in day out as well as spending many weekends doing weddings, is that I get to experience working with all sorts of difficult hair issues. Be that texture, volume, damage or length. When you become my bridal client we have to work through those issues as well.
One of the things that I offer you when booking is a ‘Hair Trial’. This is designed so that you meet me, we get on the ‘same page’ regarding the style you are after and I get a handle on your hair. I will always tell you in that trial that I’m aiming for 80% of that look. It doesn’t matter if its not perfect in trial but it can give me time to perfect it for you before your wedding.
So in saying that I also get the odd surprise regarding styles, that without a bit of creative thinking just won’t happen. These surprises are best handled at the trial stage. This gives me time to problem solve thus reaching the best styling outcome.
It can be as simple as adding clip-in/glue in extensions for fullness or length to your hair. As well as the appropriate products to work with your hair type. It may mean adding hidden padding(netted synthetic hair) into the style to achieve volume. It could involve missing hair due to chemical or physical damage and styling it so its not noticable. Sometimes its about how I prepare your hair. Part of your hair could need smoothing, while another part needs curling.
Doing wedding hair all of the above has happened. For me knowing about your hair and the style you are wanting makes most things possible. Contact me and lets hatch a plan.
