Sara and her New Forest wedding at Bartley Lodge Hotel

I love a Christmas wedding, having had my own wedding at this time 8 years ago now! So when Sara asked me to provide services of hair and makeup for her festive wedding I was delighted.

Sara, not one for wearing makeup or having her hair styled very often, wanted me to create a really delicate makeup design using silvers and greys through the eyes. The key words were soft and light, so I went in with a really gentle touch. As Sara has a half shaved style with platinum blonde locks to one side, I just added a subtle wave to soften the general look and provide a more traditional ‘bridal’ look with Sara’s signature modern stance.

Client Love…

“Thank you so much for making me feel like a princess yesterday, I’ve never been lucky enough to look in the mirror and like what I’ve seen before!

Roo’s face when she saw me was a picture and I will never be able to thank you enough for making me feel so special.

Words are not enough, but thank you so much.”

I’ll fully admit I don’t know everything about hairstyling. Products, techniques and styles change. That’s why I totally believe stylists need to constantly be seeking more. More knowledge and experience is so valuable in this industry, plus it’s so much fun and such a buzz connecting with others all striving to learn x
