My intricate princess tail is still a popular stye for brides, and the vintage curl or Marcel wave is still one of my favourites, and still very much a bridal top choice too… but my latest creation, I must say… I am in love with (don’t tell my husband hehehe)… it is the bridal mohawk… which is something I initially styled on an avant garde photo shoot, and then adapted on my sister… and now I offer it to brides – it is truly stunning, and very future forward.
Because this look is so future forward, it looks fab with modern vintage, and perfect for the eccentric bride. Paired with a classic simple cut dress – it looks stunning… it also looks great with floaty wedding dresses, because it is such a structured intricate hairstyle it contrasts beautifully with delicate fabrics.
Every bride inspires me…. because each time I work with brides, I realise even more so that each woman is different in what they want for their special day… each one very unique in their hair choices too, and often I find that brides want a style that is completely different to the way they usually wear their hair…
Check out one of my beautiful brides photographed above… She combines the stunning structure of the Marcel wave, often worn over one shoulder by brides, we decided on it falling over both of her bare shoulders… this compliments her super sexy, super glam low cur wedding dress, mainly because it is off the shoulder and symmetrical. The slide in her hair is subtle and picks up on the intricate beading and detail of her dress… And because her dress is so detailed, the simple but perfect hair really sets it off. Her dark hair matches her defined dark eyes and eyebrows and as her hair lightens towards the dress, the softens the whole look.
This is an ultra glam, sexy bridal look, that really combines the modern woman with the vintage vibe.
Be inspired by other brides!
I gave my advice in the bridal mag A Kentish Ceremony… Top Tip from me, Vicki Lord, award-winning bridal hairstylist… And it was a lovely surprise to see one of my gorgeous brides on the cover too…
Okay so not all of my work is glam… there is a lot of juggling and project management and planning involved and training others, plus staying in touch with what’s going on in the hair and beauty industry myself… and a part of this is working with great professionals including wedding suppliers, and photographers. I am always ding photo shoots too – many I am booked for, others involve collaborative creation between my team and others. Here are some behind the scenes images from a shoot I did a couple of days ago at my home based studio with two lovely models, a great makeup artist, Nicola, and a fab photographer, Darren Brade.
The models are wearing Gillian Million hair accessories, which are absolutely stunning… can’t wait to show you all the final photos.
