I have had an amazing year of ups and downs… and everything has led to much learning, teaching and of course lots of hair.
My highlights have been winning best bridal hairdresser for The Kent Wedding Awards for the third year running and after being a finalist for The Nationals in 2014, I knew it was a tough one to achieve, but I am thrilled that in 2015 I won best bridal hairstylist for Kent and the South East.
As far as 2016 goes, I have a few VIP weddings lined up, plus lots of lovely brides booked in, some shoots and some exciting collaborations… so hair’s here’s to a fabulous New Year to everyone out there.
I have shouted about this since Monday – I can’t believe it, I am so honoured to be the best bridal hairdresser for London and South East – wow… The Nationals was a fun night, and I wore signature black, my sleek bob and of course my supportive (not to mention gorgeous) husband on my arm… I literally am so grateful for my brides and all of my clients, it is so lovely to be recognised for some thing you do, especially when I love working with hair – this is all the cherry on the cake. Maybe it is this passion that shines through my work, who knows, but I promise that I will keep on learning new and wonderful ways with hair so that I can continue to deliver for all of my brides and clients… I know GUSH GUSH GUSH – but completely blown away – fab week.
I had a fab time meeting up with Shona McGarty again, in order to create another hair masterpiece for her red carpet look for The British Soap Awards 2012. Shona is close friends with Hetti Bywater, who plays Lucy Beale in Eastenders, and so I did her hair too on Saturday the 28th April. Emily Rose was on the makeup, and Nina Sobers was the girls’ stylist for the event, choosing dresses from Tina Lobondi, who actually made each girl a bespoke dress. The girls had heaps of red carpet coverage, and Look Magazine chose both of their looks in their top-five. I created a high bun up-do for Shona, to add to her sophisticated Angelina Jolie inspired look, and for Hetti, I went for a 1920’s inspired up-do, with finger-wave detail and delicate curls.
